Sign into Adobe with Google or Facebook IDs

From today people can use a Google or Facebook account to log into Adobe. For Lightroom CC users this opens up a great opportunity to squeeze more value out of your subscription, because this little change makes it so much easier to get feedback on your work via Lightroom on the Web, the web browser part of Lightroom Mobile.

How to remove photos from “All Synced Photographs”

After removing pictures from a synced collection or after stopping a collection from syncing, the images remain on Lightroom Mobile and in "All Synced Photographs". How do I find these photos so I can remove them from Adobe's server?

X-LR is released

My plugin X-LR, which automatically applies Fuji film simulations in Lightroom, went through a great 60 day preview period. It's now released!

Lightroom 6.9 / 2015.9

Lightroom 6.9 / 2015.9 came out yesterday. There's no headline new feature and my interpretation is that it's mainly to support a number of new cameras. Fuji in particular have released a bunch of X bodies and a week ago launched their 50 megapixel GFX. After some mixed messages, it had slowly become clear that Lightroom's main competitor, CaptureOne, was not willing to support the GFX because of its threat to PhaseOne's core business (spot the conflict of interest!). So Adobe's speedy support is welcome for owners of this camera, and no doubt for Fuji themselves.

Plugin Preview – jb-X-LR

A few months ago I got my first mirrorless or electronic viewfinder-based camera, a Fuji X-T2, and I have found myself using its film simulations much more actively than I ever expected. The trouble is, while you see their appearance in Lightroom's Import dialog box and briefly in Library, Adobe's raw conversion then takes over. But what if you could automatically apply Fuji film simulations in Lightroom? That is what jb X-LR does.

CC price rise in UK

Brexit's effect on the Pound pushes up price of Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions, just as it pushed up Mac pricing etc.

Lightroom 6.8 / 2015.8

Lightroom 6.8 / 2015.8 has just been released. For CC subscribers the big new feature is the introduction of the Reference Photo view in Develop, and it's a feature I like very much. It means that you can now split Develop's central pane between the image you're editing and another photo. While it looks quite similar to the existing Before/After view, which I use all the time, here the idea to help you adjust the active photo by comparing it with some aspects of an existing picture.
