I purchased Lightroom a while ago without subscribing to creative cloud although I am a subscriber with Photoshop. Every-time I am prompted to update I am directed to upload creative cloud? Is it necessary for me to do that or is Lightroom covered under my photoshop subscription and I need to upload Lightroom again? Why can I not just upload to the original purchase? I am finding all this quite frustrating. Will appreciate you kind assistance please?
I suspect the update message you are reading is really for the upgrade to either Lightroom CC or Lightroom 6. Lightroom 5 cannot be updated to include the new features. It will require purchasing the Lightroom 6 upgrade or installing Lightroom CC from the creative cloud. If you don't want to do either one of those look in the lower left-hand corner of that notice screen and you will see a button that you can click to ignore the notifications. If you click on that button you won't see that notice anymore.
Thank you so much Jim, that makes sense. Thank you for your assistance and have a great weekend.
