How much we pay for Adobe's move to cloud
Adobe Photoshop and the all Creative Suite applications just made a move to cloud. Adobe decided to discontinue software you can actually buy so they can force you to rent the applications for a monthly fee.
As we can read here: https://creative.adobe.com/plans/offer/photoshop+lightroom
"For a limited time, you can join a special Creative Cloud photography plan designed exclusively for Photoshop customers. It includes access to Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5, plus feature updates and upgrades as they are available, 20GB of cloud storage for file sharing and collaboration, and a Behance ProSite. And it's just €12,29/month when you sign up for a one-year plan, but you need to join by February 28, 2014. To qualify, you must own a commercial version of Photoshop CS3 or later (Standard or Extended version, as a stand-alone product or as part of a suite)."
So, what will you have to pay?
If you own Creative Suite 3, 4, 5, or 5.5, you'll pay $30 per month for the first year and $50 per month after that.
If you own Creative Suite 6, you'll pay $20 per month for the first year and $50 per month after that.
If you don't own Creative Suite or own an older version, you'll pay $50 per month.
If you're a student or educator, you'll pay $20 per month for the first year if you sign up before June 25th. After June 25th, or after your first year, you'll pay $30 per month.
If you just want access to single apps, like Photoshop, you'll pay $20 per month per app.
Current pricing may cause confusion due to the discounts, but in the future (after July 31st, 2013) you'll pay $50 per month as a normal person and $30 per month as a student or educator. (source - lifehacker.com)
