A maker of a range of products for photo editing and beyond, Adobe has long held a position of high regard in the digital media community for its ability to democratize the process of making media while maintaining an ease of use and entry level price point that is both consumer friendly and market competitive. Of course, when the company announced it was moving its popular suite of applications to the cloud in their Creative Cloud offering, longtime users of the physical software were not only wary of the move but apoplectic about it as well. After all, who knows what this would mean in terms of future costs. Who doesn’t like the one-and-done pricing structure that old software suites offered. Companies that rely on them for profits, that’s who. We all know someone who pirated their creative software and we all probably turned a blind eye back then.
