Thread: Whats the verdict on Adobe CC?

    Re: Whats the verdict on Adobe CC?

    A great competitor for PS is around the corner: Affinity Photo. The beta is already fantastic. Doesn't eat or waste RAM. No need for PS anymore. Oh, wait, the price is less than 50 US$ - and it is YOUR product, not connected to a cloud or credit card.

    Another 48/16 bit image editor is PhotoLine. 64 bit app, Windows and OS X. Small, fast, stable, 59 Euro for the download. Runs with PS plug-ins. Doesn't waste or eat RAM.

    Use Gimp, why pay at all?

    Affinity is Mac only, a non-starter for many of us.

    Gimp is 24/8bit only. If you want 48/16bit, you have Affinity and Photoline for small money.

    I like I can use CC on both Mac and Win simultaneously, 2 installs allowed.

    The Affinity software is what I was looking at. It seems like a Photoshop program. I'm more interested in a Lightroom replacement if that goes to the cloud and that's where on1 may come in.

    I had many doubts and voiced them. LR and PS CC works like a charm. Somebody comes out with something better I'll dump it but until then it fills the bill in spades,

    I've started using Lightroom 5 for most adjustments out of the camera. Dropped the subscriptions for the full Adobe package because I wasn't using most of the products any more. I get by with Lightroom, Photoshop CS6 and dreamweaver CS4. Just downloaded the Affinity Photo beta and found it to be very intuitive. A decent replacement for Lightroom, but not the full functions of photoshop. So looks like Adobe gets my 9.99 a month for the next year. there are just some things that require layers.

    I use Coldfusion at work, and have gotten spoiled by the ease of developing with it. I liked the macromedia products before adobe bought them. I used to write my own games in flash and did all sorts of neat things with photographs, objects, and text. But the subscription model does not fit my budget any longer.

    GIMP never really worked for me. and the Mac drawing tools are just ok.

    That is my assessment also, Affinity seems OK as a replacement for Lightroom but it lacks many of the essential editing features I use in Photoshop.

    I have owned every other upgrade of Photoshop since the early 90s, up to CS5. I considered outright purchase of CS6, but the current education pricing of CC at $9.99 a month seems a better deal to me than CS6 at $299. I don't really understand concerns about the credit card issue, the charge to me was for one year, non-recurring unless an extension of the contract is approved.

    I used to use think highly of Gimp and still think well of it for the price and open source goodness. But photoshop CC runs circles around gimp for performance. And it handles 48 bit images. Haven't tried Affinity yet.
