What makes me nervous is what happens after the year is up.
They jack up the price. Then what. ???
So these CS6 apps are 64 bit?
Why does Activity Monitor say 'Intel' and not 'Intel (64 bit)'?
I downloaded everything as soon as it was available. It's been working flawlessly.
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?
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.
so... stupid question but does everyone pay the obligatory 49.99 a month? upgrading from 5 but can't run the trail.
Here's a deal for $29.99/ mo for the Student/ Teacher edition.
- used to be 19.99/moomg
- she's neither. she's a freelancer.ohhhhhsnap
- if she's done something mysterious ...i'll post it here.ohhhhhsnap
- shes probably claiming to be a studentomg
- So here it is, she upgraded from CS4 last August and got the deal. not a student or teacher.ohhhhhsnap
- can't get that deal today. ah well. thanks omgohhhhhsnap
I pay 49.99/mth
So, did anybody answer the question about no internet? I've been wanting to 'learn more' about the cloud version but never really read about it or pay too much attention.
What are the cons?
It checks every month and at that point, you need to be connected so it can check your subscription. Otherwise, it's exactly like how it was before. You still download the software (massive files) and install it. Essentially, they're trading a serial number for a subscription, whereas a serial number can be hacked / patched but a subscription is based on your Adobe ID and how many devices you have it paired with (right now it's 3 devices per subscription but you can only have one app open at a time across all devices).
I like it a lot, and it's cheap. The fact that you have access to all apps and it's easy to update is nice.
So, fyoucher1 it's pretty much an anti-pirate move.
Now, do you download the apps or work from the cloud? And why would you need 20GB of space? I usually save stuff to my computer or HDs.
Again, pardon my ignorance but like I said, I never got to check out CC. I know.. I sound like an old man.
Another question, how about agencies? How does it work then? Does the office pay for everyone and everyone gets and account? Do you have to pay for your own?
I wouldn't necessarily say anti-pirate move, but giving a wider offering of apps and also giving a way to pay monthly rather than having to dish out $3k for the master suite or other big chunk of change for another suite all at once.
I would think the folks who would mostly be affected by this would be those who are used to buying ONLY one app like Photoshop and only upgrade every few years. I would imagine there are way more folks who use more than a single app and that the price range is more than reasonable.
It'll prolly help with piracy but that's bound to get hacked one way or another.
20GB of space: think of that like DropBox. It has nothing to do with how the software works. Its just a place to store your work in the cloud if you want to. I don't use it, just save to my drive like I normally do.
Agencies: They have Creative Cloud for Teams, although I'm not sure how that works exactly. I'd imagine there'd be some kind of discount for purchasing in bulk.
Nice, thanks sir. Last question (probably not true but whatever...).
So, when you pay, you get to download the apps? What happens if you don't renew? Can you still use them?
Also, what happens if they decide to charge $120/month out of the blue? Are you obligated to keep paying?
Sorry for all the questions!
- if you don't renew, your subscription is up and the software doesn't workmonospaced
- ... and they could decide to fuck you any time they want.zarkonite
- well, that's not true if you know anything about what Adobe's plans aremonospaced
- I'm listening monospaced...OSFA
- then you knowmonospaced
- I can tell you that their plans are not to increase prices out of the blue that's for suremonospaced
Honestly who the fck actually bought the CS suit part from companies?
Perhaps if they made it cheaper people would buy it.
I have CS5, got it from a friend who worked in Adobe, was 70€ ~ the whole suite.
All owners of CS 3 > get a 20 bucks discount monthly on these new apps.
Could this be the second one today?
I guess so...
