Often we have seen a lot of our community users inquire about the file size of the Creative Cloud apps or how long do they take to download. 

Our help article shared below shares all the details about the size and time taken by the apps to download for both Mac and Windows.

Let us know if you need any other information regarding the link shared above. 

 

Thanks

Hi

I would like to know the sizes of any download from CC.

I have a capped subscription for the Internet and therefore I simply need to know what I can download when, and for that I need to know the file size.

Should be quite easy to give that vital information together with the description in the CC app.

Or is the filesize already hidden somewhere?

Thank you

Hi there

Wow! Just about an instant and very comprehensive answer. Thank you very much!

Unfortunately I was not quite clear.

I have downloaded all the apps I need already. There are updates and revisions quite frequently and it is the sizes for those that I would like to know. Even the CC Updater gets updated quite frequently, but I think this one is quite small.

Any ideas on those?

With CC, the workflow for software download and install is silent which may be resulting in confusion.

When you go to CC desktop apps and intiate a software installation like Photoshop then the setup files gets downloaded on your computer and the installation starts. Once the installation is complete, the downloaded files are automatically deleted  to clear up your disk space,

So, there is no downloaded files which remains on your computer once the update/installation is complete.

Installation is different concept wherein the software is installed on you computer for usage.

It seems we are talking past each other at the moment.

To give you a real life example.

I opened the CC Download manager this morning. There I could see there was an update for PS. 14.1.2 to be correct. Just a little one it said.

How little is little??? I want and need to know!

I would like to know how much data flows through my account in order to download "x". The amount of data required altogether (whether later deleted or not) could be stated in the CC download app in order for a user to find out before downloading how much data will be downloaded.

Like there is a lot of room here for a little bit of information. Like: 235MB for example. That is all and that would be so helpful for some of us.

Clear?

Hmmmm...

This advice could have been good.

Sadly the link given is totally outdated and doesn't even mention anything of CC!!

What now?

Shouldn't this "requested" information be included as a matter of common courtesy?

Has this question actually been answered?

I also would like to know the size of my files residing on the cloud.  It is not obvious to me how to do this.  For ex., right clicking on them doesn't work.

Thanks.

Update:  Actually, sizes are listed beside the name of the files.

Sorry.

@rmartin215 - In the browser from the Files page at https://creative.adobe.com/files click on the View button and switch from the default Mosaic to List. You can then see the file size and even sort by file size.

Hi Gerd,

The data that Manish posted was pulled from the Adobe CC direct links page, which includes the file sizes for all the latest Creative Cloud apps (the  base release downloads)...

If you're also interested in the sizes and release dates for all of the CC updates to date (and going forward), then you'll find them here for all apps:

The Adobe CC Updates: Direct Download Links for Windows

The Adobe CC Updates: Direct Download Links for Mac OS

Hope that helps, and is comprehensive to what you wanted to know!

thanks to ProDesignTools!


your posted links helped a lot, as I also wanted to know the update sizes before starting the download.

after all, this feature shouldn't be too complicated to integrate to the CC desktop app?!

so, adobe, please add this request to your client's whishlist!

Hi GGM,

Some original CC 2017 direct links are available – but not the patches/updates (yet)... Adobe is still working on those and we hope to have them very soon.

Hi Wanderer,

Manish's table is for CC 2013 from two years ago, and two major releases behind CC 2015.

If you want the installer file sizes for all the downloads for the latest Creative Cloud versions (including Lightroom), then see the post just above yours.
