    Yea, LR loaded way slow. And when I opened the newest Photoshop it took forever to open (first opening of PS 2018).

    Just so I can inform my photo club what is actually happening with LR:
    Am I right in this summary.
    The current LR will be called LR classic going forward and a newer LR incorporating more cloud storage will come on stream as an upgrade to classic/continuity IRA ,,??, I mean LR which you will be leaned on for $19.99 a month.

    Questions.
    Will this newer version of LR+ 1T cloud be foisted upon users or will there be an option not to get it.
    Will LR classic be dropped by Adobe eventually like a hot apple aperture.

    There is a new Lightroom CC, 100% cloud based. $9.99 a month included 1tb of cloud storage.

    There is the new Adobe Photography package for $9.99. It includes the new Photoshop (2018), includes updated Lightroom CC that is now renamed to Lightroom Classic, and includes the NEW Lightroom CC. And includes 20gb of cloud storage. So the old photo plan is the same, and includes the new cloud based Lightroom.

    There is a new Photography package for $19.99 that is the new normal package, and 1tb of cloud storage.

    What is going away is the CD version of Lightroom. They have not listed a last sales date for it. But they have said they will stop updating it for newer cameras.

    Ok that makes sense. To clarify the 100% cloud Lr standalone would require a constant internet connection. ( would be my assumption).

    In the process of updating the standalone version to 6.13 which includes support for new cameras.

    Todays update they were supposed to add raw support for D850. Maybe be some others in it as well.

    To clarify, so there's no misunderstanding. The $9.99/month plan is still in force, it includes the following:
    • The new LR CLASSIC, (desktop version)
    • The new LR CLOUD version
    • The new Photoshop (desktop version)
    • Bridge Desktop Version
    • Camera Raw
    • Extension Manager CC
    • Extendscrip toolkit CC
    • 20 gb online storage at Adobe
    • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC for mobile (I know this is included because I have it installed on tablet, but not sure about additional mobile apps)
