I know I might be the few, but from the very beginning I started using Aperture since 1.0. Never really had to rely on photoshop at all. It's not as powerful in every aspects as LR5. But the quick preview simply kills everything when going through tons of raw files. $89 for a powerful software like this?! What a bargain.
Lets just hope Apple doesn't abandon it...

I still jumped to creative cloud though, student pricing 19.99 per month for a year. Not bad. Well then it will start sucking when I graduate. :(

I need the premier pro for video editing, and every now and then gotta do something that only Photoshop can but Aperture cant (very few instances).

->> I don't know. It's not enough info in this article for me to believe this to be true. I've been a Creative Cloud member since it started and yes it was very convenient while it was $29 bucks, but the $49 a month is crazy. So far I've only used Illustrator and InDesign CC and LOVE the new features especially the Touch Type Tool in Illustrator.

I did see a very blurry image today on their Facebook Page touched up in the Camera Shake filter that looked very cool, which will now help the Soccer Mom's around the world make better pictures. I guess no more need to chimp and delete soft images. LOL!! I HATE THAT FILTER and I haven't even tried it yet.

Maybe not ... but Soccer Mom's doctor/lawyer/dentist/politician husbands would pay. ;-)

Chuck ... I don't think it has been documented as to "how" CC was cracked ... but their are those folks in this world who do this sort of stuff purely for the challenge alone ... once you have the application code on your computer, the rest is child's play for these folks ...

->> I don't see why all the angst? So, the latest and greatest version of Photoshop is cloud based. Don't buy it! What does it offer that CS6 can't do? What is the upside of the upgrade?

We have a society that MUST have the latest and greatest version of everything. People stupidly stand in line for days to buy a phone! And now there are people who will abandon their older versions of Adobe products for no other reason than to buy an upgrade.

We as consumers have a choice, and it isn't hacking the software or caving into the flawed business model that Adobe is now offering. Just don't buy it and stay with what you have. It got you this far and I honestly believe that the upgrade will not provide you one bit more of a competitive edge.

And while I'm on a rant, why not do it old school and just shoot the damn photo correctly. Don't use Photoshop as the crutch it has become with so many photogs (and I'm not talking about you... I'm talking about the other guy!) Stop stripping in a new sky. Wait for the light to be what you want then take the photo. Slow down and create the image, not make it up after the fact.

->> David, you don't really have a choice if the camera manufacturer writes a RAW file an older version of Photoshop won't open. My workflow has to go through Photoshop because it's the only program that does CMYK conversions, at least to my knowledge...

->> Chris,

If you are a Canon user, you have a choice. You can edit your photos in DPP. You can convert RAW files to CMYK after editing them. The only thing missing with DPP is the ability to dodge and burn. If you do as Mr. Hungate suggest and get it right during the exposure, you won't miss the D&B tool either.

->> I've never shot RAW. None of the papers I've worked for had up to date Photoshop (or anything else) that would convert the files. They always seemed to be a version or two behind, so it's been jpg. For newspaper production, I find the files to be adequate.

->> Jeff ... that's fine if all you are shooting for is newsprint ... I shot jpeg for many years before I was even aware that RAW was an option ... in fact the original Nikon D1 did not offer RAW at all ... it did offer a TIFF option, but not RAW ... for those of us that have to serve clients, other than newsprint ... jpeg may not be the best option ... even though we could get it right shooting jpeg if we must ...

->> Butch, when a newspaper editor asks why you need a tripod and cable release to shoot good fireworks photos, you know it's an uphill battle explaining why you need to shoot RAW. At small newspapers, the management simple doesn't give two s--- about how it's shot. Can it be reproduced in the newspaper - and - can anyone in the office view it without dealing with conversion issues? With jpg, the answer is yes. If RAW works for somebody else, I say go for it.
