I wanted to pass along the following note from the Adobe Photoshop.com membership team:

“As you are aware, Adobe just introduced Photoshop.com membership as a part of our hobbyist product launch. We need to update you on the storage aspect of the service. In our press release, Web site and supporting materials it had stated that we were planning to offer 5GB of storage at the Photoshop.com Basic (free) membership level. This was our error: we are planning to offer 2GB of storage at the Basic (free) level. Even with this difference, we believe the offering for our free members provides a strong overall set of benefits and is competitive in the market. However, we realize that we did set expectations with customers and want to make sure we can communicate this update to you before the service takes effect. The Photoshop.com Plus paid membership storage capacity remains the same at 20GB.

Below is the revised information that outlines exactly what customers can expect from both Photoshop.com Plus and Basic membership. We request that your future reviews and stories include this information. Thank you in advance for helping us communicate this information. You will note these changes also are reflected on our Web site today (Tuesday, September 2).

‘Photoshop.com Plus membership provides 20GB of storage – enough for 15,000 photos, four hours of DVD-quality videos or a combination of both. Online back-up keeps memories safe from computer failure or natural disaster, with access from anywhere, via a personal account linked to the software. Photoshop.com Basic membership can be experienced for free, providing 2GB of storage, access to photos and videos virtually anywhere and online photo sharing in a fun interactive environment.’

  1. Anyway, there is huge slippery slope for allowing such service from the major photo software company to prosper. I don’t think Govt. will hamper them with any antitrust legislation. So, my hope is on existing well established and budding services, not related to the Big Software.

  3. One thing to note, the storage space (membership program) is not available outside the US either.

  7. 2GB is enough. Right. Saves me from having to even glance at this “service”. They’re talking a different class of hobbyist than the average TWIP listener, I think.

  9. Even 20 gigs for a paid membership is not nearly enough. After four or so years of hobbyist shooting I have somewhere between 300G-400G. This prompted me to set up Windows Home Server and use KeepVault to back up all of it for $100/year.
