but is this the new lightroom gui/interface ?
just because in some videos on this channel lightroom cc 2018 looks like 2015(version 6) and in others video it looks so weird

There is no Lightroom CC2018. The successor of Lightroom CC2015 is called 'Lightroom Classic CC', and there is a brand new application called 'Lightroom CC' (no year designation). Very confusing, but that's the way it is. The video above is about that new 'Lightroom CC' application.

Yes, the local adjustment tools (Adjustment Brush, Radial Filter, Graduated Filter) always used a mask. That's how they work locally. But now you can 'fine tune' this mask with the new Range Mask option in Lightroom Classic. That works very well and very fast. And you can sync it over different images, even when the images are not identical but just similar! That is because the range gets recalculated for each image.

If you are already on the subscription model, I don't see any downside of going to the new version of Classic. That is what I dd. Maybe someone else sees a risk.

If you are already on the Photography Plan that previously gave you access to LR6 and Photoshop but which now gives you LR Classic, Photoshop CC 2018 and 20GB of cloud storage with Lightroom CC is there an option to switch to the Lightroom Plan for the same price i.e. £9.98? I am not a big photoshop user but could really use the 1TB storage. Sorry if this is a daft question but I'm very new to this.

There are three offerings from Adobe.
  1. The Photography Plan w/20 GB at the original price but now including PSC,LRCC and LR Classic.
  2. The Photography Plan as above but with storage beginning at 1TB for ~£10 per month per TB in addition to the original price.
  3. The LightroomCC plan: Only LRCC and 1TB of storage for £9.98. With this plan you do not get PSCC or LR Classic

Thanks for your reply. I will try out the 20GB CC offering tomorrow, see how I get on and take it from there.
