This mother fucking company. I need to use some of their software like photoshop and illustrator but I can't play a damn monthly fee for their creative cloud shit. Any anons know how one might gain access to these programs without a blood sucking subscription?

do keygens not work any more?
people pirating their software is part of their business model. they assume people will get it for free and once they actually make money on the software they can start paying.

keygens do work.
Also it's mostly corporations that pay those fees because they would face legal troubles if they released thing with pirated versions of products.
Same reason why Unity/Unreal just let you do whatever for free if you check that you're a rando,but if you tell them you're a company of 50+ people,they ask you for money.

The website is a bitch and will detect if you have adblockers installed

Though I remember it was still possible to circumvent it with umatrix

The link I posted was for photoshop, get familiar with the site and find illustrator on your own

Use GIMP instead, stop paying money grubbing corporations when open-source and free software exists.

Is there a specific reason as to why?
is something preventing you from using other software ?
does it really have to be exactly that software specifically ?

You could use Inkscape instead of Illustrator for vector graphics

You could use gimp instead of Photoshop or krita if you need more art related features

all these suggestions are free and open source software and they have many plugins that you can add for increased functionality.

Krita's the only decent one out of those three, they are run by the KDE people who are more open to listening to user feedback and continually add new features similar to the team at Blender. There are still lots of edge cases where CSPaint is more convenient to work with though, and it still feels like beta software. GIMP is run by the stubborn Gnome people who refuse to entertain the idea of considering any user feedback regarding UI or features, and Inkscape has only been in maintenance mode and hasn't had feature update for over a decade.

Suggest better alternatives that are also open source.
If you use programs that require a lot of learning investment, and you use proprietary software, the vendor is holding your learning investment hostage, and you are likely to have your skills randomly depreciated.

At the moment image manipulation editors are in a dry spell, the next step is to have object recognition and high level object manipulation, but in order to make that work fast and reliable, computers need to have something like tensor flow microprocessor cores and cameras need to have depth sensors that embed depth information into images.

The proprietary image editors are trying to avoid building robust object recognition like what i described by using large reference databases instead, that is a very foolish attempt at cataloguing infinity. And free software devs have their hands tied because they have to wait for consumer hardware to catch up, or open-hardware like RiskV mature enough to be accessible.

Try out Affinity if you're deadset on purchasing your software, they've got equivalent programs for most of the big stuff Adobe offers and it's a one time purchase as opposed to being monthly. They usually have sales that go on throughout the year, so you could just pirate it to familiarize yourself and see if you like it then buy it on sale. Think I got Affinity Publisher for about $30 when it was on sale last time and its been working well for my hobby projects so far, I've heard generally good things about their Photoshop/Illustrator equivalents.

They released Inkscape 1.0 last year and Inkscape 1.1 this year… It's not dead they are adding new features.
