Did you see...

The Photoshop Photography Program

18th September 2013

Photoshop-Photography-ProgramMany existing users of Adobe software were a little disgruntled by the move to Creative Cloud earlier in the year. Many of our readers were among them citing that, if you only use a couple of products then Creative Cloud seemed a little like paying for an over expensive sledgehammer to crack a nut.

Adobe seemed to listen and answered queries as best they could at the time. To their credit, they also contacted TipSquirrel.com to see if we were ok fielding the questions and accusations that were cropping up in our comments and Facebook feed.

Adobe last night announced that their solution to the problem, The Photoshop Photography Program has gone live, and should, hopefully, appease existing customers that would like Photoshop CC.

So, What Do You Get?

  • Photoshop CC
  • Lightroom 5
  • 20 GB of online storage
  • Behance ProSite
  • Access to Creative Cloud Learner’s training resources
  • Ongoing upgrades and updates

How Do you ‘Qualify’ For it?

You have to be an existing customer with a perpetual Photoshop CS3-CS6 license.

How Much Is It?



However: Quoting the Adobe website; this is the cost “… when you sign up for a one-year plan. This is not an introductory price, but you need to join by December 31, 2013”

What will the cost be on January 1st 2014? This humble writer isn’t privy to that information… watch this space.

    Actually, I am more than a little annoyed. I don’t like the idea of renting software and don’t want to be forced into doing it.

    I own CS6 and now I’m being treated as a second-class citizen unless I agree to go along with their extortion.

    Having used PS for many years and gone through many upgrades
    I feel betrayed and will look for a replacement instead of yielding to

    I am a serious hobbyist and part of my enjoyment was
    learning new ways to use Photoshop. The company’s
    new policy has definitely damaged that enthusiasm.

    Furthermore, other than corporate greed I can see no reason
    for this to have taken place. Creative Cloud could have been offered as an option and the consumers could choose the best solution for their needs.

    Moreover, I don’t want to hear the BS about security, that is their concern and I don’t expect to have my usage of the product affect by their inability to handle it.
