Adobe Creative Cloud
On January 31, 2021, the Adobe Creative Cloud application must be used to use licensed Adobe applications (for example: Adobe Acrobat DC, Adobe Photoshop, etc.). This applies to Windows computers within Nikhef, but also to Windows and Apple laptops delivered by CT.
To use Adobe Creative Cloud you need to be registered with Adobe with your Nikhef email address. To register, you can send an email to helpdesk-at-nikhef.nl after which we process the request.
On this page you find short descriptions how you can install Adobe-applications for Windows and macOS using the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app.
Note: You can use your Adobe-apps with an individual Creative Cloud license Install on more than one computer and activate them (log in to them) on two computers, but you can only use them on one computer at a time.
Adobe Creative Cloud may already be installed on your Windows Nikhef-computer. If this is not the case, please provide the name of your computer in your email so we can install it remotely without bothering you.
If you have a Windows Nikhef-computer in self management, you can find the installation file here: https://creativecloud.adobe.com/apps/download/creative-cloud and install it yourself.
