One of Adobe’s newest offerings, known as Creative Cloud, is gaining quite a bit of attention as Adobe has recently disclosed the offering’s details, including its very attractive pricing. For those that are unfamiliar, Creative Cloud is a cloud-based service that was announced by Adobe last October alongside the release of new apps for tablet platforms. It offers a web-based storage center for syncing content between a user’s devices, along with all of the upcoming Creative Suite 6 apps, Adobe Touch apps and services, and the newest content from Adobe (such as new products and features) as soon as they are publicly released. This includes Lightroom 4 once it gets out of beta, and Adobe’s new Muse and Edge web authoring software.
All of these great things come at quite the cost, however, starting at a steep $49.99/month fee. This is certainly justified, though, considering how much a license for Creative Suite apps such as Adobe’s Photoshop (or even the entire suite, which usually sold for approximately $2,000) have cost in the past. $600 for a year’s worth of use will definitely beat out the cost of buying licenses for these apps the old way, and with additional offerings such as the 20GB of cloud storage. Businesses will be paying more, as expected, for volume licensing which will be going for $69.99/month.
Aside from all of Creative Cloud’s great offerings and unbeatable price, it is also attractive for its software update delivery system and its allowance of up to two computers to run the CS6 apps on a single license.
Adobe’s Creative Cloud and Creative Suite 6 should be releasing side by side within the next few months.
