Introducing the Photoshop Photography Program

The Photoshop Photography Program will be available during the week of September 16, 2013

During today's keynote at the Photoshop World conference in Las Vegas, Adobe is showcasing how photography workflows will evolve to take advantage of an increasingly connected world. This includes a tour of how easy it is today to use Creative Cloud to make your content and creations available anywhere, plus the power of Behance to showcase work. We also highlight some of the exciting new technologies that we're working on for Photoshop CC and Lightroom; our roadmap for making our photography products even more connected; and a peek at how we're planning to bring advanced Adobe digital imaging technology to mobile devices. You'll see these products and services become available in the not too distant future.

Throughout this week at Photoshop World, we're demoing some great digital imaging innovation and I hope you're as excited as we are about what's available today and what's coming soon, thanks to our talented teams of engineers.

Since introducing Photoshop CC, we've listened to feedback from a spectrum of our customers, from advanced professionals to casual enthusiasts. One common request was a solution specifically tailored for photographers. We listened, and at Photoshop World we’re announcing a special offer for our loyal Photoshop customers. Beginning today, customers who own Photoshop CS3 or higher are eligible for a special Creative Cloud membership offer that includes all of the following for just $9.99/month:

  • Photoshop CC
  • Lightroom 5
  • 20 GB of online storage
  • Behance ProSite
  • Access to Creative Cloud Learn’s training resources
  • Ongoing upgrades and updates

To be clear, $9.99 is not an introductory price. It is the price for those of you who sign up by December 31, 2013. And here is a list of prices for the major regions outside of the US – keep in mind that these prices are exclusive of VAT/local taxes which vary by country.

DripBook Announces merger with WorkBook

In a rather surprising turn of events Drip Book Announces merger with Work Book.

If you've been paying attention to the part of our industry that deals with source books and online photo portfolios over the last 10 years you'll note that Workbook was at one time one of the top 3 resources connecting photographers to art directors and art buyers. Then not long after we all started moving towards digital Workbook chose to lag behind the rest of the industry and in doing so New media companies such as DRIP BOOK came online offering a clean easy to use interface and a pricing model that Workbook and others could not compete with. Drip Book for the last 6 years or so has really been one of the premiere online resources for those in the photo industry to promote and host their online portfolios.

I can only assume that Drip Book was offered a huge amount of cash as an incentive to merge with Workbook. According to staff members workbook received a huge financial boot during the last year thanks in large part to Venture Capitol investors.

Workbook it appears is currently focusing on competing with Agency Access for their market share based on this and other ventures.

Our ambition at Drip book has always been to put your creative portfolios in front of all the right people. So we’re thrilled to announce that Drip book is now part of Workbook, a creative heavyweight that will connect your portfolios to an exciting new audience.
