NO, we have PAID for our Adobe products. We don't have to LEAVE, we have every RIGHT to DEMAND proper and decent products and service from our software supplier Adobe. Unfortunately they seem neither able nor willing to get their act together with LR.
Yep..once they lock you into the "rental" mode...they don't need to care.
They have your money and have your work hostage....so, you just keep paying and live with it.
Welcome to the world of rental software.
Not really, you choose to take advantage of the rental model or you buy other software, or in the case of LR you buy the stand alone perpetual license for $149 (at most).
True, you have that option...yet! I doubt it will be around for much longer...
I really don't see why I should pay more PER YEAR for the rental license, than I paid for the upgrade of the standalone version.
Point is, the rather incremental upgrades they have done so far, are really not worth the perpetual costs (at least to me), so there is no "advantage" of the rental model to me....
But, each to his own.
The only reason to upgrade was that LR5 did not support my new camera body.
