Learn About Adobe's New Photographer's Package! Photoshop CC + Lightroom + More for $9.99 a Month

Adobe has been hinting at introducing a new “photographer’s offering” in Creative Cloud since the launch of the all-new CC release in May:

“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.”

So now, an incredible new package called the Photoshop Photography Program was just announced by Adobe at the Photoshop World conference today:

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, all 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 (available worldwide; pricing varies outside the US):

This is the ongoing price for anyone who signs up by June 30, 2014. So if you sign up now, then when you renew next year, the price will still be $9.99 per month. We do not currently have any intention of raising this price.

= BREAKING NEWS =

We’re coming to you today direct from the MAX Conference, where Adobe has just made a blockbuster announcement.

The next generation of Creative Suite products – sometimes referred to as CS7 or CS-Next – will actually be called “CC” (as in “Photoshop CC“) and from here on out will be available exclusively through the Creative Cloud.  So there will not be a line called “Creative Suite 7.”

April 19th, 2013 10 comments

[UPDATE (May 6th) – The next release is announced! Learn more about new Adobe CC.]

Normally in the weeks before a new version of Creative Suite comes out, we don’t have a very concrete idea of what will be in it…

Learn what’s coming next from Adobe...

However this year – thanks to the early upgrades already out for Creative Cloud members, some telling blog posts, several “first look” videos, and a “major reveal” at the recent NAB show – we have already a pretty good picture of some of the major new features that CS7 (let’s call it) will include. Adobe says all of the new products will be included in the Creative Cloud as soon as they’re out.

Here below we’ve compiled some of the key information on what’s new and expected in the upcoming release, and will keep this list up-to-date as we move forward…

Adobe promises much more will be revealed in the presentation on May 6th – so stay tuned!

CS7? Create Grace Period for Free Upgrade to Next Adobe Release

April 11th, 2013 9 comments

[UPDATE (May 6th) – Major news out: Adobe Unveils New “CC” Release (CS7)…]

Based on recent indications from Adobe, we expect a new release of Creative Suite and/or Creative Cloud to be unveiled at their big annual MAX Conference on May 6th, just a few weeks away…

Know the Return Policy to Create Your Own Grace Period for a Free Upgrade to Adobe CS7

Historically during times like these, the company has set a “grace period” or grandfather offer to provide free upgrades to the next versions for customers buying the older software around the time of new releases – and in fact, such an “Upgrade Assurance promotion” deal was announced for CS6 in March of last year.

However, no such announcement has been forth­coming this year, perhaps due to the advent of Creative Cloud – where all paid members already receive all product updates and upgrades at no additional charge as soon as they are available.

But no matter – you can actually create your own grace period now, whether one officially exists or not.

The key is in awareness of Adobe’s longstanding Software Return/Exchange Policy – whereby you can return your purchase to them within 30 days and they will grant you a full refund, no questions asked. This is possible even if you’ve already opened, installed, activated, and started using your product – and can be done quickly over live online chat with their customer service team.
