The Adobe Student and Teacher Editions look like a great deal. They offer big discounts, as much as 70% off normal prices. They’re available for most of Adobe’s most popular products, including the Creative Cloud (CC), Creative Suite 6, Lightroom 5, Acrobat XI, and Elements 13. They can be purchased by anyone who qualifies – primary, middle, and secondary school students, homeschoolers, college or university students, faculty, teachers, and administrators. Even part-time students or teachers can be eligible, and there is no maximum age limitation. They’re available pretty much worldwide in many languages on both Windows and Mac OS, and you don’t need any kind of coupon or promotion code to get the deep discounts.
So what’s the catch? Is the Academic software different or limited somehow? Read more…
A lot of people have been asking for this, and now there is a solution for all customers worldwide… Adobe’s CC 2020 release of creative desktop tools has been well-received, but some folks prefer not to have a monthly payment on their credit cards or would rather prepay for their Creative Cloud memberships upfront, a year (or more) at a time. This used to be tricky, but fortunately there is now a very easy way to do it for all products available.
For each different Adobe subscription plan, you’ll now find a dropdown menu with a One-Year Prepaid option when buying or renewing your Creative Cloud subscription. These prepaid plans are offered in up to 83 countries and allows you to make a one-time charge in advance of each year, rather than a smaller amount each month… It solves the problem for those who may have difficulties with month-by-month recurring payments, and it’s available for all different types of memberships: Individual, Education, or Business; including upgrades from older software.
[UPDATE – Also see our Winter Creative Cloud 2020 Giveaway!]
In June Adobe shipped the new CC 2014 product line, a major milestone of creative tools and services that upgrades last year’s CC 2013 version, which itself replaced 2012’s CS6. This latest CC 2014 release contains over 1,000 new features and advancements compared to CS6 (across all apps), and it is available only via Creative Cloud membership.
Adobe CC 2014 is also known as the Creative Cloud 2014 Release… And that is exactly what we’re giving away for free below, and this offer is open to everyone worldwide.
In all, Creative Cloud 2014 comes with 15 new desktop applications (Photoshop CC 2014, Illustrator CC 2014, InDesign CC 2014, Muse CC 2014, and all your favorites), together with other complementary tools and services (such as Acrobat Pro, Lightroom, Edge, Behance ProSite, Typekit) and much more. See the entire contents of what’s in Creative Cloud, where all ongoing upgrades are automatically included at no additional charge.

[UPDATE (Nov. 2019) – Watch 120 hours of new training & tutorials from MAX 2019!]
The Adobe MAX 2014 conference was held earlier this month, and as in previous experiences, it’s always the three most intense days of the year…
It comes complete with major product announcements from the company, inspirational keynotes from creative wizards, scores of learn-till-you-drop training sessions, plentiful opportunities for networking with colleagues, checking out the latest cool technology on the pavilion floor, meeting the Adobe product teams in person, the great buzz over “Sneak Peek” demos of mind-blowing features under development, and of course the all-out MAX Bash party with 6,000 of your peers.
Some good news – because of the major new feature updates announced last week at the big annual MAX conference, Adobe informed us that they reset the 30-day free trial period for Photoshop CC 2014 on both Windows and Mac…
In other words, no matter which version of Photoshop you’ve used or tried in the past, everyone now gets a brand new free trial of the latest-and-greatest release of this core application. This will give all users a chance to check out the new Photoshop for themselves, at no cost.
Of course, if you are already a Creative Cloud member, then these latest updates have already come to you automatically or whenever (as soon as) you want.
The Creative Cloud has been Adobe’s flagship product line since the launch of the CC release in the spring of last year – but ever since the Cloud was first announced in 2011, there has been persistent confusion over what the name actually means…
When readers ask us, “What’s new in the Adobe CC 2014 release?” – they usually mean what’s been added in terms of product features and improvements compared to previous versions such as CC 2013 or CS6.
And for the most part, we’ve answered that question in our prior article here:
But there’s a larger picture as well – in terms of what’s going on with pricing and what’s included with the different Creative Cloud plans, and whether/how Adobe is keeping its promise to evolve and bring new innovation to CC subscribers. So we’re going to try to tackle that here.
Did you miss Adobe’s big 2014 Create Now Tour? Would you like to see it now, online and on-demand?
The Create Now session we attended was packed – a large theater with standing-room only – and got terrific audience reviews and feedback… All together, over 100,000 people went to the tour around the globe.
[UPDATE (July 2015) – These still work to download updates for last year’s CC 2014 release… However we also now have direct links for the new CC 2015 product updates.]
Important! On this page you’ll find all the updates to CC 2014 (on Windows), since its initial launch in June 2014. If you need to install the full products themselves, then please see our CC 2014 download links first.
One of the main benefits of the Adobe CC 2014 release is receiving an ongoing stream of product updates at no extra cost… No longer do we have to wait 1-2 years for our tools to innovate and keep pace with evolving technologies; instead we get the latest and greatest features and enhancements as soon as they are ready.
