Creative Cloud is here!

With Adobe's new Creative Cloud, there's a lot to like – especially if you're interested in mobile apps or digital publishing for tablets and e-readers. There are some cool new features in InDesign and Flash and a number of new features in the video products. Dreamweaver has undergone some major changes. Some are very forward-thinking, but others are frustrating. Photoshop introduces modest new feature improvements.

The big change is the subscription model. Students can subscribe for $29.99 (or $19.99 if you subscribe soon!) You can subscribe to individual software titles for less (Photoshop & Lightroom are bundled for $9.99/month), but if you're using more than 2 Adobe products, access to the entire collection is a great deal.

I've heard a lot of people complain about the new payment model. It does change things, but you do get a lot for your money. In addition to most of the software Adobe sells, Creative Cloud also includes optional services for no additional cost including: TypeKit with desktop download of fonts, Behance web portfolio site, and web hosting through Adobe.

For those of us who depend on this software for daily work, the improvements justify the monthly cost. For those of you who are still using CS2, CS3, or CS4 this is a no-brainer.
