Adobe Creative Cloud pitched at Ps/Lightroom users

Adobe is offering discounted membership to its Creative Cloud service for existing Photoshop and Lightroom users

Adobe is offering a heavily discounted AU$9.99/month membership to its [[artnid:Creative Cloud service, for existing Photoshop and Lightroom users with perpetual licenses to version CS3 or above.

The offer is available to Australian and New Zealand customers, though Adobe's Creative Cloud does not offer billing in New Zealand dollars -- AU$9.99/month equates to NZ$11.56 at the time of writing.

The special membership provides the user with the latest Photoshop CC, Lightroom 5, 20GB of online storage via Creative Cloud, and Adobe's Behance ProSite online portfolio service for artists and designers. The package is 50% the price of a single-application Creative Cloud subscription which would get you either Photoshop or Lightroom individually, (AU$19.99/month, NZ$23.12) and 20% the price of a full Creative Cloud subscription that grants you the entire Adobe Creative Suite (AU$49.99/month, NZ$57.83).

The offer is only available until 31 December. However, the pricing is indefinite: Adobe's Michael Stoddart, Creative Cloud manager for APAC, clarified in a press release: "$9.99 is not an introductory price. It is the price for eligible customers who sign up before December 31, 2013".

An alternative offer, available until 3 December 2013, discounts a full Creative Cloud subscription from AU$49.99/month to AU$29.99/month (NZ$34.68), for the first year only. The offer is available to existing owners of Creative Suite 3 or above.

Creative Cloud is Adobe's monthly subscription programme for its popular Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign and other art and design software. A full subscription allows the user to download and install any of the included software for Windows or Mac OS X. Membership to Creative Cloud also provides online storage for sharing of creative material, and access to various online services such as the aforementioned Behance ProSite.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
