Once you take advantage of the offer, then that is your base price as long as you maintain your subscription. It is possible that prices may rise in the future, but, this is not like the other offers where the price rises to the regular price after a year.
Hope that helps...
Hi Mike…yes and no…once again the language adobe uses is not clear. Base price, as you've explained it, means nothing about future price increases. As Rhossydd points out, 'it would be naive in the extreme to think anything will remain a constant price'. The adobe saga continues. now it's 10 dollars a month to start without the 'guarantee' that it will be 20 after the first year. Still, year two could be 20 or 25 dollars a month. It could be more.
I'll wait till the offer is released mid to late september. Try and make sense of the adobe 'language'. See how much a month it will cost me in euros. 15 euros a month, 180 a year, every year, with ever increasing prices is too much.
Like many others, I no longer trust adobe. That is why I search for some clarity in any of the announcements. Man oh man, Adobe could use a good public relations firm. But wait, it doesn't seem that adobe wants to speak clearly to the customer. The number of shifts in pricing and policy in the last year or two is just amazing.
It's a slippery slope all you employees at adobe are facing. I wish you all the best. How long before they lower the guillotine (I currently live in France), and start shedding talent because the subscription model no longer needs the level of innovation or day to day care to keep the software up to date, bug-less, etc.? How long before the shareholders want job cuts to increase their profits?
I'm currently not tied to any company or client base. I can use the software I want to use, so long as it does the job I need. I'm now testing Photoline. I'm going to try Capture 1 and aperture in the months to come with the intention of dropping Lightroom.
Renting my work tools is still a negative proposition for me. Greed from adobe. No choice. The 'our way or the highway' hard sell. Not for me. I wish I didn't have to search for alternatives. I've used Photoshop for around 23 years. I'm a long time customer. I'm loving Lightroom too. Adobe no longer wants me as a customer. It's pretty clear.
kind regards to you and welcome to the forums...
