Adobe has announced that the company is discontinuing its Creative Suite lineup of standalone products and making its new Creative Cloud applications available via subscription only, reports TNW.

This means that you will no longer be able to purchase the latest version of Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, etc and use it for years to come. Rather customers will need to pay $49.99 a month for access to Adobe's applications. If you cancel your subscription you will no longer have access to the software.

The switch will come in June when Adobe releases new versions of its applications including: Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Illustrator CC, Dreamweaver CC and Premiere Pro CC.

For those that already have a purchased version of CS 3 or later, your serial number will get you a 40% discount on the first year of subscription. That works out to $29.99/month. Everyone else will need to pay $49.99/month on a one year commitment or $74.99/month with no commitment. Single apps are $19.99/month.

Creative Suite 6 will still be available for purchase; however, it will only be updated to address bugs.

More details on the improvements in the upcoming CC applications can be found here.

Everything Adobe’s precious wares do is available through other sources and means, the creative are creative enough to find alternatives and hearty enough to adapt and thrive without them. The soil surrounding a monument to greed and arrogance is fertile and in its shadow the diamonds in the ruff will at last start to shine, be taken up and polished and prized as the pillar of clay crumbles to dust under its own weight and is swept away by the liberated winds that will not be chained. Adobe is a toolmaker, nothing more, and any business, tradesman or artisan that rents the tools of their trade and, if push comes to shove, is left with no claim of ownership or guarantee of availability in adversity courts disaster. Serfdoms are a shameful relic of the past and pity the sheep that would be idly herded into the pastures of a new Land Lord for they will surely be fleeced and feasted on. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance (- Thomas Jefferson); so get your head out of the cloud and see what’s really happening people.

Well I guess I get on your nerves uh? Well that's the plan. You think your words hurt me? Lol I couldn't give a fuck about what you think. It only makes me better than you. Haters gonna hate. And btw, if you would see the life I have, you'd shut your mouth very fast.

PaintShop Pro (by Corel) is almost as powerful and available as a desktop application at one tenth the price
