Yes, you can download Photoshop CC for windows directly from http://www.adobe.com/downloads/en/products/photoshop-free/. Photoshop is not licensed as a commercial product, and the only limitation on its use is that it must be freely available and it must run on your computer.
Can I apply my custom images to Photoshop?
You can not, but this is not a limitation because Photoshop is free software. Instead, the only limitation for custom images is that they cannot be edited without an update. It is not enough to tell Photoshop what image you want to change to; you need to specify all of the information. You can tell Photoshop what fields you want. This will make Photoshop perform all of the necessary modifications, such as colors and fonts and so on, without any changes to your actual image. If you are doing this for a private application, you can’t ask Photoshop for permission, and as long as you specify all of the necessary fields, you should be OK.
There is no such thing as an update to Adobe Photoshop. You must download the software, compile it, install it, and then you edit your images to suit your purposes.
Does the free version of Photoshop contain the functionality I need?
Adobe Photoshop is not free software, it is not an OS, and it cannot function as an OS. You do need a license to download the software, but this is not the same as a license to edit the software. For example, the Adobe Photoshop Suite cannot be used to edit any program that ships with Windows or OS X. It can only be used to read and edit a range of image files, including images from any version of Adobe image editing software. Adobe Photoshop is not free software; you cannot use the software for free-lance writing.
To edit the software, you need a license. For instance, Adobe Photoshop CS4, 6 and 7 allow you to edit any file. The license does not mean Adobe Photoshop is free for use with that file.
You do need a license to work with Adobe Photoshop. For example, if Photoshop CS1, 3 and 4 allow you to edit an image with the program, you do need a license to use the program. An Adobe licence does not give you the ability to modify the files; you need a licence unless these files are part of a commercial or program-license-free library.
Adobe Photoshop is, at its core, a photo editing application. You
