I have no desire to rent any software. It's a trap I don't want to get into.

Get it into your head, Adobe--I will not buy into rental schemes that make my software arbitrarily stop working. I don't even care if it's $.01/month. If you ever want any more of my money, offer a proper, non-rental version.

I wonder if the customer response to CC has been more underwhelming than Adobe lets on. Adobe was quite arrogant initially.

Translation: This whole concept is starting to bomb and we'll do whatever we can to make it seem viable.

Quit trying to appeal to the house-wife demographic and get back to working for professionals.

I guess Adobe have not heard of Pixelmator then?

Any Photographer can get the excellent Pixelmator for a £10 one time payment, instead of paying Adobe £10 per month forever! They can also get FREE online synced storage from DropBox or Google Drive and if they are into sharing stuff there is always Facebook. How is this an "Offer"?

Looks like Adobes feet could have holes in them eh?

Really, $10/month for PS, LR and Behance is quite compelling and each app compliments the others. If live in these apps and this bundle makes sense for photographers.

Yeah, I'm not keen on being nickeled-and-dimed to death either but times are-a -changing. I predict a ton of subscriptions for this.


The times are only changing if you subscribe to this ********.

Translation: I don't make enough money with their software so I will be opposed to any pricing structure.

If "renting" their software for $10/mo allows you to earn a living income every month $10 is less than the cost of a single lunch out.


Translation: I payed for CS3 just once and it makes me money till this day without any recurring fees.

That's simple logic.

Good job Adobe! Keep on punishing new prospective customers. I have never paid for your apps before, but would have signed up to use Photoshop and Lightroom for 9.99/mo happily.

But I guess the idea of catering to young people who can't afford your bloated prices doesn't entice you. I guess you'd rather just lower the prices for those who were honorable enough to pay in the past, and put up yet another wall between US and YOU.

I will now happily find a way to pirate your new software. I was happy using the old stuff, but now I just want to spite you.
