Adobe offers a free Creative Cloud Membership that includes a trial of all Adobe desktop software. This allows you to evaluate individual products or editions, then convert the installed trial to a full version. You can convert from a trial to a full version at any time by signing up for a full Creative Cloud membership or a single-app membership. When purchasing a membership subscription, you are required to be online and to login with an Adobe ID to start using your full version.
You must accept the license agreement and warranty terms to use this product. Visit our Product License Agreement page for details. This product will not function without mandatory activation and registration via the Internet. Phone activation is not available. See Activate and deactivate Adobe Creative Cloud apps for details.
The individual associated with the Creative Cloud membership can use the desktop applications available in Creative Cloud on two computers at once, regardless of operating system. See your Product License Agreement for more information.
To use the product on a third computer, you will be presented on launch with the option to remotely sign out of one of the other systems. You may also first deactivate the software on one computer by choosing Help > Sign Out.
Some Adobe Product installers install fonts into a default system font directory. If the installer finds older versions of these fonts in the default system font directory, it will uninstall the older versions and save them to a new directory. Learn more at Creative Cloud Fonts FAQ.
To find out how to install additional fonts, visit the Fonts Installation page.
