Fresco seemed fantastic until I learned that you can't save files locally

Adobe Fresco has a lot of really great features, but the inability to save files locally is a complete deal breaker.

 

I don't even have to pay for it individually, as it comes included with my Adobe Cloud subscription. And I still won't use it, even for free, if I can't save files locally.

 

If Adobe made their cloud service so good and useful that people really demanded it, that's one thing. Making it so there's no choice but to use it makes me resent it and want to avoid it.

There are a number of comments regarding this in the Fresco UserVoice pages. Perhaps add your views into there as well.

If you're referring to the auto save of a work in progress, you can have it save locally if you aren't connected to the net. It will go to the cloud next time you are connected though.
If you're referring to exporting a finished file you can definitely save locally.
On the iPad you can export to files, on the desktop you can export to where ever you like.

Thanks for responding.

 

Sorry if I was unclear, but the features you're talking about are different from what I'm looking for.

 

The local save function for works in process places the file in some obscure temporary directory that is not determined by the user. The export function is for outputting in uneditable file formats such as JPG or PNG. I want to be able to save works in progress on a local directory of my choosing.

 

More importantly, I do not want any of my data saved to Adobe's cloud. I already have Dropbox, Sync.com, and Google, I do not need another online service. It just complicates my workflow by having my files spread out over multiple locations. I also have concerns about security and privacy with Adobe, I do not trust them with my private data.

 

Lastly, I do not want to be forced into using a service I do not need. In the case of Adobe Xd, there are cloud functions that benefit me, so I use it. In the case of Fresco, it is just forcing me to do something I would not otherwise volunteer to do on my own. I can save my Photoshop and Illustrator files locally, there is no reason Fresco should be different.

 

Unless Fresco drops their requirement that all works in progress will be saved to their cloud, I will not be using it.
