As the owner of a small multimedia enterprise I have a different view. Adobe products like Photoshop and Premiere have opened doors for me & I make money using that software. The suite I would buy is $2500, and these things seem to need replacing or upgrading about every two years. I routinely use In-design, PS, Premiere, Soundboard and After Effects & Encore. I do magazine ads, jewelry photography, EPK's, short films and instructional videos.

$2500 divided by 24 months... $104 a month. Cost of doing biz. $50 a month with upgrades, plus I do qualify for the $30 rate. Count me in. Sure I wish it was less. I also wish my camera and lenses were less. Not gonna happen soon.

This is awesome. A lump-sum payment of over $2500 for software is steep for almost anyone; $50-75/month is tons more affordable, and gives artists just starting out the chance to establish a regular income stream without having to sink a fortune into software first.

re: #1 Daniel Ballard

My biggest problem with the subscription model is the fact that you can never stop paying or you lose access to your apps. Even though the initial cost of purchasing a software suite may be high, it is yours forever and you can choose from year to year whether you want to upgrade or not as new versions are released. Based on Adobe's old pricing model, if you upgrade every 2 years, you would pay about $600 per upgrade, which works out to about $25/month over a 24-month period. If you have a lean year, you can choose to skip an upgrade or two and save money without losing access to your apps. This is not an option with the subscription model.
