Adobe's Creative Suite is often at the forefront of a designers being - providing us with the necessary tools to progress in an ever-changing sector of work.
For that reason, it is no surprise that the software is one of the most successful in the world. Though, success comes at a price - Adobe Photoshop is one of the most pirated softwares in the world. Magnet links for at least two versions of Adobe Photoshop CC (Creative Cloud) 14 for Windows are circulating on the Pirate Bay, as well as copies of Dreamweaver CC 13 and Adobe Illustrator CC 17.
Adobe have never appeared to make a great deal of effort to prevent piracy of their software - probably as it is near impossible. Though Creative Cloud has been released in an effort to cease the spread of peer-to-peer sharing of the apps. A monthly subscription fee is paid to use the company’s software suite instead of paying a one-time fee up front to download or buy a physical copy of a specific program.
Despite this setback, Adobe claim that they have seen success with their new subscription service, boasting a tally of 700,000 as of Wednesday (June 19).
