Lightroom 8.1

Lightroom 8.1 is out. Some people may like to reorder the panels in Develop’s right hand side, though I really can’t see the point. Also, you can ensure that photos added by Auto Import are added to a collection. But for me the best new detail is that photos can now snap to a grid […]
