What has got into Creative Cloud? The most recent version of Bridge, in particular, does not work at all on my system, a MacBook Pro with the latest Mac OS, Big Sur 11.1, installed. When I try to open a folder in Bridge, the colored wheel keeps on spinning, and the process gives up. After my latest attempt to install it, and one successful opening, the software crashed every time I tried to start using it. I had to cancel the subscription long before expiration time, which has set me back 480 SEK for nothing. Adobe's owners must be greediy mafia bosses! I have now switched to using Pixelmator Pro instead.

This is the most evil software I've ever seen that is not, strictly speaking, malware. It's spyware, bloatware, and adware. Spyware? On launch, it connects to about 40 hosts, including analytics company New Relic. Bloatware? Installing it downloads about 460 MB per computer. Adobe Application Manager, Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Creative Cloud Experience, and Adobe Sync (all in /Applications/Utilities) together take up 448 MB. This might be foregivable if the Mac had no good package installer, but Apple provides a quite decent package utility. But it's worse. Almost every time I launch Creative Cloud Desktop, it tells me an update is available, and all updates seem to be mandatory, so that's another 460 MB or so per computer. It puts updating my software on Adobe's schedule, not mine. When a new update is released, I selfishly wait a while to let others do the beta testing. That's especially true for Creative Cloud Desktop, which in the past had a bug that randomly deleted files. So say a new version of Photoshop is released. I wait a while, then launch Creative Cloud Desktop to update Photoshop. But I discover that Creative Cloud Desktop has just been updated, so I wait a while before risking downloading it. By then, Photoshop has been updated again and I'm back to the beginning. It's even worse. I wanted to uninstall an old version of Photoshop to free up some badly needed space. I ran Uninstall Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 and Creative Cloud Desktop launched! Of course with a mandatory update. I had to install new software to free up space. I might have been out in the field, with no Internet access, desperately needing space, and unable to uninstall an old version of Photoshop. Adware? Every time I launch Creative Cloud Desktop (when there's not a mandatory update), it's telling me about some wonderful new Adobe software or service of absolutely no interest to me. What I really want is just to download three packages (Photoshop, Bridge, Camera Raw), then use the Mac package utility to install them on all my computers. I download once on my schedule and install on my schedule. Creative Cloud Desktop launches automatically after installation or an update. If it contained any malware, the malware has already run. I want to install a package, scan the installed application for malware, and only then launch it. Finally, I have to log in to Creative Cloud Desktop, meaning I have to trust it to transport my credentials securely. If I don't trust Apple's TLS implementation in Safari, I can use a different browser, including an open source browser. With Adobe I have no choice. If I were younger and not hopelessly trapped in the Photoshop ecosystem, I'd be seriously looking at alternatives like GIMP, Skylum Luminar, or Capture One.

The hate is based on the fact that once they have you and your files, you are locked into Adobe's parasitic bleeding - and what a surprise, the fees doubled overnight last week. Pay up or lose your work. Parasitic work practice - may be good for bottom line but not for thinking users, especially when Pixelmator (USD$30) offers features of Photoshop and Illustrator .

Truly the worst program. I don't wish ill upon anyone (even in these dark times) but the person/ people responsible for this program need to be fired. It's just appalling, awful, no responsibility is taken by the people who've taken your subscription money when the program fails (and I guarantee you it will/ does). This program stops you working.

Adobe CSS is a textbook case of what happens when one corporation enjoys a monopoly on a product or service in a capitalist economy. There's only one known cure for the kind of crap many people have mentioned below -- they are in urgent need of competition to keep them honest and force t hem to put out quality products. I am amazed that other developers haven't responded to the challenge of putting out software that can compete with such CSS components as Dreamweaver. If they did a decent job this would surely prove immensely profitable since there are very many of us who would walk away from Adobe products in a heartbeat, given the chance.

This the software that gets stuck or crashes the most on my Mac (OSX 10.11.5). It used to be Microsoft Office but Adobe beat them by far. To be fair, Microsoft made progress and the Office for Mac 2016 is more reliable. After a few days without rebooting my computer, Creative cloud won't detect Lightroom and Photoshop installed on my computer until I reboot my Mac. I rarely reboot my computer (only when updates require it actually). I can kill Creative Cloud, restart it, kill everything containing “adobe” in its name in the activity monitor, it doesn't help, I need to reboot. And so far (one year) I had to uninstall/reinstall completely two times already, because even the reboot didn't help. I can't believe Adobe produce this kind of crap. Oh, and I changed computer in the middle of this delightful year with Creative Cloud: I didn't restore from Time Machine, I set the new mac up from scratch, so I am certain this issue is not related to my Mac: indeed, it is still happening on the new Mac.

To me (I have been working with Adobe products since 1994) it seems that Adobe has changed their focus from producing software for creatives to become a data harvester. Nowadays the applications perform an uncomfortable amount of undocumented and suspicious server calls not only at the start of an application but also intermittently. Adobe refuses to disclose what information is being extracted from the user's computer (Red flag!). In case of Photoshop there haven not been many useful improvements in years. Old bugs and inconveniences prevail and do I need to mention that organizing brushes into folders has been a long standing request which would be exactly how much effort to do for one of the biggest software companies out there...? Instead users are being milked monthly, and all focus seems to go into binding them as close as possible to the Adobe dungeon. It is sad to see that once an exciting ally to professional creatives has now turned into something... that feels almost hostile. I am excited to see competition rising slowly and hopefully take over the industry standard some day.

Just not working at the moment. Perennial spinning ball when it comes to updating Apps (perhaps it's most important task?). I would view having any working versions of LR & PS as an achievement in itself - but you won't have up to date copies with the Creative Could Desktop app.

I upgraded from Adobe CS5 to Adobe CS6 right when this whole greedy subscription nonsense began, and I don't regret it one bit. I will continue to use CS6 until Apple upgrades make it impossible to use. At that point, I will choose an alternative app -- possibly Pixelmator -- to replace CS6.

I understand that large corporations and companies are happy with Adobe's subscription model. However, as has been stated many times here, there are many of us who are not corporate giants. Neither do we own large businesses or even small shops.

We are quite often single individuals who simply want the best tools for designing our websites. We have very limited budgets, and perhaps -- like myself -- live on a fixed monthly income. We cannot afford to be dishing out $600 annually to Adobe. Neither do we feel the need to update our software every year.

The fact that Adobe's apps stop working -- and from what I have read, all personal work is lost and becomes inaccessible -- upon terminating a subscription, makes this subscription model all the more sour and undesirable.

It is people like us who Adobe has pretty much abandoned now, because all they care about is Big Money. They need to remember their roots from a few decades ago. They need to be reminded that it was people like me and you who gave them their start, and that they wouldn't even be where they are at today if it wasn't for us scraping together enough money to purchase their expensive products.

This money-driven world is for the birds, and may the birds poop on Adobe's products. After CS6, I am done with them, after 22 years of using their products!

I recommended my company move to the subscription service a year ago. This week when I upgraded one machine to the latest versions of CC 2014, all my main apps opened but documents were "frozen" - four hours of phone calls later and two hours of setting up a new profile on my machine, I will never again recommend this subscription service. First they said it was caused by deleting the older CC versions, then they changed their minds and said it was a known font issue, then they changed their minds again and said it was the profile of my machine. So the only solution was to create another profile which was extremely disruptive and I had no use of my machine the whole day. Their version of "support" (first level and supervisors was a joke). I had no problems before installing upgrades, now everything is a mess.

With Apple's recent big push into cloud services in Yosemite one has to wonder what to make of 3rd party developers like Adobe coming out with their own offerings. When an OS manufacture like Apple comes out with a cloud solution it seems like a logical natural step. 3rd party developers simply tap into the storage provided by the OS so they only deal with one service. Why should I have one service for Adobe products and then another for all other software developers?
