Additional device licenses

It would be great if we could add a computer so we could have three devices licensed. With most of us using a desktop workstation, a laptop, and now a portable tablet, three devices seems better than two.

Depends on what your tablet is, but Android and iPads don't count towards your devices, so you can activate on them as many as you like.

You can install on three different devices but only two can be active at a time. Many people in this situation today, have the software installed and activate and deactivate as necessary. Do you use all three devices in the course of a single day?

Okay, that is a good idea. I do not use them all on the same day and the tablet is only a "once in a while" need for Lightroom and Photoshop. I am going to try this and see how easy it is to deactivate and then activate.

Thanks for the great idea!

Two years ago it might have been nice to have more than 2 devices running Adobe software. But today, it is a necessity !!! Today we are living in the could era and we need to access our cloud catalogue from more devices than before. I have 2 PC's in the studio, 1 PC at home and 2 laptops all of which have to run Lightroom and access my could catalogue. Constantly deactivating and reactivating is very annoying. Some of us might even be willing to pay a little extra to add more devices. Remember even Microsoft allows up to 5 (five) devices. Adobe, please reconsider !
