Adobe announced it back in October, but now it’s official: they have just released the final standalone version of Lightroom, version 6.14. Adobe announces that the software will have no future updates and encourages the users to upgrade to Lightroom Classic or Lightroom CC.
If you still haven’t switched to Adobe’s subscription plan and still use Lightroom 6, be careful with the updates. The recent reports from users say that Adobe Download Manager has deleted Lightroom 6 from their computer and replaced it with Lightroom CC. You can prevent this by changing some of the settings instead of using the default ones.
If this has already happened to you, don’t panic. You can still get Lightroom 6 back if you don’t want to switch to the subscription software, and Adobe has shared the steps you need to take.
We’ve been sharing with you some of the incredible results photographers are getting with Lightroom’s new dehaze feature. But, those who sprung for the Lightroom 6 proprietary version have been disappointed that Adobe left them out of the updated feature. (Adobe, thou maladjusted schoolchild!)
Fortunately, those without the Creative Cloud version of Lightroom can now rejoice! Thanks to the fine folks at Prolost, proprietary Lightroom users can now get all the wonderful benefits of image dehaze for FREE without having to pay a monthly subscription!
As expected, the new Lightroom was just announced and it comes in both CC and 6 versions.
The details mentioned in the premature post we shared earlier today turned out to be spot on, and Lightroom CC will be available as part of the Creative Cloud Photography plan while Lightroom 6 will be available as a standalone item to be downloaded or on DVD.
New Lightroom CC features and videos after the jump.
A post that seems to have been published a few hours early sheds some light on the software that is scheduled to be released later today.
An unlisted video on the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom channel on YouTube was included in the post and provides a lengthy explanation of how the new face recognition feature will work. The fact that the video was uploaded on April 13th, is unlisted, and barely had any views until just recently indicate that the post is both real and that somebody will be in trouble over this.
Good news for those hoping to get a boxed version of Lightroom, as the post confirms that it exists and will be released as well.
Adobe’s next version of the popular editing and cataloguing software will finally be released tomorrow.
There have been several expected release dates in the past due to product pages launched on various retailer websites, but this time it’s a done deal.
The only question is, will there be a boxed version?
The most recent leak indicates that the latest version of the popular photo processing and organizing software will be available in just ten days time.
While the leak does seem authentic, it is not necessarily the final release date.
A previous leak from Amazon UK and FNAC, a large retail chain in France, indicated that the software would be released on March 9th.
There has been some concern as to whether or not Lightroom will continue to be offered under a perpetual license or if it will become subscription-based only, but a leak from Amazon UK reveals that the new version will be offered as a “DVD Set”.
