Adobe Creative Cloud Install Instructions

Follow the instructions below to download & install the Adobe Creative Cloud application which will allow you to choose which application(s) from the Adobe Creative Cloud suite that you'd like to install on your machine, such as Acrobat Professional or Photoshop. If the application you want to use is already installed on your machine, scroll down to the next section to learn how to sign in and start using it.

If your work computer is managed by OIT and the software isn't installed, follow the instructions on our BigFix Self-Service Portal page to learn how to request the "Adobe Manager" application to be pushed to your machine. This will install the Adobe Creative Cloud app which will then allow you to choose which Creative Cloud app you want installed. There's a separate option in the BigFix portal to just install Acrobat Professional.

1) Visit https://creativecloud.adobe.com and enter your UCI email address in the format UCInetID@uci.edu and then select Continue. NOTE: Do not click the other buttons to sign in with a 'social login' such as Google or Apple. Also, do not enter your my.name@uci.edu as it will not work.

2) When prompted, select "Company or School Account".

3) You will then be taken to the UCI Webauth page. Enter you UCInetID and password to continue.

4) On the right under the "Quick Links" heading, select Install Creative Cloud app.

5) The Creative Cloud setup file will download. Double-click to run it and follow the prompts to install the Adobe Creative Cloud app.

NOTE: The sole purpose of the Adobe Creative Cloud application is to select which Creative Cloud apps you want to install on your machine, such as Acrobat Pro, Photoshop, etc. In the future whenever you want to install additional applications from the Creative Cloud suite, just search for this application's name (under the Start Menu on PCs and under the /Applications folder on Macs) and run it again.

The application is already installed on my machine

If you already have the Adobe product installed, open the application and follow these steps instead.

  1. Select the Sign In link in the top right.
    • NOTE: If you don't see the Sign In link, contact your local IT support because it's possible you have a trial or incorrect version of the software installed. They will need to help you install the correct version.
  2. Enter your UCI email address in the format UCInetID@uci.edu and then select Continue. NOTE: Do not click the other buttons to sign in with a 'social login' such as Google or Apple. Also, do not enter your my.name@uci.edu as it will not work.
  3. When prompted, select "Company or School Account".
  4. You will then be taken to the UCI Webauth page. Enter you UCInetID and password to continue.

That's it! You should now be able to use the application.
