https://www.diyphotography.net/using-older-adobe-cc-apps-could-get-you-sued-adobe-warns/>A few days ago, Adobe discontinued older versions of some Creative Cloud apps. The company is now sending emails to its customers warning them of potential legal actions. That is, if you continue using these apps – you risk getting sued for infringement by third parties.WEW>still using torrented Adobe products and still don't give a shit
This has always been the case, it's only clickbait title worthy now because they're sending mail first.No reason for creative individuals outside of a company to be using Adobe in 2019 anyway, the only reason they made it so big was because there was no realistic competitor to Photoshop or Lightroom for 15 years
This is why I will never use Adobe products.Among 101 other reasons.
So what else do you guys use for lightroom??? Photoshop etc>>3479998>>3480012
>>3479998>This has always been the case,No it hasn't>>3479994>you may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third partiesThe third party, apparently, is Dolby Labs with whom they failed to resolve a dispute over Adobes use of their softwareI think it mainly affects video and animation programs but Adobe will use it to bully everyone else into upgrading as well
>>3479994i bought lightroom 6 outright and never upgraded. no problems so far.
>>3480022>i bought lightroom 6 outright and never upgraded. no problems so far.does that version have dehaze?
>>3479994Remove/delete cunt customer spyware. Use pirated shit, change exif so it's mentioning some Photoshop version that was sold on flopies, and there's nothing they can do about it.
>2019>not using GIMP
>>3479994Heheh nice try. Would like to see them pull exif from instashit and bookface
>>3480024yes, but i don't use it, so can't tell you how well it works.
>>3480036You should, it's pretty awesome. At least it has been for me because one of my older lenses started fogging and dehaze takes care of that perfectly.
Adobe are some of the biggest fucking crooks in the software industry as far as I'm concerned. They should be sued for monopolizing and price gouging.
>>3479994what?I have legal ownership over my adobe CS5 software>CCoh hahahaha, I keep forgetting that you're no longer able to buy software and have to rent it as a "service" instead.who the fuck though this shit was a good idea?
>>3480196Executives and shareholders Adobe is a sinking ship, if i ever move on from darktable it certainly wont be to adobe >>3480025>Remove/delete cunt customer spywareThis is the worst part I tried lightroom last year when I got my camera and even after uninstalling it I was left with 4 separate adobe DRM services still running on my pc.I literally had to hunt them down and manually delete all of them
what are the security implications of using the older versions? should be fine if you don't need need auto publish to flikr and such right?
>>3479994Is it fine if we export and tick the box to remove/hide exif etc?
>>3479994There will come a time Adobe will charge you 99 cents per Save or Export.
>>3480192this. They are so fucking disgusting, acively sabotaging camera companies who don't want to surrender to Adobe's proprietary color shitFuck Adobe in the ass. I'm so glad I cancelled my subscription and bought Capture One and Affinity Photo instead. There's no background processes, no internet requirement to activate (for Affinity Photo at least, haven't tested offline activation with Capture One). There's no always-running DRM shit, no 15 background processes. You launch the program and when you are done, you close it and the process in task manager closes aswell.Capture One has much better RAW rendering aswell. Fuck Adobe for being lazy pieces of shit. They want monopoly but they don't take care of their programs who are broken as shit and so fucking slow and inefficient.
darktable for RAW processingGIMP for editsall you need
>>3480372You're probably safe if you're using pirated shit anyway. It's not that they've any means of determining on what comp you're working (yet). They're targetting their own paid subscribers with this one. CC ap detects what version you're running and they send you an email, if you're a naughty gal by running anything what they think you shouldn't be.
>>3480196Windows is rumored to be going the same route.
>>3480457I just block and firewall anything adobe related when using.
>>3479994What a bunch of greedy cuntsI hope they go bankrupt.
>>3480605They are just sending out emails to warn you that a 3rd party is pissed and may sue you. Adobe wouldn't be the one suing you. They just want you to upgrade.
>>3480018DxO is pretty great, I've seen some results and they were better than lightroom's.
>>3480612dxo is not cheap. They're doing the old Adobe way by releasing new version every year, and demanding money for it.
>>3480646you can torrent it>>3480612I tried it out recently, what's up with the super minimal controls?
Yes. I totally care about Adobe thinks I should do, because we have no other options Hey, I'm student at the University of Texas, doing a study about online communities. Could some of you do me a favor and take this quick surveys (its like 5 min). Thanks!https://utexas.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bmgBH07Xqjxig1D?SRC=4C&ID=CP
They are doing everything they can to threaten us into the 20 dollar subscription.
>>3480608>They just want you to upgradeA forced oneNo thanks
>>3480608>to warn you that a 3rd party is pissed and may sue youThis alone suggests they have communicated with 3rd party to ask them to sue you.Rest assured Adobe would love to sue you, if they could.
>>3480672The same 3rd party sued Adobe, so probably not. lol That is the reason Adobe had to fix their shit, now all the old versions are breaking some retard copyright law or whatever.
>>3480603That's not a rumor, it already is for Enterprise.
>>3480603The last few updates (for Pro anyway) explicitly stated this during install.
I had a cloud subscription when doing gig work..when trying to cancel it (as I moved to C1) their "reps" would dodge the request..using many pre written soundbites like "you may need it in the future " etc. Many calls with them saying that they will go ahead and cancel and it not happening. I eventually sent them a formal email stating I have recorded all conversations and will now proceed with legal action. 2 hours later they cancelled. Dodgy fucking company...took nearly 2 weeks of constant calling to get off the subscription ...never again.
>>3480608so they did sell stolen software! how is that a problem of the userbase?
>>3481267>how is that a problem of the userbase?Because fuck the userbase
So how do you pirate lightroom now? Reinstalled lightroom a day ago, did the amtemu solution and unless I turned fucking retarded, it doesn't seem to work anymore.
>>3481468Old news. Been patched since new year. There are new methods.
>>3481260You can cancel it from your PC idiot.
>>3480192Agreed. They once cared about their customer base years ago. The software was always $$$ but now they want Everyone to sub to their product by eliminating stuff that you bought that you could use forever on that older gear which works fine for some. Doubt Adobe even cares any more. It's all about the $$$.
I saw this coming, and as much as I don't like Adobe, I wanted a copy of lightroom since I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I bought Lightroom 6 perpetual license. Prior to this I just used GIMP.My verdict? Lightroom is pretty good but I'll still be continuing to use open source alternatives for future proofing.[EXIF data available.

>>3481107That sounds like it would make a lot of people jump ship to Mac OS and Linux
>>3480192> biggest fucking crooks in the software industry>price gougingNo, that would be Oracle.>>3481102Its been that way since pretty much forever (long before Win10) with their Software Assurance program which will happen in any large company.
