Top Three Reasons to Upgrade to Adobe Creative Cloud

If you are an Adobe product user, by now you have probably heard about the Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe's subscription model for Adobe's world class creative tools: Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Dreamweaver, Adobe Premier Pro, After Effects, Adobe Acrobat XI Pro, and Adobe Muse.

Adobe Creative Cloud represents a revolutionary change in Adobe's business model, and Adobe has already reported 2 million creatives leverage Adobe Creative Cloud tools for their photography, video, audio, and design needs.

I've been working with Creative Cloud for over a year now, and I'm excited to say that the product is awesome. There are so many benefits to joining the party and moving to the cloud. With Adobe's current 40% saving promotion going on until May 31st, there is no reason not to subscribe. Below, I highlight some of the key reasons that many of our customers have chosen to upgrade from Adobe Creative Suite to the Adobe Creative Cloud.

Automatic Updates
What version of Acrobat are you on? Do you have the newest features in Photoshop CC? With Creative Cloud, users don't have to worry about keeping up to date with new releases. The focus can remain on creating amazing content with Adobe because the products are in the cloud. When users subscribe to the cloud, Adobe products are automatically updated with software enhancements as they are released.

Not only are these updates convenient, but they can save money for many users. Each product usually has an individual fee to upgrade. However, while subscribed to the cloud users only need to worry about the cost per user, not per product.

Easy Deployment
With Adobe's Creative Cloud there is an administration console that allows the administrator to easily view who has what license and reassign them to another user as needed. When Fig Leaf started using Creative Cloud for our own creative use, the happiest person in the company was our Director of IT, Mike. Before Mike had to manage all of our licenses and keep track of the different Adobe products and when each needed an upgrade. Now that Fig Leaf is on Creative Cloud, Mike has more time and can manage our Adobe licenses with ease.

Support and Training 
Adobe offers a library of online tutorials for Creative Cloud products that are routinely updated. These tutorials are in addition to the full-time support line Adobe provides for Creative Cloud customers to answer any additional questions about Adobe products. Fig Leaf Software also offers the Creative Cloud for Teams, which gives users two one-on-one sessions with an Adobe product expert each year. Adobe has invested heavily in Creative Cloud, and if offering full support to help ensure its customers are happy.

Some of Creative Cloud's other noteworthy features include: up to 100GB/user of cloud storage, certain apps such as Lightroom now working on iPad, and has the ability to work without internet connection
