Does anyone have a subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud? What are your impressions of the SASS model? Is there enough value to continue paying for a subscription?
As an owner of a creative group I like it because it spreads the cost out over time and lets me scale smoothly. When you have to buy a computer ($1600-3000 plus an Adobe license) it becomes much more difficult to bring on a new person.
much better price than before, but it feels insane to pay indefinitely for a one-time download. especially when programs like Sketch costs the same as 1 month of Creative Cloud. top it off with the discontinuation of Fireworks, and I'm officially on the market for non-Adobe alternatives.
But does that mean abandoning PS or AI all together? I"m all for using something like Sketch along with PS
even something like pixelmator can easily replace photoshop for a fraction of the cost. granted, i don't do too much photo editing.
bottom line: adobe's pricing is in the dark ages.
I plan on signing up. I already use things like Typekit, bringing it all under one payment will be handy.
I think its such a good step for Adobe to take.
I'm so happy to hear someone else say that. It seems that there's been a lot of back lash about a SASS model for adobe
I have one, only for Photoshop. I think it's a really great subscription model that have a rather low entry fee for professionals, especially those who are not ready to come out with few hundred dollars for a piece of software that can be outdated in the future.
So far I am pretty happy with my subscription.
I like the new strategy of Adobe CC instead of the CS-pack. As a soon-to-be graduate, the price is getting more beneficial for students and harder to pirate. Good stuff, imo.
Yeah, it's really good. Easy to stay up to date every year. I signed up for a year when there was an offer — so I pay around £25 / month for every app Adobe makes. Over the year, that works out to be pretty darn good value.
