I wish to continue to process my picts. in the usual way without sending them to a "cloud" & I don't wish to lose them either. I don't remember signing up for Photoshop.com, and if I didn't, what are the repercussions? Will I still be able to buy upgrades of Photoshop Elements in the future or must I join P. com? If I "opt out" will I still be able to process my picts. in the usual manner?
The change is that Photoshop.com sharing and storage (in the cloud) is moving to Revel (in the cloud).
If you use Elements or Photoshop or any other program to process your photos and save them to your computer, and don't save them to the cloud on Photoshop.com, then you may continue with no change.
