How young are you? you seem to exhibit the 'it does not cost THAT much!" attitude. It adds up...
If you put $10 away each month

In business, $10 is a paltry cost of doing business each month. To a hobbyist, it can get very costly in the lessened ability to accumulate savings.


We were talking about the monthly subscription as a business expense, Wilt. Alveric is saying he refuses to buy CC because he doesn't want to be under the control of another company, while I said that a monthly subscription from Adobe is no different from my telecom company, domain and website host, cell phone bill, corporate line, etc. All these can get expensive, but if someone needs it, they need it. If they don't, they don't.

CODB. Cost of doing business.

OP, in his original post or any of his followup posts, has not indicated his status as a working pro or as simply an enthusiast. While YOU are a business, we don't know about the OP.

I expressed the downside of subscription-based plan vs. perpetual license one time purchase, and compared the relative costs of the two using my own current status as an enthusiast, in the context of a 10 year period (my own).

While your status as a photographic business enterprise is not being dismissed, neither should the fact that the majority of folks on POTN, who might read this subject out of interest -- since they are trying to set themselves up as a beginning enthusiast -- be armed with information so they can make a choice suitable for their situation. There are some poor starving college students and retirees here, not just pros. I am expressing information for their benefit, not to convince you to chance your thinking and circumstances.

I think you are getting confused. Please reread the last few posts in the thread and who was quoted. I was talking to Alveric in the post you're nitpicking, in which we were comparing opposing philosophies on business expenses. Unless I quote you, I'm not directing my message towards you or what you're saying about amateur expenses.

What you and Alveric are each espousing, as both being photographic business professionals, is fine as a debate between the two of you.
Nevertheless, we don't know the perspective of the OP, nor do we think most POTN members treading this thread ARE in business with their cameras (OK, there are those 'weekend warriors' who derive side income, but that isn't necessarily being 'in the business'). And that is why discussions broader and outside the context of business is indeed appropriate. NOT trying to quash your discussion with Alveric at all, but we are not confining the thread to that context, either.

Yeah, I don't think my conversation with Alveric conflicts my discussion with you at all..I do think you and I are getting them mixed up though... I already agree with you that there are cons to subscription for budding and amateur (lovers of the art) photographers. I think that's a choice every person needs to make for themselves.

Even from a pro's standpoint: I absolutely refuse to buy into Arsobe's Creative Pop. I refuse to pay subscriptions. I don't need the latest and the greatest. And there are other reasons besides money for my stance.

One is this auto, painless and effortless updating. I don't like it. I want to be the one in control over when to update or even whether to update at all. Futhermore, what if there are features that I heavily use or I like, but then, in a collective brain fart, Adobe decides to remove said features. SOL I'd be, because Photoshop CC is in flux and you can't revert to the previous version, sorry. Apple is notorious for arrogant stunts like this.

Actually, both of the issues you mentioned have easy workarounds. Regarding the updates, you are in control of whether or not an update is applied so if you do not want to apply an update you do not have to and you can continue using the installed version.

Also, you are able to revert to previous versions (external link). In fact, when you install a new version you have the option of keeping the old version installed so you can run multiple versions side-by-side.

Thank you for the detailed info, and it was much needed to know about the option of reverting to previous version.
