What’s the opinion around here about Adobe’s decision to go all subscription? There’s a lot of excitement from small devs like Bohemian Coding (Sketch), Pixelmator etc. about scooping up the masses who they anticipate will be jumping off the Mothership.

I signed up last year for the subscription, but I have been mostly unhappy with the latest versions of Photoshop or Illustrator. I will have to seriously reconsider this brave new world when my deep-discount price expires. I do so little DTP stuff any more that I may be able to get along without the latest versions of CS (now CC) or just use one of these up-and-comers instead. I own CS 5.5 on disk. That’s 64-bit, I think, so it should have some legs even through newer versions of Mac OS (and hardware to go with).

I could probably get along without Photoshop for much of what I do web-wise. I already do most of my retouching in Aperture. That has a seriously amazing clone/repair tool, and it’s completely non-destructive, unlike PS. No outlining/silhouetting available there, but I could do that in Acorn.

I’m actually pretty excited for these small devs and I hope they can indeed capitalize on it. I think the tide shifted significantly in the Little Guy’s favor when Fireworks dev stalled which put both Sketch and Pixelmator in a great position. Those two devs especially are in a near “perfect storm” situation. I look forward to watching it unfold.

I do like the idea of not using Adobe. The biggest hassle for me with apps like iStudio, Sketch etc. is they do not have spot or Pantone color capabilities. I know a lot of work these days are all CMYK but we still do the occasional spot color work. Even iWork Pages is not bad for basic page layouts like a quick brochure of flyer.
