Petition Started To Bring Back Adobe CS - People take a stand against the Creative Cloud with a petition to 'restart the development' of CS7.

Student and keen photographer Derek Schoffstall, from America, is taking a stand against Adobe's decision to say goodbye to 'CS' by starting a petition that's, so far, received over 1000 signatures.

At their Creativity Conference this week, Adobe announced that they have 'no plans for future releases of Creative Suite or other CS products.' Instead, the software creator will be focusing on the development of its Creative Cloud (CC) - a subscription service through which all of Adobe's 'tools' will be available from June.

On the petition, Derek says: "You should support this petition because Adobe is making their already expensive products even more expensive in the long run. Adobe is robbing small business, freelancers, and the average consumer. They do not seem to understand that every company is a not multi-national, multi-billion dollar corporation that has an infinite amount of resources."

The petition states that people should 'have a choice' between either CC or CS and that the mandatory Creative Cloud subscription should be 'eliminated'.

"In the end it comes down to this: all of Adobe's consumers will not be able to make such a large payment every month on the CC subscription model," says Derek on the petition. "In the short term, the subscription model looks to be okay, but over time the only entity that is benefiting from this is Adobe. The (no longer) current model: paying a one time fee for infinite access is a much better business model and is better for the consumer."

For more information, take a look at the petition.

Why doesn't every one vote with their feet as the saying goes and buy other products.

Quote: buy other products.

With the exception of Photoshop Elements, Do you have any suggestions for a full on software that has everything you would find in Photoshop, A product that works with an interface that is not a nightmare?

Perhaps Paint Shop Pro, But for this to be a viable option it really needs Corel to seriously get this programme sorted out, As it stands its a dog, A screw, A nail, But it does have potential if and or when they iron out the bugs.

Personally I would buy anything that was not made by Adobe, Largely because of their attitude towards the consumer end of the market, The latest scam of upgrading software in a very short timeframe, Then blatantly ignoring the previous incarnations along with the Mugs who paid for it.

Well there is only so long you can keep milking the golden cow before it dries up.

So bring on the competitionRather than trying to Petition the greedy, Make your point with your wallet, Not your feet or your pen/keyboard......Grin
