Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) subscribers (including myself) have reported receiving emails about an upcoming price change coming to the editing suite.

After a bit of digging, I found out that the email was indeed legitimate. The news should come as no surprise as it was previously mentioned at Abobe MAX event back in October 2017, however it seems that many were still caught off guard (including myself yet again).

According a blog posted back in December 2017, prices are set to raise depending on what combination of programs you are subscribed to. The company has attributed the price increase its efforts to “evolve and improve” its range of programs within its suite.

They also made mention of a few new additions to the line up, including Adobe XD CC, Dimension CC, Character Animator CC, Photoshop Lightroom CC, and Spark with premium features.

The price increase has been carded for April 16th, but will take effect at different dates depending on what bundles you purchased and the payment terms of your contract.

Here is a sample breakdown of some of the increased to come.

  • Creative Cloud for Individual Single App plans will increase to $20.99 per month from $19.99 per month or $1 per month
  • Creative Cloud for Individual All Apps plans will increase to $52.99 per month from $49.99 per month or $3 per month
  • Creative Cloud for Teams All App plans will increase to $79.99 per month from $69.99 per month or $10 per month

For those who have a pay-monthly annual plan expiring on or after April 16th, the price change will not take effect until your annual cycle is completed. Those who prepaid on an annual basis will not see any increases until the end of the yearly cycle.

For those who pay monthly, the price change will take effect from the next billing cycle occurring on or after April 16th.

Clients will be informed about upcoming price changes to their plan(s) via email at least 30 days before it goes into effect. As there are many different product combinations, each email will break down the respective increases on a client-by-client basis.

For those who subscribe to the Creative Cloud Photography plan, the $9.99 plan remains as is, but we won’t know for sure how long this will last.

On their help page, they also encourage people to switch to the annual plan to potentially escape the increase, but of course that puts more money in their pockets in the near term.
