Try Adobe's offer: Photoshop 7-days for free!


Adobe is running a deal right now on its latest version of Photoshop that allows you to download it and use it for FREE for 7-days! It's a great way to test it out before committing to purchasing it. Toward the end of the free trial week, you then have the option to buy a Creative Cloud membership (The only way to get Photoshop is through buying Creative Cloud). Of course, you don't have to buy it at the end of the week and return later if you decide you do want it.

Here are a few things to note:

  • The downloaded Photoshop will work with either Mac or Windows.

  • Students and teachers receive 66% off the purchase price.

  • You can only get Photoshop as part of a Creative Cloud membership.

  • This free trial offer is available only for desktop, not the mobile app.

  • CC memberships start at $9.99 a month and go up to $82.98 a month. There are several purchase options: a single app plan, which will give you just Photoshop CC; or a plan that includes more of Adobe’s creative apps. (More on this at the end of this post.)
