Am I able to bring photos from folders on my mac into and edit photos on lightroom classic without internet?
All CC apps, including LR Classic, need to connect briefly to the Internet periodically to verify your license. For an individual annual license, it must reconnect at least once every 99 days. For an individual month-to-month license, at least once every 30 days. See
Lightroom Classic is an offline editor. It always edits photos from local folders, not anything from the internet. However, as others have explained, it needs to verify the license every now and then. So the question is: did you ask this because you get an error about internet connection, or did you ask this because you consider using Lightroom Classic and want to know how it works?
