    Turn off cloud storage

    markasteele Level 1

      Is there any way to turn off Cloud Storage? As a professional, I use gigs upon gigs of images and only use Lightroom to create DNG backups to store on alternative drives.  This new CC does not work with my workflow and is useless to me.  Is there any way to return to the previous version?

          Yes, just install Classic and ignore Lightroom CC. Lightroom CC is not a new version of the Lightroom we all know and love. It is a completely new app that Adobe named the same causing enormous confusion. Lightroom Classic is actually an update to the older Lightroom 2015/CC that you probably know. Install and run that and it should pick up your old catalog file and work just like you're used to.

           

          Lightroom CC is not useful for people that generate large amounts of images.

              Problems is the LR CC plan doesn't include LR Classic, so there is no direct replacement (perpetual or CC) for LR 6 users that generate large amount of images.  Classic only comes bundled with other products !

                Agreed. People that generate huge amounts of images should not get a LR CC plan, they should get the normal photography plan that includes Classic and CC and just use Classic. They shouldn't get the new LR CC only plan which just doesn't work for pro or enthusiast shooters, the traditional audience for Lightroom.
