I have Lightroom CC2015 and Photoshop CC 2017 (don't use Photoshop much yet - learning) and pay a monthly subscription so I assume it is kept up-to-date. (Where do I check which release please).

1) I am confused if that is Lightroom or Lightroom Classic. I can use photo-merge and the tone curve which I think somebody said that was Classic, but not sure. Can you help please. Whatis is it I have?!! Also can I use it on my iphone 7 plus?

2) I would like to print a very large print 5 x 3 feet (I've never done before). Can I do this in my own version of Lightroom CC 2015 or do I have to use Photoshop?

Any tips please?

Thank you for your help

The versions of Lightroom and Photoshop that you have installed are way out of date. Lightroom Classic is currently at version 10.2. Photoshop has progressed far beyond what you are using. Apparently you aren't using the Creative Cloud Application Manager. Or, if you are, it isn't up-to-date. If you are paying a subscription fee then there is a mobile version of Lightroom that can be installed on your iPhone. With Lightroom Classic installed, when you take images with the Lightroom camera on you...

Hi Jim, Thank you very much for your reply - so very informative. It gave me a bit of jolt to know how far I was behind.Anyway, I am now completely updated with Lightroom Classic and the 10.2 version of Photoshop!!I also have been able to take my prints into Photoshop to create a very large size (they will go to an external printer  -I won't print myself).So thank you very much for your help and guidance. Best wishesSteve

Apparently you aren't using the Creative Cloud Application Manager. Or, if you are, it isn't up-to-date. If you are paying a subscription fee then there is a mobile version of Lightroom that can be installed on your iPhone. With Lightroom Classic installed, when you take images with the Lightroom camera on your iPhone it is possible for them to automatically be sent to Lightroom Classic. But you need to get your programs updated because you are really behind.


As far as printing large images as you desire is concerned, that would depend on whether or not you have a printer capable of handling images that large. That would probably require a printer that handles rolls of paper or is able to print images in sections. There is a way to do that in Photoshop (printing in sections) but I'm not familiar with doing that.


The main thing you should concern yourself with is getting programs updated. If you are paying a subscription fee and are still using programs that old then you are literally throwing away your money because they are seriously out of date.
