Hi, I'm a current design freelancer but it's far from being my main source of income: I work on ususally 2-3 project yearly for friends or start up companies. Although, I do mainly just do it for fun, I'm finding it harder and harder to justify spending 80.00$+ CAD a month to use only use Illustrator, Photoshop and occasionally Lightroom. I love working on my own projects most of the time, but when it's costing so much out of pocket, it doesn't seem sustainable and I'm on the verge of biting the bullet and canceling my remaining contract out of financial necessity. 

I think it's really unfortunate that there are many others in the same boat, or even just taking an interest in learning by themselves how to navigate creative programs in the CC Adobe selections, but are being charged monthly for essentially the same program, over and over despite the amount that it's being used. 

 

I've never commented before, but I stumbled accross multiple videos reccently of successul creatives switching to other programs and companies because their either free or you can purchase them to own, and urging others to do some research to avoid this monthly "randsom".

 

The only thing that's kept me with Adobe CC is the ability to move files accorss the platforms seemlessly and having essentially a privatised iCloud for projects, but it doesn't seem worth almost 1000.00$ CAD yearly for this one feature. 

I'm reaching out in hopes to spark an interest in users in the same boat, so we can potentially work with Adobe CC on finding a solution that meets all of our needs. 

As of Feb 14, 2020 the stocks (NASDAQ:ADBE) have been plummeting and I belive it's due to an increase in pirated programs and/or cheaper/free ones. 

I've loved using these programs for years, and really wish I could afford to continue, but it's not feasible anymore and I hope a change is coming soon.

Hi,
You mention Adobe's stock price, but this is more likely to be the impact of COVID-19 on the stock market than of pirated software.
