  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Stop struggling with Lightroom! There's no need to spend hours hunting for the answers to your Lightroom Classic questions. All the information you need is in Adobe Lightroom Classic - The Missing FAQ!

    To help you get started, there's a series of easy tutorials to guide you through a simple workflow. As you grow in confidence, the book switches to a conversational FAQ format, so you can quickly find answers to advanced questions.

It will on my 27 inch Mac using High Sierra but not on my Mac Book Pro which has Catalina. Does ANYONE have an idea when Adobe will update LightRoom Classic to a 64 bit rather than the 32 bit it is now. Catalina is 64 bit which is why LightRoom Classic (build 9) and 32 is having so much problems. I am a subscription member also with Photoshop and LightRoom. I went on the Adobe forum today and asked them and got no reply. ... Very poor on their part. Adobe used to have good Customer Support but it is Awful right now. I can burn a disk by exporting the files to my hard drive and them dropping them into the SuperDrive. That is just extra work though..

LR Classic v9 is 64 bit and fully operational operational with Catalina. However, there are incompatibilities both with Catalina and Lightroom Classic that Adobe AND Apple need to resolve. This is not a 64bit problem. LR Classic v9 works fine for me Mojave. IN am waiting on Apple and Adobe to get their respective acts together before I upgrade to Catalina.

There are Security issues with files and permissions in Catalina. Perhaps this is the problem that you have with the Super Drive. Does Apple even support the DVD Disk drive anymore? It has been obsolete for quite a few years and is not longer built in to I Macs and has not been included in MBPs for many years.

Lightroom Classic is, and has been for a long time, 64 bits. If it was 32 bits it would not have problems on Catalina, it would simply not run on Catalina at all.

LightRoom Classic, upon export, still has the option available to burn to a disk. I can't see why Adobe would still continue to put it as an option, if Apple was not going to allow this. The problem is that Adobe LightRoom Classic is a 32 bit program now and Catalina only supports 64 bit. I think!!!! The two of them better get together and get on the same page for its' customers.

No, that's not the problem. Please see the post immediately above yours.

As others have pointed out, Lightroom Classic is and has been a 64bit program. The question that I raise about DVDs is Apple support not Adobe. The technology is outdated and Apple stopped including internal DVD hardware some years ago.
You are right that Catalina only runs 64bit apps. But Lightroom is such an app.
Catalina has "birthing" issues Like most initial releases 10.15.0 has bugs. You may be seeing one. Lightroom Classic v9.0 is also a new release. There are incompatibilities in LR v9.0 with Catalina. Don't expect them to all be fixed with LR V9.1. This "write to disk" issue may be one of the incompatibilities. Apple changed file and folder security with Catalina and this has caused issues with many apps, not just Lightroom.
The current recommendation is to revert to Mojave (MacOS 10.14.6) if you want to run LT Classic V9.0
