During this month I have tried the new service: Adobe Cloud.

But it would be interesting to know which other applications can be given for this Application.

Do you use Adobe Cloud for some specific action? :D

personally I think its a rip off since you never own the software and therefore are chucking money away… at least if you buy the DVD you can sell it on again…

Just my 2c

I just got a new computer today and this weekend i will be getting cloud.

Only £27 a month so a bargain and it will keep giving you the latest version of the software.

I will let you know how i get on!

Since I got the cheap monthly deal on it (had CS3 master collection before) its pretty good in my book! And don’t forget, you can install the whole collection on 2 computers, so laptop and desktop or whatever ;)

Plus you get all the latest updates. I reckon this is the way the industry is going, for better or worse; look at Office 365 and even the SimCity debarcle!

Yeah I’ve got it. I just see so much benefit in having the latest version and being up to date. In the long run, it doesn’t make a huge difference.

I am definitely sad that everything is moving towards subscription based… Still debating whether I will be getting office or not.

Well, this is just about as much of a choice for anyone as it is to buy a phone on a contract or money-down. Yes, after 2 years you actually get to keep the phone (which usually is hellishly outdated by then) but other than that not much of a difference.

If you have the huge lump of cash needed for the CS version you need, by all means, go for it. If you don’t and you’re just starting off with nearly no investment liquidity, you might as well go for a subscription, buy it for a year to get it at a better rate, and pay it off through the profit you make having that software.

Of course there’s also the option of working your way up to having the cash to buy it directly, but that means torturing yourself with various freeware alternatives for as long as it takes to put the money aside…

p.s: unless you’re a TF author, or very successful on any other Marketplace, my statement relates to an actual running freelance-business…

I never heard of Adobe Cloud before, but seems to be a great service, I might try it as well in the upcoming months.
