You can start the Photography CC plan for $9.95. If you terminate the plan within the first 30-days the $9.95 is fully refundable. See Cancellation below:
Each month during your one year term, we'll bill your credit card the fee stated at the time of purchase plus applicable tax. As soon as you've successfully completed this sign-up process and your payment is confirmed, your membership will begin.
The price is valid for a full 12 months. After that, we'll renew your contract automatically unless you cancel. The price is subject to change, but we will always notify you beforehand.
We'd hate to see you go, but if you cancel within the first 30 days, we'll give you a full refund. Otherwise, you'll be billed 50% of your remaining contract obligation. If you ever need to cancel, just contact Customer Support.
I want to trial it first to see if it's better. Plus I get a month free with trial.
Adobe doesnt seem to care the same way apple does... I guess the results show.
What version of LR did you trial and was it a standalone trial? If you never trialed the CC version of LR5 you should be able to with LR CC. Try uninstalling your current LR 5 trial application since it doesn't work anyway! It will not remove your current LR 5 catalog and Preferences, etc.
Go to this link and click on 'Download' in the upper right-hand corner.
It will ask to install the Creative Cloud (UTI Handler) if not already installed:
I am an Aperture user and I wanted to try lightroom. The version 5 was a slow piece of junk compared to aperture so i didnt use it much. Lightroom CC promises a lot more speed so i wanted to try it.
Some of the speed problems you were having may have been fixable. Did you post the issues you were having on this forum? LR6/CC uses GPU acceleration for some features, so it may or may not resolve your previous speed issues. What exactly was slow? Please provide detailed information including your system, monitor and camera model image file types tested (CR2, NEF, JPEG, etc).
I trialed Lightroom5 in the past and when I try to trial Lightroom CC it crashes instantly. not really sure if that is license issues. Lightroom mobile was trialed when it first came out, not it tells me my trial has expired.
I no longer have Lightroom 5 installed. Creative cloud is installed, i tried signing in and out.
I didnt post or read about speed issues, though I have heard others complain about speed and polish compared to Aperture. I am running a 5k imac with a 4ghz i7 and m295x video card. Most my files are RAWs from a 5dIII and JPEGs from a Fuji X-T1.
How did you install LR CC? What do you see in the Creative Cloud app under 'New Versions,' 'Installed Apps,' and 'Find New apps?'
