Anyone using it? Is it worth it? Can I get your inputs
If Adobe releases a new update for each product a year, it would be cheaper for Creative cloud.I already have the Creative Suite Design & Web 6 pack. Paying a monthly fee didn't really make sense to me. I upgraded from the CS3 equivalent pack and I probably won't upgrade again for a long time. One year alone for Creative Cloud is ~$590 USD. Two years of Creative Cloud would have exceeded my cost of $950 to upgrade from CS3 to CS6.
I must say, the upgrade from CS3 to CS6 was worth every penny.
Obviously it doesn't make sense for people who don't need it, and don't need to upgrade for their profession. For people who get a huge benefit out of using it however, it is cost efficient, and has quite a few benefits.other than the obvious not having to pay up front, i really just dont get this.
as an individual (and as a buisiness user) i never feel the need to buy every release of a product unless it offers significant improvement in areas I will use/need... so never likely to buy a new WP package for at least another decade for example. So far i really cant recall a single new version of any software that was so more functional that you just had to have it... well not since win3>3.1
as an ex it manager( back in the day when we had real computers ) the thought of someone else having the ability to update/change software before i had tested it just leaves me cold, the thought of trusting someone like MS or adobe to do so over a whole department or company would keep me awake at nights...
currently on CS5 so not a hope in hell of me updating till probably cs8
Such a small minded and narrow point of view you have.Yes, for hobbyists and amateurs.
There is no alternative to Photoshop or Illustrator in the professional market.
Okay, what alternatives are there for Photoshop and Illustrator that are used professionally? I've used pretty much alternative, and none of them are 'equal or greater quality'. None of them are used widely in graphic or web design either. One of the only real alternatives to Photoshop is Fireworks, which is an Adobe product.Such a small minded and narrow point of view you have.
There are plenty of alternatives which many professional people use. And of equal or greater quality.
Clearly you have a very close minded opinion and we will have to disagree.Okay, what alternatives are there for Photoshop and Illustrator that are used professionally?

While you might think my opinion is narrow and simple minded, it is just how it is in the professional market. The workflow, usability and scale of use of Photoshop cannot be filled by the likes of Gimp or most alternatives. And the ones that can fill at least a partial role of Photoshop generally aren't free. Such tools might pass in the hobbyist or amateur market, but definitely not by professionals.
And you're still not posting up examples .Clearly you have a very close minded opinion and we will have to disagree.
But everything you do in Photoshop or in Fireworks can be done using alternatives.
I see no need to list anything when 1/2 of my list is what you have already listed.And you're still not posting up examples .
You can keep on trying to insult me (I couldn't care less what you say, so you're just wasting your time), but at the end of the day there really is no alternative to Photoshop or Illustrator.
