Direct Download Links for All Creative Cloud 2013 Updates: Mac OS

Download New Adobe CC Now! (Try or Buy)

[UPDATE (July 2015) – These still work to download updates for the older CC 2013 release… However we also now have direct links for the new CC 2015 product updates.]

One of the great benefits of the Adobe CC release is receiving an ongoing stream of product updates at no extra cost… No longer do we have to wait 1-2 years for our tools to innovate and keep pace with evolving technologies; instead we get the latest & greatest features and improvements as soon as they are ready.

Since the initial launch of CC in June, Adobe has issued new upgrades for each individual app about once every 3-4 months, bringing new power and capabilities to all subscribers.

Normally these upgrades happen smoothly and automatically for customers via the Creative Cloud Desktop app or Adobe Application Manager. But as with any software, there occa­sionally can be exceptions. Sometimes the new updates don’t show up in the CC desktop or manager apps, hindering the upgrade. Other times, you may have the need to rebuild, restore, or rollback to a specific earlier CC version for various reasons.

With older releases like CS6, Adobe used to post the individual update patches online for direct download and use when needed, but they stopped doing that for most CC apps. But we keep getting reader requests for these, so now – for all of CC – we’re providing them here.

Starting today, you can use the table below for a complete list of all CC updates for all major products for Mac… [See here for Windows] These download links go to the authentic and original CC update installers residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine, safe, legal, and will not change. There are no special instructions to down­load: just click and go.

These are cumulative patches and applied manually on top of the base CC 2013 release by mounting the CC update file given below, and then running the included “Adobe Patch Installer” app. They are multi­lingual packages and each one includes all supported languages. Make sure the base application was run at least one time (started up, signed in and activated) before applying the patch update.

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

We have them all here in one place, so you may want to bookmark this page – because if you ever have any issues updating any of your CC 2013 programs, here’s your workaround solution!

If you don’t already have the necessary base release installed for any CC app, then you can just direct download the free trials here… Those offline product installers plus these update patches make a complete set for backup – and if you like, you can burn them to disc or copy them to a flash drive, and keep just in case.

Also included in the table below are release notes with everything that’s new and changed in each update.  For what’s new in CC vs. CS6 generally, see this feature comparison.

We will be keeping this download list current with all new CC updates going forward… Please let us know in the comments below if there’s anything you need that you don’t see here!

Note the Edge tools and services – Edge Animate, Edge Reflow, Edge Code, and Edge Inspect – are not included in the list above because as far as we can tell, there are upgraded via full new releases instead of patch updates… The same goes for Adobe Lightroom.  You can find the latest releases of each of those tools in our complete CC direct download links.

    How to offline update for adobe cc?
    Because all must online update.
    Help me


  2. Anonymous

    it’s not letting me update, says application not applicable? for illustrator 17.1 indesign 9.2 and photoshop 14.2

    • Hi,

      Before trying to apply any CC app updates, make sure to actually install and run the application first (let it fully start up). The program will sign you in (or ask you to sign in with your Adobe ID), which will activate the software. Then reboot your computer, and apply the appropriate update that you down­loaded here.

      If you’re still having difficulties after that, then try uninstalling the app entirely, rebooting your system, and repeat the above instructions.

  3. Woody

    Hi! How update? For example Photoshop: I need to patch first 14.1, 14.1.1 … or directly apply 14.2.1?

    • Hey Woody, you can directly apply the final update you want… As mentioned in the article, they are cumulative – meaning each later patch includes all previous changes since the initial release.

      So, the current Photoshop CC 14.2.1 update includes everything in 14.2, 14.1.2, 14.1.1, and 14.1 combined.

    So I’m having this issue on my computer where I have to come to this site or to the Adobe updates page to download every part of the CC updates…

    For Photoshop, I cannot find the “Adobe ShareOnBehance 1.0.3” update anywhere. I don’t really need it, but it’s annoying to think I have an update available that can’t download.


  6. thomas

    could you tell me where the Adobe ShareOnBehance 1.0.3 update is?

    Hey can you add the download link for Adobe Camera Raw 8.4?
    Can’t find it anywhere on Adobe’s site for direct download.
    Thanks for this great site!

  10. Typo

    I have Adobe Illustrator 17.0.0 installed but the update did not work to patch it to Illustrator 17.1 (the same problem with Photoshop 14.2.1 or Indesign 9.2.1).

    It’s not letting me update, says: application not applicable…

    Dear ProDesign Team, do you have an solution for my problem?

    Many thanks in advance.

    • Hello Typo, what message are you getting exactly? Is it “Update Failed / Updates could not be applied. This patch is not applicable for you”?

      First off, you must have a valid/paid CC membership or subscription for these app updates to work. And before trying to apply any of these patches, make sure to actually install and run the application first (let it fully start up). The program will sign you in (or ask you to sign in with your Adobe ID), which will activate the software. Then reboot your computer, and apply the appropriate update that you down­loaded here.

      If you’ve already been running the application, then sign out of and then back in to Creative Cloud to refresh the activation state. In other words, sign out of the CC Desktop App manager and log back in again. That will force it to scan your Adobe products (it apparently only scans once a day otherwise).

      If you’re still having difficulties after that, then try uninstalling the app(s) entirely via your operating system, downloading and running Adobe’s special CC Cleaner Tool, rebooting your system, and then reinstalling and reactivat­ing the apps per the above instructions.

      Hopefully that will fix it for you. Otherwise, there must be some issue with your licensing that we can’t help with… See this discussion for more details.

    Adobe Camera RAW 8.5 please 😀
    Thank you

  12. Hi everyone, if you’re looking for the “biggest update yet” to CC, it’s the new Creative Cloud 2014 Release that Adobe launched this week and is now available for free upgrade or free trial…

    So here are the direct download links to this all-new version:

    I have the CS3 Web Premium discs and a Macbook pro with no disc drive. How do I get it installed? Are there no downloads for CS3??? I know it’s old but I paid a lot of money for it (when it was new) and would like to still use it. Any help would amazing…


  15. MiqViq

    Hi, thanks for these.
    How about new CC 2014 updates?

  16. johnny

    This is awesome.
    Thanks ProDesignTools.

    All the Adobe program updates require a new keygen. I’m getting a mismatch license error after updating.

  18. Ruth Nicholls

    Hi, hope this is the right place to ask this question.

    I have CC2014 and LR5.5 on my Macbook Air with Mavericks. I’d like to upgrade the OS X to Yosemite, the latest version. My question is – Will I have difficulty with my Adobe products, will I have to re-install them (with all the re-setting of preferences that that entails) or will it ‘just work’?


    • Hello Ruth, nice to see you again. Generally with Mac OS upgrades, there are two options – an Upgrade Install or a Clean Install. You should be able to do the first – a standard upgrade install, which preserves all of your personal data and applications intact (unless you specifically tell it to do an Erase & Install instead).

      Of course, it would always be a good idea to make a full backup beforehand anyway, especially when doing something as significant as an operating system upgrade.

      See this article for more details and a step-by-step on the process:

      How to Upgrade Install OS X Yosemite on Your Mac

  19. Ruth Nicholls


    Thank you, very helpful. I’ll read what’s on your link, then go ahead and upgrade. i presume a Time Machine back-up beforehand is all I need to do? If not, what do you mean by a ‘full’ back-up?


    • Sure Ruth, Time Machine should work fine for backing up before an upgrade on Apple…

      On Windows, there are many different backup solutions and options, which is why we mentioned making sure that a full one was made first.

  20. Note that going forward, Adobe will not use patch installers, but instead will issue complete new release downloads.

    The direct links above continue to work – but to download the newest releases of the Creative Cloud 2017 tools, check out the standalone installers here:

    New Adobe CC 2017 Direct Download Links, for Windows and Mac

    All Creative Cloud subscribers are entitled to download & use whatever CC version you want for your tools.
