I think the bottom line they still seem to be missing.

 There are a LOT of people out there that do not want to RENT software, they'd rather purchase it and use it as long as they want, even un-attached to the internet.

Totally agree, I do not ever want a subscription model no matter how little the cost in the beginning. (Because it will get more expensive once they've got everybody hooked) I want to buy the software and then use it for as long as I want.
I have CS6 now and unless there will be a non-cloud version coming out that will be my last PS version.

I have it and, apart from under the hood changes (it's definitely snappier), there really isn't much difference.


Shake Reduction filter? Hasn't amazed me so far.


The rest? nothing special to report.




The UI is identical to CS6.






Basically, the reason they don't want to sell this in a box for a lump sum, is that there really isn't enough there to justify it.


It's CS6 with a boost and a couple of new filters.




Whoopee…




Buy CS6 and live happily ever after.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

No, I figure if I can't make my images better with what I have now, then I need to become more focused on becoming a better photographer rather than a better PP'er. 

I think there is a lot of wisdom in your words.  It is supposed to be about photography. 
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

I think that is a bit open to debate.  Is a photographer synonymous with "camera operator" or is it the ability to create a final image?   ???

Personally I kinda suck as a camera operator, but think I do a decent job of ending up with good photographs because I can see the end product and ultimately get there, even if I struggle to do it "in camera".  And yes, I'm talking about stuff that could have been done in a darkroom, so the "that's not photography, that's graphic arts" argument doesn't really apply.

My feelings exactly.  Unless you absolutely need the latest version, I see no reason why CS6 licences should subscribe to CC.  For me it would basically feel like paying a monthly subscription for software you already have.

I just made my objections known with the AdobeResearch@evansresearchonline.com survey. So Adobe might care. I've been using Topaz with their new FXlab. The new release of Topaz Clarity is a great piece of software.

Sourceforge has focusing algorithm. Anyone using it?

The BBC has an interesting article. Take a look at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-23714699. Will look at some of those softwares later today. I was also pleased to see Canon cameras and lenses in the pictures ther :)
