Hi , i am very new to this ...i just subscribed to the photography plan and was so excited to start learning so i went to Youtube to watch some videos. I noticed my Lightroom didn't look or have the same options as their Lightroom so i checked my version and i have 4.1 from 2012???. Why did i get such an older version, i thought i was subscribing to the latest. Do i get the same options/benefits ?. This is frustrating. TIA.
As part of your photography plan, you have access to TWO versions of Lightroom:
Lightroom Classic - the "desktop only" version that has been around for many years
Lightroom - the "desktop/web/mobile" version that is relatively new
The main difference between the two is that the "Classic" version maintains all your original images locally in a catalog on your hard drive, while the newer version maintains all originals in the Adobe Cloud. Here's a page that shows the differences in more detail:
