Adobe cloud vs other app installation

Hello, I'm evaluating the purchasing of the licence for Cloud. But I saw that it contains plenty of APP and I'm not sure if I could install instead some separate few app that I will use more frequently.

The sense of the cloud is because it will work online? Only online?  There will be some limitation working locally as some usual app installation? Can you give me some quick description of the added value of cloud versus some other partial installations? I see that too much info exist and they are very dispersive to take a quick decision on the right purchasing. Thanks a lot

Sergio

cc subscription apps are installed on your computer. 

 

you need to be connected to the internet (specifically adobe.com) to install adobe apps, and periodically to confirm your subscription (occurs in the background).

 

specifically, you need to connect to adobe.com once every 30 (montly paid subscription) or 99 (prepaid annual subscriptions) days (and again, this occurs in the background).  ie, you do not always need to be connected to adobe.com to use your subscription apps.

 

because the all apps plan is less expensive than a few single app plans, i believe, most of us with all apps plans only install and use 4 to 10 apps.  

 

it's important to note that the free trial automatically becomes a paid subscription unless you explicitly cancel*. 

 

it's important to note that cancelling an annual plan (whether paid monthly or prepaid) before the end of the contract results in a financial penalty (=1/2 the cost of the remaining contract months)**.

 


*
for info on how to cancel your subscription, this page describes the few steps involved, https://helpx.adobe.com/manage-account/using/cancel-subscription.html

**

make sure you're aware of the cancellation terms by selecting your plan type (at the top of the page here), https://helpx.adobe.com/manage-account/using/creative-cloud-subscription-terms.html

In addition, Adobe is having a 25% off Black Friday sale through November 25 for the first year for new customers only. After the first year, the price will revert to its regular price.

There is a 14-day grace period for cancelling an annual plan without paying an early cancellation fee. If it's not working for you, be sure not to wait until the 14th day.

Don't be tricked by the "Cloud" name. It's just a name chosen for marketing, because Adobe thought it was exciting. The apps are installed locally, and used just like other apps. But you need to be online regularly so the subscription can be checked. There is no "partial installation" that is different.

Before you buy a 12 month subscription, get a 7 day free trial.  It's not enough time to evaluate all the apps & services, but it will give you some idea of what you're getting.  Black Friday deals end Nov 25th.

If you decide to cancel, do it before the 14th day of service.  Otherwise you won't receive a refund and there's a 50% penalty fee for cancelling early. 

 

Also make sure your computer meets the minimum CPU & GPU requirements. Most Creative Cloud apps work on:

  • Windows 11 (64-bit), Windows 10 versions 21H2, 21H1, 20H2,
  • macOS 12 (Monterey), macOS 11 (Big Sur), macOS 10.16 or 10.15 (Catalina).

Hope that helps.
