  1. BTW, i’m from the third world. in a development country. if we have money, we wouldn’t pirate anything in the first place

    • That doesn’t make it any less dangerous or illegal, unfortunately.

      Regions with the highest rates of piracy correspondingly also have the highest rates of infection.

  2. I am a Training Manager/Instructor for the Air Ground Operation Scholl at Nellis AFB, NV. I have used older versions of Captivate and trying to convince my commander to allow me to purchase Captivate 2019. Since I am an Educator as well as working for DOD, I wanted to know if I can get the discount.

  3. I purchased ADOBE CS6 and it was expensive. I am a Hepatocellular Carcinoma (liver cancer) patient who had a liver transplant. I purchased ADOBE CS6 and now it will not work. I was told they don’t support it or something like that. I PAID A LOT OF MONEY and I should be able to continue using it.

    I don’t know who is responsible for this but it’s not right. I am working on a book and I need to use the software I paid for in good faith.

    • Hello Michael, we’d be happy to try to help you – but we’d need to know a bit more about the specific issue you’re having… What stopped your CS6 from working – did you change computers? Do you receive any error or other message now, and if so, what is it exactly?

      Where did you purchase the software/license originally? What type of computer (operating system version) are you trying to run or install it on now?

      It’s true that CS6 has been discontinued and is no longer supported by Adobe, but it may still be possible to use it depending on what you’re trying to do…

      Thanks for helping us to understand better what’s going on.

  4. Hey Team Pro Design Tools,

    I’m a student and unable to afford Adobe CC subscription. I will be grateful if you can help me with one year subscription.

    • Sorry, we don’t have the license or power to do that – but we do run Adobe giveaways at least twice every year and will continue to do that in the future…

      Just sign up for our monthly newsletter, and you will be informed when the opportunity to win a free Creative Cloud subscription arises!

  5. Hi,
    I graduated in 2012 from F.I.D.M. as a Product Development of Merchandising Major, and at the time I wasn’t able to purchase Illustrator or Photoshop. Was wondering do you have a post-graduate discount of some sort? It would be very appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Monique

    • Hello Monique,

      There isn’t any sort of Creative Cloud discount offered after you graduate. However, Adobe says: “Documents dated within the last six months are considered current.”

      So if you have anything with a date or validity within the past 6 months that says you’re a student (e.g., your student ID, transcript, tuition bill, etc), then you should be able to get the education discount.

      Otherwise, you would no longer be eligible – unless you’re a teacher, or work for a charity or non-profit organization.

      Sorry the news isn’t better for you, but thanks for asking!

  6. Thank you for your honest response!
    So does a current statement of paying back a student loan count?

    Sincerely, a hopeful graduate,
    Monique Rubio

    • Regrettably, repaying a student loan does not make one eligible for Adobe’s education discount… You’d have to currently (or recently) be a student or teacher. Proving this can be a simple as having a “.edu” or “.k12” email address, to be instantly verified.

      But other than what we’ve described, the regular subscription rates would apply.

  7. If I understand the educational pricing, the first year is $19.99/month, and subsequent years are $29.99/month. As a student, one must maintain eligibility status every 6 months.

    Once that eligibility window has passed, I assume the subscription then just reverts to a standard subscription? $52.99/month or $49.99/month paid annually.

    In other words, the $29.99/month pricing is only valid while your student eligibility is active (including any time remaining on the subscription, and Adobe’s grace periods). Correct?

    • Hey George, that’s close. You’re right on all the pricing, for both students and teachers.

      However, you only need to reconfirm academic status once per year in order to receive Adobe’s education discount, at the time of annual renewal…

      So the question then becomes, what happens when you graduate or leave school?

      Well, Adobe says: “Documents dated within the last six months are considered current.”

      So if you have anything with a date or validity within the past 6 months that says you’re a student (e.g., your student ID, transcript, tuition bill, etc), then you should be able to get the education discount.

      Otherwise, you would no longer be eligible and the subscription would revert to the regular rate.

    • OK great, thanks! So best case scenario, one might be able to renew the annual subscription at the tail end of the 6-month window, gaining 12 months. So possibly 18 months of post-student eligibility pricing.

      But after that, you are looking at the full subscription.

      I discovered an inexpensive online course that qualifies you as a certified student in Adobe’s eyes, but it’s a self-directed course that would not have a specified “graduation” date. So I’m not sure how exactly it would work out long-term, but would definitely save a couple hundred bucks for the first year or so.

      I’ve emailed them for further clarification.

      Thanks!

    • George, you’re right on all that, except that taking a cheap online course from a website won’t work. The reason is because in order to receive the education discount from Adobe, you must be enrolled at an accredited institution (e.g., a primary or secondary school, college or university).

      For more details, see:

      Adobe Student & Teacher Eligibility Requirements

      In other words, you can’t just pay a few bucks for an online class somewhere. Although as mentioned in the article above, even part-time students or people of any age who enroll for a course at their local community college (i.e., a degree-granting institution providing full-time instruction) can be eligible to receive the student discount from Adobe.

    • They are claiming very openly that they are accredited for the Adobe Student discount. It’s one of the main features for their course.

      Do you have some specific knowledge that this is untrue?

    • That would not be claiming they are accredited. Accreditation is an official government/agency evaluation process that schools regularly go through to meet and maintain rigorous quality standards.

      Rather, they claim that taking an Adobe Certified course online is enough to get the discount, but that is not backed up by Adobe.

      Adobe is clear everywhere the student discount is mentioned:

      Who qualifies for the Adobe Creative Cloud student discount?

      To qualify for a Creative Cloud student discount, you must be at least 13 years old and enrolled in a university, college, primary school, secondary school, or valid home school.

      In over a decade of running this site, we’ve never once heard of anything like that as qualifying someone to get the student discount. Otherwise, it would be mentioned in Adobe’s terms (or somewhere on their site), and more people would be doing it.

    • OK, thanks for the info. I am surprised that site would offer the Adobe Educational discount so blatantly if they weren’t able to actually offer that discount. I’m going to contact Adobe directly about it. Thanks for the insight.

    • Yes, that’s a good idea – they can confirm for you. And again here, on Adobe’s Education FAQ (look under “Students and educators: Am I eligible for a discount?”), you will see they are very specific, precise, and careful about which educational institutions qualify.

      If the qualifications weren’t that way, then the program would be rife with abuse. And if the program were easily abused, then it wouldn’t last.

    • Yep I found it odd myself, which is why I did some digging around for more clarification, and found your post.

      That said, under the “Qualified institutions” section, Adobe mentions this vague criteria:

      “ Other qualified examples as listed from time to time on Adobe.com”

      And:

      “ Named educational entities approved in writing by Adobe”

      So who knows. That opens up the door to a lot of possible unknowns.

      But I agree, it seems unlikely. I just find it hard to wrap my head around that online school so blatantly offering as a key selling point something they are unable to provide.

      Will be curious the hear what Adobe has to say.
