Today we are going to answer some major questions, because last week Adobe just released a brand new program that has the same name as the old program. It's Lightroom CC, so a lot of people will think, "Lightroom CC, well I already know what that is," or "I've already used that," because it's that really big amazingly complex, like lots of stuff you can do. But that's not what Lightroom CC is anymore. So what Adobe did, is they actually changed the name. They introduced a brand new program that they built from the ground up, with same concepts in mind as Lightroom, but it's called Lightroom CC, which is what you always called Lightrooms anyway. And then they took Lightroom that you know and love, and they gave it a new name called Lightroom Classic. Which was really kind of a very confusing, difficult transition for everybody. And so we're gonna clear some of that up. But we're also going to, in the process, and mostly for the next two days with an extra eight segments of class, we are...
, this whole class is all about Lightroom CC, which is the program for organizing and editing your photos. But it's much more simple than the original Lightroom was. Which Lightroom was also very simple in comparison to, say, Photoshop. So Photoshop was like complexity, really really high complexity. And then Lightroom was introduced, and it's much simpler, it's more photo based, people love it because it's more like going into a darkroom and doing something very simple and very photographic. We're not trying to swap heads out and stuff like that. Well, Lightroom CC now, the new version of Lightroom CC, is even simpler than that. And to prove it, I brought my mom to class with me. (laughter) So this is my mom, this is Mary Platt, she is the one that made me. And so I brought her with me because I figured, you know, if I can teach my mom to use this program, then anybody else can use this program, right? So that's always the challenge, is teaching your mom to do something. There she is, she's right there, and we're gonna teach her how to do it.
