2018 Adobe Updates:

Adobe is now offering Adobe Creative Cloud Student for 70% Off for the first year. this is a great opportunity for graphic design students, illustrators, video students to try the cloud.

For photographers and the like, they also have "CREATIVE CLOUD PHOTOGRAPHY". This version of Adobe includes Photoshop, lightroom and other tools for $9.99/mo. They used to give you 2 months free for the first year if you paid the annual price. But, unfortunately, that is no longer the case. There is no discount for paying the annual fee. You can learn more at Adobe's site.

In my recent meanderings out on the interweb, I came across this, somewhat obscure, deal from Adobe for their Creative Cloud student edition. Unfortunately, I can't take advantage of it, but thought it was worth sharing especially because it seems kind of hidden.

You can visit this page at Adobe to see the details for this limited-time offer on Creative Cloud membership.

Here's a Quick Run down of the Creative Cloud Student Discount:

There are eligibilitiy requirements. You can views those requirements and the 70% offer deal at Adobe. Click the "Check Eligibility" link.

Quite honestly, I haven't quite decided if I'm ready to commit to the creative cloud version. I'm running CS4 right now and am trying to decide between Adobe CS6 and Adobe Creative Cloud.
