Adobe has been using its AI-powered Sensei technology to introduce various upgrades to its apps. In the most recent upgrade, Camera Raw, Lightroom Classic, and Lightroom CC became able to enhance details in your images and give you up to 30% higher resolution on raw files.
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.
While some are still getting over the shock of Lightroom’s CC makeover, others are happily plodding along with the renamed Lightroom Classic. Some users have put off making the switch to new CC due to their familiarity with Classic, although some feel it simply lacks important features available with its older sibling.
Some of those missing features, including the tone curve and split toning, are now available inside Lightroom CC as part of a major update. The update comes for their entire Lightroom CC ecosystem. That includes Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and on the web. But there are a few updates for Lightroom Classic and Adobe Camera Raw, too.
There’s been a lot of doubt and confusion since Adobe’s announcement about Lightroom CC. Standalone Lightroom has disappeared. The old Lightroom CC is now “Lightroom Classic”, and a lot suspect that Adobe plan to eventually phase it out.
According to a blog post on the Adobe Lightroom Journal, though, Adobe say they’re absolutely not planning to kill it. They say that they “remain committed to investing in Lightroom Classic in the future”. They it has an “exciting roadmap”, and even prompt users to hold Adobe accountable. Of course, we’ve heard this kind of thing before.
