Curious to know if everyone has switched to CC or are you still using a CS version?
If you've switched do you like the subscription service?
Do you think it's value for money?
Do you use all the other little apps or just stick with the main 3 (PS, illustrator, Indesign) for the bulk of your work?
Switched to CC a while back, at home and at work. Full package at work, and just paying monthly for Photoshop at home.
At work I'm on a PC, latest version of Photoshop (CC 2015) is too buggy to use. At home on a mac its better. Artboards sound great, but in practice they're impossible to work with (on PC at least). I stick to CC 2014 which is more stable and I find it hard to go back to CS as its had a few small but major improvements for UI work which is what I'm focused on.
At home, i dont like the subscription service and for the amount of time i use it, its not worth the money.
I dont use illustrator or indesign enough to pay for the subscription service at home so i stick with CS and that's fine until i get a file that's incompatible - which is becoming more frequent.
Eventually i think ill move to Sketch at home for UI work, and revert back to Photoshop CS for any image manipulation work i need to integrate.
The problem with CC is that it works for a studio, not for casual users. No user is going to pay $50 a month for casual access to two or three adobe products.
Adobe would bring our a new CS version every 2-3 years, and a studio would pay those costs, so it works out the same price as before really. Maybe even a bit cheaper considering you have to do a full upgrade every 4 or 5 versions.
But it really hurts small operators who wouldn't need to upgrade to the latest and greatest.
I'm fortunate enough to work in a studio that pays CC for me - which I can also use personally. I liked CC as a Freelancer, because it let me properly legalise my copy of Adobe without getting small mortgage.
Adobe really need to do something about it. Have a corporate plan and a personal plan. Perhaps the personal plan is limited to 4 apps installed at a time or something to make it worth while.
