    Lightroom 6.0 manual

      Is the lightroom 6.0/6.14 manual different then the manual for lightroom classic cc ?  Where can I get the manual for lightroom 6.0/6.14 ?

          The Lightroom Classic 7 User Guide includes a number of changes made to LR since LR CC 2015.14 / 6.14.  If you literally mean LR 6 (the perpetually licensed version) and not LR CC 2015 (the monthly subscription version), then the LR 7 User Guide will include all the new features introduced since LR CC 2015.0 / 6.0 was released many years ago. (LR 6 didn't receive the new features that were added incrementally to LR CC 2015, just bug fixes and new camera support.)


          Adobe's help site for LR is a mess, and its search function is useless. The best I could find was a PDF for LR CC 2015.6 / 6.6 from 7/26/2016: https://helpx.adobe.com/pdf/lightroom_reference.pdf. Adobe stopped producing PDF versions of its user guides after then and has only resumed recently for some of their apps (but not yet LR).   There may be a Web version of the LR CC 2015.14 / 6.14 user guide, but I couldn't find it after many minutes of searching with Adobe's search and Google.

            Thanks for the quick response, John.  I had found the same manual you found and I've downloaded that.  I also had the same results searching with Adobe and Google.  I guess I'll keep searching, buy a book, go through the manual I downloaded and see what applies and continue to use this forum.  Again, thanks for the response.  BTW, I do have Lightroom 6.14, desktop with perpetual license.

              Hey!   and johnrellis ... do you find it interesting perhaps amuzing that one can pull a PDF of a forum topic but not a paid for product "user guide"? ...from the owners of the PDF machine *A*?   best to you both!

                "Amusing" isn't the word I would choose.  Adobe supposedly has reconsidered and indicated they will be providing PDF versions of the manual at some point.  Please add your opinion to this problem report: Lightroom Classic: PDF for User Guide? | Photoshop Family Customer Community . Be sure to click Me Too and Follow, which will make it a little more likely that Adobe might prioritize this and will notify you when the status changes.

                  Hitting F1 in Lightroom for help and then doing a search in the search box USED to actually bring up useful info but it is practically worthless now.   Adobe really needs to do some work in this area.
