I was (and still am, I guess) so, so excited about the launch of the new CC. However, I was extremely disappointed to find that there is no local adjustments folder to add custom brush presets. I chatted with an Adobe Support rep and they said that it "may be added in the future" and to post on here.

I cannot believe that I have to post on here asking for Adobe to add a main chunk of my workflow back into Lightroom. I can't be the only one whose LR workflow is affected by the lack of this capability.

With the announcement that a full version of Photoshop will be released for iOS, this seems like an even more incredible omission for Lightroom CC.  This is a critical tool in just about every Lightroom workflow.

This is unexceptable.  I thought I was getting a BETTER, UPDATED version of Lightroom.  This is totally backwards and needs to be fixed.  It never dawned on me that I couldn't use a NEWLY purchased set of brushes on the "new" lightroom. And it doesn't look like things are going to chance anytime soon since this feed is over a year old. GRRRRR.

Scrap better and updated version and replace with new and different version of Lightroom.

For some things it's already much much better than LR Classic (e.g. multi-device use) but it's also very young, so it doesn't have the full feature set yet.

LR Classic has taken 12+ released years plus many prep years before that to get to the current feature set, whereas LR CC has only been out just over a year, so just set expectations accordingly. There's a lot of work to do!

If you need features that are currently only available in LR Classic, and the single-platform focus of Classic is a better fit, then Classic is still being developed and updated frequently. It may be that you're just a little early in switching.
