Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):
I am as new to LR as one can be. How do I know which version LR do I have on my MAC?

Is there a Forum specific for very new users who have very basic questions about navigating around LR, how to display a certain page, how to find the Histogram when you are editing, etc?

Thank you, Tim. As I mentioned I am just learning my way around and and will be using the cloud based Light room..most interested in basic editing. Am not a computer person per se but have to use it in order to process my pics. At this point, it appears most internet tutorials focus on Classic Lightroom..any recommendations for learning resources for the new cloud based Lightroom?
