Does LR CC need an internet connection, or can I use it in the field (literally)?
Maybe I should stick to LR5/LR6 ?
An internet connection is required for the initial install and registration.
In theory, LR CC only needs to connect to the Adobe servers once every 30 days to confirm that your subscription is still valid.
In practice, my copy of LR CC calls home and asks for a login far more frequently than that even though my computer is constantly connected to the internet.
