How to download Premiere Pro for free

You can download Premiere Pro for free, and trial it out for seven days to find out if you like it or not. Premiere Pro is a paid-for video editing program, but if you go direct to Adobe, you can get the week-long version that will give you full access to the incredibly powerful software. That includes all the latest features and updates, and it won't mean having to give your credit card details in the first instance. 

We have to stress that downloading any Adobe software in any other way is illegal, and not a good idea – not only is it piracy, but you're opening up yourself to potential viruses and malware.

Download Premiere Pro as part of Creative Cloud

To buy Premiere Pro, you'll need to head over to the Adobe site and chose from one of the options that they offer. You can choose a single app plan, which will give you Premiere Pro alone, or you can chose a plan that includes more of Adobe's creative apps. 

You can currently buy Premiere Pro as a standalone app for under £20 a month, but you can add additional apps, such as the audio recording, mixing and restoration app Audition, for an additional fee. Buying single apps may start adding up, so some users might think it best to get all 20+ apps in the creative suite for just under £50 (that includes Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Premier Pro and more).

There are options for individual users, businesses, and if you’re a student or teacher you save up to 65% off the first year of use if you buy Premiere Pro as part of the full suite (also keep an eye on our Adobe Creative Cloud discount page).
