Install Adobe apps on your Mac using the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop application

Please Note: This article applies to faculty and staff only. Before using the application, you must request access to either the Acrobat Pro DC application (formerly known as Adobe Acrobat Professional, which is used to generate and modify PDF files) or the Creative Cloud Suite (if you need access to one or more of the Creative Cloud applications such as Photoshop). Access can be requested by opening an Adobe Portal Access ticket.
