Wow!


Curious, what kind of kick ass games does Isaac have in his folder?

Swing and BongoGame are standalone programs themed on the movie "George of the Jungle" (recommended) while the others need a CD-ROM ... these were from when he was two -- he's playing somewhat different games now ...

You know, the subscription model not only costs the monthly fee, but also the cost of constantly upgrading hardware and operating systems and internet access -- something a large proportion of the population (or at least one person I know of!) simply can't afford. If I wanted to use the current version of PS I'd have to spend at least several hundred dollars replacing otherwise-working equipment.

FWIW I do most of my editing in PS 5.0 (appropriately code-named "Strange Cargo"), released May, 1988 ...


AFAIK you don't have to upgrade if they surpass your hardware capabilities. I stay several releases behind sometimes because of the way each new release seems to break something. I don't know at what point what you have might stop working even if you're paying the fee, but like I said you've got 5 years of monthly fees before you even hit the break even on Ps, and another year to add the Lr component. Chances are your computer will give up the ghost before then.


That depends. I bought CS5 in 2011 for $299 (Promotion), so that's waaayyy cheaper than CC. That works out to $60/year and lowering as I type :)

I will be holding off on going to CC for as long as I can, which I expect will be when I upgrade to a camera that my version of ACR no longer supports. I haven't had any issues as far as capabilities go, and I don't use it enough at this point to justify the ongoing fee. I hope I can get it down another $10-20/year before that happens. I also lucked out in that the Canadian dollar was close to par when I bought, that $9.99/mth right now will cost me $13.12/mth, which just makes thing even worse.

As far as the program calling in, there's a period of time you can be offline before the program needs to check your license info. I seem to recall it being 4 weeks, but it could be 2 weeks.

I think LR/CS CC are worth the $10 a month. I had upgraded LR and then decided a few months later to go with CC when they lowered the price, so I wasted a bit of money. But overall, it's cheaper to pay the $10 a month than upgrade every year or every other year. And they do force you to upgrade anytime you buy a new camera (at least one with a different sensor!). (Yes, I know there are ways around it using DNG, but I am not a fan of too many processing steps.)

I will most likely fall prey to the CC at some point, but I've managed to stave it off for the foreseeable future. At the moment, it is still more program than I can handle, so the constant upgrading game doesn't apply to me.

On the contrary, by and large the upgrades make the program easier to use whilst still producing superior results...

You paid $60/year for old technology. The upgrades from CS5 to CS6 were significant, and from CS6 to what there is in the current Ps CC 2015 is another leap. And no, they don't "force" you to upgrade every time you buy a new camera. I own CS6 and I it still supports the latest version of ACR with no need to buy anything more. That said, the features introduced in CC over CS6 make "renting" the software more than worth it.
