I have just graduated my Masters at University.
All the design was supposed to be done in the creative cloud on university computers.
I HATED it.
Nothing is where it should be.
Everything took way longer than it should have.
So I abandoned the cloud and went back to Fireworks.
Apart from using a virtual machine and installing a trial version every thirty days.
How can I run this ancient piece of software that nobody wants, that I love because:-
I have invested YEARS in learning how to use it.
It does EXACTLY what I need, no extra bells, whistles or bloat
It runs on any old computer I have around, with or WITHOUT internet access.
I also hate it...a LOT! My wife is an underwater still photographer and I shoot underwater video. The majority of the time, we are out at sea and do not have internet. If we do have internet (such as when we are near a port) it is limited and slow. (Working on the/a cloud is out of the question). When I am not at sea, I am not going to subscribe to a service that I will only use a few days of the year. I have a very capable computer and do not need, or want to use a remote computer (and the internet) to do our photo processing. As stated above, it is slower and more cumbersome. When I work, I want to work on MY computer. We've switched to other brands of still and video processing/editing software.
