Hello!

Another very quick tip to start off the week for those, who like me, prefer normal, standalone versions of their software instead of wonderful monthly membership fee like Adobe’s new CC (Creative Cloud)

I was installing Photoshop CS6 last night and I kept entering the darn license key, but it wouldn’t activate… Until I restarted the application. Only then did Photoshop communicate with Adobe’s licensing servers. lol

Steps

Enter license > close Photoshop > re-open it again > Joy!

Finally, in case someone has other rleated issues, I’ve added a link to Adobe’s help page on its activation process.

Enjoy!

Sirus

Hello! Quick Photoshop troubleshooting today!

Are you unable to get Adobe Photoshop CS6 to recognize a newly installed font and yet, it’s clearly in your C:\Windows\Fonts folder?

Well here’s two possible solutions!:

a) Install the font in Windows

Once you have your new font, simply right-click it and choose “install“. This will automatically install the font in Windows. Then restart your computer and your new font should be available system wide for every installed applications.

b) Copy new font directly into Photoshop’s fonts folder

1. Close Photoshop, then copy that new font in Photoshop’s Fonts folder located here:

Program Files (x86) > Common Files > Adobe > Fonts

2. Reopen Photoshop and you should be good to go!

Enjoy!
