I think you'll be fine. Look at the case of Aperture, discontinued by Apple. Adobe offers an Aperture import plug-in.
Lightroom's catalog is an SQLite database and much of the data stored within it is in XML format so the data is very accessible to programmers if the need arises. In the unlikely event that Adobe and Lightroom ceased to exist, it would easy ...
If Adobe stops support for Lightroom, you use your catalogs just as you did before. You don't need Adobe's support to use the software, especially if you have a perpetual license. But even if not, the "read only" features will still work after Adobe revokes your CC license.
Other than that, there is no migration path to other software currently available. ...
Support for Canon 750D camera need Lightroom version 6 (check this document)
You can continue using LR 3, but before open RAW files you need to convert them to DNG with this software for example (its free)
Or you can buy perpetual license for LR 6 here.
You can download LR 6 (the last version) from here
P.S. Also you can try the opensource alternative like ...
The principal difference is that some adjustments in Camera Raw are applied before demosaicing / conversion to destination colourspace & bitdepth. Such adjustments can't be replicated readily in Photoshop.
Additionally the range and behaviour of adjustments is different between Camera Raw and Photoshop, some have migrated across (e.g. fill light) but ...
There is not a direct correspondance between standard JPEG quality 1-100 and Photoshop 0-12. The only thing they have in common is that to a bigger number usually corresponds to better quality.
Quantization tables and image quality
JPEG compression is a broad topic. There are many different parameters to consider, but the main element that affects image ...
In the Save As function the 0-12 quality scale is used, but in the Save For Web function a 0-100 scale is used. That 0-100 scale is probably close to the 1-99 scale specified in the standards.
I compared the file sizes from the different settings, using a 21 MP image (so that the metadata is tiny compared to the image data), and came to this approximate ...
Adobe Lightroom is a streamlined photo processing and organizing software. Adobe Spark is a tool for visual storytelling on the web.
Here's a comparison of the respective pro's and con's:
Pro: It's a good program for photo processing and organizing
Con: It's not a tool for visual storytelling on the web
Pro: It's a good tool ...
You are using the wrong software, as the basic concept of Lightroom CC on all platforms is based on syncing everything to the cloud.
If you want do have an offline Workflow, you need to use Lightroom Classic CC *. If you want to have control what is synced to the cloud, you can also connect one Lightroom Classic Catalogue to Lightroom CC and sync specific ...
You can't have a Lightroom 6 trial version, only a Lightroom CC trial version.
From Adobe itself (https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/lightroom-trial-ccm.html), you have to install the Creative Cloud desktop app when you are logged in with a free Membership account. Then, you should be able to download it.

Even though the files from your new 7DII are in the .cr2 format, the data in a raw file is always sensor specific. That is, each different sensor design must be demosaiced/converted differently to get the same standardized results.
Lr 3 is a while back. The latest version of Adobe Camera Raw (which is used by Lr to demosaic raw files) that is compatible ...
Lightroom is a very successful product. I suggest you not worry too much about this possibility until it happens.
It's fairly safe to assume if Adobe does decide to abandon Lightroom, someone will take up the opportunity to create an importer that will suck up your Lightroom data into their product, the way Adobe did with Apple Aperture recently.
To be ...
Edited: It seems that you can upgrade from Lightroom v1.x, v2.x, v3.x and v4.x to v5 for the same price (upgrade and not full software). Last time I checked I haven't found this possibility. Good news for everyone :)
Regarding your Lightroom software v3.5, installing Lightroom 5 will not modify your 3.5 installation (you will still be able to launch ...
The Batch Capture feature in Adobe Premiere is for use with Firewire based camera control and video capture. The 600D does not have a firewire connector and thus can not be used with Premiere's batch capture feature. If you wish to do remote capture with your 600D you should connect via USB and use the Eos Utility software that came with your camera.
The keyword box and keyword field below it work differently. The latter makes it easy to do what you want by inserting comma-separated keywords. Once you press Enter, all the words apply and the image is moved out of the collection but the point is that you can now apply multiple keywords at once. If you really do not like commas, you must change it to ...

For very old versions of Lightroom or Photoshop to support newer cameras Adobe recommends to convert native, proprietary RAW files to DNG format.
Snippet from an Adobe support page
What if I own an older version of Photoshop or Lightroom?
You do not have to buy a new version of Photoshop or Lightroom just to
get the latest camera support.
Have you checked on Google? This was the first result:
Solution: Delete the catalog lock file
To resolve this issue, do the following:
Close the Lightroom application.
Go to the folder where your catalog file [yourcatalogname].lrcat is saved. By default, Lightroom saves catalogs in the following folders:
Windows: \Users[user name]\Pictures\Lightroom
Even though the files from your 750D are in the .cr2 format, the data in a raw file is always sensor specific. That is, each different sensor design must be demosaiced/converted differently to get the same standardized results.

What you need to do is to upgrade your version of Adobe DNG Convertor. The reason is camera vendors make slight changes in RAW formats of (almost) every new camera they release. And Adobe every several months release new version of DNG Convertor where is included support of new cameras (beside other changes).
The same is true for RAW processor of Lightroom, ...
If I understood your question correctly, you are looking for a tool to reduce the time spent during the culling process.
You can use software like FilterPixel to cull your photos automatically. (Full disclosure, I am the founder and CEO of FilterPixel)

Using Google seems to move the exact point to the nearest road, so if you are on a hill somewhere the co-ordinates will be a bit different for what you expect.
The best bet would be to use the method above
To convert a decimal longitude or latitude to degrees (minutes and seconds), simply take the first, whole, number and use it as the degrees. Then ...
If you use the default "without keywords" that installed with lightroom, it is a smart collection, meaning all the photos in the collection match a set of criteria and are included in the collection. As soon as you add the first keyword, the picture will disappear because it has a keyword and no longer matches the criteria for inclusion in the collection.
I don't know about NEF, but I know with CR2, I have the ability to adjust how the RAW file is imported, but after import, you are working with a standard raster graphic in Photoshop and a lot of information for use with color correction and exposure control is lost. This is also the reason why Adobe Lightroom exists as a product. In general, the best ...
To avoid a re-import. Once the metadata for the capture time is correct you should be able to go into your library module and sort by date... Getting your pictures in the right folder is simple as selecting the photos from one year and dropping them into the correct year in your folder hierarchy.
For your first question, please refer to my answer to this post. It describes in Detail how you can customize the Folder Structure Lightroom creates on import.
To your second question: You need to manually select the pictures you want to edit, and then go to the Menu "Metadata > Edit Capture time"
I think your overthinking things. Every RAW file is TAGGED with a white balance value. The tag simply contains the Kelvin rating for the white balance. If you selected Tungsten in camera, then by default the image, when rendered with Lightroom, will be rendered with a Kelvin rating somewhere between 2800K and 3300K (depends on the camera.)
If you further ...
The description information in the LR's catalog (like keywords, rating, title, etc.) can be easily written into your images as XMP metadata. And any decent DAM solution that supports XMP/MWG can easily import it.
Information about your non-destructive RAW adjustments also can be written into the XMP but this is unuseful for other programs because these are ...
In the develop module, with the crop/straighten menu selection (looks like a dashed box) there's an "Angle" tool that looks like a ruler with a bubble. There's a few options to adjusting the angle there:
Use the slider to drag left or right to change the angle, can be fussy, but gets you in the ballpark.
Click on the angle number on the far right side and ...
