Adobe announces new plan - Creative Cloud for photographers

Adobe listened ... thankfully, and changed the pricing plan for Creative Cloud, to match what photographers actually need.



  • yes..only caveat is that you must own CS3 or later....but still great news for most.
  • So that seems a lot better but I still have a few questions. I already have CS6 and I knew it was the last release for purchase however it is more than I need so I was content to use it as long as Adobe kept up with updates which they said they would. LR is still available for purchase and I have V5. Apart from the cloud I was wondering what other advantages I have going this way. I suppose about $70 for LR and $130 upgrades every two years almost pays for itself. I guess being at the mercy of future price hikes is a consideration.

    Since I occasionally review new gear, and my 2nd shooters may use newer gear, I will forever have to upgrade to the latest version. So for me, this is good news.
  • I just chatted with an Adobe rep. Available Sept 17 and is over Dec 31. You just continue to use CS6 and LR5. I always updated since CS2 because you don't get caught with higher pricing later. I believe Adobe promised to keep updating CS6 with camera RAW but who knows for how long. I suppose that is not a bad price to maintain the latest versions of CS and LR.

    He never stopped trying to up sell me to the full CC package for $30 a month.
  • At $120 the first year, the upgrade is very good for photographers. However, I strongly doubt that Adobe will be able to maintain the $9.99/month offer to those who sign up and renew in future years. Market conditions change all the time, and once Adobe has a large number of people signed up and "locked in," Adobe can opt to raise the subscription price.
