It's more to do with finding new ways to part you from your money.

As you say yourself, they've done nothing to avoid the piracy issues.

I can't see why some get upset with Adobes policy. If you don't agree with it and there terms, you just go elsewhere.

What I would say is 9 per month, for some is more affordable than 500+ upfront.

I'm sure there are those that would prefer everyone at Adobe to work for free, so Photoshop can be downloaded for free without breaking the law Wink

I have a subscription to CC for just under 9 pm, I think it is a good deal.

It allows me to have fully updated versions of Photoshop and LightRoom. There are a lot of other software packages available but I do not not use them.

You could say the same about yourself, where CC's concerned Paul.

We're just on opposite sides of the fence.

Meaning you want something you pay for it, simple. Trying to find ways around buying something is what they are trying to do, as Microsoft are and others are following.

You had to pay for it the old way as well.

Hi.

I`ve just gone for the monthly plan fort Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 for 8.78/mth.

When it`s accepted the payment's, it comes up with Photoshop CC in a drop down menu and in the same menu it says Photoshop CS6 and doesn't mention the Lightroom 5 option.

What now????

HELP!!!!!

Hi Nigel

If you haven't got sorted...

You need to download Adobe Creative Cloud from the Adobe website. Then log into Creative Cloud using the registration email and password you would have set up when you opted for the Photography package at 8.78 pcm.

In Creative Cloud you have an Apps option. In Apps select the PS CC option and download it. When I did it I then couldn't find an option to download LR. So I logged out of adobe Creative Cloud and re-started the computer (I use an iMac).

I then re-opened Adobe Creative Cloud and logged back in. LR was now an option under the Apps. I selected it and pressed install. It worked for me and perhaps you are having a similar problem.

I hope that helps.

Something else to watch out for (depending on your operating system) is that if you have ever had to enter full administrator mode to make any changes, then it would be best to download and install using the administer account.

I found that bit a total nightmare and a right pain since I`d just upgraded my PC and operating system and was not expecting it.

Had an interesting little hiccup yesterday when my CC app suddenly stopped working and wouldn't let me sign in. In doing so it also reverted Photoshop to a trial version. Having had a little scout around this seems to have happened to quite a few others as well recently so had a online chat with support who talked me through the fix pretty quickly. Sat here now waiting for PS to download again.

Quote:Is it a downloadable programme or is it internet based?
Photoshop, whichever version you use, is downloadable and runs as an installed programme on your machine.
The 'cloud' bit in the name is slightly misleading.
With 8gb. of RAM, (that's what I've got) you should have no problems with it.
If you want to find out, you can download and use Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 for a thirty day trial period.
Mind you, in thirty days, while you might get to grips with Lightroom (you can save a lot of time and heartache if you avoid the libraries function like the plague), you'll barely scratch the surface of Photoshop.

Nope, its not one bit misleading, it is what it is.

Yet bizarrely, a lot of people think it is.
That's probably why the question gets asked.

Were has it been stated that CC is misleading, so far I`ve only seen you making this claim, obviously because you have never used it.
