Checking for Updates and Patches

As time passes, Photoshop—like any other program—will change. There are two types of changes to an program: updates and patches. Updates are enhancements to a program such as a new feature, option, or command. Patches are problems discovered after the public release of the program. The good news is that both updates and patches are free, and once downloaded are self-installing. Adobe gives you two ways to check for changes. You can check on your own from the Adobe Web site, or directly through the Adobe Updater. The Adobe Updater Preferences dialog box () allows you to set update options for Photoshop and other installed Adobe products, such as Bridge. You can set the update preferences to check for updates monthly and automatically download them or ask before performing the download.
