    Look forward to see if this works!

    Still no tethering for the D7100??

    Just checking…. was there a LR 5.1 version?

    • Sharad Mangalick says:

      When possible, we try to keep the version numbers between Camera Raw and Lightroom in sync. As Camera Raw is currently on version 8.2, we decided to skip forward to Lightroom 5.2 in order to keep them aligned. Sorry for any confusion.

  4. Pierre-Julien Godier says:

    It seems that interactive histogram does not work properly (PC Win7 + Intuos 5 pencil or mouse): it shows the different zones but nothing can be changed…

    I am so tired of this.
    I spent my hundreds of dollars on Photoshop CS6 in late November 2012. Now I watch Adobe only bringing new features to CC. I am an amateur and close to retirement. I don’t want to be forced into a monthly subscription. Fixed income pensioners don’t want to be forced into a take-it-or-leave-it situation every month.
    At least the boxed sets gave a long term choice. If one didn’t upgrade one would still be left with a usable piece of software with occasional updates.
    CC may support Adobe’s strategic, long term objectives. But it doesn’t help my long term objectives at all.

  6. Donna Good says:

    thanks so much. loved each upgrade.

  7. RFrey says:

    Is a shame that we don’t get all the toys unless we go subscription. I just get Photoshop C6 then cloud comes out. You update the camera raw and only give the new toys on camera raw to your new photoshop. Am starting to get disgusted with how we are treated unless we fork over a ton of cash. Am giving serious thought to finding a different solution.

  8. It’s cool you didn’t forgot the Phase One.)

    I’ve owned CS6 for only a few months. Sad the way Adobe is treating it’s loyal customers as I’ve purchased every version of PS since CS2 but CS6 was my last version of PS. I’ll continue to purchase LR as long as it remains on a perpetual license, but I’m honestly looking for alternatives to all of my Adobe products. If CC was such a great option, Adobe would offer it along side a perpetual licensed version and let the best product offering win. I think we all know this is about a constant revenue stream. Good luck in the game, but I won’t be playing….

  10. Mathias says:

    It would be immensely helpful if the bug fixes were described as well. Can’t find them anywhere.

  11. Manuel says:

    I’ve just acquired the eos 70d to find out Photoshop CS6 can’t open the raw.
    I’m pissed
    I’ve downloaded Camera 8.2 RC and it’s not working. I’m even more pissed. Next time I’ll find a solution that is less expensive… Being honest is the best way of being robbed
