GIMP 2.8

This free image editor is no longer a crippled alternative to Photoshop

has a reputation for being hard to use and lacking many of Photoshop’s features. The reality has changed dramatically over the last couple years. GIMP now has a very competent user interface, as well as an extensive and powerful set of features. Its openly extensible nature means that in some areas, like running well-known image processing algorithms on your photos, it actually outshines Adobe Photoshop.

Adobe’s Move to the Cloud Incites Anger Tuesday, May 14 2013 

By Jessica Fee

In this week’s Top Comments, we’ve focused in on the controversial discussion over Adobe’s recent subscription pricing announcement. Does the new subscription-based model benefit freelancers, hobbyists, or professionals? When we first posted the story on our Facebook page, the general reaction to the news was extremely negative. Eventually, however, those who have been using the Creative Cloud Suite began to speak up and explained that the benefits actually outweigh the negatives. Adobe offers a tiered payment plan, and with the cloud, you automatically receive any updates as soon as they’re released. Do you think the new subscription model is an improvement, or a regression, for Adobe’s Creative Suite?

Adobe Goes All-In on Subscription Pricing Model Tuesday, May 7 2013

Adobe’s flagship product, Creative Suite, has new name and a host of new and updated features now that it’s evolved into Adobe Creative Cloud. But the biggest change in the software is how Adobe will be selling it: It’s going to be subscription only. That means that users won’t be able to buy Photoshop CC or other apps individually from Adobe for a flat rate (known in the industry as perpetual licensing). Instead, users can pay a monthly subscription to access all of Adobe’s products.

Adobe introduced its Creative Cloud subscription service last year with Creative Suite 6. Users could pay $29.99 to access one Adobe product each month or $49.99 to access the entire Creative Suite (the equivalent of the CS6 Master Collection). The program has been a success, with more than 500,000 premium members signing up for Creative Cloud in the first nine months of availability, in addition to the 2 million free Creative Cloud members.
