Lightroom Classic CC 7.3

Adobe has released Lightroom Classic CC 7.3, bringing performance enhancements to the desktop-focused photo cataloging and editing application. The update improves performance on machines with 12 GB of RAM or more, adds options to create collections from folders and from a photo pin in the Map module, adds a new filter to the Library Filter bar for filtering images based on edited or unedited status, and ensures the Info overlay won’t disappear when moving between modules.

Late in 2017, Adobe split Lightroom into two not-at-all-confusingly-named apps, with Lightroom Classic CC anchored to the desktop and the cloud-based Lightroom CC working across desktop, Web, and mobile spheres. Jeff Carlson wrote an overview of Lightroom CC (see Why Lightroom CC Is a Big Step Up from Apple’s Photos, 15 December 2017), and has full coverage of the app in “Take Control of Lightroom CC.”

You can get Lightroom Classic CC as part of a Creative Cloud Photography plan (which also includes Lightroom CC and Adobe Photoshop CC) priced at $9.99 per month for 20 GB of storage or $19.99 per month for 1 TB of storage (see this comparison of pricing plans). Unlike the previous Lightroom 6 app, there is no option for purchasing just a standalone version of Lightroom Classic CC. ($9.99/19.99 monthly Creative Cloud subscription, free update, release notes, 10.11+)
