Hi. I recently bought a Windows 7 Acer Aspire laptop.

I tried downloading Photoshop Portable Edition, but when it says "Building TWAIN Items," Windows 7 shows a MsgBox saying the program isn't responding.

Any help?

I run Photoshop CS4 on Windows 7 Home Premium. Portable is probably meant for things like flash drives. Downloading the regular version should solve the issue.

And, if I may ask, what version of Windows are you running?

You can purchase a legal version or download a trial version of Adobe Photoshop here or Adobe Photoshop Essentials here (Windows) or here (OS X). You can also download free alternatives GIMP and Paint.NET here and here, respectively. There is a portable version of GIMP available here, as well. There is not a legally available portable version of Adobe Photoshop to the best of my knowledge, and trying to support a cracked version of a program is not only irresponsible, but nigh-impossible due to the changes made to the program in the cracking process.

PM me if you have computer troubles. I work in IT for a living and can probably solve your problems. My rate is $expensive/hr, but I'm still cheaper than Creep Squad and, unlike them, will actually get the job done or let you know if I can't.

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

All portable versions of photoshop are cracked warez and will most likely contain viruses.

Best option to do is download the trial version from the adobe website and if you like it, buy it. If you don't like it, use GIMP
