Alternatives to Adobe Creative Cloud

January 10, 2014  by: Domenic J. Licata

Last November we announced that we will not be upgrading from Adobe CS6 to Creative Cloud, and we cannot recommend that students buy into the CC subscription model. We will continue to use CS6 as we research suitable alternatives.

We will use this post to compile our research. We do not necessarily endorse these products at this point. We will announce our recommendations in the future.

Feel free to leave comments and suggestions.

    Microsoft no longer supports Expression Web 4.

    Replacements are WebMatrix 3 (free for Windows) and Visual Studio 2013 (Windows only)(Depts can get it and give to students via DreamSpark)

    Paint.NET (Windows only) is a good free alternative to Photoshop, especially with 3rd party plugins.

    We too seek alternatives for Adobe products. For now, our most immediate concern is to find alternatives to Dreamweaver.

    ColdFusion Builder – This seems to be Adobe’s successor to Dreamweaver and currently is not part of the Creative Cloud program; it can be purchased as a stand-alone product – http://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-builder/features.html?promoid=FDUMF# .

    CFEclipse (http://cfeclipse.org/ – Eclipse IDE required) – free

    Another alternative to Premier Pro:

    Sony Vegas

    I am subscribing to Adobe Creative Cloud, however. There is a Academic rate when you give them your Buffalo.edu email address of about $22 / month.
