Hi Tricia,
I have been paying the monthly fee for Creative Cloud for a few years now. I like that I never have to think about or make a decision regarding whether or not to upgrade my software—something I always dreaded. I also like that I have access to Adobe Typekit, which offers use of some nice fonts (at no extra charge), and that I have access to other Adobe software beyond just Photoshop and Illustrator, some of which I've actually used. ;)
The downside is of course the monthly fee. As Ron said; it's just the cost of doing business, and for me it's well worth it.

Hi All,

I think I am going to bite the bullet and get a subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud. I am embarrassed to say how old my Adobe Suite is but let’s just say it is pretty old and now that I just upgraded my MacBook I can’t get Illustrator to work - it just freezes. :( 

Please share your experiences with the subscription - I want likes, dislikes, cost per month etc…
