Hope they leave elements out

Don't laugh but i use Elements as to tell you the truth i don't need all of the features from Photoshop CS6. I have tried Gimp and Pixelmator on the mac and use a combination of Aperture & elements for my amateur photography.

There is no way i would pay a subscription for that service as the software is only £60 in the UK. I really hope they leave it alone with this new cloud tie in.

Im not to hopeful though, you can see the writing on the wall especially with Office being tied into Office 365 subscriptions more and more each day.

Lightroom and Elements I imagine have siphoned off a good bit of the less hardcore PS users.

I used to use PS constantly for photo work, now once a week or so. If I hadn't already spent so much time learning it, I could probably get by with something less robust without issue, and I bet there are a lot of amateurs like me. We'll just stick with whatever old version we have as long as we can and call it good.

(FWIW, this kind of reinforces their new subscription model. If their other products have made their CS market almost exclusively professional--eg, they cut out the riffraff like me that were on the margin--that makes subscription a much easier sell.)
