P: Possibility to use Lightroom offline

I would really love this program more if there was a possibility to use it with offline files/custom location for the files. So you would be able to choose a location on your drive, on which the edits/images will be saved. Thats the way Lightroom Classic works, this makes so much more sense.

 

I want to use the more modern software (which is Lightroom CC) but this missing feature pretty much forces me to handle files seperately to the editing software.

 

My current workflow is this:

- Import images with Lightroom Classic

- Organize, filter and flag images in Lightroom Classic

- Choose specific images to edit in Lightroom CC

And when my 20GB cloud storage is full, I have to make a backup of the edits and delete them from the CC catalog because 20GB is nowhere enough. (I know about the possibility to upgrade to 1TB, I actually dont want the edits on the cloud at all, only final images)

Does someone have any workflow tips? / Whats your import/organizing workflow?

I use LrD offline all the time; some features are not available offline (such as rename an album, or Sensai search).

I switched from Classic to Lr over a year ago. So all my images are in the cloud. On my laptop which is space constrained, I have specific albums I am working with marked for local storage. While on my desktop I have all local originals selected which keeps local copies of all original images.

 

In terms of image editing, it is not a case of Lr being more modern than LrC. The applications have different design philosphies and target users. Over time, I have seen new features added to Lr which are "advanced". The default behavior is to hide them, and it takes explicit action my the user to enable the advanced features.

 

So in short; for workflow there are really two routes:

1. Many Classic users have found how to use Lr largely as an input for images. Basically as a culling, and basic photo editing only before switching to Classic to finish. There are many threads on how to do this.

2. Make the jump completely into Lr. This is what I did, and I have not looked back.

 

If you want to go completely to the cloud, let me know and I can post my workflow here.
