The Photoshop Photography Program for CS3+ customers has been extended to Feb. 28, 2014. Thanks to D. Brent Walton of Photography by db Walton who forwarded me this email he received from Adobe: Adobe also confirmed with me that the deal is extended for customers who own version CS3 or higher on Twitter.
@chiseled_images Hi Andy, That extension is for CS3+ customers; the deal for "everyone else" ends Dec 31. _Sue.— Adobe Creative Cloud (@creativecloud) December 23, 2013
The link referenced in the email to “Join Now” is http://click.mail.adobesystems.com/?qs=9122f82e3c260df6683369aed903945a7e28b799fb48284fe1d7c700ee1069fdbb45f6e25c5d2aed
Though I still think this is a great deal and you should join now rather than waiting till later, this says a lot about Adobe’s desire to please the photography community and listen to it’s customers in spite of all the backlash this year over the Creative Cloud.
