The cheapest way to get Photoshop CC is to get the PS-CC+LR bundle for $10/month, available for a limited time, otherwise a single-app subscription is $20/month.
Support hasn't changed, just these forums, phone and chat support in India that generally ignores what you say that isn't answering to their scripted responses.
First and foremost, if you want to try the software before purchasing or signing up for a membership, you can download and try our software free:
Creative Cloud, Elements & Lightroom: http://www.adobe.com/downloads.html
CS6 products: http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/cs6-product-downloads.html
Your best bet is the Photoshop Photography Program which gives you Photoshop CC, Lightroom, Lightroom mobile and Bridge CC for $9.99/mo
For some customers, Photoshop Elements is a better option. It's a very powerful version of Photoshop for non-pros is available for only $99.
Where is standalone Photoshop?? I don't want creative cloud!.
I have PS CS4. Is there any way to upgrade to another standalone Photoshop version? I do NOT want Creative Cloud. I'm a single user - hobbyist - without any need for sharing, with a lousy internet connection. I want to use and retain all of my software locally. This move to creative cloud will cause me to switch to Corel products, if I can't upgrade to another standalone version.
Why cant I buy photo shop as a single payment and then just have it?
I don't want to buy into a monthly plan and then in 12 months and 1 day loose the ability to use photoshop. I understand you want people to pay for all the latest versions and keep paying regularly but it eliminates non professional users who want to have the product to use it irregularly. I also didn't like accidentally going onto the US website to see you can just buy it there without an annoying monthly plan (Not when it costs less than 1 years annual monthly payments over here).
This is all very weird and has changed my view on what Adobe and photoshop is all about?
Great product, easy to use, for creative types, friendly and inspiring? Its actually just another corporation trying to find the best way to get the most amount of money that it can.
I might be over reacting but I think it is stupid that I cant just buy the product and update it as and when I want or even buy the latest version when i feel the need to.
I have used the program. It is NOT worth a thousand dollars, and this arrangement is clearly geared as a product made for businesses who make their livelihood using the program, not people. This makes a huge wall that discourages new users, who were expecting a norma, sane one-time purchase of a program for a reasonable price, and are instead sticker-shocked into running the other direction.
There has got to be a better solution for casual users like myself. I just want a powerful tool to color my art, without being obligated to use it, or pay out-of-pocket every time I want to. If Adobe can't help me, then someone please direct me to a company who still cares.
Any company that forces their customers to go to a competitor does not care about their true customers.
I want to buy photoshop to use it for my photography business. The way I understand it is I have to pay each month or I pay each year. Is there any way to just pay once and be done paying for it?
I am also a hobbyist, occasionally using photoshop to sell my work but I cannot justify owning Photoshop CC as I don't use it everyday.
I have been trying to figure how what to do since the launch of the new Photoshop CC, a product that I, begrudgingly bought into and do not use every day.
Are there any updates about these issues???
Let’s be honest: Some software upgrades are necessary, and others are just nice to have. Upgrading from Creative Suite 6 to Adobe Creative Cloud falls into the first category: It’s essential.
CS6 is almost three years old, and Adobe has no plans to update it. Ever. In contrast, Creative Cloud features all the latest creative software, including more than 500 features that have been added since 2012. Want the latest version of Photoshop or Illustrator? You need to join to Creative Cloud.
Yes, you can still buy CS6 products by calling an Adobe call center, but why would you? The features in Creative Cloud will take your creativity further, with more ways to create, collaborate, and share. To purchase by phone, call 800-585-0774.
Note: Creative Suite 6 is no longer available for online purchase. To get the latest versions of your favorite creative tools, click here to join the Creative Cloud. To purchase Creative Suite 6 by phone, call 800-585-0774.
Well then. Fml. I'm actually really upset. Goodbye, digital art :'(
А мне интересно, почему у Фотошопа просто грабительские цены? Почему "в месяц"? Почему не сразу и навсегда? И не будут-ли идти мои деньги на поддержание мерзости, популярной в Европе и Америке? Почему у вас такие грабительские цены? Вы-компания-русофоб, и задираете цены для Русских?
