you can set exclusions in hips via the policy:
Hips Intrusion prevention 7.0.3 application blocking > application blocking rules (windows) > setting a new rule called photoshop.exe application path photoshop.exe path only.
Let me know if that works for you.

What you are describing and showing in the screenshots seems very unusual and also suspicious behaviour.
Can I suggest that you most certainly run a full scan on the machine and confirm there is nothing malicious on the machine.
Unfortunately, our friends at Adobe tend to have a few suspcious functions in several of their applications. This type of behavior isn't unusual to find in Acrobat but I'm not surprised to find it in Photoshop, too.
Usually you can simply ignore these as these suspcious functions are simply dropped. However, if it is preventing some useful function the you may need to write an exception.
