Get Photoshop CC + Lightroom CC + More for $7.99/Month with this Adobe Photography Discount

UPDATE – This special one-time promotional offer has ended. Please join through one of the current CC membership plans:

We’ve got a terrific new deal for you, one that is only available here to readers of ProDesignTools… For a limited time and while our allocation lasts, you can get an annual membership to the CC Photography plan – which includes the latest-and-greatest releases of both Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC – for 20% off the regular price worldwide. That works out to just US$7.99, £5.71, €7.99, or A$7.99 per month (plus applicable taxes or VAT) in several major currencies.

This is the best price ever offered on the full Photoshop! To take advantage of this savings, you must sign up with this special link. This promotion is available in all countries where Creative Cloud is sold direct from Adobe, with no previous purchase or software ownership required. It is an introductory offer good for your first year, after which the price shifts to the regular ongoing rate (currently US$9.99 a month). The 12-month discount offer ends November 28, 2015.

Special: Legally download dozens of free Adobe books for a limited time!

What Does It Include?

The Creative Cloud Photography Bundle comes with complete desktop releases of both Photoshop CC 2015 and Lightroom CC 2015, plus other integrated tools and services. It includes all of the following components now for only US$7.99/month with an annual membership:

Adobe Creative Cloud Growing Fast, Many Millions of Paid Subscribers (Click to Enlarge)

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 over a decade of subscribing to this special plan instead, but 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, and don’t want or need the Complete Creative Cloud, then this is a great package. Offer time and quantities are limited, so don’t miss out!

Special Discount Offer: Get the Adobe CC Photography Bundle for Just US$7.99/Month

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 (beginning at $19.99 a month in the US) plus two months free, also with no prior software ownership necessary.

Want to get started today, for free? You can download the CC 2015 trials which will install and run fully-functional for 30+ 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.

    Hello, If I already subscribed to adobe photography plan, will it automatically reduce my monthly price?

    • Well, it’s the inevitable question. Whenever we offer a special discount in partnership with Adobe, folks want to know if they can use it to lower the price of something they already purchased.

      In general, it’s not possible. You can buy another (add-on) subscription at this lower price – one per customer – but you can’t apply the discount retroactively. The only exception would be if you bought it from Adobe within the past 14 days, then you could return it using their refund policy and go this route instead.

      It’s just one of those things in life. It’s like if you bought a new TV several months ago, and then someplace comes out with a great sale. Usually there’s not much you can do, except consider that you’ve used and enjoyed the TV in the time since you bought it.

      Thanks for your question.

  2. Franco

    This is great, thanks !

  3. Charri

    Thanks for the offer! Can I pay for the 1-year subscription up front?

    • Good question Charri. With this special offer, it’s not possible. If you want to score the 20% savings, then the discount is available only with the paid-monthly option.

      However, you can still use a debit/credit card, or PayPal now in many countries.

      You can also use any Visa/MasterCard gift card (prepaid or reloadable) that has a balance available.

  4. Jacques

    Will you be having a discount on creative cloud? Now that offer i would take, hehehe

  5. Sandi

    I already have the CC Photography Plan. If I do this offer, can I be assured of the $10 price when it ends?

  6. Mark

    I have the CC subscription at $9.99. I signed up through PDT sometime within the past year or so. I get the impression that the price will not be reduced for existing subscriptions. Would it work to cancel the current subscription and take advantage of this offer?

    Admittedly, I thought to use this subscription to start the photographic greeting card company my wife and I planned 5 years ago. I have not done anything with it since then and may well be best served with PSE14 instead. What will be the price for PSE14? Is there a different upgrade price?

    Thanks for your help. And thanks for these great opportunities.

    • Greetings Mark, nice to see you back and thanks for your questions. Here are the answers!

      Generally, stopping an Adobe annual plan will incur a cancellation fee, unless you are in the final month of the plan. Here are the subscription terms for working out how much that might be.

      Would it be worth it to cancel your existing CC subscription and sign up with this discounted offer instead? Possibly, but it would depend on the size of any fee vs. the size of the savings you get with this special plan.

      Alternatively, you could try contacting Adobe Customer Service (via live online chat is usually fastest/easiest) and see if they will waive any fee, knowing that you will be re-signing up immediately with a lower-priced CC offer. (No guarantees if that works!)

      On your last question, Photoshop Elements 14 is already out – it was released about a month ago. You can download the free trials here, and Adobe’s Elements pricing remains consistent with the past, including for upgraders.

      Finally, here are the differences between PSE 14 vs. 13, 12, and 11, if you are looking to see what’s new.

      Hope that helps!

  7. Burton Rein

    How do I switch from the $9.99 per month plan that I am currently on to the $7.99 plan? I only really need to keep using Lightroom and Photoshop.

  8. R.W.Moseley (Bob)

    can you please tell me if this package is :
    Compatible with Windows 10?
    Includes any upgrades as they become available?
    Can be obtained in the UK?
    I would be using a credit card to pay, will this be ok using the cc?

    Many thanks
    Bob Moseley

    • Hello Bob, a definite YES to all four questions:

      1. Yes. Here are Adobe’s official system requirements for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, for both Windows and Mac.

      2. Yes. All ongoing upgrades are included and available to you immediately – so you can always be running the latest-and-greatest releases of both Photoshop and Lightroom.

      3. Yes. The 20%-off discount offer is available worldwide, and the price in the UK is £5.71 plus VAT.

      4. Yes. Using a credit card, a debit card, or Paypal should all work fine for you.

      Hope that helps!

  9. I live in Tanzania and tried to purchase Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom only to be told that Adobe CC is not available in Tanzania yet. Any idea when it will be, and is there a solution you can offer until it becomes available?

    • Hi Mike, thanks for your questions. It appears that Adobe is not yet offering Creative Cloud for Individuals in the country where you live… The list of where CC can be purchased is now up to 83 countries and always growing larger.

      However, if you happen to have a billing address and form of payment (including PayPal) that is based in any one of those other (covered) countries, then you should still be able to purchase CC direct – even if your home address is elsewhere…

      [Note that your Adobe ID needs to be associated with the same country as your credit card or billing address, so if it isn’t then you may have to create a new Adobe ID.]

      But even if that doesn’t work, then you should still be able to buy Creative Cloud for Teams from a reseller in your country. However, the offer described above ($7.99/month for Photoshop + Lightroom) is not available from any reseller or retailer, but only from Adobe direct.

      Finally, while not everyone has full access yet, Adobe tells us they continue to work to expand the availability on an ongoing basis – so look for still more countries to be added going forward (and don’t forget that Creative Suite was never sold everywhere either).

      But whatever you do, avoid any illegitimate version at all costs!

    your photoshop+lightroom discount-offer does not work in austria. started, but in the end always ended up on your “offer-page.”

    i wanted to save €20.- a year, but by now i wasted my time……please check with adobe!


    • Hey there Nick – sorry you’re having difficulties… Adobe told us that the discount would be available worldwide, wherever Creative Cloud was offered by them directly. We’re going to look into this and get right back to you – thanks!

    • Hello again Nick – just double-checked the deal offered with an Austrian Adobe account, and the pricing is correct… You should be seeing €7,99 + 20% VAT = €9,59 for your total price. That’s what we get.

      That is a 20% discount off the regular price for the CC Photography plan (normally €11,99/month). So, in fact the special offer does appear to be working fine in your country.

      Please let us know if that isn’t clear, or if you have any further questions!

  11. niki zajicek

    Thanks for your efforts!

    I could solve the problem by using firefox instead of chrome!


  12. Rafael Gonzalez

    Yesterday evening I signed up to get the CC Photography Plan and so far I have not received any feedback from you folks or from Adobe. Signed up to Adobe today using my Adobe ID and it starts asking me to sign up to a plan – well, I already did through your web site. I’m in the States so it should not be a problem. Any help you could provide will be appreciated.



    • Greetings Rafael – sorry you’re having difficulties. You completed the payment transaction at Adobe’s site, but haven’t yet received anything afterwards? No email or confirmation page, or further guidance or instructions? Check your bulk/junk mail or spam folder to make sure nothing important wound up in there.

      Normally it can a day or so for Adobe’s system to finalize your order and process your payment, so you should have received something by now. What does your credit card company say – or PayPal, if you used them? You should see the receipt for the transaction showing up there.

      You may also want to contact Adobe directly (via live online chat is usually fastest/easiest) to see if they have any record of your order or payment.

      In the meantime, feel free to download the free CC trials and free Adobe books, and get started right away. You’ll be able to activate the trial software without reinstalling it when you have confirmation from Adobe.

      Hope that helps!

  13. Martin


    I am interested in the Photoshop/Lightroom bundle for $7.99. I currently have CS6 Master Collection, so I would like to know:

    1. Do I have to uninstall my current CS6 Photoshop app first?

    2. Will there be any conflicts once I download the Creative Cloud version of Photoshop?

    3. I plan on sharing the CC bundle with one other computer in my household. If Photoshop CC or Lightroom CC were being used on one computer, could I use my old Photoshop CS6 version on my current computer at the same time?


  14. Martin


    Cool–sign me up!

    And thanks for your quick response!

  15. Rafael Gonzalez

    Twice I have made the transaction (from this site) to purchase the Photoshop/Lightroom bundle for $7.99, gone through all the motions providing required information, etc, and no response whatsoever from Adobe. On both times the system seemed to accept the transaction. I’m using the free trial so my info is also in the site. I have checked with my credit card company and they have not received any charges from Adobe.
    Would appreciate it if somebody could look into why this is happening?


    • Sorry you’re still having difficulties Rafael. We are looking into this for you, and hope to have a response for you tomorrow. Thanks for your comment and patience!

    • OK Rafael, here is the response we received direct from Adobe management:

      We are aware of the issue where some customers attempt to place an order but it is unsuccessful. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience.

      *** Please ask the customer to use a different browser (or clear the browser cache and cookies) – and then place a new order.

      If it’s possible to capture the following details, our IT team can debug the issue further:

      1. What was the customer’s browser type and version while placing the original order?

      2. At which step of the purchase process did the customer first experience the problem? e.g. After entering payment information? After submitting the order? etc.

      3. What exact issue did the customer experience, if any? (e.g,. page not found, page did not load, page loads indefinitely, page presents an error message, page redirects to another page, etc.)

      Thank you!

      So we really hope that helps you out. Please let us know how it goes, and if you can answer those questions then we will pass the information straight back to Adobe!

  16. Rafael

    I switched browsers (should have thought about this earlier) and placed the order and worked with no problem. Definitely appreciate your help in solving this.

    To answer the IT team questions, I was using Firefox V42 with no results, and switched to Internet Explorer V10 which allowed me to sign up

    The problem occurred after entering payment information – screen changed back to ProDesignTools $7.99 offer screen and I was not sure if it had gone through or not.

    Again, thanks for the help – happy customer now.


    • Thank you so much Rafael – that is really great to hear, and we appreciate letting us know how you solved it by using a different browser.

      We will pass the detailed information you gave back to Adobe, so that hopefully they can take care of that glitch!

  17. ED

    Hi, is there an option to pay the full year in advance with this promo? I tried to purchase it but it only wants me to be billed on a monthly period with a 1 year commitment.

  18. eddie

    is there a way to avail of the promo and pay 1 year in advance, instead of monthly?

    • Hi Eddie, thanks for your question. Normally with most CC subscriptions you can prepay one year upfront – however for this special promotion, that option is not available.

      If you still want to prepay upfront, then you can easily purchase a prepaid debit card from Visa or MasterCard and use that instead.

      Sorry, and hope you can still take advantage of it!

  19. Robert Campsmith

    How can I prepay for a year in advance at the 7.99 price? The only button is for monthly charge to my credit card?

  20. Robert Campsmith

    I don’t want my credit card hanging open for a year, so I’ll pay directly to Adobe. Thanks anyway.

    • It’s no problem if you still want to prepay upfront for the CC plan. As mentioned above, you can also use any Visa/MasterCard gift card (prepaid or reloadable) that has a balance available.

      So you can easily purchase a Visa eGift Card online that is delivered to you instantly via email. It works as a virtual debit card – just put whatever maximum balance you want on it and then you can use it wherever you want, including at Adobe. Done.

  21. Hello, I currently have the CC Photography Bundle but I would like to upgrade to the full package for students, is that possible? Can I use the Black Friday discount? Many thanks.

  22. Is this $7.99 deal only for 1 year subscription? Or is it continual?

  23. Ladi

    Hi, I am trying to click on the links, but I just get a black screen. Are the discounts gone by now?

  24. John Hastings

    Hi There,

    Not wishing to disagree with you but on personal experience there are two issues I would raise. First, I paid for my Photoshop/Lightroom CC subscription in a one-off payment for the whole year in April 2015, not monthly, and I have continued to use and get regular updates for both Photoshop and Lightroom. Second, I attended the photographic exhibition in Birmingham (England) yesterday and the Adobe stand were promoting the new lower price deal.

    Hope that helps.

  25. Mike Kay

    I took up this offer and have now been advised by Adobe that the fee will increase to $11.99; that’s an increase of 47%. They claim the increase is due to ‘rate of exchange’ which is rubbish. The product is good but the increase is not justified.
    Mike in Oz

    • It’s not rubbish at all Mike. You’ve actually been getting the product much cheaper in Australia than what Adobe’s American customers pay, and still will be! See here for the details on how and why that price adjustment happened:

      Why Did My Adobe Creative Cloud Membership Price Change?

      Also contributing to the increase is that your first year promotional pricing is ending (i.e., the introductory $7.99/mo. CC Photography Plan rate that you received through this page).

      Hope that explanation helps.
