  1. Too bad there is no real professional competition. I am aware of a lot of software that may do things similar to Adobe’s software especially with photo editing but still not the same nor as professional.

    I am like most people that think this software is too expensive.

  2. Only Professional Studios and Freelancers need it, some others will buy it, but won’t really make use of it.
    Photomator for instance is one real nice substitute to Photoshop.
    And there are other substitutes to other Adobe apps, that are surely missing some of the Adobe features, but may serve the vast majority of the Adobe users perfectly !

    AND… it is not only the price but also the workflow within Adobe’s products, that makes more and more people looking for other applications.

    As we love the typical Apple workflow, we don’t want to work with the brutal complexity of Adobe anymore.

    Adding some simplicity while keeping the features is a very hard way for Adobe to go.
    Unless the workflow has to be changed in general and completely. But that is never going to happen…

  3. Unfortunately I need to have it at some point.. I’ll wait a month for the first round of updates.

    I wish Apple would just buy Adobe. That would be so excellent! Better software for a fraction of the price… Shit, even if it costs more but it’s better and updated frequently, it would be worth it.

    1. Agree, Dancamera. Apple, please buy Adobe and rid the world of expensive dinosaur pricing tiers for the good old progessionals club. Lower price points, ease of use, timely updates and tight integration with ALL Apple products — the masses will rejoice!

  4. “Master Collection”…WOW!!??

    “Production Premium”…HOHOHO!!!

    but no “GoldCollection”..??????
    nothing with “gold” ??? how can it be ??

  5. You people aren’t very good at math, are you? Do you even know what all comes in the Master Suite? There are four suites to choose from and they get cheaper, by the way. You obviously haven’t looked at the creative cloud pricing, either.

    And no… Apple should not buy Adobe just to kill it. Some of us really need these products because Apple killed off their versions of it.

    1. If apple was to purchase Adobe, they would recreate a better piece of software from what Adobe currently offers. Dare I say that Adobe has been pedaling their wares like Microsoft lately. Mundane updates for high prices. NO real advances. I’d just like it to be faster and more stable. I use Photoshop every day, all day. I don’t want it to go away, I just want it to get better!

    2. Kill it? No one said that as far as I can tell. How about the world’s most progressive tech company making it less expensive along with timely improvements. Hmmm? Agree again, Dancamera. Incremental high priced updates with LITTLE VALUE to end users so Adobe execs can buy another yacht.

    3. I agree Final Cut Pro was such a great program, now I am looking at Premier because the new interface on FCP is retarded. Plus, Apple would just add gestures to all the Adobe Apps if they bought them out.
