If you're a professional photographer/editor this is probably a good deal. But for the casual photographer/editor Adobe CC is a waste of money. There are so many cheaper alternatives that are just as good...(choices depend on what OS you use)...

Affinity Photo (Mac)
Photoshop Elements (PC & Mac)
Gimp (PC & Mac) .....and it's FREE)
Paint.NET (Windows) FREE
SeaShore (Mac) FREE
Paintshop Pro (Windows)
Pixelmator Pro (Mac)

I am sure there are more I missed....Don't get me wrong...if you are a PROFESSIONAL or HEAVY photo editor then Adobe CC is probably a must. But even some of the alternatives I mentioned can edit RAW files which has always been a drawback of Photoshop alternatives...

Affinity Photo is now on Windows too.

Wish they just had Lightroom for a cheaper price. That's all I need (now that I use Affinity).

I have locally installed fully licensed Photoshop and Lightroom. Of late I mostly use Lightroom only. Does it make any sense for someone like me to get CC? And what happens after 1 year if I move to cc? Can I ever move back to locally installed versions? Will my locally installed versions stay updated and valid also?

Looking for practical help and advice only please. I know Google too...

I am still running on an old locally installed version, haven't upgraded. But I imagine if you have the install files and clear all registry on windows or plist on Mac, you should be able to revert back. Haven't tried. Keep in mind though, things you do on the newer version might not work with the old.

I really wasn't swaying either way on adobe until I replaced my old camera and my current version of lightroom 5.7 did not recognize the pictures from my new camera, even after the updates. Therefore now I have to convert them to using their DNG converter and then importing them into lightroom. Is it a big hassle? No. But it is yet another step.

I did download the trial version of the latest lightroom and sure enough, the pictures get imported with no issues. :\

not a super expert, but have knowledge.

Basically, keep the versions separate, on one computer or each on a different computer would be best. At the least, Keep the serial numbers in case.

If you are fine with what you have then not sure the need for CC. Always depends on your money situation.
If you are buying a new camera then your older versions of PS/LR may not read the RAW files. There are work arounds, by making a digital negative, but it is extra work in work flow.

Your list of apps is focused on image editing.

Lightroom is much more than that and also serves the purpose of a powerful image management tool, e.g., keywording, captioning, geotagging, adjusting capture date/time, creating collections, posting directly to online services, etc.

Having just collecting well over 700 historical slides from my father who recently passed away, I can attest to the need for this information to be collected and preserved with the scans I am creating.

Images without the appropriate metadata stored with them aren't going to be of much use for future generations.
