Lightroom CC/7 and how Adobe sees the world

Let’s see:

  • No updates for Lightroom 6 after 2017
  • “Lightroom CC” becomes “Lightroom CC Classic”, is available only via subscription (*cough* ransomware *cough*) and its future is uncertain
  • Adobe introducdes a new “Lightroom CC” that has flaws like subscription model, no printing (why on earth somebody should print a photo???), forces you to upload your pictures to Adobe (ever heard about photogs with slow internet?), problems with keywords, no map module, no tethering, no multiple catalogs, and so on…

I see sales for Capture One Pro skyrocketing. Or look for alternatives like RawTherapee, Darktable, ACDsee,…

My personal answer is: Adobe, rot in hell! I will stop buying Adobe software.

Just think about this: some time in the future Adobe will “concentrate on the cloud version” and stop developing the “Classic” one – simply to reduce development costs and to increase profits from storage options. Simply say no to someone who helds hostage years of your work.
