I dont understand Adobe support. There are two software involved. Lightroom and Camera Raw. Is it possible to updated only the Camera Raw software to fully support the 80D files?
Camera Raw is a plug-in hosted by Photoshop CC. If you don't have a subscription to Photoshop CC you can't use the plug-in. (Plug-ins are partial applications that need to be used inside a larger application.) Every edition of Lightroom has a built-in and integral version of Camera Raw which cannot be changed other than by changing the entire application.
I already have the perpetual licence installed and that is the version 6.0. For updates I have to go "help" in menu and check for updates. There is the option I meantion in my post above. I was affraid that with the update Adobe wants to transform my perpetual licence to a payed plan. Not interested about that.
Really? Do you think that Adobe could legally sign you up for a rental plan without your indicating and confirming your agreement and supplying a credit card number? Or do you think a couple guys with bent noses and baseball bats will show up at your door tomorrow to collect the monthly $10 dollars? If you purchased LR 6.0, the price you paid included free updates for the life of LR 6. Updates which contain new camera model support and new lens correction profiles, as well as bug fixes. There have been more than 8 updates.
The update patches for the standalone version and the subscription version are exactly the same; the way in which the update is implemented is determined by whether your LR has been serialized with a valid perpetual license number or you have signed up to a subscription plan. Subscribers receive new features, standalone purchasers do not. Go here and download the update:
