Is the version sold in the Apple Apps Store the same as the one sold by Adobe? Does it have all the features, or is it a "light" version? It's considerably cheaper in the App Store, so that gives me pause.
I'm not a Mac user so I don't know the details, but I have seen others comment that the Apple store version has some differences/degradations from the version sold by Adobe. At this time of year, software is frequently on sale, so I wouldn't necessarily go by the price (although it seems unusual for Apple to put its current products "on sale").
The $59 price on the Apple App Store is even less than the Adobe upgrade price, so it raised flags. I'm tired of paying a "rental" fee for LR and Photoshop, so I'm going to migrate to Photoshop Elements and a couple of other apps I have for my editing. But I would prefer buying a "full" version when I do. Thank you for the response.
