Reader Comment: Adobe Quality Control an Issue?

Buying advice on the new iMac 5K and iMac 4K.

Quick note: Thank you for the hard work and I appreciate the IntegrityChecker! This has helped me recognize and fix file corruption, definitely a time and ass-saver.

Adobe Mud-Brick Melt: When LR 6.0.1 came out, I immediately upgraded without waiting, thinking “It’s only a ‘dot’ release, what’s the worst that could happen?” Well, the interface controls for the sliders would pop back and forth after several days of using the new version, making finely controlled adjustments impossible. And my older backups of the machine were already written over. NOT GOOD. The only way around it was using a MIDI controller and the Pfixer mapping software, which meant I could only edit in my studio, not on the road or under a tight deadlines.

Obviously, Adobe provides no easy way through the software to downgrade back to previous versions, and now with the 6.2 import debacle (which I have not downloaded yet until a stable version comes along), I cannot trust Adobe to make my business into a beta guinea pig. And Adobe wants me to subscribe to the CC version of the newest/buggiest software through the subscription model?! NO.

And yes, I know I should have had a back-up going back to the previous LR version, so that’s another piece of anecdotal evidence to be confident in real-time system of a longer-term backups.

I just downloaded CaptureOne to give it a try, but I don’t know if I have time to learn the intricacies of the program. Luckily, it the seasonal work will slow down to allow time, but switching workflows is daunting and I doubt if CaptureOne can fully replace Lightroom at this time.

Thanks for your work!

MPG: Professionals cannot afford cavalier software development. Even small issues can be a serious headache. Adobe Lightroom 6 seems to have a variety of issues, and each version since version 3 seems to have gotten slower and slower.
