The Earth is 4.6 billion years old. Let’s scale that to 46 years. We have been here for 4 hours. Our industrial revolution began 1 minute ago. In that time, we have destroyed more than 50% of the world’s forests.
So I had this idea ages ago, but I never really got started on it. Earlier this month, I finally did and it turned out great! :D So I’m saving this graphic for May 4th, but now I find out #thefaultinourdeathstars is already a thing?!?
Oh well. I guess there’s little point in keeping it from you, then…
Everyone on my Tumblr dash, PLEASE watch this. Especially if you are a creative artist:
Adobe is going to scrap their hard copies (disks) for their software (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash), and have you pay a subscription for the latest software called the Adobe Creative Cloud. $50 per month. Could you really afford such an expense in the long run?
This is really disturbing. Please hear what he has to say, it really is a serious situation for working artists. Pass this along so others may know about the Adobe Creative Cloud and how horrible it is.
Yep… Just went to see how much Flash costs. You know, to just buy the program? Guess what? After spending a while looking, it appears that you CAN’T anymore. You have to pay an outrageous subscription fee. I hate adobe. Is there a petition going around to stop this nonsense? Because I want to sign it.
Thanks! I know a lot of artists and people who like art follow me. You guys should go sign that.
Today I just signed the petition in the voice against the Adobe Creative Cloud. For those who are not familiar with what the new Creative Cloud can do to you as an artist, I really suggest you watch this video.
For those who have seen, reblogged, faved, here’s the link (as shown in the previous reblog) to sign the petition. Anything can happen, Adobe really needs to know that many artists are not supportive of them controlling not just the software..but the content worked on the Cloud.
Signed! Boosting the signal, I prefer to be able to buy my software.
No one can fucking afford to pay monthly shit as is loke internet and you are essentially required to use AT LEAST photoshop in most major art business fields and since theres no other competitive program just as good that businesses can use then this is a huge slap to the face. Fuck that noise. I cant afford to have a phone with internet for even 50$ a month at the average for most features. Most of the world is having some pretty shitty money issues as is. While expected to pay for more things that didnt exist a few decades ago while making less money to compensate for that. Unless youre fucking rich by some other means then by all means go ahead and pay whatevrr you want. But seeing as most arent and require the programs to work and pay for, etc the cycle of money. God fuck the big companies
Our school newspaper uses these programs on a daily basis and I know we can’t afford to pay for a freakin cloud
