Adobe says it’s considering a photographer’s bundle for Creative Cloud

Adobe’s unveiling of its latest updates to Creative Cloud earlier this week came with the announcement it will only support Creative Cloud members for future updates, effectively dropping support for customers of its boxed CS6 suite and below apart from security updates and some bug fixes. Adobe has since taken to its Photoshop blog to respond to some of the questions regarding its new CC branded suite of apps and specifically the $20/per month Photoshop users will be forced to pay if they don’t want a full Creative Cloud membership.

While clarifying that single-app memberships for Photoshop will allow users to purchase Lightroom with a perpetual software license separately, the post explained it’s currently offering a special introductory price of $9.99 per month for users of CS3 and up until July 31st. That will let you get a single-app Photoshop license for $10 a month for the first year.

Adobe also confirmed it is considering a photographer’s bundle or “photography cloud solution” that would presumably include various photo related apps at a special price through Creative Cloud:

We’ve heard there’s a lot of interest in a photographer’s bundle or photography cloud solution and we’re actively exploring offerings we can potentially create for you. We welcome your feedback around what you would like to see that fits your workflow needs.

You can currently get 40% off to upgrade from Creative Suite product to a Creative Cloud membership with special introductory pricing of $29.99/month and $20/month off for signing up for Creative Cloud for Teams.

Adobe’s Creative Cloud now allows you to sync settings and fonts between multiple computers

We are live at Adobe MAX where Adobe just announced that its Flagship CS suite of applications is now called Adobe CC for Creative Cloud (not ‘Commons’). One of the more interesting features of Adobe’s CC suite is that it now allows you to sync settings and fonts between multiple computers.

This is pretty cool if it works as advertised.

Creative Suite Stories January 11, 2012

Adobe makes a compelling suite of creative applications, which are the de facto industry standard, but Adobe’s high price points have traditionally put off many prospective Creative Suite buyers. To make matters worse, a change in upgrade policy last year enraged customers as it pushed them towards pricier subscription-based offerings. Well, if you already own Adobe Creative Suite 3 or CS4, you are in for a surprise as the company just announced a special upgrade offer towards CS6 purchases. According to a blog post, special introductory upgrade pricing on Creative Suite 6 to customers who own CS3 or CS4 is available from the time CS6 is released until December 31, 2012. Details will be announced here when CS6 and Creative Cloud are released later this year.
