Adobe testing doubling of Photoshop, Lightroom $10 plan price

“Adobe could be looking to kill off its $10-a-month Photography plan, currently the cheapest Creative Cloud subscription, which gives users access to Photoshop and Lightroom with 20GB of cloud storage,” Liam Tung reports for ZDNet.

“For now Adobe is just testing removing the 20GB option on its plans and pricing page and has started presenting only the 1TB Photography package, which costs $20 per month,” Tung reports. “The trimmed lineup was spotted by PetaPixel, which was told by Adobe that the $10 plan is no longer being offered for many customers.”

“‘From time to time, we run tests on which cover a range of items, including plan options that may or may not be presented to all visitors to We are currently running a number of tests on,’ Adobe said in a statement to PetaPixel,” Tung reports. “Adobe’s statement doesn’t give any clear indication as to whether it will phase out the cheapest tier permanently. ”

Adobe doubles the price of its Creative Cloud plan for Photoshop and Lightroom – May 2, 2019


  1. If this “test” ends up being a success for Adobe, it can be bad news for all consumers. Other companies will probably end up trying the same.

    I have enough recurring monthly bills. I don’t need my apps to add to them.

  2. Test? Ha, ha, ha! That’s a good one. What I suspect is, that most people won’t sign up for their more expensive and rapacious plans, and this is how they are hoping to compensate. Whatever, Adobe.

  3. If customer needs were their first priority, Adobe would bring back the purchase option. If ringing every dollar out from their customer’s pockets was their first priority . . . they would be doing exactly what they are doing now.

  4. Looks like a good time to try out that free copy of Picktorial I downloaded last month. All I really need it for is DAM and stripping backgrounds.

  5. I just wish Adobe would experience a precipitous drop in subscribers when they get greedy like this.

    What they fail to consider is many who use their programs but either don’t make money on them or use them for their own amusement. Or use them on projects they hope to make money on but there are no guarantees.

    They are now going to drop to a much smaller pro base that does make money using their software while alienating everyone else or the more casual user who can’t justify the expense. The only reason for high prices are usually more money for the CEO and his cohorts in crime.
