Student Focused IT Helpdesk WebPages

Adobe Creative Cloud

Students, Faculty & Staff using a MCC computer with the latest version of the Adobe Cloud Applications loaded on it will be required to create an Adobe Cloud Account and log in to it whenever they use any aspect of the Adobe Cloud Suite (including viewing PDF files). This is a requirement of Adobe, not a new requirement of MCC or CCSNH.

The Adobe Cloud Applications include: Illustrator, Lightroom, Professional, PhotoShop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Animate, Audition and a few others.

Note: If the computer only has the Adobe PDF Viewer application installed on it, signing in to an Adobe Cloud Account will not be required.
