Adobe Products Goes Subscription Based

Hello all,

In a world where the “cloud” is all the rage and subscriptions mean an almost unlimited pipeline of cash for companies (I am looking at your NetFlix) there is still a need to download and install software. But how do you adapt something like Adobe After Effects to a cloud based model when the files could be hundreds of gigs to upload/download and that doesn’t include the processing power.

Well, for now at least, you can’t. And that is where Adobe has latched onto the idea that people would want to rent their products. It is great idea for the hobbyist or the small business person who only needs the product for a couple of months in the year. The plans are really reasonably priced and the model seems like it should work very well. Have a look and tell me what you think.

Until next time,
TechStop (aka Josh Wood)
