Take Your Best Shot! Adobe Creative Cloud Photo Editing – Review

best buy photo plan

“Take your best shot and make it even better with the Creative Cloud Photography plan.”

Because of the nature of what I do, photographs are important. Unfortunately, until now I was forced to take my photos and wait until I was able to get to my computer to work on them for publication. Adobe Creative Cloud gives you the world’s best creative tools. Join now and get instant access to powerful desktop apps like Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and InDesign CC. Take your ideas to the next level with new, integrated mobile apps and search millions of Adobe Stock images. Since it’s subscription based, it is always up to date and accessible. Creative Cloud is geared toward the more experienced photographer so I admit that part of it took a bit of study on my part.

If you are a more advanced, active photographer who wants to be able to create and access your vision on any device, anywhere – then, the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography software is for you. Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan is a 1-year subscription available at Best Buy and encompasses Photoshop Creative Cloud and Lightroom Creative Cloud.  This software plan is all about enhanced photo editing and convenience with the multi-screen capabilities provided by the Cloud.

You will have access to all your photos on your local hard drive on your computer through Lightroom for desktop. You can continue to import and organize photos through export, Publish, Print, Web, or Slideshow (Access to the Develop & Map modules, as well as Lightroom for mobile, will no longer be available after your membership ends).

An Internet connection is required the first time you install and license your Creative Cloud app(s), but you can use the app(s) in offline mode with a valid software license. Annual members can use the app for up to 99 days in offline mode. Desktop applications are installed directly on your computer, so you don’t need an ongoing Internet connection to use them. Creative Cloud desktop applications can be downloaded and installed on multiple computers, regardless of operating system. However, activation is limited to two machines per individual associated with the membership. I’ll admit I struggled just a little, not because it’s a difficult process, but because there is so much that can be it was just a little over-whelming. Here’s a great video I found on YouTube that explains so much (I created a video too – but it stinks next to this one!)


  • The Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan features the world’s best photography tools, including Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom desktop, mobile and web at an amazing price.
  • Do serious photography work anywhere with Lightroom mobile and integration with Adobe Photoshop Mix
  • Always stay up to date. Automatically get access to the latest features and product updates.
  • Access an extensive library of video tutorials to get you up to speed quickly and master new skills

Get the world’s best photography tools at one incredible price. Photoshop CC and Lightroom are tightly integrated for a complete photography workflow across your desktop and mobile devices. Create composites in Photoshop Mix on your iPad and refine them on your desktop. Organize and enhance images in Lightroom on your iPad or iPhone. And automatically sync all your changes back to your Lightroom catalog.

This is a great software at an affordable price. Lightroom helps you create a professional product and unless you are extremely advanced, with no need to use Photoshop very much. I personally find Photoshop sort of complicated so I have tried to keep most of my edits in Lightroom. I hope to eventually get better using the Photoshop portion and it’s nice to know that it’s there, all ready for me.

Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan is a 1-year subscription available at Best Buy (encompassing Photoshop Creative Cloud and Lightroom Creative Cloud) and costs $199 for a one year subscription and if you use photos on a regular basis – well worth every penny! I admit it is best for more advanced, active photographers who want to be able to create and access their vision on any device, anywhere.

Why not perfect your Photography? From everyday edits to total transformations, the Creative Cloud plan lets you retouch and manipulate images in just about any way you can imagine. Organize, Edit & Share images from Anywhere: On your computer, on the web, on your iPad and on your iPhone or Android device. And when you make an editor flag a favorite in one place, it’s automatically updated everywhere else through Adobe CreativeSync technology. Showcase your Work: Organize images in web galleries or share them on your favorite social sites. Then use the Adobe Slate mobile app to craft visual stories and animated videos and the Adobe Voice mobile app to add your own voice for narration.
