Adobe Creative Cloud (All Apps: Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, etc) $43.99 AUD Per Month for One Year

150

Apparently this link still works.

Was posted by @dubfonik last year.

Heres his description.

This is probably the best deal I can find for Adobe CC (all apps). Normally the price is A$72.59, and Adobe currently has a 20% discount, resulting in A$58.29 per month. This deal is about 40% off, so even better.

I had my yearly plan ready to renew, and paying the $72.59 was way too expensive for me. So I cancelled my Adobe plan and signed up to this one straight away (with the same account). So if you are able to do that you can do it with existing accounts too.

I'm not sure when the deal started or when it is due to expire. italic

    Is there anyway to get photoshop offline? Or has it gone completely towards a subscription service where you have the software but can only use it if you pay monthly? Looking to find out how to just get a copy (even paid) where i can just install once and never have to go down the route of having a monthly fee.

      Not legally, as far as I know.

      Not anymore. You can only purchase the subscription based CC version unless you can find an old CS6 version in a retailer somewhere.

      If you are just after photoshop, the photography bundle (PS and Lightroom) is only $14.29 a month, which is pretty good IMO. I do wish they had an option to throw in illustrator for a little extra though.

      They have completely removed the Creative Suite so you cannot purchase the software and own it forever. You can buy from officeworks a key for a year but after that year you need to renew.

      Also students can get the entire suite for roughly $289 a year from officeworks.

      Break away from the abusive relationship with Adobe and try something else like Affinity Photo, or something open source like GIMP.

        I find GIMP painful to use, but Affinity is really good for the money. If you want offline, go Affinity.

        •  

          Agreed, Gimp is not a direct alternative to Photoshop - especially designing mobile and web interfaces.
          I'll have a look at Affinity.

      •  

        PhotoDemon is pretty nice and open source. I find it much better than GIMP or Paint.net for my needs.

        •  

          On Mac I use GraphicConverter. It's been around for yonks, and the developer keeps updating the software with more features and enhancements.

          I've tried Apple's 'Pages' for DTP but, meh, it's horrible. I used to use QuarkXPress, so was kinda spoiled. InDesign (finally) got better, but too expensive for my (now) occasional use.

      •  

        What alternative is there to InDesign?

        I've been looking for something non-subscription for a while as I need Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat at the very least but don't use them often enough to justify the cost - Adobe wants me to either pay for a year up front for the princely sum of 1 arm and 1 leg, or I can pay for each month as I need it and they'll just hack off their pieces of flesh in large chunks adding up to about the same amount anyway.

          My wife uses Inkscape instead of Illustrator, and I think she tried Scribus to replace InDesign, but mostly just uses Publisher because she knows it, and we got it free.

          What alternative is there to InDesign?

          Pageplus BUT it is discontinued and Serif will bring out their DTP program under the Affinity brand but nothing yet but an announced beta. I use Affinity Designer (like Illustrator) and Pageplus (like InDesign) I will move to the new Affinity DTP product when it is released

          @CaffeinatedTech:

          Inkscape is excellent for free but Affinity Designer is more powerful.

          Scribus shows a lot of promise in technical capabilities (high quality PDF-A export, colour calibration, colour separations), but it's too complicated. For example you cannot format text without using styles and you cannot place a picture without first placing a box to put it in.

      All subscription now, unfortunately (such a shame really)…

      If you only after Photoshop I would recommend checking into the photography bundle subscription as it includes Lightroom and Photoshop for A$14.29/pm… You might also be able to find a discount code for your first year on this as well, I believe some photography personalities on Youtube have referral codes if needed, so support the person you enjoy watching by using their code I guess ;-)

      I believe the deal listed above will increase to the normal price of $72.59/pm after the first year which is simply crazy IMHO…

    •  

      You may be lucky to find a boxed version of Photoshop and Premiere bundled together.

      Once upon a time you could find these at Officeworks, Harvey Norman etc. With subscription models, those days are gone.

      I found a copy of version 12 on eBay for about $100 a few years ago. Sure it won’t get any new features but for my needs it’s perfect.

      Hope this helps.

      Edit: it was version 11.

  •  

    Awesome deal OP. Thank you very much for this. Just switched my plan. It was very easy when I spoke with the Adobe customer service.

    •  

      What do you mean by "switched your plan"? Isn't this the usual plan, just with a better price for 12mo? And who did you call? I have a CC monthly subscription and the price is ridiculous. I'd rather pay this one.

        I was in a $72.99 a month plan. So I rang customer service to switch to this plan. It was easy. I shared with them this link, they did it straight away.

    let's hope it sticks around…!

    If you are at uni, check with your institution. I get the entire Adobe CC suite for $100 per year (you need to pay up front for 12 months).

    I was already on an annual plan, but thought I'd give this a go; unfortunately my plan rolled over in Feb, so I would up for a hefty cancellation fee (~ $340).

    I did get this pleasant surprise, when I started the cancellation process:

    Hmm, either I can pay $342 to get out, which pretty much negates the new signup saving, or get a $210+ freebie to hang around. An offer of 3 months free… better than nothing, I guess.

    •  

      Ohhh pretty handcuffs.

    •  

      My plan expires at the end of June and I got the same 90 day offer. My condolences on the cancellation fee

    •  

      Thank you so much!!! I just did the same "You’re all set – your plan will be free for 90 days"…
      I will cancel in 3 months, and see if the $43.99 special offer is still around.

    Anyone know where I can find a cheap yearly subscription for Lightroom?

  •  

    I bought subscription on the name of my cousin who is a student….end up being super cheap. The good thing is you can install on subscription on two computers. so you can share the cost with a fellow designer

    •  

      I see where you’re coming from about sharing the cost and using your cousin’s name to get the student price - but I’m certain both of those violate the TOS so why not go the whole hog and use a torrent?

      Not judging in any way - I’m not working from home anymore so your post has made me seriously reconsider renewing no matter what the price is.

    Heads up to any Department of Education NSW staff out there, you can get Creative Cloud for $12 a year

  •  

    Back in the day, (e.g. 2000s) photoshop costs like over a grand to purchase. And when new version gets released, you’ll have to buy a new one.

    Subscription model works really well and you’ll end up paying less while always having the latest version. Most softwares are now in online subscription model.

    My viewpoint as a Graphic Designer for 18 years now.

    •  

      I think it's great if it's used for work, or someone else is paying. Whenever I read about the latest new feature in PS, LR, or Premiere, I hit update in CC and I'll get it right away. It ends up costing the same or less over time, and it's easier to pay a monthly fee than having to justify spending a huge lump sum every 2 years or so to get the latest features, and having to wait maybe a year to get those new features.

      For casual/light/home users though, it's pretty terrible. There are other applications out there, but Adobe's pretty much the standard. If you're collaborating with others, it's easiest to stick with the standard, just like MS Office.

  •  

    I have a boxed (subscription-less) Adobe CS 5.5 (Master Edition). Installed it on Mac OSX 13 (High Sierra) and PS, Il and ID still run fine.

    TBH, older versions of these are close enough to current versions, with a little less of new toys / features.

    If you are concerned about $$$, I'd hunt eBay / Gumtree.

    •  

      I had these boxed versions but Acrobat kept crashing until updated to latest version.

      •  

        Running Acrobat Pro 9 from this box and working fine here. Either way, plenty of other PDF editors out there.
