Adobe Announces Cloud-Based Lightroom CC
« on: October 18, 2017, 09:26:24 AM »
Integrated Cloud-Based Service Enables Easy Editing, Organizing, Storing and Sharing of Photography From Anywhere

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the all-new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC cloud-based photography service. Launched over a decade ago, Lightroom became the industry’s leading desktop application for editing and organizing photography. Now in an increasingly mobile-centric world, and with major improvements in smartphone cameras, Lightroom is transforming digital photography again. Built for professionals and enthusiasts, the new Lightroom CC fulfills the demands of today’s photographers for a more accessible, cloud-based photography service for editing, organizing, storing and sharing their photos from wherever they are.

Featuring a streamlined user interface, Lightroom CC enables powerful editing in full resolution across mobile, desktop and the web. With Lightroom CC, photographers can make edits on one device and automatically synchronize their changes everywhere. Lightroom CC makes organizing photography collections easier with features like searchable keywords that are automatically applied without the hassle of tagging. And Lightroom CC makes it simple to share photos on social media.

“As the leader in digital photography, today Adobe is unveiling Lightroom CC, our next generation photography service,” said Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe. “Lightroom CC answers photographers’ demand for a deeply integrated, intelligent, cloud-based photography solution.”

Key Lightroom CC capabilities include:

  • The most powerful image editing technology: Built on the same imaging technology that powers Photoshop and Lightroom, Lightroom CC offers a new streamlined interface with easy-to-use sliders, presets and quick adjustment tools.
  • Edit anywhere: Lightroom CC allows photographers to edit full-resolution photos anywhere – on mobile devices, desktop or the web. Edits made on one device are automatically synced across devices for anywhere access.
  • Worry free back-up, cloud storage: Lightroom CC has scalable storage options for safe and secure back up of full-resolution photos – including raw files.
  • Powered by Adobe Sensei: Adobe Sensei’s machine learning technology automatically applies searchable keywords to objects in photographs – making organization in Lightroom CC effortless.
  • Built-in sharing tools: Lightroom CC makes it easy to share photos directly via social media and to create custom Lightroom web galleries that can be shared via link. Photographers can also share their work through new Adobe Portfolio integration with Lightroom CC.
  • Updated award-winning mobile and web experiences:
    • Lightroom CC for mobile on iOS: Built-in search functionality powered by Adobe Sensei, keyword support, hierarchical album support, an enhanced iPad app layout and iOS 11 files support.
    • Lightroom CC for mobile on Android: Tablet support and a local adjustments brush, along with the same built-in search functionality, keyword support and hierarchical album support as seen in the iOS app.
    • Lightroom CC for web: Ability to create and manage a public gallery page, as well as enhanced integration with Adobe Portfolio, which enables subscribers to easily import collections and publish their best shots to a customized Portfolio website in just a few clicks.

Updates to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC Major updates to Lightroom Classic CC, previously known as Lightroom CC, include an enhanced Embedded Preview workflow that enables users to scroll through large sets of photos to select a subset of images significantly faster than before. Lightroom Classic CC also features new editing capabilities, including a new Color Range and Luminance Masking functionality that enables users to apply precise edits. As contrasted with the cloud-centric, anywhere workflows of Lightroom CC, the new Lightroom Classic CC continues to focus on a more traditional desktop-first workflow with local storage and file and folder control.

Availability, Plans and Pricing The all-new Lightroom CC is available across three photography plans:

  • For photographers that want an all-in-one plan that offers the full benefits of the Lightroom CC service plus the transformative power of Photoshop, the Creative Cloud Photography plan with 1 TB includes Lightroom CC, Lightroom for mobile and web, Photoshop CC, Adobe Spark with premium features, Adobe Portfolio, and 1 TB of cloud storage ($19.99/month, but available at $14.99/month for the first year for existing Creative Cloud Photography customers).
  • Lightroom CC has also been added to the existing Creative Cloud Photography plan with an additional 20 GB of storage to help users get started on the new service. This plan remains at $9.99/month and includes Lightroom CC, Lightroom for mobile and web, Lightroom Classic, Photoshop CC, Adobe Spark with premium features, Adobe Portfolio, and 20 GB of cloud storage. Creative Cloud All Apps members also have access to the new Lightroom CC service.
  • The all-new Lightroom CC plan addresses the needs of photographers who want a cloud-based photography service for editing, organizing, storing and sharing their photos from wherever they are, and includes Lightroom CC, Lightroom for mobile and web, Adobe Spark with premium features, Adobe Portfolio, and 1 TB of cloud storage ($9.99/month).

For those who are truly mobile and don’t require a desktop photography solution, the Lightroom Mobile plan for iOS and Android is available with 100 GB ($4.99/month).

One TB of photos is nothing. When I come back from a one week photo tour, I have easily 500 GB and 5.000 - 10.000 raw photos. I don´t see how this could attract anybody. Too expensive for amateurs, too small for professionals.
Photography is painting with light. A great photo creates a strong feeling, i.e. "I would love to have been there, in that very magic moment."

And some of us are stuck on the end of 3.5Mbps net speeds!!! Cloud storage is worth nothing to me.

If that means, Adobe wants us to upload all our photos before we can even edit them in the new Lightroom, they must be seriously nuts. I hope this is not the beginning of the end of Lightroom (Classic).

Furthermore: 1TB... xD
I'm not a pro but my library wouldn't fit.

Am I correct to read that if I were to continue with my current LR+Photoshop the price doubles? And for my current payment I will get LR+ Spark?

Looks like I may be bailing on this one.

I don't think you are.
Your current plan essentially stays the same, and you still get LR and PS.

The new plan at double the price gives you 1TB of cloud space to play with the new LR CC.

At least that's how i read it, hope I'm not wrong ...

“Lightroom CC answers photographers’ demand for a deeply integrated, intelligent, cloud-based photography solution.”

Really? Who are these photographers? Surely most Pros & enthusiasts favour LR on their PC/Mac/laptop.

As to cloud storage, way too expensive. Here in the UK at least, I get unlimited storage included in my Amazon Prime subscription (which also includes free postage & Amazon TV/Music).

If by renaming Lightroom CC to Lightroom Classic is Adobe's way of saying we're phasing it out, then I'll be looking elsewhere. I find LR handy as a cataloguing tool but still find editing via Photoshop quicker and easier.

I think you are right: LR/Photoshop/20GB or LR/1TB for the same price. 

But I agree with the above - the reference to 'LR Classic' is strange.

That's your two options there will be no new perpetual offerings.

1TB sound like the starting option at $ 19.95 per month I would imagine just like Apple cloud storage you can increase this for a fee. The additional sum of $ 10 per month over Lightroom Classic CC means its cheaper to buy 1TB of local storage you own & control than give Adobe $ 120 per annum per TB. I edit all my shots on my MacBook Pro with all files stored on local drives Ive no intention of allowing any provider to control my copyright asset.

Sure Adobe is in it to make money but my sense is Silicone Valley companies want to ever increase what they fleece out of us expensively.

Time for China to provide some competition.

Can anybody download the new version of Lightroom and Photoshop ?  The options are on the Adobe website, but the Creative Cloud desktop app doesn't open on my PC.

The phone photographers. In other news, Adobe is expanding its Adobe Stock service.... lots of photos in your storage and "AI" crawlers to spot some valuable ones can feed Adobe Stock easily. They can also sell services to process photos to gather data from them... that's the true value of "deeply integrated, intelligent, cloud-based photography solution" - for Adobe.

Hmm...and with all the "innovation" apparently functionality was removed: "A few are missing, like split toning and tone curve."

I actually LIKE using those....am I the only one?

OH well...I guess I'll go ahead and buy LR6.  I've been happy at LR5, but I'd like to get LR to recognize my canon 11-24mm lens I got this past year....but I guess that will be it with me and Adobe.

I'll keep my CS6, and get LR6, and I guess will be looking at all the new, seemingly VERY good and comparable tools to the Adobe offerings and use those as needed.

It was nice knowing you Adobe.

I have just upgraded my LR CC to LR Classic CC. Split toning is still there (from what I see it disappears if you go for the LRCC+1TB option)

But the previews - OH MY GOD IS IT QUICK!!
Sometimes these speed improvements last as long as it takes to fill a buffer, but for the moment I am one happy bunny!

Well, while that's disappointing news, it doesn't come as a great surprise. I'll just hang on to Lr 5.7 until I eventually migrate over to On1 Photo RAW 20xx (or Macphun Luminar or Affinity Photo or ...)
