I've been wanting to get the Suite, but the pricetag has been too much to choke down. However, this doesn't seem a better option for someone like me who makes very few graphics/month. Erg.

I feel for the people who have spent a ton on purchasing the software because as operating systems keep upgrading, at some point their Suite will not function anymore and they will be forced to switch to this.

What Photoshop's Move to the Cloud Actually Means for You

Adobe Photoshop, along with all other Creative Suite applications, just made a move to the cloud. Adobe decided to discontinue software you can actually buy so they can force you to rent the applications for a monthly fee. This change comes with a number of problems but also some advantages. Here's what the change means to you.
    You Own Nothing, and Creative Cloud May Not Save You Money
    You Can't Pay As You Go
    Creative Cloud Provides Actual Desktop Applications, Not Webapps
    Adobe Creative Cloud's Copy Protection Didn't Get Worse
    Updates Come Sooner (But You Can Skip Them)
    When You Should Sign Up Depends on Your Situation

All in all, we do not like Adobe's decision to completely discard software you can purchase. While renting Creative Cloud provides a more affordable path for some people, and we're glad it exists, we find the lack of choice and annual commitment extremely frustrating and not in the interest of the consumer. While we doubt Adobe will return to selling software, we hope to see them at least treat their customers with a little more respect and remove the year-long requirement without an adding cost.

My dad always warned me about those products that keep on billing every month. Usually it is better to buy it once and be done but the upgrades...didn't those used to be free?

I have been using GIMP for the last couple of years. A bit clunky compared to Photoshop, but can't beat the price.
