Adobe CC 2015 Direct Download Links: Creative Cloud 2015 Release

June 16th, 2015 970 comments

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 113 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).
