    Potential MacOS X High Sierra - Lightroom 5 problem?

    In the past few weeks, I have helped two people who seemed to have the same problem.

    There have been messages about a special download app for your CC cloud, in case you want to terminate your Lightroom CC subscription. Nobody had seen this app however. Apparently it is available right now: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

    Beware: Lightroom Classic installer deletes Lightroom 6 / CC2015!

    It seems there is a nasty bug (or feature) in the Lightroom Classic CC installer. If you install the upgrade, you would expect that the previous version (Lightroom CC2015) is kept, so you can perhaps first play around with a newly created catalog, or go back to Lr CC2015 and your old catalog...

If you use 'Auto Tone', Lightroom...

    CC2015.4 and MacOS X 10.11.3

    Has anyone installed Lightroom CC 2015.4 on a Macintosh with the latest El Capitan update (10.11.3)? I'm getting constant lockups on an iMac with this combination. I had to go back to CC 2015.3 to solve it. I don't have a problem on my MacBook Air with MacOS X 10.11.2, so I wonder if it's the...
