Adobe Extends Creative Cloud Photoshop and Lightroom Program to All

In September Adobe announced a special loyalty offer for Photoshop CS3 and later customers. The offer combined Photoshop and Lightroom along with a few other goodies such as online storage and a Behance Pro website for $9.99/month. Many professional photographers jumped on this but it left academic license owners and suite owners feeling left out in the cold.

Along with some other goodies, Adobe has put together a difficult to resist Creative Cloud offering for photographs featuring Lightroom and Photoshop.

Adobe has extended its Photoshop/Lightoom offer to all users from now until 9:00AM PST on December 2.

Many of you spoke loudly and clearly and Adobe has responded by opening this program up to everyone for a very limited time. Beginning today and lasting until December 2, there is no eligibility requirement at all to take advantage of this offer.

Update on December 6. It looks like this offer has been extended to December 31

Nothing else about this offer has changed. This is not an introductory rate. Though there’s no assurance of future price adjustments, unlike the full Creative Cloud program, the price won’t go up after a year. You do have to commit to a one-year contract.

With over a million subscribers and with 25,000 more joining every week, Creative Cloud is not going away. If you’re into photography, even as a rank amateur such as myself, this is an offer you may want to consider. While it wouldn’t shock me to see it extended,  I was very surprised to see it at all.

So, if you were left out of the original offer, will you move on this one?

  1. No I will not. Nor will I recommend this option to my employer. This remains a “Creative Compromise” without a rent-to-own option that doesn’t lock a user into a lifetime rental agreement should they wish to maintain creative control of their work over time.

  2. I don’t quite understand this. So subscribers will be able to renew for the same rate after a year?
