This definitely goes under the category of backhanded compliment... I opened LR CC last night and almost had a heart attack... where were my collections?  Why couldn't I control the features of export, or what kind of file I edit in PS?  It seemed to be a very consumer-oriented product and I felt that Adobe was abandoning me, or Julianne had had a VERY bad day?!!??  Then I went to JK's blog and saw that there was LR Classic, and all is right with the world again.  I do like the idea of cloud storage in theory, but I would have to be able to organize images myself in order to make it useful.  Also, LR has become such an amazingly strong and robust editor that there are some images that never even come face to face with Photoshop.  Let's not lose that!

""LR" has become such an amazingly strong""... Are you referring to LR Classic or LR CC? You've got to be specific nowadays.. but I guess you were referring to LR Classic :-D

LR Classic CC will slowly fade into history when no new users adopt it. And Adobe is setting the stage for this by not providing a properly indexed support document. Experienced users will keep on using it due to familiarity. But I doubt that the next generation who carry nothing more than a phone as a camera will embrace the Classic version and it will die out just as the dinosaurs did.

They're not providing properly indexed help docs for any of the other CC apps either John - it's not just Lightroom.
