Adobe offering Photoshop CC and Lightroom bundle with cloud storage for $10 per month

Adobe has received a lot of criticism for making its Creative Cloud product suite a subscription-only service, not the least of which has been from photographers who may not need all the programs in the packed and pricey service. In response to that criticism, Adobe has just announced a pared down package for photographers, which includes Photoshop CC, Lightroom, 20GB of cloud storage, and a Behance ProSite for $9.99 a month.

The Adobe service, dubbed the "Photoshop Photography Program," was announced during the opening keynote at Photoshop World in Las Vegas today.

"Since introducing Photoshop CC, we’ve listened to feedback from a spectrum of our customers, from advanced professionals to casual enthusiasts," Winston Hendrickson, Adobe's vice president of Engineering, Digital Imaging, wrote on Adobe's Creative Layer blog today. "One common request was a solution specifically tailored for photographers. We listened, and at Photoshop World we’re announcing a special offer for our loyal Photoshop customers."

The one catch is that to eligible for the offer, you must already own Photoshop CS3 or higher. Henrickson noted that the $9.99 offer is not an "introductory price." It's offered to anyone who signs up for the Photoshop Photography Program by December 31, 2013. The deal will be available in the next few weeks at the same time as Adobe introduces the new version of Lightroom 5.2.
