I think Creative Cloud is worth it.

 

People complain that they don't want to pay monthly for software and that they would rather just own it, but in reality I don't know anyone who has paid $600 for the CS suite. It's just too expensive for people, so they either pirate or they go to cheaper options.

 

Adobe tried to bring the price down by creating cheaper options like Photoshop Elements but that was a mess that nobody liked.

 

Now, students can pay $20 a month and get the entire Adobe suite! This helps people experiment with different options because they have so much more at their disposal. You also get upgrades included for that price, so when new versions of the software come out you're not purchasing another $600 suite. I think Creative Cloud works out to be cheaper for a lot of students and it's definitely worth it because you can experiment with all the software.

The good news is you can get software very inexpensively through Creative Cloud, and your investment isn't lost when new major versions of the software come out because you get free updates!

I am not familiar with Creative Cloud. Do you have to be a student to use it?  Is Creative Cloud an actual designing software or is it a place that allows individuals to download software like Adobe Photoshop at an affordable price?  I tried to use GIMP but I had gotten so used to Adobe Photoshop 7 that I could not quite get over the learning curve.  I am pretty amazed at some of the graphic designs people are able to generate with GIMP.  What's even more amazing is that the software is free!

You used to buy adobe products one at a time or in a pack, and a pack would cost you around $650 and would last for life.

 

Now everything is a subscription model. You pay monthly or yearly and get either one software or all of the Adobe software for that monthly/yearly rate. You also get all of the software updates included for that price. In the past, when you were on Photoshop CS 5 and Photoshop CS 6 came out, you had to pay a lot to upgrade to the new version. With the subscription model you get to download all the updates as long as you're paying.

 

Students get a discount on Creative Cloud. For $20 a month a student has access to Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign, and all the other Adobe tools!
