A Mass Exedus From Adobe

Anyone else seeing people leaving Adobe all over because they cannot afford the $60 a month subscription fee? That's the reason why I stayed away from that deal from the beginning. My income varies too much month to month as do my expenses. I am see it here as well as on Facebook.

Sign up on Black Friday every year and you get a better deal. Once you do your expiry date coincides with it. And I love not having to "buy" their software, I like the "lease," only issue is I overpay because I don't use the full suite. I only us PS and once in awhile AI. I should really consider the two programs instead of the suite. I am not an editor and only used PP a couple times. But I think the business model is great.

PS. Mass exodus is redundant. An exodus is a mass exit.

That's one way around it, IT. I must be using Adobe software for a good 30 years now, starting out with Photoshop, then, Illustrator, then Premiere. Back then, they understood customers cannot afford to update every year and I got some great cross platform deals with them having Macs and PCs from the early 1990s. But, that was when the economy was better. I still buy Adobe Premiere and Photoshop Elements with every new computer because they are perpetual license software. But, subscription software is getting out of control with so many companies jumping on the bandwagon.

Next Black Friday see if they have the deal, and call to "cancel early" without penalty so you can resign up. They usually allow this.

I'm good with what I have right now. With Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5, HitFilm Pro, Sound Forge Pro, and Roxio Titanium Toast, and Photoshop Elements for my iMac and Magix Vegas Pro 15, HitFilm Pro, Sound Forge, Nero Disk Burning suite, Photoshop Elements for my HP Omen, I seem to have all the bases covered for my needs. Even Magix wants to get on the subscription bandwagon now.

And, when you know one editing program, the others are much easier to learn.

It's subscription software and not perpetual. A year from now, if you cannot afford to renew another year, you have nothing. With perpetual license, you still have full use of what you paid for back then.

That's exactly why I like it. I bet it cut down on TONS of piracy. They used to want like $700 bucks for one piece of software. Never did that. Now I can get the suite, and always have the latest versions, for the cost of cup of coffee a day.

And, that's why I don't like it. My finances are too insecure. We all cannot depend on having a job a year from now. And, if unemployed, use the old version to make a demo reel for work. Their software being pirated is not my problem. My income is.

They have monthly, and per-software plans as well.

Without income, that's useless.
