Is this *free* Mac Adobe Photoshop link for real?


I have need for editing an animated GIF for an RTS project on my Mac, but my one Windows computer died.
I'd like to download this photoshop for Mac but I am not sure if it is really free, and works?
Is it a scam download?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Well the link will ultimately take you to Adobe's site so that part is OK, no nasty surprises to install.

You won't get any free goodies though and the link owner will get a little more advertising traffic and a fraction of a cent.

But no, there's no legal, free downloads for Photoshop except for their own 30 day trial prior to licencing

If you only need Photoshop for a single job, download a trial, do your GIFs and be done with it.

If you plan to use it for a longer time, it's $15/mo for the Photography pack of Creative Cloud.

If you need something free, you could get "The Gimp", which is OpenSource and probably just as good as photoshop:

The applications folder won't allow me to move it into it, because it is from an unidentified developer.
There isn't a "do it anyway" button.
