  1. Adobe’s powerful graphics editing software isn’t exactly known for being cheap. But the company is lowering that entry barrier for a limited time by opening up their subscription-based Photoshop Photography Program to everyone, whether or not they own or have...

    I really hate this new subscription stuff. Creative suites are a lot better IMO. They should follow Autodesk and offer a suite + subscription based software and not just one.

    I completely agree. I don't see too much of a big deal with offering both. They probably just think they can appeal to a wider audience if they make things simple and just offer a subscription based plan rather than both.

    Either way, $9.99/month is a REALLY attractive offer for even Photoshop alone - let alone the other extras. I don't use Photoshop other than for the occasional personal project, so shelling out the hundreds of dollars for the software isn't as appealing as a subscription model.

    Smart move. I'm not really interested in the subscription model given all the software I use, but they are setting themselves up to be the Netflix of content creation at that price point.

    Autodesk is looking into the possibility to offer more subscriptions, but I doubt they will use it as their only means, or at least as Adobe has done so drastically.
