Creative Cloud for Photographers is Live

During the keynote at Photoshop World, Adobe announced that they would launch a new Creative Cloud plan for photographers and that it would launch about the same time that the Lightroom 5.2 update was ready. Today I saw that Adobe had released Lightroom 5.2 (and Camera Raw 8.2) and so I decided to take a peek at the Creative Cloud site to see if there were any updates. Sure enough, when I went to the Creative Cloud Membership Plan page, there it was, the Creative Cloud plan for Photoshop customers. I was a little confused by the name because everyone has been calling it the Photoshop for photographers or some variation there of but if you look at the details, it’s definitely the right plan – Photoshop CC, Lightroom, 20GB of online storage, and a Behance membership for $9.99 with a sign-up deadline of December 31. Of course there is also the stipulation that you must own a copy of Photoshop CS3 or later to qualify. This is definitely the deal and it is active for anyone looking to join. I just updated my Camera Raw and Lightroom so I will probably hold off on the deal until later this year but I will most definitely be signing up before the deadline. I’m not going to get into the pros or cons of the Creative Cloud. There are plenty of articles that have done this and plenty of opinions voiced about it (check out Scott Kelby’s take along with all of the comments). All I know is that this is a deal that works for me and I am looking forward to getting all the Photoshop CC updates and and everything else that comes with it.

If you want to check out the membership page to see all of the Creative Cloud options or head straight to the Photoshop Photography Program sign-up page.


  1. I know this has been around for a while, but I’ve been holding off as it wasn’t too long ago that I purchased CS6. However, I’m liking the look of the new anti shake ability as occasionally shots inside the church (wedding photographer here) have small amounts of movement.

    I would be really interested to hear what people are thinking about the new features that are out there now to see if it is worth starting a subscription.
