I am a community college photography professor. In the Digital Photography courses I teach, my students learn to use Photoshop and Bridge. In the past, students could purchase PS for a significant discount. Now the discount they are being offered applies only to the entire CC Suite. Most of my students are taking their first college level photography course, therefore they have no prior experience with Photoshop and do not own an earlier version which would qualify them for the $9.99 month stand alone subscription. Adobe should understand that they are alienating both students and educators with the subscription based model. How short sighted - educators could be your biggest advocates. Instead I am in the position of advising my students not to purchase the CC but to try to dig up older versions of PS.
