Jeff Carlson reviewed Adobe Lightroom CC for Macworld. With Photos for Mac just released, a lot of Aperture users are feeling quite uneasy. It’s worth reading Jeff’s review to get some idea if Lightroom might be an alternative to sticking with Aperture or migrating to Photos.
Lightroom is available as part of the $10/month Adobe Creative Cloud photography subscription plan, which also includes Photoshop. I’m subscribed to this plan and consider it a really good value. Fortunately, if you hate the idea of software subscriptions, Adobe will also sell a standalone version of the new Lightroom, version 6, for $149.
