Is Lightroom Classic quicker?What is the difference between Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC?

This is the news. What is the difference between Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC

If you listen to the latest episode of The Grid, which I have just done, this is the difference in a nutshell. 

Choose Lightroom CC if

  • You don’t use adjustment brushes, 
  • You don’t use virtual copies. 
  • You don’t do HDR Merge. 
  • You don’t take lots of photos in RAW. 
  • You don’t use any plug-ins. 
  • You are happy with all your photos on the cloud. 

I need all of these things, so Lightroom CC is not for me, 

That is that done then. 

This is not an exhaustive list – just the main things that I want/ need from Lightroom Classic that Lightroom CC will not give me,

At least I know now, 

For now, I am sticking with Lightroom Classic.

Once I have completed my backlog of architectural photography work I will have a a rethink, but that is me for now, 

I will post an update on how Lightroom and Photoshop have performed later on today on my photography blog, to hopefully keep you all up to date with how Lightroom and Photoshop are working. 

If you have any questions please get in touch and I will answer any questions on Lightroom and Photoshop as they are today.
