Since Adobe moved to a subscription model to distribute its Creative Cloud suite, which include offerings like Photoshop, it’s been harder and harder for punter to avoid paying their license fees. With infringement notices issued to those doing this, it’s definitely not been easy to keep up.
However, in the chaos of the COVID-19 outbreak and home lockdown en masse, Adobe has made moves to free up their software for those who need it. Both Adobe Photoshop and InDesign now free for school students worldwide for nothing, covering those from Kindergarten up until Year 12.
The goal is to help those who use the services at school easily take the software home, with free access now being granted up until the 31st of May. Access has to be granted by an IT admin so head over to Adobe’s website to fill out the request form.
