What Adobe's Creative Cloud software means for designers

The very latest versions of Adobe's design tools – including Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesign CC – will soon be available exclusively through its digital subscription service, Creative Cloud.

The move means you'll no longer be able to buy the latest must-have design tools in the shops, or even download them for a one-off fee, but exclusively as a monthly subscription: $19.99/£17.58 for individual titles, or $50/£46.88 for the whole suite of tools.
