I used to love adobe LR and PS. Now PS eats my computer when I have PS and LR open, they now charge full price (which is very expensive) if you are more than one version behind, try to make money off you monthly with the cloud and now won't work with touchscreens. What's the point of a 'normal' amateur photograhic artist like myself buying this? I want to buy a new touchscreen convertable laptop/tablet for my photographic art but it seems adobe don't want me to use PS on it...am I missing something or are they cornering themselves out of the market or into particular hardware?
How would you expect to use Photoshop with a touch screen, exactly?
Photohop seems all about precision, and not to mention has pretty tiny UI elements. Seems to me your finger would just get in the way more than anything else.
Pros use stylus type interfaces (e.g., a Wacom Cintiq) for the precision and not having one's own hand get in the way of seeing what one is doing.
Plesae understand, I'm not being critical of your request. As a non-touch user myself I'd just like to know more of what you're thinking.
for eg the sony duo (and I assume Flip but not checked it out) uses a pressure sensitive stylus which works with some software but not PS - as far as I understand there has been a standoff between adobe and someone in MS, but lets face it Adobe will loose csutomers not MS....for pcs at least. So I am wondering if MS laptops don't support adobe/adobe don't write for MS pcs, do anyother pressure sensitive stylus-touchscreens computers support PS (or adobe support them?)
As far as I am aware those tablet issues that have plagued Windows 8 have been solved some time ago.
