Adobe Lightroom Versions

As of this post there are two versions of Adobe Lightroom

Lightroom Classic CC

  • The SBCC photography program uses Lightroom Classic exclusively.

  • In a nutshell Lightroom Classic CC is the standard Lightroom application where files; including the application, catalog and original images live on the computer’s drive.

  • If you are taking a class at SBCC you should be using Lightroom Classic CC.

Lightroom CC

  • Lightroom CC takes a cloud-based approach where the original images are housed in the cloud and can be accessed from anywhere.

  •  SBCC Photography does NOT support Lightroom CC.

  • If you are NOT taking an SBCC Photography class and you would like a mobile friendly cloud based image editor use Lightroom CC.

Lightroom Classic is available as part of the Creative Cloud Photography plan, starting at US$9.99/month.  

Note: This does NOT include any of the other Adobe applications like Photoshop, Premiere, Illustrator, etc.. To get the entire suite of Adobe applications purchase the Creative Cloud All Apps package.
