Complete a Hands-on Tutorial

Adobe offers two types of guided tutorials. Hands-on tutorials guide you step-by-step directly in the app. If you prefer to learn at your own pace, tutorial articles provide you with sample files to follow along as you read. 

  1. Select the application you would like to learn on the Creative Cloud Learn page.
  2. Browse the available tutorials for the selected application. Find a hands-on tutorial you wish to follow and click the Begin tutorial button.

  3. You will be prompted to open an Adobe application installer to get started. The latest version of the application supported by your OS will be installed on your computer. If you already have the latest version installed, the application will open with the tutorial sample files.
  4. When the sample files open in the application, the Discover window will open. Click Start Tutorial.

  5. As you move through the tutorial, each step will be explained in the Discover window. Additionally, a blue box will appear for each task near the required tool, menu, or window with more information. When you complete a step, click Next in the Discover window to move on to advance through the tutorial.
