Adobe CS Review


Hi all--I work with Adobe, and was wondering if you all have heard of one of our new services, Adobe CS Review. Have any of you registered for this service?


Funny you should ask--CS Review is a complimentary service for its first year of use. You are automatically registered for the service if you already own CS5. CS Review is a great asset in the creative review process. It helps to reduce back and forth emails, by allowing clients or collaborators to give location specific comments and feedback to a project that is shared by an author. You can even act on this feedback, and implement changes with other Creative Suite programs such as Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Which means the following years it is for a price. And as the poster above, is it priced at $500 like the rest of your products?


Yes, it does cost after the complimentary year of service is up. Even then, it's only estimated at costing $19.99-$29.99 per month. Check out more info here.


Isn't that: $240-$360/ year. PER YEAR!!

When will Adobe realize that their software is NOT made of gold, and that there ARE alternatives to them? As desirable as they are, they are unaffordable for most all but the corporate professionals.

Wake up!


Odd isn't it that Indesign succeeded initially because it was relatively more reasonably priced than Quark XPress.

Now the Adobe CS is like a tax on designers. One they are increasingly less able to afford, largely through the efforts of Adobe at eliminating the skills that made them employable.

Clients now think all they need is the software, or to tell you what to do with the software. Designers are now mere dumb appendages to the hardware/software. The clients may be right, they certainly are not dumb enough to do what we do, mostly without thanks or reward.


If you change the service, do you need to pay to its current price or they will give you a lower price for it??
