I found this discussion clicking link in other topic. Problem I find in these posts is not mine as I'm not aged yet, but I may guess why there is discount for students and teachers while not for disabled and senior customers. Shortly saying, it's all about money.Investing in students who don't earn much yet, makes they're going to learn Adobe products instead of looking alternatives, so when they are finally on their own they're going to use them still and pay more money for being alredy familiar with instead of getting to know something different from basis again.It is similary with teachers. If there are Adobe products in schools then young people are going to buy same programs they need to practise class exercises on. Additionally it's more likely they will continue their work with Adobe stuff than spending money for some other kind of programs that do the same.What disabled persons and seniors can give back? Someone disabled, but with abiility to work is like regular customer so may afford to pay like all others, but those who do it for their personal use while want discount will not increase Adobe income in future. Seniors will die in 5 - 15 years, so again their lives are not important for company which point is to earn money, or at least get something back in long-term future period letting earlier some gorups of users - like students and teachers - pay less.
I would like to add a voice here as a disabled pensioner, adobe should consider giving all pensioners whether age, disability, veteran etc the same discounts as students get or better. they are missing out on a massive influential audience of people that could teach and share and spread the love if they were not priced out of using the adobe products .
I owned your products for almost a decade I see ads for cracked software but am loyal to your company.i download a free month trial to Dreamweaver and after it ended none of my old software worked.Do you offers senior or disability discount? I receive less than $500 per month and $39 is Alot of us are not allowed to take student discount as COVID had shut down auditing of classes I see others have asked please respond Loyal customer
I also am fully disabled. Before my aneurysm I owned a botique art gallery/framing/photography editing company. I purchased Photoshop CS6 for over 1200 dollars. Now that I would like to continue to pursue my photography I find that I:
1. Cannot access my old CS6 even though I have the seriel number minus the last 4 numbers.
2. Support will not help me because those last 4 numbers are redacted from the program files for "security"
3. Its been years so I don't have that business email anymore.
I just want to be able to exercise my creative juices. I am not even capable of leaving my apartment on my own.
In response to a disabled person being the same as a regular customer... My disability bearly covers my most basic expenses, not to mention those that I simply wish to have to stimulate my creative juices.
I do not plan to make money off of the creative cloud, it would affect my disability anyway. Also I am not really capable of any type of schedule.
I really think that a senior and disabled discount is justified Adobe... get on board and help those of us that aren't going to stoop to stealing or key cracking.... We do it because we respect your company and product. So please help us out also. It doesn't actually cost you anything but is a great example to other companies and genuine good will.
Sadly, so true. Just like during the pandemic, seniors and the disabled are considered "disposible". And still are. The saddest thing is that Photoshop and AI are the two most horrid graphics programs with which I have had to work. So many others were so much more intuitive and able. But at seems that now an entire new generation is going to have to work with these cumbersome beasts.
