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.

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.

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

Lightroom CC 2015.6 and Lightroom 6.6 are now available. The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom. This release also includes a new Guided Upright feature for Creative Cloud members.
 
Thank you for all your feedback and passion for Lightroom.
 
Introducing Guided Upright
 
We included Upright as a tool that helped Lightroom customers easily straighten images, fix horizons, and reduce or eliminate the keystone effect in buildings. Upright works well when there are prominent vertical and horizontal lines. Not all images contain prominent lines, limiting the effectiveness of Upright.
 
Starting with Lightroom CC 2015.6, Guided Upright allows you to provide ‘hints’ that enable Upright to work its magic. You draw the vertical and horizontal lines directly on the image and Upright will automatically transform the image. Here’s how to get started.
 
  1. Select an image and click on the Develop Module.
  2. Enable Lens Profile Corrections. Upright works better with Lens Profile Corrections.
  3. Notice that there is a new “Transform” Panel. Transform includes both Upright and the manual perspective correction sliders together in a convenient place.
  4. Within Transform, click on the “Guided” button.
  5. Draw 2-4 guides on the image. Upright will transform the image once you draw at least 2 guides.
  6. Fine tune the results (if needed) with the manual transform slides, including the new X and Y transform sliders. They can be used for repositioning/moving the image within the canvas after applying strong perspective corrections to choose which part of the (warped, non-rectangular) image to show within the rectangular canvas.

New Camera Support in Lightroom CC 2015.6 / 6.6
 
  • Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
  • Leica M-D (Typ 262)
  • Nikon COOLPIX B700
  • Panasonic DMC-GX85 (DMC-GX80, DMC-GX7MK2)
Also please note that Lightroom CC 2015.6/6.6 also includes camera matching color profiles for the Pentax 645Z, Pentax K-1, and Pentax K-3 II cameras.
 
Additional Updates in Lightroom CC 2015.6 / 6.6
 
  • Merge to Panorama and HDR now works with Smart Previews. Previously, Lightroom required the use of original images for the Merge to Panorama or HDR features.
  • The Preferences -> Lightroom mobile section now contains a “Pending Sync Activity” section. This area is useful for helping identify any potential issues related to image sync across the Lightroom family of applications (desktop, mobile and web).
Tethered Camera Support for the following cameras:
 
  • Canon EOS-1D X Mark II
  • Canon EOS 80D
  • Canon EOS 1300D / Canon Rebel T6
New Lens Profile Support in Lightroom CC 2015.6 / 6.6*
