Adobe Creative Cloud Replaces Creative Suite

With an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, you get access to Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Flash and Illustrator, as well as an array of other Adobe design products all in one.

Much has been said about Adobe’s recent announcement that it is discontinuing sales of its Creative Suite in disk form, opting instead to sell by subscription only:

Adobe discontinues Creative Suite, makes Cloud sole focus

Many longtime customers are protesting the change, and the debate about costs continues:

How greedy is Adobe’s Creative Cloud subscription? Not very

I made the change a few months ago, and after some initial difficulties in setup, things are going smoothly. A particular advantage is that the subscription works for Mac and PC users, eliminating the need to buy two versions.

Initial download of the programs can take a while, and with the Cloud, you are forced to register the product (not always a disadvantage). But the benefits of having updates in one place and of having the software always available online on any computer, are considerable.

Cloud-based subscription is becoming the norm, and while many users object, it is here to stay.
