Extreme marketing hype from them and still no dual monitor support! I want to trial it before I commit to C1 but right now I am tired of waiting for this. I and many other professional photogs use 2 monitors. I don't want to risk buying it then find out they decided it will not happen.

K e n n e t h: I’m glad X-Rite finally added this for Capture One Pro

Too many steps though

I hope X-Rite can simplify the process

I agree way too many steps

The DNG converter, why support the time and money on that so I see that being dumped sooner than later to try and trap photographers.

Too late moved over to C1 and Affinity Photo.

Capture One or On1 in the next few months, it depends on whether On1 offers 2 monitor support, I am not wasting a 2nd EIZO on On1

They both also need a pro print module for laying out multple photos at diff sizes as well.

RIP Adobe

I welcome the new products as I want to leave Adobe sooner than later so I will wait to see if On1 2018 gets dual monitor support, soft proofing and a better print module. Until this happens I will stay with LR6 and On1 Photo 10. Once On1 does this and stability issues fade then I will dump Adobe like a hot potatoe!

wasTF: I wonder if that update will include the improvements on speed ?
We sufferd probably a decade now with a slow program... will this be the ultimate version ?

Even if Windows 12 will break it (i doubt it!), it is still at least 5 years in the future...

Enough time to find an alternative..

The least they could do is apply the speed fix to LR6 before they bury it, that would be the right thing to do! Show some goodwill Adobe!

On1 should have grabbed it!

tom1234567: they have to say something because they will loose customers with this cloud base
LR
a lot of people don't trust the cloud and Adobe being the greedy Basta--s they are
only care about shareholders after all they only made just over a BILLION $
in profit

time people realised what Adobe is doing its all about monies

better changing to one of the other software programs like capture one on1, anything but Adobe

and remember when you cancel your subscription they charge you £50 in the UK
don't no what in USA as I said just greedy Bs

above is my opinion others can disagree that's there parogative

The cloud nonsense is just another word for some ones else's computer is that where you want your valuables?

Back to the main frame mentality, if Adobe had their way we would all have terminals to their main frame!

(unknown member): This is just vague, marketing speak to keep the gravy train rolling without a slowdown.. don't ever trust a corporate speech at face value.. there is some nuance to what they state here in what they are committed to (as long as they need to be [to keep the record profits rolling in]).

This is just like they did LR standalone.. different team right? hah. But now we can confirm it was just a transition step to the old Lightroom CC. Once that was fully in place and revenue was solid, they were able to cut standalone loose and send it to the bottom. Planned long ago I'm sure.

I have full confidence Adobe will cut loose Lightroom Classic CC as soon as the new Lightroom CC's revenue stream is high enough... if they can get it to work that way.

They're all stair steps to their goal... full cloud system.

you got it!

Yeah that's what he and other staff said about the LR standalone and now it's dead. Don't trust anything they say. The least they could do is allow the speed issue to be corrected in LR 6 as a final gesture but I doubt they would even do that! Already in trials with other products. C1 looks great so far.

LR for me is over. However On1 still has no soft proofing or dual monitor support. C1 does. However C1 and On1 have a poor print layout module. You could purchase Qimage as an additional software to do that . LR does have a better print layout option. Right now I am in trial with C1. Then will trial On1 to see which one I go with.

I wonder if Adobe will fix the performance issue on LR6 before they get the backhoe out to bury it?

ozphoto663: I will keep LR 6 until I convert over to C1 and they provide instructions to do that. I also doubt that LR6 will get a speed increase as well. I am already reviewing training videos from Lynda.com to get me up and running fast. If I need a pixel editor I have Affinity Photo and for print layouts I have ordered Qimage which is far superior to anything LR does for printing. It is an affordable RIP type program. That's all I need for my photo business. Adobe's Hogarty who by the way said the perpetual license would continue was false. Their decision to kill LR7 makes it very easy to part ways so Adobe can eat my shorts!

I get it for free from my local library system all I need to is to login through my library system. Really good deal! The library system pays for lynda.com and as long as I hold a library card.

BillFS: No stand-alone licences any more? I stopped buying PS when that went subscription-only; it'll be the same with LR too now then.

F**k Adobe!

Just as well this old dog can still learn new tricks...

So when Adobe bragged about finally recognizing that LR was slow (and this was a joke) and they would speed it up I guess the standalone users were shafted!

Gabor Takacs: blogs.adobe.com, May 6, 2013

Q. Will Lightroom become a subscription only offering after Lightroom 5?
A. Future versions of Lightroom will be made available via traditional perpetual licenses indefinitely.

No comment.

I knew their tune would change, I know quite a few camera clubs and folks are saying they won't be held hostage so some have purchased ACDC, On1 and C1 no one that I know has purchased LR because of this. My teaching will now focus on these products.

JOrmsby: So does this mean they'll no longer be developing and upgrading the standalone version?

Thats what this article says no more standalone past LR 6

Dr_Love: I'm having no regrets about switching to capture1 last summer. This latest news only reinforces my choice. As a Sony user, Capture1 full version for $50 is a no brainer. I still miss some plug-ins but when I need one bad enough I just convert a RAW to a TIFF and I'm good to go with LR6. I refuse to subscribe to this cloud concept. In Canada we pay the highest rates for internet. One way to keep it reasonable is to accept terribly slow upload speed. I can't even look at the new CC without having to upgrade my internet service as well. I'm so glad I switched.

I agree only I will need to purchase the full verison I will not be tied to this Adobe chain!

JOrmsby: What's the best non-Adobe professional editor? Looking closely at Capture One...

Yes I would say so, one of if not the best, I already have Affinity Photo so add C1 and Adobe is out of my life forever.

Link | Posted on Oct 18, 2017 at 18:28 UTC

I just read that Lightroom is only now subscription based, no more standalone I have been waiting for this decision so goodbye Lightroom and off to Capture One I go!
