Adobe Creative Cloud

The Sky’s the Limit With Adobe Creative Cloud

Adobe Systems moved away from the desktop and into the clouds when they released the Adobe Creative Cloud to consumers on May 11. Creative Cloud’s intent is to give users a more accessible and streamlined experience when creating with Adobe applications. One of the best perks? Cloud users pay a relatively low monthly subscription fee and will always have the latest software upgrades and features.

“Adobe Creative Cloud members receive full access to the entire portfolio of Creative Suite 6 tools, integration with our touch tools, file storage and sharing services and Web hosting – everything they need to go from idea to finished work, at a breakthrough monthly subscription price,” David Wadhwani, Adobe senior vice president of Digital Media Business said.

The Goods on Creative Cloud:

A subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud will get you access to all CS6 applications including industry standards Photoshop, Premiere and Flash Professional as well as Adobe Muse and Adobe Edge. Creatives get 20gb of file storage with their monthly subscription and will be able to view, access and share their creative work on any device – including tablets – from virtually anywhere in the world. Cloud users have the option to pay a month-to-month subscription fee of $74.99, or they can opt to sign an annual contract, which will get them everything the Creative Cloud has to offer for $49.99 a month. Students, teachers and creatives who already have a year’s contract to CS3 or later versions, can take advantage of the introductory $29.99 a month price when they sign a one-year contract.

Should you head to the Cloud?

For a lot of creatives, deciding whether or not to get in on the cloud will depend on their pricing and creative needs. The CS6 Master Collection can costs upwards of $2,000, which makes the price of a monthly subscription to the Cloud seem even better. But if you already own an Adobe Photoshop license and don’t need any of the other applications the Cloud has to offer, you’re probably best just staying put with what you have, especially if upgrades don’t interest you.

Another thing to note is that users of the Adobe Creative Cloud don’t really own the software; essentially, they’re renting it. This means if you are unable to pay your monthly subscription, you risk losing access to the software and your files.

But, if you’re looking for a relatively low-priced way to get in on all the programs Adobe has to offer, the Creative Cloud is a great option. We’ve been trying out the Cloud at Ilfusion and so far have been really happy with its features. What about you?
