Adobe just revealed (via The Verge) pricing information and additional details pertaining to its new cloud-based offering called Creative Cloud. Announced last October alongside new touch apps for tablets, Creative Cloud is billed as a service that “radically redefines the content creation process” by offering a central web-based repository to store, share and view content across devices. Prices start at $49.99 a month, which buys you a one-year access to 20GB of cloud storage shared across the upcoming Creative Suite 6 apps.
This translates into an annual fee of $600 versus the $2,000 (or much less) for the CS license, which could lure those who deem CS too pricey (assuming you only use a license for a year or two). A membership also gets you all the Creative Suite tools, Adobe Touch Apps and services, device syncing capabilities, in addition to new features, products, and services as soon as they are released. It also includes Lightroom 4 (once it exits beta) and the new Muse and Edge web authoring tools. Volume licensing for businesses will be available this fall for $69.99 a month per seat. [read]
