What Adobe Creative Cloud pricing means to me.


I just got off the phone with an Adobe rep to get the straight deal on the pricing changes proposed with the Creative Cloud changes. Currently, I have a site license of Creative Suite 5 Designer for our school. We purchased a couple of years ago and got educational pricing for the dual Mac and Windows Licenses. We have multiple laptop carts, computer labs, shared workstations, and we have individual users. I am going back to confirm what we paid for the site license when we bought the educational pricing for Adobe CS 5 to get the exact numbers.

Per the Adobe rep, all shared computers for the Creative Cloud CS Suite will be $39 per month. Individual users (named) can go with the $19 per month option. So, we have about 80 users I can do with individual accounts on and about 210 shared computers either in lab spaces or laptop carts. This will bump a little more over the Summer but is ballpark.

80 x $19 = $1,520.00 per month

210 x $39 = $8,190.00 per month

Total = $9,710 per month or $116,520 per year.

No kidding.

I have some more calls in and will correct once Adobe can confirm.
