Creative cloud upgrade

If you own any product developed by Adobe, such as Adobe Photoshop, then you know that all of their products are membership-based. You pay a subscription and they provide you with the product, constant updates, and the newest versions when one is available.

However, these memberships differ in terms of functionality. For example, you can have a membership only for Adobe Illustrator, or you can have a membership for the entire Creative Cloud.

One thing many people don’t know about is that you can upgrade your membership from a single app to a complete Creative Cloud membership. This means you don’t need to first unsubscribe and then make a new membership.

How can I upgrade to a complete Creative Cloud membership?

You can upgrade a single-app Creative Cloud membership to complete Creative Cloud membership from the My Account on the Adobe website.

  1. Sign in to your Adobe account from here
  2. Click Manage plan or View plan for the plan you want to changecc membership
  3. Under Plan & payment, click Change plancc 2
  4. Choose the desired plan you want
  5. Choose your storage and billing frequency
  6. Click Select
  7. Review Terms and conditions
  8. Click Confirm

What happens when you change your membership plan?

When you make these changes, the existing plan is canceled and you get a refund for it. Keep note that the refund is based on the date when you canceled the old plan.

The new plan will go into effect immediately, and you will be charged for it. Now that you’ve made the change, your monthly billing date changes to the date when you change the plan.

Reversing the action and going back to a single app membership can be done by following the exact same steps, so canceling the full Creative Cloud membership is extremely easy.
