Remember this is a test phase

Its like gasoline - they jack up the price, everyone moans, then it comes down a little and everyone thinks its a bargain

I bet Adobe will roll back the price to $15/ month and most people will remain with them

FWAK  you know what 'without a kiss'.

I have the 'free year' for Photoshop/Lightroom, which runs until sometime later this year.

What happens if I wish to upgrade to the whole CC package? I can't cope with Premiere Pro CS6 any longer!

Try Davinci Resolve to break the chain of servitude. I dropped Premiere Pro and glad I did, Resolve does everything I need and does not force you into a strangle hold cloud plan... worth checking out.

I've spent the whole day trying to work with Davinci Resolve and really struggled with it - apart from the colour correction features which were a joy to use. I've downloaded a 7 day trial of the latest Premiere Pro and I'll compare side by side tomorrow and decide which way I go. I'd like to go with Resolve, as I hate the fact that I can't own the Creative Suite as I used to - I've only paid for Photoshop until now, and stayed with old versions of Illustrator, After Effects and Premiere Pro.

There certainly is a learning curve... just like Premiere the first time. I spent a day just going through Youtube videos and how to's and now find Resolve to be acceptable. At this point I only use the free version and that said I am only doing basic editing, clipping, and color correction. I was used to Premiere and could zing through my workflow, and am fairly certain I will zing through with a bit of training on Resolve and save $$$ in the process with the same results.

Yes, but I set myself a task that I can do in 10 minutes in Premiere Pro and, even with the help of video tutorials, I can't yet get the same result in Davinci. I will give it another go today, as I maybe just need to get my head around it.

Nope  :D ... everyone must have been very vocal as they've added the 9.99 package back... in addition to the other 19.99 one.

This seems to be a better approach. Provide the bigger package (more space etc) for those that need it but keep the original one for those that don't. One size doesn't fit all in this case and thankfully, they realised that.

What exactly is it that you are having difficulty replicating in Resolve?

I was following a tutorial to remove some dust spots from a sky. The instructions effectively made a new layer with a small inverted mask, and I moved the layer underneath slightly to shift the dust under the mask.

This worked for one spot but, other than saving and reopening, I couldn't figure out a way to do it for a second or third spot, as I couldn't find a way to flatten or link the first two layers together.

I am by no means an expert, but I think you could set up multiple masks on the same "layer" or node. If that doesn't work, you could add additional nodes. I think if you kept them on the same node, all displacements or tracking movements would be identical. Again, I could be totally wrong, but that's what I would try.

Thanks for trying to help but I tried that and, because the mask was inverted, and effectively made a hole through to the bottom layer, if I made multiple masks I has multiple holes, so moving the bottom layer meant everything had to line up.

What I needed to do somehow was link the two layers together then add a new layer above for the second dust spot. I didn't find a way.

OK, I've just upgraded to the full Adobe package, and asked on the live chat whether I could have credit for the remaining months on the free offer.

This is the answer I got:

"I really apologize for that you have to cancel your subscription and after that you can purchase that subscription in which you will get free PS/LR."

I tried to continue the conversation - do I need to cancel the PS/LR package or the new package?? But no one is answering me.

I am going away tomorrow, so will probably have to revisit this when I get back, but I can't be the only person to upgrade who has had to deal with this? Does anyone know of an easy solution?

Microstock was based on WOO YAY. WOO YAY I sold a photo via microstock and got a few pennies. Or another approach is WOO YAY I had to sell 30 photos to pay for my monthly Adobe subscription.

Hi Mat, as a Creative Cloud user and Adobe Stock contributor this is a great offer. Is there anything we need to do to qualify once we have met the 300 submissions or $500 of earnings threshold?

Thanks

The giveaway was last year, but hopefully they will do the same this year.

As long as Adobe free subscription / giveaway etc is discussed
I would like to express a complaint on the last (last year) editing challenge.
Greece (EU) was left out of the major contest.
:(

You can often (athough not always) get an idea of how old a thread is by the number of pages it has reached. In this case, it's 12. :)

Just wanted to say thank, Adobe.

I upgraded and was given a couple of month free, to compensate for the loss of the remaining months on my 'free' year.

Good customer relations, which is much more than can be said for most stock sites these days!

I have a user code for the free Offer, but when I go to place my order there doesn't appear to be any box for inserting the code (or for any coupon) - just boxes for credit card details.

Okay, I found that I had to click on the specific link in the email.  Did that, inserted my code, and got the message 'your code has expired'.  Hmmm...

Yet in the email and on Adobe's web site it says the offer code is valid until July 2021.  But in the offer FAQ official rules it says it expires 31/12/2018.

It may be that once  you have the code it will expire July 2021, but the offer to get the code expired on x/x/2018. Yes, doesn't really make sense, but might be the "reason"

At the end of last year I received a reminder email about my free year offer code (because I haven't yet redeemed it) and after repeating the code and instructions on how to use it, there is this:

"You have until July 2021 to redeem it."

That's unambiguous. If you're experiencing a bug that's preventing you from using it, I'm guessing support is the route to go (and Mat if that doesn't produce success).

Actually, it would be downright appreciated!

Not to mention making us contributors predisposed to send our best work to Adobe. :D
