Hitler’s Reaction to Adobe’s New Creative Cloud Model

Adobe has made several announcements over the past few days. We’ve seen a new version of Photoshop, Creative Cloud bundles geared towards photographers, and even a go at hardware with the “Mighty” Pen and “Napoleon” Ruler. But of the unveilings, none was as controversial as the announcement that we would be saying goodbye to the Creative Suite line — from now on, it’s going to be Creative Cloud or nothing.

This has led to many a serious reaction and discussion online about the benefits and pitfalls of the new model. But of course, this is the Internet. What’s a serious discussion if it’s not balanced out by a good old fashioned meme? And so, YouTube’s Evil Edison has captioned Hitler’s fictional reaction to the announcement. Be forewarned: it is quite vulgar at times. Read more…

Adobe Thinking About a Creative Cloud Bundle Geared Toward Photographers

photoshopcc

Adobe caused quite an outcry from the photography community yesterday after announcing that its future software offerings will only be available through subscription plans to its Creative Cloud service. The main gripe was that the $50/month cost for all the programs in the CC suite–or $20/month for just Photoshop–didn’t make financial sense for independent photographers and smaller photo studios.

Well, the sound of grumbling has reached decision makers over in the San Jose-based company. In a post published on the Photoshop.com blog yesterday, the company revealed that it’s thinking about introducing special Creative Cloud packages geared specifically at photographers.

In addition to the Photoshop CC and Camera RAW announcements, the Adobe XD team also debuted something entirely different at the MAX conference: the company’s first shot at hardware.

A Sneak Peek of the Magical New Shake Reduction Tool Coming to Photoshop

The Internet let out a collective gasp back in October 2011 when Adobe gave an advanced preview of a crazy new image deblurring feature it has been working on. The feature can take a photo that’s blurry due to camera shake, calculate the movements that caused the blur, and “reverse it” to create a sharper photo.

It looks like the feature isn’t too far off now. Today Adobe released the above video that offers a sneak peek at what the tool actually looks like inside an upcoming version of Photoshop. Just as with the demo from two years ago, this video will drop many jaws.

Adobe Defends Its Ridiculous Australian Pricing Before Parliament

About a month ago, the fact that Australian customers pay so much more for Adobe CS6 that it’s actually cheaper to fly to the US and get it went viral on the internet. At that point, Adobe had already been summoned in front of Parliament to explain the “price gouging,” and had even dropped their monthly Creative Cloud subscriptions to reasonable rates in response.

Now, Adobe — alongside Apple and Microsoft — have finally been forced to keep that appointment. And during the meeting, each of the three companies gave the Australian Parliamentary Committee a few reasons as to why exactly Australian customers have to pay so much more for some of their products.

Adobe is pushing hard towards cloud services and digital distribution. Its Creative Cloud software subscription service appears to be on a tear, with hundreds of thousands of subscribers paying monthly fees for always-updated software that traditionally came in boxes that carry hefty price tags.

Earlier this year, Adobe acquired portfolio service Behance in order to make the Creative Cloud more social, and now the company is making another bold move as it heads more and more toward the cloud: it will soon stop selling boxed copies of its Creative Suite software altogether.
