I am a long time user of PSE9 and was accustomed to see it connecting to Adobe when PSE9 was launched.
Beginning this past weekend, PSE9 cannot connect to Adobe via the app. There is an error message that states the "Photoshop.com services are not available and to try again later". It also states I should check my network connection. Error code 400 is indicated.
I can sign into Adobe using my Adobe ID with no issue via thier website. Is there an issue with Photoshop.com? Any information is appreciated.
Yes, the issue is that photoshop.com is gone. If you had any photos there you should have received a bunch of emails from adobe about how they were going to move your pictures to revel instead. That's complete and they've shut down the photoshop.com servers. If you want to use revel you can't do it from within PSE--it's not a direct substitute for PSE.
Log out, turn off syncing, and stop using the welcome screen. Instead go into the program files or program files(x86) in windows or the applications folder on a mac, find the actual .exe/application files for the editor and/or organizer, and make a desktop shortcut/dock icon, and use that in future to start PSE.
