sync | Lr Classic to Cc workflow
Wanna make the most of your Creative Cloud subscription?
An All New Lr Ecosystem
A few months back, Adobe rolled out a whole new Lr CC system.
Lr CC was renamed Lr Classic CC. An all new version of Lightroom for the desktop was introduced, named Lr CC. For continuity, Lr mobile was renamed to Lr CC and last but not least, multiple subscription plans are now available.
One of my students suggested CC stands for crazy confusing. I agree, it all can be 'crazy confusing'...but not to worry.
I've got you covered.
This isn't about giving up on Lr Classic and moving to Lr CC.
It's about making the most of Lr Classic combined with Lr CC.
(Note: I do not recommend migrating your full catalog to Lr CC)
Lr CC is a simplified version of the Lightroom we love.
It stores all photos in the cloud. Cloud storage is convenient, but it comes at a cost.
The base CC plan doesn't include enough storage for a forever growing photo library.
The good news...You don't have to choose between Lr CC or Lr Classic.
SYNC will help you understand and make the most of the new CC system, without giving up Lr Classic CC and/or paying for additional cloud storage.
"Lightroom is a fantastic program for editing your photos but it can be a challenge to learn all the ins and outs. Kim has a way of breaking down technical information so that it is easy to understand and you can immediately apply it to your photos. She can walk you through a complete edit, from start to finish, or show you how to apply and tweak a preset so that it works for you. She also shows you all of her tips and tricks, and never holds anything back. It’s like an “aha moment” every time I see her work in Lightroom. She makes it easy, approachable, and fun.”
ON THE GO BACKUP & SYNC TO LR CLASSIC FEATURES
You upload your images through Lr CC on your laptop (or your device).
Your photos (the originals, yes even raws) are sent up to the Creative Cloud for easy access from all devices and safe storage.
Back at your desk, you open Lr Classic and down come the photos you uploaded in Lr CC while on the go.
Organize, sort, edit and more from any device.
Not to mention a back-up of your photos is in the cloud for safe keeping.
(what a relief that would be if your computer crashed, you lost your camera card, or your EHD went missing.
All things no one wants to think about, but it happens all too often.)
The Best of Both Worlds
Since the Lr 'do-over', I've been exploring the new sync features and functions. I'm loving my new Lr Classic to CC Workflow.
I'd love to share it with you.
My new work flow...
Lr Classic is still my main APP (cause it's powerful and it gives me full organizational and creative control). Lr Classic blows my mind daily.
Lr CC gives me easy, on the go, away from my desk access to my work.
(ie from my MacBook at home or my iPad or iPhone while at appointments with John)
I can make quick edits, they sync back to my Lr Classic catalog, save jpegs to upload to my site, Instagram etc.
If I'm away from my desk I can upload direct to Lr CC, then find all my new photos (even the edits I make on the go) waiting for me in Lr Classic on my desktop when I get back.
A basic understanding of Lr Classic is required.
This is not a Lr Classic 101 class.
"Learning to use Lightroom from Kim has completely transformed my workflow and the way I edit my photographs. Her enthusiasm for Lightroom is contagious and I can honestly say that editing in Lightroom has become one of my favorite aspects of photography. I started her class as a complete Lightroom beginner and was overwhelmed with the thought of learning a new editing program. It’s so easy having her videos to refer to over and over again as you go through the process. She helps you begin wherever you are and explains things in a way that makes so much sense to me — never giving you more information than you need but somehow there’s always plenty to learn regardless of how many times you repeat a lesson. I can’t recommend her classes highly enough! ”

I not only learned to use a new program I gained confidence.Kim is such an amazing teacher , and made it all so much simpler to learn in her detailed and enjoyable classes . Understanding the program went from frustrating to fun !”
I’m a still & lifestyle photographer.
I’ve been teaching classes online since 2010.
I love sharing all things photography, including (and especially) Lightroom. In fact, I’ve taught thousands of students from around the globe to learn and love it.
It’s such an incredible program. I want YOU to love it too.
I’d love to have you in class.
