Can I get just Photoshop on the monthly deal

Recommended Posts

How do I just obtain the Photoshop download on the monthly deal?  When I go to the Adobe site all I can see available is the complete package deal at over £20 p.m.

 

I guess I'm looking in the wrong place but if anyone can confirm I can just download Photoshop and provide a link I would appreciate it.

 

Thanks

 

John

You cannot get just photoshop as far as I know but there is a photographers package at less than £10 a month which is photoshop, lightroom, and a couple of others related to these and photography - that is the package I have and its great.

Thanks Starsphinx, that sounds good to me but I can't find the link on the Adobe site for that package.  Probably me being thick but I'll have another look.

You will want the Creative Cloud Photography plan - the middle one when you click into photography plans

Thanks Starsphinx and MDM - now all sorted.  A new learning curve begins - I've been using Elements for a number of years but I can see benefits in this upgrade.

Wait until you use the upright tool on a building! :)

I was using Elements for quite a while before I got Photoshop CC, you will have your favourites so it won't take you long to get used to it, as well as a whole host of other goodies to play with! Well worth the £9.98 a month.

Betty, where is that tool located please? I tend to use only a very few of the PS tools in a  fairly set routine. I often have problems over buildings:( 

 

What does 'upright' do exactly?

I use the upright tool in LR. As you go down the panel of sliders, you will come to the transform panel. You’ll see the words  “upright” and then the “auto” button. Click on it.  Auto will usually get it perfect. If not, hit the off button. You can play with the guided...sometimes it works well.

If these don’t work, I open into ACR. In the toolbar up top, to the right of the crop tool, you’ll see an icon that looks like a rectangle with a semi circle of dots over it. Double click on this and it will correct the image. 90% of the time, the tool in LR or ACR will do the job. The LR is better at it in MHO.

Thanks! I thought it was a PS tool. I don't use Lightroom, just can't get one with it and I know that is my fault.

Here is a YouTube tutorial for using the upright tool in Adobe Camera Raw

See the excellent video link in post from Michael Ventura above - Lightroom is not necessary as the same tool is available in ACR and easy to use. Also you can use this in the Camera Raw filter in Photoshop CC on files that you have already converted. No excuse for converging verticals these days :mellow:

I even learned from the video. Didn’t realize guided was available in ACR.

Yes it is helpful but she does speak far too quickly for me with all the keyboards shortcuts. Will definitely use this tool.

I gave up on Adobe CC and just went with the new release of Affinity Photo a one time fee and so far meeting all my needs, also has a neat straighten tool that is easy to use.

:D I agree! That’s why in the past, while first learning PS, I bought thr Dummy books. I’ve always preferred books, but nowadays by the time you buy one, the software has changed and the book is obsolete. I learned a lot from Scott Kelby’s books.

I am better with the video tutorials. I sometimes have my iPad next to my computer so I can stop and start the video on the iPad while working on the photo.  I just finish an architectural photo shoot today for a builder client and I am using the Upright tools on every photo!  So useful!

I like both myself. Julieanne Koch's videos are very good, especially at introducing what's new in Lightroom. I like a good book for reference as the manuals are always sparse and never give a viewpoint on what is good or bad. Martin Evening is my man for this and his books don't really go out of date fast as he updates the info as updates are released on a dedicated website. My preference nowadays is for an electronic book on my iPad.

Lightroom (at least in my standalone version 6) does a pretty good job of perspective correction, but tends to over-correct on tall buildings. There should generally be a slight degree of convergence, otherwise the building will appear to the eye to be wider at the top than the bottom.

Skylum software's Luminar 2018 is becoming more popular as an image editor - especially attractive to anyone who doesn't wish to be tied to Adobe's monthly subscription deal. Luminar 2018 currently is $69 USD for Mac or PC and has free trial I believe.  I'm not a Luminar customer - yet.  But curious about it.

 

I read that Luminar has a transform function in it's RAW Develop filter to compensate for perspective problems.

 

Curious if anyone with Luminar 2018 can relate how it's transform tools work especially for the afore-mentioned building upright straightening?

I haven't had an upgrade to LR since going up to 5.6. Is it worth going the CC route (I dont have PS) or are there not many differences?

Yes I would say that there are so many differences since LR 5.6 that is is really worth upgrading for the speed enhancements alone. The CC version has many enhancements over the perpetual version as well. But it always depends on what you do with it I guess.

Thanks MDM, I'll ponder it a while, as I have very flaky internet and don't use cloud storage, so not sure if it will try to drain my data.
