As a result of significant changes in Adobe's licensing programs, especially their pricing models, Drew has had to make changes to our Adobe offerings.
In the past we were able to pay a flat fee for multiple concurrent licenses of various Adobe packages. While we still technically own those licenses, the software is not upgradable from the Creative Suite 6 (CS6) versions, and while it currently works on Windows 7, it may no longer work on future versions of Windows. Customers who have Adobe software currently on their computers under this license can continue to run it.Current licensing options:
NOTE: If you've been using the Adobe Creative Cloud software in the Art labs for your class, please look over the information at Temporary Personal Use of Adobe Creative Cloud Due to COVID-19.
Adobe offers a 60% discount to students for the Creative Cloud package. Please visit http://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/buy/students.html to find out more and decide if this plan is right for you.
For more information, please consult the Adobe VIP Academic Licensing Guide.
Adobe Acrobat XI Pro Licenses
|PDF creation/editing||We have a site license for PDF-XChange Pro for creating and manipulating PDFs. Microsoft Office and Google Docs can export files as PDFs.|
Users preparing images for the Web might also be satisfied by any one of a number of free image editing websites (Google search). Smartphone or tablet apps for image editing, many free, may also be used. These options will not be supported by UT.
|Video editing||Macs come with iMovie. Most smartphones come with video editing tools. Again, there are free video editing tools. Users who are seriously editing video would be candidates for buying Premiere or Final Cut Pro.|
|Web page editing||Most University web pages no longer need an external editor such as Dreamweaver. WordPress will use the standard University template. Moodle and other tools also automatically format their webpages. Faculty/staff users who wish to have personal pages can now use Drew Domains or Google Sites for their web pages. Blogging sites have their own templates and don't require the use of Web editing tools.|
