You guys....Wow... 1500 posts to say the same thing.
"The CC model does not work for the hobbyist photographer". Most hobbyist I know really don't need anything more then picasa anyway, or at the very most elements. they think they do....but they don't. BUT if they want it.. well, who said any hobbies were cheap? Pro's will pass this cost to the customers. End of story.ll No matter how wildly used PS was never a program for the masses. That's even the ones who "got in early way back in 2.1"
True, Designers and video guys get the lion's share of the 30+ programs and are the ones who will not bat a eye at it.As for photographers with a web presence, don't discount prosite. Its very good. I dropped my squarespace sites and moved my url's over to prosite and I am SAVING $30 a month. So CC is putting money back into my pocket.
Sure, I am worried about future price increases but that's at least a few years out.
