I think that most people who buy cameras simply want something that will take pictures while people here on DPR are in search of the latest, greatest to the inth degree tech. Inexpensive, well known and marketed cameras sell well. Heck, to most people, post processing means putting their photos on Instagram and using a filter. This is not a group you can easily sell thousand dollar bodies and $700 lens to.

Turns out there are lots of glasses similar to this already for sale.

Jacques Cornell: When LR CC does Merge to Pano and Merge to HDR, and doesn't require uploading all my photos (4TB) to CC, then I'll consider it. Until then, it's a hobbyist app.

Because it doesn't work for you makes it a hobbyist app? What about people who choose to load images on their desktop and have those images sync across their laptop and tablet (something I find very useful)? What about people who shoot events, who are not interested in panos or HDR, they are interested in getting images processed and shared quickly?

We have become so quick to judge things now. If we like it than its great. If we don't than its a toy. I don't shoot HDR but I don't think its a gimmicky toy either.

raztec: Who cares anymore what Adobe does?
As far as I'm concerned they're history.

It would not surprise me. Currently I have the following recurring payments. Netflix, Dropbox, cellular service, Photoshop CC, photo booth software. I'm used to it now.

Fortunate for those who cannot stop talking about how much they hate Adobe, there are alternatives to keep you happy. For the rest of us, these are very nice new features which (at least for me) are going to greatly improve productivity.

The auto feature works extremely well when you have many images from an event to quickly process, especially when dealing with tricky lighting. Love it.

AustinMN: This is a speedlight. It is refreshing to hear someone talk about it without calling it a studio strobe.

If we are calling it the correct name then it should be called an on camera flash. Speedlight is Nikon, Speedlite is Canon.

Just saying...

Even nicer, you can now pause network syncing with Lightroom Mobile CC. No longer does it hog up the wifi when you add photos to your catalog. You can wait to sync until it is convenient. Editing on an iPad is exactly like editing with Lightroom CC on the desktop.

lb77: "The new reality of photography [is one] where users tend to take a lot of their photos on their phones - and take a lot more images in general. [Many of them want] a powerful tool that allows them to communicate but doesn’t require them to spend a lot of time to learn." - Adobe Director of Product Management Tom Hogarty (took the quote from the other article). Besides being a very depressing quote it's also a strategic mistake. Adobe core should be the pros or very enthusiastic amateurs / artists. I embraced the "digital darkroom" concept "developing" raw files myself and carefully editing, selecting and archiving when I started to have more interest in photography. No amateur I know of that takes tons of photos with a mobile phone or cheap camera will ever want to develop raw files or edit that much paying for it or even spend time learning about it. There are hundreds of apps like instagram covering that ground and software like picasa, google photos etc. For free.

You only loose you ability to process images and use the maps. The other modules continue to work. You can print, export and organize files.

This is no doubt the longest beating of a dead horse in the history of horses.

Yep, a completely dead horse continues to be beaten... to death. If you don't want to subscribe you can stay on LR6 or move on to any of a number of other alternatives. Its too simple to waste this much time complaining about it. The ship has sailed, Adobe is not turning back.

Sorry but I am referring to the CC model. After a couple of years now it is clearly a dead horse topic.

JakeAllbrightPhoto: Well this helps me and my 20 TBs of images... oh wait... Why would I want to pay more for space I don't need? I'm completely confused by this. I'm now paying more than triple for the same thing, but twice?

you should stay with Lightroom Classic as it functions today as it did yesterday.

Thank the Maker!!! Maybe now people can buy some decent perpetual license software and STOP WHINING about Photoshop CC. Something to please everyone! Seriously, the constant whining and complaining about the subscription model has beaten a whole herd of horses to death.

As someone who has carried a firearm and a badge, I still remember the parts of our training about protecting the public, being sure of your target, shooting center mass, deadly force only when justified, etc. Many good officers out there doing their job. If it was easy, anyone could do it. The average individual is not cut out for the job.

Cool. I'm vacationing in Jamaica next week and I am determined to leave my laptop at home and just bring my iPad for any lightweight processing I may want to do.

Got to leave room for the rum!

In reply to:

CameraCarl: Unfortunately the new iPad interface makes the image much smaller because side panels now take up 1/3 of the screen space, even when not in editing mode, and can't be shrunk. I really don't need that much space dedicated to telling me what my image file name and information are.... I already know, after all I took the image! I wonder if Adobe ever asks users what we really want? If they had asked me, I would have opted for the largest image size I can get on my screen.

Tap the 'i' and you will get full screen plus the ability to rate images. You may need to tap the 'i' twice to go full screen.

You can also title and caption images from the 'i' screen!
