I care, but I'm careful not to put much personal info on facebook for just this reason. I don't trust them at all, but I do want to keep up with friends all across the country. I especially will not put my best photos on there due to this type of thing. (Not that my best is very good. It's not. Still mine though.)
Beep em. Still not good enough.
I have an old Pentax tough camera that I bought for a trip to Hawaii a number of years ago. Pictures are not that great, but I can take them underwater. I can take pictures while kayaking in the ocean where the camera is certain to get wet. I can throw it in my pocket and go places that a larger or less resistant camera wouldn't survive. Works just fine for me.
Would I use it for pictures that need great quality? No. Then, that's not what I bought it for. It works great for what I did buy it for. When this one wears out, I'll get another tough camera. Because sometimes the world is a tough place for a camera to be.
Seems like a pretty good list. As they said, we don't have to agree with everything. There is certainly enough here to make it worth the time and thought it took to do it, read it, and consider it.
Looks real nice if it would work for you. Wouldn't for me, so I'm not buying.
If this is good enough, I can remove photoshop from my phone. Just say no.
It's not low at all. High priced as a matter of fact. That IS the major complaint. The heck with them.
EarthSmiles: This is the holy grail for software companies: Keeping customers on the hook with monthly subscriptions...in perpetuity. Isn't that what Microsoft is doing with the latest version of Office? May both Adobe and Microsoft fail miserably with these ploys (think of the backlash Netflix experienced from their customers), and may some smart competitor step in to take advantage of the customer dissatisfaction.
LibreOffice. Cures the MS dependency. Works quite well.
As for Photoshop? That will take a bit more work. I do like Corel Painter, but it is a different kind of tool, and only partially fills the void.
It is interesting to me that the tone of this article basically says: Screw the user, we are doing this because it will work better for us. You guys will just have to like it.
Photoshop is an excellent product. There is no question of that. However, there are other products that will do most of what it does at less cost and without the superior attitude.
It will be interesting to see what happens over the course of the next couple of months. Often, when a change comes about, people react with outrage at first and gradually get used to it. This might happen with CC. Then, it might not. I sure won't pay for it.
Arrogance is often lethal in the software business. Adobe has experienced this before. How is flash on mobile working for you guys?
I keep planning to buy one of the Adobe creative suites. Until now. I have very old versions of Photoshop, but I really wanted to update. My desire is quenched.
I don't do subscriptions. Never have. Never will.
I doubt that this will be a good move for their business.
Looks like the typical BS to me. We want more control of the market so we will squeeze out any competition. I have never bought a nikon product. I will continue not to do so.
