Adobe: Cloud Access to CS-6
Today Adobe officially unveilled its Creative Suite 6 (CS6), with virtually all of its new professional applications including Photoshop6, InDesign6, Illustrator6, Premiere Pro6 and AfterEffects. Adobe also launched Creative Cloud, a major change in how Adobe is selling and marketing its flagship products – utilizing on-line cloud services.
Adobe’s Creative Cloud service includes full access to the CS 6 product line, including Photoshop CS6 for image editing, and Premiere Pro and After Effects CS6 for video editing.
The Creative Cloud also includes Adobe’s Touch line of tablet apps for the HTML5 era of Web design, Lightroom, and a some online services such as file sharing and Web site hosting. Users will be able to download and install these apps on up to two machines.
While the company will continue to offer a shrink-wrapped version of CS6, it’s also introducing a subscription service with this update. For $ 49/month with an annual subscription or $ 79/month for month-to-month memberships, users can now get full access to any CS6 tool, including Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro and AfterEffects. A Dropbox-like ability to sync files across Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android devices is included; subscriptions come with 20GB of storage space for the service.
Cheaper subscriptions are also available for individual titles such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premiere Pro. They can be had via subscription for $ 20 a month for the most part; the new Muse and Edge tools will cost $ 15 a month each.
Adobe also has a discounted plan for students that costs $ 30 a month. It requires a full-year commitment, but Adobe is considering a single-semester option.
