Lightroom 6.13 now available

The goal of this release is to provide perpetual customers additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.  

A few clarifications for this release:

Do I need upgrade to Lightroom 6.13 when Lightroom Classic CC  has already launched?

You should only update to Lightroom 6.13 if you are currently holding a license to our perpetual, non-subscription-based product.  

Is this the last upgrade of Lightroom perpetual product?

As we align our investments in the direction of supporting our subscription-based products, the last version of Lightroom 6 will be coming out towards the end of the year.   If there is a camera not supported in Lightroom 6, you can use the DNG converter before importing your images into Lightroom 6.

As a perpetual license customer, can I try out Lightroom Classic in tandem with Lightroom 6 to see if I am interested in upgrading?

Yes.  We highly encourage you to try out Lightroom Classic to get the additional performance benefits and feature enhancements launched recently and to come.  If you are interested in trying out Lightroom Classic, while still keeping a version of Lightroom 6 in tandem on your desktop, check out Lightroom Classic CC 7.0.1.

  1. Can you please send me the Download link for 6.13?

    • xyzett says:

      Where can i download Lightroom 6? I just have the key. And download with cloud there is only v 7 available.

  2. Just tested and if you happen to still be running Lightroom CC 2015, then it looks like this will update it to CC 2015.13.

  3. stephan zobeley says:

    link to LR CC is not working

  4. brian kimble says:

    I have lightroom 6 and want to update to 6.13 how do I do this?

    • Doug Vann says:

      The update was available for my 15″ new MacBook Pro but was not showing up on my wife 15″ MacBook Pro…… Maybe Adobe isn’t releasing to everyone at once?

  5. How can i get LR 6.13 ? The update button within my LR6 (perpetual, non-subscription-based ) leads only to CC Versions. In my account the list of available Downloads still shows only Lightrom_6_LS11.dmg which is Version 6.10.1.

  6. JL says:

    Does 6.13 have a performance increase over prior versions or is this release just for lense support?

  7. Isaiah Ryan says:

    where is the link to download 6.13?

    Thanks 🙂

  8. Gary Wilson says:

    My Lightroom 6.12 will not update to 6.13

  9. albert Esschendal says:

    Downloaded this standalone LR 6.13 without cloud and without subscription.
    Adobe 2015: standalone versions will be available!!! Looks now that Adobe lied then.

    So bye bye Adobe. I will looking for alternatives who would make SW tools what the customer wants.
    Bye Bye

    • Doug Vann says:

      Excellent opportunity for competitors to step up to the plate and offer something worthwhile….

      • Philippe MOY says:

        Abobe want us to pay all our life to access our work.
        It is not acceptable.
        I agree lets look for alternative with a business plan not based on racket.
        By Abobe.

  10. Dominique says:

    Please post a link to the LR 6.13 update.

  11. Stijn De Groof says:

    Will tethered capture for the Nikon D850 be supported by the last version of Lightroom 6 (6.14, I presume)? For now, it’s just RAW (NEF) support, but not yet tethered capture.

  12. Constance Hoyland says:

    I just tried to upgrade from Lightroom 6.12 to 6.13 using
    I got the message: Lightroom 6.13 Update is not applicable: Error Code U44M2P28

    I most certainly don’t want to lose 6.12 as some people are experiencing, and I don’t want to get Lightroom Classic. How do I get 6.13?

  13. De lesões para os trabalhadores de limpeza.

  14. Jonathan Knights says:

    No sign of any link or mention to Lightroom v6.13 (perpetual) update.
    I dont want to install Lightroom Classic CC.

    • Bill Camwell says:

      You’re right. Adobe REALLY wants to p..s off its existing non-CC customers, don’t they? NO WAY am I getting into the subscription model.

    • Minou says:

      Hi. I use the perpetual Version of Lightroom 6. You can simply use the “Update”-Feature from within Lightroom to get 6.13. No need to install any kind of “CC-Lightroom” etc….

    • Dee Hanley says:

      if you have Lt 6 installed then install 6.13 from the dropdown Help in your menu while Lightroom is open.
      You don’t need to find a different site to do it.

    • Gary Shaw says:

      To the left of the Lightroom Classic download box there is a black triangle…click this and Lightroom 6.13 update is available below to dowmload

  15. Gustavo Alonzo says:

    My lightroom 6.12 won´t update automatically to 6.13 and there is no link to get it. Is it really available?

  16. Andy Dichter says:

    While updating LR 6.8 I ended up with LR Classic CC and not LR 6.13. Through the chat room I was given the original LR6 along side LR CC but the LR6 is two years old and cannot be updated to anything but LR Classic CC.

    My objection to LR CC is singular… I cannot use LR unless I’m signed into the Internet. If my Internet is down I cannot use LR!! I’m happy to pay for the CC upgrade but I cannot be dependent on an unreliable Internet to use LR when needed.
    Any way to avoid that?? Thanks, Andy8400

  17. Andrus Chesley says:

    Ditto to Jonathan and don’t want the Classic CC either.

  18. Gary Wilson says:

    My copy of Lightroom 6.12 will NOT update to Lightroom 6.13. When I left this comment here yesterday it was deleted, but Adobe offers me no help to update to Lightroom 6.13 so my new Nikon D850 has no Lightroom support. BE AWARE!!

  19. ano says:

    Link to download?

  20. Mark says:

    Where is the link?

  21. Frédéric Bégin says:

    It’s seems that the link for the 6.13 is only available to the US website. If I download the file from the US website and try to update, I’ve ended up with a error that prevent the update to complete. No luck for french canadian indeed.

    • Frédéric Bégin says:

      I finally fixed my problem by desinstalling Lightroom 6.12 without removing my preferences and reinstalling everything and applying the update from the US website. Now I am a happy camper.

  22. Antonow says:

    My LR 6.12 got updated to LR Classic CC instead of v6.13. My perpetual license switched to trial.
    How do I get my LR 6.12 back?

  23. Bernd says:

    It’s a bad joke: after upgrading my LR 6.12 I have now the Classic CC version instead of 6.13! BTW 6.12 was de-installed.

    I then found the download page for 6.13 ( – but all I got was version 6.0 – and none of the upgrades (6.0.1, 6.1, .. 6.13) was working on my mac.

  24. Patrick Whittick says:

    I also can’t get to my existing desktop version of Lightroom – all it does is try and get me to use a trial of the new web version.
    If anyone can tell me how I can get to it, I’d be hugely grateful.

  25. aseancat says:

    I only wanted to update to 6.13 perpetual. mistakenly press update to lightroom CC classic, how do i stop creative cloud from downloading the update?

  26. Colin Butcher says:

    The whole “Lightroom CC” / “Lightroom Classic CC” / “Lightroom 6.x” thing is immensely confusing.
    Where do I get the update from Lightroom 6.12 to 6.13 from ?
    I do not want any accidents with cloud-based software or upgrades that will disrupt my ability to work.

    There’s a similar set of confusion with product naming around Acrobat Pro DC and which version is which. The software might be good, but the marketing and confusion is extremely unhelpful.

  27. Gilles Brissette says:

    Where is it available?

  28. HS-Photo says:

    With my Macbook pro Upgrade from 6.10 to 6.13 worked fine, as it should. But on my W10 it did not work from 6.12. Another argument for me, not to walk the CC-way.

  29. Alex says:

    Hi. Has anyone managed to solve the problem of turning Lightroom 6.** into Lightroom CC after the upgrade?

  30. AndreasC says:

    I have the same problem. It’s not possible to upgrade my standalone Lightroom from 6.12 to 6.13 on my MacBook PRO with MacOS 10.13.1. I gets the error message: U44M2P28.
    I have downloaded the application installer “setup.dmg” from adobe lightroom download page.
    How could this be solved? I have payed money for this license so I presume that Adobe will handle this issue.

  31. Dwg2121 says:

    How many “perpetual” customers need to leave Adobe before management changes their financial model. I would hope they reconsider and continue to offer a one-time charge version with updates.

  32. Michelle Collier says:

    I purchased a LR 6 upgrade for my LR 5 for my MAC. After much chat time with 4 Adobe peeps I still do not have LR 6 installed. I have LR 2015 CC. I even cancelled my CC subscription waited 24 hours, trashed the previous install and yet I do not have LR 6. What a product management nightmare!!!! I still have my LR 5 on the MAC.

    How do I get LR 6? This should be an easy question, why is it so complicated?

  33. Keith says:

    It is pretty sad with what Adobe is doing nowadays to kill off a significant portion of its users who are on the perpetual licence platform all in the name of maximising profits. I would gladly pay for a LR 7 standalone but with the way the push is being done, I am pretty done with Adobe.

  34. Fred says:

    I have update last week to 6.12,…. But I see no update to 6.13 with Adobe Application Manager…

  35. SMahoney says:

    Nov 12 2017. For anyone who purchased the newly released standalone version of Lightroom 6.0 and your new camera is not supported, here is how I fixed the issue. I have the new Nikon D7500 (although that may not be of significance here) and after purchasing LR 6.0, my raw camera format was still not supported (since LR 6.0 was released before my camera was on the market). So, I knew that I needed to update LR 6, however, the only option when choosing Help>Updates was to upgrade to Lightroom CC. Since I had previously downloaded and tried LR CC, it was causing a conflict. So, I uninstalled LR CC. When I went back to LR 6.0 and chose Help>Updates, the update to LR 6.13 was now an option :–)

    I hope this helps some of you dealing with the same issue!

    Not sure where to download?

  38. John Mayger says:

    After paying for adobe products for ten years or more I am disgusted by the way I am being treated.
    I have a license for LR6 but any links to download ( such as those offered above) do not work.
    I spent an hour with chat support yesterday and it was a complete waste of time.
    Adobe you have become the face of corporate greed we thought we would never see.

  39. Bradel says:

    i am just a happy owner of a sony alpha a7r3. but i am unhappy that my lightroom version 6.1.3 will not support my ARW file from sony.
    Could me some one help to use my new sony with my lightroom.
    Thank you for your help

  40. Richard Sigler says:

    I was understood that Adobe would continue to support standalone version when I upgraded to version 6.0. I do much of work offline and CC has no appeal. I like many other long time Adobe users will be forced to look at other software. This is too bad as I do enjoy LR and have spent lots of time learning the software. Please reconsider your support for standalone user. I am hardly the only one……Thanks!

  41. Niels Klagenberg says:

    Upgrade from 6.12 to 6.13 is not working. Update is not applicable. Error Code: U44M1P28.
    On MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016). OS Version 10.13.1.

  42. Jan Pettersson says:

    When I chat with Abode they said that 6.13 is a subscribed product.

  43. Salikea says:

    Lightroom CC now supports sony a7rii. When will there be an update for the Lightroom 6.13 to support the a7riii raw files?

  44. Collin says:

    Hi Lightroom Team,
    Recently while trying to update my Lightroom 6.12 to 6.13, I downloaded and ran the install program and my Lightroom is now 6.0. I tried to update it to 6.13 by running the update from 6.0.1 through 6.13 to now avail. What should I do at least to restore to 6.12? Would greatly appreciate you advice and assistance.
