  • Lightroom Classic 7.5 and Lightroom CC 1.5 have just gone live, and there's some exciting mobile updates to follow. And the big news... my Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro book has just been released too!
  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom CC desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

Hi, I'm new to Forums so please forgive if I get things wrong. Not sure if I'm even in the right place for this query but hopefully someone will point me in the right direction.
I use Lightroom 5.7 and have, three days ago, updated to Mac OS High Sierra. So far Lightroom has shut down three times... is this what I can expect for the future? Are there compatibility issues between the two?
Thanks in anticipation. Ann

Welcome to the forum. I seem to recall that Victoria has a web article about compatibilities of older legacy versions of LR and High Sierra. Your best solution is going to be to upgrade to LR6.14 (while you can) or get a Creative Cloud subscription. While you are digesting this, I'll try to find and link to Victoria's article.

Thank you so much for your help. I think I will be trying LR6. Cloud based anything is not to my taste.

Just to be clear, the cloudiness of Lightroom Classic basically limited to the name. It doesn't store the photos in the cloud. It's just what they called their subscription software.
