| p.2 #3 · Adobe offerts Photoshop+Lightning cloud for $9.99/mo |
Well, we're down to only ONE big problem here.
Good news: The pricing is now correct. $10/mo for Photoshop and Lightroom continually is a pretty good price. If you continually get Lightroom upgrades (which is implied, but not specifically stated, which makes me worry a bit), then the price is a good deal IF you would have continued to upgrade forever anyway. $120 a year and $180/18 months is cheaper than the $199 upgrade that typically was used every 18 months for photoshop, plus you get Lightroom in the deal too. Since I already own LR 5, it's not a big deal for this, but if the pricing includes all upgrades for LR as well, it's much lower cost.
Bad news: If you ever stop paying, you lose the latest version. This does NOTHING to address that, and as such, tempting as it is, I do not want to be locked into paying for my software perpetually in order to keep what I've already paid for. If I am part of this program for 5 years, then decide to stop, that's $600 I've paid for Photoshop and at the end I'm still stuck with CS6, which I have now. And that's IF they don't ever raise prices on this deal, which I doubt they won't.
Adobe: This is close, but still no cigar. Want me to sign up for CC? I will...IF you allow me to keep the latest version if I stop paying. (if you want to make a yearly commitment a requirement for this capability, and each yearly commitment nets you one year's version of CC, then I'm OK with that) THAT will make me sign up. Otherwise..nope.
