    Re: Adobe is going to only sell subscription based Photoshop

    It looks to me like you validate your machine, then download the software. You either buy Creative Cloud at $50/mo and have access to a bunch of adobe software, of pay $30/month for access to just photoshop. With paid access you download the software and validate your machine once a month, so there is only a need networked once a month. You are fed updates when they are ready, assuming you have a internet connection, or when you are ready if your connection is periodic.

    It might not have the upfront cost, but it will cost significantly more. If you upgrade periodically, like many do, every other product cycle, you pay $200 every 2 years. If you just get a photoshop subscription at $30/month that costs you $720 every 2 years.

    Is there a version of GIMP which supports 16-bit editing and embedded ICC profiles ?

    I think the low-priced upgrades subscriptions are introductory offers and can't be locked in past the first year. I love Netflix for $8/month and MOG for $15/month--the subscription model is great for media. PS and LR for $40-$50/month is excessive unless the apps are making you money.

    I only use Elements and an old version. Really just for printing and adding text. I use LR, NIK and AS.

    By real, do you mean people who create lots of small image files and need to perform simple repetitive operations on many at a time ?

    If I read this right it will be $600 per year for us as we need the full creative suite, rather than a single purchase once every four years.

    So your saying that people who don"t print photos in the darkroom are not real photographers. That is a bunch of CRAP. There are many "real" photographers who shoot fully digital or who use hybrid film/digital process.

    According to your logic you could day that people who use water colors are not real painters, or that photographers are not real artists.
