Lightroom Classic CC – Lightroom Classic CC is the program we use in the online and private classes.
When Lightroom Classic CC was introduced, Adobe added new tools to make precise color and tone-based selections for Local Adjustments. You have the option to use the adjustment brush, radial, or graduated filters to define a rough mask, then refine the selection via the new Range Masking options found at the bottom of each Local Adjustment panel.
With Lightroom Classic CC, Adobe has created a high performance application suitable for powerful processing systems and higher resolution monitors.
Lightroom Classic CC uses local file storage on your computer with either an internal or external drive. It is file or folder based and is for those that prefer to edit from their desktop computer. You will need to understand how the catalog works in Lightroom (which we will go over in detail in the class). You will learn to manage your images and use the most comprehensive editing capabilities of the Lightroom choices.
Organization is based on the image files and their meta data and keywords. When you subscribe to Lightroom Classic CC on Adobe.com, you will need to choose the photographers plan which (at this writing) gives you access to Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom CC and Photoshop. There will be options for photography storage to choose. If you are just starting out, the lower level of storage plans should be sufficient. You will be storing your images on your own internal or external drives. The storage plans are used if you upload images to store in the cloud on Lightroom CC.
Either way, you can only get these programs through the Adobe subscription program. You can find more details on the subscription at Adobe.com.
