Oh, I'm not saying it is the right choice for everyone. It was the right choice for me though. The additional features it provides made it well worth it in my case.

Enjoy all the new features.
Cheers, Murray
It was more like a monster boost in features Murray!

I did read the fine print and realize that it will go up to $20. As long as it don't climb much from that, I'll still be good.

Just got to love how the marketers dangle these sweets in your face for only 10$ a month for the first year. Just think if they were to think more outside the box and offer it for 10$ without any time restrictions.(!) Wow!..... hold on........ someone pinch me..... this is the reality of the game! Not going to happen! Just think how many they will loose after the first year is up, and how many more would jump on board with making it even sweeter.

As you can probably guess marketers aren't my favorite people !

Hope you enjoy!

Hey, I wasn't trying to contradict it being right for you, just throwing in a different perspective. Sounds like you'll get a lot of use out of it. Enjoy.

I understand how you feel about 'em. I'm not a big fan of everything going to subscriptions (Books, Movies, Apps...). Their business is ultimately about the $$$.

I am pleasantly surprised at how much I'm liking PS CC though.

No worries.
I read it as you intended it.

I wasn't trying to insinuate anything as well! Just adding some more points to an already interesting post. Lets face it Adobe has made an already great hobby that much more fun with adding the ability to manipulate our photos. It adds creativity with thought provoking tools of all types.Who cares where or how you go about doing it as long as you are doing it! "It" being testing, learning, applying or what ever you chose to add to your creation.

Photoshop plan and simply is an extension of what you can and want to do.

I refuse to rent software for the rest of my life!

I'm only using Photoshop because I'm forced to use a Mac, but I'll probably load Windows onto the Mac and go back to using the superior Corel PhotoPaint!

I was using CS4 also. I downloaded CS6 then I had both on my hard drive. My plug-in worked with 6 without me doing anything.

I'm now on CC for the updates with my cloud turned OFF. You don't have to use the cloud. I can live with $10 a month and Adobe is reconsidering the whole arrangement. If you have CS4 the update works and all of my plugins work. The difference from CS4 or 5 is quite impressive. LR5 is nice IF you don't do landscapes, but their "content aware brush is a disaster. Not at all like the one in PS which is a joy to use.

Tom, I think you made the right choice in view of your circumstances. In my case, I upgraded to CS6 when it was made available and to LR4. For me to join CC seems like I would be paying for CS6 all over again so I have chosen to sit on the sidelines. The half price fee for the PS-CC would still cost me $120 for the first year and $240 next year. Still seems like Adobe is out to gouge its photographer clients but perhaps not so much for those not already upgraded to CS6. You have avoided a couple of upgrade fees by going directly from CS4 to CC and you would be paying the same amount that I would have to pay. Go figure!

I'm not a big Apple fan either, but I spent far too much time learning Photoshop to change now.

So far, most of my plug-ins are working fine with CC too.

What advantages are there to having the cloud turned off?
How do you turn it off?

I know I should get around to buying Lightroom too, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Too many other things have been calling for my money.

I can see your point too. It may be a good while before there are enough changes to CC before it would be a wise upgrade for you.

I think they felt they had to use a bigger carrot to lure us folks that are using older versions of CS in.

So far, I'm really happy with my decision to upgrade to the CC version from my old CS4.

I like a lot of the new features that it has. Getting the hang of the differences in ACR, Bridge, and PS CC is taking a bit to get used to though. A lot of things are done differently!
