Introduction to Creative Cloud
No, the desktop applications in Creative Cloud, such as Photoshop and Illustrator, are installed directly on your computer. So, you don’t need an ongoing Internet connection to use them. An Internet connection is required the first time you install and license your apps. But, you can use the apps in offline mode with a valid software license. The desktop apps attempt to validate your software licenses every 30 days. Annual members can use the apps for up to 99 days in offline mode. Month-to-month members can use the software for up to 30 days in offline mode.
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 apps.
Creative Cloud for teams gives you access to the complete set of Adobe creative apps plus exclusive features designed to help your team get work done. You get a web-based Admin Console that makes it easy to manage licenses, advanced 24/7 tech support, and 1:1 Expert Services sessions.
