Adobe Photoshop CC has been released for download, as the popular photo-editing program is now an exclusive part of the company’s Creative Cloud.
Adobe has decided to kill its Creative Suite in favor of Creative Cloud, which provides the same functionality, but it is based on a monthly subscription business model.
Adobe Photoshop CC released for download alongside multiple other Creative Cloud apps
Adobe Photoshop CC and other Creative Cloud applications will continue to receive new features, while the CS apps will only get minor upgrades, in order to support new cameras and lenses.
Since all the new features will be available in Creative Cloud, Adobe is hoping that it is going to get a lot more money out of it, considering the fact that a single application costs $19.99 per month, if the user agrees to a 12-month contract.
The entire suite of cloud-based programs is available for $49.99, but only with a one-year agreement, as stated above. Month-to-month plans are available for $74.99.
There are some special offers for existing customers, but they will only be available at the company’s website until July 31, so potential users might want to hurry up to get the deal, unless they want to wait for the new pricing plans.
Creative Cloud apps will receive the latest and best features
Adobe Photoshop CC comes packed with a number of impressive features, including the Camera Shake Reduction tool, which is also known as the deblurring filter, and Smart Sharpen, a tool capable of significantly improving the colors and textures in an image.
The latest version of Adobe Camera RAW 8 is also available with the Advanced Healing Brush, Upright Tool, and Radial Gradient features. These will definitely make your photos better, as long as you know what you are doing.
Want to sync photos across mobile devices? Get Adobe CC
Creative Cloud subscribers are getting Behance support. Photoshop CC users can sync and organize their image collection on smartphones and tablets.
Access to more than 200 tutorials is included in the deal. These guides will teach users how to make use of the new applications among others.
Regardless of the public outcry, Adobe Photoshop CC and other Creative Cloud apps are now live and this business model will remain in place for years to come.
