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.

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.

Lightroom 6.7 released

Lightroom 2015.6.7 has just been released with the usual range of new camera and lens support, and a couple of new features.

Lightroom 6.6.1 released

Lightroom 6.6.1 has just been released and contains two small bug fixes which aren’t as small as they may at first appear.

There’s also support for the Fuji XT2 – already – and a new Apple TV app to show Lightroom Mobile photos.

Lightroom 6.6 released

Lightroom 6.6 / 2015.6 has just been released – and it’s a more interesting update than usual. In addition to the new camera and lens support, there are two big changes:

– Dramatic speed improvements in Develop
– A “guided” upright mode allows you to control straightening on images

Panorama Merge and Spot Corrections

Lightroom 2015.5 is released with a feature that I have wanted ever since Panorama Merge was added – correct handling of dust spot corrections.

It should have a big impact on the way we use the merge tool.

In short, from now correct your dust spots before you run the merge.

Eric Chan on GPU

See Adobe’s Eric Chan’s port “GPU notes for Lightroom CC (2015)” for a behind-the-scenes explanation of how Adobe are adding GPU support:

This is Lightroom 6

The rumours have been bubbling around for a while, and in the last couple of days the news has been dribbling out in not the most elegant fashion….

But now one can say officially that Lightroom 6 is here. Or is it Lightroom CC?

Buying Lightroom normally

Adobe have said “Future versions of Lightroom will be made available via traditional perpetual licenses indefinitely” and they have continued to offer the standard, perpetual licence for Lightroom 6. However, it is fxxxing difficult to find on Adobe’s site.
