Well I broke down and subscribed to the Adobe Creative Cloud.
Now the reason I decided to go this route is because I am getting a student discount through NYIP so for the time being I only have to pay $21 (includes tax) compared to the $50 most people have to pay for the same service.
Now for my photography I mainly use Lightroom with Nix and onOne software suites to edit images. So I’ve not really gone into depth with using photoshop (or my photoshop elements 11 that I bought). However this will at least let me play around and learn any of the adobe products until I decide to either keep PS, go back to PSE or use something else in the future for a reasonable price.
Thanks for reading
