I am lost....

So, I am wondering what I would like more. Would I like Light Room or PS? I have PSE, but I am looking online and I see that I can get a discount b/c I am a student and a teacher. What is the difference in the student one? Anyone know? Also, is PS CS6 now called PS Creative Cloud? I am looking at buying under the adobe website and I am so confused!

I'm not much help, Sadie. I haven't made the move to lightroom. And I've got a fairly old version of PS (CS4).

Hopefully someone a bit more knowledgeable will be able to guide you.

Best of luck!

Yeah, I can't help either. Hopefully Steph will have a minute to answer you, as she has LR now... not sure who else out there does!

I use PSE11 and LR4, and I like the combination. Of course, I haven't really played with CS at all, so I can't give any input on that at all.

Not sure about the Creative Cloud. I do remember reading something about it, but I have no idea what's going on with it.

As far as the student price...It's the same exact thing, you just get a discount because you are a student Smile

Like Steph said, there is no difference for PS for students/teachers.

Creative Cloud is a subscription. Basically you are renting PS, but with some "perks". Here is an explanation straight from Adobe about Creative Cloud.

"Creative Cloud brings together everything you need to create your greatest work. One simple membership gives you and your team access to the very latest versions of all the Adobe professional creative desktop applications like Photoshop?, Illustrator?, and more — plus new features and upgrades as soon as they're available. Cloud storage and file syncing capabilities allow you to reliably access your files wherever you are, even on your mobile device, and you can share concepts with clients or colleagues more easily than ever. Cloud-based services let you build and publish websites, mobile apps, iPad publications, and content for any medium or device. And with Behance? integration, you can publish your customized portfolio on your own URL and plug into the world's largest creative community to get inspired, get feedback, and find new opportunities. With Creative Cloud, your entire creative world gets its own central dashboard to keep your ideas, files, fonts, settings, notifications, desktop applications, and team members in sync."
