If you subscribe to Adobe CC (Creative Cloud – henceforward the only way to get the new versions of the Adobe software), you already know that your software must be downloaded via the Adobe Manager/Assistant to install it, and no installers remain on your system. If you need to reinstall, you must download again.
Well, ProDesignTools.com has created a page with direct download links to all the CC Trial versions – which can be used to install/reinstall the software, and activate using your CC account. Great resource!
SO many people are responding negatively to Adobe’s recent announcement of their sole offering of a cloud based Creative Cloud subscription that I’m seeing dozens of posts on the subject. The article below offers some links to follow the discussion (read: Rebellion), and a link to a petition to sign, if you find a life-long payment plan is not for you!
Today, the Adobe MAX conference started with it’s keynote address, introducing the fact that Adobe will no longer be offering the Creative Suite as stand-alone software, but instead will move to Cloud distribution for all it’s products. There will be no CS7, but rather a CC version (Creative Cloud).
According to John Nack’s blog (the Adobe Evangelist and Blogger) If you own a CS3 or later Adobe app, you can subscribe to Creative Cloud & get all the CS6 apps, 20GB of storage, and more at a huge discount ($29.99/month instead of $49/month in the US)–but note that the offer ends August 31st.

I just received this announcement. Not only are there links to purchase the software, but also some information on upgrade pricing and date limitations. Take a look! NEWS: Adobe® Creative Suite® 6 is Now Shipping
The company has also released all CS6 free trials for download and installation. These trials are fully-functional and will work side-by-side with any previous version(s) of the Creative Suite, including CS5 and CS5.5. We’ve got a complete list of trial direct download links for easy access.
The CS6 Student & Teacher Editions are now shipping as well. These offer up to 80% off the regular prices for education customers including students, teachers, and staff.
Today, I got an email from a rep from JourneyEd.com, one of my vendors. Her message states: Adobe has a current promotion with the release of CS6. Adobe is giving a free copy of CS6 to anyone that purchases CS 5.5 now until May 6! Please see attached promotion and contact me today for pricing!
