    Well, after looking at other softwares I decided that LR and PS will suit my needs for the moment. I like that I can jump ship. I'm not committed to a stand alone and have the ability to have ready to use updates with all the latest Adobe decides to throw at this. I kind of like having something that is constantly evolving and up to date.

    I know the subscription based software is a bit of a downer but it's the way of the future. After a couple days of reading and weighing my options this seems to be the way to go for now. IMG_0125.JPG

    I think you have to specifically download Photoshop, while Lightroom is the thing it automatically directs you to.

    Oh ok. I assumed it would trigger the package I bought. I was freaking out thinking the $10 sub was just for Lightroom. I was gonna lose my poo LOL.

    Downloading PS cc. Hope I don't incur more charges. As it says get LR and PS for just $9.99

    Another question. In the creative cloud section with all the downloads. I notice some say "try" which is a trial. And some say download. Do I need the other apps? Bridge, tool kit etc.

    I don't think I've downloaded any of them. "Try" are the ones that will give you a one-month free trial before trying to get you to upgrade to $50/month for all of the Adobe programs. "Download" means that it's included with your current subscription and/or free software, I believe.

    Both LR and PS should show up in your Adobe Cloud. Install Adobe Cloud, click the apps tab and you should see all the software. Just click the install next to it.

    The other good thing about the clound is I can i

    I use Bridge a lot.

    I mentioned that Camera Raw and LR's Develop module were the same software - Adobe Camera Raw (ACR).
    Unlike with Lr I can open 1 screen of ACR with Bridge and I can open a second screen with Photoshop.
    Bridge also has some batch processing options Lr does not have, and Bridge can open way more file types than Lr can.
    Bridge is there for many other Adobe applications, not just Photoshop.

    My brain hurts. I've spent the last 3 hours watching YouTube videos on the basics of PS and I don't get it LOL. Some people can do cool stuff with it! But they don't really talk about the process. More of a show off video. Even the tutorials demonstrate is of someone has previous knowledge of the buttons and some of the interface. Simple things like exporting files, preferences and all the different settings and adjustments is enough to make my head spin. It's going to take a lot of time for me to get to know this and I'm sure I'll be posting many posts .

    I'm fairly comfortable with LR and it's quite easy to use for me now. PS on the other will be a huge learning curve.

    Thanks to everyone who posted!!!
