Everyone on my Tumblr dash, PLEASE watch this. Especially if you are a creative artist:
Adobe is going to scrap their hard copies (disks) for their software (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash), and have you pay a subscription for the latest software called the Adobe Creative Cloud. $50 per month. Could you really afford such an expense in the long run?
This is really disturbing. Please hear what he has to say, it really is a serious situation for working artists. Pass this along so others may know about the Adobe Creative Cloud and how horrible it is.
Yep… Just went to see how much Flash costs. You know, to just buy the program? Guess what? After spending a while looking, it appears that you CAN’T anymore. You have to pay an outrageous subscription fee. I hate adobe. Is there a petition going around to stop this nonsense? Because I want to sign it.
Thanks! I know a lot of artists and people who like art follow me. You guys should go sign that.
Today I just signed the petition in the voice against the Adobe Creative Cloud. For those who are not familiar with what the new Creative Cloud can do to you as an artist, I really suggest you watch this video.
For those who have seen, reblogged, faved, here’s the link (as shown in the previous reblog) to sign the petition. Anything can happen, Adobe really needs to know that many artists are not supportive of them controlling not just the software..but the content worked on the Cloud.
Signed! Boosting the signal, I prefer to be able to buy my software.
I’m not going to fucking SUBSCRIBE to Photoshop. What the fuck do you expect me to tell people, “sorry, can’t do your commission this month. Couldn’t afford the Photoshop rent”?
No way. This is unacceptable and must not happen! WATCH THE VID AND SPREAD THE WORD, GUYS!
While I agree that subscription based programs are bullshit because you can’t go back and edit your files if you cancel the subscription, Adobe CC isn’t actually more expensive than CS6 is right now. The cost of downloading Photoshop CS6 is $700, while subscribing to Cloud for a year comes out to $600- and you get substantially more software. To buy the Creative 6 Suite Master Edition- owning all the programs that you would be subscribing to on Cloud, is $2,599 dollars, which is the equivalent of being subscribed to Cloud for 4.3 years.
Say you bought CS6 for $2,599. Sure, now you own it, but after 4.3 years, most designers would want to upgrade. (The guy in the video said he would upgrade every 2 years- twice that amount) Another $2,599, making a total of $5,198 after initially buying it and then upgrading it after 4 years. With CC, you would have only spent $2,599 in 4 years, and $5,198 after 8.5.
The fact is that Adobe products have always been overpriced, and CC is no different. While it does cause inconveniences if you cancel your subscription, the cost is arguably less than if you just owned the programs. (Not to mention that student prices are a mere 40% of regular prices, coming out to $1,032 every 4.3 years, compared to $2,599)
