AzPicLady Loc: Behind the camera!
 
I have a laptop that I used extensively as a WIN 8. It developed some problems and my guru updated it to WIN 10. Ever since then, the cursor never worked right, whether from an external mouse or internal controls. It made the laptop really hard to use. So I didn't. I've worked on it some and it's better, but still annoying.

It occurred to me that since my monthly income went up a little bit that I might be able to afford the subscription LR and PS. I could put it on the laptop and have it to take to workshops with me. So yesterday I went to their website thinking to set that up. I've always heard that it was $9.95 and that you got both LR and PS (I do use both). Imagine my surprise when I saw it was $19.95! Is that right? Since it was on their website, I have to assume it is, but are all of you paying $20 each month for your programs?

I won't subscribe to most software. (Save Norton and Office 365 (my wife needed it for work))
I have two photo editors that I bought one time licenses for, Elements 2022 and Photo Impact Pro (which was YEARS before Elements). DPP <free> from Canon is my primary editor.

For my editing I don't need grandiose latest and greatest editors.

You have to look for the Photographer's Package. It's kind of hidden, but the $9.95 package is still available. Once loaded, you will occasionally get prompts to load additional programs. Be careful with those. Some are just activating included programs, others are extra. If you pay a year at a time, it ends up being a little less expensive.

Well, I don't really, either. But it occurred to me that perhaps I should join the 20th century!

You signed up for the wrong plan. Contact Adobe and change to the $9.95 Photographers Plan and have your payment applied to the new / lower subscription.

I didn't see that. Could you give me a hint where to look for it? All I saw was for individuals, teachers/ students and teams.

Thanks. I'll try that.

Before spending money on software, you need to look at the hardware. You need at least 16 GB of memory. Adobe says 8GB, but that runs extremely slow. You need at least a 250 GB hard drive with space to hold your LR catalog. You don't need it, but having a graphics card on the laptop is best so LR and PS can use it.

They sometimes move it around. I'd call as Paul suggests, especially if you have already signed up.

You will find that the monthly plan Paul suggested is well worth the cost. Plus, it is fun to be able to tweak your photos to bring out the best. Your R3 deserves it.

If you were using your laptop with Windows 8, I’m guessing it’s fairly old by today’s standards. Could be it’s underpowered for Photoshop/Lightroom.
Hopefully your laptop has at least 16GB of memory and a dedicated graphics card as opposed to one on the motherboard.
If you’re experiencing problems running these new programs, it could be the possible underpowered nature of your laptop.

Or maybe the 21st century?

Is this the "Photographer's Plan" mentioned?

Kathy, several excellent points were made in this thread about required hardware!

Not sure it will work with win 10, and/or if your laptop is fairly old.

I'll check on the memory. I put all my pics on externals, so I'm not too worried about interna l memory. I'll ask about thr graphics card. Thank you.

I'm still in the investigation stage. Thx.
