Can’t Afford Adobe Photoshop? Rent It

adobe-logoAdobe has launched a subscription model for its new Creative Suite 5.5, a collection of graphic design, video editing, and web development applications. Under the subscription scheme users can rent the entire Creative Suite or individual applications on a month-to-month basis or for an entire year, without paying for the full product upfront. This will enable freelance designers and small businesses to legally use Adobe’s products at a fraction of the cost.

For instance, Adobe Photoshop is priced expensively at $700, but you can own it for as little as $35 per month for a year long rent or $49 on a month-to-month plan. The one-year plan offers lower monthly payments which is ideal for someone with an ongoing need to use Creative Suite software. The month-to-month plan provides the flexibility of a short-term commitment that allows you to stop and restart your subscription at any time.

The various software titles that are available under the subscription model is given below.

  1. $35 for a month, in the case of Photoshop, is quite affordable in my opinion. Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Flash are reasonable prices too.
