I just downloaded a trial version of Lightroom CC.  So far, I like it.  I do have one question.  Are there limits on the number of devices for one account?  I share my photos with my wife though we each make our own albums at times.  But we each have a laptop, an iPad, and an iPhone.  Will that be a problem?  I wouldn't think so if we share the user name and password.  But I want to be sure of this.  Thanks!

If you purchased an individual plan for Creative Cloud, you can install the software on two computers. However, you can use it on only one computer at any given time. To install Creative Cloud on a third computer, you must deactivate the apps on one of the first two computers.

So your answer is "for one account" - No limit to the number of Installations (can be >2). Limit of TWO activated at any one time. Limit of ONE 'in use' at any one time.

Actually, I have Creative Cloud installed on 3 computers- work, home, and laptop. However, while I am able to sign into CC on the third machine and download software, I cannot launch said software unless I sign out of one of the other two machines. The 2-computer limit is stupid and outdated, EVERYONE who is using this kind of software has at least these three computers in their regular workflow...

I have to agree with Shanon. I have several computers and while I do mainly use one for the processing, the others are connected to different equipments and I have to deactivate/reactivate them alternatively... which of course require an internet connexion. It's really unpractical if you go off grid for shooting.

Yes, nothng has changed since 2017.

Unlimited number of Installs, TWO maximum Activations (Sign-ins).

If you are going "off grid" with one computer/laptop, I suggest that, on this computer, a day or so before you travel, [Sign-Out] then [Sign In]. This resets the Activation 'clock' to give you the maximum time working offline without the internet.
