Download the Popular Adobe MAX 2016 Wallpaper (Full-Sized High Resolution)

[UPDATE (Oct. 2018) – Watch 132 hours of new training & tutorials from MAX 2018!]

Did you make it to MAX this year? Adobe’s Creativity Conference smashed all records with 10,000 attendees coming together in San Diego earlier this month, double from 5,000 just a few years ago… And that was despite the recent rise in the cost of a full conference pass to US$1,595.

For the price of that ticket, participants enjoyed major new product launches, inspirational key­notes from creative luminaries, hundreds of enriching training sessions, plentiful opportunities for networking with colleagues, access to the latest cool technology on the pavilion floor, meeting the Adobe product teams in person, the highly-anticipated “Sneak Peek” demos of jaw-dropping new features under development, and of course the famous MAX Bash party.

But if you didn’t make it, no worries – believe it or not, you can still tap into many of the best resources from the comfort of your own laptop, tablet, or phone!

The great news is that most of the courses were recorded on video and are now offered online – for free… In other words, pick your favorite Adobe tools and you can learn the latest tips, tricks and techniques from the best instructors in the field right from your desktop. There are six major tracks below (Creative Careers, Featured Speakers, Photography & Creative Imaging, Web & App Design, Graphic Design & Illustration, and Video) with many different topics; most classes are a little over an hour long and the complete collection of 170 videos runs to 235 hours of training in total.

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

Watch the Adobe MAX 2016 Keynotes, Sessions and Tutorials Online, Free!

Experience the Creativity Conference – online.  Adobe MAX gathers designers, developers, industry pros and visionaries to explore the latest technologies, techniques and strategies for delivering cutting edge creative work… Now available on-demand.

One really cool feature is you can download any of these presentations for later viewing offline on your computer… While watching your video online, just right-click on the playing window and select “Save video as…”, and then specify a location to save the video locally to your hard drive. The video will be downloaded in H.264 format with a .MP4 file extension, and can then be played back with almost any media player without an Internet connection, or transferred to a smartphone/iPhone or tablet/iPad for anywhere-anytime viewing. There’s also a Cast option to play back these classes from the Chrome browser on your TV or other devices.

So if you couldn’t make it to California this year, or didn’t have the $1,595 to needed to attend, didn’t win our MAX ticket giveaway, or weren’t able to catch everything you wanted there, then here are all the best new training and tutorials direct from the show, now free to watch… Totaling 235 hours in duration, that’s almost 30 eight-hour days worth of content (for real) with unlimited access – exciting enough to keep you busy for a while!

The entire directory to all 170 recorded sessions is given below.  What’s more, you can already preregister at no cost to get a $500 discount savings on the next MAX conference, plus see how you can fly there for free!

  1. Dana Pride

    This is great! But- Where are the Adobe MAX tutorials? The link to 235 hours goes to only the keynotes.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Dana, they’re all there – just scroll down a bit on that page and look for “Sessions on demand”…

      Then choose the category of courses you want to watch, from Featured Speakers, Creative Careers, Graphic Design & Illustration, Photography & Creative Imaging, Video, or Web & App Design.

  2. Paul

    There is no option to select “save video as” after right-clicking the videos.


    hi, i am trying to download the Adobe max tutorials of 2016. But the page link has expired! Any suggestion to download?

    • Hello Atul, it looks like Adobe moved some pages around on their site in preparation for MAX 2017

      But we found the new home for the MAX 2016 video recordings and restored the links to all the courses and sessions in the article above. Thanks for the heads-up!

  4. Paul

    I am not able to right click the videos and get the “save as” option.

    • Hey Paul – unfortunately when Adobe moved the courses to a different location last week, it seems they also removed the option to download the videos locally to your system… Sorry about that!

      However, see this comment from a reader for a good suggestion on how you might still be able to download these sessions (or any streaming videos) from your browser to your computer for watching offline.
