Decisions are made with not your best interests, but the shareholders best interests, always has been, always will be. Thinking any differently is just being naive.
And now you want to give them your money after Adobe spent 10's of millions of dollars investing in PS and other products and moved image processing forwards while others sat still. I know who I'd rather repay...the ones that brought us here, not the ones that bailed on us long ago.
Not at all what I said, added to which your two posts seemingly contradict each other.
Let's not digress, yet again, into another Adobe CC discourse. It's all been said many times over in this forum. This is about alternatives - for photographers. Interesting that you're the only poster who raises 'Corel', so far, as a reason NOT to look for alternatives.
Care to be proactive instead of naive ? Today, most of us have a copy of CS6 (either suite or PS) plus Lightroom 4 or 5, on 'perpetual'.
(A) Continue on CS6 plus Lr perpetual and take your chances.
(B) The $9.99 long term PS-LR CC pricing offer (giving Adobe the 'benefit-of-the-doubt') is probably in our interest to at least consider. It's $120 a year. Give Adobe a year or two (to protect our asses) and see how thing develop. If we don't subscribe we're committed to alternatives or, should we change our minds later, an annual subscription of $240 instead. You can do the maths. $120 is insurance.
Neither of the above options negate the fact that it remains in OUR best interests that there should be viable alternatives.
Now, if it's ok with you can we go back to sharing our 'notes' ?
