I'm a game developer from Russia.
I need Photoshop very often to make a UI/scene/minigame mockup and an animation of it to show how it's supposed to work. It includes working with tens of layers, editing low quality pictures from the internet, making animation as .gif or video, etc.
For two years I was a proud user of Photoshop as a part of Creative Cloud Photography plan. I was paying about 360 rub./month.
But now Creative Cloud Photography plan costs 644 rub./month which is almost twice as expensive as it previously was.
As I was using only Photoshop (Creative Cloud Photography plan gives access to couple of other programs), I had to cancel my subscription.
I thought I could subscribe to Photoshop only and keep using it, but to my surprise I found that Photoshop only subscription is even more expensive! It's 1288 rub./month, which is insane for Russia.
Dear Adobe, please make your software a bit more affordable for those regions it needs especially.
Why is Photoshop costs twice as expensive as Creative Cloud Photography plan which includes other programs? Please, make Photoshop only subscription cheaper than Creative Cloud Photography plan.
Maybe you can make Photoshop cheaper for non-professionals like Unity made it with their product?
Maybe you can make a cheaper version of Photoshop, which includes all basic features without super special tools like levels adjustments, 3D, filters, etc.
I tried different software, but I couldn't find anything that fits my needs, except Photoshop. I hope you hear me, Adobe.
