Like many recovering Aperture users I'm reassessing my future organization/editing choices and I have a question that seems somewhat critical to me. Adobe has made their "Photography" subscription permanent at $9.99/month. So you get LR and PS for 10 bucks a month in perpetuity (at least that's how I understand the offer). It's surprisingly tempting except for one thing. I've read that if you stop paying the subscription you will not be able to open your files. Is this an internet myth? I could see that you can't open psd files without PS but LR files should be stored as RAW on import (NEF for Nikon) and then perhaps as a DNG if I understand LR. Would it be that without LR you would only be able to get to the originals and you would lose all your edits? Naturally if you exported anything as a jpg or tiff then it would not be effected by stopping your subscription. If you import directly into LR (subscription) the originals are stored on your computer in RAW format, right and not on the cloud?
