Adobe offered the US$10 plan back in 2013 as a special limited deal. But the plan proved to be so popular that the company stuck with the new price. That is, until now. The old basic plan offers up-to-date versions of Photoshop CC, Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom CC, and 20GB of cloud storage. The new basic plan bumps up the storage to 1TB of cloud storage.

PetaPixel reached out to Adobe Sales and a representive confirmed the price increase. If you’re not comfortable with the increase, you may have to look elsewhere. Popular Photoshop alternatives include Affinity Photo, Pixelmator Pro, and others.


Adobe tweeted that it has no plans to change the standard 20GB plan, and people can still purchase it here or via phone at 1-800-585-0774. The company is “just currently testing photography plans with higher levels of storage.”

  • Adobe pioneered this awful model, and now Apple is pushing App Store developers on both iOS and macOS to subscriptions. I’m sure businesses love automatic recurring revenue, but as a customer I hate subscriptions. Besides the financial toll and the irritation of having money drained out of your wallet on a monthly basis just to keep an app from breaking, there is the added workload of keeping track of what you’re subscribing to and culling subscriptions for things you no longer use or want. Subscription overload sucks. and what was Apple’s last big event all about? More subscriptions. Yay.

  • I don’t need Lightroom, or 1TB of storage. At $10/month, it was a wash with updating Photoshop Elements every year. For $240/yr, I’ll go back to Photoshop Elements, or use Luminar more.
