Well, I went ahead and signed up for the deal, even though I have been very lax with my photography over the last year. I have always used Elements with a few Topaz plugins, but I have felt hamstrung at times reading about the processing techniques you guys use with PS. Plus I have been hankering to try Lightroom. I figure that this may inspire me to pick up my photography. I briefly opened the programs last night and was immediately overwhelmed, then woke up this morning with buyers remorse. But a few beginners tutorials should calm the new program jitters and get me on my way.


did you see the link to Anthony's Lr Tutorials (I think on pg 5)...excellent tutorials, easy to listen to and I've learned quite a bit about Lr and I've had it for years...


Yes, I saw the link so I will be taking a look at them. The first thing I need to figure out is the catalog in Lightroom. The interface seems to be more integrated than the Elements Organizer and Elements, which are somewhat separate. But I only had the program open briefly last night.


I believe he might cover that...not sure...but I did some YouTube searches and found it easily...

On this computer I had a trial version of LR that is now expired. On the install manager LR seems upgraded but when I open the program it asks me a serial number. Any ideas? I don't want to download it again since it's already on my PC (I already have it mounted on my Mac).


I would say create copy of LR settings (most likely you will find in pictures folder on Mac and then uninstall and re-install. It would work. CC installer would take care of that behind the scene so you dont have to worry just click on install under CC manager and rest leave it on the program.

Oh, for SURE the SSD is gonna speed things up. CC may be incrementally faster than CS6, but not so you'd really notice. It's the bells and whistles and upgrades that set it apart. I got an SSD, you know that right?


I am existing CC member and have 500GB SSD on my Mackbook pro and believe me it runs so far not just editing but also the saving file after creating lot of layers. I had tough time before when I had regular HDD and saving was taking hell lot of time. Now speed comparison between CS6 and CC, I do not see much different when it comes it runs on SSD (this I compare with my machine to one of my friend's machine)

Well, I did bite. I've been working with CS4 for a few years now and it was just too tempting. First impressions are that I love the interface on CS6 so much more than 4. I like this version of Bridge better as well and I'm excited to try out LR which I've never used.

I dropped HBO which was $20 a month and got this for $10 so I saved money. That's what I tell the wife anyway so she doesn't hit me with a baseball bat for spending more money on photography stuff.

For anyone that is/does upgrade and needs to learn Lr...I've found Anthony Morganti's tutorials on YouTube to be comprehensive and very easy to listen to. I've had Lr for years but never used it this way...so It's been a good find for me...Find his first episode and start there...lots of little tricks that I didn't know about.

And just for the record the cloning/healing tool in Lr5 is my favorite tool...it's where I do my heavy cloning/healing. With small polishing in Ps...

Well, the CS6 you bought is the basic version, and CC is the "extended" version, meaning (among other things) that it has the "stacking" capability that basic CS6 lacks, meaning you can do cool things with that...


I do have something available under scripts "load files into stack". Isn't that the stacking?

(actually, moving this over to the new thread I just created, because others might have more to say. The problem is this thread doesn't generate as specific info, since people know it's advertising for the price...)

The did this earlier (check the date of the thread) and it was only available for a short time. So who knows if this is the last offer, or if they'll do it again.)

My concern is that I already purchased the stupid cs6 and spent that money! So they're not giving me the updates, but I'd be continuing to pay for most of what I already have. Which seems stupid.

But it sounds like the cc works faster, and I'd almost be willing to pay for that.

Does the offer require you to have purchased an earlier CS license? I've just got Elements.

No, you get the package for $9.99 plus tax.

THAT part's new: before, you had to have a CS3 or newer license to qualify. This particular offer expires tomorrow night.

"Requires an annual commitment with monthly billing. Available for purchase through 9pm PST on March 31, 2014 from Adobe.com only."

So once you buy in, you're in for 12 months with monthly billing.

Thanks for letting me know about this, I just signed up. Good Lord, I feel like I have so much to learn.


Your gonna LOVE IT!!!
