Adobe Cloud- Addtional Storage

I am always looking for ways to simplify my life.  The one goal for the year is to simplify or minimize all areas of my life.  That includes some personal things like clothing and some digital things like file storage.

Today I wanted to see if I could purchase more storage on Adobe Cloud.

I am a member and subscribe to the Photography package which includes Photoshop CC, Lightroom CC and 2 GB of storage.  To most people 2 GB is a lot, right? Let me give you my back-story.  Why am I posting this?  Just in case you are wondering the same thing.

Back-Story:

File storage is a big deal for me as I have high-resolution digital images of my oil paintings and plenty of digital art and photos.  My images total over 127 GB and climbing.

So to keep all of this stuff safe is a big concern to me.  The storage I do have is in-house such as a 1 T hard drive on my laptop, a NAS storage device with mirrored 1 T drives.  I also use several free on-line storage places like Google Drive, Microsoft’s One Drive and Drop Box.  This is a mess as far as I am concerned. So I want to simplify my file storage

Back to the Story:

So today I wanted to see if I could purchase more storage on Adobe cloud.  After searching the web and Adobe forums on the subject, I found that Adobe is rather limited on the storage they allow their users to have and they do not sell additional storage.  What? Do not sell storage?

There are plenty of comments on the forums about this subject and Adobe appears to be very steadfast in their position of not selling storage. I did not contact them because there is plenty of answers on the forms.

So I went to Adobe’s FAQ’s and this is what I found.  They tell you how to delete files but not how to purchase more storage.  So I stopped looking for answers because this tells the whole story.  The story that Adobe will not come out and say. That they do not want to be in the storage business.

adobe-storage I realized that the storage they do offer is for temporary storage.  A place to keep project files. Files that one can work on with a team or access from any connected device.

For example.  Say I have 30 images I need to crop and get ready for posting to my Etsy shop.  I can place them in Adobe Cloud and work on from my phone.  When I am done I can move the files to a permanent storage place.  This makes perfect sense to me.  Why Adobe does not just come right out and state this somewhere in the pages of documentation I looked at is beyond my imagination.

So I tried out my workflow theory and it worked o.k.  Not great, but OK.  The image is too small on the phone. I think if I had a tablet it would be better.  Even better yet, a Windows 10 tablet. Hey maybe I just justified purchasing a Windows tablet.  Humm, I will have to think about that.

Thank you for reading.

Ready to Ship – Two Rings to Go

Two Rings ready to ship to their new owners. I love creating items people want. It makes me feel good. I feel good because I get to add a bit of beauty and fun to my customer’s day.

I feel that I become part of their lives,  and they a part of mine.  I think that is why I have always loved to create or make stuff.  Because I feel this exchange of energy when people receive the product that I made.

Even when I was a sales engineer for a manufacturing company, I felt a sense of responsibility  for the product my customer received and pride in the fact that I represented the group of people who created  it.

What ever you want to call it creation, making, building it all boils down to energy.  And I believe energy good or bad can be sensed by the end-user.  They either have a good experience and a bad one.

I strive to create great experiences for my customers.

Thanks for reading.  Comment if you like. Return often.
