It’s close to three months ago that Adobe introduced Lightroom Classic CC and Lightroom CC, and scrapped the perpetual license version. And after those three months the confusions still hasn’t subsided. Adobe released a last update for Lightroom 6 in December, bringing it to Lightroom 6.14. And with previous updates, this often caused extra confusion because the update seemed to change the version into CC2015.14, the previous subscription version. This is because Adobe uses every opportunity to give you a trial subscription that you don’t want and didn’t ask for. Just let it expire and Lightroom CC2015.14 will become Lightroom 6.14 again.

Changing the name of the long established Lightroom product has been the disaster that everybody predicted. Internet forums are full of messages of frustrated people, who signed up for the Photography Plan and found out later they signed up for the plan with the wrong Lightroom. So here’s the deal. If you are a long time Lightroom user and you want to continue with the Lightroom you know and love, sign up for the Photography Plan that includes Lightroom Classic CC. And ignore all the email and other promotions that tell you Lightroom CC is the future of photography.
