I'm on 10.11.1

to me this is a BIG tick (proportional to the size of the image it covers)


I'm using the same version I have been using for months and about says it's 6.2.1, thats all, so Im not sure how to find out more about what type it is. Didn't do this before.

It tells me that if I log out from adobe then I will lose the ability to use it

I preferred the previous import UI because to me it was pretty obvious how to use it, and that's despite my not being very good at grasping new things. I don't think that makes me a luddite, which is a disparaging term.
Luddite (n.) any opponent of industrial change or innovation. I think this a descriptive term I did not use it disparagingly and did not intend it to be taken that way. It certainly was not directed toward you. There was a groundswell of complaint from those resistant to change or innovation in LR6.2.1. Adobe responded to that by promising to bring the old import dialog back in 6.3.

LR6.2.1 was released around October 5th So, this is not the same version that you were using in any month before the last one. If you prefer the previous import dialog, just follow my recommendation to roll back to 6.1.1 using Victoria's instructions.
How do I roll back to Lightroom 2015.1.1 or Lightroom 6.1.1? It won't affect your ability to use Adobe products by reverting to the old version.

My import still won't work at all on my iMac. I'm using CaptureOne at present to get around it.
In what way does it not work? Does it Crash? Are you on OS X 10.11.0? Did you try rolling back to 2015.1.1?

OK then, cheers

I meant of course that I haven't downloaded anything as an individual download except as done through the update feature so Im at a loss to know how it could be anything but a standalone version

I don't absolutely need to roll back to a previous version - I just don't like the new version, but I can live with it - but thats not my issue

My issue is about getting an email saying my trial is about to expire and not knowing what to do about it as I don't have a trial version AFAIK and have previously put in my serial No. when I first installed it but can't find where to tell it that. e.g. there is no 'registration' in the help menu or inprefs - I don't know where else to look

All the images are greyed out in the import dialogue, so is the import button. Don't have time to muck about with it to be honest, so will just wait for the next update which may fix it. If not I'll stick with CaptureOne it seems pretty stable now.

I would simply ignore that email, unless you are having problems with Lightroom itself saying it's expired. These emails are generated automatically, about one month after you've downloaded Lightroom. At the moment you download it, it's officially still a trial version, because you haven't put in a serial number yet (you do that when you run the installer). What probably happened is that Adobe didn't make the connection between your download and your installation and registration, that's why they sent the email.

I've been playing around with C1 too, but not because of any LR issues.
I like a number of points about it, but it seems to be missing a lot of core functionality for my tastes/uses.
Though I'm finding it IS rather nice to have a secondary cataloger & editor/converter that wont write into DNG (more due to past obstinance, than good reason IMO) - for purely playing around with.. Even if the cataloging functionality is still a work-in-progress. And indeed I do find it to be stable, more or less. I had major crashing issues after a fresh OS re-install to SSD, but re-re-installing C1 fixed that.

OK thanks for that
