Hello – my students work on both their PC laptops and iMac desktop with Adobe Creative Cloud. I have heard that there are sometimes compatibility issues with Lightroom on the two operating systems. Are they better off using Bridge or can they use Lightroom with which I have more familiarity? This is for organization and workflow mostly w some editing. They will also be editing in Photoshop. Many thanks for your advice!!
Thanks so much for your response! It is the creative cloud that they have access to. However, the former teacher told me that from her experience, lightroom was not stable transferring from PC to Mac and vice versa. Is this no longer true?
There has never been a problem with stability, but because Lightroom Classic stores image paths in its catalog, there can be a problem with 'missing images' if you switch between the platforms. That is because Windows uses drive letters (so the image path would look like this: D://Folder/Subfolder/Image) while MacOS uses disk names (so the same path would look like this: Diskname/Folder/Subfolder/Image). There are ways around that however, so we still need to know whether you plan to use Lightroom Classic or Lightroom (cloud).
