Adobe, the developer of the world renowned photo editing and creative program Photoshop is changing the way they make their tools and services available to their consumers.

Now though, with the emergence of cloud-based streaming, customers will now access the new iterations via Adobe’s Creative Cloud. This change has been made to potentially lower piracy significantly while enabling subscribers an easier way to stay up to date.
