Hasta la vista, Adobe CC!!!

I knew I didn’t like renting software. If I use a tool weekly – I own it, not shell out forever to rent it.

The entire year I tried CC for photographers I left my CS6 suite on my computer and always chose to not replace it with CC. I was 99.9% sure I was not going to continue to rent my software when my year was up. Well, my year is up this month and I’ve spent an entire day trying to remove CC’s deep-reaching fingers from my computer.

Lightroom 6 should be able to see the catalog from Lightroom classic CC so I don’t lose stuff but it won’t even uninstall it right. CC app manager thing won’t even uninstall.

If I was unhappy before with them I’m fit to be tied now. When I finally get all this CC off my hard drive and back to just the last version of Adobe I bought outright- I’ll be updating my On1 software.

Be warned if you decide to take CC off something that should take 20 minutes tops takes forever and it’s messy.

Looks like even though I told CC not to mess with my CS6 suite that I’ll have to update my CS6 suite and LR6 to repair the damage. I swear if I lose all my tags, edits and such I’ll never buy an Adobe product again. I’ve thought of so many things CC could stand for today.

Like I didn’t have enough to do with year end stuff to hassle with this. AUGGHHH

I ended up having to download and use the remove cc tool. Then reinstalling some of the CS6 suite and LR6.  Some of my “edit in” programs are gone and it made a new catalog and can’t use the one I had. I am going to miss LR dehaze and a few features but not enough to keep paying. Any chance of me giving this another shot have been completely wiped out after today.

    That’s odd. I removed it completely with no sign whatsoever of it on my work laptop last Friday. I’m in Windows 10 new pc but not sure if that matters or not. I removed Lightroom, I design and photoshop. Sorry you had so much trouble. We are alike in many ways but I’ll never understand your dislike of LR. It’s so easy!! Lol.

    I like Lightroom. I don’t like CC and renting software. I’m going to dive more into On1 since Adboe has gone to no longer making software you can buy and be done paying for. When they originally went to CC suites they said they were not doing it with LR but then they did. The CC part was hardest to get off. LR and PS came off when I clicked uninstall from the CC app (not control panel like it said not to use). I had to use the removal tool to get CC off and it did mess up my last purchased CS6 and LR6 in the process. Oddly enough I didn’t gain back hardly any computer space going from 2 sets of programs to 1. LR is easy but I really regret ever leaving Corel. On1 is a much better price than going back to Corel. I’ll just keep using my old CS6 suite until it won’t work anymore. I do like your caps lock trick in LR.
