Hello,

Where are pervious versions of Adobe software (Photoshop, Premiere, AE, etc.)?

The oldest I can find is 2021.

Where can I find CC2017 or CC2018? Or CC2015?

Using an old machine and newer versions are obnoxious on it - had it pretty flawless with CC2017 - I upgraded and can't go back.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Adobe now offers the current and ONE older version via the online program manager
.
I do not know how far back this process will go, but try this link
Direct Download Links https://prodesigntools.com/tag/ddl MAY help
-NOTE that you will have to search the site for your specific download
-you MUST do what it says in Note: Very Important Instructions
-https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2015-direct-download-links.html#download-instructions
-the prodesign links go directly to Adobe's file server, so this process will
--only work until Adobe completely removes the old version(s) from the server
.
IF/When you do have a download, be sure to copy it to AT LEAST one external device
-since Adobe does sometimes remove old versions from the server
-a usb flash drive or external hard drive, or write to a DVD

-plus a text file containing your serial number if you have a serial number program

Have you tried any of those links recently?

I keep seeing that link as the answer, but follwing the links to any old CC leads me to the latest update.

So did Adobe remove everything before 2021? Because I will literally scrap the entire suite if they did.
Done paying for Adobe preferences instead of my own.

Talked to someone in India (of course), and they informed me Adobe got rid of everything prior to 2021.

So that's it, folks.

Buy a new computer, or cancel your Adobe subscription.

They un-apologetically don't care about their users - just their money.
In case that wasn't already obvious, this stunt confirms it.
I refuse to believe they can't afford to host the servers for as recent as CC2018 - they just don't want to, and they already have your money.
And to the guy about to defend Adobe and tell me this is natural, your contribution is unnecessary and
unappreciated.

Thanks.

To circle back and simplify - CC 21.0 is as far back as you can go.
That's why links stating otherwise route to the update page - you can select other versions from there, but only as far back as 21.0

This is incorrect. I'm downloading Photoshop CC 2018 and 2019 as I write this, via the ProDesignTools published links. Please note that this is not guaranteed to work at any point in the future.

They can afford the servers. What they can't do is support half a dozen (or more) versions of more than 60 applications at the same time.

 

Think about it this way: if you called Microsoft for tech support on Windows 3.0, would you expect anyone there to know how to help you? Adobe's release cycle is much more frequent than the Windows OS releases. Adobe updates its applications on an 18-month cycle. I'm willing to bet (no actual knowledge) that turnover in customer and technical support is at least that frequent because of promotion or other reasons for departure. The knowledge needed to support older versions is gone.
