Re: How long do they believe the shift to subscription may last?
Adobe doesn't sell camera or lenses - even if you take photographs with a phone you'll need to process them somehow - and Adobe has been busy porting Lightroom and Photoshop to mobes and tablets as well. Still photographers are just a slice of Adobe's Creative Cloud product users.
I've heard anyway many photographers taking this time to go through the images taken in the previous years and making the edits they never did for lack of time.
And the lockdown impacted the sales of new phones as well.
