From Adobe:

Today (February 19) is Photoshop’s 30th birthday! For 10,950 days, artists, designers, photographers and many others have inspired the world with their imaginations using the practical magic of Photoshop.

Share the love with #PsILoveYou30 On this milestone day we celebrate the evolution that brought us here, from the first use of Photoshop (before Photoshop 1.0) to create visual effects for James Cameron’s movie, The Abyss … to the invention of the healing brush in Photoshop CS2 … to the wizardry of Content-Aware Fill … and all the amazing innovation in between. In 2016 we introduced Sensei AI and machine learning magic, resulting in many even more fantastic features including Select Subject, with of course much more to come. In 2019, Photoshop won an Academy Award, and we expanded it to new devices like the iPad.

We honor our long-standing collaboration of artists and engineers, where working together and with your feedback and inspiration we have built a tool that enables you to make the world a more beautiful place.

In celebration of this birthday, today we also release many great new features in both versions of Photoshop – on the desktop and on the iPad. Happy birthday, Photoshop! We will keep the magic rolling.

Photoshop on the desktop

Content-Aware Fill Workspace Improvements

Now you can make multiple selections and apply multiple fills without leaving the workspace. Use the new “apply” button to iterate your fills before committing. Click “OK” only when you are finished. In this release we’ve addressed a big customer request to sample all layers in the CAF workspace. These workflow enhancements are designed to reduce clicks, give you more control, and speed you to great results.

The most magical secrets of how Content-Aware Fill works are locked in a vault deep inside Adobe so I can’t tell you a lot about that. But I talked with the research scientists behind the feature to understand their approach to what we added today. A few releases ago we packaged all the CAF capabilities into a workspace. Since then we’ve worked closely with customers to further improve it, using customer-supplied images to ensure we solve your real-world problems. One of your top requests was to stay in the workspace to refine fills that need multiple CAF iterations – imagine removing something from behind many tree branches, or other tricky scenes with visual diversity. To do that, we now enable you to break the fill region into sub-parts to give you more iterative control to achieve a more realistic fill.

Lens Blur improvements

We’ve improved the output quality and performance of Lens Blur and put it on the GPU. This significantly improves the overall realism, including the sharpness and edges when using Lens Blur to synthetically blur the foreground, background or even the middle of an image.

The feature also now delivers more colorful bokeh via the specular highlights. This produces more realistic and pleasing results.

It’s a little boggling to me how we can add such realistic blur to a 2D image after capture. So I talked with one of our research scientists to get an idea of how the new and improved, GPU-driven Lens Blur works. The results are created by an algorithm the team built by studying the first principles of physics and how light interacts with objects in the real world. It is carefully tuned to simulate a 3D environment to create the most realistic results possible, while also consuming the least amount of compute power so you don’t burn up your machine. Lots of research and iteration occurred to make the feature. Several PhDs were involved. And now you can synthetically adjust the depth of field by dynamically manipulating the blur of a 2D image after capture in milliseconds.

Mac OS Dark UI support

Dark UI has been one of the more popular features of the Catalina Mac OS. Photoshop now supports the new dark mode. System dialogs like File>Open and File>Save now match the settings of your Mac OS.

If you have dark UI enabled, system dialogs will also be dark.

Performance improvements

You’ll discover some key performance improvements with a more buttery and seamless mousing experience. Clicking interactions like panning and zooming will feel smoother and more responsive. You’ll notice the biggest boosts on larger documents and when using the hand tool to zip around the canvas.

If you want to geek out, for stylus customers on Windows, you no longer need to use WinTab (you know who you are).

Photoshop on the iPad

Reminder: Photoshop on the iPad is included in all Creative Cloud plans that include Photoshop. If you are already a member, all you have to do to get started is download Photoshop on the iPad and sign in.

We promised you a continuous stream of new features in the iPad version of Photoshop and today we release a fresh batch.

This is a major release for Photoshop on the iPad. With the addition of the Object Selection tool, selections on the iPad takes a huge leap forward beyond anything available in any other apps on the device before today. Check out the video above by our own Russell Preston Brown that shows the power of this new feature. And, give it a try! Photoshop on the iPad is built using the same code base as Photoshop on the desktop. As you can see from the multiple releases we’ve delivered since we shipped the first version just three months ago, we are able to add new features with deep and rich capabilities and high quality output that matches that of the desktop very quickly. We are shipping these new capabilities as soon as the user experience has been adapted to the iPad and reimagined to take advantage of touch and mobility.

Object Selection tool

This feature was just released in Photoshop on the desktop at MAX 2019, three months ago. On the iPad we give you the same functions, with the same options and settings.

We’re hearing from customers that Photoshop on the iPad “helps them get closer to the pixels.” This feature is a great example of that, where the experience really shines in a touch environment when using the Apple Pencil. I encourage you to try it out.

Here’s a primer on how the new Object Selection tool relates to the Select Subject tool (which was released on the iPad in December). Both features are now in Photoshop on desktop and iPad. Both use Sensei AI and machine learning to automatically make a great selection. They each radically reduce the steps to results and each is tuned for common, but different use cases.

Select Subject finds and selects the main subject in your image with one click with no input or guidance from you. This is best used when you have one primary object you want to quickly isolate.

The Object Selection tool is designed to give you speed, but also more control over the selection process on more complex images. For example, it is the right tool if you have images with multiple objects, or when selecting a part of an object, or if you want this part but not that part, or need to isolate more than one object in an image. With the Object Selection tool, you draw a rectangular region or even a crude lasso around the area you want to select, and the tool automatically finds and selects the primary objects inside the defined region. This is demonstrated in the video at the top of the iPad section, where we have a selection that requires getting this part but not that part of the oranges.

Type settings

Type settings in this release brings many of the typographic controls you use in Photoshop on the desktop to the iPad. We added type layer, character and options properties. This includes tracking, leading, scaling, and formatting things like all/small caps, super/subscript. Kerning will ship in a future release.

How to give input on the iPad roadmap

We are so happy to get Photoshop on the iPad into your hands! Your experience, feedback and point of view have always been a critical part of our process, and we take that very seriously as we chart a path forward with the iPad. Please join our community forum to give feedback on what you would like to see in the future: feedback.photoshop.com. We look forward to your thoughts.

Cloud documents

In December we began rolling out major performance improvements to the upload and download experience of cloud documents for PSDs of 75mb and larger. On January 14, we expanded the improvements to apply to PSDs of 10MB or larger. Depending on the size of your file and your network performance, you can see up to 90% faster uploads and downloads with these updates.

Thank You

The new decade is off to a great start. Thank you to all our customers throughout all the years for your partnership and inspiration.

From Adobe:

As fellow photographers and creatives, we care about the impact all Lightroom products have on our customers. We’ve been listening to your feedback and requests and we’re excited to share what’s coming out today and a preview of what we are actively working on for 2020.

For Lightroom Classic, performance, quality, and stability have all been a primary focus for our team. Since October 2018, we’ve released significant performance updates like GPU (graphics processing unit) accelerated editing, faster and more stable tethering, Library improvements, and more. But we’re not done. The team is constantly testing and re-evaluating the speed and quality of new and existing features, and in 2020 we are working to deliver more GPU-enabled functionality to get you to your “done” point smoother and faster.

Image editing, organizing, and workflow efficiency are also important functions to Lightroom Classic that we want to continually improve for both new and long-time customers. Within the last year and a half, we’ve added key updates like the Texture slider, Flat Field Correction, HDR and Panorama Merge, collection color labels, PNG support, AI-empowered features such as Enhance Details and Panorama Fill Edge, and much more.

Adobe is dedicated to developing the best in class tools and experiences to help all photographers find and express their visions. That’s why we’re actively investing in more Develop tools (including AI/ML features), workflow optimization, as well as refining the interface and experience to empower photographers of all levels to achieve desired results faster and easier than ever before. As customers of our own product, we’re personally excited to share these upcoming updates with you in 2020 and the years to come.

Check out the new feature updates and customer requests for Lightroom Classic, as well as bug fixes and feature polishing for Lightroom for Mac, Windows, iOS, iPadOS, Android, and ChromeOS below. Support for new cameras and lenses is also included in the update.

Updates to Lightroom Classic and ACR

Improved raw default settings

Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw

Streamline your edit workflow with more control over the default develop settings of your raw images. Prior to this version, all raw images used Adobe Color as the default upon import and could only be changed if you knew about the hidden shortcut. Now, you can easily configure default develop settings within Preferences -> Presets to use either Camera Settings, Adobe Color, or a preset of your choice. Defaults can be applied universally (Master), or customized by camera model and even by serial number. If no specific default is specified, then the “Master” settings will be used.

Default by camera settings

Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw

Photographers often take advantage of the picture styles or profiles settings within their cameras. When importing into Lightroom Classic with the default set to Adobe Color, the image may look much different from the camera preview and would require time to adjust it back. With the new raw default settings, you can now use Camera Settings as the default to preserve the “as shot” look and reduce your edit time.

PSB file support

Lightroom Classic

Starting today, you can import, catalog, and edit Large Document Format (.psb) files within Lightroom Classic. Many landscape photographers may stitch multi-gigabyte panoramas within Photoshop and export as a PSB file to maintain the highest quality and resolution. Whether to edit or simply catalog your finished panoramas with the rest of your collections, you can now do so with this new release. Like all files within Classic, the maximum dimensions are 65,000 pixels on the long edge or 512 megapixels.

Performance developments

Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw

  • More GPU Accelerated Editing
    Expanding on our GPU support, we’ve added full GPU acceleration for Lens Correction and Transform adjustments.
  • eGPU Empowered Enhanced Details
    Enhance Details now leverages external GPUs on macOS 10.15 (Catalina) for faster processing.

Secondary display selection

Lightroom Classic

Work the way you want with the ability to choose which monitor to use as your secondary display. For many editors using three or more displays, opening a second window will now automatically appear in the designated monitor that may have better resolution, color calibration, etc. for your workflow needs.

Auto-Sync improvements

Lightroom Classic

Easily understand when Auto-Sync is enabled and which batch edits are applied. By adding messages and a more visible button, we hope to prevent unintentional batch edits that may set you back on your work. The notifications can be turned off in Preferences -> Interface.

Photoshop Elements 2020 support

Lightroom Classic

You can now import your Photoshop Elements 2020 catalog into Lightroom Classic.

FAQ link for sync

Lightroom Classic

We’ve created a Frequently Asked Questions document for syncing to the cloud from Lightroom Classic to help you understand how sync enables photographers to edit and share photos from the web or any mobile device. You can find the link under the sync status when you click on the nameplate.

Updates to Lightroom for Mac, Windows, Android, iOS, iPadOS, and ChromeOS

Export improvements

Lightroom for Windows and Mac

In addition to exporting in the JPEG or TIFF format, Lightroom on Windows and Mac now also allows you to export in the DNG format. (This feature was already available in Lightroom on Android and iOS.)

Improvements to shared albums

Lightroom for Windows and Mac

When contributing photos to a shared album which is owned by someone else, you can now choose to include or omit metadata. In addition, as the owner of a shared album you can now export photos which other people have contributed to the album.

Improvements to Photo Merge (HDR and Panorama)

Lightroom for Windows and Mac

You can now bypass the Photo Merge dialog when creating an HDR or Panorama and just merge the photos directly using your previous merge settings. To do this, use the following keyboard shortcuts:

HDR: Ctrl + Shift + H
Panorama: Ctrl + Shift + M

Import presets

Lightroom for Android

Previously, you could only import edit presets and profiles in Lightroom on Windows or Mac, and now in this release you can now import edit presets and profiles directly in Lightroom on Android. (This feature will be coming soon to Lightroom on iOS as well.)

Import improvements

Lightroom for Windows and Mac

When importing via drag-and-drop, you can now import to a specific album by dragging and dropping directly onto an album in the Albums list.

Improvements to learn and discover content

Lightroom for iOS and Android

In the Home view, the Discover content is now presented in a two column view for easier browsing. And the interactive tutorials in the Learn section now include a before/after step so that you can really see the effect of the edits in the tutorial.

Split screen

Lightroom for iPadOS

Lightroom on iPad now supports the split screen view.

From Pam Clark (Adobe Blog):

Photoshop, now available on your iPad; Adobe Fresco available on your iPad and Windows devices; the Creative Cloud Desktop app; Adobe Aero; the new cloud documents system; and a major update to Photoshop on your desktop.

I am thrilled to invite you to join us at the beginning of something new. The official debut of Photoshop on the iPad and the cloud documents system, a major new release of Photoshop, a new AR app called Adobe Aero; Adobe Fresco on Windows; and quite a lot more.

Today marks a significant evolution of Photoshop. This includes:

  • Photoshop on the desktop– We are shipping a major update to Photoshop today with many fabulous performance improvements, new Sensei AI and machine learning magic, new industry-leading editing capabilities, and an integrated cloud documents system to seamlessly save your PSDs across all your devices with Photoshop, with no importing or exporting required. This is the same world class Photoshop that powers your creative work, with lots of new added goodness. Download here.
  • Photoshop on the iPad– Version 1.0 launches today. This is just the beginning of our journey to expand Photoshop to devices, increasing your choices on how to work using Photoshop. We are launching the first version on the iPad, starting with Photoshop’s top workflows, compositing, masking and retouching, with more to come. Over time, we’ll add more capabilities and workflows as we learn more about how customers use Photoshop on a mobile device. With Photoshop on the iPad, you can open and edit your PSDs anytime, anywhere. You can see and edit your layered documents and create with many of your favorite Photoshop features using mobile and touch. It is reimagined with a new user experience completely redesigned for the iPad with touch and mobility top of mind. Photoshop on your iPad seamlessly connects to Photoshop on your desktop through the new integrated cloud documents system. More info here.
  • Cloud documents– Cloud documents undergoes a major expansion today to support the PSD format. This is a new system that first launched in Adobe XD last year. Today’s evolution enables you to seamlessly save your PSDs among your Photoshop apps and Adobe Fresco, and adds support for Adobe Aero, the new Creative Cloud desktop app and Assets.Adobe.com. For Photoshop, you can access and edit the same document across surfaces without unnecessary imports, conversions, quality loss or exports- no pixel destruction!Also shipping today and connected to Photoshop via cloud documents:
    • Adobe Fresco– the new painting and drawing app for the iPad that also uses PSDs and links to Photoshop and the cloud documents system. Today it also launches on Windows. (Download on Windows | iPad)
    • Adobe Aero– a new mobile iOS app for designers to create, share and view interactive, immersive experiences set in Augmented Reality. Make your layered PSDs interactive starting today! Whaaaaat? Try it out! Download here.
    • Creative Cloud Desktop– the new desktop application that is a portal to your Creative Cloud world of apps, services, collaboration and more.

For the product team, shipping our first version of Photoshop on the iPad and the cloud documents system is a huge milestone that comes after more than a year of intense work. It is a great burst of energy for us into the world. For you, the customer, this first 1.0 version is just the starting line. We plan to shape this new experience together with you, our customers.

Here’s more about the Photoshops, the cloud document system, and the associated apps that we are releasing today:

The journey begins with Photoshop on the iPad

When we started this project, it was hard for me to envision how we would reimagine the Photoshop desktop interface into a beautiful, performant experience optimized for pencil and touch on a smaller screen, while also retaining the power, depth and flexibility of Photoshop.

Photoshop on the iPad is built using the same code base as Photoshop on the desktop. This means you can open and edit the same PSD in Photoshop on your desktop or iPad without worrying about conversions, compressions, imports or exports. Photoshop on the iPad supports large files and many, many layers, just like Photoshop on your desktop, preserving your data across devices. The edits you make, whether making layer adjustments, masking, or spot healing, will produce the same results across devices because the app is powered by the same desktop engine.

One very important thing to note: This is the beginning. The first version of Photoshop on iPad is focused on compositing, basic retouching, and masking, common tasks and workflows that we know will be useful for most Photoshop users. Over time, we’ll add more capabilities and workflows as we learn more about how customers use Photoshop on a mobile device.

We plan to add new capabilities as quickly as possible on a regular cadence of releases, which will begin after MAX 2019. We’re releasing with a set of features we know all Photoshop users will need and plan to add capabilities as we see how customers use Ps on the iPad. While leveraging the same code base helps accelerate development, we’re also deeply committed to rethinking every experience for the pencil and touch screen to give you the best Photoshop experience possible no matter what environment you work in. We know we have more work to do and we encourage you to share what’s important to you after you’ve tried the product.

To orient you, the standard Photoshop toolbar is on the left, modernized for touch. Layers are on the right, modernized for a smaller screen to maximize canvas space. You can also see a detailed layers panel, just like desktop if that’s your preference.

All your work is automatically saved to the cloud using a new system we are also introducing today that we call cloud documents (details on that below). All your cloud documents are PSDs and are automatically saved across all your Photoshops and available to edit everywhere Photoshop is. So whether you flip over to check your email, head back to the home screen, or walk away from your iPad, you won’t lose your work.

We have some in-app tours and video tutorials to get you started and a new home button that takes you to where you can continue existing projects or start new ones. Currently you can export to PNG, JPEG, PSD, TIFF.

The help icon, which is the ? in the top right corner, takes you to help and community forums where we’d love for you to participate.

Today, Photoshop on the iPad is available to all Creative Cloud customers who have a subscription to Photoshop.

  • Existing Photoshop subscribers: Simply download Photoshop on your iPad from the iOS app store (also on your iPad), log in with your Adobe ID and take it for a whirl. It is included in your subscription.

Cloud documents

Cloud documents provide a streamlined method to work, share and manage creative documents across devices. This system is deeply integrated into Photoshop on the desktop and iPad, Adobe Fresco and Adobe Aero. Cloud documents enable you to work on your projects seamlessly across apps. Instead of exporting and importing files, simply connect to the internet, open your PSD from the app Home Screen and pick up where you left off. If you’ve been using Adobe XD, this workflow will be familiar as we use the same system for XD files. We are thrilled to integrate the cloud document capabilities into Photoshop and expand our support to PSDs today. (When a PSD is in the cloud, we’ve changed the extension to PSDC, “C” for cloud. It retains all the same characteristics and capabilities of an offline PSD.) Saving your creative work as cloud documents will enable exclusive benefits:

  • Work from anywhere and access your creative work across devices like Photoshop on your desktop, iPad and Adobe Fresco and Adobe Aero

Photoshop

Learn even more about what’s new in this version of Photoshop here.

On February 19, we will celebrate Photoshop’s 30th birthday. We now have many customers who were born after Photoshop and have never been without it. I’m so incredibly proud to be part of a product that continues to be the tool used by millions of creative people worldwide to bring their imaginations to life. Today that tool gets even better.

First, you will be thrilled with some of the improvements we’ve added using our Sensei technology of artificial intelligence and machine learning- particularly new capabilities in the Object Selection Tool and Content-Aware-Fill.


Many aspects of the user experience and engine have been re-architected for speed including places like the Home screen where you can see and open your PSDs; and the File > New dialog, which now launches almost instantaneously. Opening files on the Mac is also speedier now.

The home screen looks different because we’ve added things like access to cloud documents. We also have a “What’s new” tour so you can very easily see what we’ve added to each release as we are now constantly shipping new capabilities.

Properties Panel

We’ve cut out steps to navigate through multiple panels and dialogs by repackaging top tasks into a central location. These properties are shown contextually for the given content selected. This includes:

  • Document properties like canvas size, color mode, background fill, and toggles for rulers, grids and guides.
  • Pixel layer properties like transform options, alignment options, background removal and select subject shortcuts.
  • Type properties like selecting tracking, leading, aliasing options, OpenType features and more.

We’ve also added new quick action buttons to accelerate common tasks. For example you can now one-click to remove background or select subject while in the pixel layer properties panel or quickly convert text layers into a frame or shape.

Preset Panels: Swatches, Gradients, Patterns, Shapes and Styles

Preset workflows have received a complete overhaul. These improvements make up some of the all-time top requests across all customer types. You get:

  • New beautiful, modern default content like gradients and patterns (we know you’ll miss the old ones).
  • New, dedicated panels for gradients, patterns and shapes.
  • Manage your presets by organizing them into groups. Drag and move to rearrange and re-order.
  • New behaviors, like drag and drop gradients, patterns and swatches onto the canvas.
  • Quickly try different looks by clicking through your presets to see a live preview on canvas.

Don’t like the changes? The familiar legacy presets can still be accessed and loaded via the contextual panel menu item “Legacy presets.”

Object Selection Tool

This tool has been promoted to the top spot under the magic selections tool icon. We use Sensei AI machine learning to enable you to automatically select single, multiple or parts of objects in an image; speeding up complex selections.

Select subject Select Subject gets better edges, is faster on a Mac and we’ve reduced the size of the Sensei AI machine learning model on disk without reducing quality so we can also run it on Photoshop on iPad and achieve identical results on both platforms (this feature coming to iPad soon).

Content-Aware-Fill Enhancements

We’ve added three ways to identify where in your image you want it to look for source pixels as fill content.

  • Auto: intelligently select source pixels by analyzing pixels near the selection
  • Rectangular: Chooses pixels nearby
  • Custom: gives you full control. You identify exactly which pixels to fill from

Smart Object Convert to Layers

Convert a Smart Object back into its component layers to fine-tune your designs—and do it all in one place, without having to switch between document windows. Right-click any existing Smart Object and use the menu item ‘Convert to Layers’ to unpack the layers.

This is a specific response to requests from some of our power users and we worked very closely with them to get it right.

Lens Blur

Now you can take better advantage of the depth maps coming out of your camera. You can set a focal point to choose what to blur and keep in focus (foreground, background, etc). We’ve also made it speedier with GPU improvements.

Transform Warp Enhancements

We’ve added much more flexibility and control to transform warp with the ability to drag with bezier curves. We’ve added preset grids: 3×3, 4×4, 5×5 defaults. You can also create your own custom-sized grids (20×4 for example) and add and move your own new gridlines and anchor points.

There’s also a new keyboard shortcut (option/alt). This supports multiple undos to remove gridlines as you add them. And you can shift/drag to select multiple points for more control over creative warping.

32-Bit HDR Images

We’ve added adjustment layers for curves and brightness / contrast for 32-bit images.

Consistent Transform Behavior

You spoke. We listened. Proportionally transform multiple layers, regardless of the type, without using Shift. However, if you prefer the legacy behavior, simply click the link in the transform option bar to revert back to legacy behavior (all layers free transform by default). With a single click, you can set up Photoshop to your preferred transform behavior.

Smart Object and Layer Comp Tracking

Now save the variation of a Layer Comp within a Smart Object to save time from manually setting each variation.

New Shortcuts

  • Paint/erase with the same brush: Use the (~) key to toggle between painting and erasing with the same brush tip. This is a popular customer request also available on the iPad.
  • Faster layer navigation: Option/single click on a layer and zoom to that layer to help with faster navigation, especially with complex layered-documents.
  • Quickly rotate the brush tip by using the left and right arrow keys when a brush tool is active.

And So Much More

…Document tab improvements, native animated GIF support, better handling of scratch disks out of space…

From Adobe:

The U.S. Government’s recent Executive Order regarding Venezuela prohibits almost all transactions and services between U.S. companies and entities and individuals in Venezuela. In order to remain complaint, Adobe will be deactivating all accounts in Venezuela, with the exception of Behance, on October 29, 2019. Customers who purchased directly from Adobe will be refunded by the end of the month for any paid, but unused services. We are working with our partners on the same. We regret the difficulties this causes our customers. We will share more details about how our operations and customer activities might be impacted, as they become available.

How long will the Executive Order be in effect?

Executive Order 13884 was issued with no expiration date – the decision to rescind it rests solely with the U.S. Government. We will continue to monitor developments closely and will make every effort to restore services to Venezuela as soon as it is legally permissible to do so.

Where can I find more information on Executive Order 13884?

You can find further information here.

You’ve charged me, when will I get my refund?

If you purchased directly from Adobe, we will refund you by the end of the month for any paid, but unused services. We are working with our partners on the same.

From Adobe:

Improvements to Lightroom Classic & ACR

Updates are available today for Lightroom Classic and Adobe Camera Raw, our two desktop-centric photography applications. These updates focus on performance and improving your workflow.

GPU Accelerated Editing

Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw

Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw take advantage of the more powerful graphics cards (GPUs) while editing, providing a smoother and more responsive experience. GPU acceleration is more pronounced with larger resolution monitors (4k and above) as well as with more powerful GPUs.

PNG export support

Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw

The PNG file format is a popular uncompressed file format often used on the web. Lightroom and Camera Raw have supported importing and opening PNG-based files for some time, and now you can export your photos as PNGs.

Library Module Improvements

Lightroom Classic

As part of our on-going effort to improve speed and performance in Lightroom Classic, significant improvements were made to the Library module while browsing folders.

Color Labels for Collections

Lightroom Classic

Color labels have long been used in Lightroom Classic as a way to quickly visualize different groups of photos and recently we made it possible to add color labels to folders. In this update, we added the ability to also add color labels to Collections. Find what you’re looking for faster by adding color labels to collections, collection sets, and smart collections.

Batch Merge for HDR, Panoramas, and HDR Panoramas

Lightroom Classic

Batch processing is a great way to speed up your workflow by helping you gang up processor-intensive efforts and letting your computer do the heavy lifting without having to wait for each task to be done. The August release of Lightroom Classic makes it possible to batch process HDR and panorama merges. To batch merge, first make a stack of each HDR or pano that you want to merge (make sure that you’re selecting like stacks, all HDR or all pano merges, without mixing up the two types). Then, select each stack you want to merge and select the appropriate option from the Photo > Photo Merge menu.

New Features Throughout the Lightroom Ecosystem

The August releases for Lightroom, our cloud-centric photography ecosystem, include the ability to recover deleted photos, improvements to the in-app educational tools released in May, as well as improvements to search.

Recover Deleted Photos

Lightroom for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, ChromeOS, and lightroom.adobe.com

Discover posts were introduced in the May 2019 release and allow you to see the edit process applied to a photo. Now you can turn those edits into a preset that you can apply to any of your photos. Tap to open a Discover post and then tap on the three-dot menu at the top-right and select Download as Preset. You’ll be able to find that new preset named after the Discover post within your preset library.

Improved Search Options

Lightroom for iOS, Android, and ChromeOS

Three new auto-complete search tools were added to Lightroom for iOS, Android, and ChromeOS (these tools were already available in Lightroom for Windows and Mac) making it easier than ever to find the exact photo you’re looking for. You can now search for photos shot with a specific focal length, for raw, HDR, or pano photo types, and for images that include a depth map. To use, start typing “focal length:”, “type:”, or “depth map:” and the search auto-complete will let you pick from the available options in your catalog.

Batch Metadata

Lightroom for Android and ChromeOS

In addition to being able to copy and paste edits to a series of photos, you can now select a range of photos and adjust the metadata of all of the selected photos. You can change the title, caption, copyright, star rating, and flag status for all selected photos at once. This functionality is being worked on for iOS and will be made available as soon as possible.

Adobe Camera Raw 11.4

The August 2019 release of Adobe Camera Raw (version 11.4) rolls out new features - enhanced GPU support to accelerate editing of images and edge-aware editing in 360-degree panoramas. This release also adds support for new cameras and lenses and fixes several issues.

Latest cameras added in August 2019

  • Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II
  • Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III
  • Hasselblad X1D II 50C
  • Leica V-LUX 5
  • Panasonic LUMIX DC-GX880
  • Sony A7R IV (ILCE-7RM4)*
  • Sony RX100 VII (DSC-RX100M7)*

From Adobe:

New features and enhancements in the May 2019 (version 8.3) release of Lightroom Classic

Flat-Field Correction

You can now reduce shading, or lens cast, from your digital photos using the Flat-Field Correction feature. Shading can occur from a variety of different lenses and can result in both asymmetrical vignettes as well as color casts introduced by certain lens characteristics.

Flat-Field Correction is available in the Library module. To apply the correction, select all your photos in a natural interleaved order and choose Lightroom > Library > Flat-Field Correction.

For detailed information, see Flat-Field Correction.

New Texture slider

You can now smoothen or accentuate details such as skin, bark, and hair with the new Texture slider. You can adjust the Texture slider negatively to smooth skin and retain fine pore details to ensure natural-looking skin. You can increase the Texture amount to accentuate details such as bark or hair without affecting less detailed areas, like the out of focus areas in a photograph. Adjusting the Texture slider does not change the color or tonality in your photograph.

You can apply texture to your photos both as a global adjustment and to specific parts of the photo as a local adjustment. To apply texture, select a photo and switch to the Develop module.

Support for new cameras and lenses

Latest cameras added in May 2019

Other enhancements

Import photos from devices using the Files section

When you import photos from storage devices, such as SD card and CF card, the photos are now selected from the Import grid’s Files section by default. In previous versions, it used to be from the Device section.

Importing from the Files section is more performant. The Files section selects the DCIM folder of the storage device where the camera saves images. If you want to select any other folder, you can do so.

Improved performance of Auto setting

Experience performance improvements when you apply Auto settings. In the Develop module, the Auto option is located next to Tone in the Basic panel.

As reported by Petapixel, some customers are being shown a Photography Plan pricing of $19.99 per month instead of the up-until-now-normal $9.99 per month subscription fee. The Photography Plan (which includes Adobe Photoshop CC & Lightroom CC/Classic CC) has been the same price since it was introduced in 2015, representing an excellent value to customers (not many goods and services have remained the same price over that same period of time). I think it's safe to say that Adobe will raise its Photography Plan pricing at some point, but doubling its price in one fell swoop will leave most photographers very unhappy, especially those who were uncomfortable with subscription licensing in the first place.

Are Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC/Classic CC worth $19.99/mo? For working professionals and those serious about photography, absolutely. However, a majority of photography hobbyists will find the increased price significantly harder to swallow, leaving them searching for non-subscription based viable alternatives, such as the free and open-source GIMP.

It remains to be seen whether or not Adobe follows through with the price doubling strategy, but if you'd like to lock in the $9.99/mo rate for some time, you can purchase 12-month Photography Plan subscription licenses right now to extend the current plan pricing. In fact, I purchased a 12-month license last night after reading the news, and I'm considering purchasing another one.

From Adobe:

Today we’re releasing updates to the entire Adobe photography ecosystem, including Camera Raw, Lightroom Classic CC, and Lightroom CC for Mac, Windows, Android, ChromeOS, and iOS.

In this release, we’re introducing an all-new Sensei-powered feature, Enhance Details. Harnessing the power of machine learning and computational photography, Enhance Details can now be found in Adobe Camera Raw, Lightroom Classic CC, and Lightroom CC for Mac and Windows, and takes a brand new approach to demosaicing raw photos. Demosaicing is an integral process to raw processing and works at the pixel level, converting the information captured by a camera into something that looks like the photos we all expect to see.

The new Enhance Details algorithm enables you to increase the resolution of both Bayer and X-Trans based photos by up to 30%. Enhance Details works on any raw file apart from files converted to a linear raw file, HDR or Panorama merged files (though you can apply Enhance Details to the ingredient files first and then merge), smart proxies, lossy compressed DNGs, or DNGs saved with 1.1 compatibility. Applying Enhance Details to your photos can greatly improve fine detail rendering, improve the reproduction of fine colors, and resolve issues that some customers reported with their Fujifilm X-Trans based cameras.

If you would like to know more about Enhance Details, a white paper can be found here and if you’d like to try Enhance Details on a Fujifilm X-Trans based file, you can download one here.

All of the apps have also been updated to support new cameras and lenses.

Newly Supported Cameras

  • Nikon COOLPIX A1000
  • Olympus OM-D E-M1X
  • Sony A6400 (ILCE-6400)*

* Preliminary support

Newly Supported Lenses

  • Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR Nikon
  • Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR + 1.4x
  • Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR + 1.7x
  • Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR + 2.0x

Lightroom CC for Mac and Windows

In addition to Enhance Details, we’ve also added HDR, Pano, and HDR Pano merge tools, the Target Adjustment Tool, and histogram clipping indicators.

HDR, Pano, and HDR Pano merge

High dynamic range (HDR) and panoramas are two types of photos that combine multiple frames to create visually stunning results that would otherwise be impossible to create from a single photo. Lightroom CC can merge either raw or non-raw photos together into HDR and panorama photos, and when merging raw files, the resulting DNG maintains all of the benefits of a raw file, with the ability to change white balance and recover highlights, giving you the best possible results.

Capturing a panorama can be done either handheld or with a tripod. When shooting handheld, Lightroom’s powerful alignment technology will align each photo and correct for any distortion. Using a tripod can yield even higher quality results and provides more flexibility for difficult shots, such as super-wide panoramas.

When capturing a series of photos for HDR, including both HDR and HDR Panos, it’s often recommended to use your camera’s auto exposure bracketing mode, which results in a series of photos being captured in a row, varying the exposure for each shot. Consult your camera’s manual for how to enable its auto exposure bracketing mode. When capturing an HDR Pano, capture each series of exposures before moving the camera. This is where having a tripod and a remote trigger can be quite handy.

Once you’ve imported the photos into Lightroom, select the photos that you want to merge, and then navigate to Photos > Photo Merge > and select the appropriate merge option.

Target Adjustment Tool

The Target Adjustment Tool (TAT) gives you precise control over color and tonality and is available in both the Tone Curve, Color Mixer, and B&W Mixer tools.

To access the TAT, open either the Tone Curve, Color Mixer, or B&W Mixer and click on the target icon. A new control will show up at the bottom of the screen that provides control over what the TAT will affect while interacting with your photo. Clicking and dragging on your photo will then directly adjust the Tone Curve, Color Mixer, or B&W Mixer (depending on which is currently active) for the color or tonality under the mouse cursor, enabling you to quickly modify different parts of your image directly and effectively. For example, clicking and dragging on the sky in a photo with the TAT focusing on the Color Mixer tool in Saturation mode enables you to increase or decrease the saturation of the colors in the sky.

Histogram clipping indicators

The term clipping refers to areas that have become either too bright or too dark to have any details in them, such as an area of pure white (highlights) or pure black (shadows). An image may either be captured with clipped highlights or shadows due to the scene having too high of a dynamic range such as a very bright and sunny day or clipped areas may be introduced while editing the photo. You can use the histogram clipping indicators to ink the areas of your photo with clipped highlights in red or clipped shadows in blue.

To enable the histogram clipping indicators, first ensure that the histogram is visible by navigating to View > Edit Panels > Show Histogram, which will show the histogram at the top of your edit panels. You can then selectively turn on the clipping indicators individually by clicking on the either the left (shadows clipping) or right (highlight clipping) triangles.

Lightroom CC for iOS

This release makes it possible to create ad-hoc photo shares and continues to focus primarily on behind-the-scenes updates and preparation for exciting features that will be coming soon. For a full list of improvements and bug fixes found in this release, please visit the What's New page.

Ad-hoc photo shares

You can now create an online share of photos with an arbitrary assortment of photos. Instead of creating an album and sharing that album, you can now select any number of photos that you want to share, tap the 3-dot menu at the top-right of the screen, and then select Share to Web. Like any other web share, you can control whether people that you share that link with can download or see the photos’ metadata.

Lightroom CC for Android and ChromeOS

This release primarily focuses on foundational improvements and bug fixes, making way for new features coming soon. For a full list of improvements and bug fixes found in this release, please visit the What's New page.

Lightroom Classic updates

In this release, we further improved tether performance and stability with Nikon cameras. Nikon cameras now have the same speed and stability as Canon cameras after the October 2018 release. Tethered image transfer at the time of capture should now be a faster experience overall in Lightroom Classic. You also now have the convenience of controlling basic camera features, like ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and white balance within the tether bar itself. Additional details on this enhancement can be found here. For a full list of the improvements and bug fixes, please visit the What's New page.

From Adobe:

This release of Lightroom Classic CC rolls out new features and enhancements such as customization of Develop Panel, Add to Collection option in auto-import settings, Grid Snap option in book module, other enhancements, support for new cameras and lenses, and bug fixes.

Customize the order of Develop panels

With this release, you can now drag the Develop module panels in the order you would like to see them in.

To customize the Develop panel menu, do the following:

  1. Right-click (Win) / Control-click (Mac) on the header of any panel.
  2. Select Customize Develop Panel from the context menu that opens.
  3. In the Customize Develop Panel dialog box that opens, drag the panel names in the desired order.
  4. Click Save. To restore the default order, click Default Order before Save.
  5. Relaunch Lightroom Classic to see the Develop panels in the new order in the Confirm dialog that opens.
For detailed information, see Customize the order of Develop panels.

Add photos from a watched folder to a Collection with Auto Import

In the Auto Import settings, you can now use the Add To Collection option to directly pull photos from a watched folder into a specified Collection.

The Auto Import feature monitors a watched folder for photos and automatically imports them into the Collection you've set as the destination. After you set up a watched folder and specify a destination Collection in the auto-import settings, you can simply drag photos into the watched folder. Lightroom Classic CC automatically imports those photos in the specified Collection, allowing you to bypass the import window.

To add photos from a watched folder to a Collection, do the following:

  1. Go to File > Auto Import > Auto Import Settings.
  2. In the Auto Import Settings dialog box, set up a watched folder and select the Enable Auto Import option.
  3. In the Destination area of the dialog box, select the Add to Collection check box. Lightroom Classic now displays a list of all your Collections.
  4. Select any Collection as your destination for auto-import.
  5. Optionally, you can also click Create Collection to create a new collection and select it as the destination for import.
  6. Click OK.
For detailed information on photo import on tethering, see Import photos automatically.

Align photos in a Book layout with the Grid Snap guides

You can now easily align photos in a Book layout using the Grid Snap option in the Guides section. In Grid Snap, choose either Cells to align the cells of two photos with respect to each other, or Grid to align photos with the grid guide lines.

On moving the photo, it would snap into place based on the selected setting. By default, the Grid Snap option is set to Cells.

For more helpful information, see Create photo books.

Duplicate preset handling

With this release of Lightroom Classic CC, if you attempt to create a duplicate preset with the same name under the same group, a Duplicate Preset Name dialog box opens with options to:

  • Replace - Select this option to keep only the latest preset with the same name in the group
  • Duplicate - Select this option to keep two presets with the same name listed in the same group
  • Rename - Select this option to append a numeric extension to the name by default or rename it yourself

For detailed information about working with Develop presets, see Work with Develop presets.

Show partially compatible presets

On opening a photo in the Loupe view in the Develop module, some presets may not appear in the Presets panel due to incompatibility with the selected photo, such as camera profiles that are not applicable to the current photo or presets that only apply to raw files. The non-compatible presets are shown as faded and in Italics style in the Presets panel in Develop.

To see all presets even if they are not compatible with the current photo, do the following:

  1. Open a photo in Loupe view and click Edit.
  2. Select Preferences from the drop-down menu.
  3. Select Presets under the Preferences panel.
  4. In the Visibility section, select/deselect Show Partially Compatible Develop Presets to show/hide partially compatible develop presets.
For detailed information about working with Develop presets, see Work with Develop presets.

Photo merge enhancements

  • Photo merge: Requirements for merge operations that could have led to merging failures in earlier versions have now been relaxed. Now you can merge images with differing dimensions, focal lengths, and orientation.
  • Photo merge preview caching: Lightroom Classic now caches the previews generated for Photo Merge operations. This improves performance and provides a better user experience.
  • Single-step HDR-Pano merge: Now you can perform single-step panorama HDR merge using smart previews.

For more helpful information on merge operations, see Create Panoramas and HDR Panoramas.

Performance enhancements

  • Improved sync reliability and stability.
  • Improved performance while doing batch operations such as import, preview generation, DNG conversion, and export.
  • Improved grid scrolling performance on Hi-DPI displays.
  • Improved performance when switching between Develop and Library Loupe.

Other enhancements

  • Cancel on exit: With this release, you would see a confirmation dialog on exit so that you can choose to cancel exiting from Lightroom Classic CC. If you select Don’t show again checkbox from the confirmation dialog, you need to reset warning dialogs (Preferences > General > Reset All Warning dialogs) to see the confirmation dialog on exit again.
  • Color Labels for folders: Support has been added for color labels for offline folders. For more helpful information, see Create and manage folders.
  • Support for Photoshop Elements 2019 catalogs: Support has been added for importing Photoshop Elements 2019 catalogs in Lightroom Classic CC. For more helpful information, see Import photos from Photoshop Elements.

Some of you may be wondering, "What's New in Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC 2019?" If so, here's a quick overview of the changes.

Lightroom Classic CC

Depth range masking

Beginning this release, a new range mask option is added to the local adjustment tools. Make selections based on a range of depth values in supported HEIC photos that contain embedded depth map data.

Using the Depth Range Mask, after making an initial selection mask on your photo with Adjustment Brushes or Radial Filter/Graduated Filters, you can refine the mask area based on the depth range of the selection:

  1. From the Brush settings area in the Adjustment panel, choose the Range Mask type as Depth from the drop-down list. By default, Range Mask is set as Off.
  2. To sample a depth range within the mask area, do any of the following:
    • Adjust the Range slider to define the endpoints of the selected depth range.
    • Select Depth Range Selector from the Range Mask panel. Click+drag an area on the photo you want to adjust.

  3. Select the Show Depth Mask check box to view the depth of the image in black and white representation and use the Smoothness slider to control the falloff at either ends of the selected depth range.
After refining the mask area, you can now apply selective adjustments from the Effect pop-up menu to create precise photographic edits.

For more Help information, see Depth range mask.

Single-step HDR Panorama merge

Create HDR Panos faster now that you can merge multiple bracketed exposures into multiple HDR photos and then stitch them into a panorama — all in one step.

Simply select your exposure-bracketed pano source photos in the grid and select Photo > Photo Merge > HDR Panorama. In the HDR Panorama Merge Preview dialog box, you can adjust other settings using Boundary Warp slider, Auto Crop and Create Stack checkboxes.

For detailed information, see Create panoramas and HDR panoramas.

Faster tethering for Canon camera

Experience greater speed and stability when tethering supported Canon camera models to Lightroom Classic CC.

  1. Connect a supported Canon camera to your computer and choose File > Tethered Capture (Canon) > Start Tethered Capture.
  2. In the Tethered Capture Settings dialog box, specify how you want to import the photos using: Session, Naming, Destination, Information, Disable Auto Advance, Save A Copy To Camera.
  3. Click OK to start the photo-capture session.
  4. Use the floating tethered capture bar to adjust the camera controls and develop settings.
For more details, see Import photos from a tethered camera.

Additionally, tether support for the following Canon camera models has been provided in this release:

  • Canon EOS 2000D (Rebel T7)
  • Canon EOS M50

For a full list of cameras that can be tethered to Lightroom Classic, see Tethered camera support.

Process version improvements

With Process Version 5 update, Lightroom Classic's raw image processing has been updated to include improvements to image quality for high ISO raw files that reduces purple color cast in your low-light shots and you see less noise when you move the Dehaze slider to the left of zero (negative dehaze).

To check the process version in Lightroom Classic, switch to the Develop module. In the Calibration panel, select the Process drop-down list to see a list of available versions.

For related information, see Process versions.

HEVC file support (macOS)

Beginning with this release, Lightroom Classic CC supports Apple's HEVC video format (High Efficiency Video Coding, also known as H.265) on macOS High Sierra v10.13 or later.

For related information, see HEIC and HEVC media files support in Lightroom and Camera Raw.

Support for new cameras and lenses

For a full list of supported cameras and lens profiles, see these resources:



Lightroom CC

People View

(Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and ChromeOS)

Quickly find the people you care about with Adobe Sensei-powered People View. Lightroom CC automatically tags people in photos and provides you with an easy way to see all the photos the person appears in.

Improved Search

(Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and ChromeOS)

Get better search results with automatic search suggestions provided to you as you type in the search box. Lightroom CC provides suggestions for metadata like cameras, lenses, aperture, ISO, locations, keywords, and more.

Share Tab

(Mac, Windows, iOS)

The new Share tab gives you an easy way to browse and access shared albums and images that you made through lightroom.adobe.com.

Connectors

(Mac and Windows only)

As part of the new Share tab, you can also share albums directly to your portfolio hosted on Adobe Portfolio from within Lightroom CC using the new Connector feature.

We’re building out the Connector service to have a full menu of third-party services (like photo labs, photo book printers, and others). Please get in touch if you’re interested in working with us.

Apple Photos Migrator

(Mac only) Use the new Apple Photos Migrator to easily migrate your Apple Photos library into Lightroom CC on your desktop.

Additional Sharing Options

(iOS and Android only)

When sharing your albums to Lightroom Web you can now choose to only share images that are flagged or that have a certain star rating or higher, while controlling the display theme, directly from Lightroom CC.

Display View

(lightroom.adobe.com only)

The new Display view within lightroom.adobe.com lets you see a preview of the page, exactly how your viewers will see it. While in the Display view, you can control the layout and background color while inserting breaks between images and text to help tell the story that accompanies your photos. When you’re done setting up the layout, you can then share the album using the controls under Sharing.



Photoshop CC 2019 v.20.0.0

Content-Aware Fill reimagined

Choose which pixels to use in your fills using a new, dedicated workspace, and rotate, scale, and mirror your source pixels thanks to Adobe Sensei technology. You can even create fills on separate layers to preserve your original images.

Frame tool for easy masking

Turn shapes or text into frames that you can use as placeholders or fill with images. Easily replace an image by dropping another one into the frame — it automatically scales to fit.

Multiple Undo

Use CMD-Z to undo multiple steps, just like in other Creative Cloud apps.

Usability improvements

Now you can hide your reference point, double-click the canvas to edit text, and efficiently crop, transform, and place and enter text faster with auto-commit. Plus, Photoshop transforms pixel and type layers proportionally by default and makes it harder to move panels by accident.

Live blend mode previews

No more guessing which blend mode to use. Just scroll over the different options to see how they look on your image.

Symmetry mode

Paint your brush strokes in a perfectly symmetrical pattern — even on curves. Symmetry mode lets you define an axis or axes and then choose from preset types, including circular, radial, spiral, and mandala.

Color wheel

Visualize the color spectrum to choose complementary colors more easily.

Home screen

Get started quickly with the Photoshop home screen. Access it at any time to find out about new features, connect to learning content, and jump right to your open documents.

Improved in-app learning

Use your own assets while working through tutorials to get the looks you want in less time.

Top customer requests

You asked, we delivered. Now you can distribute the spacing between objects, type simple math operations into fields that require numeric values, see the end of long layer names, and find Japanese fonts with Match Font and Font Similarity.

UI size preference

Get more control when scaling the Photoshop UI, and adjust it independent of your other apps to get the UI size just right.

Better “Export As” experience

The “Export As” menu loads faster and offers a streamlined UI to make things easier. And you can preview multiple artboards at one time.

And so much more

Also includes: A Flip Document view that lets you flip your canvas horizontally, a Lorem Ipsum text mode for quickly placing sample text, and customizable keyboard shortcuts for the Select and Mask workspace.
