Rick ChurchillIt looks like the next major update to the Mac OS will render Lightroom 6.14 inoperable due to the fact that although it is a 64 bit application it seems to have a number of 32 bit segments. The Mac gives the warning “Lightroom…. is not optimised for your computer and needs to be updated”.
Adobe some time ago said that Lightroom 6, the stand-alone subscription-free app, would not be updated in the future. Whether it will do a one-off update because of the backlash that will occur when users find it no longer works when they thought they had a 64 bit programme, I do not know. The Lightroom disc I have says it requires 64 bit support in both Windows and Mac OS environments so it may run on my Windows PC (which I use just for games as I have installed a hefty graphics card) under Windows 10.
In preparing for the worst I am thinking of several options, one of which is to buy a Mac Mini and to keep it running on Mojave OS just for my photographs. As I will not be using it for video production I do not require hardware for intensive graphics work so perhaps a lower spec refurbished model would suffice. Any thoughts?
