Apologies if there's already a thread on this; but I couldn't find one.

Basically the extended the 120/year plan to get the Photo CC with no prior Adobe software purchase (Ws only available before if you had CS3 or newer).

Any comments? I actually lost my my Adobe account (Kind of.. was using my roomates and had everything; but no longer have contact with them) so I have to start over now.

My other option is to buy LR5 and elements eventually; but that would be over a year of CC initial investment; and I tend to upgrade every LR release. I'm just dreading it going to full price after a year; as i don't think i'd pay *more* than 9.99/mo... (Though I'll likely buy LR6 upgrade when it comes out anyway.. I just convinced myself it's a good deal for me)

I just might bite. I had CS5 design premium and I couldn't upgrade at this price.

One question I have is - is LR5 a perpetual license? It always been this way in the past. This would be a really good deal to "upgrade" to LR5 and still get CC5 for a year.

I still cannot get over the subscription. I'd rather be overcharged then have to pay for something monthly that I may lose at some point.

I'm just hoping the PS alternatives step up.

The LR5 is *not* perpetual :( I bit as I needed to buy at least full price LR5 in near future (just got a new laptop and lost access to old adobe account); and this came up.

I could either do 150 now and in 6months likely pay another 79 to upgrade to LR6 (that's just how I am...); or 120 now; a year from today be on LR6 and decide whether to keep on CC @ crazy price; or buy LR outright and drop photoshop.

Thanks for the info! This is now less attractive but I still may consider it.

I saw a thread in "market watch". I bit on this today, know some others that signed up after I told them. I tried to sign fro the $9.99 deal last week and was rejected because my CS6 is a student license.

Because that's the deal Adobe is offering. $9.99 for a subscription plan.

I'm absolutely doing this. Considering the money I spend on LR upgrades which are almost annual now, it's only slightly more expensive to get full blown Photoshop with it. To me this is a no-brainer.

I took out a PS CC subscription and 2 days later found out about this. I cancelled and took out this program. 12€ a month for both packages, that is a good deal and means both will be upgraded together (using LR and PS ACR is nice to be able to do with a smart layer). But LR was not in the CC software dowload app and I had to do it separately.

ok, I know with my copy of LightRoom 5, I can install it on 2 computers. What is the restrictions on the subscription plan? I have a home desktop, laptop, and work desktop. I'm wondering whether I would be able to install on all 3, so long as I only have it actively running on 1 system at a time.

wonder if I can install lightroom on my laptop and home desktop, and then photoshop on my home and work desktop, or if both software needs to be installed on the same two machines.

I'm with you as well.
I will keep LR5 and CS6 with the perpetual license over getting a subscription. I will keep them as long as possible and may look for a replacement work flow. Paying continually for a product that may or may not provide any additional benefit so they can have a continuous income stream.

Wonder you a customer would think if they were charge a monthly fee for the ability to view their images?
