On article Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction (1832 comments in total)

I found this comment interesting:

"there's not a lot of photography-specific value in our subscription products"

So ... they know they are screwing the photographers, and don't care.

What are some other good Photoshop alternatives? (preferably for the Mac?)

ronm2008: The new plan makes sense for professionals. However, for amateur photographers like myself, this is a HUGE price increase. I paid $200 for a CS5 Photoshop upgrade 3 years ago ($5.50 / month over the past 3 years). I will probably be fine with it for another year+ at which point I would normally upgrade. However, I guess I will have to stay with CS5 until I find a better solution elsewhere. There is no way that I'm going to be paying $20+ a month for software that I personally don't use that often.

Very sad.

Yes ... that will have to do for me (I actually use Aperture rather than Lightroom). I sometimes need something more powerful than what Lightroom / Aperture have to offer, but Photoshop CS5 should do what I need for the foreseeable future.

Nice and original photo ... I love the reflection you see above him from the surface of the water.

Nice photo, although I find the cropping of the top of her head a little distracting.
