Thank you, Robert, now I can "budget" for it.

According to a customer service rep at Adobe last night: If you have Photoshop CS3, 4, 5, 5.5, or 6 that you bought for full price (i.e. not the student price) you can sign up until December 31 for $9.99/month and this price will not change. Anyone can sign up by December 2 for $9.99/month for the first year and then will be renewed at whatever the price is at that time.

I'm bummed because I bought Photoshop CS3 at full price but sold it when I bought the student version of Creative Suite 3. Now I am not eligible for the perpetual price. Not thrilled with Adobe, and it had been my favorite software company.

Also, I asked about plug-ins and was assured they would still work. And yes, you can install it on two computers.

Edit to add this is the price in the US. There is a chart with other countries listed on Adobe's website.

I just got a message from Photoshop (via Facebook). It says "$9.99 is the normal price, not a first year promo. The price won't go up after a year. It may go up by a nominal amount sometime in the future to account for inflation." Anyone can get this deal until December 2. Guess I will trust this and sign up.

Bear...you will be quite proud of me...I bit the bullet...just signed up and will be bumping all around now for awhile...

Does the Bridge come with the $9.99???? I'm not sure if it does or not. It comes up on my "menu" to install....but I don't want to get charged extra for choosing it.

No, it's part of it. Some people don't use Bridge in their workflows, so they don't install it. If your workflow runs from LR through PS, you don't need bridge for anything. If you want to be able to process RAW directly into PS, you use bridge.

In the past I've been using Lr and moving to Elements...so I won't use Lr anymore...Br would be the product of choice...

BTW...if you guys don't hear from me for awhile...I'm in school...lol

Why stop using LR? It's part of your subscription and you're used to it. It serves a very useful cataloguing function and has many other benefits. Use LR to sort, preview, batch process, whatever; then go to PS for the persnickety processing. The only reason I don't do that is because I've been doing it the other way for over 10 years, it's second nature. Now that LR is part of my package, I may just have to learn it and give it a whirl.

Because I don't know Br at all...what advantage does it have over Lr...I love how Lr does the RAW conversions...the healing/cloning tool is amazing.

This is going in circles: I'm telling you, DO use LR. You had said to me, you'd stop LR and use BR. BR has no advantage over LR: they use the same processing engine, the same algorithms, and basically the same interface. Bridge began as Adobe's solution to previewing images and processing RAW to a form PS could accept. LR is a more professional way of doing that. PLus, of course, LR does all sorts of processing tricks on its own, sometimes you don't even NEED PS. BR can't do that. If you're comfortable with LR and its libraries, by all means continue.

Me, I can't get comfortable with the libraries, the organizational structure. Bridge feels easier to me. But I'm gonna give LR a try, since I have it now anyway.

My only advice is to just go buy Capture One Pro... ;) .. Ok, that's probably not the best advice I've ever given, especially if you really do already own LightRoom, but for me, it just kills LR, since I love to shoot at high ISOs, push shadows/highlights, and pixel peep...

..

Listen to the Bear. LightRoom is a familiar friend.. :) That's a good thing.

Well now all I have to do is get everything loaded and squared away...

Ok, I tried to find the thread like this one that had a link for a youtube on how to load my Nik & Topaz software (Neat Image too) But I can't find it now.

Doesn't Neat Image work in PsCC? I can't seem to get that plug-in to work...

I donno. Both Nik's and Topaz's denoisers work though, and they're both better than Neat Image as far as I'm concerned...

got it all loaded...Neat Image too. Had to download the 64 bit software.

I rarely use the Neat Image...but once in awhile I do. Since I have/had it I'm just glad I didn't loose it.

Going through the tutorials now...just finished the basics...no wonder ya'll have all your ribbons...and I'll say it, just for you Robert (wink)...Ps CS/6 leaves PsE in the dust. I'll probably never look back...lol

Since my Nik Color Efex Pro came with my Wacom tablet, I have not been able to figure out how to download it again so it will connect with Photoshop CC. Took a while to figure out how to get Topaz connected. Like most things, it is simple if you know what you are doing! I've had some problems with Photoshop freezing. Also, trying to learn how to use catalogs in LR. I was thinking about buying LR before I opted for CC, mostly for noise reduction and organization.

LR is INCLUDED in the CC package for photographers...

Elements has the "Golden Ratio" Crop tool but CS/6 doesn't???

Sure it does. When the crop tool is selected, look for the "View:" drop-down list on the bar just below the main menu bar.

Does anyone know if buying the bundle it can be installed on both a Mac and a desktop PC?

still can't find it....I selected the crop tool and on the very top line I see "View" but can't see Golden Ratio there...or is it called something else...or do I have to install it? In Elements in some of the filters I had to install various ones like "puzzle" for instance???

It's not on the very top line. It's on the menu bar right below the main menu toolbar.

Here's a quick screen capture from mine.
