Direct Download Links for Adobe Photoshop & Premiere Elements 9

Direct download links for the Adobe Elements 9 family

[UPDATE (September 2015) – These still work to download the old Elements 9 trials. We also now have the new Elements 14 Direct Download Links!]

Continuing our history of providing the direct download links for major Adobe software such as Creative Cloud, CS6, Lightroom 6/CC, and Acrobat DC, below you’ll find the direct links for the brand new releases of Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9. And for the first time ever, Adobe is offering both products for both Windows and the Mac.

The links given below go to the authentic and secure files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine 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 Akamai Download Manager (the Adobe DLM). With the links provided below, you can use your browser’s down­load capability, or another download manager of your choice.

For Elements on Windows (both PSE 9 and PRE 9), 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 location. For the Mac, it’s just a single .dmg file for each program.

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

Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 (PSE 9) Direct Download Links

Photoshop Elements 9 – Windows (1.75 GB):   File 1   File 2

Photoshop Elements 9 – Mac (2.01 GB):   File 1

Adobe Premiere Elements 9 (PRE 9) Direct Download Links

Premiere Elements 9 – Windows (1.19 GB):   File 1   File 2

Premiere Elements 9 – Additional Content – Windows (4.18GB):   File 1   File 2

Premiere Elements 9 – Mac (1.71 GB):   File 1

Premiere Elements 9 – Additional Content – Mac (3.66GB):   File 1

The additional content contains InstantMovie themes, title templates, DVD/Blu-ray menu templates, and music to enhance your movies created with Adobe Premiere Elements 9 software. Themed HD and SD content includes Birthday Party, Road Trip, Outdoor Wedding, Broadway, Kid’s Channel, Family Memories, Extreme Sports, News Reel, Comic Book, and more.

Languages supported: The Elements 9 trials are currently available in English, French/Français, German/Deutsch, Dutch/Nederlands, Italian/Italiano, Spanish/Español, Portuguese/Português, Swedish/Svenska, Japanese/日本語, and Chinese/简体中文, for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS. Adobe says additional language versions for Windows will be available soon. See also the minimum system requirements for PSE 9 and PRE 9.

We suggest using a browser other than Internet Explorer to download 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.

Installation Tips

Download New Adobe CC 2015 Free Trials (Direct Links)

  • You do not need to uninstall previous versions of Elements; some users prefer to keep the older, familiar version(s) around as they come up to speed with the new version’s features.
  • Install with an account that has administrative privileges (not a Limited User Account if you are using Windows Vista).
  • For the easiest installation experience, quit any open programs, including virus protection software, prior to installing Elements 9.
  • If you run into any difficulties, see the Elements 9 Installation Troubleshooting page.

*** 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!

    How do I rename a file so that it will add the extension “.exe” to the end of the filename?

    i had elements version 9 with my packard bell computer.

    As my computer burned, i would like to re-download and re-install my Photoshop Elements 9 on my new computer.


    (my problem is that i have version 9 and not 12, how to get again my software?)

    Thanks in advance

    • Sorry about your system Ivan… You can redownload PSE 9 again right here on this page (above), just make sure you very carefully follow the important download instructions given in the article, near the top of this page.

      If you don’t do that, you won’t be able to access the direct download links.

      If you still have any issues, then try a different web browser, computer, or Internet connection. Avoid Wi-Fi as these are large files and wireless connections can be slow and/or unreliable.

  4. I am trying to update my computer after all the content was dumped. I need to re-install Photoshop Elements 9. When I access the link it says Access Denied. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

  5. Mike Chirnside

    Unfortunately, the links take you to Elements 12 (as of today, 09 Nov)…

  6. Mike Chirnside

    @Mike Chirnside

    Belay my last: seems to be Elements 9 after all! :-)

  7. Shift

    it seems as if I am incapable getting the downloads to properly function, may I have assistance with this issue?

  8. Yvonne

    I have my photoshop elements 9 disk and product key. My new computer doesn’t had a cd drive. how can I reload onto my new pc??

  9. Amelia Lindblad

    Is it still possible to get Elements 8 on a disc ? I need to reinstall it on my MAC and also on my PC due to technical difficulties with both machines. Elements 8 was the last issue that I purchased. I have the instruction booklet but have lost the disc. Any help would be appreciated. thank you.

  11. annie p

    hi, thanks for your reply. it is the files for Mac i have downloaded, plus the adobe installer. when i try to open the files a message says unable to open because it comes from an unidentified source. the installer doesn’t have an option to open these files, but only to open elements 12. i am not seeing any help in the comments you suggest i read. maybe i am missing something!

  12. annie p

    sorry – the error message should have read – ‘can’t open because file from unidentified developer’

  13. annie p

    Hurray! thank you for your help! And now i need to do the same for my Photoshop Elements 9 – can you tell me where to find that please? thanks!

  14. annie p

    Thanks Ronny

  18. Ronny


    and thank you, but this is the wrong version! My Serial number does not match! I need the German version!

  19. Joel

    Have the files been removed for the Photoshop Elements 9? Both are saying access denied. I know they worked last year when I did a reimage and dumb me didn’t make a backup for myself. Now that its that Refresh time of the year I’m back, but no joy.

  20. Mark Buerger

    I downloaded Premiere Elements 9. My SN didn’t work, and when I look at the About file for PSE (in the Organizer), there is no indication that what I have is a Trial version.

    Can you tell me what I am missing? Please.


  21. Mark Buerger

    Well, after hours of downloading, installing & reinstalling and trying the SN I have several times, I found a copy of Elements 9 from one of the 2 dead PCs (persistence pays off I guess) and used that SN. It worked. I guess the SN I was using was from our 2nd copy (we used it on my dear departed wife’s PC.)

    I appreciate your taking time to help out. I also found our copy of Lr3. Now I just have to decide whether or not I’ll shoot enough to make use of the Ps/Lr combination for the monthly special.

    Hi we recently purchased a scanner that came with Adobe photoshop Elements 9 CD, however we are on a laptop and the laptop does not have an insert for CD. I have gone to the website, but having trouble downloading via internet. Was wanting some help if possible Thanks

  23. susan niles

    I just purchased this new laptop and want to transfer Elements 9 from my old PC but have misplaced my CD. How do I go about this?

  24. Vivien

    HI, I just downloaded Photoshop Elements 9, both files as per instructions, on this page above, but I cannot open it, as it says

    “C:usersDesktopPhotoshopElements-9-LS15.7 is not a valid Win32 application.”

    I can not open this download because it is not valid. I run win 7, explorer 10. Please help, what can I do?

    I have tried to install my Cd of the same product with the error “invalid Serial #”.

    This is the 3rd time trying to install my purchased product, was installed twice before, had to reinstall before, as I was having new computer problems.

    I have tried Adobe Chat several times, cannot answer? have asked support and no answer! Now what can I do?? Please help. Thank you so much.
