Another post on my experiences with the newly installed standalone Adobe's Lightroom 6.
As we all know, Adobe has been marketing Lightroom as the all-in-one post-processing tool for hobbyists, enthusiasts and professionals, and up to now I have certainly found it to be an "all-in-one” workflow solution for post processing my images. I have been happy with this , given that the choices for post-processing and file management software are so very limited.
The previous post was about my frustrations with Adobe’s latest move to discontinue the standalone version of Lightroom , and to move everyone to the cloud; thereby effectively locking us in for the future to to grow their profits. Dumping the perpetual license is something Adobe said that it would not do in the past. Adobe is now purely subscription based and, unfortunately for me, it is only a matter of time until an OS upgrade from Apple breaks the standalone Lightroom 6 (LR6) completely.
My current frustration with the standalone Lightroom 6 is not just its lack of development compared compared to the subscription version. It arises from finding that LR6 has basic stability and performance issues that should not exist in the first place, given that this is professional software.
