Is this version of Lightroom really lame, or is it my imagination?

I'm new to photo editing, but serious about learning it. I bought the $9.99/month plan from Adobe, which I know includes two Lightrooms and Photoshop. I decided to learn the newest one, "Lightroom," which is apparently referred to as "Lightroom desktop/mobile/tablet/cloud..." - SO awkwardly named. Now I discover there's lots of things I want to do that I can't use this version of Lightroom for. To make things more confusing, there are very few tutorials for this "Lightroom desktop (or whatever)" version, I suppose because it is new, or maybe because no one wants to use it. I guess it's time to learn the old Lightroom and figure out a way to store my photos on a hard drive somewhere.

 

I merely post this as a warning to new users for this dumb product that Adobe has out there.

You need the other version; Lightroom Classic. That is the version that has been around for a decade and is used by serious amateurs and professionals, and the version all those tutorials are about. The new version is more aimed at smartphone shooters.

Just because there is a new Lightroom that stores everything in the cloud and has a new interface, one shouldn't assume like many do that the "old" Lightroom is fading away and is worth forgetting about. Lightroom Classic is alive and well and still being updated and fully supported.
