Adobe: Which Cloud Has Your Silver Lining?


Using Adobe’s suite of creative productivity programs can be challenging for the uninitiated—but so rewarding that you’ll be impressed immediately. Photographers, videographers, and designers around the world depend on Adobe’s stable of products to do everything from editing text and pictures to laying out publishing material to creating masterpieces of art. It’s so ubiquitous that the term “Photoshopped” is often used as verb when describing an altered image.

But with so many products to offer, how do you determine which one is right for you? How do you know how much storage you’ll need for your work (most plans come with a set amount of storage included in the purchase price)? As with almost anything you purchase, knowing why you need the Adobe software product and what you’ll use it for will be a determining factor in which one to purchase.

The chart below should help you decide between some of the options available for the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan and Lightroom CC plan. For even more information, check out our full lineup of Adobe products at B&H Photo.
