Adobe Extends Photoshop CC/Lightroom 5 $9.99/mth Deal
« on: December 04, 2013, 08:52:28 AM »

No previous versions required

Adobe has extended their Photoshop CC/Lightroom 5 deal until December 8, 2013. I’m assuming the extension is due to the positive response to the pricing and requirements.


You can get both Photoshop CC & Lightroom 5 for $9.99/mth without owning a previous version of Creative Suite or Photoshop.


I have personally signed up for this promotion and I know I’ll be happy.

Just to highlight the fine print:

"...After the first 12 months, we will automatically renew your contract based on the current price of the offering"

to be honest i can see this eventually becoming a permanently available option alongside the current single app and full apps options.

I'll stick with my copies of PS Pro CS6...and LR5. 

I'm not ready to rent my software yet....

I've seen a variety of responses and wonder if anyone can concretely answer the question: What happens to the applications after the 12 month period is up if the CC service is not renewed?

The last I understood the apps remain and will work though no new features will be added/updated/installed and the cloud storage space is reduced to 2GB. How far off the mark am I?

I will keep CS6 on my machine, but this was too good a deal to ignore.

My understanding the apps will stop working after 30days,

I tend to side with those who see this as a trap.  Whether it is an intentional scheme or a market attempt to make things more attractive, it doesn't really matter to me.  what matters to me is that after you spend $120 over one year, you are at the  mercy of Adobe to renew the software lease at whatever price they deem to be the right one.  no thanks.  Its the uncertainty that bothers me, and no amount of FAQs or presidential promises will override the language in the T&C.  If they want to smooth over the T&C then change the T&C not the rhetoric around it.

I acknowledge that in the enterprise world, a great many software capabililties are offered in subscription mode, and that "software as a service" is gaining much momentum:  companies are in some cases opting to rent software from a cloud provider -- but in these situations (part of)  the attractiveness is that the enterprise does not have to maintain the computing infrastructure, which can include large data centers, and the people to maintain them.  So if the entrprise does not want to invest in that core competancy it can make sense to use SAAS.   However, in my experience these SAAS applications are never ever sold as a one-year low ball contract with no price guarentee after that.  no IT organization with a lick of sense would put their enterprise at that much risk.   Moreover, the adobe deal does not really reduce the computing requirements of the local Desktop in the sense that subscribers will suddenly have to pay less for their computers as would be the case in the enterprise.  So the cost attractiveness of the CC cloud isn't real -- its frosting without knowing what the cake is made of.   

I do acknowledge that especially for those without conventional licenses now, that the rental is quite attractive, especially if your work depends on keeping up with the latest capabilities.  If you trust Adobe to be price competive after the first year, or you view the $120 first-year expense as an experiment, then its probably right for you.

In Germany it's a little more expensive at 12,29 €/mth, limited to 12 months also.

I wonder what's the prize after this period ??? Guess much higher!

As I understand it..if you quit paying for CC, at some point your applications will cease to function completely and you will not be able to use PS or LR (cc versions) anymore to open or manipulate your files.

A little more expensive? 12.29 is about $16.65 or 66% more expensive than the US version.

Yay for geographic price discrimination and that because you're not in the USA, you'll accept it and pay more.

Just say NO!

what happens if you want to do PP work while on a long flight for example, or otherwise off the grid?

Nobody ever extends a deal due to positive response, they extend it because they haven't yet achieved the outcome that they originally set out to. Or in other words, people don't want to go near this deal because they can see that Adobe will bump up the price at some later point in time and they'll be held hostage to that change in price with nothing to show for the money they've spent.
