With only a very minimal amount of quota left for the remainder of the month I want to choose when and how the updater downloads the update, not on its own.
Advice and guidance will be highly appreciated, thank you :) That indicates that the updater is a separate program which is automatically started when Windows starts.
If you've done all the troubleshooting and reached the point of un-installing Photoshop to re-install, Archive install, clean install, or Erase your hard drive to "nuke" problems like force quit required, won't open and program errors, be sure to first Deactivate Photoshop so you don't waste one of your limited Activations when you re-Activate.
Deactivate before uninstalling or you may need to contact Adobe customer service to explain the problem and perform a manual telephone activation.
Martin Evening’s Adobe Photoshop for Photographers titles have become classic reference sources for photographers at all skill levels.
The first Windows version (v2.5) appeared in 1992, layers were introduced in version 3.0 in 1994, multiple undo history in version 5.0 in 1998, and camera RAW support was added with version 7.0 in 2002.
I have been through photoshops preferences and I can't find anything relating to this (Also photoshop wasn't even open at the time the auto updater was downloading the file).
I would go off and bush my teeth have a shave etc, only to come back and see a new thing in the taskbar auto downloading an update for photoshop!
The following chapter then goes on to explain the alternative options such as when you use Camera Raw in Photoshop to process your digital capture images.
Practical workshops show you how to master the essential techniques, such as optimizing an image for prepress, color correction, retouching techniques, layers palette management, toning a black and white image, rendering textures and so on.
