Just a friendly reminder we are now five years out from the OP warning how Adobe was locking everyone in with plans to jack up the price on the photography bundle. We were treated to unsubstantiated claims of authority and a host of other logical fallacies as is typical of such forum posts.Do you think Adobe believes that the current price is optimum? Of course not. It is a bait-and-switch price designed to get as many customers locked in as possible.
It is useful to periodically check these kinds of sky is falling pontifications against the simple, clarifying empirical evidence of time.
So where are we five years later? The price is exactly the same as when the OP posted - $9.99 in the US for the Photography Plan. It’s been a period of relatively low inflation but still in inflation adjusted dollars the real price has dropped by about 10%.
I guess Adobe is playing the really, really long game here and hasn’t found quite enough suckers to execute their masterful plan.
And now please enjoy the rest of the forums mindful of the just how much predictive utility even posters claiming decades of brilliant commercial pricing and marketing experience actually have in the real world. Oh, and take more photos too!
