We’re on the Adobe Help Forums every day and regularly see users posting queries like “Can’t install Photoshop from the Creative Cloud” or “CC 2020 won’t download,” or “my product updates aren’t working”… It could be for the free trials or for the full paid versions.
Often the issue is related to one or the other download managers (DLM) that Adobe uses to deliver its software installers. Over the years and for various tools, they have used the Akamai Download Manager, the Adobe Download Assistant (ADA), the Adobe Application Manager (AAM), and now the Creative Cloud’s Desktop App.
Adobe employs these helper utilities because their downloads are usually large – multiple gigabytes – and download managers can help correct for unreliable Internet connections, and resume a download after it has been paused or unexpectedly broken.
But it turns out there can be interactions between the DLM and configurations of your computer, web browser, anti-virus software, Internet connection, Read more…

Adobe Acrobat DC 2020 is here! If you hadn’t heard, “DC” stands for Document Cloud, which is Adobe’s set of integrated online services to help customers better manage important and everyday documents. At the heart of Document Cloud is Acrobat DC – the industry standard for creating, sharing and editing PDFs – which was completely rearchitected for the initial DC 2015 milestone release some years back. For more information, see: What Is the Document Cloud?
For decades now, Adobe has provided industry-standard standalone installers for their creative products, for many valid reasons… Recent examples include the company publicly posting the direct download links for the CC 2019 and CC 2018 releases. In our view, the need is strong and they should continue to do the same going forward.
Hi – is it really true that Adobe Bridge (the full version) is totally free to download and use forever, and I don’t have to pay for it or have a subscription?
The answer is yes, it’s absolutely true – although not that many people know about it because Adobe hasn’t really publicized it widely…
“Creativity for All” is the key theme of the all-new CC 2020 release, which was just announced by Adobe this week at their annual MAX conference. This next generation of Creative Cloud includes hundreds of new features and advancements across their product line, focusing on three core goals: faster, more powerful & more reliable tools, creating anywhere & anytime with anyone, and exploring new frontiers… CC 2020 is the next major release following the CC 2019, CC 2018, CC 2017, CC 2015, CC 2014, and CC 2013 versions, which in turn replaced CS6 from 2012.
Every year, Adobe’s creative product launches seem to get bigger – and this year is no exception… This morning, in front of a record 15,000 attendees at the annual MAX conference, Adobe unveiled the new CC 2020 Release, which feels like their biggest product launch since they first introduced Creative Cloud over seven years ago.
Having originally launched almost eight years ago, by now you’ve heard about Adobe’s fast-growing Creative Cloud, you’ve dispelled the common myths about it, and perhaps are considering subscribing to CC now that over 18 million of your colleagues already have…
You probably also know that Adobe stopped development of the older “CS” releases back in 2012, and that there have been thousands of new product features, enhancements, and performance improvements added to CC since Creative Suite ended, as well as integral new services.
But did you know that no matter what you do, you can sign up right now for a zero-cost class of membership that never expires and provides free benefits for life? Anyone can have this free level currently in 83 countries worldwide, even if you still use the older tools instead, or even if you use no other Adobe products or services at all.
A short while ago, Adobe shipped version 2020 of Adobe’s “Elements” line – and since Elements releases are now named by the upcoming year instead of a version number, this edition would be the equivalent of version 18 in the previous numbering system.
And continuing our tradition of publishing the direct download links for major Adobe products such as Creative Cloud, Lightroom 6/CC, and Acrobat DC, below you’ll find the direct links from Adobe’s servers for the free trials and full offline installers for the new releases of Photoshop Elements 2020 and Premiere Elements 2020, for both Windows and macOS.
Adobe has really been sweetening the pot lately for you to try out their massive Stock photo collection… These are high-quality, curated images, illustrations, vectors, templates, photos, graphics, audio/music, and more from a vast collection of over 200 million assets to choose from. After acquiring Fotolia in 2015, Adobe rolled out a one-month-free offer which was nice, but it required paying for your first month up front (which would later be refunded if you canceled).
