  1. Hello! May I know if I am required to provide the credit card information in order to start the trial plan in order to get those free creative cloud membership benefits?

    Or once I sign up for the adobe account will I automatically get those free benefits?

    Please advise, thanks!

    • Hi Jacky, that’s a good question. Can you get a free Creative Cloud membership without providing any credit card, PayPal, or other payment information?

      The answer is yes. All you need is a free Adobe ID to get started. You’ll get access to the free Creative Cloud membership, which includes almost all of the features listed above.

      A form of payment is required only when you want to try out the full desktop tools (e.g., Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.), to start a 7-day free trial of the professional apps.

      Otherwise, your membership will continue at the free level forever, with access to the Starter versions of desktop tools like Premiere Rush or XD or Fresco, free Adobe Bridge, plus the 2 GB of online cloud storage, as well as over 1,000,000 free Adobe Stock assets you can download, and everything else described in the article.

  2. Hello! If I install the 7-day trial version of after effects in my free creative cloud membership, will i get fined when the free trial ends?

    • There are no fines. But generally, like most subscription services, you do need to cancel a free trial if you don’t want to continue subscribing.

      So your form of payment (e.g., credit/debit card, PayPal) would be charged if you haven’t canceled your free trial before the end of the first 7 days.

      However, you can still receive a full refund for another 14 days afterwards if you don’t want to continue with a paid membership. More details here:

      But if you just want to access the free level of Creative Cloud (as described in the article above) and not to get the trials of the premium desktop tools (like Photoshop or Illustrator), then you can simply sign up and no credit card is ever required.

      Lastly, you may find this guide helpful:

      Hope that answers your question; if not, then just post back!

    • Hello Vidit, thanks for your comment. As mentioned in the article, the Starter plan of Adobe XD is included in the free level of Creative Cloud membership.

      The free XD Starter plan is not a trial and does not expire. It allows anyone to download and use XD for personal use at no cost, and includes all design and prototyping tools. It doesn’t require a subscription though it does have usage limits on premium sharing and collaboration features.

      Essentially, XD Starter is intended for those learning UI/UX design who have limited needs to share or collaborate with others. For more details, visit here.

      By contrast, the 7-day trial you saw above is for the full version of XD with no limits.

      Bottom line, Adobe XD is not trialware, nor freeware, but freemium. Hope that clarifies.
