Moving My Adobe Photoshop to the Cloud

Adobe Creative Cloud

Besides the thousands of pictures that I take of the kids I also take tons of pictures of food, groceries and shopping excursions for this blog. I don’t claim to be the best photographer but I’m constantly trying to get better and for years I’ve used Adobe Photoshop to edit my photos and help make them even better. Being a longtime Photoshop fan I have to admit that I was a little nervous about switching from Creative Suite, where I get to hold onto the CDs to reinstall the software if needed, to the Creative Cloud where you get an annual subscription to cloud based software.

I was anxious to give the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan a try so I first tested it out with the above image from my Make Your Own Root Beer Sugar Scrub post. The image needed a little bit of color adjustment before I added layers for the wording and the opaque bar beneath them. Then of course I added the watermark for the site and the image was ready to be posted.

Although I kept searching for differences in functionality I really couldn’t find any. The subscription version of the software works just like my previous version did except that it has the added benefits of being able to organize, edit and share my photos across my desktop, mobile devices and the web.

I use both a laptop and a desktop computer and the new Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan, which includes both Photoshop CC and Lightroom, makes it easy to access and work on my projects from wherever I am and whichever computer I’m using. The pure convenience of the Creative Cloud has sold me on it, but I’m also thrilled to have a more affordable option for my favorite Photoshop photo editing software.
