Can I download Premiere Pro for free?

That’s right, you can download Premiere Pro for free – as a seven-day trial to help you decide whether it’s the right video editing software for you. If you head straight to Adobe, you can get a week-long trial of the full software, including all the latest features and updates. You don’t even have to give any credit card details to download the free trial.

Download Premiere Pro as part of Creative Cloud

If you’d like to download Premiere Pro as part of the Creative Cloud, then you will need to head to the Adobe site and select one of the subscription options. You can either choose to download and subscribe to Premiere Pro alone, or you can choose a plan that includes Adobe’s entire range of Adobe’s creative apps, from Photoshop to Acrobat.

As a standalone app Premiere Pro currently costs $20.99 / £19.97, but you can also add additional apps, such as the audio recording, mixing and restoration app Audition, for an additional fee. Buying single apps may start adding up in cost, and if you’re likely to use more than one of Adobe’s apps, it usually makes sense to get all 20+ apps in the Creative Cloud suite with an All-Apps subscription for US$52.99 / £49.94 per month. That includes Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Premier Pro and more).

There are options for individual users and businesses, and if you’re a student or teacher you save up to 65 per cent on your first year of use if you buy Premiere Pro as part of the full suite. Make sure you keep an eye on our best Adobe deals page to see any special offers as and when they appear.
