I am in a rural area and the most ecconomical internet resource is throught a 10G/month hostspot. Is it crazy to think I could use the online version of LR?
Lightroom (the cloud-based software), not to be confused with Lightroom Classic (the desktop based software), is discussed in a different forum. Please post your question at https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom/bd-p/lightroom
Sorry for the confusion--I am considering migrating to the cloud based version and am concerned about limited data internet.
Yes, the people in the other forum will be able to help you better.
"...am concerned about limited data internet."
In which case it's not really designed with your circumstances in mind.
