When loading Lightroom CC for first time, you are asked whether you are a beginner, something in middle or pro. Did I set this up wrong? Can it be changed?

just purchased the Creative Cloud photo package. When it first loaded was asked what level I was at. I set up beginner, thinking that would give me all sorts of help options the other levels wouldn’t have. Wrong. I was using Lightroom 3.3 and Photoshop Elements 15 as standalone programs on my computer before. Bought a new camera that wasn’t supported by 3.3 for import/export, so gritted my teeth and bought the CC Photo package.aNow the interface in Lightroom CC is so basic it’s a joke. There’s no menu across the top for Library, Developer, etc., and the import/export interface only gives me JPG options, not PNG or TIFF!

Think I messed up by calling myself a beginner at the initial setup. Or am I missing something else? Hoe do you backtrack to reset those initials choices?

Suggestions for a fix will reward the fixer with many karmic points. Thanks for any help.

The question is for marketing purposes only and does not affect the software in any way.

Which Plan do you have? As Lightroom Classic is the latest incarnation of the traditional Lightroom and what you seem to be looking for. (Lightroom CC is a simpler product and stores photos in the Cloud, syncing across devices).

I wouldn‘t know how to reset the experience preference.

I have the Creative Cloud Photography plan. Didn’t realize I had Lightroom Classic as well as CC. I will see if that suits my needs better.

To explain a little further, Lightroom CC does not have the different modules that you are accustomed to. It is the cloud-based Lightroom, and has a much simpler and more streamlined interface. You probably want to install Lightroom Classic CC. It is the version that is desktop-based and allows you to manage images in folders on your hard drive like you have become accustomed to. As a subscriber to the photography package, you are entitled to use both programs and have a limited amount of cloud storage space. You would do well to look into some tutorials on YouTube and on the Adobe website to help you understand the difference between the two programs and how they relate to each other.

Here’s probably the best set of videos (the last three especially) although they are last years.....
