    I would avoid Lightroom 6.2 and the October CC Lr update

    around the internets, and I downloaded it myself, uninstalled it immediately, the import dialogue has been horribly mangled and iPhoto-ified.

    couldn't make heads or tails of any of it. have to wonder where adobes head is at.

    Reaction to the new import seems quite bimodal. Some like it a lot, others (me included) loathe it.

    here's a blog entry

    https://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjou...2-release.html

    seems it was motivated by observing people who had never used lightroom before. Basically, throwing existing users under the bus. They said they observed new users literally "pushing away from the desk in frustration"....

    right....

    Installed the update and LR has crashed twice today. First crashes in several years (for me). The Import dialog seems dumbed down from the previous incarnation. Color me "not a fan". Not sure what to do except regress to prior version.

    Have a 2010 Mac Pro with latest OSX. Installed LR 6.2 and had multiple (4 or 5) crashes in 30 minute period when, or just after, importing images.

    But no crashes since performing HD "first aid" (new permissions actions) and then rebooting computer.

    On the flip side, I don't see any compelling reason to "update". Ingest looks a bit different. Operates the same.

    I had enough with crashes and sluggish performance in both 2 and 2.1 so I uninstalled and reverted back to 1.1.

    6.2 also caused my catalog to appear corrupted (wrong images appearing when I clicked on a folder, images jumping around between folders and finally the whole thing freezing)

    I guess after many many of their existing users "literally pushed away from the desk in frustration" they figured out their priorities.....the old import is back.

    I fixed my Adobe LR6 issues............ I permanently uninstalled it!

    After a day in a half of Adobe CS techs wanting me to learn their job (which I don't want to know) and time wasted netting the same poor results in the end I told them to stick it and I uninstalled the c---.

    I don't have time to mickey mouse around with a software that they haven't written a correctly working update for nor do I feel I should learn the inner workings of computer coding to correct a problem their update created. I am a customer and a user they are the design software engineers ... fix it!!!!!

    I barely used LR anyway and might use my standalone CS6 on 2-4 images a year at max.... I will never use a monthly lease program or anyones cloud so my days with Adobe software were limited anyway. No real loss for my workflow...... one aggravation down one to go!

    I feel much better now
