» So which one’s the best value? Let’s do some quick math — if you’ve never purchased the Adobe Creative Suite before, you supposedly have to pay full price. Most people don’t need every single app, but let’s say you’re naïve and you think you do. At $2,599, that’s not particularly cheap, but $50 a month for the same thing doesn’t seem so bad, right? Well, Adobe comes out with a new Creative Suite every year or two. In two years, you’re paying $1,200 for the same apps that cost twice as much in full. But what, you say the upgrade on the next version of the Master Collection is $525? If you upgrade immediately at every iteration (most people don’t), logic suggests that over a seven-year span, you’ll pay less by buying outright. But only if you’re buying new — if you’re upgrading (most people are), the cloud deal isn’t worth it in any way, whatsoever. It’s worth noting that students get a really good discount — $29.99 a month — on the cloud deal. (Edit: Here are a couple more thoughts on the matter of cloud pricing; also corrected the price of the student package, which is $29.99 per month)
woodbro-chillson says: A bit confused about the photomanip: The picture from The Atlantic, which has been proven manipulated, looks exactly the same as the one you alter posted originally from 1991 AP. Those same parts that were proven edited exist in the 1991 AP's picture too, could it be this image was always manipulated and doesn't exist unedited?
» SFB says: That’s exactly what I’m saying. I.E. this photo has been manipulated for over 20 years, and we’ve basically been able to prove that it’s been manipulated since before Photoshop was in wide use and has existed in the AP archives for a couple of decades. Which is kind of an amazing thing to discover. — Ernie @ SFB
