    Adobe Lightroom changes

    Adobe has announced a major overhaul of its cloud-based Lightroom service, reflecting the increasingly mobile-centric nature of image capture, editing and sharing.

    Lightroom CC remains, but will now be known as Lightroom Classic CC, with Adobe launching an all-new cloud-based Lightroom CC service that's designed to make Lightroom more accessible, allowing you to edit, store and share your photos wherever you are.

    I'm going to have a good read up on the new package as it sounds quite interesting. My current Lightroom Mobile app upgraded yesterday so I have an idea how the desktop one will work , just need to work out if its worth switching from the Classic version or not.

    John - I played around with the new tool for a few hours. Uploading 180 40MB raw files took some time; 1-1/2 hours roughly (I have fairly fast internet that runs at 10 Mb/ sec upload and 60 Mb / sec download). I've shot over 1TB of images year to date, so the bandwidth use would be crazy. When traveling I find the connectivity at hotels, even in places that are known for having good connectivity to be marginal at best, so again, I'm not sure how this version would be useful for me.


    The basic functionality is very much like the "Classic" develop module, so if that is all the editing one is planning to do, perhaps. From a pure usability / user interface standpoint, I prefer what I see to the "Classic" Llightroom


    Bottom line is I have no idea who the target audience is for this product; it certainly is not me. I've uninstalled it from my computer and don't expect to reinstall it again.

    Serge Ramelli isn't going to use it either. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKdp-BxhKzM&t=63s

    And, he's a Lightroom fan. However, since I don't use Lightroom, it is a moot point for me....

    Richard - having watched the video, that's not quite what he said. He will be using the Lightroom CC software for images captured on his iPhone, but not in his workflow with his regular Sony camera. There he will stick with the Lightroom CC Classic.

    Re: Adobe Lightroom changes

    I posted this in another thread, but in case you didn't see it, check out the table at the bottom of this posting: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/light...ssic-features/. The cloud version is at this point a badly stripped-down version of the "classic." This is true both for the DAM functions and the editing functions. It doesn't even have a curves tool. It's useless for serious editing, IMHO.

    Yes, Victoria's the go to person for Lightroom stuff.

    She reorganised the forums last week in a way they didn't make much sense - till now!
