Price direct from Adobe is £102.30 for the year so this is a good saving for those using Adobe's Photography Creative Cloud plan.

Good deal thanks! I just changed from the monthly £8.78. A word of advice if you're currently on the annual sub with monthly renewal - I bought the code from Amazon but on trying to cancel (you have to do this via online chat with a rep) I was told that I'd be charged a 50% cancellation fee... Thankfully, as I had a valid code, they happily cancelled the monthly one free of charge so I could apply the cheaper annual one, and this will start when my current monthly sub ends. So £8.78 x 12 = 105.36 Now it's just £79.99 = saved me £25

Can you just cancel your subscription? I was under the impression it was a contract?

Good deal - guessing the cold votes are due to subscription model Adobe use...can't complain at £80 for legitimate software.

​that's £80 a year. ... not a one off. ., so its (for arguments sake) £800 over ten years

If you use Lightroom/Photoshop alot (like I do) this is good deal so heat added.

One thing to accept is the subscription model is the future and it won't go away any time soon if users complain about it.

Also the statement "that's £80 a year. ... not a one off. ., so its (for arguments sake) £800 over ten years" makes it an even better deal if you take into account the cost of upgrading the stand alone versions over ten years.

Voted hot

Subscription models and cloud services are the very reason to use illegitimate software. However, to each their own.

But at least you'll have latest versions??? Lightroom recently added panoramic features and HDR stacking, so worthwhile over v5 to me...each to their own as you say.

Thought this was a good deal at less than £7 a month so voted hot, that's all

So don't vote with your money because doing so won't change anything?

I've downloaded the 30 day free trial and I'm impressed with the presets and those alone have made my images so much more professional looking!

I'm probably going to get Lightroom but feel it may be better value for me to get the CD install version for around £100 which will last indefinately rather than pay the subscription as I don't feel the need to have all the latest bells and whistles.. I assume I probably will only use 10% of it's features similar to every other software I have e.g. MS Office

For businesses that may need multiple programs and the latest versions I guess the maths makes sense. However as I home user of Adobe Audition they lost me as a customer with the move to a (completely overpriced) subscription only model.

The problem that companies like Micro$soft and Adobe have is that their cash-cow products have now reached a level of maturity where they can add little value with each new release, and almost certainly not enough to justify the high cost of upgrading for most people. So faced with this they are attempting to keep the wheel turning by offering their latest releases though a subscription-only model, which is bad for us customers but obviously great for them.

But the sad fact is that some people believe this to be the future and are willing to accept it with open arms.

Tempting, but I fear I'd buy it then hardly use it over the year. £20 more for something lasting longer than a year seems a better idea, even if it went have the latest tiny additions every now and then.
