    Still perfer local software to CC

    I have been a long-time user of Lightroom and Photoshop Elements. Over 90% of my post-processing is done in Lightroom (LR) with occasional calls to Photoshop for doing more elaborate healing, creating layered effects, and merging photos. The following describes my experience moving from this workflow to the Creative Cloud (CC) environment. Pleases note that there two versions of LR in the “Photography Plan”, a local version with full functionality (Lightroom Classic CC [LRCCC]) for the Windows and iOS operating systems and a somewhat less functional, cloud-based version (Lightroom CC [LRCC]) accessible on most mobile and web-enabled platforms. The version of Photoshop provided in the Photography Plan runs locally and can open local and files synched in the CC environment. The first thing I did was import images into the CC environment. This was done by importing local files into Lightroom CC (LRCC) or by opening local files in Photoshop CC (PSCC) and “sharing” them with LRCC. Photos “shared” with LRCC eventually appeared in the synched catalog in Lightroom Classic CC (LRCCC). During navigation to local content in LRCC, I noted that some of the file menus were not optimized for a 4K display. This made folder navigation a challenge. Even with 200 MBps internet speed, synching 43 MB raw files in LRCC took about 30sec/photo. Be prepared to wait a while to upload and synch lots of files. Also keep in mind that virtual copies of photos created and edited in LRCCC are not synched in LRCC or PSCC. This was a real inconvenience when I had created two versions of an image from the same raw file. You can only synch one LRCCC catalog at a time with LRCC. Images imported into LRCCC can be automatically synched with LRCC by adding them to a synched collection. I decided to try the system out on one catalog (A) and later decided to use another (B) by enabling “Synch with Lightroom CC” under my name in the top-left corner of LRCCC. After setting B as my synch catalog, previously synched photos from A began appearing “uninvited” in B. I tried removing them from LRCCC B, but they kept reappearing. Online help suggested that there was no way to remove them from the LRCC catalog without deleting them from the local disk. I copied the raw images to a backup location and deleting them from the LRCC catalog. It turned out that they were not deleted from my local disk after all. The difference between the claimed and actual behavior was unexpected and not in a bad way. After importing a bunch of photos individually into LRCC, I discovered that a collection of photos within the synched catalog in LRCCC can be designated as synched. These photos will synch with LRCC and PSCC without having to import them individually in the CC platforms. However, once synched, a photo remains synched even when it is removed from the synched collection. Deleting images in LRCC is the only way I have found to un-synch them. Having a photo open in the Develop module of LRCCC will prevent changes in LRCC from being applied. Be sure to go to Library module in LRCCC before editing images in LRCC. Changes in LRCC can take a few minutes to appear in LRCCC. LRCC was easy to install on my iPhone and it was nice to be able to edit and synch photos taken with my phone. However, I don’t typically use my phone for any serious photographic projects. I did like that the mobile version does not use cellular data by default. Like LRCC on other platforms, phone-based edits to synched photos take a few minutes to refresh on LRCCC. CC should not be considered as a replacement for local storage and a reliable backup system. It would be very easy to fill the default 20GB of online storage offered with my subscription. You need to be very selective about what you upload to CC and use it only for working copies of images that you want to edit remotely, keeping them there only as long as you need that flexibility. One good outing with my A7R2 can easily generate more photos than the 20GB subscription would accommodate. Plans with 1TG are available for an additional $10/mo and 10TB plans are available. Still, Lightroom 6 and Photoshop Elements 2018 (even with Premier Elements included) are cheaper than the annual subscription price for the 1TB subscription. I am used to using software locally and don’t find much advantage to the CC “solution”. It does get you a full version of Photoshop and I can’t find a way to purchase the full version of Photoshop without going to the subscription service. Call me “old school”, but I prefer to have software installed and running locally. The Photographer package is still good way to get the full versions of LR and PS if Elements is not enough for you.

    Lightroom CC leaves a lot to be desired

    As an amateur photographer, I've been using Lightroom (now called Lightroom Classic) and Photoshop for years. This subscription bundle offers you the latest versions of Photoshop CC, Lightroom CC, and Lightroom Classic CC for a year. I do like the subscription based pricing. I can easily afford $120 a year for the latest version of these products. It's much more economical than spending hundreds of dollars for a perpetual license simply because software is not perpetual. It is in constant need of continuous updates. I can continue paying for the subscription as long as it remains useful to me. Photoshop and Lightroom Classic look to be the same desktop application I'm already used to using on my Mac. I have no complaints regarding Photoshop but renaming Lightoom to "Classic" does not instill any confidence in me that it will be Adobe's focus going forward. Which leads me to the new Lightroom CC (not Classic CC, just LR CC, yes I know it's confusing!) So what about Lightroom CC? From a glance it looks like this is what Adobe wants you to migrate to going forward. Well, first I found out it only supports cloud storage, you cannot use local storage like you can with Classic. I have over 1TB of RAW photos in Adobe's DNG format, and this subscription only comes with 20GB of space. Bummer. Upgrading cloud storage is expensive, and there is no option to store your photos in other cloud service providers such as iCloud or Dropbox. So after I realized I could migrate everything over to Lightroom CC that I synced a few collections from Classic just to see how it works. I then checked the Lightroom CC app on my iPad Pro and sure enough they were there. But...this is something I can already do with Apple Photos. in fact, the more I played with Lightroom CC, the more I tried to figure out what it offers that something like Apple Photos doesn't. Apple's machine learning search is hit or miss, but so was Adobe's Sensei. Apple's Photos is deeply integrated into the OS, Adobe's is not. I honestly could not find much reason to use Lightroom CC except for the integration with Lightroom Classic (my real image catalog application) as I can easily sync photos. I guess if you do pay the storage costs and have your entire library in Lightroom CC you can ditch Classic. However, I found that the new Lightroom is also "Light" on features compared to Classic. For someone like me it would be hard to move over to the new application exclusively until it is on par with the existing application. Overall - subscription is great, the existing desktop applications are great but the addition of the cloud version of Lightroom makes things muddy. I'm not sure how it would fit in my workflow, and having multiple products named Lightroom is confusing. Just keeping things straight while writing this review was confusing, as I'm sure it is for you reading it! I would like to see Adobe do two things to earn a five star review: - merge the cloud and desktop versions of the software into one killer Pro-level application - allow syncing with other cloud services or at least make the costs of CC storage competitive with other cloud services. I would still recommend this others that need Photoshop and Lightroom Classic.

    Having used the Adobe Elements product line for the last few years, I smugly thought I was around an Intermediate Level when it comes to image editing. Then I accepted a Tech Insider Network offer to use and review the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan. Oh my! When I began using Photoshop CC for the first time, I quickly found out that I had barely scratched the surface of photo editing. Photoshop CC is definitely for the pros, but I tried to learn as much as I could anyway. Photoshop CC and its accompanying applications in the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan are very, very powerful and have a lot of help already built into the software. Which I used plenty. However, I was most successful after I began tapping into the abundance of Photoshop tutorials available on the Internet. One tutorial in particular showed me that Photoshop CC was all powerful when it comes to converting a color photograph into grayscale line art. Something I’m asked to do from time-to-time by a porcelain artist in our family. With some photo editing software you can do that conversion with one or two clicks, but you have to accept the preset results. Basically, you get what you get and it’s usually less than great. However, with Photoshop CC you control all aspects of that process until you are happy with the results. The tool I was most impressed with was Photoshop's intelligent and content-aware Spot Healing Brush. That little jewel is the most advanced tool I've ever used for cleaning up and removing unwanted artifacts from scanned images of the 130+ year old 1880s magazines we collect! I’ve also used it to restore some old photographs from the 1800s. Thank you for that tool. I don't mean to gush, but wow is it great. I could go on and on and still never come close to reporting everything available in Photoshop CC. Let's just say I'm impressed, but quite a bit overwhelmed. The only negative I experienced was that Photoshop CC crashed twice in the first couple of days using it on my very capable Win 10 PC. However, in the weeks since, I’ve not experienced a repeat. The Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan is a powerful beast not made for the timid. However, if you're already a somewhat skilled image editor or just a very adventurous soul, you won’t find this software lacking! It's been the gold-standard of photo editing software for years for a reason. I highly recommended because I’m impressed, not because I’m some kind of expert. Me? I plan on renewing in 11 months simply for the content-aware Spot Healing Brush!

    The BEST photo-editing application available

    I've used Adobe's line of editing applications, on & off, since 1997, starting with Photoshop 4. Since then, I've used Photoshop 5, 5.5, CS (aka 8), CS2, CS4 & CS6. Until now, I've never really cared for the CC (Creative Cloud) line, primarily due to its fairly expensive subscription-based format. The original cost was too much for your typical user (yes, I understand that Adobe's primary products are aimed at professionals & advanced intermediate users, while their "Elements" products are aimed at the rest of us). In 2014, Adobe lowered the monthly cost for Photoshop to $9.99/mo, but I was finally getting to rally understand CS6, thus I never made the switch/upgrade until now...and I'm REALLY glad I did. Before I continue, let me briefly touch on the other two components of "Photography Plan" - Lightroom CC, and Lightroom Classic CC. While many are familiar with the name "Lightroom", the new (and improved???) Lightroom CC is NOT the Lightroom you are familiar with. In truth, it's (far) less of being Lightroom, and more of begging a cloud-based group storage mechanism. As such, I'm not using it, as I have no such need ("group" of one). Lightroom Classic CC, on the other hand, is the Lightroom users would be familiar with. I have neither had the opportunity, nor the time, to truly test it out, so I'm refrain from including any details about it in this review. Getting back to Photoshop...in this case, the 2018 "edition" of Photoshop CC...the improvements are incredible. While users of the previous versions of PS CC might only notice minimal-to-moderate improvements, anyone (like myself) still using PS CS (any version) still noticed vast improvements, most notably (new, for 2018) its inclusion of AI functionality. Imagine wanting/needing to remove a person, vehicle, power like, etc, from a photo. With PS CS, the results were writhing from "pretty good", to downright hilarious. With PS CC 2018, "pretty good" is, essentially, the WORST you can expect...in truth, expect to be amazed with what it can accomplish. I could easily write a very lengthy, and extremely detailed, review, as I usually do when it comes to tech hardware...however, in this case, I have a much better idea. For those after familiar with Photoshop (especially PS CS6, or later), upgrading to the latest CC version will be well worth it. As for those who’ve never used Photoshop before (this includes those who have used Photoshop Elements, but not Photoshop), you don't even have to take my words for it, for what I'm about to suggest will seriously speak for itself – download the trial version of Photoshop CC from Adobe’s website (it’s completely free, but will only function for 7 days), and give it a spin. Once you discover the incredible photo editing power of PS CC, nothing else will come close. After reading this…and, for those who need to go the trial route, once you’ve given it a first-hand try…you shouldn’t have to ask, “Would I recommend this?” you’ll already know the answer. Disclaimer: This product was provided free, or at reduced cost, for the purpose of reviewing the product. Nevertheless, the above review, be it positive, negative, or somewhere in-between, is a 100% honest review, and the price paid played absolutely no part in my review.

    Every photographer from new to a seasoned pro needs lightroom! Lightroom is super easy and time efficient when dealing with a large number of RAW files. It does work on JPEGs too but the program’s fullest potential is with editing RAW files from your camera. I’m a professional wedding photographer and trust me when I say Lightroom saves me hours of time editing. Batch editing is where LR shines. If I want to adjust white balance, exposure levels, etc, it’s a matter of dragging some sliders and applying the changes to the photo or photos of your choosing. The features that are introduced to the latest lightroom almost eliminates my need for any photoshop. I use to finish my edits in photoshop when I need to do a healing brush but now its incorporated into LR! Why choose Creative Cloud over buying the software outright? You will always have the latest version! I used Lightroom 3 for the longest time until I was forced to buy lightroom 5 when my new camera’s RAW files were not supported in LR3. With creative cloud, you will always have the latest version. You can also choose to do a traditional install, aka Lightroom Classic, where it will be installed on your computer and function like a standalone copy of lightroom. This version of CC comes with access to the latest photoshop. Very easy to start with lightroom and do your batch edits there. Then fine hone the photos that needs additional work in photoshop. The price to buy both Lightroom and Photoshop separately is staggering! This yearly price is a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of owning photoshop. Here is my process after a long wedding day shoot. Download memory cards full of RAW files via lightroom and converting them to DNG and applying my copyright info into the metadata. Cull the thousand or so photos to a manageable level for edit with the use of flags. Batch edit the photos and convert to JPEGs for client. Finish edit in photoshop if I needed to clone something out. I highly recommend Adobe creative cloud to all photographers new or pro. Lightroom is very fast to learn and master. Photoshop on the other hand requires a bit more time invested to learn.

    This is a great improvement in the Photoshop and Lightroom apps. Of course they'll always try to improve. The new advances to the brush control and with the support of OpenType variable fonts, it makes adding text so much easier without having to search for specifics. And these are just a couple of whats new in 2018. Before thinking about getting this app, make sure your computer can handle it. System requirements macOS -Multicore Intel processor with 64-bit support -macOS version 10.13 (High Sierra), macOS version 10.12 (Sierra), or Mac OS X version -10.11 (El Capitan)2 GB or more of RAM (8 GB recommended) -4 GB or more of available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation -1024 x 768 display (1280x800 recommended) with 16-bit color and 512 MB or more of dedicated VRAM; 2 GB is recommended* -OpenGL 2.0-capable system Windows -Intel® Core 2 or AMD Athlon® 64 processor; 2 GHz or faster processor Microsoft Windows 7 with Service Pack 1, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10 -2 GB or more of RAM (8 GB recommended) -2.6 GB or more of available hard-disk space for 32-bit installation; 3.1 GB or more of available hard-disk space for 64-bit installation; additional free space required during installation (can't install on a volume that uses a case-sensitive file system) -1024 x 768 display (1280x800 recommended) with 16-bit color and 512 MB or more of dedicated VRAM; 2 GB is recommended* -OpenGL 2.0-capable system * 3D features are disabled on 32-bit platforms and on computers having less than 512MB of VRAM. Oil Paint filter and video features are not supported on 32-bit Windows systems. if you're new to Photoshop or Lightroom, there is quite the learning curve. But since there are a ton of "How to" tutorials on youtube and such, this is a very powerful photo editing and creative processing tool. I highly recommend getting this product, IF... you're serious about your photography and/or creating digital works of art. But you should be aware that this is just a subscription (1yr) and this particular product is Adobe's cheapest route. I've been a user of Photoshop and Lightroom for several years now. I have tons of plugins that complement them very nicely. I have learned from a lot through tutorials all over the internet and i'm pretty sure you could as well. Have fun!

    Best value for Photoshop

    Good: Always current version of Photoshop and Lightroom 20 GB of storage Portfolio website Bad: You're leasing the apps I've been subscribed to the Photography plan for a few years now and overall satisfied with what I get. I only use Photoshop for digital art and have never touched Lightroom, but this plan is the best value. The Photoshop only plan costs $20 a month, but comes with more online storage. The good thing about the subscription is that Photoshop is always up to date and you get the newest version as soon as it's available. The downside is that you don't own the app like you used to with the Photoshop CS series. Unfortunately there's no option to plain out buy the current version and keep it, but that's how the software market have shifted to. If you only use it a few times a year then it's best to go with a monthly plan. With this plan, you also get 20 GB of online storage, and a portfolio website. I dabbled a bit with the portfolio creator, and it's like using a website creator with pre-made styles. It's enough to get your work up, but if you want a totally custom site then you'll still need to create your own. As for the individual apps, if you completely new then you should know what you're getting into. Photoshop is the industry standard and can have a high learning curve. This is the full advanced photo editing and paint app, unlike the very basic Photoshop Element. New features are added yearly so it'll take some time to learn. Lightroom is a more streamlined but more limited with its editing features. It's mainly used to organize a large stock of photos and integrated with Photoshop. I've never had any real problem with the software, but on rare occasions you might have issues with membership status that you'll need to contact support to clear it up. Other than that, it's still the same great Photoshop I've used over the decade.

    Quite a while ago, I was introduced to Adobe Photoshop . It was a powerful tool but was complicated and had a steep learning curve. In most cases, it is overkill and not for managing day to day photos. That is where Lightroom comes in. It is a a powerful but simple tool for managing, editing and adjusting images. No long learning curve , just ample features for the casual or professional user. Here is some of key areas to review Interface - clean, elegant design. Everything you need is a click away on the right hand side of the screen. No poking through menus. Simple tools - yes, not as powerful as Photoshop but good for cleaning up photos and preparing them for production. Don’t dismiss the auto function, it really works great. Try out the heal brush, it cleans up a lot. Learning curve - Moderate. The simplicity of the program makes it easier to learn then some of the other photo tools out there. Organization - top notch for organizing photos, albums and assigning information to those photos. Think of it as a powerful cataloging tool. Features - understand what this is for and take advantage of the Adobe cloud for storing. This has all the features you need for photo enhancement and organization. At first, I did not go in understanding what the purpose of the program was. I was expecting some type of image editing program and the name “Lightroom” was lost to me. Now it is self evident ( as I say “duh” to myself.) This program is all about photo enhancement and organization. I have only begun to explore all the features but I quickly navigated around most of the core features. Overall , I like it. Adobe is really the gold standard for a multitude of programs. To be honest , I would not even consider a competitor in the word of images and graphics. There is simply no one close to Adobe. Recommend.

    A Great Value for Pros and Advanced Hobbyists

    • Tech Insider NetworkTech Insider Network

    Anyone serious about photography, either as a hobby or a business, needs to have Photoshop for alterations and Lightroom for organizing photos. In the past, the greatest barrier to owning one or both was the cost and the constant upgrade cycles. Creative Cloud helps on both fronts. Rather than buying the software outright, Adobe has gone to a "software as a service" model where you pay a monthly or annual fee to use the software. You never actually own it, but you do always have the most recent version, eliminating the need to upgrade every year. If you're interested in PS, you already know it's the industry standard for photo retouching and manipulating. The CC version is the full, professional strength version. Along with it you will receive Lightroom, the preeminent photo storage package. Together there's not much you can't do with your favorite photos. Setup is simple. You go online to start an Adobe account (or log into an existing one) and then enter your code. You then have the ability to download PS and LR and install them. Simple! My only complaint is that the included cloud storage for photos is way too small. You, of course, have the option to upgrade for a further fee.

    While the tool shines at the editing side, I almost didn't get there since the loading / organizing skills are so lacking. I started out with tool by loading in a bunch of photos. I had them organized by subfolder. There is no way to say load all photos under this directory tree. I next tried to multi-select multiple subdirectories. While visually it looks like they are selected, it only loads the photos from the first one selected (or was it the last).... It is nice that it detects if an image has been loaded already if you try to load it twice but all the organizing that is done is organizing that you do yourself. Having seen other programs organize my photos with facial recognition so any photo with my kid in it goes into one virtual "folder", I was hoping to see something similar here. There is no such feature. If you only want to use the editing feature, not sure if this is your best option. Google drive is a better alternative for the automatic organizing of photos. If they ever improve the UI, I might consider again, but it is so horrible now....

    Lightroom and photoshop has always been a staple. For hobbyists like me, editing should be simple but effective. That's what lightroom does for me nad photoshop for those little more complicated artwork. I did not realize how convenient it is to use the cloud features-- I have my sony mirrorless for my serious shots and my google pixel that I carry everywhere. The cloud features enable me to sync them both and to be able to choose files from either camera. The ability to share them easily through my mobile phone is also enabled because my nicely edited photos are already in the cloud so I can access them through my pixel and share my mirrorless camera shots. Even though mirrorless cameras now have the ability to share the photos directly, or even lightly edit them, the edits that I can do in my adobe programs are far more advanced, not to mention easier so my shared photos have now a much better quality. Oh, I almost forgot to mention, for beginners, this software guides you throughout the wayp plus has regular updates making it very easy and convenient to use!!

    The Adobe Creative Cloud Photography package is interesting because it gives you the best apps, including Photoshop and Lightroom bundled. These are respectively called Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC. Beyond this you can install versions on your desktop. For photographers, Photoshop and Lightroom are the venerable tools. I don't have to get into detail. Creative Cloud or "CC" is Adobe's offering, which makes their famous applications available through the internet. This makes collaboration easier, ability to store large files on the cloud, and availability on just about any platform (desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone). The only drawback that I see with this Photography Bundle is the 20gb limitation in storage space. For serious photographers 20gb is nearly not enough. Take a look at the plan options: https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html?promoid=6NCS7DGT&mv=other. Overall the Photography Bundle is sweet. Pro photography who live and breathe with Adobe Products will enjoy this bundle!

    Adobe has completely lost touch with anyone below professional. I’m saddened to say this because I’ve been a longtime user and fan. This product has several sophisticated photo tweaking / editing features. I know this because there are many, many, many options. There are few, few, few, ways to learn about them via Adobe. (Yes, there are several sites you can visit to learn, but I shouldn’t HAVE TO!) Additionally, the login is annoying. Remember when you bought a program, installed it, read some instructions and had fun? Not with Adobe. You have to ask your parents every time you want to play. So to be fair, I asked some professional photographer friends. They love the product, despite having to subscribe. If you’re an amateur, I can’t recommend this product.

    Years ago I took a class on photoshop to learn how to edit photos of my boys playing sports. The version I have is several years old now so i thought I would try this newer version as see if there are any differences. Well it appears i was in the kindergarten version of Photoshop and now have graduated to the graduate school of Photoshop. There are so many new editing tools associated with this Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan then I can even imagine. Even just being a weekend photographer I have cleaned up the action shots of my boys playing soccer and basketball to professional levels. No need to buy the photographs from professionals who take pictures during the games, I am one of them now thanks to Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan.

    The Gold Standard for Photo Editing

    If you do any kind of photo editing beyond basic adjustments, then Adobe Lightroom (LR) and Photoshop (PS) are still the gold standards. The Photography Plan subscription gives you regular updates, and when you do the math, it's less expensive than constantly buying new versions, even at upgrade prices. Beyond pricing, Lightroom and Photoshop have a phenomenal user-generated ecosystem of tutorials, videos, blogs, shortcuts, training, etc… unmatched by any other application. Both LR and PS have learning curves but the community support is immensely helpful. Adobe's own tutorials are ok, but it's the vast user base that shines.

    Ive been using these programs for years. Although, I've never been a fan of "the cloud" it is now a necessity. and honestly, for this purpose it is great having these programs as part of their CC lineup where I can access all of my photos on the go. This doesn't have all of Adobe's lineup but it has quite a few of the programs with Photoshop and Lightroom being the top two that I use on a daily. I definitely recommend it if you are serious about your photography. Plus I recommend purchasing through BB to get your points.

    The Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan is the simplest and easiest way to get access to all the programs that you need in order to a be a professional or hobbyist photographer. I use lightroom and photoshop on a daily basis to edit my photos! Lightroom is fast and efficient at sorting and organizing everything and Photoshop is great for adding those extra little touches. The ability to have 20 gb of cloud storage space and the ability to edit on your ipad or any device with Lightroom CC is a nice added bonus and I think the value of the plan itself is very affordable! You can't beat 9.99 a month! Overall I think the adobe plan is 100% worth the money!

    I tried PhotoShop several years ago, and I just couldn't "get it". I've used this product for about 2 weeks now, and I'm just amazed at how simple it is to use. Whenever you upload your pictures to your computer, you can then open LightRoom CC and start editing your pictures. There are prompts that let you know how each little icon is used. My pictures taken with my Nikon camera now look very professional! Love it!

    Adobe never fails to deliver. The Creative Cloud software ensures that you always have the most up-to-date software. This is no exception. It comes with Photoshop and Lightroom. Two of the most powerful software to help you with your photos. I highly recommend this for professional photographers but if you're just someone who likes to edit photos here and there, I'd suggest going for a free alternative.

    I have purchased and used Photoshop and other Adobe products on disk for years. I have switched to the cloud based versions over the past few years to save money. It have worked out great. It is easy to install. Your files and program are available anywhere you need them because they are cloud based. The price is very reasonable. Would highly recommend to any photographer!
