For how long...

I can still use my Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 5.

The real question is how long though, will Adobe be updating it for a while to track with operating system updates and the like?   That's the thing that concerns me most, is that you might have to get the subscription versions just to get bug-fixes for what you already have and use.

I don't mind it so much for Photoshop, where I use the tool every now and again and can easily switch to some other photo editor.   But Lightroom is a whole different matter, because it's the kind of thing you build into your workflow and you have a ton of images housed in.   I would not want to have to pay in perpetuity to be able to access my photo library.
