1. you can install the latest and 1 version prior versions using the cc desktop app. you must have a subscription because previous versions are not available with trials. other versions are revealed after clicking file preferences>apps>tick show older apps (at panel bottom).

2. for versions cc 2019 and older, use prodesigntools.com*.

3. for versions newer than cc 2019 but older than one previous version, contact adobe support for links**.

---------------------------------------------------------------
* most (but not all) adobe download links are available from prodesigntools.com. https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-direct-download-links.html

follow the directions (esp, step 1)

save the install file. it may not remain online.

thank jim @ prodesigntools.com
-------------------------------------------------------------

** this support is currently not available. ie, there's a significant gap (between 2019 and last year) in the available previous versions.

opposition to this decision (to limit available previous versions) has been conveyed to adobe officials who are therefore aware of the problems caused by this policy. however, unless/until changes are made, nothing can be done to legally access these files.

no, but you won't be able to use anything you download unless you have a license, subscription or trial and you'll need to be signed into adobe.com per the instructions.

creative cloud is adobe's term for several different things.  but of particular interest to you, it's the name of adobe's suite of apps (eg, photoshop, lightroom, premiere pro, acrobat, animate, auditon etc) since adobe started it's subscription model. 

 

previous to the start of adobe subscriptions, adobe named its apps creative suite, creative suite 2, creative suite 3..., creative suite 6 (the perpetually licensed apps).  (and previous to creative suite is ancient history and irrelevent.)

 

so yes, there are creative cloud premiere versions. 

 

do you own any creative suite licenses?  do you have a current subscription?

 

if the answer is no to both, you cannot use any adobe software beyond the trial period.

Thank you!

I didn't want to start a subscription if my computer couldn't support the program.

you can use the older versions of adobe's subscription apps.  if you're unable to use the specs link i posted, and you want, i'll check the app versions you can use with catalina.

You may be out of luck, a lot of the direct download links that are referenced on Prodesigntools are now gone.

And unless you are using OpenCore, Catalina can't be installed on a 2011 iMac. Those are limited to High Sierra. I DO NOT recommend using OpenCore because you run into problems like some hardware features not working and problems with updates.

At this point, especially for video editing, forget the old Intel machine. Sell it and buy an Apple Silicon computer (M1/M2/M3.) Those are all fully supported by Apple and Adobe and will run FCP and Premiere Pro nicely.

Apple started with processor chips from Motorola (back in the 1970's) then used processors from IBM, then Intel, and now they use their own designs. ALL of Apple's current models are Apple Silicon. They are collectively much faster than the older moidels, more power-efficient, run cooler, and are fully supported by Apple where the older computers are falling out of support.

Can you go to About This Mac in the Apple menu and post a screenshot for us?

No, I'm trying to find out specifically which model you have. That graphics card shipped on 2011 models but they cannot run Catalina except with a third-party hack that will give you problems trying to run Adobe software.
