I'm a no. I use LR5 almost daily, and ps5 only occasionally. I also use onOne Perfect Photo Suite; and it seems to surpass cs5 for my purposes much of the time. It offers layers, masking, re-sizing, and so on and I suspect I might use it more often once I become more comfortable with it, but truth be told I find most of the editing I need to do is possible within LR5. I've used LR since it was introduced and have come to appreciate it more and more with each new version. I've owned ps 2, 3, and, currently 5. Layers are what I most find myself using in ps; which is now available in the aforementioned onOne software. I did consider abandoning my reservations and giving cc a try, but the idea that I would no longer be able to use a software once I stopped "renting" it is still a big hurdle for me. As I said, I am still using ps-cs5. I import ALL images through LR, and if I decide to use ps to work on an image I can export it as a tiff or psd for use in ps.
