Clas­sic vs CC: ver­dict

Amateur Photographer - - Technique -

For or­gan­is­ing an im­age li­brary, LR Clas­sic wins hands down. Be­sides the Al­bums fea­ture, LR CC of­fers min­i­mal con­trol and you can’t even re­name your im­ages; how­ever CC does have its amaz­ing Search bar. When it comes to edit­ing im­ages, both Clas­sic and CC are equally good: Clas­sic of­fers more ad­vanced work­flow op­tions, but CC is slicker, and you can edit video. Of course, CC is de­signed for a dif­fer­ent au­di­ence to those of us who’ve been us­ing Light­room for years. The fea­tures that aren’t there, aren’t there for a rea­son – things like Smart Col­lec­tions, Im­port op­tions, Range Mask­ing, Soft Proof­ing, which are tools that the ca­sual user doesn’t need. As such, for pro­fes­sional and ad­vanced pho­tog­ra­phers and those fa­mil­iar with Light­room al­ready, Clas­sic is still the best choice. For begin­ners, smart­phoneshoot­ers, ca­sual en­thu­si­asts and any­one who wants to edit on-the- go, CC is the friend­lier, slicker op­tion.
