I have Lightroom 5, and am looking to give the Lightroom CC trial a go. If I don't think it's for me after the month, will all the edits to my library in that month still be there if I open my library in the Lightroom 5 application?
Lightroom installed from the creative cloud is precisely the same program you have been using. There will be no difference in features. After you install it, it will open the catalog you have been using with your standalone Lightroom 5. If you're going to try Lightroom CC just to evaluate the differences, you won't see any. You need to decide whether you want to pay the $9.99/month subscription fee to have both Lightroom and the latest Photoshop, as well as any updates and upgrades that come along.
Thanks for this. I'm interested to try the mobile apps. So I'll sign up and see what it's all about.
