Adobe recently made a significant change to their Lightroom platform and in doing so, indicated the direction that they see for the future of post-processing. For the past several years, Adobe has been working to add online functionality to the program but this update makes it clear that they have fully embraced cloud computing. Granted, when they switched to the Creative Cloud subscription format a few years back, it was pretty clear what they had in mind from their branding of the service, but I think this recent update shows that they believe that that future of post-processing starts today. Don’t worry if you aren’t ready to fully embrace it yourself. For the time being, Adobe is offering the new Lightroom CC app alongside the old familiar version that we’ve all come to know and love, however, they’ve indicated that we are probably coming to the end of the line for the stand alone version as they’ve rebranded it as Lightroom Classic CC.
I’ve created a short introduction to the new Lightroom CC program to get you started. I plan to make additional videos showing some of the new features in the weeks to come. Send me a note if you have any questions and I’ll be sure to address them as I help you learn Lightroom CC.
