Direct Download Links for All Official Adobe CS4 and CS3 Free Trials

[UPDATE (June 2015) – These still work to download the old CS3/CS4 trials from years ago. But if you’d like to download Adobe’s new CC 2015 release then see our full set of direct links.]

Even though Creative Suite 6 is out and is a phenomenal release, some folks still need the earlier versions for various reasons: 32-bit vs 64-bit (e.g., After Effects and Premiere Pro), compatibility with other software or systems owned, the rest of your class or company is still on CS4, you need to reinstall but no longer have your original disks or download file, etc… But this older software is now hard to find – Adobe doesn’t publicize or provide a web interface for it. So if you’ve been searching high and low all over the Internet to find the official Adobe trial downloads for CS4 or CS3, well your search is over!

CS3/CS4 No Longer Sold – Get Adobe CS6 Now

Below are two tables for CS4 trial downloads in major languages. These links go to the auth­entic and original CS4 files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine and will not change. For Windows, each program consists of two files, an .exe and a 7-Zip file (.7z). The .exe file will only work once the .7z package is fully down­loaded and resides in the same location. For the Mac, it’s just a single .dmg file for each program.

There are also optional “extra content” (or functional content) downloads included here for most tools that consist of one or two additional files, which you can install separately after the main product is installed. It typically includes fonts, templates, documentation, etc.

Special: Legally download dozens of free Adobe books for a limited time!

The supported languages vary by product. The Western Euro­pean languages can include French/Français, German/Deutsch, Italian/Italiano, Dutch/Nederlands, Norwegian/Norsk, Danish/Dansk, Finnish/Suomi, Swedish/Svenska, Portuguese/Português, and Spanish/Español. To see which product supports which languages, visit the main Adobe trials page and then click on the selection menu for whichever product(s) you’d like to try – it will tell you which languages are currently available.

We suggest using a browser other than Internet Explorer to download any of the files above. They can be quite large and IE has been known to drop the extension (like “.exe”) from the Windows filename. If this happens and you can’t open a file, then just rename it to add back the extension. But generally, using Firefox or Chrome will work better – and if you have any issues getting the downloads to work with one browser, then try another.

*** Note: If you have any problems getting the files to download or install, be sure to read the earlier comments on this page – as most questions have already been asked and answered below!

Creative Suite 3 – Adobe CS3 Downloads

Here are the links for the official CS3 trials in English, all downloaded from Adobe servers. For CS3 on Windows, there are almost no .7z files; usually it’s only .exe files. For the Mac, it’s all .dmg files. All other instructions remain the same as for CS4 above.

Download New Adobe CC 2015 Free Trials (Direct Links)

If you’re looking for CS2, CS, or an even earlier release, you can try digging around on Adobe’s FTP server for older products (but that’s really only for advanced users).

It is strongly advised not to use unknown sites or sources to download Adobe software, as increasingly these files are being used to deliver viruses and trojans onto users’ computers.

    hello sir.. i want to know if i want to download cs 4 master collection for windows . which file should I download? … file 1, file 2, or file 3? and what is the difference between those files? thanks :D
    this website is really awesome!

    • Hi Wahyu, these links are old but they do still function – but you have to make sure you are carefully following the step-by-step download instructions given near the top of this page.

      Following those instructions (first) is required by Adobe’s servers and is essential, otherwise the direct links won’t work for you – and you’ll get an access or permissions denied message instead.

      If you have any difficulties, then try with a different web browser, computer, or Internet connection – all while still following those directions.

      To start the installation process, just put/download the application files into the same folder on your computer, and then run or double-click the ‘File 1’ – which should be an .EXE file on Windows or a .DMG file on Mac.

      If you’ve downloaded the optional Extra Content (File 3/4), then you would install that separately afterwards.
