Does this mean that I am stuck between one or the other?

Lightroom seems... how can I say, "weak", even boring compared to all the features and tools in Ligtroom Classic. Further, what happens if I work on Lightroom mobile, on my desktop computer (with Lightroom classic) and my laptop (with Lightroom)?

I do not understand. Does this mean that I can only work with my phone camera/photos and my laptop or my phone camera/photos and my desktop computer?

 

Thank you.

I guess you are referring to this particular question and response?

My understanding is that they do not recommend installing them both on the same computer.  LrC on the desktop with Lr on a laptop is fine.

There really is no problem using both on the same computer. You just should not point them to the same storage location (which works if you simply use the defaults for those). You also shouldn't migrate your Classic catalog if you do this but simply use the standard sync mechanisms in Classic. If you migrate you run into problems which is I think what this document might refer to but otherwise it is perfectly workable.

Jao, "QuoteYou just should not point them to the same storage location (which works if you simply use the defaults for those"

Just to be clear you are referring to local storage of original image files.? see the screen captures.

Yes exactly. You should never set these to the same location.

I have both versions installed on my PC. I don't use Lightroom (for the cloud) all that much. I play with it a little. I occasionally take pictures with my iPhone and use the cloud system to allow the images to be transferred to Lightroom Classic, but I do very little editing in Lightroom. You just need to be aware of what software downloaded the images and not allow yourself to become confused about their origin. If you can do that then there is nothing wrong with using both programs on the same computer. As far as having Lightroom on one computer and Lightroom Classic on another is concerned, that is an ideal set up.

I'm more working toward Jim on this. I do have both on the same computer and have not had any issues. However, like Jim, I do use them for different purposes: LR for interactivity with my mobile images and LR-C for my main images, especially those that I take with my SLR.

 

Let me add that I also maintain a series of Collections with LR-C that I can access on my LR-Mobile on my phone. So, if I select a bunch of images from a holiday and place them in a Collection for that trip and can then show them to folks either on my iPhone, iPad or in Lightroom Web. However, I never do image enhancement on these Collections: that would begin something ugly. Besides I trust my color monitored desktop screen more than I do my phone or pad.

 

So while 100% interactivity is not possible, once you know and understand the limitations and abilties with the two, you can do a lot.

I also have created a few collections in Lightroom Classic that I have chosen to share. What I don't really rely on is editing in one program taking effect in the other. My experience has been that when I have tried it to see if it works, sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. So rather than drive myself crazy trying to figure out why, I just don't do it or worry about it. But that's my choice.
