photoshop

I was thinking of buying photoshop but upon opening the website I discovered it's called cloud and it's rented monthly. What happened to the old one whereby a disk was downloaded and it was a one time payment.? Is anyone familiar with this?

I just looked at their site and you can purchase the Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 upgrade for $79.

Be careful....if you get an upgrade version, you MUST have an earlier version of elements or it will not work. You will need the full version.

Adobe makes three editing packages

Lightroom, elements and photoshop. Photoshop is very expensive, but it does the most.

I got mine in a photo magazine - when I put in the disk I dindn't have to pay anything, it was all in the magazine fee, but it was for a regular price.

As a graphic design professional, I can't begin to explain how much this infuriates me. It's a money grab, plain and simple.

If you look around at stores like Staples and Office Depot, you should still be able to find the previous version. It ain't cheap, of course. As for me, guess I'll be plodding along in Creative Suite 2 until it stops working.

Other possibilities you may wish to consider: The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program, free and open source), or Corel Paint Shop Pro X6, neither of which supports a four-color workspace ... if you need four-color support, you're out of luck until The GIMP's development team finishes implementing CMYK color support at which time a lot of users will decide that Photoshop has become bloated, pricey and irrelevant.

At least there is the option of monthly payments now - I was facing having to pay around $1200 for some design basics (Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign), and then being left to purchase Flash separately for around $300. The joys of no longer being a student. I think it's going to cost around $50/month for me to have access to the basic cloud package, which at least doesn't mean I have to come up with a lump sum. But if I weren't needing some of the more sophisticated stuff I'd just go for an open-source program.

Still, it's not as crazy unreasonable as IBM SPSS Statistics, which would cost me $10,000 PER YEAR (no joke)! It's amazing statistical analysis software but there's an open source version called PSPP (haha) that does nearly all of what SPSS does, for free (apart from some statistical testing I think). Now that I'm no longer affiliated with a university and getting free or student-price software, I'm going the open source route wherever I can.

I agree. I use GIMP and, unless you're a professional, it has everything you need..and it's free.

I would look on amazon for Photoshop on a disk. You should beable to find Photoshop master collection cs5 on amazon. You may even beable to find 6 on a disk too.

I have the cs5 collection and am still learning all the cool ad ons like dreamweaver, indesign, illustrator, I really like the organization of photoshop and the bridge in cs5.
