The latest Creative Cloud update from Adobe brought with it a lot of new features, changes and fixes for the whole suite. Three of the biggest are content-aware fill for video in After Effects, Freeform view for Premiere Pro and some pretty massive GPU performance upgrades. DIYP spoke with Adobe at NAB 2019 about these new updates and what they mean for users.
A while back Adobe announced that they will release a Lightroom update which focuses on speed. That announcement was met with deep disbelief (see the comments here), and even when Adobe released it’s latest Lightroom CC 7.2, responses were lukewarm. But a real-life test done by Nasim Mansurov of photography life shows that Adobe is finally starting to listen to their customer base. I am not surprised as more and more alternatives are trying to fill the gap in Lightroom user’s hearts.
The article contains information that may speed up Lightroom by spreading disk reading load across multiple drives. It achieves this by utilising symbolic links within windows. This simple approach does not require any advanced knowledge of windows, Lightroom, or involve RAID or other such technologies.

This is one of those debates that’s been around for as long as I can remember. It’s like Nikon vs. Canon, iPhone vs. Android, Ketchup vs. Mayo, and everybody’s going to have their own needs and opinions. There’s generally no right answer in any of these debates, unless you have a specific need that forces you to go one way over another.
For us, when it comes to computers, that need is working with images and maybe video. In what will be a complete shock to some, and absolutely no surprise to others, the PC pretty much annihilated the Mac in each of the tasks performed in SLR Lounge’s $4,000 Mac vs PC Lightroom challenge.
