New Adobe pricing for web design professionals

At kc web design Kent we’ve been using the beta version of Adobe Photoshop CS6 for the last few months and we’re eagerly waiting for the launch date. While we wait, Adobe have announced the prices for the creative suite and the new creative cloud service.

If you’re a freelance web design or own a small web design studio then the new subscription based cloud service looks excellent. For only £17 per month you can pay for Photoshop CS6 on a monthly basis or sign up to a 12 months subscription plan. Paying for CS6 this way is perfect for a small web design studio like kc web design Kent and there will be many more web design companies out there that this will be a perfect fit for. With the very high price for Adobe software excluding a lot of small web design businesses the new monthly pricing plan sounds perfect. At kc web design Kent we mostly use photoshop and illustrator but sometimes need inDesign for print work. With the new subscription plan we can buy inDesign for just a month or two, as and when we need it. Buying web design software like this will make a huge difference to outgoing costs and not having to pay over £1000 for a bit of software in one lump sum will be a relief to many small web design studios like kc web design Kent.

The high price of Adobe web design software has had one good side effect – lots of smaller web design software makers have got in on the act and there are some very good independent software makers producing great photoshop and illustrator alternatives that in some cases may be doing a better job for web design than Adobes offerings. Stay tuned for the new Sketch 2 app from Bohemian – lots of web design gurus are getting very excited about this. And Pixelmator is a very good Photoshop alternative.

At kc web design Kent we’ll be diving straight for the debt card as soon as the new CS6 suite is released and going for the subscription plan.
