When I was considering photo manipulation software, I looked at Adobe PS - then bought Corel. I like the fact that, although upgrades are available, I don't have to shell out for software every month for the rest of my life. I'd rather buy film!
Good question, I have no idea! I suspect when I signed up for what I thought was a month to month contract, it really was a year's contract, even though I was paying month to month. I didn't read the fine print but after doing a lot of searching from what I understand this is not made clear even in the fine print. Anyhow, doesn't matter, lesson learnt. I am going to buy a single license copy of LR6 if you can even still buy it.
Question for those who've done so: will canceling the month-to-month subscription to Lightroom interfere with my ability to use my LR 6 non-subscription software? I signed up for a few extras last year which I needed in order to complete a couple of college photography courses, and my year is up (so I'm no longer penalized for canceling). I just want to make sure Adobe won't leave behind some kind of monkey wrench that would interfere with my fully-owned version of the software.
