From the Adobe Lightroom Journal:
 
We’re excited to announce an update to Lightroom for iOS just in time for the holidays! This new version adds a bunch of new features, including:
 
  • iPad Pro support and support for iOS 9’s multitasking capabilities
  • Point Curve mode for the Tone Curve and the Split Tone adjustments tool
  • Support for 3D touch and a new widget to launch the Adobe built-in camera from the iOS Notification Center
  • New shoot-through presets in the Adobe built-in camera, and more.
The launch of the iPad Pro has gotten us all pretty excited at Adobe. The ability to take such a powerful and yet compact device on the road with us, and the new opportunities it offers, has gotten us thinking about what new possibilities we can add into Lightroom for mobile. In this release, we optimized the app to work on an iPad Pro and to also support the multitasking functionality new in iOS 9. On iPads and iPad Pros, Lightroom for iOS 2.1 enables both the Slide Over functionality so that you can quickly interact with other apps without having to switch apps as well as Split View so that you can run two apps at once, such as reading a tutorial while working within Lightroom.
 
We are constantly working to make Lightroom for mobile more and more powerful, and this update adds in both the Point Curve mode for the Tone Curve tool, as well as the Split Toning adjustment tool. With the Point Curve mode, you can have full control over the curve, as well as direct access to each of the color channels. This level of control previously has only been available in our desktop apps, so we’re pretty excited that now you can really tweak your images anywhere. The Split Toning tool makes it possible to add a different tint or tone to both the highlights and shadows of your photo. This effect is great both creating artistic and stylistic enhancements with color photos, something that we’ve seen become a lot more popular recently, or to recreate an effect that was more traditionally used in black and white photography.
 
Since we’re often using our mobile devices on the go, we’re always looking for ways to make it easier and faster to work with Lightroom for iOS. The 3D touch functionality introduced with the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus opened up a new realm of possibilities for speeding up interaction. With Lightroom for iOS 2.1, you can use 3D touch on the home screen to open the camera directly or in the collection view to Peek and Pop an image, to quickly check which image you’d like to edit before moving into the Loupe view. Lightroom for iOS 2.1 also adds a Notification Center widget that lets you quickly open the camera found within Lightroom for mobile.In Lightroom for mobile 2.0 we added in a brand-new camera experience, built from the ground up to provide powerful new capture experiences.
 
In version 2.1, we’ve added in a new exciting feature that lets you preview and capture images in real-time with a preset applied. These presets take full advantage of the full processing abilities of Lightroom and apply their enhancements non-destructively. This means you can see what your photo will look like with the preset applied before you capture it, capture the photo with the preset already applied, and then adjust or even remove the effect from the photo, all without losing any quality along the way. And of course, the original image and the edits are synchronized with your other mobile devices, Lightroom on the web, and Lightroom on your Mac or PC. These shoot-through presets are one of the first ways we’ve made the Adobe in-app camera within Lightroom for mobile a truly unique and powerful experience, and we’re just getting started.
 
In addition to all of these major new features, we’ve added a bunch of little enhancements and improvements throughout the app. We’re continuing to work hard to come up with new, fun features that make mobile photography even more enjoyable, and look forward to sharing those new features with you in the new year.
 
For now though, download Lightroom for iOS 2.1 for your iPhone or your iPad and have a happy holiday and wonderful new year!

From the Lightroom Journal:
 
In October, we released Lightroom 2.0 for iOS which made it possible to use Lightroom on iPhones and iPads without a paid subscription, and the response has been phenomenal. Today we’re excited to announce Lightroom for Android version 1.4, which adds the same free offering for Android users. The ability to use Lightroom for mobile without a paid subscription means that anyone can take advantage of the organizational, editing, and sharing abilities that Lightroom for mobile offers. Signing up for a free trial or logging in with a Creative Cloud subscription adds the ability to synchronize files and edits with Lightroom on a desktop or laptop, as well as with Lightroom Web.
 
We’re really excited to continue our focus on Android and pleased that Lightroom for mobile was recently listed by Google as one of the top apps of 2015. We’ve seen Android grow as a platform over the years, with billions of users around the world. As a photography platform, Android is making huge leaps and strides. New devices are being launched all the time with better and better cameras, and with the launch of Lollipop and the ability to shoot raw DNG files, Android provides one of the most powerful photography platforms available. Lightroom for Android supports raw DNG workflows making it possible to enhance images and take full advantage of all of the quality and details found in images captured on Android devices. If you’d like to read more about the exciting abilities that DNG can offer, check out this awesome blog post by our friend, Martin Evening.
 
We’re committed to making Lightroom Mobile for Android better and better and can’t wait to share some of the improvements we’re working on. Keep checking back with us, but for now, download Lightroom Mobile for Android 1.4 today!

Photographer Martin Evening has written a thorough and informative article on the open standard DNG file format.
 
From the Photoshop Blog:
Is it wise to convert your raw files to the Adobe DNG format? If you are using Lightroom or Photoshop with Camera Raw, you have the option to convert your master files to DNG. In this article I want to focus on the benefits of converting, the reasons why converting to DNG may not always be ideal or necessary, as well as tackle some of the misinformation about DNG.

Lightroom 6.2 Import Update
 
I’d like to thank our customers for their patience while the team reviewed several options for restoring import workflows and addressing quality in Lightroom. We can now confirm that, in our next dot release, we will restore the previous import experience. We are still working on details and timing. In the meantime, if you need to restore previous import functionality prior to the next update, please refer to this document on how to roll back to Lightroom 6.1.1.
 
We will continue to investigate ways to improve the ease of use of our photography products and will do so via an open dialog, with both existing and new customers.
 
Regards,
Tom Hogarty

From the Adobe Lightroom Journal:
 
I’d like to personally apologize for the quality of the Lightroom 6.2 release we shipped on Monday. The team cares passionately about our product and our customers and we failed on multiple fronts with this release. In our efforts to simplify the import experience we introduced instability that resulted in a significant crashing bug. The scope of that bug was unclear and we made the incorrect decision to ship with the bug while we continued to search for a reproducible case(Reproducible cases are essential for allowing an engineer to solve a problem). The bug has been fixed and today’s update addresses the stability of Lightroom 6.
 
The simplification of the import experience was also handled poorly. Our customers, educators and research team have been clear on this topic: The import experience in Lightroom is daunting. It’s a step that every customer must successfully take in order to use the product and overwhelming customers with every option in a single screen was not a tenable path forward. We made decisions on sensible defaults and placed many of the controls behind a settings panel. At the same time we removed some of our very low usage features to further reduce complexity and improve quality. These changes were not communicated properly or openly before launch. Lightroom was created in 2006 via a 14 month public beta in a dialog with the photography community. In making these changes without a broader dialog I’ve failed the original core values of the product and the team.
 
The team will continue to work hard to earn your trust back in subsequent releases and I look forward to reigniting the type of dialog we started in 2006.
 
Sincerely,
 
Tom Hogarty and the Lightroom Management Team

From the Adobe Lightroom Journal:
 
The Lightroom team wanted to let the community know that we’re investigating some critical performance and crasher bugs, and will be issuing an update shortly to address them.
 
If you are experiencing crashing or slowdowns, please try the following:
 
  1. Go to Lightroom > Preferences.
  2. Click on the General tab
  3. Uncheck “Show ‘Add Photos’ Screen”
  4. Restart Lightroom
I think it’s important to provide some context to why we made changes to Import. Over the years we’ve done extensive studies of customers interested in Lightroom. The studies have been comprised of people passionate about photography and who use their cameras as a creative outlet. In short, their motivations share the same motivations as people who already love Lightroom.
 
We visited them in their homes, and asked them to install, launch and use Lightroom. Since this was their first interaction with Lightroom, we were interested in observing specifically where they encountered obstacles, and therefore where we needed to focus our attention.
 
Customers were universally unable to decipher the Import dialog without getting frustrated. Some people pushed forward, bolstered by spending time searching the web for help. They might have been successful in importing files, but they didn’t feel successful. Others gave up, deciding that Lightroom might not be the right product for them.
 
The previous Import experience literally made people push back from their computers in frustration. Keeping the existing Import experience isn’t an option, and we needed to evolve the Import experience.
 
We’ve heard great feedback on the changes, and we’ve always evolved the Lightroom product with feedback from photographers and look forward to continue to evolve the experience going forward with your feedback in mind.
 
Please keep the feedback coming!

Lightroom CC 2015
 
Today’s release covers the full Lightroom ecosystem across desktop, web, and mobile. Now your photography goes where you go even more seamlessly. Organize, edit, and share your photos from anywhere—on your computer, on the web, on your iPad, and on your iPhone or Android devices.
 
New in Lightroom CC Desktop:
 
  • Increase or decrease the amount of atmospheric haze in parts of your photos with the Graduated Filter, Radial Filter, and Adjustment Brush.
  • Use the redesigned Import tool to get your photos into Lightroom Desktop faster than ever before by finding your photos on your camera, memory card, or hard drive, or from within Aperture or Photoshop Elements.
  • Various additional bug fixes and improvements.
New in Lightroom for mobile for iOS, version 2.0:
 
  • Get from shoot to finish faster with the new Adobe in-app camera on your iPad or iPhone.
  • Control haze with the newly added Dehaze filter.
  • Adjust the hue, saturation, and brightness of colors throughout your image directly with the new Target Adjustment Tool in the Color / B&W adjustment tool.
  • Send a collection of photos over the newly updated Adobe Premiere Clip 2.0 and create amazing video stories, synced to the beat of your music.
  • Get professional quality retouching with Photoshop Fix (more information about Fix below) which is now seamlessly integrated with Lightroom for mobile with CreativeSync, accessed through the new Edit In option.
  • Lightroom for mobile for iOS can now be used on your phone or tablet without a paid membership, coming soon to Android.
New in Lightroom for mobile for Android, version 1.3 includes:
 
  • Refine individual colors in your photos with the new Color / B&W adjustment tool.
  • Precisely control the tone of your photo with the new Tone Curve adjustment tool.
  • Bring out the best in your photos with adjustable vignettes.
  • Crop the perfect photo with a redesigned experience that enables you to quickly adjust, align, and auto-straighten.
  • TIFF files are now supported.
New in Lightroom for web:
 
  • Now make edits right in your browser using the most advanced online editing experience available.
Photoshop CC
 
Create anything you can imagine, anywhere you are.
 
Photoshop CC is a family of desktop and mobile apps, connected to each other and to your creative assets via CreativeSync, so you can tap into the power, precision, and performance of Photoshop wherever you are to create anything you can imagine—including images, 2D and 3D designs, videos, and more.
 
For the Photoshop family, we’re focusing on two major initiatives:
 
First, deliver tools where our customers can do real work on mobile devices with Photoshop Fix, Mix and Sketch, all connected to each other and our desktop products via CreativeSync for a vibrant ecosystem of new capabilities and workflows so you can push your creativity further than ever before in new locations, on new devices.
 
Second, we are investing in delivering new capabilities and efficiencies for designers in desktop Photoshop. Over the past two years we have made a major investment in new design tools across type and fonts, Artboards, Linked Assets, Creative Cloud Libraries, Adobe Stock, Asset Export, 3D (and MUCH more…) and with this new version we are making Design Space (preview) available to more customers and in more languages. This is a new space inside Photoshop, custom created to address the workflows of today’s web, UI and app designers.
 
Here’s today’s news:
 
Photoshop Fix 1.0 – NEW!
 

We are thrilled today to introduce and make immediately available Photoshop Fix, a new mobile app built to make non-destructive image retouching easier than ever before. With Fix, we started with the state-of-the-art retouching technology from Photoshop and Lightroom, added some new secret sauce and packaged it all up in a mobile workflow specifically designed to make retouching fast and easy while on the go, while still producing Photoshop-quality results.
 
Fix includes Liquify to reshape any area of an image; Healing Brush to remove image imperfections such as scratches and blemishes; Smooth to easily smooth or sharpen areas of a landscape or parts of skin; unmatched face detection that recognizes when a specific section of the face is selected and enables detailed refinements; and much more.
 
Fix even delivers amazing performance on images from high-end DSLRs (depending on your hardware capabilities). Try it out. I promise you won’t have seen this kind of performance on a mobile device before.
 
Fix is deeply connected to Lightroom and Photoshop through CreativeSync. You can edit your Lightroom images directly in Photoshop Fix and save them back to your Lightroom catalog without ever leaving Fix. Use Photoshop to open a retouched image you created in Fix and get the full, layered PSD file showing all the adjustments and masks from your Fix edits.
 
It is available free on iPhone and iPad.
 
Photoshop Mix 2.0
 

Today we have released Photoshop Mix 2.0. This is a major update to Mix with many new features and improvements throughout the app, including a completely new architecture that leverages Apple’s Metal framework.
 
Photoshop Mix is a compositing app built using Photoshop technology that delivers a deep, focused, non-destructive editing experience on a mobile device. It enables you to do real work while away from your desktop. Through CreativeSync, Mix also connects to many of Adobe’s other mobile apps like Fix for retouching workflows and Lightroom for image enhancements, so you can easily produce multifaceted projects in a completely mobile environment. Plus, if you want to take your projects even further, you can quickly move your layered and masked compositions to Photoshop CC, and benefit from all its goodness. And now, there’s even non-destructive smart filter support in Photoshop CC for Mix looks.
 
Just some of what’s new in Mix today:
 
  • More layers
  • Nine blend modes (the most popular from Photoshop) that allow textures, multiple exposure effects and more, for more serious and complex work away from the desktop
  • Nearly twice as many image adjustments
  • Support for Layer Masks to create double exposure, stencil and other creative effects
  • CreativeSync-enabled direct connection with Lightroom and the exciting, new Photoshop Fix
Mix is free and available on iPhone and iPad and Android (2.0 on Android coming soon).
 
Get Mix 2.0 for iOS here. Get Mix 1.2 for Android here.
 
Adobe Camera Raw 9.2
 
Adobe Camera Raw 9.2 releases today and remains in sync with Lightroom with the ability to easily remove or add atmospheric haze in specific areas of your photos using the Local Adjustment Brush, Radial Filter, and Graduated Filter plus, a new way to navigate through your images when zoomed in. And as always you will get support for more cameras and lenses.
 
For more information about ACR, visit the Lightroom Journal here.
 
Here’s what will be available in the coming weeks:
 
Photoshop CC 2015
 
Today, we are announcing a major update to the desktop version of Photoshop. One new web-based component of Photoshop will ship today, which I will describe below. The primary Photoshop desktop application will ship in the coming weeks when we release all our other desktop apps like InDesign CC, Illustrator CC, Premier Pro CC, etc. and I will write a detailed blog post about Photoshop on that date. To whet your appetite, here is just some of we are adding:
 
  • Even more enhancements for designers – continuing to build out this major area of focus for you. – We are adding a completely streamlined and tuned Design Space mode targeted for web and UI designers; new Artboard capabilities; the ability to directly import SVG files that you can rescale in your designs; and Creative Cloud Libraries improvements that speed up your asset access and management workflows.
  • The ability to easily work with 3D figures and incorporate them into your images and designs directly in Photoshop. – Import, pose, and animate characters created in the new Adobe Fuse CC (Preview), and then adjust camera angles, lighting, and position to get precisely the look you want in Photoshop. Just imagine all the possibilities and the flexibility you gain when you can pose, re-pose, change the lighting of people in images in ways that are very challenging in 2D.
The update notice on the Adobe Blog covers some products not included above including Photoshop Sketch 3.0 and a 3D animation service.
 
Adobe's Creative Cloud Photography Plan (USD$9.99 per month) includes Lightroom CC across desktop, web and mobile, Photoshop CC and Photoshop Mix (for iPhone and iPad).

From the Adobe Blog:
 
September 24, 2015 – If you’re like most people, there’s a lot going on in your life. In addition to work and other day-to-day activities, you’re busy with back-to-school events, weekend outings, sports, hobbies, holidays and gatherings with friends and family. And since you always have your smartphone or tablet with you, you’re probably taking more photos and videos than ever before.
 
It’s great that you can easily capture these moments, but since you’re living the moments, too, you don’t want to have to worry about things like lighting, composition and trying to get the perfect shot or video. That’s why the Elements team is excited to announce the release of Photoshop Elements 14 & Premiere Elements 14. We built this version with the goal of helping you stay in the moment, enjoy your memories and make the most of your precious time. Elements 14 software uses content intelligence, automated features and a friendly interface to help you effortlessly turn your quick snapshots and video clips into amazing photos and movies.
 
We’ve created some great new features and we’ve enhanced existing ones to make them better and easier to use. Here’s a quick look:
 
What’s new in the Elements Organizer
 
Find and organize with ease: We’ve revamped the Elements Organizer so you can more quickly find the photos and videos you need. The enhanced People view does an even better job recognizing the faces in your photos, and it stacks them by person during import so it’s easy to find photos of specific people later.
 
The enhanced Places view makes it easier to assign locations to your photos and videos, and view them right on a map based on where you took them. And in the Events view, your media is clustered by date range making it easy to apply an Events tag to that cluster.
 
What’s new in Photoshop Elements 14
 

Bye-bye, camera shake: We call Shake Reduction “your selfies’ best friend,” but it’s great for any photo shot with a handheld camera. Just click to remove the camera shake blurs that come from unsteady hands.
 
Never a hazy day: Ever notice that, when you take a photo of an outdoor landscape, moisture in the air can cause the background to look hazy? Now you can use Haze Remover to make the background as crisp as what’s up front. De-haze in one click, or use sliders for more control.
 
Speed Guided Edit for action shots: Whether your photo captures a ball in flight, a bike zipping by, or some other cool moment, now you can get step-by-step help amping up the action by adding cool motion blurs.
 
Resize in seconds with a new Guided Edit: Want your photo to fit a certain picture frame or spot on a website? With step-by-step help, resizing has never been easier.
 
Select hair in a snap: It used to be a real chore to select hair, pet fur and other fine details in photos. Now you can just paint loosely over the area you want to select, and Elements detects the edges and does the rest with the Fine Detail Selection option.
 
Get custom looks to fit any photo: Want to give a photo some extra style, but not sure which effect will look best? Elements analyzes the subject, color and lighting and Smart Looks gives you five effects that fit perfectly.
 
Quick edits made easier: Quick Edit mode is now even friendlier and easier to use, letting you rotate photos and make quick fixes faster than before.
 
What’s new in Premiere Elements 14
 

Tell dazzling stories with motion titles: When you’ve made a great movie, why not start it off right? Grab attention with new, professional-looking motion titles. Premiere Elements makes it easy to animate text and graphics using built-in presets.
 
Color Pop Guided Edit for instant wow: Color Pop for photos was a big hit last year, so we added a Guided Edit for Premiere Elements this year. Create some visual drama by popping one or more colors in a scene and pushing everything else to black-and-white. You can fine-tune for hue, saturation and luminance, too. Elements walks you through it step by step.
 
Play with time using Guided Edits: Get step-by-step help creating slow-motion effects that add emphasis, suspense or drama. Or, get guidance with adding fast-motion effects that speed up your story and create energy, excitement or fun.
 
Go beyond HD with 4K: If you’ve got a 4K Ultra HD video camera and/or TV, you know what all the fuss is about. Now you can use Premiere Elements to edit and view 4K movies for the ultimate cinematic experience.*
 
Sound your best: Audio sets your movie’s mood, and now it’s easier than ever to fine-tune your sound. We’ve brought all of the audio features together in one place so they’re easy to find, and a new toggle screen lets you focus on just audio or video parts of a clip as needed.
 
Easily export optimized movies in multiple formats: Now when you’re ready to export your movie, Premiere Elements recommends settings for you. That way you get a movie that looks great on whatever device or screen you choose, from iPads, iPods and other smartphones to big-screen 4K and HD TVs.
 
B&H has Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 and Premiere Elements 14 available for preorder.
