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.

What Is Adobe Bridge?

In response to our How to Join Adobe’s Creative Cloud for Free post last week, we received this question from a reader:

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?

The answer is yes, it’s absolutely true – although not that many people know about it because Adobe hasn’t really publicized it widely…

The New Adobe CC 2015 Release Is Here – What You Need to Know

June 16th, 2015 26 comments

Download the New 2015 Release of Creative Cloud Now! (Try or Buy) See What's New

[UPDATE (Nov. 2016) – The all-new Adobe CC 2017 release has launched and is now available! See what’s new in features and all the differences compared to CS6, CS5, CS4 & CS3.]

Adobe has just announced the immediate availability of the all-new CC 2015 release, with hundreds of new features and enhancements across their creative product line focusing on workflow, performance, connectivity, and some of that Adobe magic…  Creative Cloud 2015 is the next major release following the CC 2014 and CC 2013 versions, which in turn replaced CS6 from 2012. So thinking in the old terms, this would roughly be equivalent to CS9 (and more).

The 15 desktop tools updated today are Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, Dreamweaver, Flash Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects (including the highly-anticipated Character Animator), Audition, Prelude, Speedgrade, Media Encoder, Muse, and Edge Animate. All current Creative Cloud members will receive an automatic upgrade to the 2015 Release, and all of the new free trial downloads are also now live online. As before, the new tools and services are available via afford­able annual or monthly memberships. Adobe continues to grow Creative Cloud in a big way, now with over 9 million paid customers already having signed up.

Download the New 2015 Release of Adobe Creative Cloud Now! (Try or Buy)

[UPDATE (Nov. 2016) – These still work to download the original CC 2015 installers. If you’re looking for direct links to the newest CC 2017 versions, then see this post.]

The new Adobe CC 2015 release was announced earlier today, including 15 upgraded desktop applications with new features across the board plus some big performance boosts… And there’s no wait: the CC 2015 software is available immediately for worldwide download via the CC Desktop App… This means everyone gets either a free upgrade or a free trial – but some folks want or need to access the new tools directly without using Adobe’s download/app manager.

So below we’ve curated a complete set of Adobe CC 2015 direct download links for all the new products on Windows and Mac OS, 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 standalone CC 2015 installers to use, store, or back up with (i.e., copy to USB flash/thumb drive, burn to DVD, etc).

New Adobe Lightroom 6 (CC) Direct Download Links – Free Trials

April 21st, 2015 110 comments

Download New Adobe Lightroom 6/CC Free Trial

Yes – the new release of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 is just out and now shipping! There was no beta version/period this time, so we go straight to the final product. And as in the past, this release will work side-by-side with any previous revisions of Lightroom you may have. If you’ve got an earlier version installed on your system(s), Lightroom 6 will ask if you’d like to upgrade your catalog and copy everything over.

This new version continues as a downloadable desktop product and is available either with a standalone perpetual license (called Lightroom 6) or via subscription (called Lightroom CC). It begins as the same program and free trial download below, but the name is changed to reflect the differences in licensing and bundling, as well as the addition of integrated mobile apps & services plus future feature updates (such as the new Dehaze filter or Boundary Warp function).
