One the positive side, Adobe’s decision made me search for alternatives to LR (I’ve been using LR since 2007 …)
I’m currently evaluating C1 (which I didn’t know before), and I am already finding quite a few advantages to LR.
In particular
- The image quality you get with minimum PP (I use D810 raw files )
- Ability to use multiple layers (not a substitute for Photoshop), but enough capabilities for my kind of work
- PP possibilities especially regarding colors and levels
- Intuitive interface

Rishi, I do not share your views.

For Adobe, the Cloud represents a good very opportunity to increase their revenues; after the introduction of subscription only applications, there is now on the horizon a fee to access your photos; the more photos you have, the more you pay, month after month; what a wonderful business model.

I could live with a subscription based application (I already have a CC subscription); I will never pay to store and access my photos.

And you say that there is no plan to stop Lightroom CC “classic” : remember when Adobe made the commitment, 3 years ago, to keep Lightroom as a standalone application with a perpetual license ?
Lightroom CC classic will be gone in 3-4 years (the planned obsolescence is already in the name of the product)

I’m currently evaluating Capture 1; so far so good; I will most certainly stop my CC subscription, and will keep my “old” LR6 for my exiting LR catalogs; the sooner the better.

They started with the application and they continue with the data.
Adobe does not see the Cloud as a way to offer new services, but as a cash machine

As its name implies, Lightroom CC Classic is already legacy; Lightroom CC will become maintream in one or two versions.

As for me, I have absolutely no intention to move my 20+ catalogs and 2+ TB to the cloud (even not possible with the current CC version).

I will assess C1, and if it suits my need will migrated to it, and drop my current Lightroom subscription
