    Hello, for a limited time, you can get Photoshop and Lightroom for less than 10$/Month, by using this link:

    https://creative.adobe.com/?sdid=KIHZP#plans/offer/photoshop+lightroom

    Plus you get a Behance ProSite worth 100$/year, 20Gb of online storage.

     

    A French site made the math, it would take 7 years and 4 months of subscription to match the price of a new "perpetual" license of Photoshop and Lightroom (but here, you always have the latest version!)

    Pierre,

     

    That would require that the $10 subscription price  remain in effect for the full 7 years and 4 months—which we all know is totally unrealistic.  The wording of the offer is such that it practically guarantees that the monthly cost will go up after 12 months:

     

    Renewal
    After the first 12 months, we will automatically renew your contract based on the current price of the offering.

    Ah ah!

    That offer is not like the rebate for the first year of Creative Cloud "full" edition.

    They do not intend to change the price, but cannot legally state it, if for instance, they need to factor in inflation, or a big conversion rate change for abroad.

    ProDesign tools goes even further to describe the price: http://prodesigntools.com/adobe-black-friday-ps-lr-offer.html#more-511 40

    Well, I don't share your optimistic faith in the good intentions of Adobe management when the 12 months are up.  They have left the door open, and I'm sure they will have no compunction to use that legally open door.

    It might be optimism, but changing the price would mean shooting themselves in the foot.

    Adobe has been clear that this is the regular ongoing price for the program, and they have no plans to raise it.

    Since first introduced 7 years ago, the pricing of Adobe's subscription offerings have only ever gone down.

    You don't think they'll want to increase the subscriber base next year?

     

    Adobe carefully executed this so that $9.95 / month looks like a steal, when it's really just the same price all those who were "hooked" before were paying for each new version release.

     

    And let's not forget that you'll have bought Adobe stock with the money you didn't spend on that perpetual license.

    Hi Noel,

     

    Well, for PS Extended this plan totals to less than the old way for most customers – Extended upgrades cost $399 and LR upgrades cost $79.

     

    Also as Pierre noted, it's tons cheaper for those that didn't have the base software ($999+$149) to begin with.

     

    (not counting the other things included like Behance, storage, etc)

    True.

     

    I believe most customers didn't use Extended, though.  Photoshop 3D is a pretty specialized subsystem.  That said, video processing depended on Extended for a long while as well.

     

    I moved up to Extended with the Cloud and I don't do video.
