There’s no question that Adobe is the undisputed heavyweight when it comes to building fantastic tools for creatives. I don’t know one photographer or graphic designer that doesn’t have at least one peice of Adobe software installed on their workstation.
And with the introduction of the Creative Cloud, Adobe cleverly created a frictionless road to frequent updates — that is for those willing to pay their subscription fees. This subscription model is a nobrainer for millions of photographers worldwide. But for others, specifically the people who only use one or two programs… and rarely update… it’s not much of a bargain.
Still, it looks like “the cloud” is here to stay, and with it, a regular “IV drip” of features from the Adobe mothership.
In this episode we discuss the latest update to the Creative Cloud, and we find out whom on the panel is actually getting their moneys’ worth out of their “all you can eat” subscription.
We also discuss Adobe’s newest service — Adobe Stock which will be integrated into the majority of Adobe’s applications. Is this a rebirth of stock? Or the final nail in the coffin.
