Update or pay the price.

If you’re a loyal Photoshop user, it might be time to re-budget and update your subscription.

Adobe has warned owners of its Creative Cloud software that they’re no longer legally allowed to use old versions of its products.

Users of outdated Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere, Animate and Media Director have received emails from the company telling them to upgrade their software. If they refuse, they risk facing legal action.

For a lot of customers, this could mean forking out more money for new subscriptions or losing old software features they still need.

Adobe stated on Twitter that the move has something to do with “ongoing litigation”. This may be in reference to a recent lawsuit filed by Dolby against the company for copyright infringement and breach of contract (the whole thing’s super messy, but you can read more about it here).

Check out an example of the full warning letter below.
