[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).
[UPDATE – Also see our new Adobe CC 2017 Holiday Giveaway!]
Last June, Adobe shipped the new CC 2014 product line, a major milestone of creative tools and services that upgrades last year’s CC 2013 version, which itself replaced CS6 from 2012. This latest CC 2014 release contains over 1,000 new features and innovations compared to CS6 (across all apps), and it is available only via Creative Cloud membership.
As both CC 2014 and CC 2013 came out in mid-June, we expect the annual major release cycle to soon begin anew with the imminent launch of CC 2015… And that is exactly what we’re giving away for free below, and this offer is open to everyone worldwide.
Update: Now confirmed! The official shipping date for CC 2015 will be on June 16th.
In all, Creative Cloud 2015 will come with over a dozen new desktop applications (Photoshop CC 2015, Illustrator CC 2015, InDesign CC 2015, Muse CC 2015, and all your favorites), together with other complementary tools and services (such as Behance ProSite, Typekit, Creative Cloud Market) and more… In fact, the all-new Lightroom CC 2015 plus Acrobat DC Pro are already out today and available for download. See the entire contents of what’s in Creative Cloud, where all ongoing upgrades are automatically included at no additional cost.
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).

[UPDATE (Nov. 2016) – Watch 235 hours of new training & tutorials from MAX 2016!]
The Adobe MAX 2014 conference was held earlier this month, and as in previous experiences, it’s always the three most intense days of the year…
It comes complete with major product announcements from the company, inspirational keynotes from creative wizards, scores of learn-till-you-drop training sessions, plentiful opportunities for networking with colleagues, checking out the latest cool technology on the pavilion floor, meeting the Adobe product teams in person, the great buzz over “Sneak Peek” demos of mind-blowing features under development, and of course the all-out MAX Bash party with 6,000 of your peers.
Some good news – because of the major new feature updates announced last week at the big annual MAX conference, Adobe informed us that they reset the 30-day free trial period for Photoshop CC 2014 on both Windows and Mac…
In other words, no matter which version of Photoshop you’ve used or tried in the past, everyone now gets a brand new free trial of the latest-and-greatest release of this core application. This will give all users a chance to check out the new Photoshop for themselves, at no cost.
Of course, if you are already a Creative Cloud member, then these latest updates have already come to you automatically or whenever (as soon as) you want.
Next to Photoshop, Acrobat Pro & Standard is Adobe’s top-selling product line of all time: it’s offered standalone plus included in all the Creative Suites as well as the newer Creative Cloud – so clearly there are a lot of people using it worldwide. The two free books below will help you learn how to use it better and more effectively…
The first book is all about the Acrobat XI release, and the second is for the older Acrobat X from 2010. Both these guides contain dozens of helpful tutorials that will help you discover the advantages of using Acrobat and how to get the most out of it… Following the easy walkthroughs will quickly introduce you to new ways to save time and simplify complex projects.
Each chapter includes step-by-step instructions for performing common tasks efficiently. Keep a copy of either ebook accessible on your computer as an easy–to–use resource for learning new techniques.
[UPDATE (October 2016) – These still work to download the old Elements 13 trials. We also now have the new Elements 15 Direct Download Links!]
In keeping with our custom of publishing the direct download links for major Adobe products such as Creative Cloud, CS6, Lightroom 6/CC, and Acrobat DC, below you’ll find the direct links from Adobe’s servers for the free trials of the new releases of Photoshop Elements 13 and Premiere Elements 13, for both Windows and Mac OS.
These links go to the authentic and secure files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine, safe, legal, 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 Adobe Download Assistant or Akamai Download Manager…
With the links provided below, you can use your own browser’s download capability (without DLM), or another download manager of your choice.
For setting up PSE 13 and/or PRE 13 on Windows, 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 folder. For the Mac, it’s just a single .dmg file for each program.
In order to properly run Photoshop & Premiere Elements 13, your computer must meet Adobe’s minimum system requirements for the products. See below for what’s new & different in this release.
The new Creative Cloud (CC) 2014 is the most sophisticated and powerful toolset Adobe has ever released and recently readers have been asking for solid training materials to learn how to best use these applications…
Last year we spread the word on over 30 hours of free video tutorials for CS6, and last month we published details on a fantastic new ebook for getting started learning the Adobe CC/CS6 Design Suite (202 pages). But if you’re looking for a solid primer or helpful beginner’s lessons for Adobe Dreamweaver, that’s harder to find.
“These tutorials are designed to get you through the basics of making web sites in Dreamweaver with the most flexibility and the least amount of work. Think of them as supplying you with a toolbox full of tools to start making good websites.
