ADOBE has become EVILPhotoshop = Affinity PhotoIllustrator = Affinity DesignerAfter Effects = Resolve/Fusionor nah?
im still using cs4
>>366465Careful anon, Adobe will sue you because using old versions is illegal.
I use CS6 adobe stuff but Ive been trying to move to free shit like OpenToonz and KdenLive for my stuff. They're not perfect but surpprisingly better to work with than CC shit.
Adobe can be replaced, but likely won't unless there's some massive rise in demand for open source alternatives.They've got the vast majority of the design industry dependant on their product, to the point where using the competition's software is seen as unprofesional and a liability. Open source alternatives can get (and arguably have gotten) just as good if not better than Adobe's buggy, bloated, and ridiculously expensive payware, but are doomed to be burried by the sheer amount of promotion that Adobe can afford.
>>366465My friend.I'm still on CS6.>>366468Will you donate for lawyer?
>>366458for personal projects, of coursebut if you want to work in the industry, even freelancing for studios, fuck noyou gotta dick ride adobe and the leftist in this field
>>366458I wish. At least I can still make new trial codes.
I don't do much /gd/ so I've been using Paint.NET with a gazillion plugins.
>>366566I think Adobe's going to be upset.
Thirty bongland loisence notes is a fine price to pay for thousands of quid a month in work.It's like the smallest overhead in any business.But if you're a hobbyist, fuck it use whatever you want
20 years in the field and Adobe is easily the worst aspect of my career.I would pay good money to see them crumble.
Have any of you actually found a suitable replacement for InDesign? It's the most important program for me but it loads really horribly if you're not using a newer computer
>>366468This was taken way out of context for clickbait headlines, that blogpost from Adobe literally said, you risk being sued by third parties, not them. It's just corporate speak to cover their ass.
>>366697No, it’s corporate speak to save money because adobe fucked up big time by breaking licensing agreement with Dolby. Dolby isn’t going after the end user, they are going after adobe and making adobe pay them for all of the user that still use the software.The letter is adobe using fear tactics on their own customers to save them money.
