>Adobe is warning some owners of its Creative Cloud software applications that they’re no longer allowed to use older versions of the software. It’s yet another example of how in the modern era, you increasingly don’t actually own the things you’ve spent your hard-earned money on.

> Adobe this week began sending some users of its Lightroom Classic, Photoshop, Premiere, Animate, and Media Director programs a letter warning them that they were no longer legally authorized to use the software they may have thought they owned.

>“We have recently discontinued certain older versions of Creative Cloud applications and and a result, under the terms of our agreement, you are no longer licensed to use them,” Adobe said in the email. “Please be aware that should you continue to use the discontinued version(s), you may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third parties.”

Judging by Adobe's statement, this was in the Terms of Service all along, so they're not doing something they "can't", as in “You can't do this!” type of complaining.

But well, this sucks anyway, it's really the rise of the Rent economy, and people will accept this shit.

In fact, people might battle this ToS in the courts and might win, as it screams "unconstitutional".

It's UI is ok, it's just that since 99.9999% of people are used to photoshop their muscle memory is not adapted to the gimp.

If people don't want to re-learn then I suggest that they should put a bounty to make a new UI for gimp that matches Photoshop.

It's funny, because people bitching around how bad GIMP is compared to photoshop often didn't buy photoshop at all, but they just downloaded a crack. I hope this fag, who makes cracked versions of photoshop rapes users with botnet botnet, because cracking it for free is harmful - it makes nonfree software more convenient to use. If people really had to pay for it and the license would be always enforced, they would quickly invest in GIMP. Is it actually that good, when you're raped by the monthly subscription?

This post just proves Photoshop is better than Gimp in terms of features. If you weren't insecure about the trade-offs and value of sticking to Free Software you wouldn't feel the need to degrade people who still use proprietary software in an almost seething way to feel better about your own choices.

Stallman calmly informs people about why Free Software is better, and he basically gets paid to promote Free Software.

Dude what the fuck are you smoking?

People will use Gimp when the developers fix the fundamental problems with their program that have been in it for ages. A lot of it is about UX boogieman, Gimp is an absolute pain in the fucking ass to use in so many ways, which is why you get this type of response to it >>1063646

To give you the classic example; drawing basic geometric shapes like rectangles and circles and lines is one of the most fundamental functions in any graphics program, but some incomprehensible autism prevents Gimp developers from adding this, one of the simplest tools imaginable into their program even though they don't seem to have any problem having 6 fucking separate brush tools in it.

To give you a more practical example, nobody wants to fiddle with fucking layer channels or resize the layers every 3 minutes because the program won't do it automatically, I cannot even imagine a reason why I would ever want the ability to change those things separately.

You sound like one of those zealots who think of FOSS as a religion and get angry when you see something that isn't free and open source. Nobody outside of /tech/ gives a fuck about muh free software if the software itself is a piece of shit. People use Photoshop because it's the best tool of it's kind period. There's individual parts that some programs do better (the most obvious being painting/brush tools in painting-oriented programs), but overall there's just nothing that does the overall job even close as good as PS. That doesn't mean people love PS/Adobe or don't want it to be replaced with something less jewish, but there isn't anything.

If you want FOSS to stop being shit then tell start by kicking Gimp developers in the balls and demanding that they stop deliberately avoiding things that Photoshop did right just to be special, and then kick Krita developers in the balls and tell them to stop with the fucking "it's le painting brogram so we won't add certain common features XD" and then kick them in the balls again and tell them to stop focusing on some obscure bullshit like animation features that nobody uses, and instead fix the basics that are still half assed and/or broken.

Topkek. That's a fallacious reasoning.

Why do I even need to degrade people who uses proprietary software when they are getting degrade by the proprietary software they use ?

How do you not want to offense how users work with proprietary software when they already don't know how their tools work even tho they think they know ? You can approach this by all possible angles, their is just too much shit that needs to be changed for people to not take it badly.

Explain and show proof to someone that all phones are backdoored and recording them.

Will they stop using their phone even tho it has a negative impact on them and the group of users? Most of them won't.

Explain and show proof to someone that all proprietary software is backdoored, has anti-features, DRM and snoops on them.

Will they stop using the proprietary software even tho it has a negative impact on them and the group of users?

Most of them won't.

People do not realize the consequences of their actions because it's digital. Because their were never taught correctly how to interpret digital tools based on physical tools.

>Terry Davis called everybody "nigger cattle" for their choices

Terry was schizophrenic. And to be fair even RMS used to insult people but not by saying that people were niggers. RMS used terms like "people who use windows are suckers" or "people are giving up their freedom when they use proprietary software". Stallman is correct but such approach is aggressive in the sense that you tell them to feel guilty. PR is hard and will remain hard.

No, it's a Gimp issue. It doesn't matter what caused it, whether it was incompetence from the Gimp team, Adobe's secrecy, or a direct intervention by Satan to thwart the spread of free software. What matters is the consequence, which is that much of the large body of work currently stored in PSD files would become inaccessible.

If people hired developers to enhance GIMP or to make a new, better free software replacement for photoshop, they would gain more. Using Adobe products is a trap - it just starts with proprietary software and ends with monopoly and cloud shit.

Krita is the opposite side of the same Gimp coin. It's not better as much as it just has the good and bad parts in different places. Honestly if you combined the good parts of Krita with the good parts of Gimp you'd have a pretty spiffy program, but separately neither is great outside some very limited contexts.

To be more specific, Krita has a lot of things that are half assed, buggy, or completely unfinished. Text tool being the most obvious example. Some parts of the UI are broken or stupid, for example the sliders don't always work properly, and the canvas zooming steps are at weird arbitrary levels instead of logical increments. It has much less filters and many of them are shit, for example the sharpening filter gives all kinds of artifacts. What it does right is mostly UX, the core usability is much more comfortable than Gimp. It also has a much better layer system and supports non-destructive editing, even if it gets laggy sometimes.

Gimp - Image editing.

Krita - painting.

Most of the people comparing Photoshop and GIMP have no idea what they're talking about and are not in a position to make any kind of reasoned assessment.

I've used GIMP on my (exclusively) Lignux desktops nearly daily for years, and I run a media business that relies on the Adobe suite (Photoshop, Lightroom, After Effects, and Premiere).

Photoshop's tools -- all of them -- have built-in smarts about the way they do things. It's especially noticeable with selections and opacities. Photoshop generally produces better-looking results for the most common cases, creating refined edges with subtle alpha taper, without you having to do anything at all. This is a godsend for someone just trying to make something look nice and not all aliased and fucked. Now, in certain cases (usually shitposting) I want the program to stupidly do what I told it to do and nothing else, and that's when I use GIMP. But for professional media you're going to have a better time with Photoshop.

GIMP still does not have non-destructive editing. This is critical for explorability and flexibility. Destructive editing binds you to a linear path of undo/redo. It fucking blows. Non-destructive editing means you can change anything at any time, which is the entire point of computerized editing, really. Imagine having a video editor that isn't an NLE. What's the point of this being on a fucking computer? I really cannot emphasize how much of a mental box this is. It's totally suffocating. What the hell?

Photoshop's Content-Aware system simply cannot be beat. That shit is magic. For those who don't know, Content-Aware tools use orphan souls and presumably machine learning to magically fill in the background of things. You know how fucking boomers will ask if you can move things in a photo to reveal what's behind them and you're like no, you stupid fuck, that isn't how any of this works, the data doesn't exist? Well now, most of the time, you can. I've removed people and objects from photos and even video and had the holes immediately and automatically filled in, with results ranging from serviceable to literally pixel-perfect. It's really astonishing. We've had footage come in with dirt on the sensor and I get some coffee and polygon that shit and Adobe makes it go away.

When I have to use Adobe software, I bitch a lot. I'm usually mumbling curses under my breath the entire time, because a lot of things are so fucking asstarded with the UI. I'm used to GIMP and I prefer GIMP. But it produces better results, full-stop.

GIMP is essentially super-MSPaint and I use it as such, for edits, memes, and glitch art (which I'm very fond of). At all of these things GIMP is easier, faster, and better than Photoshop. For anything real-world you're going to get better results with Photoshop. I love GIMP, but it's currently an image editor, not a photo editor. This is a critical distinction.

Don't even get me started on Lightroom/Darktable or Premiere/anything else. Fuck.

Adobe software sucks in various ways but it's generally much more reliable and usable than the alternatives and this is why it persists.I never went to a "media course" whatever the fuck that is. I've always been self-taught, like all my editors.

Yeah, it's proprietary software, but I'm not going to sit here morally cranking out shitty-looking photography when I can use Adobe and make a ton of money instead. Lol.

I forecast much asshurt and continued bitching ITT but it doesn't matter because you're all wrong. Seriously, there are some people who just don't fucking get it and never will, like office drones who think their Word document website with twenty different rainbow fonts looks good (fuck I despise Office so god damn much). Some people just like to put shit into their eyes. More power to you. I'm going to be over here extracting dosh from suits.

I've tried to use Gimp many times for various purposes but I just can't imagine where this argument comes from (ignoring the stupid shit and bloated cancer adobe has added ever since creative cloud). Can you explain what you think Gimp does better and how?

No it doesn't. It works like the GMIC filling filter with the sole difference of not being adjustable thus producing worse results

For memes I don't give a shit if it looks perfect and it's much, much faster to throw things together, resize canvas, select+delete, snap layers to content, ctrl+., etc. Photoshop makes these things less accessible whereas GIMP has a very select+delete workflow by necessity.

I would guess it's just me being more used to GIMP, but it's happened a lot that I'm watching one of my editors throw some shitpost together after hours in Photoshop and I'm like "just select by color" and they have to dick around through menus instead of just keybind+click+delete

You summed it up pretty well. GIMP has less functionality but it just works for when you need something to just work. Photoshop has more power but has a god awful UI that requires you invest days learning all it's corner cases to make it work for you. The autistic artist will benefit from shop, but the average person will just see a million options and no way to find what they're looking for.

Photoshop is also bloated to fuck. It can make gaymin machines choke on how bloated it is. Which is weird consider how many artists just want to use laptops and tablets when they sit in a starbucks. Maybe drawing tablets have replaced that market though?

If you could get 'shop without the cloud I'd learn it. But cloud stuff is a ball ache. I don't want 5 things running just so I can edit an image.

Personally I find Gimp to be the opposite of fast. That said I don't have every function mapped into muscle memory so maybe that's why. I find Krita for instance to be much easier to do quick memeshit in.

>select+delete

What do you mean by this? Deleting everything outside of the selection or something?

>>1064124

>the average person will just see a million options and no way to find what they're looking for

Gimp is arguably even worse for this though because it has a less clear design in my opinion. The UI of PS is cluttered but it's at least very organized and clearly defined.

>Photoshop is also bloated to fuck

Ever since adobe shat out creative cloud all of their software has become incredibly bloated and slower, you'll see all kinds of web engine processes and node.js and shit running when you use their programs nowadays.

I find GIMP's easier to navigate because you can mouse over and less options. it's not menus menus menus.

GIMPS biggest UI problem is it fucked up all the icons in the latest release and you have to change them back to the old ones in a menu some where

>>“We have recently discontinued certain older versions of Creative Cloud applications and and a result, under the terms of our agreement, you are no longer licensed to use them,” Adobe said in the email. “Please be aware that should you continue to use the discontinued version(s), you may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third parties.”

The courts will ride Adobe because the jury are still humans and they don't like being told things like that.

I'm saying that the courts will side with the one who issued the license agreement. They will hold the people who chose to agree with the license agreement (the licensee) to the terms that they agreed to. The idea is that if they refuse to agree to license, then the potential licensee has zero license to use the Adobe software and therefore is liable to a lawsuit by Adobe.

Only if you never share your project files with anyone. The moment you send out a PSD you force the other person to use Photoshop as well. Adobe would rather have nine out of ten people pirate Photoshop because that one person is going to buy it, than have ten people use Gimp.

except the majority of people buy photoshop to make JPGs and PNGs, and only a small minority buys photoshop to open PSDs from other people
