*Almost* perfect with a few exceptions

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Pros:

I’ve been a user of all of Adobe’s programs for 10+ years. If you are a creative type, anything you need to bring your vision to life is within one of their programs. Photoshop allows for advance photo manipulation, Lightroom is great for color correction, and Premier Pro is great for videographers.

Cons:

The price. If you are a hobbyist, the price can become a little steep at $59.99/mo.

Adobe Is My Daily Driver

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: I have been using Adobe tools for over 25 years and generally they have become better. I have recommended a variety of the Adobe tools to others depending on their needs and budget.

Pros:

The cross-functionality between applications is critical and generally works very well. For example, I enjoy being able to create pieces in Lightroom, Photoshop, and Illustrator and compile them in InDesign. I was just using the tools today to build a variety of print and digital pieces.

Cons:

There are some silly quirks with the programs such as in Photoshop you can't paste the file path when opening or saving a file (they use an old file structure format), or in InDesign you can't export as an SVG. There are work arounds, so the software is still useable as a daily driver.

Dated Pricing & Product

1.0 last week New

Comments: Adobe was a staple for my job at one point but as newer, cheaper, and better services have emerged I have canceled my adobe subscription for good. I can no longer justify using their applications when there are so many others that are better substitutes at a fraction of the cost or even free.

Pros:

The wide variety of products offered can be used in a varity of ways

Cons:

The cost is just insane. Why not offer a 1 time payment for your product? Having to spend thousands of dollars in a few years of using the service is insane. This is why people are switching including myself!

Love My Adobe Creative Cloud

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: I love Adobe Creative Cloud. It has helped me to elevate my graphic design work to a new level, and I find new tricks and helpers almost every day to make my job easier.

Pros:

Seemless integration between programs. I primarily use inDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator and I love them all. I use all three of these products, plus Acrobat, on a daily basis.

Cons:

I have no issues with Adobe Creative Cloud.

Adobe Creative Cloud I the only way

5.0 9 months ago

Comments: I use this every day... all day. I do not see myself without it. I used to have 3 or 4 graphic element subscriptions but have since dropped them all after using the Creative Cloud. Every aspect of my business has benefitted from the Creative Cloud and it seems to get better every single day. We take time, as a team, to use their tutorials and continue to learn every single day.

Pros:

I like how they have everything bundled in an easy to use, and the fluidity between users and teams. It helps us stay organized and allows us to work together seemlessly.

Cons:

Some apps do have a steep learning curve and can look scary at first. To battle this, they have tons of video tutorials to use and learn along and from.
