Horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE. So I can spend infinite dollars just to have an upgraded version of whatever Adobe program? I don't think so. This is the end of something that once was amazing. Now I'm stuck with CS5 my whole life because I refuse to continually money. I already have a ton of college debt. NOT HAPPY, ADOBE.
Death Of Adobe?
Creative Cloud? No thanks. I can't always have an internet connection available working in the field. This will be the death of Adobe in my world. Thank you very much for nothing.
I use photoshop to produce a monthly flyer for my business. It is non-sense for me to pay a monthly fee when my usage is so nominal. Once my current version become outdated, I will using a different product.
It's great to stay up to date
We have been using Adobe Production Premium since CS3. Have been using Creative Cloud for about a year. It's great to have access to any parts of the Adobe system when we really need it, and it's great to keep existing programs up to date and have new features added immediately as they become available, instead of waiting months for a new release version. We primarily use Photoshop and Premiere Pro and Audition, with some Dreamweaver, and recently added a project in Muse, and needed Acrobat, too. Hope to get into After Effects, as well. A favorite feature has been Premiere's much improved UltraKey green screen tools.
Being able to have a desktop install and a notebook install has been key, so we can get at our tools wherever we are.
