Adobe Creative Suite Login

Any time you use any of the Adobe Creative Suite applications, such as Photoshop, Premier, Lightroom, etc., you will need to sign in with either an Adobe ID (for students) or an Adobe Enterprise ID (for faculty/staff). This log-in will be different than your HWS credentials. You will need to sign in to Adobe every time you launch an Adobe program, and every 90 minutes thereafter, on your own computer and on a public lab computer. Save your work often: if you are signed out, and you close the application, you may lose your work

Faculty or Staff: If you have not previously been assigned an Adobe Enterprise ID by IT Services or you are unsure if you have an Adobe contact the IT Services Help Desk. Once you have been assigned an Adobe Enterprise ID, you will receive an e-mail from Adobe prompting you to create a password. Once you have created a password for your account, please follow the instructions below to sign-in to the Adobe Creative Suite.

Students: You can create an Adobe ID for free on your own; see instructions below. It is recommended you use your HWS e-mail but you can also use other methods to sign in like Facebook or Google.

1. Open an Adobe product, and you will be prompted to log in with an Adobe ID

2. Enter your Adobe Enterprise ID (Faculty/Staff) or Adobe ID (Students)
