Hi,I bought LR6 as a one-off purchase rather than the CC version.
However, it's a bit cumbersome to start LR6 as I now have to open the Red "Creative Cloud" icon, wait a little while for it to connect to the internet, then go to the Apps tab and then select LR6.
With LR5 I just had a desktop icon for LR5 I could click directly and it would start straight away. Can I add an icon for LR6 to my desktop?
Yes. On windows navigate to:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom
Select lightroom (the application) and right-click and choose Send to Desktop.
On Mac OSX launch Finder and go to:
Macintosh HD >> Applications >> Adobe Lightroom >> Adobe Lightroom.app
After launching the app right-click (control-click) on the dock icon and choose:
Options >> Keep in Dock
