As an Adobe user, you might sometimes need to download one of the app of the Creative Cloud such as Illustrator or InDesign. Or you might just want to try them for 30 days before subscribing to the paid membership.

The old way - Adobe ID, cookies & wasted time

Briefly: you need to create and Adobe ID, connect to the Adobe website, start downloading the Lightroom trial to activate the cookies, stop the download and then copy pas one of the links provided by ProDesignTools.

As you can imagine, this takes a lot of time and is really cumbersome...

Hopefully, we might have an alternative!

The new way - Command line power

The easiest way to download the apps is to simply use the brew version of wget.

So just open the Terminal.app and type:

$ wget --header="Cookie: MM_TRIALS=1" <link to the app>

It will download the file in your Home folder.

To make it easier for you, here are all the links you need:
