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.

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:

  1. @ProDesignTools

    Oh, I didn’t notice the download instructions at the top of this page. This is a great site! However, I already downloaded Photoshop CS6 instead for I managed to find direct link of it. Thank you for the response and I’ll use this for the next Adobe CC software that I will install.

  2. Can you also post the Photoshop CC trial links along with their newest updates… The latest Photoshop CC version is 14.1.2. Can I download the newest trial of Photoshop CC 14.1.2?

  3. Hi, Thanks for these direct links… very handy to have.

    I have one problem however, after installing these it seems the Creative Cloud Application Manager does not recognise that I have them installed and so doesn’t offer me the updates.

    Any ideas how to fix that?

    I’ve tried reinstalling the AAM.

    Thanks, Thomas

  4. Hey, thanks I think I already have that… is that the app that sits in the top OSX menu bar that shows the list of creative cloud apps?

    If that’s what you mean then it only shows updates for apps I’ve downloaded through that and seems to not realise I have the ones installed through the direct links. Thanks

  5. @ProDesignTools

    Not sure that really works. When I tested this before, the only way I could do updates was if I downloaded the apps from CCD.

    Has something changed with the latest CCD update?

    Anyway, I want to test 10.9.1 and I don’t want to download the software again with CCD because I have to be booted to that partition to do that, and I really don’t have the time to do that so I was going to install the trials which I have already downloaded. I’ll let you know if I can figure a way to update them then.

    By the way are there links to the CC app updates anywhere?

    • Hi Doyle, not sure why the updates wouldn’t work for you… It’s what Adobe says should happen, and it works for us.

      In fact, we just tried a test, by installing Flash Pro CC, Dreamweaver CC, and Fireworks CS6 all on a clean Windows 8 system via the direct links above…

      Then, after finishing the installs and restarting the computer, pending updates for all three tools appeared automatically and were available for further download from the Creative Cloud Desktop dashboard the next time we logged into it and checked.

      Are you sure you’re running the latest version of the CC Desktop app? If you go to Preferences > General and look in the Account tab, it reads “Creative Cloud” (released on 2/12/2014).

      That said, one user commented the other day about “strange things like missing updates and re-appearing new installations” – in other words, the Creative Cloud Desktop App manager has been a bit buggy since it was first released, which is one reason why offer all the CC downloads here without it.

      But if it’s still not detecting installed apps (or recognizing uninstalled apps), then try uninstalling and reinstalling it for a fix.

    • PS – On your other question:

      No, unfortunately Adobe does not make the CC product updates easily available for individual direct download… They used to do this, up until CS6 – but have stopped with CC.

      In special cases we can find out where separate updates/patches live (like for Photoshop CC 14.1.2), but it’s a lot of detective work as there is no master list.

  6. Found a very fast and easy way to do this…

    Using chrome, open developer tools and copy the HTML code of the table. Open an Adobe page and using the developer tools insert the table anywhere on the page. Links clicked will now appear to come from Adobe’s site (the referrer) and it happily lets you download all links :) Just been doing it now.

  7. For everyone that are receiving “Access is denied” at download:
    There is something strange when you click on “Download now” at the Acrobat XI (link to create the trial cookie). The button loads but it is a Flash animation. I did not like it, it did not happen on the last time I downloaded Adobe CC trials and IT DOES NOT SET THE TRIAL COOKIE anymore.

    Instead, access and click on “Download now” at the Elements page.

    Now, come back to the table at this page and start the download. It will fail again. It is because we need to change the User Agent of the browser.
    In the “Access is denied” page, press .

    At the sidebar, scroll the mouse to the last item (a computer and a smart phone). In “User agent”, select “Custom” and write “Adobe Application Manager 2.0”. The page will automatically reload and download gonna start.

    In older IE versions, after pressing , select the menu “Tool > Change the user agent string” and select “Custom”. Type “Adobe Application Manager”.

    • Well, everything continues to work fine on our end Eduardo, we haven’t noticed any changes or problems – but thanks for checking in with your suggestions.

      Normally when someone gets “access denied,” it’s simply because the download instructions aren’t followed carefully.

      Here also is a list of download tips to step through if someone gets stuck.

      Generally speaking, we don’t recommend using IE because it all too often drops the file extension(s) when downloading these files, so your computer then doesn’t know how to open them and you have to manually rename them to add the extension(s) back.

  8. hello bro, do you have setup master link for Photoshop CC 14.1.2?

    I mean not updates setup, because I see uploaders sharing under torrent P2P.

  9. Hey, I downloaded as per the instructions using Chrome, as IE didn’t add the extension (.exe) like you said…… But now I have a whole heap of .exe and .txt – shouldn’t the .txt be something else? Thanks

    • Well, there are no .txt files here – only .exe and .7z files. So check to see what you have compared to the links you downloaded from (hover your mouse over the original links to see what they should be at the end).

  10. Where can I find the updates for CC on the prodesigntools website? My CC desktop app has never worked. Any guidance much appreciated!

    • Well, for CC Adobe doesn’t make a separate listing of application updates available anymore like they used to – see previous comment above for more details.

      We are lobbying them that they should still do this, for cases like yours particularly.

      Our best advice is to make sure your CC Desktop App is fully up to date – a clean way to do this is uninstall the “Adobe Creative Cloud” program using your operating system, reboot your computer, and then download and run it again using the “CC Desktop App” link in the table above.

      [UPDATE (February 2014):  We did it ourselves – you’ll find complete sets of all of CC update downloads collected here for Windows and here for Mac OS.]

  11. Hello,

    I finally figured out how to install Edge Animate CC on Windows, since there is no .exe file given in Adobe’s download.

    So just follow:

    1. Copy these files & folders from the Photoshop install package and paste them into the Edge Animate folder:


    2. Then run Set-up.exe for Edge Animate to install it.

    It works 100%! However, the Edge Animate CC icon may be invisible so you need to find the icon using search in the Start menu and pin the icon either on start menu or task bar.


    • Brilliant! We tested it and that really works!

      Fantastic Francis, thank you so much for finding and posting the solution.

      So now, it’s possible to download Edge Animate CC using the direct link above, and then install it standalone without needing the Creative Cloud Desktop app.

      You have to rely on copying those materials from the Photoshop package and moving them over to the appropriate place in the Edge Animate structure, but the technique works flawlessly. In fact, after installation on Windows 8, the Animate CC icon was already available everywhere, just like any other app.

      Thanks again!

  12. Hi

    are the photoshop cc / illustrator cc links above just for win32?

    just wondering because in the download dialogue box (i am downloading them right now), i see this:

    …/AdobeProducts/PHSP/14/ win32 /Photoshop_14_LS20.7z

    since i run a 64bit system, i’d like to know if the zip file actually contains also the 64bit version.


    • Good question Pietro. Yes, these are universal installers that run on 32-bit systems but contain the installers for both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the applications…

      So not to worry, you’ll get the right one for your computer.

  13. I am signed into my adobe account but I still keep getting an access denied message when I click the download links. Any suggestions? I have tried it in both Chrome and IE browsers.

    • Hey Dawn, have you made sure to carefully follow the download instructions? They are essential even if you are logged into your Adobe account or are trying different browsers.

  14. Hey prodesign,

    I did follow all instructions, after my download finishes (of Premiere Pro), it shows as PremierePro_7_LS20.7z

    And saves as a crdownload file. I read a source on the internet which says,

    “‘.CRDOWNLOAD.file’ is added to files that are in the process of being downloaded. Once the download is complete, the ‘.CRDOWNLOAD.file’ part of the filename is removed.

    It sounds like your download is corrupt or was interrupted, leaving you with an incomplete file.”

    Please help me solve this because I can’t seem to download Premiere Pro from ANYWHERE! =(

    • Well, that source is correct Hinna – your file definitely did not actually complete the download. These are large files so may take some time to finish.

      And yes, stick with only safe/legit source of authentic CC direct download links like the ones here.

  15. @ProDesignTools

    An update on installing CC apps with being logged in. The only thing I needed to do was make sure I had the latest version of CC Desktop installed. This was on a clean install of Mac OS X 10.9.1. Installed ID, PS, and IL from saved installers. And ran all saved updaters and updated to the latest version. Didn’t need to go online once to download anything.

  16. Hi there.

    Awesome with direct links but what about when new versions are released ? Like the new Photoshop CC v14.2. I only see the first version v14 here.

    Thanks again.

    • Good question Eric. OK, so here’s the story. In most cases, Adobe does not change the direct download links for a given release; those remain stable even after the apps are updated… Instead, you download the base version (Photoshop CC 14.0 in this case), and then update the program using Help > Updates… These updates (like Photoshop CC 14.2 out today) are in the form of patches that download & install over the main/base product on your computer.

      However, the applications do not handle the updates themselves – they hand off the work to a download manager like the Creative Cloud Desktop App (which is available separately in the DDL table above). If you don’t have this kind of helper utility also installed on your machine, then there will be no automated mechanism available to down­load, manage, and install the software updates – you’ll have to apply the patch by hand.

      In that case, we do have the direct links for the cumulative Photoshop CC 14.2.1 patches available [Windows, 334 MB | Mac OS, 194 MB] – and if you’re technically inclined you can manually download and update the 14.0 version on your own. But please don’t do it unless you’re comfortable with that sort of thing without needing support!

      But generally, Adobe recommends having the CC Desktop App also on your system to manage all your CC tools, updates, uploads & downloads, file syncing, fonts, Behance, and more.

      [UPDATE (February 2014):  We just created two new pages with all of the direct download links for all of the CC update patches released to date – and you will find them here for Windows and here for Mac OS.]

  17. I can get this direct download for Illustrator CC to start (for a Mac using Safari) but not to actually complete the download. Also tried via CC manager – consistently stalls at 42% via that route. Have downloaded other parts of CC successfully via the manager however, e.g. Photoshop, InDesign …



    • Hmm, well not much except try a different browser, computer, or Internet connection – and avoid Wi-Fi if possible.

      The CC direct links all continue to download fine on our end when following the directions in the article.

  18. ProDesignTools:
    PS – On your other question:No, unfortunately Adobe does not make the CC product updates easily available for individual direct download… They used to do this, up until CS6 – but have stopped with CC. In special cases we can find out where separate updates/patches live (like for Photoshop CC 14.1.2), but it’s a lot of detective work as there is no master list.

    Plz ! Can you Upload the Patch Update to ADOBE PHOTOSHOP CC v14.2 (Update 16/01/2014) ! :”>

  19. The direct download links above are not working for me today. I downloaded Photoshop before, but now even that link is giving me “Access denied.”

    I followed the instructions, and I’m logged in to my Adobe account, just as before when the download links worked, but today they don’t work.

    • Hi Simon, thank you for the heads-up. Earlier today Adobe changed one of the inbound shortcuts on their site (for the Acrobat trial page) which we used to set their session cookie to enable the CC direct links… A very rare occurrence that they changed it, but without that cookie being set these links could not function.

      Fortunately we were just able to find another shortcut we could use for these purposes – so all the direct download links should now work again. First, be sure to do a hard refresh in your web browser because some of the content on this page has changed. Then just step through the download instructions above once again – and please let us know if you have any further difficulties, but you should be good.

    • No worries Simon, glad to help and thank you once again for bringing it to our attention. That’s the first time in five years of running this site that anything like that has ever happened with our direct links!

  20. Hello
    I’m unable to use the patch zip you provide for PS.
    When I run the setup I got a message saying that it does not apply to my case….
    And I see no update available through the Adobe CC desktop update….
    It is a real mess this new update system !

    • Well, to install Edge Animate standalone on Mac required a similar sleight-of-hand to copy various directories between .DMG files (add in the “install” and “packages” folders from the Photoshop .dmg, then click install); it was a bit messy…

      Fortunately, earlier today Adobe released Edge Animate 3.0 which now avoids all these problems because the complete package finally includes its own separate installer!

      So no more messing around is necessary, either on Windows or Mac OS. The updated direct download link for EA 3.0 is already reflected in the DDL table above. Just use that one, forget about 2.0, and you’ll be good to go.

      PS – And make sure to always carefully follow the download instructions in order for all the links to work.
