Cancelled my Adobe Photography Plan and got billed for doing it:

Here’s what to expect if you cancel now:

  • You’ll be charged a £44.55 cancellation fee (50% of your remaining annual contract).

  • Access to your plan will end on June 13, 2019.

  • Your storage limits could be reduced.

I have gone with Affinity Photo and Luminar instead.

No more monthly subscriptions for me.

To add - Having watched a few Youtube videos and processed a few images I will say for photography Affinity Photo and Luminar 3 do all and more that Photoshop and Lightroom did in my workflow with a few added extras for a much smaller yearly cost and no monthly subscription. I'm happy and will not go back to Adobe in the foreseeable future.

Here is a sum up video of what's been going on, JCristina's experiences and words mirror mine.
