Updated: Now runs until February 28, 2014.
We received the following email from Adobe this morning:
We are excited to let you know about the following offers – some of the best deals around!
Due to the fantastic response to our Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotion for the Photoshop Photography Program, available to anyone for $9.99, this offer has been extended until February 28th, 2014. This will be available worldwide, wherever the bundle is available on Adobe.com.
We are also extending our Creative Cloud membership $29.99 promotion into 2014. With this extension, anyone owning CS3+ who has not yet made the move to Creative Cloud will continue to be able to join Creative Cloud at the rate of $29.99/month for their first year until May 2014.
UPDATE:The Photoshop Photography Program is Live! Here is the link…
This morning at Photoshop World, Adobe announced a new Creative Cloud membership plan for photographers. This is exactly what photographers have been asking for.
From their press release:
Since introducing Photoshop CC we’ve listened to feedback from a spectrum of our customers, from advanced professionals to casual enthusiasts. One common request was a solution specifically tailored for photographers. We listened and at Photoshop World we’re announcing a special offer for our loyal Photoshop customers. Beginning today, customers who own Photoshop CS3 or higher are eligible for a special Creative Cloud membership offer that includes all of the following for just $9.99/month (pricing varies outside of the US):
- Photoshop CC
- Lightroom 5
- 20 GB of online storage
- Behance ProSite
- Access to the online video tutorials in Creative Cloud
This is the ongoing price for anyone who signs up by December 31, 2013. So if you sign up in October 2013, then when you renew in October 2014, the price will still be $9.99 per month. We do not currently have any intention of raising this price.
The Adobe Create Now Tour lands in Los Angeles Tuesday morning Oct 29, at the Regal Cinema at LA Live! in Downtown LA, from 8:30am to 12:30pm.

Terry White will also be joining us the evening of Oct 29 at Plummer Park.
Update: The Adobe Illustrator LA user group is also sponsoring a Coffee With Adobe Experts event in the afternoon, if you want to talk one-on-one with Terry White and the other evangelists. Admission is free, but registration is required at the above link.
A new Photoshop CC update rolled out this morning, with something called Generator.
As a web designer I am intrigued by the possibilities, but I don’t think this is very important for photographers. Ones looking at creating websites will find it useful though, as it can also convert a photoshop design into real (if rough) HTML with Edge Reflow.
