How does Adobe Creative Cloud actually work?

The Adobe Creative Cloud – how it works and why its a benefit to everybody who wants to use industry standard creative software

I have heard a lot of negative comments and anger about the Adobe Creative Cloud from users of Adobe software. I just want to explain why I think the new pricing structure will change the way all software is purchased in the future…

Before the Adobe Creative Cloud came along if you wanted to buy Adobe Photoshop to edit some images you would be paying £600-£700 for an individual licence, then after 6-12 months there would be a newer version released where you would have to pay extra to upgrade! This of course was all before you had even opened the software and began to learn it!

If you buy Adobe Photoshop today through the Adobe Creative Cloud you will pay between £12-£14 for the programme per month on a subscription basis, this means there are no big up front costs and the beauty of it is you will always get the latest version of the software, it will automatically update itself when there is a new version!

This new pricing model from Adobe has revolutionised the way software is purchased, making an array of creative tools accessible to more people than ever, the highest subscription package for the Adobe Creative Cloud is £38 + VAT (£45.60) and with this you will have access to every piece of software in the Adobe Creative Cloud portal – this covers everything from print design to video editing and website design packages.

In fact if you already have any older versions of the Creative Suite – there might be a special discount scheme running from Adobe to upgrade to Adobe Creative Cloud if you check out their website.

You can even download a free 30 day trial of the Creative Cloud from their website.

So what is stopping you from downloading and getting started with some amazing creative software, take the plunge and learn something new today!
