Anything that keeps you off the streets and out of the bars is a good thing. :lol: But seriously, my take continues to be that $10 bucks (I auto-pay too) is within reason. Sure, over time they earn more money, but no company can stay in business if they do not make a profit. Sure, there are "obscene" profits and yada yada, but I am just getting really comfortable with both LR and full PS and the last thing I want to have to do now is jump ship into, what? Something totally new I will have to spend months (at my pace) to even begin to show acceptable results? Nah! Been there! They would have to really jack it to price themselves out of my reach. The tools are too good.

This is a smart discussion I'm sure will evolve as more people migrate over and the technology evolves. S-

Thanks Chuck. I agree with you and Minnie and the others. Small price to pay for all the joy we get. Matt

Those of you who have the new Lightroom Classic installed, do try the new range masking tool - I don't know how to explain what it does or how, but you gotta try it. It is kinda magic.

Matt, Wintering in MD, in Maryland? Why not Florida? For some reason I yearn to spend a winter in Cape Cod.

As to Adobe Cloud, I've been a subscriber for a few years now for $10 a month, it's a no brainer. I spend that much at the donut/coffee shop with three visits.

Imagine how I feel. I teach Lightroom. My homework pile just got exponentially larger.

Here is another tutorial from one of my favorite guys, Anthony Morganti. He covers the same ground just a little differently, but he doesn't mention using the ALT or OPTION key as Julianne does. I find multiple approaches helpful.

Exactly! That's why I can't quite grok all the hate, but I also like Anne Hathaway a lot so there y'go. :| (?)
