At MAX 2017, Adobe’s Creativity Conference in Las Vegas, the company announced new products and big updates. Lightroom CC was introduced, and Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom mobile and Lightroom.adobe.com updates were detailed, in addition to Creative Cloud Photography plan changes and a new Lightroom CC plan.
The company is rebranding the current version of Lightroom CC as “Lightroom Classic CC” and is launching a new Lightroom CC, which is a cloud-based workflow. With a “streamlined” interface, the new Lightroom CC is designed to provide easy access to images on any platform across the company’s range of products, but has a completely different, minimalist look.
Adobe is also changing their pricing for the products, which we outline below. There will be a variety of ways to get access to Lightroom CC, including the standard Creative Cloud Photography plan, one with more storage and one with more storage but fewer bundled apps.
Now, here’s all the news we have about the new changes to Adobe Lightroom CC and other new products and updates.
Lightroom CC + Lightroom Classic CC
Adobe has rebranded one product as it introduces another. Lightroom becomes Lightroom Classic CC, with the launch of Lightroom CC, which Adobe says “is designed to be a cloud-based ecosystem of apps that are deeply integrated and work together seamlessly across desktop, mobile, and web. Lightroom Classic CC is designed for desktop-based (file/folder) digital photography workflows. It’s a well-established workflow solution that is distinct and separate from our new cloud-native service. By separating the two products, we’re allowing Lightroom Classic to focus on the strengths of a file/folder based workflow that many of you enjoy today, while Lightroom CC addresses the cloud/mobile-oriented workflow.”
