Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Signing up for an Adobe ID, part of Adobe Color Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] In order to get the most out of Adobe Color CC you're going to need something called an Adobe ID. This is basically just a username and password that you use to access Adobe applications and services. If you're already a Creative Cloud subscriber, that means you already have an Adobe ID, so what you'll need to do when I take you through all of these different aspects of Adobe Color, like the website and also the mobile app, you'll need to sign in using the same email address and password that you used to access the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop applications. If you're unfamiliar with what I'm talking about right now, then you may not have an Adobe ID.
What you'll need to do is go to Accounts.Adobe.com, which will take you to a page similar to this. Once you're on that page, you can either sign in using your email address and password, or you can get an Adobe ID right here at the bottom. When you sign up for an Adobe ID, they'll need a little bit of information from you, like your first and last name, your email address, your password, where you live in the world, the date of birth, and also whether or not you want to stay informed about Adobe products. You'll then have to enter in an I'm not a robot response where it'll ask you things like, select all the images of waterfalls, and you pick between these two images, hit verify, it's just a way of saying hey, I'm not a robot.
And then you sign up. It's completely free to sign up for an Adobe ID, but if you want to integrate Adobe Color CC with desktop apps like Photoshop and Illustrator, you will need a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud. If you're unsure on how to do that, go to my course Up and Running With Adobe Creative Cloud, which explains that entire process. Hopefully now you've got a better idea of what an Adobe ID is, so as I tell you that you need to use one, or if you open up these applications and it prompts you for one, you know what to do.
