Cs1,2,3 no longer can be installed to use since the activation server was switched off. No legal downloads for 4-6 exist unless you are a registered user, in which case support might help.

Is there an only way to find it? or should I contact Adobe?

You should contact Adobe, if you have a registered serial for an old Creative Suite 4-6, to get your software. They will not give it to you otherwise, and it is difficult to get anyway, people report.

NOTE - CS3 and earlier are COMPLETELY gone from the Adobe file server
.
The process below USED to work (until April 14) if you bought a download direct from Adobe... an employee is trying to find out why this process no longer works, so IF you bought a download direct from Adobe, check back every day to see if the process starts working again
.
For CS6 back to CS4 you may download ONLY if you bought direct from Adobe via download
-Log-in to your account and click this link https://account.adobe.com/products
--click Order history on the left and then the link to your order that will show on the right
--and finally click the link "Downloads and serial numbers" that will appear
--as always, write the serial number in a text file AND copy that text file and the
---download file(s) to an external drive (or two) to be sure you have what you need
-if you did not buy direct from Adobe via download you must find your original install
--if you have an Education or volume license you MUST use your original media
--the link for an Education or volume license download is not available at all
-if you bought a disc and don't have a drive you will need to buy an external USB drive
-if you bought a download from a 3rd party vendor you will need to contact that vendor

Thanks, even though that Downloading the CS2 Collection could be used on the Wayback Machine, but CS3, CS4, CS5, and CS6 are no longer used

Creative Suite is no longer sold, supported or maintained.

 

As stated above, CS1, CS2 and CS3 are dead and gone forever.  Even if you find an installer from disk or download, there is no possible way to activate it as those servers were taken offline years ago.

 

CS4, CS5 and CS6 can be activated providing you have the following:

1. the original installers from disk or download that you received at purchase,

2. a legitimate serial number for your product, version and platform (Win/Mac).

3. a compatible operating system that can support legacy Creative Suite products.

 

Creative Suite installers do not work on Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave without TERMINAL workarounds.  Creative Suite does not work at all on Catalina.

MODERN OPTIONS:
Photoshop or Premier Elements 2020 (approx $100, no subscription needed)
https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-elements.html

Creative Cloud Photography Plan (approx $10/month for 1 year subscription)
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography.html

Creative Cloud All Apps Plan (31 + apps & services)
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html

 

===========
Beware of fake Adobe reps who may contact you privately offering to sell you software or take control of your computer. It's a scam, run away!

Just to make it perfectly clear, if you didn't understand it from what has already been said: If you do not already own one of those packages, there is no legal way for you to obtain it.

 

If someone contacts you privately via email or by private messaging and claims to be able to provide the software, do not believe them. They are scammers. At best you will be out some money; at worst, your computer could be held hostage or your identity stolen.

 

Be especially wary of anyone using "Adobe Cares", or "<name> at Adobe" as part of their username, or anyone asking to Skype with you, or anyone using "@ outlook. com" as part of their email address. If someone does contact you, use the Report button so that real Adobe employees can ban the scammer.
