Get Adobe Creative Cloud Now, Free or Paid

Having originally launched five years ago, by this time you’ve heard about Adobe’s fast-growing Creative Cloud, you’ve dispelled the all-too-common myths out there surrounding it, and perhaps are considering subscribing to CC now that over 8 million of your colleagues already have…

You may also know that Adobe stopped development of the older “CS” releases back in 2012, and that there have been thousands of new product features, enhancements, and performance improvements added to CC since then, as well as integral new services.

But did you know that no matter what you do, you can sign up right now for a zero-cost class of membership that never expires and provides free benefits for life?  Anyone can have this free level currently in 84 countries worldwide, even if you still use the older tools instead, or even if you use no other Adobe products or services at all.

Here is all of what you get completely free, permanently:

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

October 13th, 2016 66 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).

Adobe Acrobat DC Pro/Standard and Reader: Direct Download Links

May 11th, 2016 26 comments

Download the Adobe Acrobat DC Free Trial

Adobe Acrobat DC 2016 is now shipping!  “DC” stands for Document Cloud, which is Adobe’s new set of integrated online services that helps people and businesses better manage critical documents. At the heart of Document Cloud is Acrobat DC – the industry standard for creating, sharing and editing PDFs – which was completely reengineered last year for the initial DC 2015 milestone release.

This new version of Acrobat continues as a desktop product in both Pro or Standard editions, and is available either via subscription or with a perpetual license. Adobe has incorporated many new features and improvements to bring Acrobat up the modern day.  Further, the company has moved to a year-based versioning model for Acrobat… So this revision is officially called the “the 2016 Release of Acrobat DC” – and the technical version number is actually 15 rather than 12.

How to Get a Creative Cloud DVD, Backup, or Offline CC Installers

March 9th, 2016 61 comments

Get the Adobe CC 2015 Offline Installers: Direct Links

The Creative Cloud is cool because it offers access all major tools that Adobe makes at an affordable price… But here are four recurring challenges we still see out there since Adobe discontinued boxes and switched over to Cloud-only application downloads:

  1. Folks with slow or limited Internet connections who need to complete large (multi-gigabyte) downloads to get started with their Creative Cloud memberships.
  2. Customers who’d like to download the CC software using one computer with a high speed network, but install it on another, different machine (or more) without redownloading.
  3. Users who just want to maintain secure backup copies of the offline CC 2015 installers should they ever be without connectivity and need to quickly reinstall their products.
  4. People who have difficulties with the new Creative Cloud Desktop application manager (maybe not showing apps or updates) and want to download their tools without using it.

Hi – is it really true that Adobe Bridge (the full version) is totally free to download and use forever, and I don’t have to pay for it or have a subscription?
