I can't seem to upgrade my cloud on lightroom and i can't delete files... After the new upgrade, my working files are all mess up. When i export, a lot of files are not exported in high resolution! Pretty unhappy about this mess as i have a deadline and this happen.
I can't seem to resolve this issue of the cloud and my files missing! Best part, i wanted to upgrade my cloud service, ITS NOT AVAILABLE in my Region! Than why made it as a requirement when i can't even access or upgrade!

Go back to Lightroom classic, and double click on your catalog (Users/yourhome/Pictures on Mac) to open it. If you haven’t moved the location of your images, I Lightroom should find them.

Nope. Seems like something is wrong here. Files exported are just a mere 1. 2mb. I can't seem to remedy the problem and importing the catalogue require cloud storage, which I don't understand why and I can't seem to disable it...

Stop trying to import the catalog, just either go back to your old Lightroom or download Lightroom Classic and find your most recent catalog and launch it!

Hi Carlos,

I'll try to go back to LR classic. Where do I download the LR classic? I don't see it in my Adobe cloud launcher or am I missing something here.

Mac or Windows? If Mac, go to Creative Cloud in your menu bar and click Apps, scroll down to Lightroom Classic and click install. If Windows, maybe someone else can help?
