Direct Download Links for Adobe Photoshop & Premiere Elements 9

Direct download links for the Adobe Elements 9 family

[UPDATE (October 2018) – These still work to download the old Elements 9 trials. We also now have the new Elements 2019 Direct Download Links!]

Continuing our history 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 for the brand new releases of Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9. And for the first time ever, Adobe is offering both products for both Windows and the Mac.

The links given below go to the authentic and secure files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine 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 (the Adobe DLM). With the links provided below, you can use your browser’s down­load capability, or another download manager of your choice.

For Elements on Windows (both PSE 9 and PRE 9), 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!

The additional content contains InstantMovie themes, title templates, DVD/Blu-ray menu templates, and music to enhance your movies created with Adobe Premiere Elements 9 software. Themed HD and SD content includes Birthday Party, Road Trip, Outdoor Wedding, Broadway, Kid’s Channel, Family Memories, Extreme Sports, News Reel, Comic Book, and more.

Languages supported: The Elements 9 trials are currently available in English, French/Français, German/Deutsch, Dutch/Nederlands, Italian/Italiano, Spanish/Español, Portuguese/Português, Swedish/Svenska, Japanese/日本語, and Chinese/简体中文, for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS. Adobe says additional language versions for Windows will be available soon. See also the minimum system requirements for PSE 9 and PRE 9.

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.

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 9.
  • If you run into any difficulties, see the Elements 9 Installation Troubleshooting page.

*** 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!

    I followed the instructions above entirely to download Photoshop elements 9. On opening the Install, I get:

    “install” is damaged and can’t be opened. you should eject the disk image.

    What can I do ??? I did buy that software (years ago maybe, but I bought it) – any suggestions ?

  2. Sue

    I purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 and have the CD and the serial numbers. It is loaded on my old computer, but want to put it on my new computer. Problem is that my new computer does not have a CD drive.
    Can I download it off the website and use the serial number to validate it?

  3. June Oakley

    I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 9. I tried to reload it back on my computer, but it says the Serial # is not correct. The # is XXXX-YYYY-ZZZZ-AAAA-BBBB-CCCC. Can you help me?
    Thank you

    • Sorry June, we don’t have the ability to fix licensing issues with the software – it’s beyond our power and control… You have to contact Adobe Customer Support about those kinds of questions; only they can help:

      (via live online chat is usually fastest/easiest)

      You could ask them to reset the product activations for your serial number, and see if that helps.

    I downloaded adobe elements 9 (disk) from my old PC to my new PC. downloaded no problem – but when I open it up, it asks me to download directx, which I have the latest version… any suggestions would be appreciated

  5. Laureen Raftopulos

    I have an old version of Adobe Elements 9 which came on the Laptop I purchased as part of a special they were running many years ago. I needed CC for some software I had bought and so ran that in conjunction for a year. That year has just expired and I didn’t renew CC. The problem is it has wiped out my old Adobe Elements 9 and rendered it totally useless. How can I get my old elements 9 running again?

    • Not sure Laureen – Adobe CC and Elements are entirely different pieces of software and installations. They shouldn’t have anything to do with each other, nor should they interfere with one another.

      If you’re having issues with your Elements 9, then you should be able to uninstall it, redownload it here from this page above, and reinstall it.

      If you have any other particular symptoms or error/messages that are happening, feel free to share them and we’ll try to help further.

    I downloaded adobe photoshop elements 9 on here because my Mac computer does not have a disc drive. When I try to install out says “Install” can’t be opened. You should eject the disc image. HELP

  7. joey

    after I hit the unlock in the bottom left where it says “allow applications downloaded from”, there is no button that says anywhere. my only two options are “App Store” and “App Store and identified developers”, but no other options. Now what?
