Adobe Creative Cloud Glitch Locks Out Users from Apps

Creative Cloud Error

Adobe is on a road to a most epic of fails. Imagine you have a deadline for delivering a project that is due in a few hours but your legally-purchased software won’t allow you to open it. That is the sad truth for users of Adobe’s Creative Cloud for the past day.

Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 for $9.99/mo Extended Again

Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom Creative Cloud Deal

I wish Adobe would just go ahead and make this a permanent deal, but for now the Photoshop Photography Program, which includes Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5, for $9.99/mo has been extended through May 31, 2014.

There are no limitations for prior software ownership to join at this rate (as there have been in the past). You can sign up for the Photoshop Photography Program here on Adobe’s website.

(At the time of this post, Adobe’s site still has the offer end date as March 31; however, I have official confirmation from Adobe that the deal is extended through May 31.)

Photoshop Photography Program Extended (Again) Through Feb. 28

Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom Creative Cloud Deal

Adobe is beating this dead horse into the ground. I have lost count of how many times the Photoshop Photography Program has been extended.  This time, however, the deal is only available for those who own CS3 or later products, but the price remains $9.99/mo. And, yes, I do actually think this is a good deal, but Adobe is killing me with the on again/off again routine.

The Photoshop Photography Program offers access to Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 (plus respective feature updates and upgrades as they are available), 20GB of cloud storage and Behance ProSite, via Adobe Creative Cloud for $9.99/month as an annual subscription.

You can find more details here on Adobe’s website.
