An Adobe account is required the first time you start any of the Adobe CC (Creative Cloud) programs licensed with our Academic License. You can use an existing account at your own risk. (There may be mixing/problems with existing own Adobe subscriptions). We recommend the creation of a new (fake)account it is only necessary to provide an email address (no personal information). Exemplarily we show the procedure of starting Photoshop.
>>>> If none of the programs are installed, please start Creative Cloud, then log in as described here and install the required programs. This may take some time and requires a fast internet connection.
Adobe asks you to log in to the Creative Cloud. You choose "Create account" (1).
You enter the requested data (2) and click "Create account" (3).
The start window of Photoshop appears. You choose "Create new" (4).
You enter the parameters of your image file.
Also the other Adobe programs and the access to your Creative Cloud now work with this account.
