Adobe unveils all-new cloud-based Lightroom CC, rebrands old application 'Lightroom Classic' ...

JEFF CARLSON, DPREVIEW:

Lightroom as we know it is changing today.

Adobe is introducing Lightroom CC, a brand new, cloud-centric desktop application for Mac and Windows. At the same time, the application formerly known as "Lightroom CC" has been updated and rebranded as Lightroom Classic CC. The core Lightroom experience is at the heart of both programs, but they have different strengths and limitations, especially at this early stage of Lightroom CC development.

Let’s unpack what "Lightroom" means going forward.
