We’ve mentioned Adobe TV in the past, but it just keeps getting bigger and better… When Creative Suite 6 was released, they published a 15-hour series of new online tutorials – but have recently doubled this to over 30 hours now of free video training for all CS6 tools.
You’ll learn the basics with Getting Started overviews plus What’s New reviews by product experts, with 274 total chapters covering all major CS6 applications.
If you don’t already have the programs installed on your computer but would like to get going today, you can easily download the free working trials for any CS6 product for Windows or Mac – then install, run, and start your training…
Acrobat is not listed below, but if you want to learn how to use that software then see these separate three hours for Acrobat X or two hours for Acrobat XI.
We’ve also linked below nearly two hours of sessions for the Creative Cloud, if decide to sign up for free membership there, or are already a member.
Install now: Get all new Creative Cloud 2023 direct download links and free trials.
Lastly, if you also like learning in print, then don’t miss this nice set of free new CS6 ebooks (over 1,000 pages). But here’s how the video courses break out:

For some reason most of these videos don’t play. Usually the first one loads and plays, then from there on the screen remains black when the others are clicked on. Any idea why this happens?
Not sure why Sylvester – just tested again and they all work fine on our end… Perhaps clear your browser cache/cookies and try again, or give it a shot with another browser?
I was wondering if I could redownload the adobe cs6 trial somehow as one of my folks was sick and was not able to use the computer. I am really interested in seeing if I want to buy this and if I can actually learn to use it with my intuos 4, I have the older stuff from you guys (trial) but like I said it is expired. :(
Hi Jennifer, you can download the CS6 trial as many times as you like, but you can only run it once on any given computer…
So unfortunately you can’t repeat it on the same system, and there’s really no way around that. But if you have another machine available, then you could install and run it fresh on that.
Hope everyone is well again and good luck!
A great big woops to the moderator that helped me – it was corel I downloaded not adobe, and I am so glad because I really want to try adobe and with its reviews I really want to buy adobe products more then anything else – thanks and again my apologies!!
Glad to hear you got it sorted out Jennifer, and thanks for letting us know – good luck and enjoy the trial!
I am a big fan of Adobe. I too bought the CS1 version of PS [Photoshop] way back, and want to download these latest videos covering CS6 features as my Internet is very slow. Is there any way I can do that?
Sorry, they are streaming only – so as far as we are aware, it’s not possible to download the videos for offline use. It’s possible there may be a third-party utility you can use, but there’s none we can suggest.
Can you have both Adobe CS2 and CS6 on the same computer?
Yes, you should be able to Cece – one does not uninstall the other and they should run side-by-side… In fact, some have kept all versions of Creative Suite running on the same system.
What is the ideal system or at least pretty good system to run on with Adobe Master Collection CS6?
Well the Master Collection suite – like most CS6 products – actually has some pretty specific system requirements for what you should have, particularly for the video tools… Just make sure your computer exceeds those specifications and you should be fine.
There is no official “ideal” because hardware technology is always advancing and it’s always possible to add more power, size, capacity, or speed… But if you beat those stated minimums by a good margin then you should be a happy camper.
Also helpful: Adobe has put together guidelines for How to Optimize Performance in Photoshop (CS6/CS5/CS4), if that’s one of your main applications.
I have never used CS6 – have bought it and would like to know for flyers and adverts, which is the best module to start with.
Greetings Philipa, Adobe InDesign will take care of all your needs for print!
Could you tell me how to licence my downloaded trial of CS6 if I want to proceed?
Hey there Graham, you just go to the CS6 area of the Adobe Store and purchase a license for whatever you want, then enter the serial number you receive into your trial version software – and you’re done, you now have a permanent (non-trial) copy.
I have tried everything that i have been told to get the lighting effects in Photoshop CS6 Extended to work. I have a PC operating on windows 7 64bit with 32 gig of ram available and am running a Quadro 2000d graphics card with adobe on a 256GIG SSD C drive and two other drives of 2 terabit each. I have the most up-to-date drivers for the graphics card but can not get lighting effects to work. I am also constantly losing the functions of the clone tool too. So I am resetting the tools every 4 to 6 hours. Do you have any suggestions on what the problem could be?
Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Hi Mark, did you google the problem at all? Maybe this Adobe Help Forum thread sheds some light?
If not, possibly you could describe your difficulty there and get a response from the Adobe engineers.

I recently purchased a groupon for four adobe courses: Photography, Photoshop CS6, Dreamweaver CS6 and Flash CS6. I noticed that one of the documents in each course includes a certification program. Is there any additional cost to become certified for these courses, or is this included in the groupon? Please advise.
Hello Grace, not really sure about that – Adobe has a certification program but not sure if that’s what Groupon included… You’d really have to ask them, the source where you purchased it.
In the meantime, feel free to help yourself to dozens of free downloadable Adobe books to better learn all products.

How can I reflect any photo in adobe photoshop CC 2014? I also want to make 3D text in photoshop. But I have no graphics card. Can I make 3D text any alternative method?
Hey there Vergie – yes, you can manipulate any image in Photoshop. But no, you do need a graphics card (even one that’s built-in to your computer’s chipset) in order to use 3D in Photoshop… See the complete Photoshop CC system requirements.
In particular, for 3D features, you need system graphics hardware or card with at least 512 MB of VRAM (video adapter memory). Adobe details this updated specification here:
“Graphics hardware not officially supported for 3D” – Photoshop CC, CS6
But as noted above, often even graphics hardware that is built into many modern computers is enough for basic operation (with modest performance) of Photoshop 3D, as well as other GPU-accelerated or -enabled features. For example, the often-included Intel HD Graphics 4000 technology is on Adobe’s list here:

Hello, I have Acrobat CS in my computer but am confused by the different iterations such as CC, DC, etc. Can you clarify this for me??
I am interested in a basic tutorial as I am a novice in redacting scanned documents of a book I have written. Will you also please advise me of a textbook on the basics of Acrobat?
Thanks in advance!
Sure Tom. These articles should clear up your first question:
