I quit Abode two years ago and have not missed it since. It's become a sh!+ company as far as I'm concerned. Aperture, Pixelmator and the Nik Suite serve me just fine.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

But you have to endure MAC to use Aperture. Is Apple any better than Adobe? :) Now I know that will start an argument.

Instead of Aperture (for PC users) you could try DPP and/or DxO. I don't care for Adobe but I'll stick with LR (so far).

I got in on the student discount special for the entire suite at $199/yr if paid up-front. I like having Premiere for occasional use, but not enough to spend $600/yr. At the end of my current subscription I'll either downgrade to Lr+Ps or but them used here or on eBay.

If I were making money at this I'd just chalk it up as a business expense.

Always kind of bothers me when we can't simply BUY a program anymore - or if we can, it soon will not run on PC as the OS changes -- bums me to have to upgrade Programs every time I upgrade to a new PC -- would like to keep the OS and the programs I already have, it all works fine - and I know how to run them -- they talk to my other three machines ... I'd like to be able to buy a new PC when this one breaks without the added expense of re-buying EVERYTHING on the planet ... annoying, at least that!! And ultimately, we have to then buy three new machines so each can talk to the other -- eventually gets VERY expensive to keep each one contiguous with the others ... when only ONE part breaks ... RANT OVER :)

Companies are sucking it into a subscription - but we get no new upgrade with it. At least a magazine subscription is NEW each month ... not simply a replay of what we're using ...

So my workplace decided to upgrade to CC in couple of weeks from now.

That means I will be 'forced' to upgrade my CS6 at home to CC to keep all my workflow files consistent.

The thing is I normally only use PS, AI, ID, FL, DW, LR & BR for work (note that I already bought my LR 5 separately). I don't even utilise all other apps from the whole suite.

On the slightly brighter side on this is that if I go for CC I only need to pay AU$30 monthly for the 1st year. But after that, it'll jump back to normal price at AU$50.

I was hoping for like AU$15 a month for the whole suite. But AU$30 a month on top of my existing bills & mortgage, it's just too much for me.

I'd rather go for pirating the software for my own use in my home if that's the case.

I'm sure it varies from business to business, but when my company got corporate licenses and I was "authorized" to use them that authorization extended to doing "work from home". So you might contact your management and see if their CC licence can extend to work at home, that is, if the work you do for them can extend to some home work!

I keep getting Adobe emails for the $10 a month LR5 and Photoshop "photographer package". Id this a full photoshop version or is this some PS lite version that has just enough options so you get upset and are forced to get a full version for extra $$?

With as much as they upgrade LR I am thinking $10 a month may be worth it for me. And If I really like LR5 and want to stick with it, then I'll just buy the full version license down the road.

Right now I just use the Canon DPP program but am limited on a lot of things, or at least feel limited. Seems like working in another program may be a lot easier.

It is the full version of lightroom 5.5 and Photoshop CC.


Um... Hi

As for LR, you can download the 30 day trial to give it a try/see if you want to stick with it without having to join the CC.

If you're thinking you'd lean toward LR only without Photoshop, then CC is a bit more expensive... it comes out to $120 per year (you sign up for a year at a time - with penalty if you end early.)

Current pricing has LR5 at $150 to buy... then $80 to upgrade. (5 is on sale right now for $108 at Amazon... but be aware we don't know when LR6 will come out.)

Historically LR upgrades are LESS than once per year... so for me (not a Full Photoshop user) $80 every 18 months or so is cheaper than the CC subscription of $120/12months.

OK thanks. I had the LR5 beta installed at one time before the official release and I did like some things in it. The batch processing is a godsend over the Canon program. Importing things and figuring out where everything is though is a PITA. I wish instead of files in some LR catalog that they would just put the files in your my pictures folder. Maybe you can set it to do that, but it wasn't so easy when I was screwing around with the beta. Maybe that is why I kept using DPP. the photos are all in my pictures and don't change file types or names.

Anyway, will probably try it for the $10 a month, especially since I have a newborn expected any day. Will probably be taking thousands of photos of her and my other kids to appease the woman.

Keep in mind that lightroom has TWO different views of your photos. "Physical" location, what drive/folder the files are actually in, and "Catalogue Location".

I have Lightroom setup to drop imported photos into a date stamped sub-folder of my 'photo drive'. Every photo I have on my system then exists in that location, and is easily backed up.

From there I will configure stuff in collections within lightroom itself. All the photos STAY where they are on the drive. Even if I make virtual copies in lightroom there will still only be that one copy in the main folder along with all the other photos from that date.

I don't like it either, but one also has to look at it from Adobe's viewpoint. One of the primary reasons for going to the cloud was to stop pirating. Using the the product without paying is in the long run at "my expense."

Interesting statement from you, when Adobe themselves did say that the movement to subscription was not because of piracy.
