If there’s one thing most Lightroom users agree about, it’s that the program could use a speed boost. In its latest announcement, Adobe introduces GPU-accelerated editing in Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw. It should make the editing process smoother and make the programs faster and more responsive.
Every few years, Adobe adds something new and interesting to their raw file engine. We saw it when they added the Clarity slider, when we lost “Fill Light” and “Recovery” in favour of shadows, highlights and white levels. And we saw it fairly recently when they introduced Dehaze. Now, they’ve added a new “Texture” slider, which is sort of like the Clarity slider, only much smarter.
Skylum has announced Luminar Flex, a new plugin that brings Luminar’s AI enhancing tools to third-party apps. You can now use Luminar adjustments and effects with Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, and Photoshop Elements, as well as with Photos for Mac.
If you’re new to Lightroom, you ought to know that there are plenty of features and tricks that will make your editing easier and speed up your workflow immensely. In this fun video, Ed Gregory of Photos In Color has compiled ten of his favorite features that do just that. They improve your editing and make you faster and more efficient in Lightroom.
Since Adobe switched from perpetual licenses to a subscription model, I’ve been trying to make my photo and video workflow as Adobe-free as possible. As a result, I don’t use Lightroom. So I never really had a need for the original Loupedeck.
But when the announcement came for the Loupedeck+ with support for Skylum Aurora HDR and Capture One, and more software support coming in the future, I thought it was time to take a more serious look at it. I’ve been using the Loupedeck+ for a few weeks now, and I think it’s safe to say that it’s won me over.
A few weeks ago, we got excited about all the new features in Lightroom CC’s “massive update”. The loved the long-overdue upgrades such as more profiles, faster import, and a better user interface. But, and this is a big but (BUT even), it didn’t take long before the community started experiencing problems that left them quite upset. Today, the software company apologized for the quality hiccup, and better yet, released a bug fix update that resolves these issues.
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.
The previously announced speed boost of Lightroom Classic is here. Today, Adobe has released the latest update of Lightroom Classic, version 7.2. It mainly focuses on performance, but also makes it easier to organize your files. The latest update makes Lightroom Classic faster, which was one of the main concerns of its users. However, it seems not everyone will experience the speed boost, at least not yet. It all depends on your computer’s hardware.
