Only available to paying Creative Cloud members, the CC desktop apps, which include Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, InDesign CC, Adobe Muse CC, Dreamweaver CC, Edge Animate CC, Adobe Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC and many more, pack hundreds of new features not found in the CS6 versions and allow you to keep everything “synced and organized across your desktop, website, and mobile device.”
For individuals, subscription costs $19.99 per month for a single app and $49.99 per month for the entire suite ($74.99 without annual commitment), with existing Creative Suite (CS3 or later) customers eligible for discounts on both as long as they are willing to make an annual commitment. Likewise, for a limited period only, Adobe is offering the “Complete” plan to student and teachers at discounted prices: $19.99 per month for individual users and $39.99 per month per user for teams. Where teams and businesses are concerned, the Complete plan costs $69.99 per month per user ($39.99/month per user for existing CS users).
“We’ve added a ton of new innovation to all our CC desktop apps like Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. These apps include new features that increase productivity, streamline the effort to build mobile content and showcase some stunning new imaging and video science. And in addition to the traditional areas of innovation these apps are now connected to the powerful publishing and community features integral to the Creative Cloud experience,” said David Wadhwani, senior vice president and general manager, Digital Media, Adobe. “And with even more great updates coming to Creative Cloud throughout the year, we can’t wait to see the incredible work our customers are going to deliver.”
Those who can do without all the latest features can stick to Creative Suite 6, which the company currently intends to continue selling “indefinitely.”
