I got the Creative Cloud Photography Plan but do not have the OS requirements to handle the latest version of Photoshop. I am doing a 30 day trial of Photoshop CS6 but I am confused whether I will be able to download this yearlong as part of my cloud membership. Or do I need to upgrade my OS so I can download Photoshop CC?
Your system is compatible with CS6 and will be.
However versions of the product keeps on upgrading. In order to install and use upgraded version ,please upgrade your operating system.
Are you running XP or Vista?
I would suggest upgrading the operating system before subscribing then being forced to use 3 year old superseded software due to OS restrictions (and presumably dated hardware).
