Macworld reports that Adobe is making its first application available on the Mac App Store. Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Editor is being offered for $79.99 which is less than the $99 boxed version (which is often discounted– for instance it is $60 currently after a $20 discount at Amazon).
Mac App Store version of the application costs $80 and includes all the same editing tools as the full version. However, unlike the full $100 version, it does not come bundled with the Adobe Elements Organizer application. This version is available only in English, and cannot be purchased anywhere outside of Apple’s Mac App Store.
The big deal here is that a huge software maker, that makes a lot of money on selling boxed software, is trying out the App Store. Adobe are also experimenting in the iOS App Store as well. The big question: Will Creative Suite be there soon with Apple taking 30% of the cut? Ouch.
