In the latest Lightroom Classic CC update, Adobe has introduced some novelties. The 7.3 version contains new color profiles, some bugs have been fixed, and new cameras and lenses are supported – including the Sony A7III.
In the latest Lightroom update, it seems that Adobe has decided to make Profiles a more important feature. The “Profiles” panel is now moved to the top of the Basic panel. According to Adobe, it should be “a starting point or foundation” of image editing. Profiles are divided into three categories: Adobe Raw profiles, Camera Matching profiles, and Creative profiles. The Creative profiles are further divided into four groups: Artistic, B&W, Modern, and Vintage.
Here’s a demonstration of the new Profiles:
Another improvement is an expanded Tone Curve. The updated feature should allow you to “optimize tone curve adjustments,” according to Adobe. Also, the Dehaze slider has been moved to the Basic panel. It used to be in the Effects panel, but Adobe decided to make it closer to the Clarity slider so you can use them in tandem.
New cameras and lenses are also supported in the latest Lightroom Classic CC update. These include Sony A7 III, three Canon and two Panasonic models. You can check out the entire list and the latest added cameras here.
A few other improvements include optimized face detection feature and faster grid importing. According to Adobe, “the photo grid now loads faster while importing photos to Lightroom Classic CC from connected devices.” For more details on the latest update, visit Adobe’s website.
