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.
If you still run an older version of Windows or MacOS and use Adobe CC programs, we have some bad news. Adobe has announced that the next major Creative Cloud update will no longer support older versions of operating systems, such as Windows 7, 8 and even some versions of Windows 10.
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.
