Post Lightroom CC is Not CC Anymore....

Adobe is doing it again. Shuffling the decks and making a mess of things. The Lightroom CC that is around now is becoming Lightroom Classic CC....

Why?

Because there is a new Lightroom CC.... the new one is CLOUD based. Yup, cloud.

So the new Lightroom CC is a cloud based app, and your images have to be in the cloud too. Not too sure that is a brilliant idea, or a fast idea, but that is the ideal. if you just want Lightroom CC, then it will cost you $10/month, and that gives you 1TB of storage. That 1TB of storage might not be enough for a lot of people. You can buy more storage if you want.

The Lightroom Classic CC continues as it was, same subscription model and price. Both software versions get improvements to speed, but some say the cloud CC version might be faster, presumably because it is written from ground up, and would have no old code. No idea.

The cloud CC version can't do merge to HDR or Merge to pano either. Can't print (no Print module). Doesn't have a Map module either, and doesn't have other stuff. So it is limited, but they say they are working on adding the missing pieces.

I was okay with the move to a subscription model, but others stabbed Adobe in the heart and waked away. I'm sticking with the Classic CC version, and will dabble in others, but I'm not sitting there uploading an SD card full of images to the cloud before doing any work. You'd be smart to go through the images and toss out (pick/reject) some and only update the "keepers", especially if you can manage to fill 1TB in short order, which a lot of us could do.

YMMV......

Thanks for the info. I am sure there are proponents for either way Adobe does business but I sure liked it the way it was. I thought they had a good thing.

I have 3 different image processing software programs but each of Adobe's changes in fee structure and capabilities or lack of makes the "other" software begin to look even better. IMHO that is.

I haven't done any research into this new switch just yet. You can't save your images at all to your own HD? There's no option to do that? If that's true, I don't think I like that at all. I might just stay with the classic version. Also with no pano or HDR merge, it kind of seems hobbled.

I just had a friend inform me of these changes. I'm still with LR6 and PS5 because the subscription turned me off. I will build a new PC soon and thought about doing the subscription on it but I don't like no computer based catalog if that will be the case.

Do any of the Lightroom alternatives allow batch/sync processing?

It's been a while since I looked at Capture One. At the I don't remember seeing too much different from LR. Since it was so similar I didn't want to learn to use new software. Is Capture one much better than LR today?

As far as I was concerned it was always better, that’s why I use it. The DAM portion has improved over time for those that need/want it. It handles 95% of what I do. The other 5% Lightroom couldn’t do either. They have a free trial. Give it a shot.
