Lightroom Classic 7.2 is released today. Let me introduce some of the changes went in:
- Performance Improvements
In the past, many users have reported that Lightroom becomes slower after a prolonged usage. This issue should have been fixed with this version. Also, resource-intensive activities, such as export, import, preview generation, and HD/panorama merge should be faster if your machine has 12 GM or more RAM.
We, specifically, have implemented changes related to Threading Building Blocks (TBB). This should be effective on machines with 12 GB or more RAM.
- Filter Folders
You can search for folders.
You can also mark some folders as favorite. And, easily filter them out.
Note that if you select multiple folders and mark them as favorite as a group, you need to unmark them favorite as a group itself. If you don’t remember the folders that you marked favorite as a group, see the same from filmstrip panel.
There are some known issues with this feature:
- When you clear the Search field after a search, Lightroom Classic re-calculates the image number; it takes some time to display the image numbers.
- At a time, the drives names disappear following a search for a short duration of time.
- Sort edited and unedited images
- Create collection or collection set quickly
You can create collection or collection set quickly from folders.
If the folder has sub folders, the Create Collection option appears in the context menu. The directory structure is retained while creating the collection set, with all parent directories are retained as collection set.
