Last November we announced that Visual Studies will not be upgrading from Adobe CS6 to Creative Cloud, and we recommend that students DO NOT buy into the CC subscription model. We will continue to use CS6 as we research suitable alternatives.
We will use this post to compile our research into Mac-based Adobe alternatives. We do not necessarily endorse these products at this point. We will announce our recommendations in the future.
Feel free to leave comments and suggestions.
