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.

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.

Project Gemini enables artists to use and sync their favorite Photoshop brushes and works seamlessly with Photoshop CC.
Unparalleled Productivity Enhancements with Adobe Sensei
 
The 2019 release of Creative Cloud delivers more than a dozen new Adobe Sensei-powered features and productivity enhancements – building on dozens of existing Sensei-powered features already available to Adobe Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud customers. Sensei-powered features in the 2019 release include:
 
  • An expanded Content-Aware Fill workspace in Photoshop CC that offers greater precision and control to save editors valuable time when working with their images.
  • A new Content-Aware Fit feature in InDesign CC that intelligently detects an image and crops or fits it to an image frame automatically.
  • New Freeform Gradients in Illustrator CC that enable the creation of natural gradients.
  • A new tool in Character Animator CC, Characterizer, that transforms any style of portrait into a vivid, animated character.
Designed to make creatives more successful and supercharge their productivity, the 2019 Creative Cloud release delivers significant performance and usability improvements, greater cross-application integration, intuitive collaboration features and faster access to file assets and services. Among the new capabilities, Adobe is optimizing the in-app Start experience to accelerate customer on-boarding with new apps and improve discoverability of new features and product capabilities.
 
Additional workflow improvements include a contextually-aware Properties Panel in InDesign CC to display options based on the object selected, expanded Undo and auto-resizing in Photoshop CC, a customizable toolbar in Illustrator CC and a modern UI in Bridge CC with support for bulk uploads of libraries.

From Adobe:
 
The Elements team is excited to announce the release of Photoshop Elements 2019 & Premiere Elements 2019.
 
The 2019 release focuses on:
 
A home screen designed for you
 
The first thing you’ll notice when opening Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements 2019 is the brand-new Elements Home Screen that welcomes you every time you open the apps. The new Home Screen offers a personalized experience by surfacing info on what’s new since your last version of Elements and content suited to your level of expertise.
 
Auto creations, made just for you
 
Beautiful photo and video slideshows and collages are automatically created just for you highlighting memorable moments like birthdays and vacations and delivered upon launch in the Home Screen. It’s all thanks to photo and video automation powered by Adobe Sensei AI technology.
 
Beyond the Home Screen, there are a number of exciting new features and enhancements across Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements 2019 to help you create stunning photo creations, videos, and movies so that you can then quickly share your memories in print, DVDs, the web and across your social media channels.
 
So, let’s dig in to what’s new and enhanced.
 
Redesigned photo collages
 
In this release we’ve redesigned your photo collage creation experience so that you can create collages with fewer clicks and quickly choose from stylish new templates that look great as Instagram posts and more. You also have the ability to customize your photo collages by adding frames and changing up backgrounds for the perfect finishing touch.
 
Guided edits
 
Photoshop Elements 2019 is introducing four all-new Guided Edits, bringing the total to 53 step-by-step photo editing guides to help you quickly edit and create.
 
  • Create amazing multi-photo text: Now you can design visual text that features a different photo inside each letter to make words or names that look great as wall art, invitation cards or scrapbook pages.
  • Make fun memes: This Guided Edit walks you through the process of typing in text, adding filters, borders and more to turn your photos into memes that are perfect for sharing on social media.
  • Turn part of your photo into a sketch: Make a unique artistic statement by turning part of a favorite photo into a sketch by brushing on the medium of your choice, including colored pencil, old paper, or an aged photo look.
  • Add polish with text and border overlays: This new Guided Edit teaches you how to embellish photos with borders and text that make them stand out – whether you plan to print it out or post it online to social media.
Enjoy better performance and HEIF support
 
The team worked hard to improve your experience with Photoshop Elements, and you’ll notice it right off the bat with a faster download and installation process and improved performance throughout common photo editing tasks. We’ve also added support for importing and editing HEIF images on macOS.
 
Redesigned Quick Edit mode
 
Creating your movies is now easier than ever with our completely redesigned Quick Edit mode. The new, user-friendly, editing interface presents you with two options:
 
  • Smart Trim, which automatically finds your best footage and walks you through a series of steps for trimming a video.
  • A simplified Sceneline for combining clips, photos, titles, music and more into a unique production that you can then share on DVD, the web or social media.
Guided edits
 
Premiere Elements 2019 is introducing two all-new Guided Edits, bringing the total to 20 step-by-step video editing guides in Premiere Elements that help you get started.
 
  • Make glass pane effects: This Guided Edit helps you make the action in your scene appear like its taking place behind the glass. You’ll learn how to add a video overlay to create this sleek look.
  • Create Luma fade transitions: Add a professional looking dramatic scene transition, which walks you through the process of fading in the colors from darkest to lightest in your video creations.
Enjoy better performance plus VFR, HEIC and HEVC support
 
Just like in Photoshop Elements, you’ll experience the same faster download and installation process and improved performance on common video editing tasks. We’ve also added support for variable frame rate (VFR), import and editing of HEIF images on macOS and HEVC video on macOS 10.13 and above.

From Adobe:
 
As we prepare for our next major release of Creative Cloud, we wanted to share some information on updated operating system requirements. To take advantage of the latest operating system features and technologies, the next major release of Creative Cloud will not support Windows 8.1, Windows 10 v1511 and v1607, and Mac OS 10.11 (El Capitan). For more detailed information about operating system requirements for the next major release of Adobe video and audio tools, see this post.

Creative Cloud Desktop, which manages application installs, will continue to be supported on Windows 7 or later and Mac OS X v10.9 or later.
 
Focusing our efforts on more modern versions of Windows and Mac operating systems allows us to concentrate on developing the features and functionality most requested by members, while ensuring peak performance that takes advantage of modern hardware.
