In this video series entitled “Life After Adobe Cutting The Cord” I approach the topic as a professional photographer, product designer, and educator that has been using Adobe software for well over 20 years.

If you’re tired of renting your creative software from Adobe and want to check out 100% subscription free Adobe alternatives that are either free or have a one-time purchase price, you’ve come to the right place!

Adobe may have recently caused a revolt by A/B testing an increase to their Photography Plan, discontinuing older than 2 versions back downloadables, and issuing a warning to their customers that they MUST IMMEDIATELY DELETE all older Adobe software on their computers or risk possible infringement claim from a third party.

Delving into this dark world where so many creatives have been fearful to go my goal with this series, “Life After Adobe Cutting The Cord” is NOT to bash Adobe products rather explore current alternatives available to photographers, illustrators, video editors, musician, and all other creatives while addressing the dogma deep-rooted in the industry that you MUST use Adobe software if you want to be seen as a professional.

With today’s vast number of Adobe software alternatives, it’s my hypothesis, that creatives no longer need to be beholden to a single creative software monopoly and pay ad nauseam for products that can be remotely rendered inoperable at a moment’s notice.
