Backup raw files and catalogue from Lightroom 7.2

Hello,

 

I've signed up to Lightroom 7.2 and would like to temporarily pause my subscription as I'm considering switching to a non-subscription based software. My photos and the catalogue are saved in the Lightroom cloud. How do I download the raw files and the catalogue? 

 

Thanks,

 

Henrik

If you "pause" your subscription, your photos will be deleted in the Adobe Cloud after a time (90days?).

So you need to be sure you have those photos on a 'local' hard-drive in your computer system. (ie, NOT a backup!)

You can 'download' your photos from the Cloud in two ways-

1) Export the photos

Or choose the DNG option in the Export-

2) Use the Adobe Downloader App

Option 1) may be more reliable as you can Export an Album at a time, being selective to test the export is working as expected..

Note you have no way of preserving your 'Catalog'. It cannot be downloaded or used 'locally'. If you re-subscribe then it would mean re-importing all photos to a 'new' catalog.

 

Regards. My System: Lightroom-Classic 13.2 Photoshop 25.5, ACR 16.2, Lightroom 7.2, Lr-iOS 9.0.1, Bridge 14.0.2, Windows-11.

Thank you for your help. That's all very clear. 

 

A shame that I can't download the catalog. 

 

Thanks
