Adobe's move is a hotly debated topic, here on this forum and elsewhere. I don't really think it is so bad, since PSE and LR will apparently remain available outside the CC, pretty much as it is today. And those are the programs a typical hobbyist will be using anyway, since the full blown CS is fairly expensive already. The 'Cloud' makes sense for the professional and maybe the more extreme hobbyist. In terms of what you get, it is a huge amount of stuff, well beyond just PhotoShop.
Subject: Update about 'Adobe Systems Incorporated: Eliminate the mandatory "creative cloud" subscription model.' on Change.org
Thank you all for signing this petition! In just 4 and a half days we already have received more than 5,500 signatures from professionals, designers, freelancers, hobbyists and photographers from across the world.
Firstly, I wanted to inform you all, that as of late yesterday and early today there have been news articles written about this petition, including an article by CNNMoney and ComputerWorld. This is a small victory for us! As the media picks up on the fact that there are people out there who aren't in favor of Adobe's new changes, this petition will only continue to gain traction.
Secondly, I wanted to let you all know another important detail: As I have been reading around the web, I noticed a considerable amount of misinformation from both sides about the CC subscription model; those confused about the specifics of CC as well as deceitful propaganda coming from everywhere. Adobe has cleared up a few "myths" and misconceptions about CC, but nothing they have said has addressed the underlying issues. I wanted to let you know this so you all can be vigilant and support this petition for the right reasons.
Thirdly, know that this petition is not my petition- it is ours. There are many troubling problems that arise from Adobe's change from licensed, owned software to a monthly rented subscription service. This petition is a conglomerate of many differing, yet valid reasons, for changing Adobe's minds. Do not be afraid to leave Adobe your honest feedback and rationale in the comments section of the petition page, and let your voices be heard!
Finally, with all of that said, continue to share this around with everyone you know! Also think about sharing this petition on Twitter. You can link to this petition using this: http://mnch.us/adobe2
. Also consider signing a petition by Corey Edwards, which asks adobe to reconsider their Creative Cloud subscription plan terms and pricing. You can find his petition on chang.org here: http://mnch.us/adobe
This isn't over yet.
