Is the original Adobe CC Photography Package no more?
« on: September 27, 2018, 10:04:13 am »

Been trying to help a friend find the original Photography package on the Adobe US site and all that is there now is a $9.99 per month deal for Lr CC (not Classic) with 1TB cloud storage ... or the bigger Lr CC, Lr Classic, Photoshop plus 1TB Cloud storage for $19.99.

Did I miss an announcement of the change? Will this change current subscriptions? Anyone else notice the change?

Mark ... how did you get to that link?

Here is a screen shot from last night ... and it still comes up now ... can't find the 20GB plan anywhere with reasonable navigation ...

I forget - just navigated there from the products page. If your friend copy/pastes that link I provided into his browser he should be able to order the plan for 9.99.

That's exactly my experience with your link. It works as expected:

I agree Mark's link does indeed work, though,  try getting to that result from a cold start on the Adobe home page ... it an exercise in futility. It really shouldn't be hidden. It is reminiscent of how they went out of their way to hide the perpetual version of LR6.

How are new users supposed to find it. Mark is a nice guy, but new prospective users may not know to come here and use his link to get there.

Not at all sure if this of any help as I am U.K. based but...
A search using Adobe CC brings me to this page where the photography plan is shown you may have to scroll down.
https://www.adobe.com/uk/creativecloud.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIldXZv_bb3QIV7rDtCh21bgRUEAAYASAAEgKdTfD_BwE&sdid=88X75SKR&mv=search&s_kwcid=AL!3085!3!273769967925!e!!g!!adobe%20cc&ef_id=W60wcwAABCD4rLAj:20180927193531:s

AFAIK you should get a warning if you are not in U.K. to switch page

Well they could use the "Google machine".  ???
I typed "Adobe Photography Plan" and this is the first link that came up:
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography.html
And as you can see, the $9.99 plan is shown lower down.
Hidden? Please.

Sure, you can google it ... but show me how you find it starting at Adobe.com

Easy!
1. Go here: https://www.adobe.com
2. Click on this link on the page for Creative Cloud shown below which after all is one of many Adobe products: https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud.html?promoid=ZP46FD38&mv=other
Click see all plans:

OK, interesting, I see that the https://www.adobe.com page differs IF you're logged in or not. Since I'm a CC customer, they recognized me so the web page looks quite different than the screen captures below. The #2 (click on CC) isn't there. 
You go to this page. But to see plans, there's a different GUI: Creatively & Design dropdown shows View all Plans.
Now I see LR for $9.95 and the Photography plan for $19.95.
Mark, you signed in as a subscriber like I was and if you log out from the Adobe page, does the price change?
EDIT: Look on the Apple store:
https://www.apple.com/shop/product/HKW02ZM/A/adobe-creative-cloud-photography-plan
$9.95 ($119.95 for a year). So does Amazon.

OK, I was able to replicate it. I did as follows: www.adobe.com > View All Products (very bottom of page) > Lightroom Classic Buy Now > Photography Plan 9.99. I was not logged in to my account. They key is to go to "View All Products" and not get all hung up in the BS manner they've organized their web page.

But LR only, or both PS and LR? There was (is as I provided) a plan for both at $9.95 per month.

I'm pretty sure it means both, because it is called Photography plan, which is both - even though one clicks on Lr itself to get there.

But on the page I was on, I could toggle between LR and Photoshop. Something is weird here. I think their page may be wrong as both Apple and Amazon provide as you state, both products for $9.95.

Finally others are seeing what I have been seeing ... very inconsistent results ... hopefully it's just work being done behind the scenes to the Adobe site.

Please let’s not begin the conspiracies again; probably a mistake on that page. Both Apple and Amazon, probably others, as shown, sell the plan with both applications at $9.95 per month. The “buggy” page makes no sense if you toggle the two options as well. It’s stated as a “Photogrpaphy Plan”,but a plan with one application and no additional storage? This Adobe page shows two $9.95 monthly options, one with BOTH applications but less storage OR just LR with far more cloud storage:

I recommend your friend use Mark's link and jump on the deal for $9.99 per month while the page is still there and then slip out quickly and quietly.

Or purchase from Apple. Or Amazon. Or......
It really isn’t that difficult to find that offer on “ the internets”:)

Geez ... don't get your knickers in a bunch. Who said anything about a conspiracy? I was simply pointing inconsistencies when navigating the Adobe web site.
