How do I login to Adobe Software?

Certain Adobe products are pre-installed on most computers within the district and may require users to sign in to authorize it's use.  If you would like any of the Adobe Software Products installed on your machine, please put in a Support Center Request and your building Tech Support Specialist will arrange to install the products you need.

Current available Adobe Products are:
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe Lightroom
  • Adobe After Effects
  • Adobe Dreamweaver
  • Adobe Audition
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe Acrobat DC Pro

If you would like to use Adobe Products at home, follow this knowledge base how to do so:  How do I download Adobe Creative Cloud apps at home?

Logon to Adobe (First Launch Only)


  1. Open any Adobe product  (ie. Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)
  2. You'll recieve a "Sign In Required" prompt

  3. Click Sign In Now
  4. On the next screen click, Sign in with an Enterprise ID

  5. Enter your E-mail, @ipsd.org OR @k12.ipsd.org
  6. As soon as you move to the password field, an auto logon is triggered. The windows will blink a few times and you might notice a Microsoft page briefly (you may be asked for your email address again). This is all normal.

    • If this process fails, it may be because you are logged on the computer with a username that doesn’t match your email address (mascot or sub account). Please logoff the computer and back on as yourself.  Optionally you can type in your email password to continue.

If you authorize multiple computers


Our license agreement with Adobe allows for users to be logged into an Adobe product on 2 computers concurrently.  If you try to log in on a 3rd computer,  you may see a message asking you to log off of one or more other previously logged in computers.  This will de-authorize the Adobe software for you on the chosen machine(s) but does not affect other users of that machine; in the case of a lab computer.
