Adobe just announced their plans for the future.
Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and all their professional softwares have been discontinued, replaced by a “cloud” subscription version.
Well, for me, it’s like they disappeared from the market: I use Photoshop and other programs for my work, but usually I update every 2 versions, paying 5-600 euro every 4 years, with the big advantage that the software is mine, forever.
With their new pricing, now it’s a subscription, with prices that reach 100 euro monthly!!!!
Maybe for a big corporation a 100 euro subscription is small money, but for a small contractor like me it’s a LOT of money.
Maybe it’s because last year their revenue was “just” 4.4 billion of dollars, why not try to make more and more?
