I share a laptop with my family and have my own account on the laptop. I wanted to download the Photoshop CC trial to see whether it's hard to use - although, when I did go to download the trial it wouldn't let me and would only let me update the software. It's fustrating because there's no way which I can even use the trial now because I'm guessing one of my family members had already downloaded a trial which now prevents me from downloading it. Is there anything I could do? or should I just carry on using another software like Gimp.
What operating system? Does your user account have Admin rights? If Windows, can you access the Control Panel > Programs and features and see if Photoshop is already installed? Can you ask the other users if they have used Photoshop?
