Is Adobe Creative Cloud Worth It?

I recently purchased an Adobe Creative Cloud membership.  To be honest, I was still pretty darn happy with Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 3.  However, since I write reviews of photo software and make things like Lightroom presets to both give away and sell, it made sense to upgrade for professional reasons.

I’m not sure if there is photography software that I like as much as the Topaz Labs bundle.  Well, besides my forever “can’t live without” it Photoshop of course!  I saw a picture of a girl with a Photoshop toolbar tattooed on her forearm the other day and instantly got it.  But I digress. Topaz B&W Effects is truly amazing.

Photography Tricks and Special Effects

I have just finished reading Trick Photography and Special Effects by Evan Sharboneau, and have started the process of watching some of the 9 hours of videos that can be purchased with the book.  I am very picky about what I will spend my money on, and highly critical of most Online information products.  However, this 270 page book, the bonuses, and the videos that accompany it are worth far more than the cost.
