Next month, Adobe is raising the price of its Creative Cloud subscription plans for the first time in five years.
As Adobe announced in October 2017, after April 16 of this year, those who are subscribed to the All Apps plan, Individual Single App plans, or Creative Cloud for Teams All Apps plan will see increases on their bill at their next annual renewal date.
While the price increases are modest — single app subscriptions will increase $1 per month, the All Apps plan will go up $3 per month, and the All Apps for Teams getting the short straw and going up $10 per month — those who are already not happy with the initial switch to the Creative Cloud subscription model will not find peace with this.
Adobe clarified in an email to DPReview that the Creative Cloud Photography plan and Student/Education plans will not see a price change at this time.
Fortunately, since the time Adobe’s Creative Cloud was first announced, much more comparable alternatives to popular applications such as Photoshop and Lightroom have been released.
Is now the time to seriously consider the one-time fee alternatives? Or is this minor price increase of little concern? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
