"Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic 2022 Lifetime Full Version for Windows " is being offered by Boffal (Boffal.com) for £32. I'm seriously considering cancelling my Creative Cloud subscription and buying this instead. I'm not using Lightroom and Photoshop enough for my subscription to be good value. Does anyone have any experience of Boffal? What would be the disadvantages of buying this?

Boffal is also offering Photoshop 2022 for the same price, I may buy both.

Thanks in advance for your comments/advice.

There is no such thing as a lifetime license for Lightroom Classic so it can only be hacked. I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole.

Thanks, Victoria.

What would happen if I simply stop paying my subscription? Would I still be able to use my current versions of Lightroom and Photoshop? I presume I would not get updates. If I can continue to use the software I presume I would lose it when I replace my PC, is that right?

If you cancel, Lightroom carries on working but without Develop module or sync. Photoshop doesn’t work at all.

I’ve just checked and it’s already been confirmed and reported as a scam. Good thing you checked!

And the first time the software tries to update it will probably be disabled. And Adobe could conceivably blacklist you

Cracked apps can also come with embedded malware. That could possibly be much worse than being blacklisted by Adobe.
