I noticed this morning that my Cloud storage allotment had increased from 2 TB to 3 TB. Have I missed a notification or email recently? I have not heard any news concerning this unexpected increase of Cloud storage at no extra cost.

Correction? I just signed into LR to get the version number and it still states that I have 2 TB of Cloud storage. But the plan on my account on the Adobe website says 3 TB.

I have heard some rumblings but don't know what was finally decided. I'll see what I can find out.

As I recall from when I checked my account this morning, the standard photo plan with Photoshop and LR Classic now has 1 TB of Cloud storage.
That would surprise me more, but this is Adobe, who knows!

I’m not seeing an increase, except on my account. The apps still show 2TB, but my LR plan shows 3TB.
it was suggested to me in the Adobe forums that I sign out of the Adobe apps and then back in. When I did that it appeared to have no effect, but the 3 TB appeared in Lightroom the next day.

Not here its not. Still on 20
From what I can see this only applies to the LR Cloud-based subscription, not the LR Classic one.

Given the Lr Classic subscription also gives one the option to use Cloudy I cannot see why they should be treated differently. Unless of course there is a thought to break up the Photography Plan.

I can't find my meeting notes but it was just the biggest plans that were gaining additional space for the same price. I think it was 2TB and up.

Mmmm. I see. So should that not mean that the cost of cloud storage should drop overall? That would be a fair approach or is Adobe now starting to penalise the smaller player, or at least favour the larger?

I can’t speak for their future plans, but the fact that they’re doing it without being forced can only be a good sign. It’s not very often we’re given more for our money!

But we are not all being given more for our money are we? Just a selection of us. That's my point it is selective.....why?

They undoubtedly have a higher profit margin at much higher cloud storage bands, compared to the cheapest packages, and therefore have more room to move. That’s not unusual, if I buy tins of beans in bulk, they’re cheaper than buying one at a time.

I believe it applies to any Adobe subscription that previously had 2TB now has 3TB, not just Cloudy. I believe the 5TB and 10TB plans also have increased storage. Although who has that much cloud space, I have no idea!
