Dear ADobe,

 

I don't need a Cloud. Especially I don't need a cloud that synchroniszes automaticly (Lightroom).

Yeah, I use Lightroom classic. Didn't realize when checking out the program on my phone and iPad just to see what it was like that was gonna automatically sync everything I ever took to the cloud it's a mess. It's a horrible system. You should be worn before you open it and you should be default. Not uploading. It's very very shady.

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

 

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post if it helps you get responses.

Do be aware that you can easily lose all your images and adjustments if you never sync your device to the cloud.
