I must say that I like Photoshop CS6 as well but would not pay a monthly fee to use it. OnOne Software have launched photosuite 7.1 which has layers as well and a combination of photography specific modules. Suite 7.5 is due this month with even better enhancements. Their spot healing brush and blending modes surpasses Photoshop spot healing and content aware and blending technology. The more familiar I become with OnOne the less I become reliant on CS6. Their software is brilliant the only thing I'm not sure about is how effective it is for professionals working with large numbers of images. But for me it works very well. Topaz labs has a similar stand alone product with layers which incorporates all their modules or programs for developing images. Also a great option. So things are moving and Adobe have created a huge opportunity for an innovative software company to perfect a photography specific program and capture a global market.

Adobe has stated that they will issue a perpetual license for LR5. The issue is, at what point will they decide that they want us to belly up to the Adobe feed trough and pay monthly to use Lightroom also? I agree that LR is a nice product, but I'm not willing to continue to commit my time to a product that might in the near future leave me in the dust.

This is a big step forward for all photo programs developers, and probably, in the future, a big advantage for all photographers. With Adobe going in the dust - hmm, Cloud, there will be a lot of room for competition! Good job Adobe. We will remember you.

Unbelievable!!! I am a Photographer, and only use LR3 and PS 7, and i'm good with those. I have used the CS5, and Love the Content Aware feature and would like to try the new Anti-Shake feature (not sure what version it will be on yet) Though I sometimes use GIMP to correct minor flaws in my photos, I refuse to get on board with another MRC (monthly recurring charge) company. The only way, and I mean THE ONLY WAY they will get away with this is if people submit to their demand. I for one, will Not be a part of this.
