I don't know what to order. I want PS for photo editing and some composting. I don't do any website work or sharing yet. I have been using elements for a few years and also have Lightroom 5 on my desktop. I don't want to spend $1000s for a bunch of stuff I don't use. Any advice on what to buy?
Well, there is a whole world of free or affordable software out there like GIMP, PDPaint and similar. Otherwise if you want to stick with Adobe stuff signing up for the CC photography program would be the most cost-efficient way...
What do you want to do that you cannot already do with Elements and Lightroom 5?
