We originally ran the story below in October after a new Dehaze/Defog capability was sneak-peeked at Adobe MAX… It was our favorite of the show! Now, we have some great news: Adobe worldwide evangelist Terry White just confirmed this will actually be a real feature coming soon in the new CC 2015 release of creative tools. Here’s his video demo:

Dehaze will in fact be included in both Lightroom CC 2015 and Photoshop CC 2015 as part of Adobe Camera Raw. All complete Creative Cloud members as well as Photography Plan subscribers will automatically receive this update at no extra cost as soon as the new version is available. Note that Dehaze is not included in Lightroom 6.

And it’s now confirmed! The official release date for CC 2015 is on June 16th.

Offer Ending Soon! Existing CS Customers: Upgrade to Adobe CC and Save 40% Off the Regular Price

[UPDATE – See all of Adobe’s current deals & discounts!]

It’s been over two years now since the initial launch of the Adobe CC release (replacing CS6) and we’ve seen over 1,000 new features added and included since that time – so recently Adobe confirmed they will be ending their popular Creative Cloud 40%-off discount upgrade offer for existing customers of CS3, CS4, CS5, CS5.5, or CS6:

The updated terms and conditions show that this upgrade discount offer for CS3 through CS6 to CC will only be available until May 29th, 2015:


Note that this offer is limited to one (1) purchase of one (1) discounted Creative Cloud Complete annual membership per customer – and may not be assigned, exchanged, sold, transferred, or redeemed for cash.

Compare Your Options: The Differences Between Lightroom 6 vs. CC

May 7th, 2015 79 comments

The new version of Adobe Lightroom 6/CC was released for direct download recently, and we keep getting questions from readers like this one:

Are Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC the same?
If not, then what are all the differences between Lightroom 6 vs. Lightroom CC?

Get New Adobe Lightroom 6/CC Now

…so we thought it was time to write a new article about this topic.

Here’s the answer, with the differences put simply:

Lightroom 6 is the core program running on your desktop – the new version that follows Lightroom 5, with significant features and improvements added since LR5. Adobe is offering two options to customers, and the Lightroom 6 route is a perpetual license – basically standalone static software. The updates that Lightroom 6 users receive going forward will be for bug fixes and new camera and lens profiles only, but not new feature upgrades that Lightroom CC customers will receive on an ongoing basis.

Lightroom CC 2015 takes Lightroom 6 and offers it via subscription together with access to integrated mobile apps (like Lightroom Mobile) and online services (like Lightroom Web with unlimited online photo storage).  Lightroom CC also gives you ongoing new feature updates as soon as they are available – including the popular Dehaze and Boundary Warp functions, as well as the new Guided Upright feature and Local B&W Adjustment Sliders – none of which are in LR6.

What’s the Difference Between Lightroom 6/CC vs. 5 – What’s New?

Compare Versions: What Are the Differences Between Lightroom 6/CC vs. LR5?

The long-awaited Adobe Lightroom 6/CC began shipping this week, and has got some folks pretty excited about the new features and capabilities… There’s a long list of them given further below, but some of the highlights include much improved performance, facial recognition, photo merge for both HDR and panorama, advanced video slideshows, improved web galleries, new Pet Eye tool, touch-enabled PC support, plus GPU acceleration and native 64-bit architecture on Windows and Mac.

One big change is the naming difference and what you get with the two options (Lightroom 6 vs. Lightroom CC). You can still buy a standalone perpetual version as before (either full or upgrade from an older release) – the product is then called Lightroom 6 and it will still receive bug fixes and new camera/lens additions, but will not get ongoing new feature updates and does not have access to online LR features and apps such as Lightroom Mobile and Lightroom web.

How to Buy Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) with PayPal, not Credit Card

News: Adobe Now Accepting PayPal for Creative Cloud Subscriptions

For years it was difficult if not impossible to buy Adobe software online (especially the newer CC subscriptions) and pay with PayPal instead of a credit card or debit card… In fact, not even Amazon accepts PayPal. But finally, great news: Adobe has just made it possible to purchase all software using PayPal in many countries worldwide, so you can now buy Creative Cloud without a credit/debit card.

These countries include the US, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Brazil, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and much of Europe (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and Spain). Alternatively, payment using Switch or Solo is also supported in the UK.

[UPDATE – Adobe says: “We no longer have a published list of countries where PayPal is accepted. Instead, the customer will see the payment types that apply to their country on the Plans page.”]

Get All-New Adobe CC 2015 (Creative Cloud) for $19.99/Month - Save 60%-70% Off the Regular Price, No Promo Code Needed

[UPDATE (Oct. 2018) – Students & teachers will now receive Adobe’s all-new CC 2020 release of tools & services with Creative Cloud membership – all other information below remains the same.]

The standard pricing for Adobe’s new CC 2015 release – their flagship Creative Cloud all-in-one offering – is US$50 a month with an annual membership. But what about education customers? How much is the academic discount?

On price, the offer is even better – all students, teachers, and education staff can now pay just US$19.99/month with an annual plan (under $1/day) for your first year – but importantly, no previous ownership of any Adobe product is required and no coupon code is necessary.  Outside of North America, the levels of reduction can be even greater – £16.24 or €19,50 or A$21.99 per month (including VAT), or 60-70% off:

What’s the Difference Between Adobe Student Editions vs. Regular?

Get the Adobe Student & Teacher Editions Discount

The Adobe Student and Teacher Editions look like a great deal. They offer big discounts, as much as 70% off normal prices. They’re available for most of Adobe’s most popular products, including the Creative Cloud (CC), Creative Suite 6, Lightroom 5, Acrobat XI, and Elements 13.  They can be purchased by anyone who qualifies – primary, middle, and secondary school students, homeschoolers, college or university students, faculty, teachers, and administrators.  Even part-time students or teachers can be eligible, and there is no maximum age limitation. They’re available pretty much worldwide in many languages on both Windows and Mac OS, and you don’t need any kind of coupon or promotion code to get the deep discounts.

So what’s the catch? Is the Academic software different or limited somehow? Read more…

Adobe CC Prepaid Subscriptions: How to Buy a Year+ in Advance

See the Adobe Creative Cloud One-Year Prepaid Subscriptions

A lot of people have been asking for this, and now there is a solution for all customers worldwide…  Adobe’s CC 2020 release of creative desktop tools has been well-received, but some folks prefer not to have a monthly payment on their credit cards or would rather prepay for their Creative Cloud member­ships upfront, a year (or more) at a time. This used to be tricky, but fortun­ately there is now a very easy way to do it for all products available.

For each different Adobe subscription plan, you’ll now find a dropdown menu with a One-Year Prepaid option when buying or renewing your Creative Cloud subscription. These prepaid plans are offered in up to 83 countries and allows you to make a one-time charge in advance of each year, rather than a smaller amount each month… It solves the problem for those who may have difficulties with month-by-month recurring pay­ments, and it’s avail­able for all different types of memberships: Individual, Educa­tion, or Business; including upgrades from older software.
