CS out, CC in. No longer the Creative Suite, a big expensive box you
pirate pick up from a specialty retailer, Adobe announced today that they’re done with the box strategy; they want to move everything to the cloud. This also means you’ll save money buying Photoshop, Flash, Illustrator and all those other Adobe tools you love. Seriously, it’s true.
$49.99 seems like a nice sum to pay every single month for tools that you may use every day, but there are a lot of attractive sides. For one, you’re getting all of Adobe’s programs – which is far too many for me! – and you’re getting their latest additions. There was something so infuriating about having to purchase the Creative Suite every year and a half to get all the best features. Now, you just pay a subscription. Done, that’s it! If you’re a student, and I totally understand how this goes, but you can even get it for $19.99 a month for non-commercial purposes. I definitely wish I had that when I was in college.
