I am purchasing a new Mac, but sending in my old one first (to get an apple discount). I want to be able to access Lightroom on the new computer. Is it just a matter of signing into my adobe creative cloud on the new one? Or is there more to it?
You should Sign Out on the old one before you wipe the drive and send it in.
Then Yes just install the CC desktop app, Sign In and install your CC programs.
