Angry Subscription service now REQUIRED for Photoshop

I have been a loyal fan of Photoshop (and the creative suite in general) for 15+ years.

I have been very disappointed to find out that you have to subscribe and pay monthly fees to unlock all the features in CS6 (conditional actions, smart object support for liquify, export css, and so on). Even if you've bought the full Photoshop CS6 Extended.

This is not a good development and I hope this will change in the future.

An optional subscription service is an excellent idea, but you should not limit regular customers who pay up front. Cloud storage, file sharing, syncing, etc. are natural things to limit to a cloud service, but to limit individual tools and functions (that in no way depend on an internet connection) inside the program – not cool.

If you agree, +1 my feedback post directly to Adobe here:

Re: Subscription service now REQUIRED for Photosho

I agree with you.
I also have the full PS CS6 extended v13.02 but no subscription and therefore no v13.1.

For me, v13.02 does proper support for liquify on a smart object - unless we aren't talking about the same things.

Running 13.0 (Windows, CS6 Extended) and no Liquify or Blur Gallery on Smart Objects.
It's only for subscriptions according to the Adobe website:

Re: Subscription service now REQUIRED for Photosho

not sure why this works for me OSX CS6 v13.02
see the video:

may have something to do with the script "EnableAllPluginsforSmartFilters.jsx" that was included in older CS versions, but can also be run from CS6

Also, this didn't work correctly in v13.0 pretty sure.

I think the subscription sucks and I will continue with CS5 until I really feel a need for CS6, perhaps CS7?

That's the ticket. Thanks for reminding me about that script, and the video showing to load the last mask.
