Q: What is the benefit of Adobe Creative Cloud for Teams?
A: Adobe Creative Cloud for Teams provides your team with Adobe Creative apps for desktop and mobile devices while simplifying license management, budgeting and compliance. Licenses are tied to the company instead of individual users, making it easy to reassign licenses when your business needs change. Plus, with an annual membership, you can budget more predictably, take advantage of volume discounts and set your own renewal date to align with your buying cycle.

Q: Can I install Adobe Creative Cloud on multiple computers and devices?
A: Yes. You can download and install Creative Cloud desktop applications on multiple computers across multiple operating systems. However, activation is limited to two machines per individual associated with the membership. You cannot use the software on both devices simultaneously.

Q: If I have a perpetual-licensed Adobe Creative Suite product on my computer, will installing Creative Cloud affect it?
A: No, your existing Creative Suite installation will not be affected when you install any Creative Cloud applications. For example, you can install and use Photoshop Creative Cloud on the same device where Photoshop CS6 is already installed, with no ill effects to either program.
