Adobe Moves Closer To The Cloud With $10/Month Photoshop And Lightroom Package

The digital world is here, and there's really no getting around it. In the gaming sector, physical media still rules, and in the movie realm, Blu-ray Discs are still selling. But the digital creep is happening. Netflix and streaming outfits are dominating, and even software outfits such as Steam are doing quite well in moving software over mere tubes. Adobe is a major software player that has promised to fully commit to the cloud by the end of next year, giving us one less boxed package to consider in the future.

In the meanwhile, it has just launched a low-priced entry into its renowned services. The Photography Program will cost users $9.99/month (if you get in by December), offering users cloud access to Photoshop CC, Lightroom 5, 20GB of online storage and a Behance Membership with ProSite. The Creative Cloud package unlocks even more, but that starts at a whopping $50/month, making it a bit steep for novices who only need these services for personal use.

It seems that Adobe is having success with its cloud approach, and it'll surely be a benchmark for other software outfits to consider. Regardless, it's the way of the future, and honestly, this deal sounds like one that wouldn't have been possible in a physical universe.

Adobe's greed and paranoia are destroying whatever brand loyalty we had left. Renting software??? Pass. I'll buy the upgrade to CS6 for my Production Premium bundle and then Adobe can go fornicate a modem.

Now make $30/mo bundle packages like the retail packages and we will be going somewhere. Good start though!

The entry level $9.99 package is great, but then they screw it up by making the next level so expensive. This doesn't surprise me at all.

I admit that this deal half-tempts me. But I own CS5.5 Design Premium... so I don't even think I'm eligible to upgrade to JUST Photoshop CC like this.
