They are just at the forefront of software development and retail, this is the future that is all...

Change always provokes negative comments, and unless you are into pirated software (ahem :blush: ) this should be an improvement.

I agree, but if it leads to the demise of Shotophop, it's a suicidal business decision I can only welcome.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

It would have to be one hell of a clanger to kill off Photoshop...

Stranger things have happened though. Look at Kodak. A name synonymous with photography, they lost the plot, but through not keeping up rather than trying to push forward too quickly.

It would be odd if we continued to talk about 'Photoshopping' images long after Photoshop's demise.

You can still get the legacy version of Photoshop (cs2) for free at http://www.techspot....toshop-cs2.html   The serial numbers are in the description on that page

Image/video editing is certainly getting much more sophisticated, largely driven by the advanced home computing technologies(processor, memory, video card)

Programming such high-level software to utilize the newer technologies takes a lot of time and a lot of people.

I don't know where I was going with this, so I guess I'll leave it at that for now.

The program is still locally run. Microsoft office 365 involves cloud stored software and 5 pc licenses for $99 for a year. A lot fairer system than Adobes. Implementing this renting system will only involve more people.

It is more than adequate for most professional uses too. Many of the 3d source Photoshop plug ins (NoiseNinja, Perfect Resize... etc) can also be run on the Gimp. And if you use the Gimp under Linux/Unix it beats Photoshop under Windows any day hands down (Does not reach the Mac performance though).

Anyone that brings me art from software like that, I usually have to re-do because it's never as good as it can be. That means they end up paying me.

Doubt you ever had to redo anything I did... not even the stuff I make in Paint (usually known as my 5 minute jobs).

It all depends on what it is and what you're going to do with it.

Right. No professionals I know use GIMP. Or Inkscape.
