I bought Macphun Luminar and I bought a 1 year prepaid Adobe CC subscription to let me learn Macphun and all its excellent features yet still have access to LR and Photoshop. This gives Macphun a year to add lens correction, distortion control and a organizer. They list these features as coming so if they come and it works well then when LR CC comes up for renewal I can let it go. But right now I really like Macphun it is just messing a few things I really like and need . 

 

Now why didn't just buy LR6 well its been out a long time so I wanted to wait to see if LR7(or what ever they call it) comes out over the next year so I can buy the newest version without having to upgrade, and yet I do not have that trickle of money coming out of my account that drives me nuts. At least I feel like I own it for at least a year now, I know no difference but in my mind it seems better.

 

Yes I kicked the can down the road sort of. :P

As I have stated many times, I can't stand Adobe due to my business dealings with them for a decade and for the buggy garbage they have sold me over the years.

Only, when they are the last option on the planet, will I consider them.

I use NIK
and MacPhun
And still use NX2

Works for me until further notice.

Luminar is more like the nic plug-ins where. Why Im still on adobe is for is because of the organizer. Also at the moment, I use PS for the texturizing that Im doing.

The cloud I also use. I can show clients online their proofs. My iPad is synced with my windows LR. And I have a second website using the cloud. Luminar will be office sometime soon on Windows. And now, onOne has a product that can do a lot of the cloud linking using google drive or drop box as the sync mechanism. But, that will be an extra cost monthly.

Thanks, Dennis.

"Sucking money out of my wallet every month is not for me!"

 

That is what was bothering me it just didn't sit well watching month after month of seeing Adobe show up on my bank statement. Yes it was only $11 but it still annoyed me now I won't see that for a year if LR6 is updated then I might go that route but if Macphun improves on an already good start I might go that route either way I have a year to figure it out now. I truly understand that I just paid the same for a year of CC but now I don't have to look at Adobe on my bank statement for a year.

Sucking money out of my wallet every month is not for me!

 

You are not alone in how you feel about Adobe, Art.  However, while PS is not the most intuitive product out there, I haven't had any bad experiences.  Hitting a snag or two has taught me a lot about photography in general and PS in particular.  Vive la difference!

 

Before I chose Adobe CC, I worked out the cost of a stand-alone versus the annual cost of subscription.  The results were pretty close.  The deciding factor was that the subscription gave me updates.  It's worked pretty well until the D850 came along.

 

I haven't tried MacPhun yet because Nik is still available to me.  Sadly, I suspect that Nik will die as soon as I upgrade to High Sierra (BP has already upgraded, so perhaps he can pass along a status report?).  When this happens, I will give MacPhun a serious trial.

 

While MacPhun doesn't have Nik's control points, I like what I see.  I also like that it works as either a stand-alone or as a plug-in for PS and LR.  I would already be trying it if we didn't have an accelerated bathroom reno, plus helping our son buy his first place.  :)

Lightroom and ACR have lens modules built in already - with your Fuji RAF files they are applied directly from the original Fuji data embedded in the EXIF as the file is initially rendered meaning you can just forget all about lens corrections and edit your images knowing they look the way Fuji intended them to.

I don't get the issue with Adobe CC being subscription based.

 

We pay monthly for our phones, TV, internet, mobile data etc etc and if we stop paying we stop receiving the service - an extra £10 per month for computer based software, cloud data and (incredible) mobile software seems entirely reasonable.

 

For me its all about workflow, convenience and feature rich editing. Importing into Lightroom automatically saves my files into a database where I can find them easily, it automatically creates a second copy should something go wrong with my main drive, it automatically applies Fuji film simulations to my raw data, it automatically corrects all my Fuji lenses based on Fuji's embedded computations and it even automatically ejects the card so I can pull it out without the Mac moaning that I haven't right clicked it. Lightroom offers me 80% of the tools I need to create images the way I like - however it handles plug-ins smoothly creating copies so I'm not affecting original edits - that makes up a few more percentages and it is fully integrated into Photoshop meaning a key-press fires it across, a key-press creates separate edit files as I go along and a key-press gets it back into my library for future use. 

 

It is seamless, fast, intuitive, immensely powerful and costs the same as a decent bottle of wine.

 

I fully understand that there are a myriad of other options for creating our images but I can't think of any that are complete workflows - for me that is king.

 Sadly, I suspect that Nik will die as soon as I upgrade to High Sierra (BP has already upgraded, so perhaps he can pass along a status report?).  

 

The update is working well and all my software continues to operate - to be fair HS is more of a background tweak than a full blown new OS.

I originally hesitated on the Adobe CC plan, but I've been very happy with it over time.  Lightroom Classic (the new name) is working well for me.  It does a very good job with D850 images.

 

Lightroom CC - the new program - is geared to a completely new mobile workflow.  It is very different in that images are housed on the Adobe Cloud rather than on your own hardware.  Don't install this version unless you are sure it is what you want.  You certainly don't want to have it try to upload your entire catalog to the cloud.

I'll be sticking with LR Classic CC.  

 

While I have nothing against cloud-based subscriptions (actually, don't mind them at all), Adobe's invitation to "install" the new Lightroom CC is a sneaky way to pry more money out of subscribers.

 

I would seriously consider MacPhun if Adobe ever gets rid of LR Classic CC.  I might even have to do it sooner when the Nik Collection finally dies (thankfully, appears to work in High Sierra).   :)

That's where I stand, if I hadn't been on this site I am not sure I would have caught the difference initially LR CC Classic vs the new version.

 

To answer BP I try to have as few things coming out of my account as possible automatically as possible. We truthfully only have our phone that comes out automatically we do the rest online manually.

If one was considering going to some other software. I would think, you would need to get the other software soon. Not because I bleive adobe is going to pull the plug. But because I would have to learn the new one, and having a TB or more, will take a while to switch over. Unless all the other softwares will have a conversation process, you would have to reapply all the edits.

If adobe is truly planning of dropping desktop for cloud only, that will be s total mess. Up until this point, I was ok with the subscription. And even though I dont have LR6, its rather concerning that adobe dropped stand alone when they said they will maintain it, means I cant really trust their word when they say they will keep the desktop alive.

LR Classic CC IS a monthly/annual subscription thing Mark... the so called upgrade for LR6 is a "replacement" of LR6 with the new pay as you go LR Classic CC.

Depends. If you downloaded it before yesterday, you have the desktop version. It will let you know to update to classic. Its pretty easy. Just look for the classic in the name.

Okay..more confused..here I go..Been using LR since the first Beta in 2006, right OD. I think we started the same time. I don't mind paying $10 a month for LR and PS as I use both for my monthly photo/video work which pays the Adobe bill. But now I am confused as on my MacBook, I have LR Classic and CC or vice versa. Here I go again, asking my family..will  be charged twice? I have the iPhone 8+ and iPad Pro and wanting to do work with both. Cloud storage I am familar with and use.

 

Asking my family what is going on?

LR Classic CC IS a monthly/annual subscription thing Mark... the so called upgrade for LR6 is a "replacement" of LR6 with the new pay as you go LR Classic CC.

 

Until I actually do the upgrade, I guess I'm still using Lightroom CC.  I've had no problems with the subscription, but I haven't used the cloud part of it. 

 

I have 4 big issues with this roll out:

  1. Huge confusion over product names.  From what I have read, my version of Lightroom CC will become Lightroom Classic CC.  Meanwhile, the new product becomes Lightroom CC.  I think it's deliberate.  Go ahead, Mark.  Click that Install button and we have you!  An extra $10 USD per month.  That is just plain underhanded. 
  2. Adobe has placed the above Install button in between the Update links for PS, LR Classic CC and ACR.  If users aren't paying attention, they may mistake it for an Update button and click it.  Then they either pay $10 USD per month or Adobe uninstalls EVERYTHING.
  3. Cloud Storage is a lesser irritant.  Dropbox already gives me more cloud storage than I presently need.  An added benefit is that it lets me store photos and import them directly into Lightroom.  As long as I can continue to import from Dropbox into whatever version of LR that I happen to be using, that's OK.  However, if I have to choose between LR and Dropbox, it might be goodbye, LR.  I have US clients, and Dropbox allows me to quickly share documents and reports.   I don't think that Adobe's Cloud will let me store and share documents; and I don't think that it will give me 1TB of storage space at the same low price.
  4. I never used Lr as a stand-alone, but the decision to abandon LR as a stand-alone raises a question of trust.  If Adobe can break a promise like that, how can they be trusted on anything going forward?  I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

For me, Adobe is on Probation.  We'll see where this goes over the next few years.  <_<

No, the $10 a month includes the two new versions.

On your desktop run the classic, and remove the LRCC. And run LRCC on the mobiles. Share (sync) the collections you need to access from the desktop.

Right now you can share(sync) up to 20gigs.

Note, although adobe and some others say you can do the same on LRCC as you can with classic, thats not ture.

Thanks, Dennis.

PJ, from what I've read, yes, you would be charged for both Lightroom CC (new product) and Lightroom Classic CC (old product).  I think the confusion is deliberate by Adobe; and down right underhanded.  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:

Dennis, are you sure?  Seriously?

 

Is this for a trial period; or some introductory offer for existing subscribers?

Yes, Im sure. I only pay the same $10/m. Before all this, I have done what they have been saying now. The only difference was the mobile apps were not on the desktop.

Now LRCC is part of the photographer package, and you have a fix cloud of 20gigs. LR classic still syncs, and I still see them on my iPhone/iPad. If I make edits on them, it showed up on classic.

If you decide to go cloud based, the the price will go up. But, DSLR users should not go that route.

Thanks, Dennis.

One more, LRCC, across the board doubt support plugins.

It doesnt have all the things you can do with LR classic. No matter what Adobe says.
