    Looking for direct download links for Creative Suite trial versions?

    Jeff A Wright Adobe Employee

      Trial versions of Adobe Creative Suite, Photoshop Elements, and Adobe Premiere Elements are downloaded using the Adobe Download Assistant — a small application that is meant to improve download reliability and avoid issues that commonly occur during large downloads, such as frequent disconnects.


      What do we mean by "large downloads"? Photoshop CS5 and Photoshop Elements, for example, are each over 1.1 GB. The approximate download times for files this size are:

      • On a cable connection (3 mbps): 50 minutes.

      • On a DSL connection (1.5 mbps): 1 hrs. 39 minutes.


      The Adobe Download Assistant helps most people manage the download of these large files, for example by enabling pause/resume of the downloads, and checking to ensure the complete file(s) are downloaded before actual installation begins.


      While we strongly recommend you first attempt to download trial versions using the Adobe Download Assistant, we also realize that some people just prefer to manage their own downloads directly, using a web browser. For those of you who do, please follow the instructions carefully here.


      Update 5/5/13: Please utilize the Photoshop Elements page at http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=photoshop_elements&loc=us to set the trial cookie to allow the links offered at http://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cs6-direct-download-links.html to function successfully.


      Update 5/17/13: The Prodesigntools site - http://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cs6-direct-download-links.html has been updated.  Please follow the Very Important Instructions section to complete the download process.
