By compatible, I assume you mean run natively, without Rosetta 2.

 

Yes, Lightroom Classic runs natively on M1.

 

For a list of Adobe apps which run natively on M1, see:

Thanks John Waller You folks are real quick ... I appreciate that.  Before spending big bucks on the new iMac M1 I needed to be 100% sure Lightroom Classic CC Version 7.3 works on it !

To be clear, @joed22840758, Lightroom Classic has run natively on the M1 only since version 10.3 in June 2021.

 

As @Rob_Cullen says, your version 7.3 is older than that so it will not install on M1.

 

If you are a Cloud subscriber update to the current version of Lightroom Classic to run LR Classic on the M1.

Your post has me worried for you.  Why would you still be using v7.3 when the current version is at 11.2 ?

Do you pay a regular subscription fee?

There was a few unfortunate people who managed to upgrade v6 to a v7 as a 'Perpetual' version, which should not be possible without a subscription.

Can you post a screen-clip of your LrC System Info (MENU: Help > System Info...) that would assist an answer to your question.

And, yes, Version 11.2 LrC will install on Apple M1 systems. (You will not be able to get v7.3).

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.3, Photoshop 23.3, ACR 14.3, Lightroom 5.3, Lr-iOS 7.0.2, Bridge 12.0.1, Windows-10.

I don't need subscriptions.

Then you are 'stuck'! You will NOT be able to re-install 7.3 anywhere. It is working as an 'illegal version',

and yet your screen-clip indicates you have a "Creative Cloud" Licence- very ODD!

Are you sure you are not paying a Monthly or Annual fee to Adobe?

Wow Rob Cullen ... not sure if I should be insulted or amused by your comments !

1) I have a License because I bought and paid for my initial Lightroom version.

2) Because Adobe took my money and issued a License, I am NOT in possession of anything illegal.

3) Perhaps you are in the habit of paying for subscriptions unknowingly, I am not.

Oh one more thing - LR is a phenominal product and much respected, but I am not "stuck" as there are plenty of alternative Programs for photo processing.

Rob Cullen is correct.  You probably updated from Lr 6 to 7.3 when there was a bug  that allowed you to update without a subscription.  see here

https://feedback-readonly.photoshop.com/conversations/lightroom-classic/lightroom-classic-73-profile... 

 

With your new M1 Mac you will not be able to have Lr 7.3 as an install.  You also can not install Lr 6 as it will not install under Monterey or Big Sur as the installer is 32bit.  Essentially you need to get a subscription or change to a different program.  Unfortunately all your RAW edits will not transfer to a different program so you will have to export TIFF/JPG files with edits and start over with any RAWs you want to re-edit.  Also, if you ever lost 7.3 on your old system you will not be able to install your valid version Lr6 as you have Big Sur.   Even if you had a computer you could install 6 on, the 7.3 catalog will not open on 6.  SUMMARY: If your present Lr7 install goes bad you will lose all you RAW edits unless you go subscription.  You should export edited TIFF or JPG as soon as possible.

@joed22840758  So sorry if you felt insulted. That wasn't my intention at all. I merely wanted to state the facts, and I could have used better wording.

You 'bought and Paid' for a licence for Version-6. You do not have a licence for Version-7 as you are not paying a subscription.

@Bob Somrak  has stated the situation very well as it applies to you.

No apologies necessary Bob as no offense taken.  I do believe both Yours and Bob's advice is sound.

Bob, thanks so much for your explanation.

Q - If I purchase the subscription version, will my existing catalogs automatically transfer to the cloud ?

By @joed22840758

No....Lr Classic (all versions) work with local catalogs and locally-stored images. So if you take out a subscription and install the latest version of Lr Classic your existing catalog(s) will be upgraded to the new V11 level and you would carry on as normal. You have the OPTION to additionally sync smart previews of your Classic original images to the cloud for subsequent viewing and editing on synced mobile devices (all part of the subscription), but Classic remains predominantly centred on local storage. 

Part of the Subscription will be the desktop equivalent to the Lightroom Mobile app (called simply Lightroom), which DOES require images to be stored in the cloud, but you are under no obligation to use or even install that version of Lightroom if you don't want/need it.

As Jim Wilde said, your catalog will update to 11.  MAKE SURE you subscribe to the Photography Plan which has Lightroom Classic.  You will probably be very pleased with what is now in Lightroom Classic 11.

Thank you @Jim Wilde Jim and also @Bob Somrak 

Once I get the iMac M1 upgrade, I will subscribe.  You have alleviated my concerns as my worst fear was losing my years of pictures in the transition.

Stay tuned and thanks once again for your guidance.  

PS: Tell the Management folks that long standing owners (since LR4) and retirees should get a discounted rate. 😉
