Dear Adobe...

    Part of this probably has to do with the fact that they're pushing a subscription model via Creative Cloud and feel like new features need to be added to justify the cost. Honestly, I would rather just pay once for Photoshop and Illustrator.

      Ironically, if they’d released a new version of Creative Suite that fixed some of the more obvious UI and quality of implementation issues, we would have been happy to buy it at any reasonable price even if it didn’t have a single new feature in it. These things directly affect how productive we are and the quality of the work we produce, and we’ll spend serious money on improving either of those things.

      There is, however, no chance at all that we will rent software on which our business depends, at any price. No improvement or new feature is worth the risk of not being able to work or of being held hostage to arbitrary price rises in the future once we’re locked in.
