Photoshop has always been the big boy in the 2D imaging world and I have always found it a bit too expensive at the @ 800$ a license. What would you say though if you could instead buy Photoshop CS on a subscription basis for 50$ a month?
How about if I threw in some cloud based features like online storage? Still not sold?
Ok, how about if I threw in Photoshop Touch as well? Still not convinced?
Oh, how about I threw in say… Illustrator, Lightroom, InDesign, Muse, Acrobat Pro, Flash Pro, Flash Builder Premium, Dreamweaver, Edge, Fireworks, Premiere, After Effects, Audition, SpeedGrade, Prelude, Encore, Bridge, Encoder, Proto, Ideas, Debut, Collage and Kuler? Did that get your attention?
Because that is exactly what Adobe just did!
The newly announced Creative Cloud appears to be a an all you can eat subscription to pretty much everything Adobe makes, coupled with their fairly new web services, like 2GB of cloud storage.
Pricing starts at 50$ on a annual commitment basis, rises to 75$ on a month by month basis. If you are already paying for one or more CS products, this represents a massive discount. Oh, speaking of already paying, if you are an existing subscriber, it is available until August 31 at 30$ a month!.
EDIT: I suppose I should point out, you can’t actually buy it yet, its in pre-order at the moment.
