I did not say there was anything wrong with Adobe doing it. I gave my opinion on the question why should loyal customers get a better deal. I just disagreed with what was stated, thats all. I guess since I do not agree with you I must be wrong! I am so sorry to disappoint you sir.

I said you were wrong where you said Ford does not give special deals to certain customers. They do...just like Honda does for me.

You didn't disappoint me. I just wanted to point out customer loyalty happens in all industries, and frankly I'm glad it's happening with Adobe as I spent enough money through the years on their products and am glad I am getting some appreciation for that fact.

Well those other people already paid by purchasing PS and most likely upgrading a few times. Why should you get the same deal as some more loyal customers.

For the reasons mentioned in my previous post. https://photography-on-the.net …p?p=16272567&po​stcount=22

Unfortunately, the people who have loyally invested over the years in the Adobe products probably have the exact opposite view from you...that they should get a break compared to this new guy waltzing in at the last minute looking for a deal. And I would totally agree with the long term supporters.

Now, would you give a client a better deal if he was a repeat client for the last 10 years and has brought you say $100,000 in revenue over those 10 years compared to a brand new never seen before client? I know where my loyalty would be.

I am retired but, when I was working as an Optician my prices were set. My service was worth a set amount (determined by the market) If I were to give all of my loyal patients a discount I would have been out of business. The ONLY purpose of a business is to make money and that is what Adobe is doing. If anyone feels that the price is not fair they should just not buy into it.

What I don't agree with is the view that paying an extra $120 (more than your competitor across town) is a good business move. Worse still it isn't actually $120, because he is getting PS & LR. So to compare you would actually have to pay $120 + the cost of LR more than your competitor to get the same thing. That to me is something a business should be concerned about.

Conclusion
Renting software = good business
Paying more than competitor for less = bad business.

I should mention I don't use LR so that's irrelevant. Obviously, I would rather not pay an extra $120 if I didn't have to. $120 is still $120. But in the grand scheme of things, I'm not going to worry too much about an extra $120 a year. I realize that perhaps isn't the best attitude to have but it is what it is.

I have CS6 & LR5. If I subscribe for a year I will spend $120 and will probably use a small subset of all the new & neat features. If Adobe raises their prices and I stop my subscription all I will left with is CS6 & LR5. Or I can spend $80 after 18 months and buy the LR6 upgrade. I just have a difficult time with the concept of an open ended software rental.

I'm in the same boat.
