Wait the what now? (or ‘More Lightroom Confusion’)

Remember earlier in the week when I was a little bewildered over the options that Adobe was giving me for my photo editing software?

You know, the post with the lines like:

I don’t recall there being two Lightrooms when I installed it just a few weeks ago. Suddenly there’s Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC (which is the new name for Lightroom CC).

and:

I want to talk about Lightroom versus Lightroom. The new version versus the… the new version versus the old version which is the new version.

Thankfully, through a heady mix of good luck and vaguely informed guesswork, I think I managed to select the right version (for me, anyway). And I got free access to Adobe Photoshop too. Excellent.

And I was at peace.

Briefly.

Briefly, because this morning, I woke up to an email:

All-new “Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC”? So, is this different to the other two? Or is it the same package as one (or both of them?) of the them, just under a different name? Worse still, the email was entitled “Adobe Capture CC”, which just adds further confusion to an already baffling stew. And how did that dog get up there? Presumably, he was lifted up there by the hippie hanging out of the passenger window, but why? The roof of a vintage Mercedes estate is no place for a canine. He wants to be sniffing around in the corn. Get him down. Now.

But I digress; the dehaze tool, which had disappeared in the new version of Lightroom Classic CC (which is also the old version of Lightroom CC, not to be confused with Lightroom CC, which (lest we forget) is the new version of Lightroom CC) apparently makes a welcome return in one (or more?) of these software packages.

I have absolutely no idea which one, so I’m just going to switch on my laptop and see what happens.
