I don't understand "protable". If you mean portable, then you might be asking about the mobile version for phones and tablets. That would be the v6.1.0 version that Paul referenced. If you want a version that will run on your PC, then that would be with er Lightroom Classic and Lightroom (cloud service). Both of which require a subscription.Many thanks! For some reason I each time have difficulties to find that latest.
Is there a protable version?
Both Lightroom Classic and Lightroom desktop install on your computer. When you install them you need an internet connection, but you can use them without an internet connection for up to 30 days.Yes, but what if I am without Internet. And besides of that I rather have a program on the drive. And I am used to the program.
You install Lightroom Classic on the PC like you would Microsoft Office. The program goes in the Program folder and the data (Image files and catalog file is stored (by default) in the Pictures folder. Settings and preferences are stored in a system folder. This is not any different from any other app designed to run on Windows. Lightroom (cloudy) is a little different in that the Data (image files and catalog) are stored in the cloud Both versions require a periodic connection to the internet to verify that the subscription is current. But you can be disconnected from the internet for a few months without a program interruption.Yes, but what if I am without Internet. And besides of that I rather have a program on the drive. And I am used to the program.
An app that is is stalled on a Windows PC could be installed on a desktop or laptop. Lightroom Classic does its work locally but can send images to the cloud. Lightroom (cloudy). has a version for the PC or Mac (desktop or laptop) but only works with data in the cloud.I thought Lightroom Classic and desktop are the same.
So if one does not have an Internet connection for 31 days both ones will stop working?
No, they are not the same. Lightroom desktop is also know as 'Lightroom Cloudy', but the official name is simply 'Lightroom'. It's the version that stores the originals in the cloud, but if you have no internet it will simply store them locally until it can upload hem.

Lightroom cloudy will stop working, Lightroom Classic will go into an 'Expired mode', where the Develop and Map modules no longer work, but the others continue to work. The grace period is either 30 days or 99 days, depending on whether you pay monthly or yearly.

More and more vendors are going to a subscription model. Adobe is one of the few that offers a monthly subscription as well as a yearly subscription. Microsoft Office is offered as an annual subscription. Checking in with the vendor is the only way the vendor has of verifying that your subscription is current. This is not a new concept as commercial software has been offered to corporations as a subscription from the beginning.Many thanks! Sounds very complicated (I am somehow used to programs running on the local computer without quitting after a special period or getting a restriction). So I at least need Lightroom Classic (10), that is the only version running on Win being installed like a usual programm on PC or Notebook and which does not need a Cloud or such / Internet Connection (all the time to load images to work on or so).
