Update: My Thoughts on Adobe Creative Cloud

Well, the backlash against the big dark Creative Cloud looming over us creatives’ heads has been amazing to say the least. Here’s what I’ve been seeing:



And a really entertaining video expressing the sentiments of so many. Watch at your own risk — there’s strong (subtitled) language.

You may have read my first post about Creative Cloud, and I was generally positive about it. But, the more I think about it, the more I’m swinging the other way. What really bothers me isn’t the monthly subscription (as long as it stays where it is) — it’s the … Read the rest
