Adobe has offered an olive branch to photographers and reduced the Photoshop CC price tag.
Adobe unveiled its new Photoshop Photography Program special offer at the Photoshop World conference in Las Vegas, which is open to photographers who own Photoshop CS3 or higher.
This new subscription plan was designed to be more affordable following a wave of complaints from photographers who said that a full membership subscription to Adobe’s Creative Cloud was too expensive.
The Photoshop Photography Program special membership offer is priced at £8.78 / $9.99 per month and includes the following
– Photoshop CC
– Lightroom 5
– 20 GB of online storage
– Behance ProSite
– Access to Creative Cloud Learn’s training resources
– Ongoing upgrades and updates

However, this membership offer is only valid at the new rate until 31 December 2013.
An Adobe spokesperson says: “To be clear, £8.78 is not an introductory price. It is the price for those of you who sign up by December 31, 2013. This offer will be available at the same time we introduce the new version of Lightroom 5.2 in a couple weeks.”
For photographers with CS3 or later versions who are paying the original £27.34 / $20 monthly subscription plan, you will be automatically switched to the new cheaper rate.
