  • The lens profile for the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 would not auto-select when using Lens Profile Corrections.

  • Fixed issue that prevented Lightroom 5 from reading Photoshop Elements 13 libraries.
  • Cover images set by Lightroom mobile were sometimes incorrectly reset by Lightroom desktop.
  • Sync with Lightroom mobile sometimes stalled when asset is added to same album on both LrM and LrD and later deleted
  • Resolved issue that caused Lightroom to crash when creating a Print and saving it to a mounted DVD directly inside Lightroom.
  • Publishing images to Behance using the Behance Publish Service has been restored.

 Thank You

Aperture import plugin now available

As promised in a blog post here, we are proud to introduce the Aperture and iPhoto import plugin for Lightroom 5.  The plugin allows Aperture and iPhoto customers to migrate their images and key metadata (such as keywords, events, project structure) into Lightroom catalogs in a seamless way.

For a limited time, Aperture users who subscribe to the Creative Cloud Photography plan get a free 3-month membership to KelbyOne training.  Please visit here for more details

EDIT: The Aperture and iPhoto import plugin is now integrated into Lightroom 5. Please ensure that you are using Lightroom 5.7 or later by using the Help->Check for updates menu option in Lightroom 5.

 

Installation:  There are 2 ways to install the Aperture plugin.

Creative Cloud members – please visit the Adobe Add-ons page here and follow the instructions to install:

  1. Ensure that you’re using Lightroom 5.6.  You can check your Lightroom version by going to Help->System Info inside Lightroom.  If not using Lightroom 5.6, please update to the 5.6.
  2. Close Lightroom.
  3. Click on the Install button on Adobe Add Ons.  This will launch the Creative Cloud Application, which will download and install the plugin.
  4. Launch Lightroom.

Note – if you are unable to install, first try restarting the Creative Cloud application.  If that does not work, then please follow the instructions listed for perpetual customers below.

Lightroom 5 Perpetual Customers – please follow the manual installation instructions below.

note – we’ve updated the plugin below, so please try this one if you reported problems earlier.

  1. Ensure that you’re using Lightroom 5.6.  You can check your Lightroom version by going to Help->System Info inside Lightroom.  If not using Lightroom 5.6, please update to the 5.6.
  2. Download the plugin zip file to a known location (such as your desktop)
  3. Double click on the downloaded zip file to extract it.
  4. Navigate to the Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom folder.  To do so, use the Go menu item within Finder.  Please note that the Library folder is hidden by default and that you will need to hold down the Option/Alt key to make it visible.
  5. Check to see if there is a Modules folder.  If not, please create this folder.
  6. Copy the extracted aperture_iphoto_importer.lrplugin file to the Modules folder.
  7. Start Lightroom.

Download link ->  aperture_iphoto_importer v1.0.1

Updated Download link -> here

Usage

  • GPS Data
  • Faces (face naming tags are mapped to keywords)
  • Rejects (files designated as Rejects in Aperture will be imported into Collections > From Aperture > Photos Rejected in Aperture)

  • Color Labels (Aperture Only – Color Labels are mapped to keywords: Red, Orange, etc…, including support for custom label names)
  • Stacking (Aperture Only – Stacks information is mapped to keywords: Aperture Stack 1, Aperture Stack 2, etc…)
  • Aperture project/folder/album hierarchy will be mapped as closely as possible into Lightroom collection sets and collections
  • iPhoto events/folders/albums will be mapped as closely as possible into Lightroom collection sets and collections
  • Import ‘Full size’ previews from Aperture/iPhoto (optional, off by default), provided that they are up-to-date
  • Aperture ‘Versions’ will translate into Virtual Copies in Lightroom (without adjustments)
  • Metadata that can be entered in the ‘Info’ panel in Aperture

Information that is not imported into Lightroom:

  • Image adjustments
  • Smart Albums
  • Face Tag Region of Interest (face naming tags are mapped to keywords)
  • Color Labels (other than optionally as keywords)
  • Stacks (other than optionally as keywords)
  • Any kind of creation (books, web galleries, etc) other than the collections that correspond to them

 

Thanks and looking forward to the feedback!

Please note – the profile for the newly added Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens is not automatically located when applying lens profile corrections.  This is a bug and we will fix it in a future release.  The workaround is to:

  • Added information to the “System Info” dialogue to help designate if the customer installed Lightroom from the Creative Cloud.
  • Unable to open sRaw files from the Nikon D810.  Please note that this only impacted customers that converted D810 sRaw files to DNG in either Camera Raw 8.6 RC or DNG Converter 8.6 RC.

  • Lightroom occasionally crashed when changing image selection on Windows. Please note that this only occurred on the Windows platform.

What happens to Lightroom after my membership ends?

Since the launch of the Creative Cloud, Adobe has engaged in an ongoing dialog with the photographic community. We’ve tackled mobile workflows, provided ongoing enhancements and lastly, provided a membership plan tailor made for all levels of photographers. With the latest update to Lightroom 5.5 I believe we’ve also addressed a lingering concern in the community: What happens to my photographs after my membership ends?  With Lightroom 5.5, at the end of a membership, the desktop application will continue to launch and provide access to the photographs managed within Lightroom as well as the Slideshow, Web, Book or Print creations that we know many photographers painstakingly create. The Develop and Map modules have been disabled in order to signal the end of the membership and the need to renew in order to receive Adobe’s continuous innovation in those areas. Access to Lightroom mobile workflows will also cease to function. We hope this meets the expectations of our customers and we look forward to an ongoing dialog.

Lightroom mobile iPhone, update for iPad now available

Today we’re announcing the immediate availability of Lightroom mobile on iPhone.  With the addition of the iPhone, Lightroom now seamlessly connects your desktop, iPad and iPhone.

As with iPad, Lightroom mobile on iPhone extends your workflow beyond your desktop.  You can now use either your iPhone or iPad to review and edit images and sync the changes back to the Lightroom catalog at home.   And now with the 1.1 update for iPad, you can also apply star ratings to your images and also use the custom order that you’ve set within your collections.

Once you’ve told Lightroom a collection of pictures should be sent to Lightroom mobile, the process is handled automatically and the pictures will become available on your iPad and iPhone once it is connected to the internet.

Lightroom mobile on iPhone utilizes Smart Previews to provide raw editing functionality to your smartphone.  First introduced in Lightroom 5 beta, Smart Previews are:

  • Based on the DNG file format
  • Limited to 2560 pixels on the long edge
  • Smaller versions original raw files
  • Can be used to make adjustments even when the original files aren’t available locally
  • Adjustments made to Smart Previews are applied to the original when the original files are available

How to get started:

 Download Lightroom 5.5

Lightroom mobile is a companion to Lightroom desktop.  Lightroom 5.5 is the latest version of Lightroom desktop that includes the ability to sync images to Lightroom mobile.  Please update to the latest version of Lightroom 5 using either the Creative Cloud app or by clicking on the “Help-> Check for Updates” menu option.

Sign In

Lightroom mobile utilizes cloud services to sync Smart Previews and changes between Lightroom desktop and Lightroom mobile.  Lightroom mobile requires a qualifying Creative Cloud or Photoshop Photography Plan subscription:

  • Creative Cloud Photography plan
  • Creative Cloud complete plan
  • Creative Cloud Student and Teacher Edition
  • Creative Cloud for teams complete plan

A free 30-day trial of Lightroom mobile is available

Sync a collection

Lightroom mobile is organized around Collections.  Images within Collections will be synced and be available in Lightroom mobile.

Download Lightroom mobile

Visit the App Store on your iPhone or iPad and download Lightroom mobile.  Once you login with the same Creative Cloud account, you’ll see all of your synced Collections.

Check out your photos at lightroom.adobe.com

In addition to Lightroom mobile, we’ve also launched Lightroom web, a new way to view and share your images from any web browser.  Available at  http://lightroom.adobe.com.

System Requirements

Lightroom mobile for iPad is available now on iPad 2 or later, and works on iOS7 or later.

Lightroom mobile for iPhone is available now on iPhone 4s or later and works on iOS7 or later.

Once you’ve gotten started with Lightroom mobile, don’t forget to leave us feedback about your experiences. Lightroom wouldn’t be what it is today without the loyal community of regular customers who help us find and fix common issues. If you keep talking to us, we’ll keep listening.

Here are a few ways that you can send us feedback and learn more:

  • Image flips between portrait and landscape after switching orientation while shooting tethered with Leica S cameras.

Camera Raw 8.5 and DNG Converter 8.5 now available

Camera Raw 8.5 is now available as a final release for Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC.  This release provides new features including new preview controls, the ability to modify graduated and radial filters, and a new visualization mask for graduated and radial filters.  In addition, this release also includes bug fixes, support for new cameras and new lenses.  DNG Converter 8.5 is provided for customers using versions of Photoshop older than Photoshop CS6.

As mentioned here, updates to Camera Raw 8 for Photoshop CS6 only include new camera support, lens profile support, and bug fixes.  The new features listed in the release notes are only available in Photoshop CC.

Release Notes

Features:

  • Modify Graduated and Radial Filter masks with a brush:
    • After adding or selecting a Graduated or Radial Filter instance, click the new ‘Brush’ mode (next to existing ‘New’ and ‘Edit’ mode buttons) to reveal brush controls that allow you to modify the selected mask.
    • Use the ‘Brush +’ and ‘Brush -‘ icon buttons in the brush controls pane to add to or erase from the selected mask.
    • Press the ‘Clear’ button to remove all brush modifications from the currently selected mask.
    • When a Graduated or Radial Filter instance is selected, Shift-K can be used to enter and leave brush modification mode.
    • For more information, check out this video here
  • Mask visualization is now available for the Graduated and Radial Filters. Use the Mask checkbox at the bottom of the Local Corrections pane or press ‘Y’ to toggle the mask overlay.
  • Added Per-Panel Preview default toggle button
    • If the current panel’s settings are not the ACR defaults, clicking the new Per-panel Toggle Button will reset the panel to the ACR defaults.
    • Clicking the button again will restore the previous settings.
    • This is a standalone feature, separate from the new Preview controls.
    • The changes are applied to the main view; if you have both the Before and After panes visible, changes will appear in the After panel.
