We answer our most asked Adobe Creative Cloud questions and put the myths to rest...
Do I have to run CC apps in my web browser?
No. It may be called Creative Cloud, but you aren’t confined to cloud and web-based services. Certain aspects are web-based, like the online training tutorials and the cloud storage, but your core apps still run on your desktop.
Do I need to be constantly connected to the internet?
You will need to be connected to the internet when you install and license your software, but once you’re up and running you don’t need an internet connection. However, you’ll need to make sure you connect your CC-running devices to the internet once per month, just so that Adobe are aware that your membership is still current.
Do I have to buy a complete membership?
If you’re likely to use a range of CC apps then we’d recommend you buy Creative Cloud Complete, but if you know you’ll only need one or two applications, you can purchase single app subscriptions.
Do I have any control over updates?
As a Creative Cloud subscription holder, you’ll have access to all the latest updates as soon as they’re available. But you can download them at your leisure – they won't automatically download. If you’d like greater control over updates, Creative Cloud packager allows you to centrally choose when applications are updated. You can even have access to archived versions of Creative Suite if you need them.
Do I have to use cloud storage?
As part of your subscription you are given 100GB of cloud storage – whether you want to use this is up to you. Your IT departments are able to set access rights for teams using Creative Cloud, so you can decide whether you’d like your users to have access to cloud storage or not.
