Hello, 
I've just bought Lightroom CC. As a human being, not able to understand there is 2 different software and Lightroom CC is so a alpha version. Missing :
- printing
- map
- real keyword
- face recognition
- Drag and drop

Finally we are totally dependent of unknown roadmap for future feature.

It reminds me adobe carousel but is most expensive by far!!

Yeah, it's very early days at the moment. It has enough features for many new users, but many existing photographers are better sticking with Classic for now.

We need the ability to print in Lightroom CC. Also need ability to add Watermarks in Lightroom CC. I'm paying $120/year just for these two essential features, as I had to buy the bundle with Lightroom CC Classic and Photoshop, which I don't use.  That's very unfair to customers.

Thank for this link. 
Really interested to know in what kind of brainstorming someone decide to remove all those essential features. And in what other kind of brainstorming someone else decide to validate.

Anyway, some others feature are missing:

- Ability to export with drag and drop
- Ability to share not only to facebook (On Mac OS, share on mail, share on other app, ...) but other services...Ability to export to 500px, smug mug  or allow Api or allow plugins 
- If lightroom CC is for low end user, please add familly sharing or family plan. I do want to pay 20$/month for my library. and another 20$ for the library of my wife. and an another one for my young girl. Really
- Full directory and sub-directory support on both LR classic and LR CC
- Please remove adobe creative cloud app
- Please allow 100, 200 and 500gb plans
- Please remove photoshop

Please do not make a sequel of adobe revel. Please! 
you did it tooooo complex, thing are near not understandable for us. We want to take pictures, manage them. Not to understand what you are doing.
We are not all professional but enthusiast. And plans are too expensive.

Just to be clear, they haven't removed these features. They're still available in Lightroom Classic, as they always have been. They started from scratch with LR CC, so they're adding back features one at a time, and the votes on feature requests here help decide priorities.

I know, it's not simple because they're a huge company and most of the time there's not a single person making the decisions. That means the decisions can seem a little crazy from the outside at times.

The short version is:

* If you have a fast internet connection and you want to store your photos in the cloud so you can easily access them on multiple devices, you want Lightroom CC.

* If you've used Lightroom for years, or you have a slow internet connection, or you love managing files on your hard drive, you want Lightroom Classic CC.

* If you want a bit of both, you can use both together, but there are a few pitfalls to avoid.
