Creative Cloud 2013 Downloads: Adobe CC 2013 Direct Links / Trials

Download New Adobe CC Now! (Try or Buy)

UPDATE – Some of these still work to download the original CC 2013 installers, but Adobe has recently taken down many links… However, you can also now get the all-new Creative Cloud 2021 Direct Download Links!

The new Adobe “CC” release is now available for instant download worldwide and there are many important differences in this release compared to Creative Suite 6, including hundreds of new features added to the individual desktop applications…

Here we’ve put together a complete set of Adobe CC (2013) direct download links for all the new products (Windows and Mac OS), for instant access and the ability to use your own download manager or download assistant if you have any difficulty with what Adobe normally employs (AAM, ADA, Akamai DLM, CCD, ACC) and need to get the trials without it… These can also come in quite handy if you want offline CC installers to use, store, or back up with (i.e., copy to USB flash drive, burn to DVD or disc media, etc).

Get the New Creative Cloud 2021 Direct Download Links

Alternatively, you can also easily download these free trials by signing up for the free level of CC membership and using the Creative Cloud Desktop app to smoothly select and download any or all of these products, although here on this page no membership is required to access the trials. In other words, with these direct links you can try out any of the just-launched CC apps without the Creative Cloud.

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

Whether you’re considering just a single app subscription like Photoshop CC 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 tools will install and run together on the same computer(s) alongside any older Adobe versions like CS6, CS5, CS4, and CS3.  These CC trials run fully-functional for 30 7 free days (or possibly longer).

Adobe's Best Offer: Get Both Photoshop and Lightroom for Just .99 a Month (Regular Ongoing Price)

One big improvement when downloading the CC release is Adobe no longer has separate files with different language sets – all languages are now included in a single multi­lingual download, including English, Western European (French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, …), Eastern European (Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, …), Middle Eastern (Hebrew, Arabic), and Asian (Japanese, Korean, Chinese). So if you need to install additional languages, just run the same installer again and choose another language.

Below is a table with direct links for all of the CC trials. These links go to the authentic and original CC files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine, safe, legal, and will not change. For Windows, some programs consist of two files, an .exe and a 7-Zip file (.7z). The .exe file will only work when the .7z file is also fully downloaded and resides in the same location. For the Mac, it’s always just a single .dmg file for each program.

**** On Mac OS v. 10.12 “Sierra” (only), you need to follow these additional steps to install.

[ What do these different applications do? Check out the Creative Cloud product page. ]

All of these trials are supported on Mac OS X or Windows (32-bit x86 and 64-bit x64), with the exception of Flash Pro CC, After Effects CC, Premiere Pro CC, Audition CC, Prelude CC, SpeedGrade CC, and Scout CC, which are 64-bit only. Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and InDesign CC include both 32-bit and native 64-bit versions within the same download above. For more details, see the complete set of system requirements for Creative Cloud, and make sure your machine meets the minimum specs for the product(s) you want.

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

You do not need to uninstall any prior versions of Creative Suite or other creative applications; some users prefer to keep the older, familiar version(s) around as they come up to speed with the new product’s features, and some folks have CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, and CC all on one computer.

We suggest using a browser other than Internet Explorer to download the files above. They can be quite large and IE has been known to drop the extension (like “.exe”) from the Windows filename. If this happens and you can’t open a file, then just rename it to add back the extension. But generally, using Firefox or Chrome will work better – and if you have any issues getting the downloads to work with one browser, then try another.

If you have a slow or limited Internet connection and the sizes of these files are just too much to successfully download online, then you can request a Creative Cloud disc/DVD from Adobe instead.

*** Note: If you have any problems getting the files to download or install, be sure to read the earlier comments on this page – as most questions have already been asked and answered below!

Adobe CC Extra Content

Adobe did not update the (optional) Extra Content – also called “Functional Content” – for the CC release, and says you can continue to download and use the CS6 Extra Content if you like – read more about this here.

The free additional content consists of media assets, templates, tutorials, documentation, fonts, footage, and sample files – and is not required to run the main products, but will improve your experience if you have the time to download and add it to your installation. It is most used in the Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Encore applications – and is displayed in the Library panel, title template, and template projects.

Adobe CC 2013 Updates

If you also want the direct download links for the individual CC product updates/patches (i.e., all the included upgrades for each tool since the initial base CC release above), we have complete sets available:

410 thoughts on “Creative Cloud 2013 Downloads: Adobe CC 2013 Direct Links / Trials”

  1. Hi ProDesignTools and all! Thank you for this wonderful site!

    Have 3 questions and would be grateful for any help

    1. Acrobat trial (two-part) above: Upon extracting I get a folder containing no Setup.exe (unlike with all other apps). I have to go looking down subfolders to find an installer “Acro.exe” or something. I run this and it installs (though unsure if properly). This can’t be right. Where is the Setup? note: extracting on 7 or XP yields same results.

    2. Why are there different files here for Acrobat in Creative Cloud compared to the same Acrobat (XI) that’s not found under CC? It is one file. But when under CC, it’s two files. Lightroom 5 is also larger under CC than where found on its own (the standalone LR5). What’s the difference?

    3. Here is one I have been wanting to inquire about forever, but never got around… Is it possible that someone could have the download link for the Photoshop Elements 6 free trial ??

    Thanks very much for any help!

    • Hey Tim, those are great questions, and we’d be happy to answer them for you. Yes, Acrobat does work a little differently from the rest of the CC… The reason is because it comes from a different development arm of the company, which has its own packaging and release schedule.

      1. Acrobat XI Pro’s installation file that you need to start on Windows is called “AcroPro.msi” – and you’ll find it within the new folder “Adobe CS7\payloads\AcrobatProfessional11.0-mul\” that’s created on your Desktop after you download & run the .exe file here.

      2. Indeed, the versions of Acrobat and Lightroom for Creative Cloud are slightly different because they have different handling of the licensing than the individual, standalone versions. However, the features and functionality are absolutely identical in both releases – you get the same actual product.

      3. No sorry, we have a lot of direct links for Adobe software, but Elements 6 is too old for us to have record of here. You might possibly find something on the Adobe FTP server for old versions, but it’s really hit-or-miss and for expert users only.

      Hope that helps! If you have any further questions, feel free to post back.

  2. Perfect, thanks very much for your help!

    Could you guess or would you know the name of the Photoshop Elements 6 trial download file? I assume it is just a single file (as with pse7)

    Also I will be installing a few CC apps on a machine that has not seen the internet like a puddle in a cave has not seen the sunlight. I know that I can call Adobe to activate these apps offline, without the internet. My question is this: With this kind of activation (offline activation), do I have to keep activating every 30 or 99 days? (just as when activating the normal way, with the net) ?

    Thanks again PRO Design!

  3. thanks prodesign

    this site is a fantastic resource for adobe products. it’s like an adobe candy shop.

    links to apps. links to answers. links everywhere raining, makes everything connected and complete (and quick). there is this post board too (direct responses in direct time). everything is direct. not just the trials (which is why i came here). blog posts are colorful displays of the very inquires we tend to have.

    this site is a job done adobe well.

  4. hi ProDesignTools,

    thanks for the direct download. i have finished the download for premiere above but i have not yet installed it on my computer because i am not sure that file is well. it was downloaded with frequent resume/pause.

    can you show me the checksum for “premiere for windows file” such as md5 or sha-1 etc.?

    Thanks very much for any help.

    i am sorry for my bad English.

    • OK, here’s the MD5 checksum for that file above…  Just compare against this and make sure the file you downloaded matches the appropriate value:

      PremierePro_7_LS20.7z (Premiere Pro Trial for Windows, English):
      Size: 1,081,427,956 bytes
      MD5: 6C4C3238A635C6092A3A7D530619C8D9

      If the numbers don’t match, then your system is not downloading the files intact.

    • Hello Taylor, make sure you are carefully following the download instructions given in the article above, near the top of this page… Those are essential for the CC direct links to work, otherwise you will get that exact message.

      Then if you’re still having any issues, try a different web browser, computer, or (wired) Internet connection… Avoid wireless because most of these are large files, and Wi-Fi can be slower and unreliable.

      Finally, check out our complete list of suggestions if you are really stuck.

  5. Hi Prodesigntools,

    I tried to download premier pro CC today. But the exe and 7zip files couldn’t be downloaded. Can you please check.


  6. Hi there,

    Great site!!! Do you perhaps also have the links to the latest versions of these files? For exemple here you have Photoshop 14.0, but 14.1.2 is already out.

    Thank you!

  7. I am looking to reinstall photoshop cs5 on a school computer lab machine that had gotten a virus and got re-ghosted without cs5. I had the installer backed up on a server that crashed and died on October 5. I cannot find the installer for cs5 anywhere on this site. We have a site license so all I need is the installer!

  8. I looked all over that page before posting, but only see downloads for all new products and trials, but no PS CS5. Am I missing something? If the download is there, it is very well hidden :-( Still in need of help, please…

  9. @ProDesignTools

    I have CC membership but use this site to obtain and install the Adobe applications because I have never been able to install the Adobe CC Desktop app successfully.

    During the Acrobat installation process I am asked to install a trial version or provide a serial number. If I choose trial version, will I be able to continue to use Acrobat under my CC license?

    • Hey Tim, if you downloaded and installed the Acrobat Pro application above (from this page), then yes it will be included automatically in your CC member­ship when you sign in…

      The version linked above is the official Creative Cloud release, which is a different download and version from the standalone Acrobat XI Pro.  The functionality and features are identical though in both releases.

  10. I changed browsers to make sure everything was set fresh – enabled pop-ups, accepting cookies – I clicked on the link that said to “click <> to visit this page.” That led me to install the Adobe Download Assistant, I signed in, then after installing and opening the app, it gave me a very small selection of apps to choose from, and none of them was PS CS5. I tried the direct links again and started going around in circles… I guess at this point I should just call, unless there’s anything else I can try – thank you very much for your help.

    • You simply have follow the instructions, can’t say that any more plainly. It sounds like you missed Step 3, which is to cancel any downloads that may have started earlier, like the Adobe Download Assistant… You don’t want or need that! Try again and read attentively.

  11. Pls check above link, it’s showing like this:

    Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/AdobeProducts/PHSP/14/win32/Photoshop_14_LS20.exe” on this server.
    Reference #18.5f1c95e.1384422633.16eccebf

  12. I dont get this: In the beginning when I just start any download, the rate is like 1.5mb/s, which is my usual download rate, but after about one minute the rate drops under 200kb/s.
    Same happens with CS6 files.
    any ideas?

    • No, sorry – just tested it on our end and the speed was a steady ~1.0 MB/second here via the Google Chrome browser and a wired connection, and the 1 GB file downloaded in about 18 minutes. Right now at 1pm is peak traffic so speeds should be more consistently higher later during off-peak times.

  13. Thanks for your quick reply!

    However, I still could not find a solution for that. But I’m sure it’s not a connection problem on my part. I could even download a game on steam with over 1 Mb/sec at the same time.

    The curious thing is, when I pause the adobe download and restart again, the rate climbs up to about 500 kb/sec and than nearly instantly drops again. Using firefox right now, going to test it with google chrome later.

  14. I did all the instructions but, it still says The file archive part of adobe photoshop cc is missing. Please download all parts.

    • Hi Kumiko, you need two files for downloading and installing Photoshop on Windows – they are both in the table above, and make sure to put them in the same folder on your computer.

      Both must download completely and in their entirety, so make sure you have a strong and fast Internet connection – wired is much better and more reliable than wireless. It’s possible you got an incomplete or corrupt download.

      It may also have been that your browser dropped the filename extension(s) for one of the files you downloaded – if you have two files, then there will be one .EXE and also one .7Z file. So if an extension is missing, then just rename the file to add it back.

      If there’s just a single file for the product, then it should be an .EXE file on Windows, or a .DMG file on Mac OS.

      Finally, if you continue to have difficulties, try a different browser or computer.

  15. hi…
    i have downloaded Photoshop CC, before installing it i want to check that this file is good with checksum…
    so can you give me the checksum for this software…?
    Thanks for the direct link adobe trial…

  16. Hi! I’m running a Windows system now, but am considering moving to a Mac in a few months. If I pay for Photoshop CC will I be able to change versions with a new computer?
