Welcome to your Creative Cloud membership! Get started managing your account, payments, and apps. Here’s how.
There are two ways to activate your Creative Cloud membership for the first time:
- If you purchased Creative Cloud directly from Adobe, sign in with your Adobe ID. When you sign in, you activate the Creative Cloud license and all apps and services that are associated with your Adobe ID. You can then use your apps and services normally. For more information, see Sign in and sign out to activate Creative Cloud apps.
- If you purchased Creative Cloud from a reseller, you may have received a redemption code. To use a redemption code to activate your membership, see “Creative Cloud membership” in Redemption code help.
To manage the account information for your Adobe ID (for example, change your password or payment information), follow these steps:
For more detailed information and step-by-step instructions, see Manage your Adobe ID account.
If you have multiple Adobe IDs, you’ll need to contact us to consolidate your accounts. Contact us, and then click Still need help? Contact us. Choose your contact option (phone or chat), and a customer service representative will assist you.
Using the Creative Cloud desktop app, you can install and update apps, sync files and fonts, find stock images and creative assets, share your creative work with others, and edit preferences such as language setting. See Use the Cretive Cloud desktop app to manage your apps and services.
You can upgrade your plan —for example, from Single App to Creative Cloud All Apps. Or you can switch plans—for example, from a month-to-month to an annual plan. See Upgrade or change your Creative Cloud plan.
To convert a free trial to a paid membership, see Convert a trial to a paid Creative Cloud membership.
To convert trial installations of Creative Suite 6 apps to a Creative Cloud membership, see Convert Creative Suite 6 applications to Creative Cloud membership.
To upgrade to a Creative Cloud with Adobe Stock membership, see Manage your Stock membership.
If your membership is about to reach the end of its term, it's easy to renew or extend it. You can also restart a membership that has expired. See Renew or restart your Creative Cloud membership.
