At MAX 2017, Adobe rebranded their desktop Lightroom application (previously known as Lightroom CC 2015 & Lightroom 6) to Lightroom Classic.
Following Adobe's LR rebranding, you may be confused about the differences between Lightroom Classic CC, the new Lightroom CC, and the older versions of Lightroom you may have previously used Palette/ Monogram with.
Here are a few key points:
- Lightroom Classic is the functional successor to Lightroom CC 2015 and Lightroom 6.
- Existing Monogram and Palette compatibility with Lightroom CC 2015 & 6 has been extended to the new Lightroom Classic.
- We will continue to support users with Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC 2015; you are not required to update.
Lightroom (CC 2018 & Later)
The new Lightroom—without a "Classic" designation—is an all-new, cloud-centric version of Lightroom released at MAX 2017.
Monogram and Palette do not integrate with this version. We recommend using Lightroom Classic instead to take advantage of the most current Lightroom experience with Palette and Monogram.
An integration with Lightroom (CC 2018 & later) requires Adobe to add SDK support, similar to what exists with Lightroom Classic & 6. If you want to see this integration, please let Adobe know here.
Lightroom Classic Localization
Fixed as of December 2017. Please update Lightroom Classic to version 7.1 or later if you're affected.
Certain Develop module functions will not work when using Palette with Lightroom Classic CC 7.0 and 7.0.1 in the following languages:
- Chinese (Simplified)
- Chinese (Traditional)
