As of October 2017, Adobe has ceased to sell Lightroom as a standalone software ( although you may still get previous versions via third party sellers like Amazon) and instead is only offering it via a monthly subscription in several bundle options. In addition to that change, there are now 2 versions of Lightroom available – Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC.
Lightroom CC is the newest version of the software which has been redesigned to allow users access and edit their images from any device, while storing their images in the cloud.
Lightroom Classic CC is an updated version of the primarily desktop software which this course refers to.
We have tested both versions and are still recommending to students that they purchase the bundle option which allows them access to both Lightroom Classic CC and Lightroom CC as Lightroom Classic still has more functionality, tools and power than the new Lightroom CC. Adobe themselves refer to it as version 1.0 of that software and admit freely it does not contain all the tools Adobe Classic has. This course will in time be updated with Lightroom CC version, currently, it is still covering Lightroom Classic CC.
If you have any doubts which version you should get or issues with installation, please get in touch with us – we’ll help.
