$9.99/mo for continued support and updates, along with 20GB cloud storage.

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me; like Rick I have the Student versions that are not upgradeable so I will be jumping on board of this train.

Do you get to choose whether to apply the updates or not, or are they applied automatically?

I'm sure this is a lame question, but you are also "renting" Lightroom 5 for this price? If you no longer want to do the membership to Cloud after a year, then you wouldn't have LR5 either, right?

I'll stick with CS6 until a competitor offers a viable alternative at a non subscription level for the end user. Good deal for now, just think though if adobe raises the subscription from $9.99 to $19.99 or higher after that first year and you decide against paying the new price of how limited your options are.

Goodbye Adobe and say hi to some of the other dead software companies for me.

That is correct. You would no longer be able to use LR5.

Adobe wont raise the prices; they are still trying to get a feel for what the market will bare. $9.99 is pretty reasonable for what they are offering to photographers; if anything I see them breaking up the other design packages into similar bundles that are attractive to a select field of interest as they have with this one.

It certainly is. Adobe think the price might change. This is in there Terms and Conditions

" Offer is valid until December 2, 2013, and can be changed without notice.

Renewal
After the first 12 months, we will automatically renew your contract based on the current price of the offering."

I believe you have to commit for 1 year, yes. Adobe's ploy to suck customers in at a cheap price so they feel like they have to continue to commit to Photoshop even when the price goes up.

Adobe has said that as long as you maintain your subscription the price will not increase. We shall see. I subscribed and will decide next June whether or not to continue. I have CS6 to fall back on.

What in the entire breadth and scope of the history of the universe are you basing that on?

I'm pretty sure the price will eventually increase, just like agb said the terms and conditions state:

Renewal
After the first 12 months, we will automatically renew your contract based on the current price of the offering.

When you are automatically renewed at the current price, is there a penalty if you do not cancel prior to the automatic renewal?

Source? I've not seen that, and I rather doubt the price will stay the same forever...

Argh. I considered the photographer CC sub and decided I would give it a shot. Only to find out my educational version of Creative Suite didn't qualify. So, I just 2 weeks ago shelled out the $80 to upgrade to lightroom 5.

Now they friggin change the rules again?!? WTF is going on over there? One can only hope that the subscription model isn't working out as they had hoped and are having to do this kind of thing to rope in more customers.

Way to keep aggravating customers like me adobe. Oh how I wish Aperture would have kept up with Lightroom.

Why are you angry that they improved their offer?

You wouldn't have selected your current path unless you considered it worth it.

In the end, a customer have no right to expect early warnings before a price change is made.
