Of course they shut it down. It's easier to censor than do right by your customers..I for one will never use them again after the way they've treated me this year. They're getting greedier every year and a lot customers have had enough. I see plenty of complaints on their facebook page as well.
I plan on canceling my subscription (and changing my bank account so they won’t keep charging me). What gets me is that suddenly tons of bloggers (usually with non-Wnglish) last manes are singing the praises of Creative Cloud 2018. These poor folks are probably getting paid pennies to post favorable, scripted reviews for the company. I tried replying to one of the bloggers who claims you don’t need to connect to the internet to use CCloud. Of course my post was never approved published. And you can never get a straight answer from Adobe, as of 2018. I have to keep downloading updates and connecting cdrative loud to the internet, which is absolutely killing my hotspot data. This is the year I part ways with Adobe, especially if a mod decides to delete my post just to hide the truth of this godawful 2018 CCloud debacle.
I honestly just can't handle this whole new CC thing.
I got Adobe CS6 about 4 years ago and have been using it for most of my work as a graphic designer. But with recent OS updates to my Mac, CS6 apparently doesn't work properly anymore, actively corrupting files while I'm working on them for clients, which means that I have to look for alternatives. As it is, I'm paying off a ton of money in student loans and I already live paycheck to paycheck. I don't have it in my budget to pay for a new CC monthly or yearly subscription for each individual product I use for all eternity. And with horrible internet connection, software downloads and updates take 3+ hours. I don't have the time for this stuff either.
I'm so sad and angry and completely frustrated by this.
wonderbreadz I would seriously look at alternatives like Corel Graphics suite. Since Adobe took up the whole "FU" consumers attitude plenty of non subscription (paid & free) alternatives have popped up.
DXO paid but inexpensive and has Upoint built in with Nik suite on the way
DaVinci FREE absolutely amazing video editor easily matches Premiere Pro & After Effects I prefer it over PP but you need fast GP & Ram
Hope that helps. Don't worry you'll pay off those loans and it will have been worth it in the end.
