Since CC, Adobe updated apps often, reduced prices and added apps to the suite. Yet, people always find something to whinge about.
You know what I did? I pointed it out to a colleague and shared a chuckle.
Sure it's not very neat, but I see why they'd give people the option. I work in a team where some people don't open Photoshop very often - but I'm still going to get them to upgrade because I plan to use all the new features. However, I can see how some teams might not work like that, and would run several versions next to each-other.
Instead of jumping to conclusions, how about showing some empathy for a company that has historically struggled mightily to keep up, and has now finally turned a corner? Have you seen where they were 5 years ago? Have you seen where they are now?
I applaud them. Screwups or not, this is another great update of their most used app.
Looks like this is the new naming schema.
Adobe CS Adobe CS2 Adobe CS3 Adobe CS4 Adobe CS5 Adobe CS5.5 Adobe CS6 Adobe CC Adobe CC (2014) Adobe CC (2015) etc…
The surprising thing here is that you'll need to uninstall the CC version as the CC (2014) is a seperate app and install. I was (falsely) under the impression that the live update model would do away with this.
Sigh I wish it would just update CC.
It's as if they're a desktop app company trying "the cloud" because the revenue model is better for their shareholders.
I have a hunch, this is Adobe subtly going back to the annual release cycle while keeping their cash flow intact. If that's the case, I will most definitely be looking for alternatives in the future.
This company has gone full retard.
I wish they'd just go with CC, CC2, CC3 or something along those lines.
I like this naming convention. thumbs up
I'm not suprised. With every release of Adobe we are facing a new bullshit. Maybe on the next release they're going to move all programs on web.
Not trying to justify their bad UX but a bunch of things changed the hood. Also it CC 2014 crashes a lot right now. If it threw away my last version of Photoshop I would be furious today.
They need to spend way more time focusing on making handoff between versions seamless. You'd think switching to cloud software they'd have done this.
So in a nutshell, Photoshop is the new FIFA?
I assume CC (2014) is the version released today with new features, right?
Once again one of the many screwups I experienced with adobe updating trough CC. A billion dollar company and it can't even get that right…
I hope this doesn't mean I'll have to manually reinstall all the presets and plugins I use.
It looks intentional, not a screwup. This is a new version, like the difference between CS5 and CS6. You get an option to migrate presets and plugins when you first open the new version.
Well I've updated to Premiere CC 2014 and overwrote the current non 2014 version I was running.
Edit: Excuse my foolish replies, seems as if I reacted too soon, it does create a seperate version and doesn't overwrite and importing settings is pretty easy.
The first thing it asked me after installing 2014 was if I wanted to migrate my presets from CC (non-2014). No worries there...
Just installed 2014 and found out it didn't migrate all my plugins. I use the SubtlePatterns plugin a lot and now I'm forced to reinstall every plugin I use…
Preset worked fine though.
