Adobe Is Giving Students Free Home Creative Cloud Access
Adobe is helping students who are stuck at home because of the Covid-19 outbreak with free, temporary remote access to Creative Cloud apps like Photoshop and InDesign. In order to get access to the apps your school or college needs to be an education customer and the temporary licenses will only be available until May 2020. But it's a potential lifeline for those who need to continue their Adobe-reliant studies or coursework outside of their school or campus. Click here for more information.
