Upload & Sell: On
I'll rant a bit too...........have been a user of CS5 exteneded and it is all I'll ever need for photo processing, I am not a designer or graphics artist but PS gives me what I want for photo work.
Now, I purchased a new Canon 6D and guess what, CS5 does not support it and won't so I contacted via Chat Adobe last night...............Must get CS6 extended or go to Creative Cloud. My wife is a teacher, introductory for CC is $20/mo but goes to $30/mo after a year so in two years I will have paid out $600! My cost on CS6 software at Scholastic price is $349 but then it will dead end at some point for good.
I'd be inclined to pay as 'Plug-Ins' such things as Camera RAW updates or add on features that 'I' really want or need. This is like the big Cable TV companies forcing you into packages with content that you don't want or need or never ever will even view a channel of!
Sorry, guess there is no loyalty to previous users, greed is a bad thing.
Update: Just had another Chat with Adobe, absolutely brainwashed 'Viola' could do nothing but in such a rehearsed way tell me how great the Cloud is and that ALL the customers are going to the Cloud! I informed her that NO NOT all customers are doing so I am in sales and I have never seen such a silly staged presentation to 'invest' in a product, it was embarrassing to 'Chat' through Actually unprofessional IMHO
