I’m excited to announce a brand new addition to the Lightroom CC family of products as well as several updates and new features to Lightroom on mobile and web!
The All-New Lightroom CC
The all-new Lightroom CC is designed to complete a cloud-based ecosystem of apps that are deeply integrated and work together seamlessly across desktop, mobile, and web.
As a result, the the desktop-centric product you’ve known as Lightroom will be rebranded “Lightroom Classic CC”.
Watch this video to find out more about the all-new Lightroom CC.
There have been several updates to Lightroom Classic including significant performance improvements in a number of areas including:
- Application launch time
- Preview generation
- Switching between Library and Develop Module
- Moving from photo to photo in the Develop Module
- Painting using the Adjustment Brush
Check out this video to discover how to preview images faster than ever before using Lightroom Classic’s new Embedded Preview workflow.
Note: setting the Auto Import’s Initial Previews to Embedded & Sidecar will also take advantage of the new Embedded Preview workflow.
Lightroom CC on Mobile Devices
Several new features and product enhancements have been made to Lightroom on mobile devices. On both iOS and Android, you can now search through your synced photos using Adobe Sensei to find images based on image content —without having to tag or keyword them.
Or, add add your own custom keywords, using the new Keywords menu.
To keep track of your photographs, create albums and organize them in folders.
Lightroom for mobile has been optimized for iOS 11, enabling access to any photos that are available within the Files app.
On iPads running iOS 11, you can now drag and drop photos (including raw photos), from any other app, directly into Lightroom for mobile, to import.
Lightroom for mobile has been optimized for the latest version of Android OS, Android O.
In addition, Lightroom for mobile has been optimized for Chromebooks, with a new interface that provides an optimal editing experience for devices with keyboards, as well as trackpads and touch interfaces.
And finally, use the Selective Brush to enhance your photos.
Lightroom on Web
You can now create a single gallery that hosts multiple albums to share with friends, family, and clients. The galleries are “live” representations of your images so if you edit your photographs, the galleries automatically update.
In addition, check out the new Tech preview – Best Photos which leverages a number of Adobe Sensei technologies to help automatically identify and group similar photos, and then select the best photos of each of the groups.
