Adobe has announced the launch of Creative Cloud for individuals and enterprise in India. The company had earlier unveiled the same offering targeted at small to medium size teams.
The announcement comes hours after the company revealed plans to ditch its popular Creative Suite of applications in favour of Creative Cloud. Adobe is offering special discounted pricing to existing CS users in a bid to encourage them to move to Creative Cloud. This signals a move away from selling-software-in-a-box to a complete subscription model.
Adobe Creative Cloud provides users with unlimited access to download and install applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Lightroom, Muse and Edge. Creative Cloud subscription also enables access to Web tools like Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks, as well as Audio-Video tools like Premiere Pro, After Effects and other apps that were earlier part of the CS6 Master Collection.Adobe Creative Cloud for individuals is priced at Rs. 2,700 per month for the entire suite of applications, if you make an annual commitment, or Rs. 4,000 on a month to month basis. Access to a single application like Photoshop can be yours at Rs. 1,000 per month. For signing up and more details, head to Adobe's website.
Pricing for Adobe Creative Cloud for enterprise is available on request.
"Adobe Creative Cloud's advanced capabilities are making it a hit with the worldwide creative community: more than half a million paid members, and well over 2 million free members have signed up for Creative Cloud since it was launched globally in April 2012," said Umang Bedi, Managing Director, Adobe South Asia. "Creative Cloud is dramatically changing how creative professionals and businesses publish finished work, and deliver enhanced services that build and power websites, mobile apps, tablet publications, online portfolios, and content for virtually any medium and device."
"Among the upgrades available is inbuilt support for ten Indian languages in Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC, so this is good news for creative professionals in our market," Bedi said.
