    Re: Adobe is going to only sell subscription based Photoshop

    How old are some of you? So maybe we should shoot back something about the cost and availability of film? Come on this isn't high school and were not cheering for our team or taking pot shots at the rival team across town.

    And yes I challenge anyone to prove I am not a "real photographer" Grow the f__k up. This is serious for some of us.

    FWIW since my love is film and my paycheck comes from digital all of this kind of stuff affects me deeply. The last thing I need is more fixed overhead with no control of how I pay it. One of the reasons I survived the recession while most of my competitors filed bankruptcy was because I carry very little debt and fixed overhead. I HATE THIS.
    Thanks,

    I would happily participate in an angry public letter / petition.

    Yes I agree with Kirk, my passion is film and my paycheck comes from digital.. Both can stand up to scrutiny.

    I'll bet Google can come out with something better, and cheaper

    look at what they did with Nik software. Bought the company, then "bundled" the software all together for the (prior) cost of [1] program. I don't use those programs, but I know individuals who do, and are overjoyed at not having to pay $150/per, give or take.
    Guess its good to be a luddite(of sorts).
    Buy CS6(I'm still running CS4, and more than happy with it) and just don't upgrade anymore, just transfer the same software to new machines as you build/acquire/upgrade them down the road.

    But tripling the price(more or less) sure might piss off a lot of individuals, and professionals...

    The business model that all these companies hope to achieve is keystroke licensing.

    They will charge a nominal fee (e.g. 1 cent) for each keystroke or mouse click.

    It makes a whole lot more money for them.

    This cloud nonsense is just the enabling mechanism for that business model.

    I see it as inevitable. I signed up. It becomes a fixed cost, I can live with.

    I will have to do it to. But I don't see it as a long term fixed cost-actually its only a fixed cost for you for one year. Not for the next or the next or......

    I doubt it. The complete suite is decades in the making and constantly mutating. I have tried everything else. Not even close.
