I've been using Photoshop for for quite a long time. When - a few years back - the webz announced that Adobe released the old CS2 for general use, I jumped on it, installing it both at home and at work. This, however, turned out to be a false rumour/hoax, so I decided it was time to pay up. I was a grown (some would even say: old) man, making a decent living, it was about fucking time I started acting like one!
So, I contacted a licensed Adobe reseller here in Israel, and bought a single annual license of Photoshop - for use at home (hobby) and work (work).
Mistake. Huuuuuuugh mistake.
I've made several attempts to describe the complete and total clusterfuck of stupid that is my situation right now - no way I can do it accurately in under 3000 words... The (very) short version: It started with the reseller forgetting to forward my second year renewal in time, the nice people at Adobe support for some reason adding unwanted licenses - for the complete Adobe CC package! - to my account (which I'm now told I have to pay for!), and the one license that I did pay ($340) for - Photoshop CC - on "trial" mode and about to run out. I've had endless conversations with the nice support people, who tell me that I need to pay the money and/or talk to my reseller, and with my reseller who tells me that I need to talk with Adobe support. Nothing changed.
My last chat with Adobe support ended with me writing down a strong profanity - something I believe I have never done in 20 years of using the web. Ratchit - if you're reading this - sorry, you know it wasn't aimed at you; but I do mean it: FUCK Adobe. They have a good product, and I'll continue to use it, but I'm damned if they'll ever see one more penny from me.
