Free Photoshop on Mac OS X? Photoshop Trial Reset!

Free Adobe Photoshop - Trial Extender

Update 2.11.2018 for Adobe Photoshop 2019

Mac Patcher: link is in reddit thread. Trial reset is not ready yet.

For windows users there is already a crack.

Adobe Photoshop 2018

You don’t need crack or keygen anymore. All you have to do, to extend your trial period, is change number in TrialKey element in application.xml. This file is located in /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop/AMT.

1. You can navigate there with this command:

cd /Library/Application\ Support/Adobe/Adobe\ Photoshop\ */AMT

2. Then you have to open the file and edit it. You can use just TextEdit app.

open -a TextEdit application.xml

3. Now find the TrialSerialNumber Data key:

<Data key="TrialSerialNumber">911997074887979240115317</Data>

4. And increment this number by one:

<Data key="TrialSerialNumber">911997074887979240115318</Data>

Now you can try to run Photoshop, if it works you are done, if not continue.

5. Delete content of folder SLCache and SLStore

/Library/Application\ Support/Adobe/SLCache
/Library/Application\ Support/Adobe/SLStore

6. Delete hidden files that look like this .G6A4G0095A60, .2RC5B2105A60, .A1C6B5105G64


And that’s it. Now when you relaunch Photoshop you will be prompted to login and you should see fresh 7 days of trial.

Download (for version below 19.1.x)

If you can’t manage do it yourself, you can use this automator app. You can open it in and check, that all it does is described above. Remember to bypass not signed app in Preferences -> Security & Privacy when nothing happens.


Other Trial Resets

Other trial resets are described in these articles: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Premiere Pro and Sketch.


This one is for study purposes and demonstration how easy is to bay-pass trial period. Any modification of any software is not recommended and you do it on your own risk.
