1.0 out of 5 stars Adobe has a problem..., 16 Jan 2014
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud (12-Month Licence) (PC/Mac) [Download] (Software Download)
I've been a PS user since version 1.7. The real problem with Photoshop is that Adobe are having trouble adding anything new that users are willing to upgrade and pay for. Basically they needed to add some retrograde features so people would upgrade to a newer 'fixed' version or alternatively force users into a subscription model. Since virtually every user is connected to the web they need to secretly down load a hidden driver to deactivate all compatibility with Adobe products prior to a certain date, stating that all the important file formats have had to be 'updated' for security reasons and thus force users to go with the CC... I guess there are many other underhanded techniques they could use like compatibility issues with other must have apps etc etc. Note: These are only suggestions... Frankly I see users going to other apps which are capable of doing most of the core work PS does. Although I have the CS5 suite I rarely use Photoshop and still use an older version of Illustrator. Mostly I'm using Lightroom which is more user friendly for optimizing photos. The problem Adobe has with Lightroom going subscription is that I think there are plenty of other similar non Adobe apps around that people can use and probably cheaper.
Don't get me wrong PS is a wonderful application and is extremely esoteric in what it can do if you know how, however for most, users barely scratch the surface of its capability and neither do they need to do so. To be honest PS was pretty mature and could do most that you needed by the old version 3 (not CS3) where it introduced layers.
