| p.1 #1 · Weird spot to be in with regard to Adobe...advice needed. |
So, I'm at a crossroads right now with regard to what to do with Adobe software (as if there is a need for another thread). I'm an educator who uses CS4 daily (all of my classes use it), and own CS5.5 at home (got it for $40 due to a glitch on Adobe's site back in May). I'm just now receiving parts for my new computer build, and had planned to upgrade to CS6 (most likely Photoshop) until I read the press release two days ago.
I primarily use Photoshop at home, but I use the Design Premium suit at school. I was planning to begin to do some video editing with my new build, and was considering purchasing the Production Premium suite at the educator discount. However, as much as I dislike the Cloud service change, I could take advantage of the temporary discount ($19.95/month) for the full cloud educator discount and have access to it all, and after a while, if I don't like it, or see that I'm not taking advantage of most of it, let it expire and fall back to CS5.5 PS for now.
I really do not see the value in paying a subscription price for long term usage, so I would not be willing to do this for several years, so then I was thinking that possibly just purchasing CS6 and riding it out for now would be better.
Really torn, and what would you suggest to best future proof myself given this situation (assuming I will still need to have access to stay up to date for curriculum in the school)?
