Photographers Get Their Wish: A Photoshop/Lightroom Creative Cloud Package

Ever since Adobe announced its new subscription only policy in May one of the most vocal groups has been photographers. Almost immediately, Adobe began to promise to look for solutions for this group. This was met with a large degree of skepticism but it’s now official, as announced at Photoshop World 2013, Adobe has put together a special Creative Cloud package aimed squarely at Photographers.

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

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

Included in this $9.99 per month package is:

  • Photoshop CC
  • Lightroom 5
  • 20 GB of Creative Cloud file storage
  • A Behance Prosite

The only requirement is that you hold a license to Photoshop CS3 or later. Further, the $9.99/month price is not an intro offer. Anyone that signs up prior to December 31 will continue to get this price. Of course, it’s not guaranteed forever but unlike the intro offers for the full Creative Cloud package, this is not limited to the first year.

Finally, I expect some of you will still be unhappy about the subscription model but Creative Cloud is here to stay. At the very least, however, this should prove that Adobe is indeed listening to their customers.

    • The whole point of this offer is to show loyalty to long time Photoshop users who bought licenses and upgrades over the years. While I have no inside info on other plans I would highly doubt this will be extended beyond the current scope.
