[UPDATE – Also see our new Holiday Creative Cloud 2024 Giveaway!]
This June Adobe shipped the “CC” lineup of products, the new release that replaces last year’s CS6. The CC version contains hundreds of new features compared to CS6, and it is available only via Creative Cloud membership… And that is exactly what we’re giving away for free below, and it’s open to all.
In all, the Creative Cloud comes with 15 new desktop applications (Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, InDesign CC, Muse CC, and all your favorites), together with other complementary tools and services (Acrobat XI Pro, Lightroom, DPS, Typekit, and many more). See the entire contents of what’s in Creative Cloud, where all ongoing upgrades are automatically included at no additional charge.
Also now available are all the free CC trial downloads, if you want try them out to see what’s new for yourself – and they will install and run side-by-side with any older CS versions you may have, with no problem. Even if you’ve tried previous Creative Suite tools, everyone is entitled to a brand new free tryout period with all of the CC apps.
Meanwhile, Adobe says they will continue to offer the older Creative Suite 6 software for those who prefer to buy a static version with traditional licensing, and the free CS6 trials are still out there too. But with the Creative Cloud, you also receive access to download, install, and use the CS6 versions as well (in addition to CC), if you would like or need to.
