Adobe Creative Cloud for Office and Home Use
There has been a change to Adobe creative product installations from license keys
to named users via the Adobe Creative Cloud for Enterprise. This will require you
to login with your organization credentials, including username and password, (Example
– userID@gulfcoast.edu \ password) to access, download and install Creative Cloud
applications. You are allowed a work and home use installation. Home use is now included
for free with our enterprise agreement.
The applications are installed and run on your desktop, just like any other desktop application. The first time you download any of the individual creative apps, you automatically download Creative Cloud for your desktop. You use the Creative Cloud desktop app to access, download, and update any of the individual creative applications.
