I just purchased a subscription to CC to update Lightroom on my laptop. If I upgrade my Lightroom 5 catalog to a Lightroom CC catalog will it be compatible with Lightroom 6 at my school? I know LR 5 catalogs have to upgraded for 6, but do CC catalogs have to be downgraded for 6?
Thank you so very much!
It will not upgrade the catalog again as they both are the same version. It is just that lightroom 6 is the standalone version of the Lightroom and Lightroom cc is the creative cloud version of the Application.
Typically the catalog evolves with every major cycle of Lightroom, and Deepak is right – Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC 2015 do have some important differences, but definitely do share the same catalog format... and those catalogs are interchangeable.
This may of course change in the future with Lightroom CC next year, presuming it has a major new 2016 release.
