Easing The Bounce From Lightroom “cloud” to Lightroom Traditional


On Wednesday, Rob had an excellent put up about how one can migrate from the cloud-based model of Lightroom (which we consult with right here as “Lightroom Cloud” regardless that it’s not it’s official title), to Lightroom Traditional (here’s the link in case you missed it).

Whereas Rob confirmed the steps on how one can the make the transfer, in case you’re making that transfer you’ll rapidly understand that a number of the very same options have utterly completely different names in Traditional. So, right this moment so to assist ease that transition much more, listed here are a number of the fundamental options that do the identical issues, however have completely different names. Right here goes:

In Lightroom ‘cloud’ – you kind photos into “Albums”

In Lightroom Traditional” – these are known as “Collections”

In Lightroom Traditional” – these are known as “Assortment Units”


In Lightroom ‘cloud’ – the button you click on to herald images is named the “Add Pictures” button

In Lightroom Traditional” – that button is named the ‘Import’ button.


Observe: It appears to me like these are backward, as a result of in cloud you truly are importing — shifting your photos out of your laptop or reminiscence card and shifting them into Adobe’s Cloud. That button in ‘cloud’ looks as if it ought to be named Import. The “Add Pictures” button ought to be in Traditional as an alternative, because you’re solely asking it to handle your images of their present location. They don’t truly transfer in any respect or go inside something whenever you import them into Lightroom Traditional. Simply sayin’

In Lightroom ‘cloud’ – you tweak the settings on your picture in ‘Edit
