I am aware there is an update for Lightroom 6 out there... I purchased a standalone version of LR6 and was puzzled to see the update labeled 6/cc October Update. Why is CC in the name? Is this new version even connected with the Cloud version? Just curious in what I will be updating with. How are updates for CC and Standalone versions differ?
The updates for Both are the same.
CC is the name for the Lightroom which comes with Creative Cloud. Lightroom 6 is the same for the standalone version of the application.
If you want to update Lightroom 6 click on help> updates
LR CC 2015.2.1 is updated from the Apps tab in Creative Cloud Desktop.
LR6.2.1 is updated by Launching LR and clicking:
Help >> Updates
N.B. if LR6 is working fine and you don't need the minor bug fixes (e.g slideshow export file naming) then simply stick with your current version.
