Hi,

I am running Lightroom CC 2015 V 1.1. I avoided upgrading my New MacPro when I found they had changed the import module. From what I understand that has now been corrected in this current release. I am running Yosemite V 10.10.5.

I have a few questions:

Will the Adobe CC installer overwrite my current LR installation or will it install another copy? Will it copy over all of my setup preferences?

How do I get the installer to install the latest version of PS CC without adding another installation that will eat up HD space yet still keep my PS 2015 CC preference setup?

I have been told by a fellow I know that works with both Intel and Apple that El Cap is not yet ready for prime time and to wait a bit longer. I will be staying with 10.10.5 for the time being. Any problems with either this latest version of Adobe CC LR or PS?:disgusted:

All of my catalog data is located on an external Thunderbolt 2 external RAID 1 array.

Will the new version of LR need to convert my LR 2015 1.1 catalog?

Thanks!

You are overthinking it. The CC Cloud app in your top bar will let you upgrade both and it just updates the current CC version you have. I'm running Yosemite on one computer and El Capitan on the other. Either is fine. El Capitan locks down the ability to stop Photos from auto-launching, but there is a command to run now that works. I find both stable, but Yosemite seems a hair better which is why the iMac is still using it. Both computers have LR and Photoshop CC on them they are fine.
