Big Changes Coming for Lightroom: Lightroom CC 2017 vs. Lightroom CC Classic

(Updated October 20, 2017 to address additional missing features in Lightroom CC.)

Today Adobe is announcing big updates to its Lightroom software and photography plan. Are you ready? Take a deep breath, read through the options below and – here’s the important thing – know that you all of your options are good.

What is Lightroom CC 2017?

Lightroom CC 2017 is a brand new offering. Adobe created it for the evolving needs of today’s photographers. We need editing software that:

  • you can use to edit anywhere
  • is intuitive to use
  • runs on the most powerful image editing technology. The same technology behind Lightroom and Photoshop powers this new anywhere app.

Lightroom CC 2017, Lightroom CC Classic

Lightroom CC 2017 is substantially the same whether you use it on your computer, your phone, or your Android or iOS tablet. If you use it, your photos will be stored in the cloud – and you have the option to download them to your computer also. In addition to offering a desktop app, you can also use a browser-based app – simply log in to Lightroom from whichever computer you are using.

This option works for me for so many reasons. I love that I can load photos onto my iPad when I’m not home, edit some, and then pick up where I left off when I get back home to my desktop – all without needing to synchronize, export, or do anything.

Just like the “old-fashioned” Lightroom, you can organize your photos using stars, flags, and folders. In addition, you can create albums to subdivide your folders.

As far as editing, Lightroom CC 2017 offers most features you are used to seeing in desktop Lightroom. Curves, Split Toning, and Camera Calibration are some that I’ve found to be missing. Also, if you use the mobile version for tablets and phones, you won’t find the Healing Brush or Upright tools.

The photos stored online are full resolution and automatically backed up. This solves many problems for those of us who are short on hard drive space and are concerned about off-site backups for our photos.

A cool new feature is its Sensei keyword tool. Lightroom will automatically keyword your photos with common terms like cats, mountains, ocean, house, etc.  (Facial Recognition technology isn’t a part of Lightroom CC yet, but I suspect it will be coming soon.) You do need to be online for this tool to work.

Sensei is a helpful tool for sure, and it’s also fun to play with. Here are the results from my photos after searching for “cat.”

And here I searched for “water.” See how it picked up rain also? My ocean search brought up a completely different set of photos.

In addition, you can create an online gallery to show off your photos. This is a great option for budding professionals.

Finally, you can easily take photos from Lightroom to Photoshop CC for further editing.

One major drawback to this program is that you can’t (or I haven’t found a way to) export photos with watermarks. That’s a dealbreaker for me. The workaround is to open a photo in Photoshop from Lightroom, size the photo, and apply the watermark there. However, that’s a lot of steps for something that you can do much more easily in CC Classic.

What is Lightroom Classic CC?

Lightroom Classic CC is the version we are all used to. Your photos live on your computer. In addition to the Library and Develop modules, you also have Map, Book, Slideshow, Print & Web.

Lightroom Classic CC’s big news with this release is that’s its faster. In particular, you can generate previews to view photos much more quickly. This feature alone is a huge timesaver! To take advantage of it, Select “Embedded and Sidecar” from the Build Previews selection of the File Handling panel when you import your photos.

This option didn’t slow down my import process. And, when I clicked on each photo to view it in Loupe view (zoomed in), I didn’t get that annoying “Loading…” message while waiting for the image to snap into focus.

This new version of Lightroom also opens more quickly.

Finally, the Local Adjustment brush’s AutoMask feature, which was already good, can now be configured to create its mask based on color or on tone. This is a great level of control. To select the hands in the image below, I used the eyedropper to click on the color I wanted to select.

What About Standalone Lightroom?

Lightroom will no longer be available to purchase outright after an unspecified but limited amount of time. Lightroom 6 is the current standalone version and it will be gone soon. Support for it, including support for new cameras, will end in 2017.

This means that you will have to subscribe to Lightroom from here on unless you want to stick with Lightroom 6 for the foreseeable future.

I know that some of you will balk at this, and I understand. However, keep the price point in mind. $9.99 isn’t much, especially given all of the subscriptions that we pay for these days: Netflix, Spotify, etc. With all of the features you get, the price is worth it for photographers of all types. Remember that Photoshop itself used to cost hundreds of dollars. You’d have to subscribe for three or four years to equal that cost.

Also, you won’t need to purchase Elements after this. There’s no sense in using Elements when you have full Photoshop at your fingertips. And yes, I am working on a Photoshop class for you! Not to mention an update of my Lightroom class.

The Lightroom Mobile Camera

The mobile version of each of these versions comes with a fabulous camera. In the camera’s Pro mode, you can:

  • Shoot in Raw on iPhone 7 and up (DNG format)
  • Access exposure compensation
  • Change shutter speed
  • Change ISO
  • Change white balance
  • Control the depth of field in your photo
  • Take HDR photos
  • See exactly which parts of your photo will be in focus
  • See an overlay for blown out areas

The green overlay in this photo shows me the parts of the image that will have the sharpest focus. The dotted lines show me the blown out areas.

Lightroom CC 2017, Lightroom CC Classic

My only complaint about the Lightroom camera is that it takes an extra click to access than the device camera app. I wish I could make a shortcut from the Home screen on my phone for easy access. I haven’t taken a photo in any other app in the past two weeks!

What is New with Photoshop CC?

Along with these Lightroom updates, Photoshop CC has some new features also. The one that I’m most excited about is that you will be able to access Lightroom photos from the Start screen in Photoshop – no need to open Lightroom first.

What Am I Going to Do?


I WANT to use Lightroom CC 2017. I love the idea of the speedy cloud-based interface. However, I’ve got to be able to export photos with watermarks. Also, I’m not in love with the way you download photos to your computer. I’m going to write more about that tomorrow.

For a while, I’ll use both Lightroom CC 2017 and Lightroom Classic CC. The benefits of using LR CC across devices are fabulous. I suspect that at some point, we won’t have a choice between the two, and we’ll all be using the cloud version. In the meantime, I predict that LR CC will grow to be as full-featured as LR Classic CC – it will have all the editing options, hopefully. And I hope that the downloading and exporting options expand also.

If you want to use them both also, you’ll need the Lightroom Classic plan.

If you want to be completely on the cloud, give the Lightroom CC 2017 plan a try. 1 terabyte of storage can hold many photos!

What will you all do? You know that Lightroom is a necessity for me. It’s not a question of whether I’ll upgrade, but which program I’ll use long term. But that isn’t true for everyone. I’m especially curious to hear from those of you who have been resistant to upgrading to CC so far.

    I’m sticking with Lightroom 6. I just upgraded from LR 3 to LR 6 and from PSE 9 to PSE 14 last year. Clearly, I’m clearly not an early adopter. I don’t want to pay monthly for a program that I don’t use professionally and that if I stop subscribing will no longer let me edit or print my photos. I also don’t want to use Lightroom on an iPad or an iPhone. My Canon 7D dSLR uses a CF so mobile access and wifi connection is not something I will use. I also don’t plan on upgrading my laptop with Windows 7 anytime soon so I’ll be ok for the next few years. Maybe by then a different on premise software will be on the market.

      I totally get it. And there are lots of Lightroom competitors out there. Some of them do have one-time payment options. But the fact is that software is more profitable on a subscription basis. Developers work all year developing and subscriptions support that model better. I suspect that, as time goes on, it will be harder and harder to find non-subscription based software.

        I totally get that shift in the software industry, Erin. I work for a software company. But I really personally prefer to own things that I’m going to have long term, not rent them. So I’ll hang on as long as possible in Lightroom 6 and keep my eye out for alternative softwares in the future. I was on Lightroom 3 for 7 years so I should be good for awhile.
        Or maybe I’ll just stop editing photos and print them out as is like “regular people”. LOL

    Hi Erin, I stumbled across this page whilst I was in search for anyone that may be trying to create a workflow like what I am thinking about. Which is to have both Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic in my everyday workflow and here is why. I have a my MacBook Pro for my main everyday system and usually always import my shoots from SD card directly to external LaCie hard-drive and reference from there so that I keep my internal space tidy and also have the ability to open my raws or jpegs in any of the programs I might have should I wish to cook up an edit differently. But with the new Lightroom CC I see that it is totally totally awesome to not have to plug in my external hard drive just to work with what I shot the day before and can cull, rate, do some light edits and see that away from my Mac onto my PC at work, or my iPhone or any other similar gadget. What I’d like to do is have the ability to do more advanced edits in LR Classic when there is a need and have that sync with LR CC. As of now, you do see LR Mobile show you smart preview’s of your LR CC in LR Classic.. so in a since you can do it.. just wondering why I haven’t seen anyone else looking to do the same thing.

    • Erin Peloquin October 27, 2017 at 1:33 pm - Reply

      Hi Jon-Rico. I like your idea, but I’m not sure it will work. The new Lightroom mobile does not allow you to sync back to LR Classic. Not that I’ve been able to find anyway. Have you tested this?

  3. Marilyn K. October 23, 2017 at 3:33 pm - Reply

    Thanks for your in-depth analysis Erin! Like many, this doesn’t thrill me but I see it as the wave of the future for many companies. I’m willing to bet that they will discontinue Elements eventually with Photoshop readily available. Maybe if they came up with a cheaper price point if you signed up for a year, it would make it easier to take. Yes, the monthly price isn’t a deal breaker but…

    Any theories as to why they left out Curves, etc. from CC? With all the presets, I’ve accumulated/bought (yes I wish I wouldn’t have), I hope Curves is added back in. Maybe an ulterior motive to get us to use Photoshop. In your breakout comparison chart, it doesn’t show you can print from CC and I wonder why that would be…seems very basic. Will any LR templates I’ve accumulated still work in both CC and Classic?

    • Erin Peloquin October 24, 2017 at 9:11 am - Reply

      Hi Marilyn! These are great questions! You are right – it’s the wave of the future.

      I think that Elements will be on different track for the time being. Adobe hasn’t mentioned this in the press calls, but they invest every year in technology that makes the Organizer better. That positions Elements as a competitor to the new Lightroom CC. This year, the Organizer works faster and they’ve integrated the Sensei technology that makes searches on common terms (mountains, cats, dogs, house, city, etc.) possible without tagging. This technology is available in LR CC but not Classic.

      I could be wrong, but my gut tells me that Elements will be purchasable outright for the next few years at least.

      As for the left out features (curves, split toning, calibration), I have a theory, but it doesn’t come from Adobe. They need to save upgrades for coming releases. In a few months or next year, Adobe will be able to announce a big upgrade that includes curves, for instance. Also, the features it has now are mostly equivalent to the other mobile editing apps out there. It might not have made sense for them to add all of the technology at first when mobile editors are used to a set group of features. That is purely speculation though!

      True – you can’t print from CC. You can, of course, save to your hard drive and print from there. I suspect that this is because most people don’t print from home. I don’t – it’s cheaper for me to print at Mpix than it is for me to keep my printer maintained and stocked in ink.

      So, your templates won’t work in CC, but they will definitely still work in Classic.

      • Marilyn K. October 24, 2017 at 1:56 pm - Reply

        Am I correct that LRCC will NOT be using the folders I’ve set up to organize my photos on my hard drive…that they are all lumped together and the Sensei tool without tags that I’ve created will find what I’m looking for? Do you think Sensei intuitive enough to find a “zinnia” among my photos?

        I’ve read others’ analysis of this change and it’s pretty clear that pros and non-pros aren’t happy. As far as your theory on the left-out features, I think you’re spot on.

        • Erin Peloquin October 24, 2017 at 2:30 pm - Reply

          You are absolutely right that CC won’t use your folders. Not sure about whether it will find a zinnia – flower definitely, zinnia, probably not. Did you upgrade to Elements 2018? If so, the Organizer has the same technology and you can test it.

          You can keyword your photos with zinnia, or any other flower type, rather than creating a zinnia folder. Or you can search for all photos taken in January, 2017 that you added keyword zinnias to. Not having the folder structure was a big shock to my system at first, but if you aren’t saving them on your hard drive anyway, the keyword and filtering tools work just as well.

          The good thing is that Classic still works exactly as we expect it to, for as long as we have it.

          • Marilyn K. October 24, 2017 at 2:59 pm

            I don’t have a separate folder for each flower type…I just keyword tag each photo in a general “flower” folder as you mention and as you taught us in your wonderful class.

            I haven’t upgraded to 18 yet but will look into it. I keep jumping back and forth on whether to take the leap to PS or not. Decisions, decisions!

            I just want to be clear on LRCC…you can still add keywording in addition to using the Sensei function? If not, there goes all my facial recognition keyword tags…how can you find photos of one particular person then?

            Thanks for taking the time to answer all these questions by the way!

          • Erin Peloquin October 25, 2017 at 9:49 am

            Oh, yes, you can definitely add keywords in CC.

            CC doesn’t have Facial Recognition, but your previously recognized facial keywords would carry forward to CC. I just tested it. I also suspect that CC will have Facial Rec soon. I don’t know what soon means, but I do know that this is important technology for Adobe.

            But this brings up a good point. I don’t foresee transferring my existing catalog to CC at any point in the near future. I might start fresh with CC sometime. But given the size of my catalog and the terabytes of photos I have, it doesn’t make sense for me to put it all in the cloud.

            At a minimum, I would use CC and Classic in tandem for a while. And I don’t want to scare you. While I suspect that everything will move to the cloud eventually, I would be surprised if it happens in the next year or two. I don’t think you need to feel pressured to move to CC immediately.

            And honestly, I think you would be able to figure out PS pretty easily. Most of the tools that you use in PSE are in PS and work the same way. If you are already paying for PS, might as well use it.

            You know I love answering these questions! It’s a chance to geek out! 🙂

          • Marilyn K. October 25, 2017 at 2:32 pm

            Good idea to not transfer your catalog…I didn’t think of just starting new with it.

            It looks like everyone has differing opinions on Cloud storage. In your experience with Adobe’s, have you had and security breaches or any other issues?

            Can you edit a photo from LR to PS and back to LR in LRCC?

            I’ve taken some mixed media digital courses that use PS in the videos and I agree that I don’t see that I’d have any problem making the switch from PSE to PS.

          • Erin Peloquin October 26, 2017 at 8:23 am

            I haven’t used cloud storage much. Adobe did have a security breach once – I had to change my password. No fraud appeared. I’d like to hope that they are more breach-proof because of it. Maybe.

            And yes, you can definitely take a photo from CC to PS and back again.

          • christi November 7, 2017 at 4:46 pm

            oh man, they are taking away folders too? why? Do millenials have no references to filing cabinets?
            Relying on robots to autokeyword my photos seems like just throwing all your printed photos into a shoebox, shaking it and then dumping them on the floor.

            Why do they think all of us want that? Why is this the wave of the future?? I already don’t like it in Google Photos and Amazon Photos. It’s so messy. All that scrolling and scrolling to try and find something.

            I realize you all are picturing me in a cardigan with a walker shaking my fist at those darned kids for walking on my lawn! LOL

          • Erin Peloquin November 8, 2017 at 9:55 am

            I reacted exactly the same way as you did! But then I thought about it and realized that keywords work exactly like folders, only better. Keywords let you have multi-dimensional folders. So for instance, you could always search on all the photos taken of Joe/Yellowstone/your dog on a given date/week/month. You don’t lose anything by not having folders, except that you do need to change your thought process.

            And you aren’t relying on robots, although they can help. You can create your own keywords, just like you would create your own file and folder names.

            I’m not sure that they think that everyone wants that. It’s more an issue of making organization easy in the cloud. Cloud storage isn’t always compatible with folders.

            And no, I’m not trying to convince you that your opinions are wrong! I love the thought you’ve put into this. I just want to make sure you know all of your options. 🙂

    Thank you for the good information. CC 2017 sounds good as far as cloud storage and sharing across Apple devices, but my internet is very slow where I live. Sometimes waiting for iPhone photos to cross over to my iPad or iMac is very frustrating. I’ll have to upgrade from my old LR to the Classic CC. If I ever get fast internet I’d need to know if CC storage can be increased from the 1 TB to 2 or 3.
    I”ve been using Elements for a long time and am so comfortable with it, I wonder if moving over to Photoshop will be difficult?

    • Erin Peloquin October 23, 2017 at 10:03 am - Reply

      You won’t need internet full time to use the CC product. The photos do load onto your computer so that you won’t need to wait until they upload to the cloud before editing. The main point of being connected is so that Adobe can check your licensing status every so often.

      I haven’t seen the pricing for increased storage, but I’ve got to think it will be available at some point.

      I also think the transition from PSE to PS will be easy. The tools that you are used to work the same way (for the most part) in full PS as they do in PSE.

      Good questions!

    Thanks for the breakdown, Erin. So both the new Lightroom CC and Classic are available through the CC subscription? That makes it easier / more affordable for you to use both?

    I believe I previously posted this in another area of your Website so here it is again: The changes and restructuring of Lightroom (Lr) by Adobe sounds like a mess and a lot of confusion — at least it would be for me. As an old guy of almost 75 years, who doesn’t shoot much any more, I plan to pass on all of these Lr “opportunities” presented by Adobe and stick with Antique Lr 6 which does all I need (and more) for my photo editing and organizational needs. As long as Antique Lr 6 will run on my iMac(s), I’ll ride that horse to the end along with my more than adequate Photoshop Elements 15. Adobe has likely picked my pockets for the last time. Yep, sour grapes.

    thank you so much for the explanation! one question i have on the LR cc (cloud based version of software) are we able to import our purchased presets, like we can use on the desktop version? i have the trial version of CC on my computer and couldn’t see where to do that. the editing portion of the software seems a lot simpler, maybe because of its streamlined look?

    • Erin Peloquin October 20, 2017 at 11:39 am - Reply

      You actually can install presets and create them. The problem is that they won’t all work as you expect because of the missing features. I’ve actually found some other missing features – I misheard, I guess, on the press call. Split toning is missing, Curves is missing. Those are both likely to be used in your presets. You can try them following the white circles in this screenshot. (I blurred out the faces of people I don’t have photo releases for.)

        found it, thank you! OK i’ll dig in further and see what i work with. This is so hard to decide what to get… i’m drawn to the simplicity of CC, but yet the cloud based storage and the clunkiness of saving to my computer is off putting. please keep us updated as you work through your own process?! it would be nice to see how after say 6 months, a year how your thoughts have changed. thank you again!!

        • Erin Peloquin October 23, 2017 at 9:50 am - Reply

          That’s a great idea! I just put it on my calendar to follow up in 6 months. I’m already leaning towards Classic, but I’m thinking that CC will be great for vacations and travel.

    i think im a bit confused.i currently own light room 5 and for what I need am happy with it. Is there some point that I will not be able to use this product without the subscription. Or I will be able to continue to use it, and just not have any update. Thanks

    • Erin Peloquin October 20, 2017 at 11:24 am - Reply

      No. You can continue to use Lightroom 5 for as long as you want. You purchased it. You won’t have updates, as you said. A problem might arise if you shoot Raw and get a new camera in the future. It’s possible that LR 5 won’t read new Raw files.

    This is so helpful and thorough. You are so skilled at breaking things down in a very comprehensible way. Thank you! I’ve been watching from the sidelines for a while now in terms of the advances in LR CC vs LR6, which I use. I always knew it would come to this. I haven’t touched PS in years and think I have elements 8? Yikes. But maybe this will force me into a productive shift. I resist only on principle, really. I get angry about being forced to do a subscription–but that’s clearly not a battle I can win so there’s not much use whining about it. My problem now is just overwhelm…if I make the switch to cc 2017 it will be a lot of organization and new info take-in. Good thing you’re making a class for that!! 😊

    • Erin Peloquin October 20, 2017 at 11:22 am - Reply

      Awwww, thank you! I agree – I think we have to go with the flow here. Yes, Adobe might listen if 50% of their customer based walked away, but I just can’t do that. Lightroom is a huge part of my daily workflow. Compared to other things in my life and our society that are worth fighting for right now, a $10 subscription really is a molehill.

    I am not happy with this move. I love the the standalone LR 6. I am not interested in learning Photoshop at all. I currently use LR6 with a few things in Elements. I don’t like bring forced into a subscription.

      You aren’t the only one. It doesn’t surprise me that Adobe did this, and I’m ok with it only because I am ok with subscriptions. The digital world has been moving that way for years. I remember reading 15 or 20 years ago about the definition of an “app” that would be available on a subscription basis. I didn’t even understand what an app was at the time, but these “apps” were going to revolutionize computing. I get it now.

    This is difficult. I am not a hateful person by nature but Adobe has caused me to hate what they have done with Lightroom. I’ve owned and enjoyed all six versions of Lightroom. I have no need for Photoshop or mobile or clouds or subscriptions. Yet Adobe will force me to use and pay for all. I think probably not. Won’t need upgrades to 6 for a couple of years. Maybe Macfun or someone else will come along and create better software. Very sad.

    • Erin Peloquin October 20, 2017 at 8:28 am - Reply

      I know. It’s not necessarily consumer-friendly, especially for those that don’t upgrade regularly. Who knows? Maybe by the time you need to upgrade from 6, Adobe will have changed courses.

    Similarly to Jessica, I can’t always afford (or make it a priority) to upgrade or subscribe every month/every year. I much prefer having the option to purchase a stand alone platform that will last me at least a few years. Not only that, but I live in and travel to areas where wifi/cell service is not always available or reliable. I was just debating picking up Lightroom to complement my PS Elements. Forcing folks into subscriptions leaves me with a bad taste. Guess I’ll either be going without or picking up 6 in the near future…

    • Erin Peloquin October 19, 2017 at 10:36 am - Reply

      The good thing is that you don’t need wifi or cell service to use LR CC. You only need to be connected once a month or something like that to confirm your license. Totally get it about subscriptions. 🙂

  13. Jessica October 18, 2017 at 9:56 am - Reply

    Currently I have and use almost exclusively Lightroom 6. For me, I like to purchase something and then own it. Even though the 9.99 price is great, when things get tight financially, my subscriptions are the first things to go. That said, I’ll probably upgrade to the classic cc next year. I use an old version of Elements when needed, and having access to full Photoshop will be awesome. I think 2018 will be my year to learn more about and get better at editing. 😉 I currently do all of my editing on my big beautiful desktop so the mobile options aren’t getting me… yet.

      You are welcome! I hear you about subscriptions. There is so much I’d like to subscribe too, but they aren’t all in my budget. You are right that Photoshop CC will be awesome, especially if your Elements version is very old. Can’t wait to see what you do in 2018!
