[Adobe.com] Adobe CC existing photography plan - 3 months free - YMMV

Deal Link:

I was looking to cancel my Adobe CC photography plan as I am not using it much for sometime.

While cancelling, it is giving next free 90 days offer to reconsider cancellation

Could be just YMMV but worth trying it if you already have Adobe CC subscription (and please lets not debate on the whole subscription model).

Also, while cancelling it is giving option for All apps subscription for $38.99 CAD a month which is quite good as compared to regular subscription.

Thanks! I just got 2 months free. It was asking me to pay a cancellation fee for ending my "yearly sub, paid monthly" contract, but I clicked on "next" and the offer came through.

Free is always good. That said, may I suggest Affinity Photo as an alternative? I used Adobe’s suite for years. It’s excellent but so expensive. The rental aspectswore on me. I found I was using PS and Acrobat the most. So, I tried a couple of alternatives for each. Affinity won in the end as a replacement for PS. Incredible power at the price and well supported. Currently, Photo is on sale for only $35. Free 90 day trial and v1.9 was just released.

I've been running a trial of Affinity Photo recently. Seems like they unfortunately don't have a substitute for Lightroom yet. Are you running something else as substitute to Lightroom?

No offers as I believe I went through this a while ago, but I did find out CAD billing is available, so thanks OP! That’s a few bucks saved.

I would consider Luminar 4 as suitable alternative( which I got for free from one of the promotions by Luminar themselves or probably it was intel with purchase of new processor )
For Raw file editing, it's quite capable.

I want so badly to leave the Lightroom trap. My problem is that I edit on a MacBook (main editor/importer) in which I upload smart previews to the Adobe Cloud (unlimited free storage of smart previews with the photography CC plan). I then can edit my entire catalog on the go on my iPad or Note 20. They update so seamlessly.

I have tried all of the others but the cross platform ease of syncing and stuff, Adobe CC can't be touched. I have my ENTIRE catalog at my disposal anytime I feel like sorting, flagging, staring, adding keywords, deleting, editing on the go etc.

PS: Thanks for the tip I got 2 months and my plan extended from April till June :)

I hate that Lightroom:
1) is a fairly expensive subscription
2) is so good and essential to my photo workflow (importing, processing, organizing)

They always give you something when you ask to cancel.

The other tidbit I do is cancel and signup as new user whenever they have the 40%ish off promo. Kind of annoying to jump through the hoops but its worth it for the recurring savings.

Thanks! Got two months free and found out they finally have a pricing in Canadian dollars, which I’ll switch to in 2 months.

Lightroom has great functionality. I’ve read that Serif is working on tools that will bring Photo closer to the mix of PS (editing) and Lightroom (workflow). At the present, it can probably replace the former but not the latter. I’m not a heavy user so the trade offs were worth the savings. I do appreciate how numerous the options have become. Unless we’re tied to a commercial environment, it’s almost always possible to find a workable and (much) cheaper option.

Adobe's cloud capabilities and being seamlessly available across all devices irrespective of OS platforms is definitely one of their strong selling points.

Does anyone know if this will work if you sign up and cancel immediately? Had a subscription but, cancelled it a while ago.

How do you switch to pricing in Canadian $?

If you have kids or a teacher yourself, you can get the educational price at 60% off for $25.99/mth CAD.

I'm not sure how they verify given many are 'teaching' their kids at home during COVID. Would that would qualify? :)

I probably use Lightroom 90% of the time and split the remaining 10% between Capture One and Photoshop.

And don't forget that all three Affinity products (Photo, Designer, Publisher) are currently 50% off, which is $35 CAD.

Affinity Photo's Inpainting tool is worth the cost of AP alone!

Believe me, if there was anything remotely close, I would jump ship in a heartbeat!
