I'm officially dropping Adobe
« on: May 20, 2019, 05:47:01 AM »
So, I just learned Adobe got into a legal spat with one of the companies they teamed up with.

I've been using an older version of Photoshop for two reasons.  1. I'm too attached to Photoshop CS4 to upgrade.  2. I refuse to pay a monthly subscription for such a thing.

For a while, this worked well for me.  However, I have now learned that there could be legal complications moving forward due to this legal spat.  As such, so I don't get into legal problems, I'm dropping Adobe.

Excuse me while I use GIMP and others for the next few weeks to see what I like best.

See ya later! :wave

Please let me know how the other programs turn out. I’ve been using adobe for years and I can’t imagine quitting now, I use so many of their programs. Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, and I’ve been experimenting with their Character Animator. I also don’t like the direction the company is taking, so please let me know if some other program is just as good.

Well, here's my first quick work with Paint.Net.  It's nothing more than a quick crop.

It's the list shown in this video of alternatives you can try.



Like I said, a quick crop.  I'll see what else I can do with it.
