Over the years, we’ve put together a large collection of free Adobe books that we share with our readers here… This extensive set of helpful, no-cost books has now grown to over 30 different titles that you can legally download and use royalty-free, forever.

Read or Download the Free New Adobe After Effects Book!

These digital books cover Creative Cloud, Creative Suite, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Animate, XD, Light­room and more – but until now, we haven’t had a solid recent offering for Adobe After Effects.

Fortunately, this has now changed with the publication of the new “Motion Graphics in After Effects that Speaks to Your Brain” guidebook, which comes from Adobe Community Profes­sional and renowned AE guru, Dr. Mathias Möhl.

Dr. Möhl started writing this book before the coronavirus existed, and then generously decided to provide it 100% free for everyone for an unlimited time with no strings attached, as his contribution to supporting you in the midst of the crisis. His advice is to use your time wisely and learn new skills now, as they’ll help you to run a successful business once the pandemic no longer dominates our lives.

Even years after it went up, a lot of people still don’t know about it.

We’re talking about the free online documentation for all Adobe software – the official set of user manuals that can answer quite a few customer questions, and also be a great resource if you don’t use a product yet but want to find out more about it…

Read or Download the Free Adobe Photoshop Manual (PDF, 1000+ Pages)

This exists in searchable and downloadable form for all major Adobe applications, including the Creative Cloud, Creative Suite, Lightroom, Acrobat, Photoshop Elements, etc. – for all recent releases on both Windows and macOS.

For example, every so often we receive a question on how to save back to earlier versions from Adobe InDesign… Fortunately, this is answered in the “Saving Documents” section in InDesign’s online manual. (And for all the cases like these, we also put together a special roadmap for CC file compatibility.)

Free Stock! Download 75,000+ premium assets from the new Adobe Stock Free Collection

Each Adobe reference below can be downloaded as a complete offline ebook if you want (more about this below)… These books are substantial – the latest “Photoshop Help & Tutorials” hand­book is over 1,000 pages alone, and collectively the entire set of manuals for all Creative Cloud 2020 apps totals 7,000+ pages!
