We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I purchased the 20GB Photography Plan earlier this week. In the Creative Cloud desktop app Premiere Rush is listed under "Included in your subscription". When I open Rush it tells me that I need to pay to use it.
Can Adobe either please make Rush part of the Photography Plan or stop listing it as available?!
From perusing the forums it appears that this has been an issue for some time now. It is either a dishonest marketing ploy or careless programming. Either way it needs to be rectified.
Yes, I also have the Adobe Photography plan (for years now) and am looking for a basic video editor. I'm concerned if I open Rush, Adobe will switch me to the $52 a month all App plan, so I uninstalled it. Showing Rush as part of the photography plan is dishonest. Adobe should simply list it as a free trial which I would be interested in, but not at the cost of losing my photography plan.
I also have the Creative Cloud Photography plan and just started using Rush. It let me fully use the program but after saving three videos it said I had to upgrade to continue using. I clicked the Upgrade button and it wanted to charge me as much as the Photography plan itself. Thats crazy on many counts. First telling me its included in my plan, and then wanting to charge me as much as a much more powerful suite of Programs. I commented on this forum a week ago and have yet to hear from Adobe. But after reading other posts this sounds very deceptive.
I'm replying here because I want this issue to remain visible as long as possible. I've replied to other such posts and yes, it's dishonest. A bald faced lie. Rush is NOT included in the photography plan. A trial version is available. Shame, Adobe.
Wow, I'm just getting on this topic now and didn't realize it was ongoing for so long. Tried calling Adobd and getting help, then chatting. No one at Adobe will give me a straight answer.
As a new 20 GB Photography Plan subscriber, I'd like to add my disgruntlement at this misleading ploy from Adobe. It clearly states that Rush is "Available in your subscription", with no Try button, no Buy button. So restricting it to 3 videos is an interesting use of the word "available".
I just signed up for the Photography plan believing that Premiere Rush was included - based on the materials from Adobe - and agree this is a bald-faced lied. Does Adobe respond to complaints in this forum? I am planning to file a BBB complaint.
As far as I can see they don't monitor this forum at all. If you're needing video editing for non-commerical reasons, then I'd suggest Da Vinci Resolve. They have a free version (honestly!) and it's pretty near a fully fledged, professional video editing package. Steep learning curve compared to the simplicity of Premiere Rush, but it can do so much more.

I'm sorry for the confusing labeling that was used previously in the Creative Cloud app. The labeling has been updated. I hope that helps going forward.
Our freemium apps are now under a section called "Apps to try." If you see any other misleading messaging, please let me know, and I'll pass the information on to the right team.
I hope this is no longer a problem from now on.
Thanks for sharing your experience with us.
Thank you for finally changing that and making it clear. It's a shame it took well more than one year for that to happen, but at least people won't be installing Rush or purchasing the photography plan in the future believing the full version to be included.
Having just installed it today (I installed CC last week) I can assure you it is still a problem. There should be a "Try" button next to it, not just a "Install" button.
Thanks @petergaraway at Adobe for addressing this.
Premiere Rush no longer appears under "Available in your plan" – but rather further down under "Apps to try"... This is a big improvement and definitely helps make things clearer.
The matter is a bit confusing because the Premiere Rush Starter plan is free to use, whereas the unrestricted version is not. Has Adobe considered indicating "Premiere Rush (Starter)" to make this more obvious before installing – or alternatively using "Try"/"Buy" buttons like on other apps?
Just some additional thoughts.
Yeah big improvement. It only took what 2 ½-3 years to get changed but yes it is nice they finally changed it.
Why did Adobe not send out another e mail saying the first one was wrong, so to minimising the problems the first one caused, But instead making people waste a lot of time finding issues navigating Adobe maze of support to find out we had been duped, misled or just plain lied to.
So today (22/10/2021) I get this in an email from Adobe:
"Dear Adobe Customer,
In the coming week your Adobe Creative Cloud membership will start to include the premium version of two additional applications: Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe Photoshop Express. Your Creative Cloud plan remains the same price even with the addition of these applications."
Sounds good, I like the idea of Rush as an alternative to Final Cut when I just want a quick throwaway vid for insta - but the '3 export' limit remains. Have I just jumped the gun i.e. the full version will become available, or is this Adobe using a very questionable marketing tactic to get some attention for Rush?
This is interesting. So you currently have the Photography plan?
That email states "the premium version" of Rush... Usually, one would think the premium version would be the full version. But you mention "the 3 export limit remains" – does the email say that?
Next week is the big annual Adobe MAX conference, so guessing that this email could be a sign of an upcoming announcement... We'll probably learn more details then.
Yah, my issue is same as OP's. Got the email, was excited to use it to export little short dumb videos once every few months, load app and BAM, pay us please. They shouldn't have sent the email. 😞
Yup, I have the Photography plan...
Nope, the email doesn't say anything about the 3 export limit.
The rest of the email just explains what Rush and Photoshop Express are, and where the user guides are available.
The implication in the email is that they're adding enormous value to your existing plan...the 3 exports limit calls bullsh*t on that.
But, hopefully I was just too quick to check - they do say 'In the coming week' so maybe I've just been too hasty to install...let's see what happens after Adobe Max.
Got exactly same email...
How do you know the 3 export limits will still exist? When I got the same email from Adobe yesterday I thought they were doing the right thing to correct for their deceiving practice of saying a program included with the photography plan only allows three videos before the program stops. Personally I don't think Adobe would dare try this but if its still only three exports this would be doubly deceiving. I might have to cancel my plan and go elsewhere for software if that's the case.
Not sure I understand?
I didn't know the 3 export limit still existed - given the email, I thought it had been removed...so I installed Rush, mucked about a bit - then got a popup in the app saying I was limited to 3 exports...until then I had no idea it was limited.
This is the popup I get when I load Rush - it appears about 2 mins after I open the app.
There have been no changes yet. Adobe's email said "in the coming week"...
The MAX conference starts next Tuesday, so the changes which are coming (whatever they are) are not likely to be evident before then.
In other words, nothing has happened yet -- and we'll see what does.
All I can do is shake my head. In my mind, I highly doubt they will remove the 3 limit trial but we shall see what we shall see.
