Photoshop going subscription-only; please do NOT do this with Elements...

May 8, 2013 11:46 AM

Hi all,


As some of you may heard already, Adobe is switching Photoshop to a subscription-only service.


For the love of all that's holy, please tell me Adobe is not planning to do this with Photoshop Elements. (Right now, I know that's the plan; what about the future?) I'm just an enthusiast, not a pro.

    Adobe has too much to loose from the backlash. Just watch the stock price.


    No professional will let themselves be beholden to Adobe to access their artwork. Photoshop CC is a big gamble for Shantanu Narayen, CEO of Adobe Systems. For many, CS6 will be the last revenue, Adobe ever gets.


    Serif, Corel and Gimp are seeing a great opportunity.
