$9.99 12 month CC discount prices for holders of valid photoshop CS licenses

$9.99 per month with one year prescription for photoshop CC almost seems reasonable.

Re: 12 month CC discount prices for holders of valid CS licenses

That information is correct Tom. If all you want is Photoshop CC and you have any version from CS3 to CS6 you will be able to get Photoshop CC for 9.99 per month under an annual agreement and it will run right along side of your current version of the CS product. They are offering this promotion for a single purchase only (it can be installed on two machines) from what I understand and this offer will expire on July 31, 2013 and can be changed without any prior notification. After your annual agreement period is up the annual monthly fee will return to normal pricing which at this point would be 19.99 per month on an annual agreement.

If you are a current registered CS6 user and if you would like to move up to the entire CC Suite there is also an annual promotion for that and it is priced at 19.99 per month and then after that year expires you will then be back into current normal pricing range. For users of versions prior to CS6 down to CS3 this same annual promotion for the entire Cloud Suite is being made available for 29.99 per month.

Good or bad, it would appear that Adobe is moving forward with this program.

My 99 year old father is fond of telling the story of when he was a little boy his mother would have him check the prices of vegetables that the peddlers were selling. If the price did not meet with his mother's approval she would advise him to tell the peddler that at his prices he could take the produce to his home and eat it himself. Sure enough within one to two days the peddler's prices returned to normal.

Please note the discount offer that adobe offered NAPP member just six months ago.  Obviously they could not entice enough early adapters and have lowered their pricing structure to entice the mass of adobe users.

"DEC 12, 2012

Adobe would like to invite all NAPP members to become a part of Creative Cloud, no matter what version of Photoshop they use, with a very special offer. From now until May 31, 2013, you can sign up for Creative Cloud for the introductory price of $29.99/month for the first year and waive the version requirement.

This means that you can make the hyper-jump to CS6!"

The moral of the story is that one should consider holding out till the adobe deal becomes more acceptable or move on to other companies' offerings.

I agree that adobe is going forward with the cloud program.

However it is up to adobe's user base to determine fair market value, by either leasing the cloud program or not.

Worked out great for me as my daughter requires Photoshop for her school term starting now. Called Adobe they advised that you could install on two computers with only one having access at anyone time. Since I for one, an occasional user, this works out great at $9.99 / month. Since most use LR or other as the principal & Photoshop to address those occasional situations there maybe an opportunity for others to do the same.

Re: 12 month CC discount prices for holders of valid CS licenses

So what is the best software program to buy (not rent) to do what I've been using Photoshop since 2003 to do?

First of all, CS6 is far from eol.

Secondly, I upgraded to CS6 at the end of last year to keep my upgrade path alive - ha. Adobe said I had to. Remember that? So that's $200 I've already spent that I didn't need to, since they're now offering the same subscription price to CS3 users, which I was. That's kind of adding insult to injury, ya know?

I already use other Raw converters - ASP and PhotoNinja. But as a matter of general info, I tested my Photoshop plugins like Topaz in Corel PhotoPaint and they work just fine and exactly like they do in PS. So any future money I spend will go to Corel at this point. I prefer CorelDraw to Adobe Illustrator anyway, and PP comes free with CD.

The $9.95 is an introductory price, $120 the first year, but year two will almost for sure be $19.95 per month. What will you do in year 3 when they raise to $29.95 - complain. I am sure they will be as kind as the crack distributor.

Leaving aside the issues of what's a fair price, I wonder seriously if Adobe hasn't opened itself to a class action suit there. Many of us must have done the same thing, based on their representations that we would in the future only be able to upgrade from one version back. The clear implication was that there would be an upgrade to CS6, and we would need to own CS6 to buy CS7 at a discount. Sounds like deliberate misrepresentation to me...

Good point.  I also might not have upgraded if they hadn't told me it would be only one version back.  Then again, CS6 is now my last version of PS, so it's fine that I've had the use of it for a while.  I WILL NOT rent software until there are NO OTHER options.  Right now there are.

This is MUCH more expensive than buying.  It's like leasing your car.  More expensive in the end, less per month.

The problem is, that as of cs4, Adobe only fixed bugs in upgrades, so if you have bugs in cs6 you need to upgrade in order to get them fixed....
