Adobe CS6 Trial Downloads: Direct Links (no Manager or Assistant)

[UPDATE (May 2019) – Some of these still work to download the old CS6 trials (plus Edge Animate 1.5), but Adobe has recently taken down many links… However, we also now have the all-new Adobe CC 2019 Direct Download Links!]

[UPDATE (Jan. 2017) – Adobe just stopped selling CS6 entirely – here’s why.]

Creative Suite 6 is now available for instant download and direct shipping, and there are many important differences in this release compared to Creative Suite 5, including hundreds of new features added to the individual applications.

Get Adobe CS6 Now

Here we’ve put together a complete set of Adobe CS6 direct download links for all the new products (Windows and Mac OS), for instant easy access and the ability to use your own download manager or download assistant if you have any difficulty with what Adobe normally employs and need to get the trials without it…

Whether you’re considering buying a full version or will be upgrading from a prior CS release, or even if you’re getting a volume license or joining the Creative Cloud, you can always use these free trials to install, run, and activate the CS6 software on your system, without needing to reinstall.  All of these CS6 trials will run fully for 30 (or possibly more) free days after initial launch.

Where available, we’ve also linked the free CS6 Extra Content downloads (aka Additional or Functional Content).  Direct links for both the Adobe Muse 30-day trial plus the completely FREE, full Adobe Edge Animate 1.5 are offered as well (to install Edge Animate, see these tips).

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

Below is a table for CS6 trials in major languages. These links go to the auth­entic and original CS6 files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine, safe, legal, and will not change. For Windows, each program consists of up to 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 just a single .dmg file for each program.

The supported Language Sets vary by product. The Western Euro­pean languages can include French/Français, German/Deutsch, Dutch/Nederlands, Italian/Italiano, Spanish/Español, Portuguese/Português, Danish/Dansk, Finnish/Suomi, Swedish/Svenska & Norwegian/Norsk. To see which product supports which languages, visit the main Adobe trials page and then click on the selection menu for whichever product(s) you’d like to try – it will tell you which languages are currently available.

You need to have a free Adobe account and be logged into it to use the links below, as Adobe sets a session cookie on your browser that allows you to access the direct download links. Otherwise, you will receive an “access denied” or “no permission” message block­ing the connection. So please follow these instructions carefully or the links will not work!

  1. Adobe recommends temporarily turning off any surfing restrictions you might have running, like site or cookie blocking, filtering, firewalls or antivirus software.
  2. Click «HERE» to visit this page first, before clicking any of the links in the table below – this is critical!
  3. If asked, sign in with your Adobe ID or take a minute to create one for yourself (free).
  4. OK! Now you’re logged in at Adobe with the trials cookie set, so you can instantly download any of the software below. Just make sure you have enough disk space.
  5. Download the files either by clicking directly on the DDL links, or by right-clicking and choosing “Save Link As…” on the popup menu – and save all files to the same place.
  6. Then follow the product installation instructions here.

All of these trials are supported on Mac OS X or Windows (32-bit x86 and 64-bit x64), with the exception of After Effects CS6, Premiere Pro CS6, and SpeedGrade CS6 which are 64-bit only. For more, see the complete set of system requirements for Creative Suite 6.

If you need or want the newer Acrobat XI (released Oct. 2012) instead of Acrobat X which comes bundled in the CS6 suites, then see our Acrobat XI Direct Download Links.

Note there is no separate trial download for Photoshop CS6 “Standard” – the trial is always the Extended version (having all Photoshop features including 3D and motion-based content), and then you decide which version you’d like to keep at time of product purchase.

You do not need to uninstall previous versions of Creative Suite; 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, and CS6 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.

*** 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 CS6 Extra Content

This is Extra Content (also called Functional Content) that Adobe bundles with some CS6 applications. It is technically optional and not required to run the main products, but will improve your experience if you can take the time to download and add it to your installation.

What’s included in this free additional content are typically media assets, templates, tutorials, documentation, fonts, footage, sample files and projects, and so on. If you own a suite, you can download the bundle for that plus whichever applications are in it.

  • Illustrator CS6 Extra Content (112 MB)
              Windows:  File 1                  Mac:  File 1
  • InDesign CS6 Extra Content (130 MB)
              Windows:  File 1                  Mac:  File 1
  • Premiere Pro / Encore CS6 Extra Content (733 MB)
              Windows:  File 1   File 2      Mac:  File 1
  • After Effects CS6 Extra Content
              AE content will be migrated to the After Effects Exchange.
  • Adobe Audition Content Download Extras
              This contains thousands of royalty-free audio sound effects and music loop files.

    where can find the crack dll for premiere cs6 ?

  2. Mujtaba

    when i go to download adobe Photoshop cs 6, then it is not downloaded… plz give me permission to download

    • Yes, all the CS6 trial download links here still work. But please make sure you are carefully following the important download instructions (given in the article above) before you click any of the links.

      That’s required by Adobe’s servers; otherwise the Creative Suite 6 direct links won’t work and you’ll get that “access denied” message instead. If you still have any difficulties, then try a different web browser, another computer, or Internet connection.

      Also, make sure you’re not blocking or filtering anything with your browser(s) – like cookies, downloads, or any sites or URLs – or running blocking utilities like Ghostery, AdBlock, or Disconnect. Adobe recommends temporarily turning those things off (including antivirus, firewalls, etc. – it’s the first step in those directions above). Some third-party download managers or other utilities may also interfere with the process.

      If you’re still stuck, check out this list of download tips we put together to help.

      Then, to complete the installation, you must have Administrator privileges on your computer.

    Thanking you very much.

    Considering the program Fireworks is no longer supported or updated, if you download as a trial, is that trial still limited to 7 days, or does it just keep working? And if it is limited to 7 days, does it make a difference if you download from the older links, vs the 2019 links, in that regard?

    I had purchased Studio MX, but all my stuff got ruined in a water main break. If I could find the original product key (if not thrown out), would that work to keep using it? Thanks for any light you can shed on these questions.

    @ProDesignTools

    Thank you! I really appreciate your taking the time to answer my questions. 😊

    Looks like this method is no longer working… CS6 master collection says “not found” and previous download pages now redirect to “https://prodesigntools.com/helpx/download-install.html

  8. Here’s an important update for you on the availability of CS direct download links:

    Guys, the links no longer work. Is there an alternative?

  10. Andy

    @Andy
    Sorry, just realised about the comments that you recently made. Bleh, that’s frustrating

  11. NoisyBoy

    Plz, Re-Check link to download Premiere Pro CS6, I can’t download today !
    Thank you !

  12. Hello,

    If anyone is still looking for a download for Adobe CS6, you can contact Adobe support to get one. I needed a copy of CS6 Master Collection and I just went on to their website, started a chat, and in about 5 minutes they provided a direct download link. I was able to download and still activate using my serial number and signing in.

    Thanks,
    Charles L.

  14. AmmarF

    Hello,

    Why when I went to click the link above for Adobe Production Premium, it came out somewhere else?

  15. Michael

    Hello,

    Why is it critical to click the link in Step 1?

    It just takes me to the download page for Adobe Premiere Elements.

    Thanks.

    • Yes, following those instructions (first) is essential in order for the direct links to work… That process sets a session cookie on your browser that is required by Adobe’s download servers; otherwise you will get “access denied” instead when clicking on the links.
