The "decent computer" part might be a sticking point Although, that said, maybe it will be a case of upgrading computer and software together; both were on my "list" of things to try and achieve this year anyway, if I can.

Is LR3 running ACR7, or am I now a generation adrift?

At Adobe Creative Cloud kick off they said that current users of CS3,4, or 5 products can subscribe to the entire suite for $30 a month. That's PS (extended), LR, Premiere, and .......

So now Adobe will own my soul

I'm not too mad, I was planning on having to pay for edge/muse monthly so for ~double that I'll get the full suite and the cloud. Plus this gives me even more of an excuse to finally get a tablet!

Also I know this is a photo forum but does anyone know of videos showing more of the web tools? Most CS6 videos I'm finding are photo/video related.

So I have a question, and if it seems rudimentary, I apologize in advance.

If the price is a hurdle for the latest and greatest from Adobe, why not use an education verification to get it in a much more appealing price? My daughter is a college student, and she also uses it for school, so we got the CS5 package for 189.00. I believe we paid about 89.00 for LR3. Everyone knows someone who has a college student, so why not take advantage of the pricing they offer for students/teachers?

Interestingly, our government has announced an investigation into predatory pricing practices by international software companies, mainly Adobe and Symantec. Since Adobe has been the worst offender by far (routinely charging 80% and higher in Australia), they're the first target. Their response has been to drop the price premium in Australia to 'only' 30% - 40%. I'll keep my fingers crossed that they soon start treating their Australian customers fairly by charging them the same as everyone else for the same downloaded product.

Looks like Adobe Cloud has slipped to May 11, at least that's what my order says. It used to say May 8. We'll see tomorrow.

Downloaded the CS6 upgrade (was on CS4) and installed it on my two systems. The installs went smoothly but I haven't had time to play with CS6 yet.

Anyone with Cloud have any updates? How is it working for them.. any downsides?

I have CS5 Master Suite and considering Cloud. For the most part because of the expense since I didn't jump on CS5.5. They want to charge me over like $1100 or something to go to CS6 Master Suite! Yeah I can tell it is a better deal, but I guess I am really dumbfounded at why is it so much cheaper? I don't get DVD's when I've upgraded before. ...so it is almost the same from that standpoint. I guess I am a skeptic... what is the catch!!?? ;)

A few other questions if anyone can help. Does the Cloud stuff pull over your info like from Dreamweaver i.e the site manager info? ...but maybe that would be better for a nice chat session with Adobe. lol

One thing that sorta is cool, but sucks is I already purchased LR 4.0 and I guess Cloud CS6 comes with LR 4.0. ARRRRGH!!!

Thanks!

I'm pretty new to PP and I don't think I've used the CS5 enough.. mainly due to the fact that I've been doing almost everything in LR.

I'm using creative cloud. For apps like photoshop or premiere it's really not any different than buying the products outright. Once you subscription is active you go to a web page and pick the products you want and they are installed locally.

Assuming you are using a few of the products and you typically upgrade when a new version comes out then the creative cloud is less expensive.

Also on the last update Adobe said that some of the features that were added would not be added to the stand alone versions.

Cool! Thanks so much for that!

I use most of the entire Adobe Master Suite as I am usually into many different mixed media projects. Even Premier and After Effects! I just couldn't believe it could be that much cheaper. Glad to hear it is really not any different!!

I really appreciate your input!

I subscribed to the cloud service as soon as Lr4 was added (was running on LR3 and PS Elements)... thanks to the cloud, the full suite of up to date software is available to me and I couldn't be happier! I'm now learning about Illustrator too!

That is cool! They have a ton of awesome products for sure. I have been wonderfully blessed having the Master Suite for so long. Having a shot at it all cheaper just stuns me and keep thinking "ok.. what is the catch?!"

...however as I already bought LR4 since it was always separate, I am more happy long run for the next version rather than the current one. lol

Really appreciate your comments!! :)
