We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I was searching for clip art of a black fist and white fist bumping and saw that they had it on Adobe's site Adobe Stock Images.
When I went to it, it says I need to subscribe to the Cloud apps. I own the software. I bought it for my class on web design in school. I have the actual disc to install the program. So I have no use for a monthly subscription for apps when I already won all the software. I just want to figure out how to get access to the clipart and templates etc.
I tried signing in with the email I purchased it under and it said there was no account. I signed on this account aand again it says something about the trial. I already own the programs, they are already installed. So I dont need the cloud apps.
I am just looking for the clip art and templates.
Do I need a subscription for acess to the clip art and templates??
own* the software
Stock subscription and the all apps subscription are separate. To access stock, you need a stock subscription or you need to buy credit packs. You do not need even to have any Adobe program at your disposal. However, vector assets very often require a later version of Illustrator than CS6.
Without a subscription, you may access tge free collection. For that, you only need an Adobe ID.
Warning: don't install Creative Cloud, not even for a trial. This will take over your CS6 license, and it will stop working when your trial ends !!!
Also, expect your perpectual software to stop running sometime soon because Apple or Microsoft will change the system and it will no longer run. Plan for subscriptions.
With Apple sooner than later, so be very careful when updating the OS. Changing to a different machine can get tricky.
The biggest problem with old software is that installation may fail on new systems. Mostly, however, for Windows systems, installed software runs quite happily also on newer or updated OS versions. But there is never a guarantee...
