Photographers be sure to read the Terms & Conditions with Photoshop & Lightroom CC from Adobe

Photographers should take notice of the Terms & Conditions regarding the recently offered Photoshop Creative Cloud and Lightroom 5 bundle they are currently offering to those who own Photoshop C3 or later.

The current offer lets you sign up to a monthly subscription for $9.99 per month if you register before December 31, 2013 and includes Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5. Adobe has promised that the $9.99 is “not an introductory price. It is the price for those of you who sign up by December 31, 2013”. Many photogs are excited about this $9.99 per month BUT we need to read the Terms & Conditions because there seems to be some confusion.

Vintage Coca Cola – an old soda refrigerator

I found this old Coke refrigerator next to an old wood wagon and some prickly pear cactus in Northern New Mexico near Santa Fe and Taos. In fact I photographed this with my students during a photo workshop Christine and I were teaching in Santa Fe/Taos in 2011.

While this was photographed in 2011, I didn’t process and enhance the photo until spring of 2012.

Adobe takes a crack at getting Photographers back with new Photoshop Photographer Program

I guess I have to give credit where credit is due.

Adobe yesterday announced a new subscription plan for photographers interested in only using Photoshop and Lightroom. Called the Adobe Photoshop Photography Program, it certainly is an improvement over their initial subscription plans. With the uproar Adobe created in the photo community since their announcement in May this is the first stab Adobe has had at repairing the damage they created with photographers.

If you own a previous version of Photoshop CS3 or newer and start your subscription before the end of the year you can qualify for their $9.99 (plus tax) per month subscription offer for photographers. This “introductory offer” includes Photoshop CC, Lightroom 5, Behance Membership, and 20GB of cloud storage. But you must sign up for it before December 31st. You will have to wait a couple weeks to sign up on this offer. Once Lightroom 5.2 is announced in a couple weeks you can then take advantage of this.

But while this is certainly an improvement I wouldn’t go so far as to say “Photographers Rejoice” as PetaPixel did. There are still some issues with the subscription model and as such I am still not confident in recommending it to photographers who do not make their full living off of photography.
