I upgraded my mac to High Sierra, and ever since LR 6.8 does not like opening-I have to reopen every time.
Did I miss an upgrade somewhere?

You probably did. The current version is 6.14, which supposedly works with High Sierra.

How do I get the update? I went on the Adobe site and it wants me to do CC. Really don't want the monthly fee.

thanks

thanks Ron, I keep getting put into an endless loop of buying an upgrade from LR5 to LR 6. What I need is an upgrade from 6.8 to whatever is current.
Any ideas there? If I wasn't so old, I would ditch Adobe all together.

herb,
On the page that Ron points to, click on the '>' sign. That will open up a list of downloads for 6.x. Choose the appropriate 6.14 one.

Thanks guys, finally penetrated the maze and LR now opens like it should.

I should really be doing film. I know how to do that.

LR standalone is on it's way out so it is not on the front page anymore. LR6.14 was released on Dec 19 and that was the last one. Adobe is headed down the subscription path. I find that if you use the search option you can quickly find what you need. Also there are forums.

My apologies for not posting directions to that drop-down. Glad to see you found it and have things working now.
