    Well, they can be sued. Anyone can sue for anything. Collecting is another matter. But, it's a game. When I lived in Colorado, lawyers would file lawsuits in Grand Junction because it was as far from the major population centers as they could get. And, if you don't show up, you lose. And, we had a man in a wheelchair and a lawyer who formed a partnership to sue businesses. The guy in the wheelchair would find a supposed violation of ADA and the business, or their insurance company, would settle for $20k-$40k to avoid the expense and risk of going to court.

    Hey, remember Apple sued Microsoft because Windows sort of looked and felt like Apple OS.

    This is their Creative Cloud, a software as a service program. You don't "buy" these versions.

    Unlike Elements and Lightroom, which can still be purchased.

    I have their last purchase version, Creative Suite 6. It wasn't cheap and it's a pain when buying new cameras since raw files aren't supported and I shoot in raw.

    At some point I'll need to either go to the Creative Cloud or find other software. I detest Adobe for doing this.

    Being held ransome for SAAS sucks.

    And, there are always alternatives. I don't get my knickers in a twist, I just find another program. Right now I use Snapseed but I'm not a professional photographer or into graphic art. I just like taking photos.

    For me the issue is raw files. They can really be adjusted well in photoshop. Not all photo software has this capability.
    I may give professional photography a go once I fully retire from my current profession.

    In the USA any fool can sue anybody for anything.

    I suppose that technically they might try to sue claiming that you don't own an old photoshop only licensed it and they are revoking the license.
    But if they do not reimburse you then you could easily countersue them and win. Except they are bigger and have more lawyers.

    I guess the question is how to they know I still have photoshop 5 on my win98se or photoshop 7 on my xppro box.
    There was no way I was ever going to rent any software from anybody.

    Push comes to shove get GIMP free and tell adobe where to stick it.

    pro photo

    Get a raw converter and use GIMP.

    As to being a pro I say forget it.

    Digital and the internet has made it impossible for the typical person to make money with writing, music, art, or photography.
    It is a very long tailed phenomenon where a handful do very well, some do okay, more make min wage, but most people don't make their expenses back.

    I've researched a bunch about going pro. I realize the risks involved. As I said, I'm considering it. If I can make some money to help offset my costs I'd be happy. Still, its its mostly a love of photography for me. Spending $2,000 to refill a printer gets expensive.

    I'll have to look into a raw converter. I've used GIMP on my linux machine, but not on my pc. Do you have any experience with raw converters?

    I looked at going pro. I am a writer, photographer, and also wannabee music producer and art gallery owner.

    The numbers just did not work. Not for any of those ideas.

    I won my share of ribbons at a top national photo club.
    I looked at doing sports and event photog. And some other specialties but not weddings. Uncle Bob and his SLR killed that biz.
    I did some free lance newspaper work that was not paid just to help out local organisations.

    Making a living at photography is just not in the cards for more than a few people these days.

    Not sure about your printer. Depends how much you print and the size. what do you think your per square foot cost is?
    2000 to refill a printer sounds like a very large ink jet which does not make sense until after you are a successful pro.
    I had looked at getting a large printer but found it more cost effective to use one of the many labs.
    My small canon makes great images up to modest sizes big enough to win at the photo club.


    Have not used a converter. But you need one with GIMP to do RAW.

    I find that photoshop 7 and jpgs work fine for what I do.
    GIMP was used by my son. I do not need it as long as my xppro box holds up.


    My advice is to do it as a hobby and if you make money then be very happy but do not expect to make money with it.
