Two days ago, Adobe announced free CC apps for students and teachers. But it appears that the rest of us can now get two months of Adobe Creative Cloud for free. The latest offer on the company’s website enables you to get a free subscription for two months, and it’s pretty simple to get it if you’d like to try.
If you are a Canon camera and Mac computer user and rely on tethered shooting – don’t update to the latest version of macOS Catalina just yet. MacOS Catalina 10.15.2 doesn’t seem to support tethered shooting in Lightroom and other apps, and there’s currently no workaround.
Earlier in the week, Apple released macOS Catalina. But if you’re using Photoshop or Lightroom CC on your Mac, you may want to put the upgrade on hold. Adobe users have reported numerous problems with Photoshop and Lightroom after upgrading the system. And Adobe itself has confirmed that these two programs still aren’t compatible with the latest macOS.
A few days ago, Adobe discontinued older versions of some Creative Cloud apps. The company is now sending emails to its customers warning them of potential legal actions. That is, if you continue using these apps – you risk getting sued for infringement by third parties.
If this isn’t just a website glitch, then is going to upset one or two people. It appears that the $9.99 Photography plan for Creative Cloud has disappeared for US customers. You can still get a $9.99 package, but you won’t get Photoshop anymore. Oh, no. For that, you’ll be paying $19.99 instead.

A few days ago, Adobe had another price increase for its Creative Cloud programs. Annoyed by this change, Twitter user Ghost Malone created an extensive list of alternatives, in case you don’t feel like paying more for major Adobe CC programs. They cover different areas, from image editing to building websites, and all of them are free.
Starting on 16 April 2018, the price of Adobe Creative Cloud subscription will increase for certain subscription plans. On your renewal date, you will need to pay more for the plan you’re using. But there’s the good news too: Creative Cloud Photography plan remains the same. If you’re paying for a different subscription plan, you’ll see the price increase with your next renewal.
If you are still not on the Adobe subscription model maybe this is the deal that will flip you. Adobe usually bundles Photoshop CC + Lightroom in what they call a “Photography Plan”. This plan usually sells for $9.99/month (or 119.88/year). Even if you are a student, the price stays the same.
Now Amazon has a deal for a yearly subscription for $94.99. This is about $25 off the usual price and I don’t think I’ve ever seen it this cheap before.
So if you are still on the fence, go and grab this deal before it is gone.
