Adobe CC 2018 Direct Download Links: Creative Cloud 2018 Release

Download the New 2018 Release of Adobe Creative Cloud Now! (Try or Buy)

UPDATE – Most of these still work to download the original CC 2018 installers, though Adobe has recently taken down some links… You can also now get the CC 2019 Offline Installers or Adobe’s new CC 2021 Direct Download Links!

Last month, Adobe unveiled the all-new CC 2018 Release, which they say is the biggest product launch since Adobe first introduced Creative Cloud over five years ago. And from what we’ve seen, it looks to be true. There are major updates across the entire suite of tools and services, including entirely new CC desktop tools as well as significant new features and performance improvements to existing applications, and even some surprises.

As always, all upgrades to your CC apps are included as part of your Creative Cloud membership at no additional cost. The CC 2018 software is available immediately for worldwide download via the Creative Cloud 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.

And we have some great news: Adobe has just published a complete set (dozens!) of direct download links for the new CC 2018 release, and you’ll find them in the table below. These links go to the authentic and secure files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine, safe, legal, and will not change. They give you instant access plus the ability to use your own download manager (DLM) if you have difficulty with what Adobe normally employs and want to get the tools or trials without it… They can also come in handy if you want offline CC 2018 installers to use, store, or back up with (i.e., copy to USB flash drive, burn to DVD media, install on other systems or unconnected machines, etc).

Special: Legally download dozens of free Adobe books for a limited time!

Most people download the trials by signing up for the free level of CC membership and using the Creative Cloud Desktop app to select and download any or all of these products, although with the direct links below, no member­ship is required to access the free trials.

Whether you’re considering just a single-app subscrip­tion like Photoshop CC 2018 or getting the complete Creative Cloud, you can always use these free trials to install, run, and activate the new software on your system, without needing to reinstall. All of the CC 2018 tools will install and run together on the same computer(s) alongside any older Adobe versions such as CC 2017, CC 2015, CS6, CS5, CS4, and CS3.  These CC trials are fully functional for 7 free days.

Importantly, all available product languages (except for Hebrew and Arabic) are included in a single multilingual download, and the software will install to the disk location and program language that are set in the Preferences of your CC Desktop app (with reasonable defaults)… So it is possible to install elsewhere on your computer besides C:, as well as with a different language – but you have to indicate that by using the Desktop app. If you need to install additional languages, just run the same installer again after choosing another language in the Preferences.

So without further ado, here are the CC 2018 links!

[UPDATE (Oct. 2020) – These links still work to download most original CC 2018 installers. If you’re using Chrome and they don’t work, then try with another browser. If you’re looking for direct links to the newest 2021 versions, then see this post.]

[ What do these different applications do? Check out the Creative Cloud Contents Guide. ]

These are links to brand new builds of the programs, not in-place updates – so they require nothing else to fully install on either Windows or Mac. All of these downloads will install alongside any previous releases on your machine, so you do not have to uninstall prior versions of Creative Cloud (CC) or Creative Suite (CS) – although you can if you want to. Some users prefer to keep prior revision(s) around as they come up to speed with the new features, and there are customers who have multiple versions of CC (and older) installed on a single computer.

Finally, it’s important to know that the system requirements for Mac have changed… The CC 2018 release now requires macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) through 10.14 (Mojave). On macOS 10.15 (Catalina) and above, only the CC 2019 release (or higher) will install due to Apple dropping support for older apps with 32-bit components. If you’re not yet running any of those Mac operating systems, you can use the older CC 2017 apps instead. For Windows, there are no major changes to the specs or requirements from CC 2017; Windows 7 and higher still work fine.

The only caveat so far against upgrading is for DVA users who rely on Dolby Digital audio encoding or decoding by the CC tools. For further information, see this help page. If you’re on an older operating system or still need that functionality, then by all means you can still keep the CC 2017 versions available on your machine as described above.

See the CC System Requirements for complete platform information. And if you’re unsure whether you need the 64-bit or 32-bit version on Windows, then see this Microsoft page for how to determine which type of system you have.

    None of the mac links are working for me nor are they working for my friends. Is there a problem with the servers or something like that?

    • Are you using Chrome? Please try another web browser like Firefox, Edge, Opera or Safari. No problems at all downloading with any of those.

      The latest version of Chrome has an issue because our page is https, but Adobe’s download server is not – it’s http only, and there’s nothing we can do about that!

      So with a “mixed content download” here, all you have to do is use a different browser. It’s safe and easily taken care of.

    Does this download contain Arabic language versions?
    If not, where can I download them?

  3. C.M.

    I’m a little confused… Can’t install Indesign on my Mac (Catalina) because it would be a 32-bit app … ?

  4. C.M.

    Mon mac refuse (Catalina) refuse d’installer InDesign parce que ce serait une application 32 bits…

    Hi!
    Thx for your help. Just one doubt. I downloaded Animate CC 2018 (Flash Pro) for Mac. But, besides the installer file, I see 3 more folders (packages, products and resources). Should I copy these 3 folders inside the folder of the application?

    Thx

  12. dfgh

    I am on Windows 7 and it says an error “The installation cannot continue as the installer file may be damaged. Download the installer file again.”

    I tried downloading it again but it still doesn’t work. How do I install it?

  13. dfgh

    @ProDesignTools
    All you did in that discussion was link a help article for mac. I am using *windows*

  14. dfgh

    @ProDesignTools
    That discussion is absolutely unhelpful. All there is there is a link to a help article for mac; I am using WINDOWS. I already saw it before I made that comment.

    • We have not heard of that error happening before on Windows. You could try downloading again per the message, perhaps using a different browser or another computer or Internet connection. Make sure you are connected to the Internet when installing the software.

    Hi,
    The animate 2018 download for windows is not a zip file. It’s just a “file”

  22. mariana

    hey, what’s up?
    so do you know if it’s possible to change the app language? i didn’t get to choose that in the installation – it installed in my native language, but i wanted it in english.
    is it possible to change now? i tried uninstalling and re-installing again, but that didn’t work either :/
    thanks for your help.
    also, will i get the app for free forever? or only a 7-day free trial?

    • What we’ve been told is that all available product languages are included in a single multilingual download above, and that the software will install to the disk location and program language that are set in the Preferences of your CC Desktop app (with reasonable defaults)…

      So Adobe says it is possible to install with a different supported language (or elsewhere on your computer besides the C: drive) – but you have to indicate that by using the Desktop app before running the installer. If you need to install additional languages, then just restart your system and then run the same installer again after choosing another language in those Preferences.
