Adobe’s Creative Cloud is the ultimate suite of software for any creator, offering access to more than 20 class-leading apps for a single monthly price. A subscription is especially tempting right now, with Adobe slashing the prices on two of its leading plans.

Until 2 September, anyone can get a subscription to the Creative Cloud All Apps plan for just £39.95 per month. That’s a hefty 20% discount on the usual £49.94 monthly price, without any reduction in functionality. There's also 20% off if you’d prefer to pay annually – down to £476.98 from £596.33. Both drop the price you’ll pay each year by almost £120.

However, there’s an even better Back to School deal available if you’re a current student or teacher. Anyone who can validate their status in full-time education is eligible for a staggering 65% off the same subscription. That means you get access to all the Creative Cloud apps for just £179.94 a year, a huge saving on the £596.33 you’d usually expect to pay.

What’s more, you can also get the first month’s access completely free. That takes the total discount here to an incredible £432.66. The promotion is only available when you pay upfront, but why wouldn’t you when prices are this good?

If you’re based in the US, the same deal is even sweeter. The All Apps plan is available here for just $15.99 per month, down from its usual $52.99. That’s almost 70% off, saving you an incredible $444 for every year you subscribe. You do miss out on the free first month, but it’s a worthwhile trade-off.

What makes Adobe Creative Cloud so good?

It’s easy to see why Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite is so in-demand. The likes of Photoshop, Premiere Pro and InDesign are the leading names in their respective fields, but Adobe has a pro-level application for almost every creative use you can think of. Whether you’re looking to touch up images (Lightroom), open and edit PDFs (Acrobat Pro) or add special effects to your videos (After Effects), Creative Cloud is the place to be.

In total, there are more than 20 great apps to choose from. If you plan on using several of these on a regular basis, the discounted All Apps subscription makes a lot of sense.

However, that’s not all you get with a Creative Cloud subscription. Adobe bundles full app access with 100GB of cloud storage, premium fonts and dedicated social media tools. You also get the Adobe Portfolio website builder at no extra cost.

Then there’s the other key benefit of Creative Cloud – regular updates and new features. The apps you use today are much-improved when compared to the versions that launched Creative Cloud in 2013, and they’ll continue to get better over time. Adobe is also committed to delivering regular security updates, patching bugs as and when they occur.

All this makes Adobe Creative Cloud a formidable force when it comes to software. If you’re considering subscribing, now is a great time. If you’re a student or teacher, it feels like a no-brainer.

Adobe Creative Cloud’s All Apps subscription is available at these discounted prices until 2 Septmber. Head to the Adobe website to see the full range of plans.
