I have no idea why we need to download two versions of Lightroom, CC, and Classic, just to make it work across the board. Please just make the one app, and so that we dont have to go between apps wasting storage and space and time just to complete simple tasks. Thank you.
If you only use Lightroom Classic CC, how are you going to use it if it isn't downloaded and installed on your computer? Many users have been converted to Lightroom CC and prefer it. Frankly, I don't particularly care for it. I play with it a little, but haven't been one who has really found a real need for it. But it does fit the bill for a certain type of user. If you don't want to use Lightroom CC (the cloud-based version) then don't use it. That's the beauty of it. You have a choice.
I switched from Classic to CC... I will never go back. The problem is: "open your mind to the future". Do you realy need to edit your picture with 2.000 options?? I have about 100k images edited also on mobile (from raw in cloud). 1300 pictures just edited for a fashion show in about 4 hours and shared the link to the customer with HD/Raw quality. Enjoy your self and free your time!, have a nice Job!
