    I've not got the new lightroom option so I've only got the normal version installed.

    That said I have at last uninstalled the former version of lightroom I had (5.something) as my system was getting confused which to use at times (interestingly even trying to set lightroom CC classic to default it still kept using the other lightroom - until I removed it of course).

    If you click on the drop down at install, you'll see that they give you an option to Uninstall the old versions. The box is checked by default- wasn't that nice of them?

    Edit----you click on the update button, then click on advanced.

    Anyone tried the new version yet and have any thoughts? I'm honestly more excited about the updates to Lightroom Classic supposedly making it faster.

    I've been considering getting Photo Mechanic for speed, but we'll see how this plays out.

    Tried LR and PS both, haven't seen a lot of differences yet.

    I looked to update when I started the post but nothing was available then. If I get time tomorrow I might check again.

    I've been subscribing to CC for a few years now. I never realized there was anything going on with Lightroom because I just keep it up to date even though I never use it.

    Unless you're maniacally buying new gear, get the standalone LR6, take the last update and hold. Adobe's competition presently offers lots of options and there are bound to be even more when/if you add new cameras/lenses to the shelf down the line.

    I’m heavily leaning towards investing in capture one at this point. I’ve bwwn doing a lot of research on it and I’m really liking the looks of it.

    Going to wait until I replace my computer in a few months and then give it a go

    Those who updated, are you still seeing 2012 as the current processing method? the notes for the update say it should be "Process Version 4 (Current) under Camera Calibration"

    I'm also not seeing the two new color and luminance masking...

    Nope, mine shows the new release. On another note, though, has anyone experienced REALLY LONG load times when opening PS?
