Download Adobe CS5 Trials, Free and Fully-Working for 30 Days

[UPDATE (June 2013) – These links still work!  If not, then use instead the direct download links for the original CS5 trials, the CS5.5 trials, the CS6 trials, or the brand new Adobe CC trials…]

Click to immediately download whichever you like, from Photoshop CS5 to Master Collection!
All CS5 trials are fully functional for thirty days and can run side-by-side on your system with older versions, without interference. The Windows or Mac downloads can be installed on multiple computers if desired – and if and when you are ready to buy, you can easily convert your trial to permanent unrestricted use without reinstalling the software in most cases:

Note there is a single trial download for Photoshop – it’s Photoshop CS5 Extended, which includes the Standard version. You decide which you wish to activate at the time of purchase.* The same thing goes for CS5 Design Premium and Design Standard – you get the bigger one and choose later. Also, the trials for the suites do not bundle Acrobat 9 Pro – so it must be downloaded separately.

If you’re upgrading to CS5, you can install a trial and then buy an upgrade to convert your trial into a purchased version. What’s more, a single CS5 purchase may entitle you to install and activate the software on two systems with certain restrictions. No serial number is needed to download or run the trials. For more information on these and other questions, refer to the full CS5 Trial FAQ.

* Note that for Adobe’s Education (Student and Teacher) Editions, there is only one version of Photoshop offered or available – the top-of-the-line Photoshop CS5 Extended. The good news is you’re getting up to 80% off the regular price!

[UPDATE (May 2012) – If you prefer you can use the direct download links for CS6.]

    Where tab to download??

    • Just click on the icon for the software you want, then select your product language and platform (Windows or Mac) to begin the download… If you don’t already have an Adobe ID you’ll be prompted to get one, but it’s a very easy process with just a few fields to complete.

    I downloaded the trial for CS 5 to which I have a product code, but when I try to activate the “MasterCollection_CS5_LS4.dmg” I get a Warning pop up window saying “The following disk image couldn’t be opened” and below a statement that the file “MasterCollection_CS5_LS4.dmg” is not recognized.

    How do I proceed?

    Thank you in advance.

  10. Nafis

    But it does not say where the CS5 free trial is!

    I am new student of graphic design. If you extend the free trial from 30 days and increase it to 60 days, I think more students will have success with your software.

    I have a purchased a windows version of CS5 that has been uninstalled from a previous computer. Is a apple trial version available to install from the web and then could I use the install code that I have ?

    Hi! So, I downloaded both the files File 1 and 2 for illustrator. It downloaded and when I opened them, I got a message saying “The file archive part of Adobe Illustrator is missing. You need all parts in the same folder in order to extract Adobe Illustrator CS6. Please download all parts” What should I do know?

    • It sounds like your browser (especially IE) may have dropped or changed the file extension when downloading the program… In that case, your computer might not know how to open it, or might think it’s a text file instead.

      If that happens, you would need to rename the file to add back the proper file extension… You have to hover your mouse over the link above and check what it is at the end; usually for Windows it’s a .exe or .7z or .zip file.

    Hi! So, I am getting a message which says “The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you’re running. Check your computer’s system information to see whether you need an x86 (32bit) or x64 (64bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.” What should I do now?

  19. Mansi

    I need to download Illustrator for my project, so could you please help me out.

    • Not sure Mansi. Which version of Adobe Illustrator are you trying to download?

      And what version of Windows are you running, and is it a 32-bit or 64-bit system that you have?

      Here’s what we found when we googled that error message. There’s a mismatch going on somewhere.

      However, are you sure you want an older CS5 or CS6 application instead of the newer/latest CC 2017 releases? As a Creative Cloud subscriber, you are entitled to run any CC version you wish (and/or CS6).

      If you have a 64-bit system, then you should be able to run most any recent Adobe CC product.

    Dear Sir,
    Dear Sirs,
    Recently my ssd boot drive failed, as did my backup, leaving me to re-install windows 7 pro from scratch ( quick tricky for a 80-year old, but made it ). Have lost much of my graphic software, much of which will not run on W10, so stuck with W7. Photoshop Cs5 has been lost. which I have been using for a few years ( mainly to provide assistance to my local Historic Group), and am aware that you, as do other firms, advertise free downloads. I presume mainly to evaluate it. I am checking to see if I can afford to replace it.
    As I am very familiar with it, I would ask you after 30 days clearly there is a cost to complete an installation. Please advise as with my limited means, may well direct me to buy Elements instead. Your advice would be appreciated.

    I await your comments and information with interest.

  22. George Webster

    Dear Sirs,

    Thank you for replying to my e-mail, however you did not appear to answer the main point of my enquiry. Please refer to my original request and you will see that as I have limited means, and no way of recovering my lost software, I wished to know what cost at the end of a trial period to complete the purchase.
    I would appreciate your response with interest.

    George Webster

  23. George Webster

    Dear Sirs,

    Again I thank you for prompt follow up. I seem to be missing a point somewhere. You state that ” there’s simply no way you can still buy Photoshop CS5 from Adobe,” which is something I am very much aware of, and why I was interested in your Webpage which says that I can have Photoshop CS5 as a free trial 30-day download from you.

    Can I make a fresh approach. Let us assume that I am new to graphic software, and would like to get Photoshop CS5 as I know it will run on my W7pro PC. At present I cannot entertain upgrading to W10 as much of my software will not run on W10. Hence it would make sense to go for CS5.
    Is there a problem.

    George Webster
