It’s hard to believe that it was way back in 2007 when Lightroom, or rather Lightroom Classic as it has since been renamed, was released.
Since release, the version we now have is hardly recognisable to what it once was, especially when we consider the hefty updates that have happened more recently bringing with them Masking with A.I., Adaptive Presets and Noise Reduction.
Many of these updates have also made their way into the mobile version of Lightroom making editing on my iPhone, and more and more on my iPad, so much more user friendly and practical, especially with how the whole Lightroom ecosystem works across multiple devices and platforms synching edits.
But then there’s Lightroom or is it Lightroom CC or Lightroom Cloud ? You know … the one that kind of looks like Lightroom Classic … but isn’t.
With so many keyboard shortcuts being unlike those in Lightroom Classic and original files being stored in the cloud, to name just a couple of differences, is there really a place for it? Is there really a need for it?
Well, in this short video I show how I do actually make use of it in addition to my main workhorse Lightroom Classic; it might not be how Adobe intended but it does take advantage of something unique … well, until Adobe bring ‘said uniqueness’ into Lightroom Classic … which would make total sense … but hey
