Introducing Creative Cloud for Photographers!

Skill level

Photographers rejoice! When Adobe announced Photoshop CC and the changes to the Creative Cloud, the reaction was pretty split. Some loved the idea, while many threatened to jump ship. Amongst those who were hesitant about this change, were photographers who primarily use Photoshop and Lightroom. Adobe hinted that change is coming, and today during the Photoshop World keynote, they delivered!

Before today, photographers had a few options, many of which they weren’t too please with.

– The full Creative Cloud package: $19.99/month for CS6 users, $29.99/month for CS3+ users, or $49.99/month for new users. These prices were introductory offers which would increase to the $49.99 price point after the first year.

– Subscribe to only Photoshop CC for $9.99/month for CS3+ users or $19.99/month for new users. Again, this was an introductory price, and does not include Lightroom.

– Purchase Lightroom as a standalone application for $79 (upgrade) or $149 (full).

Photographers who use Photoshop and Lightroom would either have to subscribe to the full Creative Cloud, or subscribe to just Photoshop and purchase Lightroom separately.

Change is Here!

During the Photoshop World keynote today, Adobe delivered what photographers have been asking for. Customers who have a CS3+ application will be able to subscribe to a photographer specific Creative Cloud package for $9.99/month, which includes the following:

  • Photoshop CC
  • Lightroom 5
  • 20 GB of online storage
  • Behance ProSite
  • Access to Creative Cloud Learn’s training resources
  • Ongoing upgrades and updates

This isn’t just giving you access to Photoshop and Lightroom. You also get the online storage, Behance ProSite, training, and the ongoing updates! Best of all, the $9.99 price is not an introductory offer! If you sign up before the end of the year, that is your price going forward.

    Still sucks, because the moment you can’t pay is the same moment that all your previous work turns to dust.

    OK, so we get the message, they will never change the subscription licensing model, for all those of us that do not want to buy into it, so why not sell just ACR and bridge as a seperate tool and let us pay for upgrades when we need them, we’ll all be happy then.

    Does anyone have a link where one can go sign up for this?

    I am currently paying the $19.99 per month for Photoshop CC only (I have Photoshop CS6) so what is “The full Creative Cloud package: $19.99/month for CS6 users”? I wonder how I get this for the $9.99 instead of $19.99?
