Adobe says they’re still developing Lightroom Classic
After speculation that they would stop developing Lightroom, Adobe has come out and verified future developments on the app.
This week Lightroom was rebranded as Lightroom Classic CC to make room for Adobe’s new cloud-based app, Lightroom CC.
Tom Hogarty, Adobe Product Management Director, has said that although other apps are being developed, the company is committed to continuing its’ classic app.
“We know that for many of you, Lightroom Classic is a tool you know and love and so it has an exciting roadmap of improvements well into the future.”
The announcement comes after last week's unveiling of Lightroom CC, the fully redesigned, rebuilt and rethought version of Lightroom. It’s based entirely in the cloud, utilising the 1TB of cloud storage included in a Creative Cloud membership to simultaneously bring photos to all your devices, and brings it in alignment with other adobe cloud-centric products like Photoshop.
Classic has a wide community of active users which made some a little worried when hearing about the rebranding. To deal with the community’s questions, Adobe has released a FAQ, accessible here.
