If you don’t want to subscribe to the Creative Cloud Photography Program ($9.99/mo) in order to get the latest version of Lightroom (Classic 7), but you want to get as up-to-date as possible, you can still purchase both the upgrade and full versions of the perpetual (stand-alone) Lightroom 6.
Here’s how you can find Lightroom 6 on Adobe’s website:
- Visit the Adobe.com product page.
- In the Search box, type “Lightroom 6”. That will bring up the option:
- Click on Buy now, and then choose the upgrade and indicate what version you are upgrading from:
Note that Lightroom 6 does not include the features introduced during the Lightroom 6 product cycle that were for Creative Cloud subscribers only – dehaze, guided upright, local blacks and whites, and panorama boundary warp, and it does not include features introduced in Lightroom Classic 7 (which is subscription-only) – performance improvements, range mask, an embedded previews workflow and other miscellaneous changes..
Lightroom 6 received its last update on December 19, 2017 with support for new cameras, new lens profiles and bug fixes. Development has now been permanently frozen.
