Adobe Photoshop CC is Now Available For Download

A few weeks after the announcement of Photoshop CC (Creative Cloud) at Adobe Max, Adobe has finally made the newest installment of the Photoshop series available to the general public. If you've already adapted to the Creative Cloud service, you should be getting your notification for the update any second now, if you haven't already. For those resisting the cloud, this software is not available for you.

The most notable new feature to Photoshop CC is the Shake Reduction filter, which is found in Sharpen menu of Filters. This feature allows you to remove some of the blur that comes from shooting at a slow shutter speed and moving your camera ever so slightly. And while the filter isn't perfect, its able to fix some of your photos that may otherwise be unfixable. Another new feature that we're excited about is Adobe Camera Raw as a filter, which lets you access the Raw control panel once already inside Photoshop.

Other notable features are Smart Sharpen upgrade, Dynamic round corners for shapes, smart object liquify, 3D layer enhancements and more. For a full list of new features, check out our rundown from Adobe MAX, or head over to

It's 19.99 for one year, the price could go up or down. If they raise it to some crazy amount, I'll go back to CS4.... at this point, there is no other option if you want the latest and greatest.....But so far, I am loving Photoshop CC, a huge upgrade from where I was (CS4)

They claim it's for the first year, but I imagine that price won't change. They're already getting enough flak for the Cloud based service.

As for the cloud, I was really resistant when they first announced it, but I installed it yesterday and I really like it. I had no idea that Adobe made so many products, and when you take all of that into account, it makes the cloud system a no brainer.

Flak is irrelevant unless it affects profits. Adobe's customers are their shareholders. Everyone else can suck it.

I agree, I also doubt it will go up this first round.... I think much of the flak is coming from the same misconception I had... I thought the program itself ran from the cloud (like some of microsofts products) and was under the impression that my files HAD to be stored on Adobe servers....So far, I love PS CC

"...except you pay $19.99 a month—for eternity"

As oppose to paying $400+ every 18 months....for eternity.

It's $240.00 a year to always have the latest and greatest software. Compared to my other business expenses, this is a no brainer

no you don´t... you pay more then 19,99 in a year... and even more in the year after that.

yes the only thing that is in the clouds is your money, when you stop paying you are left with nothing!

Crack arriving in t- 10...9...8

it´s already cracked.. who cares what adobes does....

Uhm...the entire graphics design world?

pirates don´t care.. that´s for sure.
they are not affected by the cloud nonsense.

So for you folks who have upgraded, how's the performance compared to CS5/CS6? I'm running a '09 MBP with 8gb of RAM and wondering if I'm going to be ok with the update.

I'm on a 2010 MB with 4g of RAM and it runs noticeably faster than CS6 did.

people report the crack is working fine......
i wonder how hard this will hit adobe. i know a few who will not udpate and some will use warez.
but maybe the morons of this world will balance that......

Adobe : 0
Pirates :1

Complaining about how Adobe has decided to charge for their products is pointless. If you don't like it, stick to your older software. When it becomes too outdated just switch to the viable competitors product... Oh wait, there is no one making software as versatile as Photoshop. I guess you just have to suck it up.

Adobe made a serious mistake here. The same mistake the games industry did with a lot of the DRM. Customers had to download cracks to be able to use their software without a CD (for example) or for the software to operate at all. Punishing people who buy their software by putting limitations in the software that the "freeloaders" do not have. Photojournalists that spend long times without Internet connections or people like me who spend most of the summer in remote location where there is no cell phone coverage, much less Internet connections. Adobe basically tells us either to use their old versions (Like CS6) or buy CC and install a crack to be able to use the software we are willing to pay for. I don't mind paying a monthly fee. I think it's a great idea, but having to connect to the Internet, or "forcing me" to do it goes against the entire idea of software liberty (I buy a license, I want to be able to use the software how, where, and when I like, not be limited by some corporate ideas). Perhaps if a large enough consumer base shows Adobe they made a mistake, they will change their too rigid policies.

36,000 folks have signed.They don't like Adobe CC licensing.Show @Adobe how you feel.

Another more fiscal way to show @Adobe you dont like the CC licensing scheme. #adobe2014 ..
