Adobe ID for students

Adobe Creative Cloud is available in some PCC classrooms for students enrolled in some CAS classes.

When you open an Adobe application, such as Photoshop, you will see a prompt to enter your Adobe ID.

I have an Adobe ID: If you already have one, you can use it
I don’t have an Adobe ID: Click the link to “Get an Adobe ID”.  Do not use your PCC email address and password.

This Adobe ID will give you access to Adobe Creative Cloud Applications when you are using computers in your classroom or at PCC computer resource centers.    It won’t work from other classrooms or home, unless you have a personal Adobe subscription.
