Adobe is a software development company most known for their multimedia software products and Flash Player. The commonly deployed Adobe product at UMIACS is the Creative Cloud Suite which contains products such as Acrobat, Photoshop, and more.
Installation and Licensing
Please note that UMD's license only allows for two concurrent logons (on two computing devices) to use any Creative Cloud product. If you are already logged onto two devices and try to log on a third, it will prompt you to confirm that you are OK with being signed out of one or more of the other devices in order to use Creative Cloud products on that new device.
UMIACS-supported desktop machines
Please contact staff if you would like one or more Creative Cloud products installed on a supported Windows or macOS desktop machine. Staff will install the Creative Cloud desktop app and the applications that you want.
You will still need to sign in with your UMD account to use the apps the same as how you have to for laptops or other personal machines by following the steps here.
All other machines
Creative Cloud products can be installed on laptops or personal machines following the instructions provided by UMD on Terpware for Windows or macOS. Faculty and staff should choose the Faculty and Staff Enterprise for Individuals option.
You will be prompted to sign in when using any Creative Cloud product installed this way. Licensing is handled through your UMD account. Instructions for signing in can be found here.
