Well that didn’t take long did it. Photoshop CC has been out for about a day now and apparently it has already been cracked. Adobe Photoshop holds the record as the most pirated software, forcing Adobe to change up it’s entire business model, switching to a subscription-based system.
Piracy wasn’t their only reason for switching to this subscription-based model however it was expected that it would take pirates a while to figure out a workaround.
The definition of awhile is now one day. There is torrent link up on The Pirate Bay titled “Adobe Photoshop CC 14.0 Final Multilanguage”. Checking out some of the comments it seems the file is legit.
How long it will take for Adobe to figure out what happened and how they are going to stop it of course is another story but it’s safe to say that as soon as they work out a fix I’m sure there will be someone there to crack it again.
I just want to quickly write, that If you are a photographer and complain about people stealing your work then you should not be using pirated software.
