Another rumor materialized today: Adobe announced a new Photoshop Photography Program that includes Photoshop CC, Lightroom 5, Behance ProSite and 20GB of storage for $9.99 per month:

Beginning today, customers who own Photoshop CS3 or higher are eligible for a special Creative Cloud membership offer that includes all of the following for just $9.99/month:

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

To be clear, $9.99 is not an introductory price. It is the price for those of you who sign up by December 31, 2013. This offer will be available at the same time we introduce the new version of Lightroom 5.2 in a couple weeks.

On their blog Adobe mentioned that this offer is available today but I was told that you are not going to be able to sign up for the $9.99 plan till September 17, 2013.

  • oh well …

    I might actually go for this … but I JUST bought Lightroom 5 and don’t have a Photoshop license, so …

    • more meh …

      Also, what anyone who shoots RAW is going to do with a whopping 20GB is beyond me. Way to suck Adobe.

      • Nishi Drew

        lol yeah, 32GB cards are pretty much standard and they fill up fast with raw. So that’s the catch? Seems like the company broke down to the community’s backlash but what do you bet, they’ll still make sure to get their $$$ through extra storage

      And when you stop paying your monthly lifetime dues, until you die, your
      software dies on you. Along with fulll access to the native files you
      had created. No, thanks.

    • Stefan

      So you fell for their rubbish PR (as I did initially). This offer is only for people who own a current license of Photoshop CS3 or later, basically an incentive to upgrade to the CC version. Sorry.

    • 57thStIncident

      Same boat, though I have CS3.

  • anonymous

    Adoibe sounds desperate.

  • Still Rocking CS3

    Again, what is the total price for these programs? For how long will we have to pay $9.99 for, Adobe? It does seem that they are getting desperate and as long as we keep boycotting their ridiculous new “Never ending purchasing program” then we will only get what we want. An affordable hard copy of all these programs with a one time payment. Also, please do not sacrifice quality for affordability Adobe. Do not become a greedy clone bitting dinosaur like Hasselblad! Please!

      Forget about this bottomless demands Adobe, once a customer is gone (purchased other software), it’s gone for at least a few years. If Adobe has a change of heart, I might forgive them in a few years. Till then, $4.99 a month may be more like it.

  • SZRimaging

    Also note, unless they changed it for this offer, if you have a student/teacher edition, you are not eligible.

  • sperdynamite

    This is reasonable. I will probably go for this. I don’t mind subscribing for a decent price, but 600 bucks a year for software I don’t want? Nope. LR/PS, all I need. They should probably throw in indesign for us wedding folk, but I’ll take this upgrade. I had been waiting to upgrade LR anyways, glad I did.

  • 57thStIncident

    If this is actually $9.99/mo indefinitely, that’s not so bad — I’m used to paying to upgrade LR pretty frequently so to have that and PS for not that much more cost on an annual basis might actually work for me.

    I think Adobe is making a mistake by neglecting new customers instead of encouraging them to join the CC. Right now people that don’t own cs3 or higher have to pay $30/month for a mont to month subscription and that’s just to use only Photoshop. i think it’s unbelievable for a company like Adobe to discourage new customers who just didn’t want photoshop before and want it now. I own Cs3 but find it unfair to people who don’t.

    its all about “Tablet era” you don’t have to install the software to run it on your limited memory tablet. but I still hope they will give us an option to install it on our PC for the meantime.

  • justathought

    If it were $5 per month for photoshop alone, the majority of people I know who use cracked software would come onboard. At this price Adobe could also easily blow the competition out of the water.

  • Myamar_SL

    If people actually buy their software legally, they will know that $9.99/month is a good deal for the PS CC and LR.
