Hi

When you end your subscription of the photography plan the develop module and the map module and synching stops.
You can still use the library module, continue importing, do some basic edits.
But...
Has that always been the case - from the start of the subscription plan introduction?
Heard the Adobe was forced and later changed so "unsubscribers" could use basic functionalities in the library module.

I am pretty sure this has always been the case. Why does it matter?

Thanks - Johan!
Because I don't like fake news claiming otherwise in photo forums and want to show facts.
There are so many myths and false facts spreaded by Adobe-haters.
To a new upcoming photographer, that could be crucial in his/hers choice of photo editor.

That's correct thommy. Portfolio also shuts down - if you are using it.

What I meant was ‘why does it matter if this has been so from the beginning, or was changed later?’. The only thing that matters is how it is now (and that it won’t be changed in the future, but that is something nobody can say). But perhaps it gives more confidence in that future knowing that Adobe thought about it from the very beginning.

In understand the curiosity. I personally do not know, but having gone through that time I know there was a lot of confusion swirling around how the subscription process worked and in particular how it was enforced, how long could one be offline and stay subscribed (e.g. travelling), etc. Testing was complicated by a different reaction in the product to "not checked in lately" vs "checked in and subscription was closed" (but this did not stop lots of "oh my I can't do anything" postings).

This was exacerbated by people who objected vehemently to subscription models posting rants that were less than fact filled. It was also not helped by confused messaging from Adobe themselves, and continuous name changes made it difficult at times to even tell what product was referenced if you could find an on-point statement.

So despite using it all the time it was happening and following closely, I actually cannot answer the question, and would be leery of trusting contemporaneous postings from that time unless you can find them directly from Adobe.

But I get the curiosity.
