Please follow the instructions below to enable access to Creative Cloud Desktop Apps on your personal device.

  1. From the Creative Cloud website, browse for and download your desired app. Click Apps on the top of the page to view all apps.

For more information on how to download or install apps, see Download and Install Creative Cloud apps.

Please also note that there are many apps that Adobe makes specifically for mobile devices in the event you don’t have a computer. They are generally less robust than the full apps, but still very useful. A list of the mobile apps may be viewed here:

To access them, it’s the same protocol… login to Adobe with your mobile device and select the apps you want to download.

For Higher Education students to continue developing skills, Adobe offers free “Daily Creative Challenges”. These are guided projects where participants receive creative prompts and connect with pros, mentors, and other students for feedback and support. Click on the app name to learn more: PhotoshopXD and Illustrator. Also, for inspiration and over-the-shoulder learning, watch pros share their creative process on Adobe Live daily at

For faculty seeking to engage students during campus closures, Adobe has curated resources to help them discover inspiring projects, best practices, and new ideas so they can continue to drive valuable learning in virtual environments.

Thank you.
