Where are you getting Capture one Pro for £30 - it's £235+vatCapture one express is free for Sony RAWs and capture one pro is like £30 for Sony RAWs, so for me its the cheapest option. Also LR6 is no good for IR photography which I do a fair amount of as well. I used to use DXO and gimp for that. I think I may have found a workaround using profile creator and LR6. we'll see....
LR6 is current version and no way even as an upgrade is that legitimate and could potentially put your computer and your identity at risk!!!Price seems too good to be too. I would not buy one.
Where does it say Adobe have a "commitment" to anything?Time will tell but Adobe are/were committed to continuing to offer both a perpetual license & a CC version of LR
The choice might be Lightroom CC or nothing.I think they will give you the choice
Excuse my hignorance - but what is CC please?
I have only ever used the editing that came with the camera, so still use Nikon Capture NX2 it is now (with whatever the last top up was, that I had to get Rob in NPS to do for me, because I simply didn't know how to get it onto my computer!!!)
I didn't realise just how much of a minefield all this was.
WOW!!! Or should I mean, BIG DEAL.....The one thing a lot of folk don`t know too, is if you have the Adobe CC monthly deal, you get a Portfolio.
WOW!!! Or should I mean, BIG DEAL.....
Once you are on the internet you are HOOKED. Let's examine that a moment....you have to pay monthly to use the system to process your own pictures, and you can store your pictures on their portfolio....and if you can't pay for one month for some reason? Or you decide to change......I wonder what happens to your pictures then?
Where do I sign?
It's also a way of getting you to pay for software YOU DON'T NEED in order to get what you do need. In other words to get LR on CC you also need to pay for PS. If you could get LR CC only at a pro-rata price it would be a good deal.CC is way of getting you to buy software without you ever actually buying it. You pay every month and if you stop, you lose the software.
I bet you can for a certain length of time - but my bet is they will hold you to ransom in 5 or 6 years tie and make you buy another one....called something else, no doubt, people laugh, but I still use Windows 98 on my big computer out the back - it still works and it has never been linked to the internet, so is totally free of any 'bugs'. I use it for doing the books, writing and other low power requirements. It doesn't owe me anything now and I can't see th epoint of paying £1000 for a modern confuser to do the same thing!When I bought Elements and Lightroom, I logged into the Adobe site with my Adobe ID in order to download them. It would be my expectation that I could log in again with the same ID and download as often as necessary.
If you have an x-t2, x-t20, x pro 2 or x-t10 then lr5 isn't supported. Otherwise, it should work fine. I've been using 5.7.1 to edit my x-t1 files for ageshow do u do it ? LR5 fails to preview at least 30% of the files !! i have to import as DGN then move to lightroom !! am i doing something wrong ?
Please post your thoughts on the upgrade after you have used it for a while. I have LR5 and it works fine but is there anything new in LR6?Having assumed that LR7 is a way off, I finally bit the bullet and upgraded LR5 to LR6 for £64.00. Took me ages to find a working link, Adobe's cc hard sell is very frustrating!
