I just received an email from a trusted source (Mark S. Johnson Photography www.msjphotography.com) who related the following: Friends, After all of the recent grumbling about Photoshop Creative Cloud pricing, Adobe has finally listened to photographers and come up with a plan that gives us all reason to keep being creative! Yesterday at Photoshop World, Adobe announced a Creative Cloud membership plan designed exclusively for photographers and priced just right. Here's an excerpt from their press release: "Since introducing Photoshop CC we’ve listened to feedback from a spectrum of our customers, from advanced professionals to casual enthusiasts. One common request was a solution specifically tailored for photographers. We listened and at Photoshop World we’re announcing a special offer for our loyal Photoshop customers. 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 (pricing varies outside of the US): Photoshop CC Lightroom 5 20 GB of online storage Behance ProSite Access to the online video tutorials in Creative Cloud This is the ongoing price for anyone who signs up by December 31, 2013. So if you sign up in October 2013, then when you renew in October 2014, the price will still be $9.99 per month. We do not currently have any intention of raising this price." Adobe has announced that this offer will become available in a few weeks. When it is, I'll make an announcement on MSJPhotography, or you can check out the Adobe site to learn when the offer goes live. Best! Mark Mark S. Johnson Photography Back to my question: As a former CS5 owner I reluctantly bit the bullet and updated a single application, i.e. to Photoshop CC, before Adobe's last deadline of July 31st under a contract of $9.99 per month for the first year then jumping to $20 per month thereafter. Now, will I, as a "loyal PhotoShop customer", be eligible for the new $9.99 per month forever plan? I haven't contacted Adobe about this as the new plan is not posted on their website as of yet. Any thoughts? I'm sure a bunch of us are in the same boat.
