Great image quality but no ability to print

Overall Lightroom CC is a great photo editing and management app. All photos are seamlessly synced between devices (like Apple Photos). And the quiality of the images is exceptional. I think the edited quality is better than Photos, which is why I use it. However there is no way to print! Adobe for whatever reason don't think that users need to print any photos. You can make them as pretty as you want, but you cannot then print them from LIghtroom, you need to export the image and print in something else. I have no idea why a photo app wouldn't be able to print, other than Adobe thinking they know better than their users who have been asking for this since day 1.

Warning No Red Eye Removal Tool In Version 4.1

I purchased Lightroom about a month ago and I am new to using Lightroom. There is no Red Eye removal tool, this seems like a big omission for a software package oriented towards photography. I am trying to process some older photographs that were digitized and due to using the flash a lot back then, there are a lot of red eyes to remove. I was very surprised that this tools was not available since I have been using other tools for years that have this feature. It appears that Lightroom classic had this feature judging by the number of videos on the web that show how to do it. Too bad Adobe is forcing everyone to a subscription model so there is not a way to purchase the classic version. Other features are very nice. The auto setting for editing photos is good so that saves a lot of time. Also the Healing Tool is very nice for fixing dirt spots and other unwanted artifacts. I am still on the fence on whther I am going to keep this subscription so far I am very undecided on whether it is worth it for me.

Just annoying

I know I should have expected this from adobe but it is still really frustrating that there is a $10/month subscription, but I understand that adobe is a high end editing company. But, the even more annoying thing is that you have no idea that there is a subscription until you have downloaded the app, which took my WIFI an hour to do, and after making an account only then does it block the entire application from use and tell you that is is $9.99 a month to use. I do not understand what is so difficult about putting in the apps description "THERE IS A $9.99 MONTHLY FEE TO USE THIS SOFTWARE". they only say down at the very bottom that there is a OPTIONAL fee for "premium" that I cannot even see anything about in the software. I don't know if somehow there is something wrong with the application I got, but there is no functionality to the app except to purchase the subscription, and if somehow that qualifies as "optional" then I guess the app store is more lax about applications than I thought. If I could get a response to explain this i'd be grateful.
