[UPDATE (Nov. 2017) – These still work to download the original CC 2017 installers. If you’re looking for direct links to the newest CC 2018 versions, then see this post.]

The new Adobe CC 2018 release was announced last week, including 15 upgraded desktop applications with new features across the board plus other major advancements… And there’s no wait: the Creative Cloud 2017 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.

October 13th, 2016 75 comments

Download the New 2015.5 Release of Adobe Creative Cloud Now! (Try or Buy)

[UPDATE (Nov. 2017) – These still work to download the original CC 2015.5 installers. If you’re looking for direct links to the newest CC 2018 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).
