Why are they taking so long to covert all their software offerings to APPLE ARM.
They should have been one of the firsts.

No thanks Adobe. I moved from the Creative Cloud to Davinci Resolve and Affinity products. I paid less for them than I would pay in ONE YEAR to Adobe. Their prices are just outrageous. At this point on my bill will be £0 for my new products (that are just as good if not better).

Adobe just can’t lose. They rob you when you’re with them and rob when you dare to look elsewhere. I genuinely don’t know why ANYBODY uses them in this day and age. So many other decent software choices out there, many of which are better.

I use Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign fairly regularly and am tired of paying $50+ each month. What are good replacements for these apps? I don't mind a subscription model if need be, but Adobe's price is just too high.

“Every” is a bit of an exaggeration. Used to be that way. I think a lot of people, including companies, are or will start waking up to the fact that Adobe will cost thrm a lot more over the years than buying software outright.
maybe a bit, but nonetheless it's a lot more that governments that support adobe.

It’s not a good long term strategy to have your customers hate you. It can only hasten your fall.
It’s the power of marketing and hearsay. Lots of people doing know theirs a viable alternative. I love Davinci Resolve Studio instead of Premiere Pro and it cost new £260 ONCE. I also use Affinity Photo and again love it and that only cost me £24 ONCE. Resolve is much better than Premiere and Affinity Photo I would say is as good.

Yeah I agree but companies don’t like change. That’s what Adobe plays on and can charge what they want. Hopefully that will change. I detest subscriptions and have none in my life. anything that changes to a subscription for me, I would rather ditch and move.

I occasionally need Photoshop (for client validations) - so the way I do it - is to purchase only "boxed" PS+LR subscriptions. So prepaid only BOX - and then I activate it when I need it.

If one is careful - one can pickup a PS+LR prepaid 12 month subscription for 30-50% discount on special dates (Like Black Friday)

The biggest issue now is Adobe fills your hard drive with so much crap you cannot say "no thank you" too. (about 6 different programs running constantly in the background)

So next "fight the adobe" plan is to have an air gapped PC/Mac - just for Adobe Crap and similar craptastic software.
