This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom 6.1: Why don't I have Dehaze feature?

My expensive Lightroom standalone does not get the updates that the CC does, even though it is still the current version, i really expected this after finally deciding to use it :(

All other programs i used got updates until a new version came out, this feels so cribbled being unable to do the things that is advertised, dehaze, autofill, upright etc

At least Adobe could update along CC until a new standalone version is made, that would make the investment seem logical and worthwhile!

So you have on the same Computer LR CC and LR 6? Is this correct?

LR 6 gets the same exact updates that the CC version gets. That is as far as camera, lens and bug fixes is concerned. What it doesn't get is Feature updates/upgrades.
If you are having a problem updating LR 6 to 6.7 then go here and manually download the update.

I have the standalone LR6, since my network is extremely slow and unstable (living in a forest) - i do get the lens updates, yet also advertisements for the feature updates, which is terribly annoying since i cannot use them, and thus seem to have to wait ofr LR7 to get them, for which i will gladly pay - what is frustrating is buying a software that gets outdated after a few months, for no reason at all since it still gets the lens updates (takes a good day to get those, since download interupts regularly)

Since you are using the Stand alone version you should uninstall the Adobe Creative Cloud app as you don't need it and actually shouldn't be using it. That will stop the constant adds about new feature that the stand alone doesn't get and stop the constant paging to the Adobe servers.

Bookmark these 2 links.
The one I posted above for updates. The second, below, for if you need to reinstall LR 6.

The standalone LR6 get the camera and lens updates regularly, while those of us who pay the monthly/annual subscription get to 'beta-test' the new features that you will get in LR7, when the bugs have been sorted out. ;)

Oh, that actually makes a little bit of sense, although i wouldn't mind betatesting those features myself :)

​This is a harbinger of the future.  Unless you agree to fatten the corporate banks accounts via what amounts to a month protection for continued bug laden and/or crippling crap upgrades, just get use to it.  The competitors are smelling blood, and opportunity and are offering real customer support and serious concern to earn new and happy customers. 

My $0.02 as a long time frustrated perpetual LR user,  whom like the rest of the sheep have been driven become profoundly piss-off being constantly cut-up in a drive to force all into a monthly line for shearring.

THANKS!! I have been holding off Adobe from my computer for years, and only because Aperture and Picasa and LightZone all died had to shift to something else for managing my photos - in so many ways it feels like a step down and i wouldn't have bought it if not for the standalone. Still sadly seems there is nothing else for both managing and editing images for mac :(
