Photoshop's future: Adobe ditches $2,599 price tag for $50 subscriptions
Effective immediately, Adobe will offer its design and development tools under the banner of Creative Cloud. The fee? 50 bucks a month
A decade ago, Adobe Systems introduced Creative Suite, a collection of design and development applications. Today, the San Jose, Calif., company announced it would effectively do away with Creative Suite, and replace it with Creative Cloud, a $50-a-month subscription service that will include all the familiar Adobe staples, including Illustrator, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and InDesign.
Creative Suite 6, the last major iteration of the Creative Suite line, was released in 2011. But according to Adobe, in the future, all Adobe tools will be released under the Creative Cloud banner. "We have no current plans to release another perpetual release of the CS tools and suites," Scott Morris, senior director of product marketing for Creative Cloud, told CNET in an interview. "Creative Cloud is going to be our sole focus moving forward."
