While it has been around for a while through limited-time offers, Adobe’s Photography plan is now a permanent part of the company’s Creative Cloud offering. For $10 every month, you can subscribe to the Creative Cloud to get Adobe Bridge, Photoshop CC and Lightroom, with compatibility to the desktop apps, as well as the mobile Photoshop Mix and Lightroomfor iPad, plus 20GB of free online storage.
But that’s not even the big news today; it’s more of an entire overhaul, in fact.
Just about the entire Creative Cloud platform has been updated for the 2014 year, inlcuding Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, Dreamweaver CC, and Premiere Pro CC, in addition to a batch of new mobile apps.
For Photoshop (as an example), the Mercury Graphics Engine has been improved, increasing the app’s speed, while also adding blur effects and a Focus Mask tool that recreates the Bokeh effect, with background defocus. There’s also better usability on Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 tablets, namely the Surface Pro 3.
As for pricing for the rest of the creativity suite: the entire Creative Cloud is now 49.99 per month or $599.98 for an entire year, along with a new $19.99 per month plan for students.
Nicely done, Adobe.
