Adobe provide great tools for creating graphic images for print or for the web. They also provide great tools for touching up and enhancing your digital photos. If you’ve ever need to create a PDF, then Adobe Acrobat is the best choice — after all, they invented the format in the first place.
An excellent way to get all these tools is to buy Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Design Standard, but if you are on a tight or limited budget — perhaps you’re a student or considering a career change — then this package of software can be very pricey.
Fortunately, Adobe offers a subscription plan for this most useful software package. For only $65 per month you can have a completely up to date, and constantly updated versions of:
- Photoshop® CS5 (699)
- Illustrator® CS5 (599)
- InDesign® CS5.5 (699)
- Acrobat® X Pro (449)
Buying new copies of these programs would cost you a total of $2,446, but Adobe’s very affordable subscription program gives them to you for $65 per month (with a one year commitment).
