Adobe announced last week at its Photoshop World conference in Las Vegas a special Creative Cloud subscription membership for $9.99 per month. The special offer is for existing eligible Photoshop CS 3 or higher users who sign up by December 31, 2013.
The Creative Cloud subscription will include the following online applications and services: Photoshop CC, Lightroom 5, 20 GB of online storage, Behance ProSite, access to Creative Cloud training resources, and ongoing upgrades and updates. Adobe says Creative Suites and volume licenses don’t qualify for the special offer. The subscription also requires the annual commitment with a monthly billing.
The special offer is not a introductory price, and the current monthly fee is for the first year only. If you cancel your membership after signing up, Adobe says that you will not be able to rejoin at the special price.
Back in May, Adobe unveiled its new Creative Cloud suite of online photo editing, HTML5 web design, and other applications including Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. Access to the entire suite starts at $49 per month.
Adobe says that the special offer is in response to feedback from a wide range of its customers base, from advanced professionals to casual enthusiasts, who want more affordable access to Photoshop CC and Lightroom.
