Lightroom 3.2 and Camera Raw 6.2 Available on Adobe Labs

Lightroom 3.2 and Camera Raw 6.2 are now available as Release Candidates on Adobe Labs.  (Download here: Lightroom 3.2, Camera Raw 6.2, including the DNG Converter 6.2)  The ‘release candidate’ label indicates that this update is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to all of our customers.

WAIT!  What happened to Lightroom 3.1?  Well, it never happened.  In order to simplify the presentation of updates for raw file format compatibility, the Lightroom and Camera Raw “dot” version numbers have been aligned at “2”.  We update the Camera Raw plug-in and Lightroom regularly to provide access to new proprietary raw file formats and have aligned the decimal place so that there’s no confusion over which Lightroom update corresponds to a Camera Raw plug-in update and vice versa.

The final releases of Lightroom 3.2 and Camera Raw 6.2 may have additional corrections or camera support.

Bugs Corrected in the Lightroom 3.2 Release Candidate

The following bugs that were released as part of Lightroom 3.0 have been corrected. The team appreciates the very detailed feedback the community has provided on the Lightroom 3.0 release and we’re excited to correct a number of issues experienced by our customers. These issues have been FIXED

  • Develop: A custom aspect ratios get rounded to nearest standard ratio when adjusting crop overlay
  • Develop: A history state is incorrectly added after creating a preset that includes a graduated filter or lens profile correction

    My version of LR3.0 says there are no updates available… Should I wait or download manually?

    • Gagandeep Singh says:

      Hi Christian,
      These versions of LR and CR are release candidates(RC). You have to manually download these or you can wait for final release, which will show on your updates.

    • Ange says:

      This is a RC (release candidate) version, so is close to being the full release but there might be some changes before that. You won’t be prompted to update within LR3 until the full version is released.

    • “…are now available as Release Candidates on Adobe Labs”
      You will not receive Release Candidates through the update interface in Lightroom.
      Download manually or wait for the final release.

    • Franz says:

      This is not a released version, it’s a Release Candidate. Only released version automatically appear as an update for LR.
      If you suffer from one of the bugs corrected, I would download and install, otherwise wait for the release.

    • Steve Sprengel says:

      This is a public beta (release candidate) that needs to be downloaded and installed manually.

  4. Thomas says:

    there are no updates available for your LR3.0
    this is a LR3.2 RELEASE CANDIDATE – to be downloaded and installed separately – and NO, you DO NOT want to use this RC in productive manner, it is a test version of the upcoming final version meant to provide feedback about the fixed bugs

  5. renambot says:

    It’s a Release Candidate, not an official update yet, so you have to download it manually.

  18. Looks like a great release; I look forward to the release version.

    Here’s a bug I discovered in 3.0:
    I created develop preset that includes lens correction (auto profile, 0% distortion, 100% c. abberation, and 0% vignette). The preset was built from a photo that used a Nikkor 18-200mm lens, so that lens is applied to all images that use the preset. Since I created the preset with “Setup: Auto”, shouldn’t the lens be picked up from the affected image, instead of always showing up as 18-200mm. Additionally, if I apply the preset, and then select the correct lens (e.g., Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8), as soon as I move one of the Amount sliders, the lens reverts to 18-200mm. Feel free to contact me if you require any additional information.

    Keep up the great work! Thanks.

    The “Release Candidates” are not picked up by the LR “Check for Updates” process. Only when it is finally released will LR 3.2 be automatically distributed by that mechanism. You can decide whether to download manually by reviewing the changes listed and determining whether any affect your workflow. Or download manually to provide feedback to Adobe prior to the final release.

    Hey, is there a roadmap which Canon lenses will be profiled by Adobe in the future? And even more importantly, how can I access user generated profiles which have been uploaded throu the Lens Profiler? Thanks

  26. Kirill says:

    It’s probably not an appropriate place for feature request, but perhaps somebody from Adobe takes notice of it:
    – it would be cool to have an additional brush in develop mode, namely colder warmer. I think it would also be relatively easy to implement.
    – it would be great to be able to assign custom key shortcuts to presets. Currently possibly only with 3rd party software.

  27. Zack Jones says:

    @Christian: Download manually. This is a pre-release of a Lightroom update. Once it is officially released you’ll see a notification in Lightroom.

  39. Dave says:

    This looks like a lot of good enhancements/fixes. If I could through something into the hat… In the watermark utility, add the option of numbering the images for proofing. So if you highlight 50 images, it would allow you to place a semi-transparent number on each image from 1 to 50… When customers do online proofing, if they have questions they could refer to an image by its number because some flash based websites do not show the file name.

    Just a thought.

    What I want the most is to see pixel dimensions when doing crops. For the company I shoot for they require a specific picture size (2166×1600 pixels). While I can set a custom crop RATIO I have no idea when I’m actually cropping less than my require pixels. If I crop less than my requirement LR will uprez the picture and I lose quality (or I can choose to use the actual crop size which won’t met my company’s needs. Please, Adobe, this is an easy one! Either include the exact pixel dimensions as I drag my crop or give us a ruler.

  60. Is this a bug: when working in the develop module and clicking on a picture in the filmstrip in many cases not only that picture is selected but I’m also switched back to the Library module. This is rather annoying for then I have to switch back to the develop module again! Has anyone else seen this?

  62. Meg says:

    Myself and other professional photographers in my community who use lightroom 3.0 have noticed significant sharpening/noise added to all images processed in lightroom. This is incredibly frustrating! I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark 2, so even at ISO 1600 these images should be smooth. However, regardless of ISO setting, processed files are noticeably over sharpened/noisy. When it comes to print enlargements for clients this is a major issue! This did not happen in earlier lightroom versions. The same RAW file edited in different software does not have the same problem, this is exclusively a lightroom issue. As a professional I unfortunately can not use lightroom to edit my images as it compromises the images’ integrity beyond what I can give to a client. Any suggestions or thoughts on when this will be fixed?

  63. David says:

    from Adobe:

    “What happened to Lightroom 3.1? Well, it never happened. In order to simplify the presentation of updates for raw file format compatibility, the Lightroom and Camera Raw “dot” version numbers have been aligned at “2″.

    >Library: Lightroom 2 search criteria “+abc” meant “starts with abc” and “abc+” meant Library:
    Yes, that’s now corrected, but when one is using both ”+abc+”, in Lightroom 2 it means ”starts with AND ends with abc”, while in Lightroom 3 it means ”starts with OR ends with abc”

    > Setting “Rating is Zero” incorrectly includes all images in a catalog
    Yes, now that works, but only the first time. If you modify the SC to ”rating is X”, where X≠0, and then back again to ”rating is 0” — the smart collection includes all images again. By the way, that is the case for all operators, not only ”is”.

  67. Thomas Kuhn says:

    I still have the problem on my last years MacBook Pro, that Lightroom grabs so much RAM just by viewing pics. With every pic I preview it grabs around 25 MB, another 25 MB with the next and so on. When I do some work in the development module, it ends up with Lightroom needs 2.5 GB of RAM. At that point no more work is possible, because Lightroom never frees any RAM. It´s only growing. The only chance to work on the next picture is to quit Lightroom and start all over…and again and again. I have the problem since Lightroom 3.0 and hoped it would be fixed in 3.2 but it´s getting even worse.

    LR3 Bug Fix Request (can’t see them in beta 3.2)

    1. Slideshow > Soundtrack > Fit To Music doesn’t work. Some say it slows the music right down; I find it simply ignores the length of the track and plays the slide show till it’s done without changing display time / transition to fit track length.

    2. Can’t batch rename Virtual Copies. This makes VC’s unusable. E.g. app; Print > Contact sheet. I want to include colour options for same file so my client can choose. I can’t rename then A,B,C or 1,2,3, or use custom text or any of the text in metadata because IT GIVES THEM ALL THE SAME NAME regardless of any variations per file! Edit one and it changes them all, even if only one was selected.

    C’mon Adobe, please, please please! 🙂

    Thanks a lot for all this information! This is great! So many new lens profiles, especially for Canon lenses 🙂

    I will spread the word about the updates on my blog:

  77. Matthis says:

    The release notes for LR 3.2 RC above mention that there is now a lens profile for the Canon S90 lens. This is inaccurate at best, as the profile is only for RAW files and NOT for JPEGs.
    I would really like to see a complete profile (i.e. for RAW and JPEG) in the final version. Or, at least, explicitly state that the profile is for RAW only, to avoid confusion and disappointment.

  78. Anthony Braime says:

    Just installed 3.2 because 3.0 started crashing on import (it had been ok). However, 3.2 still crashes.

  80. Markl says:

    When I sharpen an image full screen, go to the next image and then back it’s no longer visible. This is very confusing.
    You need to zoom in/out to see it again. This is still there in 3.2 and was’t so in the trial version.

    Is there a way to report a “perceived” bug? (LR3/LR3.2RC)

  82. Dilip says:

    Thanks – this looks like an impressive list! I had reported a few bugs including one of improperly listing a sample renamed file when selecting export file naming – the bug was acknowledged but can I hope that it will still be fixed in a future release? Thanks for the great and timely work, LR team!

    I stil have a difference of centration beetween what I get on the screen and what is printed. This bug had been corrected ont LR2.

    I assume LR3.2RC will work with a current valid license for LR3.
    Also I assume that LR3.2RC will expire sometime. When?
    Will one be able to upgrade to the next full version like LR3.2 ?
    In short: LR3.0 >> LR3.2RC >> LR3.2 are they valid with same license?

    I see you still haven’t fixed that bug of not deleting the contents off the memory card after importing. Silly to think Adobe plays big brother and won’t even give me the option to delete the contents of the memory card after importing. Why give me any ability to alter the image? I might mess something up. Should only allow me to apply auto white balance and auto tone. Same line of thinking not giving the option to erase the card after import.

    There is a bug with the filmstrip photos in the develop module in 3.2 RC, I just had a group of them turn almost black (the highlights show as real dark grey) when I click on one it shows up the same way in the develop window momentarily then goes to normal. Almost looks like I am holding the Alt key down while adjusting the exposure (but not quite the same appearance). Windows 7 x64

    >Library: Ratings and Labels were not propogated to a TIFF or PSD file created for an Edit in External Application workflow

    Thank you for fixing this! I had several phone conversations with the developers about this and am stoked that it’s been addressed. I’ll download the release candidate right now and give it a try with some sample data.

  89. Steven says:

    I really like the publish to Facebook feature, just wondering if it will support multiple Facebook albums in the future… That would be very handy!

  90. Jason says:

    When will you add the ability to to erase memory cards after import? This is one sorely missed feature. I understand eliminating that as a default option, but one should at least have the option! Choice is good 🙂

  91. Don says:

    I have the current version of Photomatix Pro loaded as an HDR plugin for Lightroom 3.0. When I try to export the series of images from Lightroom to Photmatix, I get the following message:


    Plugin did not start correctly

    Please check whether you invoked the plugin by choosing ‘File > Plug-in Extras’

    The process that I used in Lightroom was to hold down CTRL and select the 5 images while in Lightroom 3.0. The I right clicked, went to Export and then to Photomatix Pro which appears in the list. After doing this, I receive the above message.

    The way that I installed the software was to first have Lightroom 3.0 installed and updated. Then I installed the Photomatix Pro software and answered the question during installation that I wanted to use it as a plugin in LR. That was it.

    I just discovered something. In LR I went to File, Plugin Extras, Export to Photomatix Pro and this worked!!!! There is evidently a problem with the right click, export to a plugin. Don’t know how to pass this on to the developers so if someone does, please do so.
    Thanks, Don

    Has anyone noticed a problem when you hover over the filmstrip at the bottom of the screen, a tooltip constantly flickers.

  93. Ken Erickson says:

    LR 3.2 RC – Windows 7 x64 – Canon raw from 5d – I am getting black thumbnails in the strip at the bottom and when processing some of the images are coming out black also. There are bits of color showing where the highlights are almost blown out (looks like holding Alt while adjusting exposure kind of) and some of the exported photos are coming out this way. Going back to the photos in develop module they are showing up with no value on the exposure slider and if I adjust the slider it shows back up and everything is fine again.

  94. Reza Farivar says:

    Any plans to introduce GPU acceleration (CUDA, OpenCL) to lightroom like in photoshop? Zooming into the pictures takes about 10~12 seconds of 100% CPU utilization on both the cores of my core 2 duo laptop(macbook pro), while lightroom says loading. I can’t stick any more CPU cores in the laptop, but there is a nice GPU there waiting to be used.

    So, is there any plans in the pipe to use GPUs?

  96. I installed LR 3.2 but the new lens profiles don’t show up. Anyone having a similar problem? I confirmed within LR that I am using 3.2.

  97. Erick says:

    Thx for update. 🙂

  98. Want to be able to change camera setting will tethered in Lightroom.

  99. Ondrej Uhlir says:

    I would be really happy if we got more options in watermark editor.

    For example in CS3 are imho usefull options like: Outer/Inner Glow, Drop shadow.

  100. Stan Robins says:

    There remains a serious bug in LR3 that was not addressed in 3.2. During export to jpeg (and probably TIFF — haven’t tested that), GPS data in the EXIF is stripped and placed somewhere else in the file. This doesn’t occur with saves to jpeg from Photoshop (CS4), which leaves GPS data in the correct EXIF fields. The result is problems with mapping sites, notably Smugmug, which only reads standard EXIF GPS.

    The GPS data in the resulting jpegs might look “normal” to specialized geotagging apps like GeoSetter which know where to look, but an EXIF reader such as Irfanview will quickly confer that the standard EXIF GPS fields are empty.

    There is a workaround if you use the Friedl Geoencoding plugin. Always enable the Friedl GPS Injector, EVEN IF YOU PREVIOUSLY WROTE DATA FROM THE GEOENCODING PLUGIN BACK TO THE IMAGE FILE. The Injector fixes the problem in exported jpeg images.

  101. Neil Yellin says:

    Using 3.2 release and there seems to be a bug in the spot remover tool. It is hanging the program for anywhere from a few seconds to minutes after dragging the sample circle. Worst case I’ve had to force the program closed. Not certain but I think a larger circle makes it worse.

    I have to post not exactly a bug but an improvement…

    Do you remember old lightroom 2 fashioned import screen? Yeah.. it worked far better than the actual one in lightroom 3 concerning network volume import or such stuff…

    My workflow is based generally on duplication of card on a network nas/server, then i browse them using another fast raw viewer and then add in lightroom… okay when i do it with lightroom 3 it is terribly slow because it read all directory contents from the network drive instead do a fast listing before…

    I also noticed that listing content is not stored in cache so when you decide to import another photo again from that drive you must reload allll that stuff again…

    Consider it when you are working with network directories with 10.000 raw files and you get a really really slow workflow 🙁

    With lightroom 2 all import stuff were really faster than lightroom 3

    Please improve import stuff 😐

    Thank You 🙂

    When I am downloading to lightroom 3.2 ,the screen will go pitch black and will not return to program. Also ,will not allow me to export without burning a disk .

    I just installed LR3 and updated to 3.2. Problem is that it can’t read the CR2 files from my Canon EOS 30 D

  105. I use LR 3.2 in Windows 7 64bit. When using the adjustment brush a couple of item are missing from the roll down menu. Everything below “color” has gone. So no “dodge” or “soften skin” etc.

    I can export to flash drive but not DVD why?

  107. I’m getting an error that LR 3.2 can’t find the lens profile for a recent wedding however I know it has worked in the past on at least 5 other weddings. What happened and how to fix it?

    Please help!

    Does LR 3.2 support the Nikon D7000 in tethered mode? the D7000 RAW format is supported now, but not tether.
