Adobe has released the latest iteration of it’s Creative Suite: Adobe CS6. The game changer for Adobe this go-round is the introduction of a software-as-a-service option called Creative Cloud. Creative Cloud will offer users a subscription-based offering of the Adobe software, a la carte and in the usual bundles.
Adobe Creative Suite 6 consists of 14 applications, which are available in four different packages – Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium, Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design Standard, Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium, and Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection.
The Design Standard suite costs $1,299 and the Master Collection which includes everything will run you $2,599.
Probably the best-known app in the bunch, Adobe Photoshop CS6, starts at $699.
The cost for the Creative Cloud subscription service is $49.99 monthly ($19.99 for students). Adobe Photoshop by itself is $19.99 per month.
