Lightroom Classic CC 8.0
« on: October 15, 2018, 09:36:33 am »

Hi,

New version of Lightroom, still wondering why they even bother increasing the first number with this release: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/help/whats-new.html

Regards,

David

good that you posted the topic. I was about to do so myself. It will be interesting to collect user experience here with this upgrade as it accumulates.

It's merely a rounding up. I'm sure there must be a reason for calling it 8.0, but don't imagine that I know what it may be, and I don't really consider it an upgrade in the way we've understood it before. In fact, you can open your 7.5 catalogue in 8.0 without any catalogue upgrade, and you can open the same catalogue again in 7.5 without any impact.

I scribbled more here but I have liked what they've recently done with LR Web.

And that may explain the rounding up.

This happens so seldom. How does the process version change work? Does it automatically select 5 for new imports?

Doesn't let me sign in with the app. It's been annoyingly asking me to sign in almost every time I open it on desktop, phone, or tablet as of lately (upgrade to Mojave?). But now doesn't let me sign in at all... I even changed the password, at their request, still...

And it appears it is not because of the wrong password or that I initially forgot it. When I enter a wrong password, the message is different:

I have used this when having CC App issues but I don't want to be responsible for messing anyone up. You will have to re-install LR and PS. The catalogue was fine and pretests were all there. I did this about 2 weeks ago and had to fix my Topaz links and a few plugins in both LR and PS.         

Read carefully and back everything up.

You will be installing a new PS anyway. Todays updates come with PS 2019 (version 20) and plugins some of my plugins are missing.

If anyone is using Jeffrey Friedl's plug-ins there are updates for LR8.

Before uninstalling LR and ps, try uninstalling the cloud app (which you show) and reinstall it.

Can you sign on to adobe in the browser?

I upgraded to version 8.0 on Windows 10 desktop with no problems; via the Adobe Cloud app.

The reason I used the cleaner is because the CC app on my iMac only kept telling me there was an update. When I tried to it just a at 0%. A re-install didn't work but it may for this situation.

I also upgraded without problems via the CC app. It seems a little bit snappier. The new HDR Pano feature is welcome (and it has worked well in an old problematic image of mine) but, yes, few new features for a new release.

I'll have to pay attention to the snappier part.

Scrolling in Grid on this end (Mac OS) does seem snappier with far, far less gray preview thumbs.

Adobe Bridge seems minutely more responsive as well.
