The main issue with Lightroom CC (apart from the monthly cost) is the forced upgrades that will likely contain bugs (and may not work perfectly with my OS version) and future forced updates will eventually no longer work with my computer. Standalone version for me.
Yet more inaccurate information about Adobe products. You are never
forced to do an upgrade. I have old HDD's running ancient versions of LR quite happily for archiving reasons, Adobe even give you a simple button option to download the latest version of a program that will run on your OS. You can even install a new legacy OS on a new HDD and Adobe will automatically tell you what the youngest software version will run with it and allow you to install it, how many software companies maintain that kind of legacy capability?
The screenshot below shows the versions I can download to my current OS, earlier OS's give me more options all the way back to caveman times.
I can understand people not wanting to pay a monthly fee for a multiple of reasons, but inaccurate info about the way it actually works drives me mad, where do people form these bulls!t opinions from and post them as facts?
