[UPDATE (Oct. 2022) – The all-new Creative Cloud 2023 release has launched and is now available! See what’s new in features and all the differences compared to older versions.]

Adobe just announced the immediate availability of the all-new CC 2017 release, with hundreds of new features and enhance­ments across their creative product line focusing on innovative new tools, improved performance, smoother workflow & connectivity, and some of that Adobe magic…  Creative Cloud 2017 is the next major release following the CC 2015, CC 2014, and CC 2013 versions, which in turn replaced CS6 from 2012.

The 15 upgraded desktop applications are Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, Animate (formerly Flash Pro), Muse, Dreamweaver, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Character Animator, Audition, Prelude, Media Encoder, Bridge, and Experience Design (XD). All current Creative Cloud members receive an automatic upgrade to the 2017 Release, and all of the new free trial downloads are also now live online. As before, the new tools and services are available via budget-friendly annual or monthly memberships. Creative Cloud membership continues to expand at an acceler­ating pace around the world, with now over 30 million paid customers having signed up.

Also rolling out are cool technologies like Project Felix, a powerful new 3D compositing tool created for designers, as well as impressive further growth in Adobe Stock, now offering 460 million assets and some amazing visual search capabilities, plus the introduction of a new collection of intelligent services built into the Adobe Cloud Platform called Adobe Sensei.

A variety of free mobile apps have also been released or updated for both iOS and Android, which work together with the cloud and the desktop applications. And other top tools and services like Behance, your own Adobe Portfolio website, Typekit fonts, Creative Cloud Market assets, Lightroom CC, and Acrobat DC Pro continue to be included in Creative Cloud 2017 as well.

What You Should Know About the 2017 Release

Download New Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 Now (Try or Buy)

The CC 2017 applications are complete new builds of the tools and not just “in place” feature updates to the existing versions. When upgrading your system, the CC Desktop App will, by default, uninstall prior CC (not CS) versions on your machine, so that you just have the latest release… It will automat­ically migrate your presets, preferences and any compatible add-ons; however it will not migrate third-party plug-ins.

If you do not want it to uninstall your prior versions – for third-party compatibility reasons or just to wait until you’re comfortable with the new CC 2017 version – then click on “Advanced Options” and uncheck “Remove old versions.” In all cases, per usual, you’ll have to reinstall any third-party plug-ins and extension panels after you upgrade. For more information and details, please see this guide. So, it’s up to you: if you choose, CC 2017 will install and run alongside CC 2015, CS6, CS5, or any older CS versions with no problem (and some people do this), or you can have the the older release(s) removed. Of course, if you use the CC 2017 direct download links instead of the Desktop App, then you have full control of everything yourself.

In any event, as a Creative Cloud member you always have access to older CC 2015, CC 2014, CC 2013, and CS6 versions available in an online archive for all subscribers to download and use if/when needed. So if you ever uninstall an earlier version that you want back later, it’s there for you. If you’re trying out CC 2017 and decide to join when the free trial period is up, you can easily convert your trial to ongoing use without reinstall­ing the software.

Also important to know is that the system requirements for Mac have changed… The CC 2017 release now requires Mac OS X 10.10 (“Yosemite”) or higher. If you’re not running that yet, then you can get a free upgrade from Apple to the latest version of macOS 10.12 Sierra. Or instead you can continue to use the older CC 2015.5 applications. For Windows, there are no major changes to the specs or requirements from CC 2015; Windows 7 and higher still work fine. For more details, see the complete CC 2017 System Requirements.

Pricing and Availability

Creative Cloud Is Growing Fast – How Many Millions of Paid Subscribers?

The complete CC 2017 release is now shipping and available for instant download. If you’re not ready for the complete Creative Cloud now ($49.99/month) and prefer just a single applica­tion like Photoshop CC 2017, then you can get any standalone CC tool for $9.99 or $19.99 a month with what’s known as a Single-App Membership, or (for both Photoshop + Lightroom) the CC Photography Plan.

Education customers still receive a discount of 60-70% off the regular CC prices, for students, teachers, and staff at all levels of school: primary, middle, secondary, college and university… See our guide on how to qualify.

If you need to run CC on multiple computers for a group of users, then Adobe offers Creative Cloud for Teams for the most flexibility and ease of management, plus other significant advantages over the Individual CC offering such as the groundbreaking Team Projects.

As a Creative Cloud member, all of these just-launched apps and services are available to you immed­iately. Just download and install the apps from your Creative Cloud account (com­pletely on your schedule), or start using the new or updated services. Everyone can also run every­thing for free for 7 days, as all trial periods have been reset from CC 2015.

  1. ls it possible to post the latest CC 2017 updates
    for example: After Effects CC 2017 (14.0.1) or Premiere Pro CC 2017 (11.0.1) or Audition CC 2017 (10.0.1)

    • Hey Harald, yes – we are aware of the CC 2017.0.1 updates out for some of the video & audio products… We have been in close contact with Adobe this week and they are working on it.

      Things are a happening a bit slower that anticipated, and for that we apologize. In a big company, sometimes it can take a bit longer to iron everything out. But rest assured, we are on the case and will update this space as soon as we have more news and links…

      They will be posted here:

  2. All updates are included in the Creative Cloud upgrade. Mind-blowing magic from Adobe. Just need how much you are going to pay for the CC. Thanks for gathering all updates in one place.

  3. I have messed up in Lr 6 and now find my catalogs all over the place! Can I and if so how do I copy them back into Lr 6 and merge into one catalogue so that I can upgrade to cc 2017. please help me with this one.

  4. Hi
    I am really interested in Adobe CC as I have read countless articles and watched various videos on the amazing new features.
    However so far it has not been available in Nigeria.
    Is there any plans to change this in this new release?
    Thank you

    • Well, it appears that Adobe is not yet offering Creative Cloud for Individuals in the country where you live… The list of where CC can be purchased is now over 80 countries and always growing larger.

      However, if you happen to have a billing address and form of payment (including PayPal) that is based in any one of those other countries where Adobe offers their products online, then you should still be able to purchase CC direct – even if your home address is elsewhere…

      [Note that your Adobe ID needs to be associated with the same country as your credit card or billing address, so if it isn’t then you may have to create a new Adobe ID.]

      But even if that doesn’t work, then you should still be able to buy Creative Cloud for Teams from a reseller in your country. Yes, CC for Teams is offered there, and shown on the countries list linked above – so you should be able to purchase it, even if only for 1 single license.

      Finally, while not everyone has full access yet, Adobe tells us they continue to work to expand the availability on an ongoing basis – so look for still more countries to be added going forward (and don’t forget that Creative Suite was never sold everywhere either).

      But whatever you do, avoid any illegitimate version at all costs!

  5. I have Adobe cc 2015 for photographers on both my laptop and desktop.
    Both were working like a dream.
    Now it has been upgraded to 2017 everything has slowed down dramatically.
    I find when downloading my photos in RAW the software takes ages to keep up with what used to be almost instant. I can’t use this software anymore as it takes just too long to edit 500 plus photos. If it is not corrected soon I will have to cancel my contract and move to another software package.
    What is going on? Please advise.

    • We haven’t had any issues but heard there were some folks with certain configurations who experienced slowness in the initial release of CC 2017.0. However there have since been updates to the major tools like Photoshop that you should make sure you have installed. Select “Check for App Updates” from the Settings (gear icon) menu in your CC Desktop app.

  6. BOOOOO. My lightroom would not download after seven attempts (I have had the CC photo deal for years) PS CC is fine, but Lightroom killed my old version and WILL NOT OPEN so I have no Lightroom at all.

  7. Good Day
    I am absolutely a rookie when it comes to post editing. I would like to rent Adobe Light room CC 7 version for $ 9.99 / month. It is advertised as PS + Light room. Can you get the LR 7 only ? My preference is Light room, or is it a package deal ?

  8. Hi,
    There is an Adobe CC2017 sold on ebay with a 2-year licence for 50 euros.
    Is it legal?

    « link removed »

    Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 – ESD – Windows 32/64 bit – multi-language – 1 PC

    • No question, that listing is absolutely not legitimate.

      Does it pass the sniff test? No.
      Does it sound too good to be true? Yes.

      You would almost certainly get a bogus item and lose your money to boot. You could hardly find a better example of why never to try to buy Adobe software off of eBay.

      Adobe very rarely discounts their software, so anything you find there – especially at that price – is likely to be a scam.

  9. Thank you.
    I did make some inquiries and he claims to be a legal reseller.
    My guess is, that he has bought a group license and is then selling off the parts.
    He reckons that after 2 years, he can just renew the license for another 2 years, for a fee of course.

    • Exactly as we thought and wrote above. That is completely bogus, as well as 100% illegal… And you would get stuck holding the bag.

      PLEASE read the article linked in our previous reply above, before you get scammed and lose your hard-earned money.

  10. @Roger Lagessew
    Really good to know about how slow 2017 is. I have 2015, downloaded 2017, but it won’t install. I like 2015 so unless Adobe comes up with some awesome new capability like they did with content aware or blur reduction, I’ll just stick to 2015 for now.

  11. i am switching from pagemaker to cc 17. but my file are not converted. i have 50 licences of cc 17. but i can not work on it due to conversion issues from .pmd to .indd. suggest best possible

    • No, Adobe InDesign CC will not convert old Pagemaker files. However, Adobe CS6 can and will.

      As a Creative Cloud subscriber, you have full included access to previous Adobe versions, going back to CS6. So you can download, install and use CS6 to convert your PM files, and then open them in CC.

      Please see this comment for more details.

  12. I have acrobat pro 10 and read that it is no longer supported. Does that put me at a security or hacking risk? what does no longer supported mean exactly. I want to use acrobat pro on 2 different computers, but only 1 at a time. can I download same copy to both as long as I use only 1 at a time?

    do you sell acrobat? should I get pro 11 or pro 2017? Not clear on what the difference is

  13. I came here to see a feature comparison of all photoshop versions. But you show no such things. It’s then safe to assume all those versions are identical, and that we can just go with the free CS3. Surely if anyone had worked on anything, they would have said it somewhere, right?
