First off this subscription thing sucks and everyone should boycott Adobe!..

I am thinking maybe try the cloud for a year and see who steps up? (this goes against everything I believe, if everyone tells them to piss off we will go back to the old way :)~)
....

I'm just very confused here?

LOL Just saying for $19.95 a month I might try it and see if Corel or anyone is going to step up and give a viable option to photoshop.

CS6 will be good for years to come, I use very little of the new doodads they added over the last years anyway and am not in a business where I have to have the shiniest of all for competition (thankfully). Looking at how Nik and OnOne etc have advanced over the last couple years though, I'm sure there will be plenty other options for most photographers.

I'd actually be happy to sub in a year or two if it were a maintenance contract that leaves me with workable software once I decide I don't need more maintenance in the future. But I'd sure like my old software car to still take me to town occasionally. 'till then I'll upgrade LR, but nothing else.

Is CS6 still available for purchase (full version)? If so, does anyone know when the drop date will be?

Only thing that will be annoying staying with CS6 is when you upgrade your camera body I highly doubt Adobe will continue to update the RAW plugin for CS6. So you will be forced to use the camera's bundled software, convert the RAW image and then bring it into CS6. This bugs me because you won't be able to make the RAW adjustments in CS6. I really hope Adobe realizes people aren't happy with idea and abandon it.

Adobe has said that the ACR8.x updates will be available for CS6 users. Any new feature will not be available, but new camera models will. Now will they change their mind in the future? Who knows.

No CC for me.

I'll continue to use Lightroom (and upgrade it as I need to) and keep PSCS5 for when I need more "oomph". I've found that I'm using LR a lot more than PS anyways.
If I were a pro shooter using PS and other CS apps all the time, then subscription may be worth it. But as a non-pro, the subscription model doesn't work for me.

This is of little to no concern for me... I use Lr to process RAW images.

So, are you planning to continue to pay $19.99/mo next year, when the price goes up?

I signed up for the $9.99 a month package. I have one month free and have been starting to look at my needs. I enjoyed Photoshop but, to tell the truth probably do not need it. this thread has got me thinking maybe I should sell my copy of Photoshop cancel my Adobe cloud and use Lightroom. Mmmmmm

I subscribed to the CC package (including InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom and a lot more) and am quite happy with it. Currently I am still using my copy of PS CS6 - I am not sure: is the new version Photoshop CC already available or still to come? In the Application Manager it still shows as PS CS6.
Is anyone already using PS CC with ACR 8 ?
