...If, and it's unlikely, cc manages to quell privacy...
I assume you meant piracy but...
...If, and it's unlikely, cc manages to quell privacy, all you'll see is gimp take off, pixel actor we'll even better, and in cases like mine, I bought perfect photo suite which does most of what I needed to do in photoshop, by giving me layers, masking tools, etc. ...
I really do hope development for similar products picks up as I don't intend to give Adobe any of my money in the future, not for a cloud based alternative anyway. I paid good money for Photoshop in the past and I'll keep using that as long as I can, then I'll try the options such as those you've listed, but I won't 'cloud'.
I'm not a big Photoshop user anyway, been happily using CS2 since it came out! All I need is layers for compositing images, the rest I can do with other programs. I hardly ever use Photoshop since the later versions of Capture One as everything I do is raw.
