Updated February 25th, 2015: Ever since Adobe introduced CC and announced that there will not be a CS7 release, they have made it extremely difficult to figure out how to buy Photoshop CS6 from Adobe.com, let alone how to find any of the CS6 trial links. Well, fortunately you can still both download the trial and buy it at Adobe.com.
Besides going through the standard trial download, you can also use the below direct download links to avoid installing Akamai Download Manager (which has been known to cause issues for many users). You’ll need to follow these steps to exactly how it’s stated below otherwise it will not work and you will receive an error message:
- Step 1: You’ll need to be signed in to your Adobe.com account. If you don’t have one, it’s free and takes about 30 seconds to sign up (an email address and name is required to get started). The email you provide will not be verified so you can use a fake one if you wish to avoid future email marketing spam from Adobe.
- Step 2: Once you a logged in, visit this link (it will open in a new window) and leave the page open during the duration of the download process as it will keep you logged into your account in the next steps. Click on the “download now” button, and then when it asks you to save the file, choose cancel the download so that you will not install the Adobe Download Assistant (it’s not needed and we do not recommend installing it on your computer).
- Step 3: Use the links below to download the Photoshop version that you wish to try.
- Step 4: Once downloaded, open the file to start the installation process.
If you have any issues or can not access the files, then leave your questions below and we’ll try to help!
