How to Access, Restore or Update to Any Version of Adobe CC Apps

How Does the Adobe CC Desktop App Manager Work?

One of the biggest strengths of the Adobe CC 2017 release is receiving a complete set of creative tools with an ongoing stream of updates included at no extra cost… We no longer have to wait years for our products to innovate and keep pace with evolving technologies; instead we receive the latest and greatest features and improvements as soon as they are ready.

Since the initial launch of CC in 2013, Adobe has regularly issued new upgrades for each individual app about once every 3-4 months, bringing new power and capabilities to all subscribers.

Normally the Creative Cloud works seamlessly with these ongoing product updates… The CC Desktop App runs quietly in the System Tray and gracefully notifies the customer that a new upgrade is avail­able for any of the included applications like Photoshop CC, and (optionally whenever desired) the user clicks one button to auto­matically download and install the update smoothly in the back­ground.

What’s the Difference Between New Adobe CC 2017 vs. CS6, 5, 4, 3?

November 8th, 2016 11 comments

What Are the Differences Between Adobe CC 2017 vs. Older Versions — What's New?

One of the most common upgrade questions we see out there is asking what’s new, what’s different, what’s better, what’s changed between Adobe’s just-launched CC 2017 release and the previous CC 2015.5, CC 2015, CC 2014, CC 2013, or 2012’s Creative Suite 6 – or even the older CS5, CS4, CS3?  Or more fundamentally, what are the key new features and advancements in CC 2017 versus prior versions?

Now that the new CC 2017 mile­stone release is shipping world­wide, everyone is entitled to either a free upgrade or a new free trial for 7 days. Ongoing access to these tools requires a Creative Cloud mem­ber­ship (either for one app or for all of them), with discounts available for education custom­ers. Adobe says that if you look at all of the changes since CS6 to the current CC 2017 release, there have been thousands of significant updates – meaning new and enhanced features, added capabil­ities, and perfor­mance boosts – to the key creative applications.

At Last! The Adobe CC 2015.5 Direct Download Links (2016 Release)

October 13th, 2016 67 comments

Get the New Adobe CC 2015.5 Direct Download Links

[UPDATE (Nov. 2016) – These still work to download the original CC 2015.5 installers. If you’re looking for direct links to the newest CC 2017 versions, then see this post.]

Back in June, Adobe rolled out major updates to its flagship Creative Cloud tools and services. The CC 2015.5 release, as it’s commonly called, includes significant new features in Adobe’s key desktop applications and performance advancements across Creative Cloud. The new versions were available immediately for worldwide download via the CC Desktop App only, because many of the tools began using a proprietary installation technology. The challenge was that many folks want or need to access the new tools directly without using Adobe’s download/app manager, and so we have been working with the company to help make standard, standalone installers publicly available (as has been the practice for all their previous creative software products).

Well, we have some good news: After some months of delay, Adobe has now published an initial set of direct download links for the CC 2015.5 release, for instant access (plus the ability to use your own download manager) if you have any difficulty with what Adobe normally employs and want to get the tools or trials without it… These can also come in handy if you want offline CC 2015.5 installers to use, store, or back up with (i.e., copy to USB flash drive, burn to DVD, etc).
