You guys are going to laugh at me for this.
I pay monthly for creative cloud suite and I have been using windows photoviewer to go through my pictures. I want an easier way to view my photos more efficiently.
What software do you guys use?

I'd say that there isn't really anything wrong with adobe CC, I use it at work but that's mostly because there's 20+ people who need to use it jumping in and out of different projects, and the adobe products are the only thing that *everyone* is familiar with.
Photo viewer is more a matter of preference than anything else.
Install the addons and use thumbnail viewer (t button)
Seconding LR, this is basically exactly what it's made for. LR lets you organize and view images, do basic processing, and send them to Photoshop or other external programs for serious editing with minimal fuss.
irfanview the best. setup photoshop as the external editor, Options>Properties/Settings>Miscellaneous> browse to the photoshop exe. now you can hit shift + 1, and images will pop into photoshop.
If you want something really fast, Photo Mechanic is also really great. I prefer Lightroom for most stuff, though, because it has basic editing built in, but when I used to shoot sports and had deadlines, PM was incredible.
He won't respond, cause murricans can't wrap their heads around how shit perpetual payments are. It's kinda why most of them are in debt: they're paying so much shit monthly then can't figure out why they're broke all the time.
Photoshop is made for professionals. Making $10 per month as a professional photographer is very nearly nothing.
Do you not pay rent? Do you not pay for electricity? Do you not pay for a cell phone plan?
With CC, you get all the updates, right away. Without it, you have to keep paying for upgrades. If you don't want the upgrade, get CS5 and shut up about it.
For as long as you want to pay it? Until you cancel it? You can also pay yearly I think to save some money.
I just pay $10 a month for Photoshop and Lightroom.
It's cheaper than a WoW subscription.
You're acting like the alternative is free. If you don't want to be a teenaged faggot stealing something, then you either pay $10 a month, or a lot more all up front, and then re-buy the upgrades.
I'm not too stupid to pirate. I used to pirate. And then I turned 19 and realized that I don't live in a vacuum and stealing whatever I want because I can is a really shitty way to live, for everyone else.
What are you, some sort of communist? Who gives a fuck about everyone else?
But that's not the point. I refuse to pay for CC out of principle -- perpetual payments for software are a very very bad thing. Just go ask /g/.
I agree with you completely.
I got photoshop and Lr CC (actually just CS6) for free. If there is a new update, there's a torrent for it. As for games, every game in my steam account was for free. Including the Valve ones like HL and portal, CS serious etc. legally obtained.
> teenaged faggot stealing something
its not stealing, it's sharing :^) better than paying especially if you're just a hobbyist
It's really only bad if you plan on using a single version of something for eternity. The subscription structure isn't that big a deal for certain businesses, which seems to be what adobe is going after anyway.
Didn't MS publish a statistic that something like 60% of all Windows installs are pirated, and they don't give a fuck (read: don't implement stricter safeguards) cause enterprise is the only market they actually care about?
Literally everyone smart enough to pirate pirates everything they can. Simply because it's actual retardation that'd make you pay for something when you can get it free. There's just no reason.
China is 90%. Worldwide is 57%.
>he thinks paying for updates is okay
I bet you "upgraded" to Windows 10 too you cuck. It'll be subscription based soon, for "updates".
If you're an appul user you're probably already dumb enough to keep paying for software forever.
Interesting, but not surprising.
Larger businesses with clients like government entities have a much harder time getting away with piracy, especially since they actually get pretty thoroughly audited every so often.
