Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 Direct Download Links, Premiere too

September 24th, 2014 73 comments

[UPDATE (October 2016) – These still work to download the old Elements 13 trials. We also now have the new Elements 15 Direct Download Links!]

In keeping with our custom of publishing the direct download links for major Adobe products such as Creative Cloud, CS6, Lightroom 6/CC, and Acrobat DC, below you’ll find the direct links from Adobe’s servers for the free trials of the new releases of Photoshop Elements 13 and Premiere Elements 13, for both Windows and Mac OS.

Direct Download Links for Adobe Elements 13 - Get It Now

These links go to the authentic and secure files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine, safe, legal, and will not change. They are especially useful when you are unable to down­load Adobe’s free trials via other means – often due to difficulties with the Adobe Download Assistant or Akamai Download Manager…

With the links provided below, you can use your own browser’s download capability (without DLM), or another download manager of your choice.

For setting up PSE 13 and/or PRE 13 on Windows, each program consists of two down­loaded files: an .exe and a 7-Zip file (.7z). The .exe file will only work (and install) once the .7z file is fully down­loaded and resides in the same folder. For the Mac, it’s just a single .dmg file for each program.

In order to properly run Photoshop & Premiere Elements 13, your computer must meet Adobe’s minimum system requirements for the products. See below for what’s new & different in this release.

When readers ask us, “What’s new in the Adobe CC 2014 release?” – they usually mean what’s been added in terms of product features and improvements compared to previous versions such as CC 2013 or CS6.

And for the most part, we’ve answered that question in our prior article here:

 » What Are the Differences Between Adobe CC 2014 vs. CS6, CS5, CS4, CS3?

But there’s a larger picture as well – in terms of what’s going on with pricing and what’s included with the different Creative Cloud plans, and whether/how Adobe is keeping its promise to evolve and bring new innovation to CC subscribers. So we’re going to try to tackle that here.

The 2015 edition of the Creative Cloud is the most powerful and versatile toolset Adobe has ever produced and we’re seeing a lot of demand for good training resources to learn how to best use this fast-growing product

Get the Free "Adobe CC Design Basics" eBook!

Last year we posted details on over 1,000 pages of free ebooks for CS6.  But if you’re just getting started with the core CC 2015 design tools, what’s better than a step-by-step book that will teach you the essentials of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign from the ground up?

Fortunately there’s a very helpful new book you can download that will teach you all of this for free, courtesy of author Professor Thomas Payne… The way the book does this is by intro­ducing and explain­ing the tools in a logical way that builds upon what is previ­ously learned. These applica­tions present a vast array of buttons and gadgets that can be over­whelming to the new user. This book makes sense of it all, not showing how every­thing works, but instead giving a found­ation and a path to learn about all those controls and what they can do for you.
