I have the package of Adobe CS5 programs and am wondering how it works through the Creative Cloud. More specifically, does the CS5 programs reside in the Creative Cloud? Say I am on an airplane, will I be able to edit my projects on my laptop with the cloud? Or do I need the internet to operate these programs through the cloud? Thank you!
First, CS5 was issued LONG before the Cloud came into being, so it is not part of the Cloud
Second, even Cloud program do not RUN from the Cloud, they are only downloaded & installed & activated using the Cloud
So... you must install what you have on your computer to be able to use it
