As I am sure we all are aware, the new Lightroom CC came out today, and I was wondering what is everyone's first impressions.
From what I can tell so far, Lightroom CC has all the same features as the classic and is faster. You can even import the presets to Lightroom CC from Lightroom Classic which was a win for me. I think my biggest worry / problem with lightroom CC is the focus on the cloud.
I can understand the value of storing images in the cloud then being able to edit them from anywhere, but I don't like the ever perpetual cost having all my photos sitting there. Local storage is so much cheaper in the long run than cloud storage for static items. I would say an option to have your most recent photos synced to the cloud and still have the local storage on the back-end would be the ideal for me.
Another thing I just noticed is the lack of export options. Where is the export to flickr (for those of us that still use it)? How about exporting and including a watermark, size changes, etc.? Without this, that is another reason to stay with the Lightroom Classic.
In conclusion, I will be staying with Lightroom Classic for now. Maybe if I want to edit photos on the go (which is rare for me) I will move them into Lightroom CC.
How about the rest of you? Have you tried it yet and do you see yourself braving the cloud?
