As pointed out by PetaPixel, Adobe’s Creative Cloud for Photoshop and Lightroom subscription plans now start at $19.99/month as the previous $9.99/month plan can no longer be found on the company’s website.
Adobe first offered a $9.99/month Creative Cloud bundle of Photoshop and Lightroom back in 2013 as a special limited time deal, but since the plan was so popular among photographers, Adobe continued offering it as a permanent option after the deal expired.
However, $9.99/month for 20GB of storage has now vanished for many customers and only the $19.99/month with 1TB cloud storage is being offered. An Adobe representative has also confirmed that the $10 plan is no longer being offered to all customers.
Luckily though, there’s still a trick that lets you subscribe to the old $9.99/month for 20GB plan:
Simply contact Adobe Sales through phone (866-493-4989) or the online chat (the chat bubble in the bottom right corner of the page) and they can still sell you the $10/month plan (for now).
The rep tells PetaPixel that the $20/month minimum price hasn’t been set in stone yet, and there’s no word on whether or not Adobe will be making it a permanent price hike that’ll double the software cost for photographers.
For now, the old $10/month plan can also be subscribed through this direct link.
