Adobe Creative Cloud: Enterprise Sign In

Adobe Logo

In order to provide the best possible software solutions for our students and staff, District Technology Services (DTS) is working with Adobe to improve how users acquire and access Adobe products.

Some examples of Adobe programs are Photoshop, Lightroom, InDesign, Illustrator and Acrobat DC.  (Please note that Acrobat DC Reader is a FREE program that is not impacted by any licensing.)

With our current model there are now two parts needed to use the various Adobe products:  Acquiring the software and Activating the software.

Acquiring Adobe Software:

If an Adobe program is already installed then it can remain installed on the computer.  To install new Adobe software or update existing Adobe software on an individual computer, please use Adobe Creative Cloud.

Adobe CC App

To request installation for entire labs or computer carts, please fill out a work order request.

Note: Even if the software is downloaded, each user will require an activate Adobe Creative Cloud Enterprise Account in order to use the software.

Activating Adobe Software:

In order to maximize access to the Adobe Creative Cloud and minimize licensing costs, DTS has identified the most likely users (both student and staff) of Adobe software.  Most users will simply need to launch any Adobe program, such as Photoshop, and log in when prompted. This will activate the software for a given user account on a computer.  Please note: This will have to be done for each computer used for a given user account.

Below are the steps needed to log in and activate the software.

  1. Open the Adobe Creative Cloud application in the upper right corner of the Finder or in the Application folder
  2. In the new Adobe Creative Cloud window select Continue with Google or type in your full St. Vrain Valley School District (SVVSD) email address, then select Continue

If an Access Denied error is displayed, then the user needs to have an Adobe Creative Cloud license activated to use the software.  Follow the instructions above to request a license for Adobe Creative Cloud.

Adobe Access Denied

If a Limit Reached error occurs, the Adobe Creative Cloud account used to sign in is already registered on two other computers.  Each Adobe Creative Cloud license can sign in to two computers at a time.  Once that limit is reached the other computers must be signed out before signing into another.  To do so, simply select the option labeled Sign me out of the other computers so I can sign in here, then select Continue.
