Lightroom CC 2015.8 now available

Today Lightroom CC(2015.8) / 6.8, Adobe Camera Raw 9.8 and updates to Lightroom for mobile are now available.  Please click here to read the Camera Raw release notes and click here to read all the Lightroom for mobile news.

Introducing Reference View

reference_view

Reference View is a new view mode available in the Develop Module that allows you to compare 2 different images in order to make them visually consistent.  This is helpful when making a group of images from a single event look similar or setting the white balance appropriately in mixed lighting conditions.

To get started,

  1. Go to the Develop Module
  2. Click on Reference View.  Its on the Toolbar, and you may need to show the Toolbar if hidden
  3. Drag and Drop your Reference Photo onto the left pane.  You can change your Reference Photo by either dragging a different image onto the left pane or using the “Set as Reference Photo” context menu in the Library Module.
  4. Edit the active photo. Use the Reference Photo to guide your editing decisions.

Click here for more information on Reference View.

Performance Improvements

Lightroom CC (2015.8) / 6.8 includes ‘under-the-hood’ changes designed to improve the responsiveness of your Lightroom experience.  You should notice improvements in image editing responsiveness when background tasks (such as Preview Generation) are running, moving files between folders, running catalog backups.

Fit/Fill Improvements

You can now zoom to fit and zoom to fill.  Particularly when using ultra high-resolution (i.e. 4K and 5K) monitors, prior versions of Lightroom would not completely fill the Loupe window.

Additional Features

  • Ability to filter or create a Smart Collection for images that have Snapshots associated with them.
  • Export a Collection Set as a new catalog.

Announcing Lightroom for iOS 2.6

l1050372

Today we’re announcing updates for Lightroom Mobile, Lightroom CC, and Adobe Camera Raw. Read on below for the updates in Lightroom for iOS 2.6 and Lightroom for Android 2.2.2 or click the following links to open new windows for the announcements of Lightroom 6.8 and Adobe Camera Raw 9.8.

Lightroom for iPhones includes a new edit experience, a new info section, a new capture interface with a brand new professional mode, support for all of the latest cameras and lenses provided in today’s Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom releases, as well as bug fixes and improvements. Lightroom for iPads adds in the new capture interface, camera and lens support, and bug fixes, and Lightroom for Android provides support for new cameras and lenses as well as bug fixes. To download Lightroom for iOS and Android, tap here.

The teams for both Lightroom for iPads as well as Lightroom for Android are also working on adding in the new edit and info experiences and we hope to release those updates soon.

Check out the new series of videos our very own Julieanne Kost has made covering Lightroom Mobile from end-to-end, including these new features, by clicking here.

In Lightroom for iPhones, you’ll find the following updates:

New Edit Interface

Lightroom mobile 2.6 represents a significant evolution of editing on mobile devices. We wanted to improve the ability to quickly find and access tools and ensure the fastest way to enhance and edit images on a phone. Our design team reached out to photographers of all skill levels to help us figure out how people edit with Lightroom mobile, what’s missing, and how we could make it even better. This update represents our first release taking advantage of this research.

The first step we took was to organize similar tools into categories to make it faster to use tools that are often used together.

img_2781

 

We then built an interface that was easy to use with a single hand, something we find ourselves doing pretty often while on our phones. This meant ensuring that you could see the entire image while editing it, but also to ensure that you can easily get to often used tools like showing the before and after without having to use your second hand (goodbye three-finger before and after, hello single finger tap and hold).

 

img_2783

 

New Info Section

Finally, we built ways of expanding the interface so that additional groups of functionality could be added in, like the often requested ability to add in titles, captions, and copyright from mobile devices. This new interface extensibility means we can continue to deliver on the features that photographers have been asking for, turning their mobile devices into more and more capable image processing devices.

 

img_2784

 

New Capture Interface and Professional Mode

Version 2.6 also adds in a brand new capture interface (the same that Android users received earlier this year) that provides access to a new professional mode that provides control over all aspects of your camera’s exposure and focus. This new mode makes it easy to dial in exactly the exposure you need to capture the shot you want.

These updates are all available now, tap here to download.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about the new improvements in the comments below.

Raw Technology Preview for Lightroom for Android and Major Lightroom on the Web Improvements

Two major updates for Lightroom are now available: Lightroom for Android 2.2 and new updates for Lightroom on the web.

Lightroom for Android 2.2 — Raw Technology Preview

Lightroom has always been about helping you get the most out of your images, and with Lightroom for Android 2.2, you can now import raw files directly into your Android device. The Raw Technology Preview makes it possible for you to connect your camera to your Android device and import photos directly from your camera. With this Technology Preview now available for Android (released for iOS in July of this year), you can capture, edit, and share raw photos, in full resolution, and have access to them wherever you are in the world.

Lightroom for Android now supports all of the same raw files that Lightroom for desktop as well as Adobe Camera Raw support, with the full list available here.

To transfer photos to your mobile device, you’ll need a USB On-The-Go adapter, sometimes just referred to an OTG cable. An OTG cable enables you to connect your mobile device directly to your camera and transfer your images with the PTP transfer mode. We recommend getting an OTG cable that matches the ports on both your camera as well as your Android device. For example, if your camera uses a Micro USB port and your Android device has a USB-C port, you’d want a Micro USB to USB-C OTG cable. These cables, and nearly every other imaginable combination of ports and connectors can easily be found online and are quite inexpensive.

After installing the Lightroom for Android 2.2, plug your camera into your Android device, and change to the PTP transfer mode in the Android Notification Center. Then, tap on the notification that indicates “Connected to USB PTP Camera. Tap to view files.”

You’ll be presented with an importer to select from the photos found on your camera to import into Lightroom on your Android device. Select the photos you want to import, the collection you want to import the photos into, and tap transfer. Lightroom will transfer the photos and notify you once all of the photos have been imported.

ptp-import-dialog

You get all of the benefits of raw, such as the ability to change the white balance, being able to recover blown out highlights, access to the full range of color information, as well as editing an uncompressed file, all using the exact same technology that powers Lightroom on your desktop. An added benefit is that the raw file that you’ve imported into Lightroom for Android will be synced with Lightroom on your other devices, such as Lightroom for desktop or Lightroom on the web, along with any of the edits, star ratings, or flags that you’ve added.

Lightroom for Android 2.2 is available now from the Google Play Store.

Lightroom on the Web—November Updates

Significant improvements to Shares

New Shares created within Lightroom on the web have been made even more powerful. You can now add a header graphic, add sections within your Shares, and add text describing the sections. You can use this additional functionality to engage your audiences and tell richer photographic stories with Lightroom on the web.

Select Photos

First, select the photos to share.

Add text and sections

Next, add sections by clicking between two photos and then add titles and information about each section.

03-journal

People viewing your share will see a well laid out story, that you’ve been able to craft with your images and text.

Adobe Portfolio Enhancements 

Adobe Portfolio helps you showcase your creativity with your own professional online portfolio. We’ve made it possible for you to quickly and easily send your images from Lightroom on the web to Portfolio so that you can create and maintain a special place on the web to show off your photos.

add-to-portfolio

You can now create a new Project in Portfolio directly from within Lightroom on the web and copy your Lightroom photos into that new Project, saving time and making it even easier to maintain your online presence.

Download Original

A highly requested feature is the ability to download your originals from within Lightroom on the web – and now you can. Any image for which the original is available in the cloud (such as images uploaded from Lightroom iOS or Android, or from Lightroom on the web) will now have an option available to download the original. The ability to download the original is only available for the owner of the account and will not be visible to viewers of the share.

save-original

As of today, all of these features are now available at lightroom.adobe.com.

We would love to hear from you about these new features, as well as any other requests for new functionality.

Please drop us a line in the comments below with your thoughts!

 

Lightroom CC 2015.7 now available

Lightroom CC (2015.7) and Lightroom 6.7 are now available.  The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support and lens profile support, and to address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.

Please note that this version of Lightroom contains compatibility fixes for macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and also requires macOS 10.10 and greater.

We recommend you update to Lightroom CC (2015.7) and Lightroom 6.7 prior to updating to macOS 10.12 (Sierra).

Publish to Adobe Stock Contributor Site

You can now submit images directly from Lightroom CC to the brand new Adobe Stock Contributor Site using the included Adobe Stock Publish Service.  By contributing to Adobe Stock, you have the opportunity to showcase your work to millions of customers directly inside Creative Cloud applications.

Updates to “All Synced Photos”

We’ve made it easier to access your Lightroom CC images on the go with Lightroom for mobile and Lightroom for web.

You can now drag images directly to the “All Synced Photographs” collection in the Catalog panel.  By doing so, the image syncs with the Creative Cloud, and ensures that you’ll be able to edit, organize, or share the photo on the go with Lightroom across your devices.

Smart Previews for Faster Performance

You’ve always been able to use Smart Previews in the Develop Module as a way to edit photos without having access to the original images on disk.  Astute customers reported faster performance in the Develop Module when using Smart Previews and keeping their original images disconnected from their computer.  Now, you can set a Preference in the Performance tab so that Lightroom will always use Smart Previews in the Develop Module, if they are available, even when the original files are also available.

To do so,

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences.
  2. In the Preferences dialog, select the Performance tab.
  3. In the Develop section, select Use Smart Previews Instead Of Originals For Image Editing.
  4. Click OK and then restart Lightroom.

Shoot in DNG raw in Lightroom for iOS 2.5

Sunrise over Black Rock City

Sunrise captured with an iPhone 6s Plus in DNG within Lightroom’s built-in camera

Today we are excited to announce an important update to Lightroom Mobile for iPhone and iPad that adds the ability to capture and edit raw photos using Adobe’s Digital Negative (DNG) file format. Having a true end-to-end raw workflow, powered by DNG and Lightroom, on your iPhone and iPad makes it possible to create absolutely stunning photos that, until a few years ago, could only have been done with a traditional camera.

This release catches the iOS version up to the Android version of Lightroom Mobile that was released in February of this year.

New Adobe DNG Support

Lightroom 2.5’s in-app camera adds in the ability to capture directly in DNG format.

lightroom-2-5-dng-capture-screenshot

The DNG file format is an open source raw file format developed by Adobe that offers far more quality and control than either the JPEG or TIFF file formats. With the DNG format, you get:

  • The highest possible image quality because DNG files contain all the data from the camera sensor without the compression artifacts that you find in JPEG formatted photos.

    JPEG compression is often good enough for photos that don't need to be edited, but once for those photos that need to be enhanced, the compression can get in the way. This image has obvious JPEG compression artifacts on the right side of the image.

    JPEG compression is often good enough for photos that don’t need to be edited, but for those photos that need to be enhanced, the compression can get in the way. This image has obvious JPEG compression artifacts on the right side of the image.

  • Freedom to experiment with the ability to change the white balance even after capturing, something that is not possible with a JPEG or TIFF formatted photo.

    White Balance Variations

    By shooting in Adobe DNG, you can experiment with different white balances even after capturing the photo with no loss of quality. Three different white balance options were compared in the image above to find the one that most closely matched the feeling of the original scene.

  • More latitude when capturing difficult scenes thanks to a greatly expanded dynamic range within your image, which provides the ability to recover highlight information that would have otherwise been discarded if shooting in JPEG or TIFF formats.

    JPEG vs DNG Highlight Recovery

    In order to capture shadow detail, this image was metered from the shadows, resulting in blown out highlights. The DNG version on the right enabled the highlights to be recaptured without issue.

  • The ability to push your images further thanks to having access to all of the color and tonal information found in your camera’s sensor, which is thrown away when shooting in the JPEG file format.

To learn more about the history of DNG click here to read an interview with Thomas Knoll who invented the file format.

To capture in DNG, you’ll need a device running iOS 10 that has a 12MP sensor such as the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, and iPad Pro 9.7. When available, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will also support capturing in DNG format.

 

New Wide Gamut P3 Color Space Support

In addition to supporting the DNG format, Lightroom for iOS 2.5 also adds support for the new wide gamut P3 color space found in the iPad Pro 9.7 as well the soon-to-be-released iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. This wide gamut color space provides 25% more color than the sRGB color space, ensuring that any edits you make in Lightroom accurately reflect any the colors in your photos.

Availability

Speaking of the iPhone 7, just like with all new cameras, we’re working to profile the new sensors and lenses found in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and will have an update available as soon as possible.

With this update, Adobe is building on its long heritage of excellence in desktop raw photo editing by enabling the same capabilities for everyone using mobile devices. With the DNG file format on iOS and Android and Lightroom for Mobile Devices, Adobe is pushing the boundaries of mobile photography.

Visit the app store now to download Lightroom 2.5 or update your app to the latest version.

Lightroom for Mobile July Releases

Two big updates for Lightroom for mobile are now available for download: Lightroom for iOS 2.4 and Lightroom for Android 2.1.

Dreams of Meteora || Greece

Photograph by Elia Locardi of the valley in Meteora, Greece. Shot in raw on a Fuji XT-2 and edited on location with an iPad Pro with Lightroom for iOS.

Lightroom for iOS 2.4

IMG_4385In version 2.4, two major improvements have been added: a raw technology preview and the addition of local adjustment tools. In addition to these major improvements, we’ve also added the ability to use keyboard shortcuts with physical keyboards connected to iPads, the ability to add your copyright to all imported photos, functionality to turn on lens profiles (if your camera and lens combination are supported), as well as the usual bug fixes and improvements.

Raw  Technology Preview

Import DialogWe’re sure it’s happened to you before: you’re out taking photos (in raw of course) and you capture a real stunner that you can’t wait to share with the world. Until now, you had to either transfer a JPEG version of the file over or you had to wait until you got back to your desktop or laptop. With the raw technology preview, you’ll be able to import raw photos immediately to either your iPhone or iPad, edit them, and then share them, anywhere you’ve got a connection. Our goal with Lightroom for mobile is to make it an indispensable part of your photography workflow, providing the tools that you’re familiar with and the quality you expect in a product that can be with you, no matter when inspiration strikes. With this technology preview, we want to push the boundaries of how photographers around the world work with their mobile devices.

Raw Lr ImportYou get all of the benefits of raw, such as the ability to change the white balance, being able to recover blown out highlights, access to the full range of color information, as well as editing an uncompressed file, all using the exact same technology that powers Lightroom on your desktop. An added benefit is that the raw file that you’ve imported into Lightroom for iOS will be synced with Lightroom on your other devices, such as Lightroom for desktop or Lightroom on the web, along with any of the edits, star ratings, or flags that you added.

Lightroom for mobile supports all of the same raw files that Lightroom for desktop as well as Adobe Camera Raw support, with the full list available here.

To transfer photos to your mobile device, you need to use either the camera connection kit or the lightning to SD or USB kits from Apple to transfer your raw files over to your device, which will bring up the Import tab within the iOS Photos app. Importing the files will add them into your camera roll, where you can then access and load in any raw file directly into Lightroom mobile. It’s important to keep in mind that raw files are significantly larger (3-5 times larger) than JPEGs, meaning the raw files will take longer to import, upload, and take up more space on your device. Even as such, we found that the added control and quality that the raw files afforded were so useful that it outweighed the negatives.

Just as when working with raw files that were synced from Lightroom for desktop or Lightroom on the web, you’ll be able to perform raw-specific enhancements, such as changing the white balance with greater control and recovering clipped highlights, but unlike when working with raw files synced from Lightroom for desktop, you’ll have access to the full resolution file AND you can do it anywhere in the world, even from your iPhone!

We’ve run Lightroom for mobile through its paces on a number of different files, including the 50MP Canon 5DS running on an iPhone 6, proving that you really can edit nearly any photo anywhere. After playing with the app for a few months, we’ve found that it’s a really great way to take a few of your favorite images from the day (or even that you just captured), review to make sure you captured what you saw, edit, and then share them, all right away, and with all of your edits carried through the rest of the Lightroom ecosystem.

We had the pleasure of working with a number of photographers while creating the raw technology preview, take a look at how travel photographer Elia Locardi was able to put the technology to use while shooting on location in Greece.

You can read more about the images that were created for this release through an article about Elia on Adobe Create as well as on Elia’s own blog.

Linear and Radial Selections

In addition to the raw technology preview, we’ve also added in the ability to perform local adjustments with linear and radial selections, the two most requested features after raw support.

Selective

With the Linear and Radial Selection tools, you can either add or modify existing selections made to your photos and use the tools to draw attention to certain parts of your images.

Lightroom for iOS Availability

Lightroom mobile 2.4 is available immediately for iPhone and iPad from the iOS App Store for free. Both of these improvements are available only for members with a creative cloud subscription or or if you start a free Creative Cloud trial.

Lightroom for Android 2.1

Android CaptureWhile the iOS team was working hard on the raw technology preview, the Android team doubled-down on the unique end-to-end DNG capture experience first announced in Lightroom for Android 2.0 and created a brand new capture experience. Our goal is to create the best mobile photography experience available, and with the amazing quality possible on Android devices, especially thanks to DNG raw capture, we wanted to provide all of the controls and functionality needed.

Now, the built-in camera has a new Pro mode that lets you control the shutter speed, ISO, white balance, and focus all manually, in a brand new interface.

Lr Camera WidgetYou can access the camera directly using the new Lightroom Camera widget. This new widget will launch the Lightroom camera directly, making it faster for you to get in and start taking pictures.

In addition to the new built-in camera, we’ve also improved the app’s ability to export full-resolution files. If the files are available somewhere within the Lightroom ecosystem, Lightroom for Android will now download the full resolution version and enable you to export them.

You can download Lightroom for Android 2.1 here now for free.

Lightroom CC 2015.6 now available

Lightroom CC 2015.6 and Lightroom 6.6 are now available.  The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.  This release also includes a new Guided Upright feature for Creative Cloud members.

Thank you for all your feedback and passion for Lightroom.

Introducing Guided Upright 

We included Upright as a tool that helped Lightroom customers easily straighten images, fix horizons, and reduce or eliminate the keystone effect in buildings.  Upright works well when there are prominent vertical and horizontal lines.  Not all images contain prominent lines, limiting the effectiveness of Upright.

Starting with Lightroom CC 2015.6, Guided Upright allows you to provide ‘hints’ that enable Upright to work its magic.  You draw the vertical and horizontal lines directly on the image and Upright will automatically transform the image.  Here’s how to get started.

  1. Select an image and click on the Develop Module.
  2. Enable Lens Profile Corrections.  Upright works better with Lens Profile Corrections.
  3. Notice that there is a new “Transform” Panel.   Transform includes both Upright and the manual perspective correction sliders together in a convenient place.
  4. Within Transform, click on the “Guided” button.
  5. Draw 2-4 guides on the image.  Upright will transform the image once you draw at least 2 guides.
  6. Fine tune the results (if needed) with the manual transform slides, including the new X and Y transform sliders.  They can be used for  repositioning/moving the image within the canvas after applying strong perspective corrections to choose which part of the (warped, non-rectangular) image to show within the rectangular canvas.

New Camera Support in Lightroom CC 2015.6 / 6.6

  • Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
  • Leica M-D (Typ 262)
  • Nikon COOLPIX B700

Additional Updates in Lightroom CC 2015.6 / 6.6

  • Merge to Panorama and HDR now works with Smart Previews.  Previously, Lightroom required the use of original images for the Merge to Panorama or HDR features.
  • The Preferences -> Lightroom mobile section now contains a “Pending Sync Activity” section.  This area is useful for helping identify any potential issues related to image sync across the Lightroom family of applications (desktop, mobile and web).

Tethered Camera Support for the following cameras:

  • Canon EOS-1D X Mark II
  • Canon EOS 80D
  • Canon EOS 1300D / Canon Rebel T6

Lightroom Mobile for iOS 2.3 now available

IMG_2278
Lightroom for iOS 2.3 is now available, bringing with it a few important improvements and bug fixes. Most notably, we’ve taken steps to reduce the amount of steps that it takes to edit a photo from your camera roll. We heard from a number of users that editing and sharing a single photo was really important, so we made it possible to start editing immediately with a single photo. Importing multiple photos was also made easier by being able to swipe across a series of photos directly. By making it possible to start editing directly, you no longer have to find a photo, import it, find it again, and then start editing, so common workflows should be improved considerably.

We’re of course constantly working on ways to improve the many different workflows in Lightroom for iOS, and have a number of improvements in the pipeline. Let us know in the comments here what you think about this update as we all as what improvements you’d like to see in future builds of Lightroom for iOS.

Lightroom mobile 2.3 is available immediately for iPhones and iPads from the App Store.

We’d love to know what you think, and don’t forget to rate it if you like it 🙂
