I finally upgraded my quite older iMac with a refurbished Mac Pro and its time to reload software, a quite pleasant pastime. I was thinking about "upgrading" to Adobe's Creative Cloud package with Photoshop and Lightroom. The monthly fee is less than $10 USD per month, which isn't too bad considering version upgrades in the past were fairly expensive, and standalone versions are no longer available. I'm currently using Photoshop 5.1 and Lightroom 6 standalone versions. I guess I have two questions before deciding to go with Adobe CC or not. First, can I use the service without having to store my images on Adobe's servers (I'd like to keep them where they are, on my desktop)? Second question is, I have developed about a dozen or so Photoshop Actions over the years, as well as having several plug-ins...can I still use these actions and plugins with a prescription-based program? If not, that tells me to stay with what I've been using.
