I have been on the fence on buying full-up Photoshop (been using PSE since version 6) then saw where Adobe was offering a limited time deal on Creative Cloud for Photographers and decided to go for it.
Just finished installing CS6 on my MacBook Pro and starting to read Missing Manual for Photoshop.

Here is a link to an article about Adobe's offer
Adobe introduces cheaper Creative Cloud with Photoshop + Lightroom: Digital Photography Review

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

I think, "What have I got myself into?!!"

Seriously, I knew going in (which is why I was on the fence so long) that Photoshop meant a huge time investment. But, one of my goals in retirement is to learn to do the things a powerful package like this can do.
In Arkansas you can attend public university at no cost after age 60, and the local colleges offer Photoshop and Digital Graphics classes. Without that option I would have stayed with PSE.

I might add this once my 3 months CC for all the Apps is over, but in the article, they stipultae that is "Only a introductory offer" so what does that mean ?? And what do you pay after the offer expires.

Being in CC is good with bridges to Behance and Kuler for all your works, update are a many, but unless your a Enterprise and you can right off $50+/Month as a Tax right off, this just isn't aimed at the hobbyist or amateur

That's great Mike. They do the same here at several of our local community colleges and senior citizen centers. If you have the time after retirement, definitely take advantage of all you can. Just be careful when you're attending those Kung Fu and Tai Chi classes!

The offer ITSELF is only good until the end of the year, and as cloud-activated software goes its a pretty good one: frankly it's what Adobe SHOULD be charging for PS in the first place IMO, plus you get Lightroom as well, some 20GB of cloud storage and so forth.

Assuming you take up the offer, I would presume that the price is good for up to a year, after which you'll be charged the usual rate -- but Adobe haven't made that crystal clear yet.

There are no promises (not that they would be worth much) but Adobe states in their FAQ that they have no intention of raising the price beyond the initial $9.99 a month.

My attitude is if they renege I still have CS6 stand-alone which should do me for some time.

EDIT: Thanks, Charlie. But at this stage in my life I would be more interested in a Chinese cooking class than in Martial Arts.

Most of the full blown Adobe apps can have quite a learning curve...but I guess that's why they are so powerful & used by many professionals.

Good luck with the class if you decide to take it!

Haven't signed up for CC yet. Bought CS6 from Amazon and installed it yesterday. The $9.99 Photographer CC package won't be available for sign up till later this month.

Thanks.

Taking a class will probably have to wait on retirement, unless I can find one offered at night.

Hi RavingMac,
I had PS7 for PC. When I switched to Mac, I bought PS CS6 for that platform. I bought the stand alone program, as I simply did not want to pay for a subscription just so I could get future updates. Also with the CC subscription, if you default on staying with program, you can still open photos or work you've done, but can no longer work on them, as your program is disabled. Of course you can always start your subscription again. I think that I can live with CS6 and no future updates. I use Photoshop for my own professional Photography business, but not in a corporate setting, so probably good enough for my needs.
