Well if you are a Photoshop user there are some changes happening that you might want to be aware of. Adobe has decided to bet the farm that the future lies in digital distribution and subscriptions.
Let me explain, as of May 6, 2013, you will still be able to buy CS6 but it will be only from a 3rd party reseller. You are no longer able to download Photoshop (or any other Adobe product except for Lightroom) and a license to use CS6 from the Adobe website. Adobe has not said when it will stop selling CS6 all together but my suspicion is that as soon as current stock is sold there will be no more copies available at the local Best Buy.
The fact that the new edition of Photoshop and other Adobe products will out in June only confirms my suspicion. So how do you get Photoshop and you other favorite Adobe products, well you get them from Creative Cloud.
Creative Cloud is Adobe’s subscription service that they released just over a year ago and is how Adobe is planning on getting all of its tools in to the hands of designers, photographers, videographers, web developers and audio professionals.
