For now, Lightroom 6 remains available for purchase through the online retailers listed below, but when stocks run out, only the subscription versions will be available.

With a head injury, having everything in one small work space to toggle back and forth between is confusing for me now unfortunately. I used to have them in My Adobe Account right there for me to redownload if needed along with their Serial Numbers and all the information regarding my purchase history. The only other issue I see is about affordability with large monitors. If you cancel within 14 days of your initial order, you'll be fully refunded. Any ideas on how I can keep running the 64 bit version? Alternatives outside Adobe Photo editing software has matured greatly since the days when Photoshop was the clear standout.
Are you tempted to come back, with all these new features? I would suggest asking for a transcript of the support chat and mentioning chargeback if they try to evade helping you. I also used a few photos from Adobe Stock, without realising this would also create another subscription with a locked-in contract. Personally, I store very few of my files using Creative Cloud storage. If you cancel within 14 days of your order, you'll be fully refunded.

If a new version of the Adobe suite is released you don't have to go and shell out another thousand dollar investment you continue paying your monthly fee and apply the upgrade. Over a three-year period, Photoshop -- a new version and an update -- is more expensive than a subscription to Photoshop Creative Cloud. I was working mostly with Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator. The Elements line Years ago, hobbyists and non-professionals used to buy the full version of Photoshop because it was one of the few applications that could do a good job of editing images.

Run the program and paste your generated key. Adobe is moving towards subscription-based licensing, just as Microsoft is doing with Office 2013. I can run Sierra which would be ideal for some of the now discontinued applications, sans the Adobe suite.
