Lightroom Classic 7.4 is released with the following new features:
- HEIC files are supported on Mac 10.13 and above
We are working on the support for other platforms. If you sync HEIC files to a catalog that runs on a non-supported platform, you won’t be able to work with the files. HEVC files (that has .mov extension) are not yet supported in Lightroom Classic. We are working on the support.
- Stack files after a merge operation
You can select to stack files after a merge operation (both panorama and HDR).
The stacked image would be displayed at the top of the stack.
- Faster Folder Search
In the previous versions, some of you had faced a problem that Folder Search becomes unresponsive for some time.
You were seeing the beach ball till the search becomes responsive. (Folder Search was introduced in Lightroom Classic 7.2.)
Please try the new Folder Search implementation. It is more responsive and faster.
- Folder coloring
You can col0r the folder to identify them for any specific activity.
