    I was wary about these annual upgrades

    So I only needed one program out of the Adobe Creative Cloud, and yes I did know there were other programs on there, and yes, I did need them. So last year I reluctantly bought the annual pass for the program. When it came up again this year, I said well, you need to see what else you are getting. And when I did, I saw it was a lot of programs that I could use and would improve the performance of the work I produce. They even have enough help and tutorial links that I could not just say, and I do not know how to use them. When I renewed, I found out that all my programs had upgrades, and they worked better than before. I am sure I could have done an upgrade under the old license, but buying this new one made me realize the power that I had and how I could improve the quality of the work I produce. So enough already, time to get back to making videos to go with my printed word. Very Impressed, glad I purchased this!

    I'm coming from using Cyberlink's PowerDirector 9. I have a day job but hope to one day break into video editing professionally and concluded that using a product that the pros used would be my next best step to achieving this goal. The Adobe CC has a tremendous amount of depth and I've only scratched the surface. To be fair if you're a beginner you have a lot of tutorial resources on youtube and on adobe's site to learn from but the learning curve can be steep if you don't know the terminology hence me only giving this 4 stars. But essentially, the sky is the limit. Your imagination and level of determination will determine how good this software is. Also note you need a high end PC with a dedicated video card to get the most out of this software otherwise you will spend a large amount of your time generating the output files.

    Adobe CC

    I'm glad that the annual price for Adobe CC is going down at places like Best Buy. It's an extremely expensive membership, but because I rely heavily on Photoshop for illustrating my kids' book and because I use Adobe Acrobat for teaching, it's become essential. That said, I don't use all the other programs much so the price still seems like overkill. What I'm saying here is nothing new, I know, but as long as Adobe continues to improve its programs—making Photoshop for iPad Pro available soon—I'll probably be stuck paying for this membership for many years.

    I have bought this 3 years in a row now. As a student on Financial Aid, this year-long subscription makes it possible for me to do my coursework from home instead of going to the school computer lab. I appreciate the option to pre-pay for the entire year, rather than a monthly subscription, which fits my needs in a much better way. Obviously the software itself is world-class and industry-standard and doesn't need to be reviewed.

    Bought this for my daughter in College, who was tired of going to the library to use the computers there with this program. She loves the program being on her laptop now and is always thankng me for buying it becaue it is making her home work and class projects so easy to complete. It took a while to download, but works like a charm and my daughter only wished we would have bought it sooner. We got it on sale and I hope we find it on sale again when this one runs out.

    I bought the Adobe Cloud software for school so I can work on my projects. The software is great but to pay $250 year just use it is a lot of money. Adobe needs to get rid of the subscription model and go back to the one time purchase of Adobe Creative Suite. If you have CS6 or earlier, you own it forever. If you buy this, it's just for a year.

    I won't go into everything I do with all of the products available, but just as a recap: you will receive (after verification of student status) the ENTIRE Adobe Cloud suite of programs. I find myself using certain software more than others, but anything you could possibly need to do will be a breeze with the tools at your disposal. The price is a bit steep, but its a real bargain compared to the $60+ you could be spending without the student discount. Great product!

    I had to buy this item twice because I wasn't aware that it was only for teachers & students, so when I tried to redeem it, I couldn't and I couldn't return it because it was after the 45 days return period. However, if the sales person would have pointed out this was ONLY for teachers & students (an educational use) product, I wouldn't have bought it initially.

    So, yes. Adobe Creative programs are fantastic and a MUST have for anyone in most business settings. HOWEVER, it’s unbelievably expensive and I do not like how you have to subscribe. I wish you could purchase the program outright like you used to. Now, you’re forced to pay yearly or monthly ongoing.

    Item came just as described. Shipment was fast. I just scratched off the code on the back and was able to get my year of Adobe Products. The only downside is that you still have to provide a credit card number to Adobe when registering. You will need to stay on top of your renewal date. If you need to cancel and you forget, Adobe will charge you automatically for another year.

    Great Programs cost you a slow processor

    I use this product for both business and school. For PC users, this set of programs are great but slowed down my Brand new HP Envy to a crawl even with the AMD A10 processor. You need to make mild adjustments to get your PC back up to speed but only use one adobe program at a time and don't leave Creative Cloud running in the background.

    I give a 3 rating because I am rating Adobe on charging annually and not offer purchase of a product. School requires two items in the creative cloud, so I will be renting them for five years and spend over $ 1,600 and own nothing. Best buy offers the product at the industry price and you have assurance you are getting a legal access. Best buy rates a 5.

    I can't believe I waited so long for the Creative Cloud. Latest and greatest technologies, and every Adobe product. It does seem to run a little slow at times, but my computer is not new, but also not that old (windows 8.1). All in all, I have been satisfied and have so many more programs to learn.

    I'm just getting back into Graphic Design work and mostly work in the photography items in this package, but decided to get the whole thing, in case I went back into the Graphic Design field. Great package so far, and a great price too!

    Adobe's creative cloud service is always expensive, but I do like the product. Also, this way there's no need to worry about monthly payments, or automatic annual re-subscription. I would recommend this product so long as it's necessary the person needs it for school or work .

    I have always loved adobe. Great software. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because I'm not a huge fan of the cloud. Went to print some illustrator images today with no internet connection and it changed my font because the majority of the fonts are saved to the cloud, not the computer

    I first had this as a free 1 yr subscription through my school, I am glad I did it because I got used to many of the features they provided which includes up to date software updated along with being able to sync my projects not just from my laptop but also to my tablet and phone too.

    Honestly I just like this because you don't have to deal with Adobe's crappy customer service. It's just a quick one year subscription without the hassle of dealing with possible price changing every year when you go through adobe.

    I needed access to this software and my husband was kind enough to just buy it outright (though I could use it at school). It's one of the best programs I've bought as far as video editing. Wide range of features and really easy to get the basics down.

    Amazing product that enables you to design your own graphics. We’ve used it for webpage design, book covers, and logos. Without this, we would have needed to hire a graphic designer.
