Check Out How I Use Adobe Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC Together

A few weeks back at Adobe Max, the namesake company announced some major updates to the Creative Cloud including some particularly interesting changes to Lightroom. Since the update, the one question I got asked more than any other is how I plan on incorporating the new Lightroom CC within my workflow. After spending the past two weeks familiarizing myself with the new app, I’ve established a workflow that I find quite capable and put this video together walking you through it. Give it a gander and let me know what you think in the comments.

    Lightroom CC is not “more powerful” than Apple Photos – at least not currently. If you use Apple Devices, then this is a waste of money unless you absolutely need LR Classic or PhotoShop, etc. – or already use those and will just be fitting this into an existing workflow (LR’s mobile workflow before was pretty shoddy, IMO, so this is actually a bit of an improvement). Otherwise, just use Photos and pay Apple [much] less for storage; then buy Affinity Photo and use it as an Extension in Photo for macOS and iPad.

    On PC Platform, I’d simply subscribe to Office 365 and use ACDSee Pro/Ultimate on top of OneDrive (integrated in-app); perhaps with PaintShop Pro or Affinity Photo installed as a Pixel Editor… That’s still cheaper and much better value than Adobe in the long term. I don’t think Adobe Sensei is worth it, and it doesn’t really give you anything you don’t already largely get from Google, Microsoft, or Apple. I don’t think the target audience for Lightroom CC will feel the difference between PhotoShop and PaintShop Pro or Affinity Photo – or Lightroom and ACDSee.

    I think the move to cloud-based photo storage is a no-brainer for Adobe, because the alternative photo editing software solutions are getting too good, to the point where they will start to siphon off those “consumer/prosumer” sales/subscriptions from them. Getting people to put all of their stuff in your cloud storage makes it annoying enough to migrate away, that many people will actually ignore cheaper and arguably better alternatives just to avoid the hassle of migration. this is not really much different than what Microsoft did with Office, where the absence of a “cheap way” to get Microsoft Office was driving increasing numbers of people to cheaper or free alternatives.

    But Adobe isn’t offering enough to be worth $9.99/mo., especially when they force you to sign a yearly contract for it. Getting a Creating Cloud subscription feels like signing a cell phone contract.
