Oh, Capture One is awesome. You should try it anyway - it's actually better than Lightroom. It definitely has more control over white balance and color adjustment. The problem is.... everyone has everything in the Lightroom library!!!

If it is true all versions of adobe software will go subscription only - my first action will be to give Capture One a try. If it is even close to a reasonable replacement it's Adobe Goodbye!!

I use Lightroom for developing, not for organizing my pics. I don't use metadata or LR's search function. I DO give folders and files meaningful names. That helps to find things using windows explorer.

I did it this way because it was easy and convenient - but it also makes me independent of LR, and that will be a big benefit if I decide to switch to another program for developing my pics.

I do the same out of ingrained habits in organizing other sorts of files over the years. I'll admit I never took the time to embrace LR's organization tools.

I believe you.

I keep trying to like Capture One - I always upgrade when a new version is released, but eventually I always end up back in Lightroom. But, then, I love Photoshop, and Lightroom talks to Photoshop (and other apps) better than any other raw converter I know.

I'll keep at it - maybe one day I'll be a true C1 convert. :)

Ok, so back to the original, question, does anyone know of who to contact at Adobe, so I can write an email to tell them not to make Lightroom 6 a subscription license?

Better not do that, in case they never considered it. Might give them ideas.

The really sucko thing about this move at Adobe is that you have to have at least Windows 7 installed. So Vista owners are forced to have to upgrade and reload all their software. Which I have refused to do. Fortunately I do not use Lightroom and unfortunately CS6 is no longer supported. Can you say ......

That's not entirely the case. Just tonight my CS6 updated camera raw and one other module, can't remember which. I believe what Adobe has said is that no new features will be introduced in CS6 but it is still supported.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

There was literally no reason to continue using Vista after Win7 came out. And now the newest Vista machines are over 5 years old and due for replacement anyway,.

Development on Windows Vista was complete a YEAR before the first iphone was released. There have been SIX iterations of the iphone released since that software was released. I don't think it is at all unreasonable for a software company to drop support from a OS that was literally created before there were smart phones...

Hell, the 5Dc was barely released when that OS came out.

Smart phones were available way before the iPhone, like 10 years before the iPhone.

The first mass market adoption was in 2006 with the blackberry, not 10 years before.

The Palm Treo came out in 2002. Palm and WinCE PDAs go back to the 90's.
