"Since introducing Photoshop CC, we’ve listened to feedback from a spectrum of our customers, from advanced professionals to casual enthusiasts,"

If they were really listening they would offer a license option.

So that seems a lot better but I still have a few questions. I already have CS6 and I knew it was the last release for purchase however it is more than I need so I was content to use it as long as Adobe kept up with updates which they said they would. LR is still available for purchase and I have V5. Apart from the cloud I was wondering what other advantages I have going this way. I suppose about $70 for LR and $130 upgrades every two years almost pays for itself. I guess being at the mercy of future price hikes is a consideration.

From the article linked above:

The one catch is that to eligible for the offer, you must already own Photoshop CS3 or higher. Henrickson noted that the $9.99 offer is not an "introductory price." It's offered to anyone who signs up for the Photoshop Photography Program by December 31, 2013.

I'm guessing this means it's offered at $9.99 to anyone who has CS3 or higher?

Also I'm new to this cloud thing so I have another question. How does this work? Do you have to download cloud versions of CS and LR? Will it effect all my custom actions in PS and Presets in LR? By effect do I need to save and reinstall them or something like that?

You install them both on your system.
You'll need to copy over your actions, presets, etc.

You can still get it for $19.99 for a single application. This is what I subscribed to.

It would be nice if Adobe offered a licensing package but I firmly believe that this is like beating a dead horse. I'm going to guess that there is no advantage to Adobe leaving Lightroom as a stand alone license package and they will move this into the Cloud offering in the not too distant future. I am still using CS6 and will probably move to CC in the next year or two as more features become available that I think are worth it. I do alot of work in some of the other apps like Illustrator, Acrobat and InDesign so I am stuck going for the whole thing. I do find it a little bit on the arrogant side of Adobe to say this is the only way you can use our products. This provides them with a steady stream of revenue rather than the massive influx at release times. I would have preferred to see them offer a choice of either CC or a personal license. CC makes perfect sense for teams in companies that work on joint projects. Quite honestly I don't see them being overly concerned with the individual photographers and would rather just dictate. This is the problem when you have someone that is so powerful in a unique market segment. While there are alternatives to just about everything that they offer none of them are household names like Photoshop or Illustrator.

I don't see nearly as many junk emails offering Photoshop via torrents and I know that they would dearly love to stop the pirating of their products. So they seem to have at least partially succeeded in this area and that is one that I am glad to see them tackle. Personally I would have loved to see them take a few hundred people that are running Photoshop under a hacked license and make an example of them in the courts. I have no sympathy for people running pirated software and they hurt us all.

I'm hoping that they will come out with a reduced rate package that will include some of their other products but if I have to pay the higher rates that is what I will have to do. The one thing that I haven't really seen them comment on is future releases. Are they just going to continue to slip in new functionality as it is production ready and abandon the new release concept. Technically this is a good way of doing it but they won't get much press on individual functions like they do when they do a full blown release.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

What? CC was cracked soon after it was released... as you posted about back in June:

The success or failure of Adobe fleeing to the cloud will depend largely upon it's competitors.

If companies like Corel do a good job of upgrading, maintaining, providing support, effective marketing, and maintaining the current pricing structure of apps such as paint shop pro, people will migrate to it and continue to do so.

If they and other competitors do not, Adobe's competitors will continue to be "also rans."
