Adobe just announced a way for ANYONE to get Photoshop CC, Lightroom, cloud storage and more for only $9.99/mo. It used to be that you needed a previous version of Photoshop to get this deal. The deal starts now and only runs until December 2nd, so I'd jump over to their website and sign up if you've been on the fence about getting either of those software packages.
I use Photoshop CC and Lightroom and couldn't imagine being a photographer without both of these programs. Even if you do most of your editing in Lightroom, Photoshop is a necessity for advanced effects, serious retouching, making quick panorama stitches, simple video editing with creative effects, and more. All of our Photoshop Actions, Borders, Textures, and Album Layout tools work perfectly with Photoshop CC and our Lightroom presets are all dialed for Lightroom 5.
