I am a graphic designer and most of the week I work with Adobe Programmes that my company pays for. However, of course, I still have my own computer, where I OCCASIONALLY would like to use Adobe programmes for private use or non-profit projects. I can definitely not afford to pay 60 EUR for using these programmes about 3-4 hours tops a week! Why are there no reasonable prices for occasional users? I am really disappointed in how Adobe has evolved in this aspect. I do love your products and AM willing to pay for good software but there has to be some proportion! Please, tell me, you also thought about that?
I will cancel my subscription now, because I have no other choice. 😞😞😞
Happy for any answer offering me some kind of solution, thank you.
if you're an episodic user, adobe has one month plans. that can be started when the need arises and end in one month (though you need to cancel otherwise the plan automatically renews for the next month).
I don't know what you expect. The Photography and the All Apps Plans are deeply discounted bundles of software & services for one very low price. If you do the math, you're paying about $1/month per app. Compared to AutoCad and Maya design software that each cost $1,700/yr, Creative Cloud pricing is a bargain! And eligible Students & Teachers enjoy an additional 60% discount from Adobe. It doesn't get any better than that.
Having the right tools for your trade is the cost of doing business. Your employer knows that. If you want to do freelance work in your spare time, that's great but you must charge enough to cover your business expenses and then some. That's how the system works. 😁
