For creatives and freelancers who need editing software while working from home during the COVID-19 outbreak, Adobe is briefly offering two free months of Creative Cloud accessâ€”but only for existing subscribers. Sign in to your Adobe ID on Adobe.com, then go to â€œPlansâ€ and click to cancel your current subscriptionâ€”but donâ€™t follow through. While in the cancellation process, look for the â€œOffersâ€ link and you should see the special discount. Click the offer, and the two months will be automatically applied to your account.
Hey photographers & creatives! @Adobe cares that things are difficult right now – they're offering two months free on your plan. Go to cancel your plan, go to Offers and you'll find this. pic.twitter.com/UZj48Y2Bsb

Youâ€™ll still be automatically billed the normal monthly cost once the 60 days are up, which could be as much as $US79.50 ($133) depending on which plan you use. Set a reminder on your phone to cancel your membership 60 days from now if you donâ€™t want to pay. Hopefully the worst of the COVID-19 turmoil will be behind us before then, but itâ€™s still smart to plan ahead.
Offering the entire Creative Cloud suite for free is a welcome move for those of us in creative fields, especially for freelancers who are losing gigs due to stream entertainment.
