Adobe and the cloud
« on: August 09, 2013, 12:07:45 AM »
What are folks doing about photoshop in the clouds?

My wife's computer and my laptop are running CS4 and my computer has CS6.

My understanding is that I would need 2 (or 3? ) subscriptions to the cloud.  It may be cheaper than buying photoshop (particularly in Australia where they whack on another 30% over US prices) but if you decide to cancel then you have nothing ?  Is this correct- After 90 days what you have stops working.

It may be too soon for the fall out but what are folks planning on doing.  Is there a good review site of alternatives with comparisons?

John- you are correct. You only have the programs for as long as you pay the subscription. I have done it but then I use more than one program. As far as I know you can get the Photoshop subscription alone for around $20, which is as much as you would pay if you upgraded regularly. It is a bit a bummer as it seems that this is the only way to move forward with Adobe products such as the full version of Photoshop :(

Hi John

I'm not happy about the Adobe CC versions as I don't feel I use PS6 enough to warrant going to a monthly subscription. IF I was involve in a professional way and my living depended upon it then that would be different. I can understand why those involved with the variety of Adobe products - either singularly or multiple - will use them but this route is not for me :(

I've purchased On One Photosuite 7.5 as it works within PS and Lightroom as well as being a standalone programme. I've watched a few of the tutorial videos and some 'webinars' and find it an encouraging alternative to Adobe CC. You may want to give it a look and see what you think about it. There are plenty of vids linked on YouTube as well as on the On One web site.

Meanwhile I'm staying with Lightroom 5 (upgrade) and PS6 along with this On One Photosuite.
