The Results of my Lightroom CC Poll

The Results of my Lightroom CC Poll

A little while ago I put up a poll on the site here, asking if people were planning on using Lightroom CC or not. It was in part, to answer my own curiosity as to whether or not people were going to use it, but also to gauge interest for supporting it in the future. Now that it’s been up for a while, I thought I would share the results.

LightroomCC-Poll

While not a huge sample size, I’ve seen similar polls on other website, and the ratios seem to be broadly similar, so I’d say you can take this as the general public perception of Lightroom CC.

Here’s what the respondents said (I’ve rounded the figures off)

  • No: 64%
  • Don’t know: 21%
  • Yes: 15%

So, on it’s own merit, it seems like a lot of no votes compared to yes votes, but there’s also a fair number of don’t knows. I guess for a lot of people, they will have to see how it evolves. Personally, I still don’t know what to think of it, and the mixed messages coming from Adobe don’t help either.

Going forward, I will offer some coverage of it, and I have an idea for a product which people should find useful. Basically, you can get around some of the limitations by using presets, so I am going to create a set of tool presets which will help get around some of the things that aren’t in it.
