Adobe Makes $10 Photoshop CC 2015 Photography Plan Permanent

Get Photoshop CC + Lightroom CC + More for $9.99/Month with the Adobe Photography Plan

Previously available only as a special promotion (on Black Friday), and originally only offered to existing customers who were upgrading from older versions of Photoshop, Adobe has now made permanent a low-cost Photoshop/photography product bundle that anyone worldwide can take advantage of, with no prior purchase or software ownership necessary…

The new Creative Cloud Photography Plan comes with the latest and greatest full desktop releases of both Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC, plus other integrated tools and services. It includes all of the following components for only US$9.99/month with an annual membership (Adobe’s best deal ever on PS):

Get the Latest Releases of Both Photoshop + Lightroom Now with the CC Photography Plan

Adobe has been clear that this is the regular ongoing price for anyone who signs up for this plan.  So if you join now, then if/when you renew in a year’s time, the price will still be $9.99 per month. They do not have plans to change this price.

In other words, this is not an introductory rate, it is the standard price for subscribers.  If you prefer, you also now have the ability to prepay the plan a year in advance, instead of monthly. For the annual prepaid option, it’s US$119.88 per year.

Internationally, the monthly cost is £7.14 GBP, €9.99 EUR, A$9.99 AUD, and ¥980 JPY, and the annual pay-upfront rate is £85.68 GBP, €119.88 EUR, A$119.88 AUD, and ¥11,760 JPY (all prices are exclu­sive of VAT/local taxes).  Wherever you are, you can:

What’s this package worth? Well by comparison, the list price of Photoshop Extended just by itself (quoting CS6 from 2012) is $999 – although many new features have been added since then.  And then Adobe Lightroom 6 (standalone full) sells for $149.  But with the CC plan you also get the Portfolio website, online storage, mobile/web apps, and product training.  Add it all up, and to buy a software bundle like this upfront would cost over US$1,250 for static versions that never improve. That would be a decade of paying just $10 a month instead with this special plan, where here you’ll also receive ongoing support and upgrades to new desktop releases with the latest features!

So if you’d like to have those industry-leading professional imaging tools plus other benefits at a low monthly cost, this is a terrific option.

For students and teachers there’s another way to save – Adobe is offering complete Creative Cloud memberships with all their creative tools and services for up to 70% off to education customers ($19.99 a month in the US), also with no prior software ownership required.

[UPDATE (June 2014) – With Apple now stopping development of Aperture, and Adobe doubling investment in Lightroom, there is only one major player left in this space…]

Want to get started today, for free? You can download the CC 2015 trials which will install and run fully-functional for 30 days (or possibly up to 60 days). Those free trials can then convert to full versions if you decide to sign up. If you don’t wish to continue once the trial is up, simply uninstall the programs.

See Adobe’s official press release about the new plan.

    Many thanks for your reply regarding the creative cloud membership and prepaid codes. Applying the code worked exactly as you said, subscription extended by one year. Thank you for the tip about stacking prepaid codes in advance too.

    Many thanks,

    Concerning the Photography plan. How does it work? Are the programs downloaded on my computer? Or does it just work on the creative cloud? If it’s on the cloud, then are the images stored on my computer? Thanks for your help

    How does the new Photoshop pricing compare to the old Photoshop pricing? Has anybody done the math?

    • OK sure Jason, here’s the quick math – and compared on an apples-to-apples basis…

      Suppose that someone already has standalone licenses for Photoshop CS5 Extended and Lightroom 5, the total price of which was $1,148 ($999 + $149) – and now they are considering upgrading their tools… That upgrade would cost $349 for Photoshop (to CS6 Extended) and $79 for Lightroom (to LR6), which is $428 all together.

      So just a single upgrade (a one-time jump) costs more than 3½ years of the CC Photography Plan at $9.99/month – which by contrast always gives you access to the latest releases throughout (both Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC, which are significantly better and newer than CS6 and LR6).

      And the $1,148 initial cost of entry mentioned above (for static versions of the tools) is equivalent to over 9½ years of the Photography Plan. Nearly a decade!

      But of course most people out there don’t have an upgradeable version of Photoshop and couldn’t afford $1,000 to buy one, so were locked out of even using it due to prohibitive cost.

      So the reason this is the best deal ever on Photoshop is because most folks could not afford it previously, and it has never before been possible to pay just $10 to be able to run the world’s best image editing tools.

    I will be using Photoshop for illustration and might be beneficial to have other adobe software like dream weaver and flash etc for making a website. Can I get this subscribing paying monthly with creative cloud? it would be so beneficial for me as i can’t afford right now to pay the software upfront
