New Photoshop Photography Program: Ps + Lr + More = $10 a Month
[UPDATE (Dec. 2013) – Adobe has opened up this offer for all customers, so it's now available to everyone worldwide with no prior product or upgrade necessary!]
“Photographers and photo-enthusiasts are looking for a more tailored Creative Cloud offering that focuses on their particular needs… We are looking at potential CC bundles to recognize this.”
Since introducing Photoshop CC we’ve listened to feedback from a spectrum of our customers, from advanced pros to casual enthusiasts. One common request was a solution specifically tailored for photographers. We listened and are announcing a special offer for our loyal Photoshop customers. Beginning today, customers who own Photoshop CS3 or higher are eligible for a special Creative Cloud membership offer that includes all of the following for just $9.99/month (pricing varies outside the US):
- Photoshop CC with Bridge CC and Adobe Camera Raw (ACR)
- Lightroom 5
- 20 GB of online storage
- Behance ProSite for building a beautiful online portfolio site (normally $100/year)
- Access to over 200 exclusive online video tutorials in Learn Creative Cloud
- Continuing upgrades & updates for all included applications and services
This is the ongoing price for anyone who signs up by December 31, 2013. So if you sign up in November 2013, then when you renew in November 2014, the price will still be $9.99 per month. We do not currently have any intention of raising this price.
Note this is not an introductory price, it is the standard price for customers who sign up by December 31, 2013. Internationally, the monthly cost is £7.14 GBP, €9.99 EUR, A$9.99 AUD, and ¥1,000 JPY (all prices are exclusive of VAT/local taxes). Meanwhile, customers who already have a CC single-app membership for Photoshop at the $9.99/month level (or corresponding local pricing above) will be automatically transitioned to this new plan when it ships, with the additional benefits and lower ongoing price.
So now if you’d like to move up to the latest & greatest tools plus other benefits at a low monthly cost, it’s become a fantastic deal… And if you want to take a step up farther and get the complete Creative Cloud including all 15 of the new CC tools, then existing CS customers can also get upgrade pricing there too for $29.99 a month.
While the company is continuing to offer last year’s CS6, at the same time they are now attracting 80% of purchasing customers to using more of their tools in the Creative Cloud. The Cloud has gained millions of users already and receives nearly 5-star reviews from customers, and so the company is now putting all of their resources into it – with new tools, added services, and included upgrades.
For students and teachers there’s also a great savings – Adobe is offering complete Creative Cloud memberships for 60% off to education customers ($19.99 a month in the US), with no previous software ownership required.
Existing volume licensing customers also get a first-year discount of $20 per month with the new Creative Cloud for Teams.
And if you don’t qualify for this Photographer’s Bundle offer then you can still get Photoshop CC (or any other CC app) for US$19.99 a month with a Single-Tool Subscription.
