Do NOT Call Lightroom Classic a Classic.

I was using Lightroom, the newest one the whole time for Years but then couldn't figure out how to duplicate a 0.50+ EV to all 333 photos. I see all the other videos and internet article postings show to use Lightroom Classic.

Wow, all the features and ease of use, Quick export of all 333 are all there!!

Preserving Metadata with what you want to preserve. No way Lightroom Classic should be called Classic.

Lightroom Classic should be called Lightroom and the new Lightroom should be called something else!!

The new Lightroom is so none feature rich it's bad.  PSD is super complex compared.

Agreed. We had this exact discussion 5 years ago when Lightroom CC (Cloud) first arrived. Sadly, we've ended up with constant confusion between the Lightrooms for many newbies.

Yep, and constant describes it so well. Despite the aim for feature parity set out at start, it's a long way off still.

If it weren't researching how to bring up the EV easy, I would've never known. My orthomosaic drone shots were shot at -1.3 EV making it too dark. I had to bring it up for inspection but doing Ctrl+V on all the images, I was certain I'm missing something but wasn't.

not only are you years behind, we had this discussion a long time ago; but we can't do anything about this anyway (we're not Adobe, we can't change the name of the software)

I'm absolutely with you.

And as others already said, we discussed this over and over ... and Adobe was pretty resistant to advice

Haha. Memories of very heated discussions on this and other fora many years ago when this change was first made. That ship has sailed and the marketing folks at Adobe have clearly won over the engineering folks as they went for the most confusing naming scheme that is still constantly tripping up people. So many people accidentally subscribe to and install Lightroom Cloudy and end up utterly confused why everything is missing and not working as it should.
