  4. Enter your billing information

Adobe makes it easy to sign up for a subscription as a student or teacher, especially if you have an education email. The only equipment you need is a web browser and your personal and banking details.

The student or teacher discount for Adobe brings the price of the entire Adobe Creative Suite down to $20 per month for the first year. After a year, that price bumps up to $30 per month every year. If you aren't a student or teacher, or if you don't take advantage of the deal, just Adobe Premiere Pro costs $21 per month. That price difference isn't substantial when dealing with only one app, but the student or teacher deal gets you the full suite, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.

If you subscribe to the entire Adobe Creative Suite and aren't a student or teacher, it costs $53 per month. That means over your first year, you'd save almost $400. Even after the price jumps in your second year of the plan, you'd still save over $275 per year.

Adobe Premiere Pro allows you to create complex, multi-layered video edits. You can also use it for basic to intermediate audio edits. It's a great software to use to take your videos from start to finish.
