was reminded this morning about Adobe's horrible subscription model and wanted to mention the Affinity suite. i've been using their PS and Illustrator clones for most of this year and they're great.
$50 each, no subscription, and do almost everything the Adobe stuff does and some stuff it doesn't.
their InDesign clone is in free beta right now, too. oh, and they have ipad versions as well.
no affiliation, i'm just ecstatic there's a real alternative.
