... and Owning up to it.
It’s now been almost 9 months since Adobe dropped the “subscription” bomb on all of us. Lightroom 6.14 became the last perpetual licensed version, and only a subscription based license would be available going forward.
I - like thousands of others - joined in a public outcry over the consequenses for the average photographer and Lightroom user. Not only was the price going to at least double, but you are schakled to your subscription fee if you want to continue editing your images and access the map module. While that all sounds very bad, my real worry was the renaming and signals around Lightrooms future with the phrase "Classic" added to it's name. That indicated that Lightroom Classic was to be put on pasture and the new Lightroom CC would be the star going forward. You can read about my thoughts on the matter in my article: R.I.P. Lightroom
