Adobe Lightroom CC (Cloud-Based) and Lightroom Classic CC Announced

Adobe officially announced the new cloud-based Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC (rebranded the old Lightroom 7 to Lightroom Classic CC). With the announcement of Lightroom Classic CC, it means there will be no Lightroom 7 and no standalone version. The Lightroom 6.13 will be released on October 26 with support for the Nikon D850.

What’s the Difference Between Lightroom and Lightroom Classic?

Going forward, the product you’ve known as Lightroom will be rebranded “Lightroom Classic CC”.  Why change? We have introduced a new photography service that will now be called “Lightroom CC”. It is designed to be a cloud-based ecosystem of apps that are deeply integrated and work together seamlessly across desktop, mobile, and web.  Lightroom Classic CC is designed for desktop-based (file/folder) digital photography workflows. It’s a well-established workflow solution that is distinct and separate from our new cloud-native service.  By separating the two products, we’re allowing Lightroom Classic to focus on the strengths of a file/folder based workflow that many of you enjoy today, while Lightroom CC addresses the cloud/mobile-oriented workflow.

What’s New in Lightroom Classic CC

As many of our customers know, Lightroom Classic (originally Lightroom) was born to help you manage your photography workflows and bring your images to life with a fleet of editing capabilities.  But while the palette of Lightroom features grew, our performance detracted from these gains.  So we took stock of where you were feeling the most performance anxieties, and dedicated this launch primarily to addressing these issues. The concerns that we gathered primarily centered around optimizing Lightroom Classic’s import and editing workflows.

Here are some of the highlights of where we have made gains that we have tested internally and are betting you will see:

  • Application launch time
  • Preview generation including in Standard, 1:1 and Minimal previews
  • Import selection workflow with “Embedded & Sidecar” preview option (tips here)
  • Switching between Library and Develop Module
  • Moving from photo to photo in the Develop Module
  • Responsive brushing

We have also added new tools to make precise color and tone-based selections for Local Adjustments. You can now use the adjustment brush, radial, or graduated filters to define a rough mask, then refine the selection via the new Range Masking options found at the bottom of each Local Adjustment panel. This serves as a nice complement to meet your masking needs with the already existing auto mask feature in place.

What’s New in the Lightroom CC Ecosystem

Introducing Lightroom CC

The Lightroom CC ecosystem is a cloud-based service with three device-based apps: desktop, mobile and web.

Lightroom CC is designed and built around 3 guiding principles:

  • Powerful Yet Simple—Lightroom CC will offer the powerful image editing that you want, while being simple and intuitive to use. Our goal is that it will have everything you need and nothing you don’t.
  • Seamless experience across all your devices—Lightroom CC will work the same across desktop, mobile, and web. This allows you to move across your devices without needing to relearn or figure things out. Your photos and edits are all where you’d expect them to be.
  • Cloud Based—Everything you do in Lightroom CC is synced to the cloud. This means that you can access and work with your photos from any device (including multiple computers), and can easily share photos with others. All of your photos and all of the work that you do with them will be automatically backed up all the time.
