Direct Download Links for Adobe Photoshop/Premiere Elements 11

[UPDATE (October 2018) – These still work to download the old Elements 11 trials. We also now have the new Elements 2019 Direct Download Links!]

Continuing our custom of providing the direct download links for major Adobe products such as Creative Cloud, CS6, Lightroom 6/CC, and Acrobat DC, below you’ll find the direct links from Adobe’s servers for the free trials of the all-new releases of Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11, for both Windows and Mac OS.

Direct Download Links for Adobe Elements 11 - Get It Now!

These links go to the authentic and secure files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine, safe, legal, and will not change. They are especially useful when you are unable to download Adobe’s free trials via other means – often due to difficulties with the Akamai Download Manager or Adobe Download Assistant…

With the links provided below, you can use your own browser’s download capability (without DLM), or another download manager of your choice.

For setting up Elements on Windows (both PSE 11 and PRE 11), each program consists of two downloaded files: an .exe and a 7-Zip file (.7z). The .exe file will only work (and install) once the .7z file is fully downloaded and resides in the same location. For the Mac, it’s just a single .dmg file for each program.

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

Installation Tips

Download New Adobe CC 2018 Free Trials (Direct Links)

  • You do not need to uninstall previous versions of Elements; some users prefer to keep the older, familiar version(s) around as they come up to speed with the new version’s features.
  • Install with an account that has administrative privileges (not a Limited User Account if you are using Windows Vista).
  • For the easiest installation experience, quit any open programs, including virus protection software, prior to installing Elements 11.
  • Read the accompanying Photoshop Elements 11 Release Notes in English, French, or German.
  • If you run into any difficulties, see the Elements 11 Installation Troubleshooting page.

We suggest using a browser other than Internet Explorer to download the files above. They can be quite large and IE has been known to drop the extension (like “.exe”) from the Windows filename. If this happens and you can’t open a file, then just rename it to add back the extension. But generally, using Firefox or Chrome will work better – and if you have any issues getting the downloads to work with one browser, then try another.

*** Note: If you have any problems getting the files to download or install, be sure to read the earlier comments on this page – as most questions have already been asked and answered below!

    • Hi Geoffrey, you have to make sure to carefully follow the steps in the download instructions given in the article, or the links definitely won’t work and you’ll get those errors instead.

      We just tested all the links on this page and they all work fine from our end. If you still have any difficulties, try a different web browser, another computer, or a different Internet connection (avoid Wi-Fi which can be slower and less reliable).

      Hope this helps!

    I an very unhappy with Adobe and the Premiere Elements 11…. I installed late last summer and was working just great until in January when it will no longer load. I have talked with Adobe help line and they had suggested to uninstall and re-install completely which i have done several times now. I have also taken their advice and updated all of my Graphics Drivers etc. I have even tried to install the 64bit version as I thought this may be the problem since I am running 64 and did not install this in the summer but the 32bit version.

    I have a friend who also has this same problem. Different machine, different processor and graphics card set.
    Please find a solution or I will be forced from not buying any further products from Adobe as this has been a serous productivity loss for the both of us.
    I am running HP 9470M, I5 Vpro Processor. Windows 7SP1

    • Hey Andy, sorry to hear about your difficulties. Does the software display any sort of error or other message? Did Adobe give you any other advice since uninstalling and reinstalling didn’t work for you?

      Also, did you try the free trial of Elements 12 (which can run on the same machine), and if so, are there any problems with that?

    Hi, ( re Photoshop Elements 11)

    I have recently had to purchase a new PC, as my laptop crashed on me. I now want to reload the program from the disks I purchased, but seem to have lost it when I moved.

    I do have the serial number. I’m not sure if I can download it and insert my serial number, if so, how do I do it, and what website do I use.

    Ingrid Gane.

    Hi Romano (Premiere Elements 11)

    After reading your message I clicked the link and click the file 1
    but get access denied

    I referred to forum after your message.

    I am considering buying Premiere Elements 11 but have an extremely frustrating and annoying problem that I am unable to solve.

    After repeated failures to burn I have uninstalled the trial version and reinstalled it. Everything appears to function normally except at the disc burn stage.

    I am trying to burn a compilation of two files (1.File type – MP4 video, 88.2MB, Approx. 4 mins, and 2. File type MP4 video, 2.84GB, Approx 128 mins) linked in the menu. In the previous installation I was able to burn the separate elements but each time I tried to combine them the burn failed. The same thing is happening in the newly downloaded copy.

    Details of the error are reproduced below:

    A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: AppHangB1
    Application Name: Adobe Premiere Elements.exe
    Application Version:
    Application Timestamp: 5041d43d
    Hang Signature: ef2b
    Hang Type: 0
    OS Version: 6.1.7601.
    Locale ID: 2057
    Additional Hang Signature 1: …

    When prompting Windows to check for a solution the program closes.

    I am keen to buy the program as it does everything I want (in theory) but obviously am not interested if I cannot solve this problem.

    Do you have any suggestions?

  7. Trevor Mason

    PS – I forgot to mention in my previous note that it seems consistently to fail at 5% burn.

    I hope this helps.

  8. Trevor Mason

    I have discovered that PrE12 is giving exactly the same problem which makes me think that the problem might be with Windows. I was hoping that someone might be able to throw some light on the problem. I have a vague recollection of switching my PC on with a disc in it which might have caused some mischief internally. Any clues out there as to what I can do?

    • Not sure, it seems uncommon. We googled that message and this Adobe help thread came up; maybe it helps. It could also possibly be some sort of compatibility or driver issue with the particular disc burner you are using. Did you try it on a different computer? Are you certain you have the latest updates for everything? (including your operating system, DVD writer, and Elements 12.1 itself)

  9. Leon

    I purchased Elements 11. Recently I purchased an iMac and an iPad Air 2. Neither have a disk drive. How can I download Elements 11 to these devices?

  10. Jenna

    I purchased adobe photoshop 11 last year. My computer crashed and I had to have it completely cleaned and wiped. I went to install adobe 11 and I cannot find my cd, I have everything including the mac version but I don’t have the windows version cd. I have the serial numbers and everything – can I somehow still get it downloaded without having to purchase it again?

    • Yes Jenna, you should just be able to use the Elements 11 links above to download PSE11 and then activate the free trial with your valid purchased serial number.

      Please just be sure to carefully follow the step-by-step download directions given above before clicking on any of the direct links, otherwise they will not work.

    Hi, i want to download adobe photoshop full version of 11. But i didn’t get any full version, I only found the trial. Please anyone send me any link for the full version of adobe photoshop 11.

    • That’s right Rose, we have the free trials available here. At any time after you start a free trial, you can convert that trial version to a fully-paid release without needing to reinstall the software on your computer.

      However Photoshop Elements 11 is a few years old now and is not the latest and greatest release. Currently, Photoshop Elements 14 is the newest product, and we recommend using that instead because Elements 11 has been discontinued and you can no longer buy it from Adobe.

      So here are the direct links for PSE 14 instead.

  12. rose

    I want to download free of cost. Is it possible or not?

  13. rose

    And please instruct me as well on how to download this. I try many times but the links don’t work & i have not succeeded.

    • You have to make sure to carefully follow the steps in the download instructions given in the article, or the links won’t work and you’ll get an access or permissions “denied” message instead.

      If you still have any difficulties, try a different web browser, another computer, or a different Internet connection (avoid Wi-Fi which can be slower and less reliable) – while still following those same directions.

      Hope that helps!


    I can’t download the pse, it says access denied – why so?

  15. Yurina

    I bought photo shop elements 11 a long time ago. Installed to 2 computers, but now I have a new laptop. I want to move PSE11 to the new one, but I can’t install it. I have a serial number but not the DVD installer. Do you have an installer file in the cloud?

    • Yes, it’s right above on this page. These are direct download links to the old PSE11 installers.

      Just make sure to carefully follow the download instructions given above (before clicking on the direct links), as following those is absolutely required by Adobe’s servers in order to grant access.

  16. rose

    can i use elements 11 without an internet connection
