I think they've been pushing up the price of upgrades so that this will look like a better option to us. I like owning the software. There probably are benefits to the cloud, like getting ongoing updates. But if you were comfortable with the features of an older version of the app you didn't need to keep paying.
$50 is a REALLY good deal and makes it affordable for a lot of folks that aren't in a big $$$ company. Almost seems too good to be true. There's gotta be some catch.
It's saying "entry price of $49.99 per month if you sign up for an entire year". What I want to know is what is it after that year expires?
"I know you're in the middle of your project but you subscription has expired and Creative Cloud is NOOOW $100 a month!!! Who do you think we are Macromedia? Hahahahaha! Adobe-Apple Systems Inc 2013".
Just signed up. First year for anyone that has CS3 or above is $29.99 a month for the first year.
Just registered to upgrade to the Cloud from cs5 -- whats the best way to install? I've gotten mixed messages on best practices, some say to completely uninsall before installing the update, others say its ok to install on top and run both. Any way to keep saved workspaces/preferences/etc either way?
Implying Adobe ever actually fix any bugs at all and don't just fix them in the next CS revision for $$$$.
I signed up for it. I'm excited.
WTF are you guys talking about?
I'm getting sick of Adobe, and there so called new updated products. That 3D shit Adobe put in PH is just a waste of bloody time, and I would of loved a update to managing layers in PH instead of gimics no one wants. Update that save time, help work flow, and speed up production are what I really need, not how to make fucking 3D boxes.

- Nope, windows type rendering is still awful.animatedgif
So, are there any new features that make this version worth getting? Something useful, like a color palette in Dreamweaver?
Looking back at my most recent version, it doesn't look like I ever opened Flash or Fireworks. I use Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver, almost exclusively. Rarely rarely use Photoshop.
Is any of the new stuff ever going to save me enough time that I'd get back the money invested in the new version? Plus I'd have to make up all the time I spend installing it, and learning how to find where they put all the tools I like.
Why would I want to pay more than 11 cents to get more Adobe software?
If this is what I think it is (I haven't gone over the fine print) it's perfect for me. I want to be legal but I don't have that kind of money at the moment.
$29 a month here in AU for the education edition. I'm sure I can find a StudentID somewhere...
you now work in salons
So I'm still happily using CS5 for print and photography.
Give me the top 3 legitimate reasons I should start using Creative Cloud.
I'm being serious here, I don't see anything compelling on Adobe's website. Their main selling points seem to be "Share on beehance" and the useless Kuler iphone app. Amirite?
CS is actually pretty good at working side by side with older versions. I've got 4/5/6 installed at the moment with no problems.
Don't think they migrate your settings in all cases.
I still use CS3 and have yet to really need to move beyond it. Even if I were doing a ton of work at home across multiple programs I would really need to be sold on why to upgrade. I was going to move up to CS5 when I got a new Mac last year, but the cost was too high for being two versions back.
I don't do nearly enough work to justify this subscription service, but for some people I'm sure it will be perfect.
What makes me nervous is what happens after the year is up.
They jack up the price. Then what. ???
