From the Adobe Blog:
 
By Sharif Karmally
Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Creative Cloud for Education

 
05-03-2018 – I'm inspired by the educators I meet around the world who use technology to improve the way students learn and build creative problem-solving skills. Our research showed that this is important to nearly every educator and policymaker because professions which require creative problem-solving are less likely to be impacted by automation, and more likely to pay high salaries.
 
The study also confirmed that many of the barriers to teaching these skills that I’ve seen in classrooms are universal — some of the biggest of which are limited budgets, access to technology, and time to learn new apps. As teachers shift their classrooms to incorporate creative projects that build these skills, we at Adobe are also shifting our offerings to give them an affordable, easy, and quick way to succeed.
 
In January, we announced we were providing access to Spark for Education, a set of storytelling apps with premium features and additional capabilities for K-12 and higher education institutions, free of charge. And now, we’re pleased to announce that beginning May 15, 2018, the full suite of Adobe Creative Cloud apps will be available to K-12 schools via their authorized Adobe reseller for $4.99 per user license, per year, with a minimum purchase quantity of 500 licenses for a single school, or 2,500 licenses for a school district.
 
Like Spark for Education, Creative Cloud for K-12 provides a method for schools to deploy licenses to students of any age in a way that is consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and other data privacy laws. And, it can be set-up with a single sign-on so that students and teachers can use their existing school ID to access Creative Cloud.
 
What I’m most excited about is that it allows students to access apps like Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, XD, and more, wherever they are — and on any device. I recall visiting a high school class where the students were creating posters for a social cause they care about using Photoshop. They were so excited to have a visitor from Adobe, they all applauded. But then a hush fell over the room, and one of them asked their teacher, “How will I finish my project if we can’t work on it during this class?” Talking to the teacher more, I learned that because access to Creative Cloud was limited to the computer lab, they had to dedicate much of their class to students working on their project. They could not spend as much time as they wanted teaching students the principles of design and visual communication. With the new user licensing we are announcing today, students can continue working on projects at home, and on any device, simply by logging in and opening the apps and services they need.
 
In addition to making Creative Cloud affordable, Adobe is working to provide additional professional development resources to educators, in partnership with Edcamp, an organization dedicated to building and supporting communities of empowered educators. Together, we will be bringing educators together to share projects and courses focused on implementing creative problem-solving in the classroom. And beginning next year, Adobe will begin conducting hands-on professional development workshops, both in schools around the country and online, to teach educators new project-based use cases for Adobe Spark and Creative Cloud. This is all in addition to the Adobe Education Exchange, a place where educators can access free courses, workshops, and teaching materials.
 
We are on an exciting journey, collaborating with educators to empower the next generation to be lifelong creators. With these two new offers, Spark for Education and Creative Cloud for K-12, we’re equipping teachers with the apps, training, and support they need to make this happen. We can’t wait to see all of the amazing things students create on their journey to becoming the creative problem solvers of the future.

Issues fixed in Lightroom Classic CC 7.3.1 (April 2018 release)
 
  • Some presets are not converting to new format. For more information about the solution, see this tech note
  • With B&W legacy presets, the profile resets to Adobe Standard
  • Develop presets not sorting correctly
  • Translation errors in other languages for some profiles
  • Black and White Mix settings - Unable to Copy/Sync
  • Lightroom backup catalog error issues. To resolve corruption issue in the backed up catalogs, update to Lightroom Classic CC v7.3.1 and then back up your catalogs again. If you're backing up your catalogs on macOS, see this known issue related to catalog compression below.
Known issue
 
(Only on macOS) When backing up your catalogs on macOS, Lightroom Classic doesn't compress (zip) catalogs that have a file size less than 4 GB. As a workaround to this issue, manually compress the backed up catalog files. Compressed files take up less hard disk space. By default, Lightroom Classic saves backed up catalogs to the following location on macOS:
 
/Users/[user name]/Pictures/Lightroom/[catalog name]/Backups

Adobe quietly added support for Sony's Pixel Shift Multi Shooting .ARQ files in a recent update to ACR (Adobe Camera RAW). Unfortunately, the .ARQ files cannot be created in ACR, so you still need Imaging Edge to create the merged files. But once they're merged, you can edit them in ACR just like any RAW file.

Adobe has updated Camera RAW by incorporating the Camera Profiles (now simply called "Profiles") section (previously found on the Calibration tab) with the basic tab where Exposure, Contrast, Highlights & Shadows adjustments are made.
 
Surprising is that Adobe has changed the default profile for RAW files to something new – Adobe Color – which features warmer reds, yellows and oranges and increased contrast compared to the previous default, Adobe Standard.
 
Note: If you have created custom camera profiles with an X-Rite Color Checker Passport, you can find them under the "Profiles" section after clicking "Browse Profiles." However,if you choose the "Legacy" section, you'll see previews of Black & White versions of your custom profiles (for some reason). [Sean]

Download the latest updates via the Creative Cloud app and let us know what you think.
 
The February update includes other great features across the ecosystem:

From Adobe:
 
Today we are excited to announce the release of Photoshop 19.1, with improvements for customers on both Mac and Windows. Here is a quick list of all the new features. Read about the complete release below or scroll to your favorite parts:
 
  • Select Subject
  • Select and Mask Improvements
  • Better SVG Compatibility with Adobe XD
  • Support for Microsoft High-Density Monitors and Improved Surface Dial Support
Windows High-Density Monitor Support
 
With this release, Photoshop on Windows 10 Creator’s Edition now offers a full range of choices for UI scale factors from 100% through 400%, in 25% increments. This means that the Photoshop user interface will look crisp, beautiful, and the right size no matter the density of your monitor. Photoshop will now automatically adjust itself based on your Windows settings, making it simple to set up.
 
We collaborated closely with Microsoft to enable this important functionality so you (and I) can wring maximum value out of every tiny pixel on our high-end, high-density screens. This is one of the top requests from Photoshop customers on Windows devices. It’s been a huge improvement for me on my screens, and I hope it is for you, too.
 
In addition, we worked very closely with Microsoft to provide per-monitor scaling across monitors with different scale factors. This means that a high resolution (HiDPI) laptop now works seamlessly alongside a lower resolution desktop monitor (or vice versa). One monitor can have a scale factor of 175% and another a scale factor of 400%. This allows Windows users to choose either the highest-end 13-inch laptops with 4k screens, the more affordable 1080p models, or tap into the new 8k desktop monitors, each with an uncompromised experience within Photoshop. It is wonderful to work with Microsoft and its hardware partners to make that long-desired WYSIWYG dream come true.
 
“The desire to support and create beautiful experiences is something the teams at Adobe and Microsoft have in common. It’s one of the reasons we’ve been working together closely to ensure Photoshop scales perfectly on any Windows 10 device, from the 12.3-inch Surface Pro all the way to the 28-inch Surface Studio. Details matter, both in the creation of products and the creation of art, and we’re excited to continue our partnership to deliver visually exquisite experiences for all our shared customers,” said Panos Panay, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Devices.
 
For resolution geeks who want to know more about pixels and density, go here.
 
While I was focused on pixels, the rest of the Photoshop team was also hard at work and today we deliver even more exciting and useful new features for both Mac and Win customers, including:
 
Select Subject
 

Select Subject is powered by Adobe Sensei and lets you get started with your selections faster than ever before. Select Subject automatically selects the prominent subjects in the image with one click. You can then refine the selection using other selection tools.
 
It’s available in all the places you start selections:
 
  • Select > Subject.+
  • Select the Subject button in the Quick Selection tool and Magic Wand options bar.+
  • Select the Subject button in the Select & Mask workspace options bar while using the Quick Selection tool.
For more info, go here.
 
Select and Mask Improvements
 
A decontamination slider has been added to Select and Mask that allows the user to control the amount of decontamination applied to an image. This feature was also available in Refine Edge and has now been brought to the Select and Mask workspace.
 
Better SVG compatibility with Adobe XD
 
Previously, when copying text with multiple styles and effects, only the first-used style was getting copied. Now, when Photoshop users copy and paste SVG from Photoshop to XD, multiple text styles and effects are supported.
 
Improved Microsoft Surface Dial support
 
Now you can change brush settings while you paint using the Microsoft Surface Dial. Previously, brush settings could only be changed between brush strokes. Now you can assign the Microsoft Surface Dial to control opacity and then adjust opacity as you paint. Assign any dynamic control in the Brush Settings panel to Microsoft Surface Dial, including size, roundness, angle, scatter, texture depth, foreground and background color, opacity, flow, wetness, and mix.
 
Microsoft Surface Dial support is no longer a Technology Preview. (Learn more about tech previews here.) It is now enabled for all users. Enjoy!
 
Customer-Reported Bugs
 
This release also fixes a long list of customer-reported bugs. You can see the full list here.
 
After 21 years on the Photoshop team, every new release is still a pleasure to deliver to our customers. Thank you for continued support.

From Adobe:
 
The goal of this release is to provide perpetual customers additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom. You should only update to Lightroom 6.14 if you are currently holding a license to our perpetual product.
 
Please note, there will be no additional updates after 6.14 for the perpetual, standalone version of Lightroom. You can check out this blog post for more information when this was announced earlier.
 
As always, new cameras are supported for legacy versions of Lightroom, Photoshop, Bridge, After Effects, and Photoshop Elements through the free Adobe DNG Converter.
 
For native camera raw support and ongoing updates with new features try out Lightroom Classic or Lightroom CC. These features include color and luminance range masking and the new auto. This along with other future imaging and performance enhancements are automatically included with a membership.
 
Find the latest available downloads of Lightroom 6 here. If you have a Creative Cloud plan of any type, you do not need to purchase Lightroom 6.
 
You can also find the new cameras and lens profiles that are now supported with 6.14.
 
Thanks!

From Adobe:
 
Today we’re proud to release updates to the entire Lightroom CC ecosystem, including for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and the web, as well as updates to Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Camera Raw. We’ve added support for new cameras and lenses, and added some great new features.
 
New Auto Settings, powered by Adobe Sensei
 
Auto has been completely reworked to create better results, every time. Using an advanced neural network powered by Adobe Sensei, our artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning platform, the new Auto Settings creates a better photo by analyzing your photo and comparing to tens of thousands of professionally edited photos to create a beautiful, pleasing image. The new Auto is available ecosystem wide, including in Lightroom CC, Lightroom CC for iOS, Lightroom CC for Android, Lightroom CC on the web, Lightroom Classic, and Adobe Camera Raw (ACR).
 
The December update includes other great features across the ecosystem:
 
Lightroom CC on Desktop
 
  • Tone Curve – The Tone Curve is one of the most popular tools used by photographers for advanced control over the tonality, contrast, and color balance of an image. You can use either the Parametric Curve or the Point Curve modes to tune the tonality and contrast of the image, and the Red, Green, and Blue modes to adjust the color balance and stylize your image. The Tone Curve lives next to the Auto button in the Light panel — check it out and let us know what you think.
  • Split Toning – Split Toning allows you to stylize your photo through color tints in the highlights and shadows of your image. You can use the Split Toning tool to simulate traditional black and white tints and toners like sepia or selenium toners, simulate printing on colored paper, or create a modern stylization on color images. Split Toning lives in the Effects panel.
  • Change Capture Time – Lightroom CC now enables you to adjust the capture time, for both single photos as well as a set of photos, providing relief for those times that you forgot to change your camera’s time or time zone settings. Select a photo (or series of photos) and use the pencil icon in the Info panel to change capture time. Lightroom CC will update the capture date and make sure that your photos show up on the right day and time in the organize view, making it easier to find your photos when you need them.
  • Full Screen View – View your photos in full screen by using either the F key or by navigating to View-> Detail Full Screen.
Android
 
In addition to the new Auto described above, we added the following to Lightroom CC on Android:
 
  • App Shortcuts — For Android Nougat and later devices, tap and hold on the app icon to quickly launch the app into popular modes.
  • More control for managing storage.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented some Huawei customers from importing images.
  • Resolved an issue that caused a crash for some Pixel 2 customers on export.
  • Resolved a problem that prevented some Samsung customers from installing the previous version.
  • Bug fixes and speed improvements.
iOS
 
In addition to the new Auto described above, we added the following to Lightroom CC on iOS:
 
  • Watermarking on export — Create and customize a text based watermark for use when exporting your image from Lightroom CC on iOS.
  • Improved quality to HDR capturing.
  • Bug fixes and speed improvements.
Lightroom Classic and Adobe Camera Raw
 
In addition to the new Auto described above, we’ve made a refinement to the Color Range Masking tool. Based on your feedback, we’ve made it easier to remove individual sample points. You can do this by holding down the Alt (Win) or Option (Mac) key while using your mouse to select the sample point.
 
Lightroom Classic CC also now supports tethered capture with the Nikon D850 camera.
 
An update to Lightroom 6 for perpetual licensed customers for new camera support will be available on December 19th.
 
We’ve excited about the December update, and can’t wait to hear your thoughts and feedback.

Adobe recently released Lightroom Downloader, a Windows 10 & macOS v10.13 application that allows you to download all synced Lightroom photos to a folder on your hard drive.
 
Notes (from Adobe):
 
  • The app downloads all your Lightroom photos and videos from the cloud as original files and writes them into a date-based folder hierarchy at the hard-drive location that you specify.
  • The edits made to the raw images are written into the XMP sidecar files that accompany the downloaded raw files.
  • For the photos originally uploaded from the Lightroom Classic CC desktop app that only have a Smart Preview synced to the cloud, the app downloads DNG Smart Previews only for such photos.

From Adobe:
 
The goal of this release is to provide perpetual customers additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.
 
A few clarifications for this release:
 
Do I need upgrade to Lightroom 6.13 when Lightroom Classic CC has already launched?
 
You should only update to Lightroom 6.13 if you are currently holding a license to our perpetual, non-subscription-based product.
 
Is this the last upgrade of Lightroom perpetual product?
 
As we align our investments in the direction of supporting our subscription-based products, the last version of Lightroom 6 will be coming out towards the end of the year. If there is a camera not supported in Lightroom 6, you can use the DNG converter before importing your images into Lightroom 6.
 
As a perpetual license customer, can I try out Lightroom Classic in tandem with Lightroom 6 to see if I am interested in upgrading?
 
Yes. We highly encourage you to try out Lightroom Classic to get the additional performance benefits and feature enhancements launched recently and to come. If you are interested in trying out Lightroom Classic, while still keeping a version of Lightroom 6 in tandem on your desktop, check out Lightroom Classic CC 7.0.1.
