Rent software? Can't possibly be good--for me. Where is the middle finger key?

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 .

My fees didn't double overnight. They're the same. Don't know where you got that from. Not sure what you mean by 'locked in' either. All my files on on my machine. I'm not going to lose anything even if Adobe goes tits up, which it isn't.

it's all over the web!! - try https://9to5mac.com/2019/05/02/adobe-creative-cloud-price-hike/ as starting point
as for locked in - try not paying your monthly fee and see how long you can access your files!

Well I wasn't aware of the increase for new users it's true, though as 9to5mac.com states, the increase may have been a test, and anyway you can still get the photography plan for the old price using the link they provide. But I can always access my files - they're on my Mac, and backed up, so I don't know what you mean by that. Perhaps you mean the cloud storage, which I don't use. But I do use and love Photoshop and Lightroom Classic. I agree they shouldn't increase their price, even though I love the apps. Pixelmator et al are good but they don't come near Lightroom imo.

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.

Dreamweaver has more competition than almost anything Adobe does other than Photoshop.

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.
