Downloading CC? Sure, previous non-cc versions that aren't compatible nowadays...

This is a good deal imo
Stone cold from me - anyone who buys into such a software as a service ball and chain must be insane. Adobe got away with it because they already had a large captive user base dependant on their products.

If Adobe already have you by the short and curlies you are already renting from them, if they don't why would you want them to?
Great price, I got this the last time it was reduced, works out cheaper than the monthly photography subscription, heated added
CC is a rip off compared to traditional software pricing where asked a hobbyist you'd buy photoshop once and use it for years!

Don't think so somehow.

Photoshop and Lightroom are both great products, nothing else touches them in my opinion. They're constantly improving them as well. Photoshop has always been about £600 and Lightroom was £120 for so. The fact I can get both of them for £7 or £8/month is a good deal to me.Most photographers using these packages spend thousands on equipment, this is a relatively small cost.

What? Can't you use Photoshop CC as just like you said for buying it the one time and having it for years?
This is a good price for Photoshop CC, most photographers paid around £200 (in today's money) for a package and skipped a generation or two before buying it again. £79 for a year is a fair price and how it should be priced by Adobe. If you don't want a subscription service, try Afinity Photo on the Mac, this has the majority of features used in Photoshop and is much cheaper, you just need to learn a new button layout style. It's all about using the tools for the job!

Except the huge difference is their £200 package was a perpetual license meaning what they can do with it today they can still do in 30 years time without paying an extra penny. When you stop renting CC it stops working and you have no access to anything you did with it previously.

If you bought every update the price wouldn't be much different, the difference is with Adobe renting it as a service you have to buy every update that means more money out of your pocket for them - which is why they did it.

Adobe had a large captive user base which they could and have screwed over. If you are already being screwed over you don't need this deal. If you are not being screwed why would you want to start - buy something else.
All good points, but what would you suggest as an alternative? Gimp is getting there but isn't comparable to photoshop yet.

Do Adobe still sell the standalone Cs products?

If I buy this can I download for pc and Mac (I use both) or just one or the other?
Thanks, OP. Heat from me. Was going to buy the 12month from Adobe at £95, and see it's gone up to £107 - more than 12 times the monthly price!
As a design professional I am loving adobe as a service. the constant new features and accelerated development is awesome. I would have had to spend the same amount of money on upgrade licences in the old days.

And how does the renting software as a service allow Adobe to accelerate development if not by their customers giving them more money?

I pay £1500 a year for a maintenance subscription on a more specialised software package. That entitles me to support and ongoing package updates. The difference is that if I stop paying the £1500 the package continues to function in its current state, I still have access to and can re-work all the jobs I ever did with it. The package provider does not require me to pay a monthly ransom to retain access to the work I have done.

What adobe is doing verges on extortion and I would not have anything to do with it. Lots of other software suppliers would like to do the same because it forces customers to give them more money. Adobe told its customers to bend over, only the really dumb ones are saying thank you.
Posted this same deal a few days ago and it went cold. HUKD is a mystery sometimes

Insane, I am? Finally, I've got a diagnosis! Thank you Solly, I will be forever in your debt, and no doubt in Adobe's debt too. I also use Office 365 - does that further confirm the diagnosis?
Your work is not held ransom, you can still open many of the files with alternative software.

if everyone paid for their Adobe software like I did they could afford to do this sort of accelerated development. now I am paying less for up to date software and am getting more features.

Piracy is killing ownership. Do you think you own the music and movies you buy on iTunes or Google play? Do you think you own your photos and content you upload to Facebook? That game you bought that only has 80 Meg's on the disc and downloads 3 gigs of content. Do you think you own a house when you are paying a bond?

if ownership is so important to you, it is time to go read the t&c of the services you sign up for.
