Why has this changed? Now no longer any better than any FREE app available. I have a subscription and have been automatically updated to the new version. This has been DUMBED down for the average user. What about us serious photographers that use Lightroom like we used our old darkrooms??
How do I get back to my original Lightroom?
It sounds like you installed Lightroom CC, which is a new application with more limited functionality. What you need to install is Lightroom Classic CC. That is the next generation of the Lightroom version you are used to.
