    Hiya so i'm starting uni in september doing photography. I know that it seems like a simple problem but for some reason i'm wondering if i should buy the photoshop equipment i want/ need (lightroom and photoshop) now or if i should wait until september as i know that adobe do some sort of deal for students. I would like to just go ahead and buy it now so that i can practice my editing etc this summer but obviously i'm on a student budget and photoshop is fairly expensive. Any thoughts on what others are doing or have done in the past would be appreciated as i'm just trying to get an idea of what the situation of it is as i couldnt find anything on the university website. Thanks! 😁

    I've never studied photography and I don't know what, if any, deals Adobe does for students, but if you want Lightroom and Photoshop Adobe do a 'photography plan' subscription which is about £8 a month. It is a 12 month minimum subscription though.
