Not a good sign that Lightroom might be missing another competitor(Apple killed of its Aperture) which might mean Adobe will slack off even more and be more appaling.

In my opinion, Adobe is like Canon in that it simply moves at its own pace, mindful of the competition, but just doing its own thing both in pricing and featureset.

Personally, I have been happy with Adobe's recent direction and their Lightroom product.  The $10/month PS/LR is a deal and a half for me as I have a few PCs that I want to use both on.

DxO PhotoLab is a unique product and quite different from LR or PS. Its PRIME noise reduction beats every other noise reduction software. I use it as my RAW converter and then use PS for advanced processing. It squeezes more detail out of my images than DPP and Adobe can, and in addition enabling me to use my 5DSR at iso6400 and pushing a few more ev.

Why?  Customers potentially losing their choices.  Employees potentially losing their jobs.  Sounds good to you, does it?

You can only install on two pc's, unless you purchase more than one subscription.  I have 5 pc's that I'd like to install it on, because I occasionally might use it on a different one, but I am limited to two.  The mobile version is not limited.

yes. Stupid company. Phony all the way. From start to end. Deserves to go under. Employees ? Their problem. They decided to work for a whacko company ... I did not force them. Those who are any good will find new jobs, the others ... their problem. lol

YES, i am 100% callous vs. companies like flickr. F' them all! I loved my ass off when Kodak went down. When Nokia went down. Will rejoice when Adobe finally swims goes belly-up. And maybe I will even live to see stupid Canon go down. Will love laugh very hard then.

You can actually install it on as many PCs as you want, but only 2 can be activated at once.  It asks you which one you want to deactivate in a process that's painless if you have Internet, when you want to run it on the third (or sixth, or whatever). 

It works really well for my home situation, where I don't need InDesign/Illustrator/etc. because mostly, it's 1 desktop I always use, and 5 or so laptops/tablets that very infrequently run Lightroom or PS on.  For example, my Pixma is in a different room, and I just take my laptop there to print when I want to do that, but otherwise, I never run LR on my SB.  I have LR/PS on 3 different Surface Pro's (SP3, 4, and current), but since they're so similar, I will usually just grab whatever is close and stuff it in my bag without wondering "Does this have Photoshop".  Not like I usually use it anyways, but I want it there in case.

I do wish that you could mix and match the individual programs (Have Photoshop loaded on two PCs and then have InDesign or Dreamweaver on a third PC.) Unfortunately, it's all or nothing on each PC. Not a big deal, but more of a minor quibble.

Agreed.  My dislike for DXO is well enough known, but a company having financial troubles is good for almost no one.

That’s not a terribly winsome approach - I hope you realize why your more cogent less offensive arguments are not generally well received...  ::)

Thanks for the info.

I had tried in the past, but apparently did not go far enough.  My computers are in different buildings, so I did not want to go back and forth.

I found this explanation, so I may try it next time I want to use a additional machine like my laptop for travel.

Another key benefit with Creative Cloud is that it does not use serial numbers like CS did – instead, you activate CC by logging in with your Adobe ID, thereby providing the ability to more flexibly manage your usage.  So if you install the CC apps onto a third computer, it will ask you if you want to automati­cally deactivate the other two…  Just hit “Continue” at the Maximum Activations Exceeded box, and it will handle activation of your new system and deactivation of the others for you.  Afterwards, you can reactivate again on one additional machine.  This can be useful if you’re moving around between computers, or if one of your earlier systems crashed, or if the software is otherwise inaccessible.
