Pros Adobe Photoshop Cloud

- The biggest advantage here is to provide a low entry price to an amazing suite of products delivering high quality features.

- Free access to the latest releases of the products. Some will point out that you need to pay every month to keep the software running and pricing may not stay the same overtime compared to an upfront fixed price offered by a perpetual license.

- The cost of the subscription compared to a perpetual purchase, is worth it for many organizations. For instance, the full master collection price is about $2,500. This amount represents three to four years of subscription depending on the edition considered and does not include upgrades, which costs about $500 when going from CS5.5 to CS6. In this case, the subscription is very attractive.

Cons Adobe Photoshop Cloud

- Editions such as Design Standard ($1,299) are less attractive as the subscription price is still the same; over three years, the subscription price will be more expensive than a perpetual license.

- Overall on the very long run, a subscription will typically always be more expensive: rather than collecting $600 to upgrade products every 2-3 years from perpetual licenses, Adobe will get about the same amount or more every year with subscriptions.

- Adobe could always raise the subscription prices in the future.
