This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom CC: Ability to specify which files should be local only (not uploaded to the cloud)

Hello

Apparently my full CC subscription only gives me 100GB of cloud storage for Lightroom. This is frankly a bit ridiculous because this limitation prevents me from even starting to use the software when I know that there won't be enough space.

For this reason I was wondering if I can use the software locally? In other words: If I put my Lightroom file in my Dropbox and let Dropbox sync it, what happens if I reach the 100GB limit? Will the software not accept any additional photos?

cheers

You can upgrade to 1TB and above. Everything imported will be stored in Adobe's Cloud (with the option to also store locally) so I don't think the Dropbox thing will work.

Thanks for your reply.

The thing is: I don't want to pay for the upgrade to 1TB (can't see the pricing at the moment in my account, bc there is some problem for European customers). I already have the "best" plan available from Adobe. Why does the cheaper Photography plan come with 1TB and the full CC subscription not?

I don't know that, but you definitely cannot use Lightroom CC with only local storage of images. And the images will have to be stored on the Adobe servers, you can't store them on another cloud server like Dropbox instead.

That's a question that has been asked indeed.
