What’s next in Adobe Creative Cloud to be announced on June 18

Adobe-new-Creative-Cloud
Adobe is planning to announce "what's next in Creative Cloud" on June 18th. The company has setup a new dedicated website where you can signed up to receive more information. This announcement could be related to the upcoming touch-based Photoshop CC version for tablets or maybe even the recent CC outage.

Photoshop CC + Lightroom 5 + Adobe Be + 20 GB of storage is still on sale for $9.99 per month:

    A whole year with limited in the time special offers. It seems they are truly desperate.

    • Ratty Mouse

      Exactly. This Adobe CC stuff reeks of total desparation. We laugh at you Adobe. All the time.

      • goldaccess

        Haters hate. All the time.

        • Ratty Mouse

          Any more brilliant slogans? No, I didn’t think so.

      • Spy Black

        Reeks of total domination to me. They win.

  • Remedy

    No, thanks. My CS6 is doing just fine without your cloud based nonsense.

    • rt-photography

      *and the crowd goes wild*..EXACTLY!

    • Clint

      Good for you…but what about the people who never bought CS6. Also, what’s all the fuss about the Cloud….the SW runs resident on your PC/Mac.

    • El Aura

      CS6 is as much cloud-based as CC. You download the application from the internet and you regularly download updates to it from the internet.

      Somehow Adobe has managed to associate rental software with the cloud, even though they have nothing to do with each other. You can make use of the cloud with CC in exactly the same manner as you did/do with CS6. CC is nothing but CS7 that needs monthly ‘re-activation’ with Adobe.

      People don’t like the rental aspect and since Adobe labelled their first rental version with ‘cloud’ in its name, people assume that the two are linked. Rental is bad, thus CC is bad, and the cloud is bad and thus CC must be cloud-based.

      • rt-photography

        ***CS6 is as much cloud-based as CC.***

        no. Who said? I bought a boxed version. didnt download and dont update.

        • El Aura

          I have not been bought boxed versions of any software for many years (CS3 in 2007 probably was the last one). You personally might not like to download software but for 99% of the people complaining about CC that is not an issue.

          • rt-photography

            Im glad you took it upon yourself to speak for all those who bought adobe CC.

            HEY GUYS! El Aura is the new adobe spokesperson!

            btw, dont talk before you know. the CS6 is available to buy in a box and many still prefer to buy something physical. and since you dont know how many bought boxed vs downloaded, you really shouldnt comment about it.

          • El Aura

            I have so far not bought/rented CC yet, I’m still on CS5. But it just makes me cringe when I see people complaining about CC because it has the word ‘cloud’ in its name. This sounds to me like somebody complaining about something because of its name and not for actual real reasons, a reflexive lashing out without bothering to actually even think things through or look at the actual product. Or like somebody not liking the rental aspect and somehow thinking that it is rental because it is cloud software (which I think is most common misconception, with some people associating renting with a web service, working much like Google’s Chromebooks).

            So, I am not pro CC, I am anti-misconception and un-informed and irrational criticism. And I prefer to engage people on the actual ‘issues’ they see first, before directly accusing them of irrationalism. However, since nobody actually wants to discuss the issues but rather just lash out at Adobe (or brand those that try to separate the rational criticism from the irrational one as Adobe shills), it is hard to respond without calling names.

          • rt-photography

            I have no issue with a download. I prefer to have the copy of the software and not rent. after im done with it, I can still sell it.

            Imo they will raise the prices sooner or later

          • Adam

            so You are stupid to give Adobe much more money then with boxed versions.

        • El Aura

          @rt-photography
          You didn’t install bug and security fixes released for CS6?

          • rt-photography

            didnt have any bugs. running fine.

  • Ratty Mouse

    Adobe, I will NEVER rent my software. EVER.

    • Clint

      Ironically I never paid for my SW (in 10yrs of using PS)…..and now I am renting it…go figure.

      • rt-photography

        and in the 10 years I payed like a sucker, I am never paying adobe again.

        • Clint

          IMO I would rather pay the $10/month than constantly be looking for cracked versions of SW. I never paid for PS before because of the outrageous upfront cost. I would bet that for what you paid in upfront SW costs over that 10 yrs you could now have a subscription for the next 10.

          I understand not wanting to ‘rent’ SW…but the reality is that whatever SW you buy is going to be obsolete in 3-5 yrs anyway. IE: Adobe no longer provides new camera RAW support to the older versions of PS/LR (as an example).

          • rt-photography

            look whos talking, the hypocrite in full glory!

            pirates and thieves for 10 years then decides to be a CC subscriber, telling everyone its the best thing since sliced bread and everyone should. has a condescending tone to others “IMO I would rather pay the $10/month than constantly be looking for cracked versions of SW.” and so now you become the pope/saint after 10 years of thieving?

            dude, I was buying their shitty software every version for 10 years and now I say fuck that. no more.

            I dont mind finding a cracked version at all if I need to. at the moment, im with CS6 and thats more than enough.CC was cracked from the day it was released.

            I almost never use LR, and I use photoshop for specific edits. I use ACDSEE pro 6 for my bulk edits of weddings. exposure, dodge burn, WB etc.

            now, youre obsolete comment has no relevance as many dont upgrade in 3-4 years. I upgraded to CS6 only cause I found a nice price on it. other than that, I would still be with CS4.

            thief.

          • Ian

            what a cunt.

          • rt-photography

            dont talk about yourself like that

          • Clint

            So I’m a hypocrite how exactly???? Because I decided to start paying for the SW??? Why so angry buddy?? life’s too short my friend, you should lighten up.

          • rt-photography

            Yes because you have a condescending tone to others. like now youre a saint because youre paying a measly 10 bucks a month now. where the hell was your money for 10 years when you were a thief? you ever calculate the thousands you stole from adobe (and probably other companies as well)

            trying to convince veryone that its so grea. thieving thousands of dollars and now paying an irrelevant 10 bucks now making it seem like youre a good two shoes.

            id rather pay 10 bucks then keep finding a cracked version. aw poor baby has to search all of 2 minutes for a pirate version and press the download button, instead of paying $700 each time.you poor baby.

            my point is be discrete and shut your mouth. if I stole software like you, I would keep my mouth shut and comments to myself. say thank you no one caught me. say thatnk you youre saving yourself a lot of money but I would not be so open and “proud” and you make yourself to be to have not payed for 10 years. a little discretion..but you have no tact and that is clear.

          • Clint

            LOL, dude….if you think I am alone in using PS all those years then you should give your head a shake. Have you seen how many people are sharing PS on torrent sites?? I would bet that there are FAR more people using ‘trials’ of the SW than ever paid for it…and that goes for this forum too. So if you want to talk about hypocrites it’s the silent majority that are nodding their head to my email back home. I’m not saying it’s right…just a fact of life. If you are going to sit there and tell me you have never used ‘free’ SW, or MP3′s or whatever the case may be…then I call BS.

            Adobe recognizes this and I’m sure that is one of the reasons that they changed to what I feel is a reasonable subscription service.

            I never said I was a saint for buying into CC, I simply stated a fact…I decided to pay for the service as it makes sense to me. If anyone here is being condescending it’s you…re-read the posts:)

          • MvW

            I’m sure Adobe is really broken up about you not wanting to pay for the newest editions. You should create posts like this on some more websites, if you haven’t already. I’m sure that if you keep at it, it’ll really get on their nerves and make them reconsider changing the software game for the better, for good.

            I’ve been a paying customer since CS3 (Master Suite), and couldn’t be happier with my Creative Cloud subscription.

            Nobody cares about your righteous indignation, and another few years from now you won’t have a choice.Mark my words: You will rent software before the decade is out. And when you finally click that subscribe button, when you ultimately give in, think about this discussion and hopefully realize that you were whyning over nothing that one time on photorumors.

          • rt-photography

            piratebay..look it up. db. not paying adobe a cent any more.

          • Adam

            Adobe – your answers are so stupid. Everybody knows that it’s not a real user, but “Adobe’s bot”. CC sucks and Adobe sucks! And you are not even able to keep your servers secure.

  • TheInconvenientRuth

    They will probbaly announce that:
    -The price will go up (because they said it wouldn’t..)
    -You now need to be always online to use any of the software
    -Everything you store in their cloud automatically becomes their (intellectual) property.

    • goldaccess

      Wrong.

    • madmax

      Probably.

    • El Aura

      So, how frequently do you have go online currently with CC? Every three to six months if you subscribe for a full year. That is far, far away from ‘always online’.

      • Spy Black

        Not true. The software always connects to Adobe every time you start it. How do you think those automatic updates work?

        • El Aura

          I said: “how frequently do you HAVE TO go online”. If you only need to be connected to the Internet once every 99 days, calling this requirement as needing to be “always online” is lying intentionally for dramatic effect (or for the personal satisfaction of slamming somebody else).

          It’s sarcasm that isn’t funny but merely polemic.

      • TheInconvenientRuth

        If you pay in advance for a year, you must be online once every 99 days. If you pay monthly, you must be online once every 30 days. (Adobe is not very clear about what happens if you don’t go online but have paid anyway…) This annoys me no-end as I’ll be trekking through Mongolia for about 6 weeks and have no idea if/when I can go online. If my LR/PS stop working I’m gonna be -very- unhappy.

  • Global

    They need to sweeten this package with a 3rd program. If you could select 3 products from the Creative Suite, I would be all over this for $10/month.

    As for Photoshop, the 10-year old versions work just as well for 99% of needs. And as for Lightroom, its only $80 and then you own it outright (and can even sell it for $20, making it $60 per year or less if you keep it 2-3 years). If they threw in a 3rd program, allowing the user to pick which ones they wanted, it could make it worth it. A little Illustrator or InDesign or other stuff in that pot and now we’re talking. Owning the Suite was as much for general learning and playing around as it was for the one program you really needed.

    Does anyone use Adobe for its Video-editing programs? It just seems to me that at a minimum Audio and Video editing is something they would want to throw in with a Photographers package, given the new cross-over reality these days…

  • Clint

    I guess I’m in the minority here but I took advantage of the $9.99/month deal a while back and to me it is worth every penny. You don’t need to be online to use the SW…and I don’t even use their cloud storage. To me, $9.99/month is cheap when you have the latest versions of CC/LR and the cost to buy those two pieces of SW would be huge.

    Put it this way….this is the first time I have paid for Photoshop in the 10 yrs I have been using it so that should tell you something:)

    • LarryC

      You may be in the vocal minority, but you are not alone. I am very glad to have made the jump last year to CC for $10/mo. At that price it is a great deal. The only problem is for how long they will continue with that rate. At $15-20/mo, the economics don’t work for me.

      Regardless, fighting cloud software reminds my of my father in the 70′s who refused to buy cable TV vowing to “never pay for TV”.

      • Clint

        You’re right Larry…..if Adobe bumps the price to $20/month I would seriously reconsider….but at $10 it’s kind of a no brainer IMO.

      • rt-photography

        your father is a smart man. I dont even pay for cable tv because I sold my TV 6 years ago. everything I need is through the internet and I save myself a lot of money.

    • Some guy

      You’re in the majority, I know a lot of people who have switched to paying for the software now it’s subscription based because they’re getting the whole suite and constant updates. It’s personally given me access to the suite at a low entry point and allowed me to cheaply build up my business.

      The reason it seems everyone is up in arms is because angry people post, happy people generally just sit back and be content.

      • Gerry

        and most people are angry because they cannot use pirated software anymore…

  • henri108

    Look, the people hating the cloud based Adobe are the people that would actually never buy a version of CS anyway. This is a very nice solution for people that use the software every day and always need the fastest and newest.

    • Sam

      Sorry to disagree but those of us whom use the software professionally day in day out are not happy with the release. I’ve sold Adobe hundereds of seats for every version of CS realeased up until 5.5/6. Professionally there’s no chance I’d risk my reputation to advise organisations to move to creative cloud, it is literally the only version of Adobe software that flaked out and caused a big delay in production on a project.

    • Ratty Mouse

      Wrong. Try again.

    • rt-photography

      youre very wrong. I bought all my versions till cs6. I didnt buy every version but have paid till now. Im not going to pay for cloud software. I want a copy I can later sell. I feel with cc they can do what the hell they want and I have no control. raise the price, change stuff as they see fit. I dont trust adobe one bit.

  • johnny

    For $50 a year I may think about it. $10 per month is still too much for amateurs.

  • SLR

    Yes I am one of the few who caved and signed up for CC. It went against every intuition I had but I really needed access to the various components. I applaud you who have stuck to your guns. CC is a big zero in terms of added value. Remember all those promises of features being delivered on the fly so the best stuff would be out as soon as it was ready. Well that never happened. Aside from a few bug fixes nothing great in a year of having CC. Sure it works and there are some nice features that weren’t in the last version I purchased but it is nothing like the hype Adobe put into it.

    I am glad that you all have held the line.

    • LarryC

      What exactly were you expecting? There’s been several updates and LR Mobile was released to CC users just a month or so ago. Adobe never said there would be tons of breakthrough new features every week.

      • SLR

        Like I said bug fixes and small tweaks. If you look back at the early promotional videos they talked about big features that had been added to CC and how in the future they would not have to hold them for a major release which was roughly a two year cycle. Those kinds of updates have not materialized. I have had CC for a year and far from a breakthrough every week as you say, instead it has been zero breakthroughs. The whole reason for this upcoming 6/18 circus is that they are “relaunching” CC even if they don’t call it that. Clearly they have not gotten the critical mass they anticipated. This is because the CC value proposition was weak at best and instead of under-promising and over-delivering, they have done the opposite. That is why they have to try and sex it up to get new subscribers.

        At the end of the day the whole reason that they are renting software is because the feature set is so rich now that many people have ceased to upgrade with every cycle. So now they want us on the hook for a perpetual revenue stream. There is essentially no benefit to the consumer at this point. All the “value adds” like Behance are a joke.

        Adobe has essentially a monopoly as far as imaging software is concerned, so people like me are stuck. Doesn’t mean I have to smile about it.

    • Ratty Mouse

      Absolutely true. All the adobe fan boys raved about how many upgrades and new features were coming with CC. That has NOT happened. Abode lied through their teeth and the rabid drooling fan boys ate it up like dogs eating sh!t.

      Adobe is as dishonest a company as you will ever find.

      • rt-photography

        thats why they were hacked. out of hatred for sure. cc was cracked the day it was released.

      • CHD

        Raty it seems like you have a hate on for anything Adobe or Fuji related…

  • Global

    For at least 4 years I’ve been asking for someone to make a “300-600mm” on this rumors site (actually also on NikonRumors), every time arguing the same thing (its just a 2x zoom & that we already have options to 300mm but its getting beyond that’s the trick in FX). It seems that somehow the rumor mill has picked this up, haha. I hope (for my sake) that Sigma really is listening! But somehow I think this is just sloppy reporting:
