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.

From the Adobe Blog:
 
Today we’re proud to release updates to the entire Lightroom CC ecosystem, including updates for Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS. We’ve optimized performance, added support for new cameras and lenses, and added some great new features for desktop and Android.
 
Our primary focus with this release was internal beauty, as we put a lot of effort into tuning and improving stability. In Lightroom CC on Mac and Windows, you’ll notice big improvements like moving to the next photo, grid scrolling, and exporting, while all apps have become a lot more stable. 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:
 
LrCC desktop
 
Add copyright to imported images
 
The new Copyright preference (listed under Preferences -> General) enables you to automatically include your copyright on all photos added to Lightroom CC. All images added after you enable this preference will include your copyright.
 
LrCC Android
 
Geometry tab — premium editing features
 
Now the most powerful tools for correcting perspective distortion are available on a mobile device. Use the Auto Upright tools to automatically identify how to correct your photo or use the incredibly precise Guided Upright tool to take complete control over your photo. Additional control provided with the Geometry sliders helps you take the correction even further.
 
Available now on Android devices and coming soon to iOS.
 
Add watermark on export
 
First introduced for mobile on iOS and now available on Android, you can use the Watermark feature to add a text-based watermark when you share or save your photos. You can find this feature under the Preferences > Sharing Options menu.
 
Search your Lightroom library with Google Assistant — premium feature
 
Our Adobe Sensei-based search algorithms are now accessible from your phone’s home screen. Open the Google Assistant and, for example, say, “Search mountains in Lightroom” to launch Lightroom and find matching photos. This feature requires an internet connection and Android Marshmallow or later.
 
Add photos to Lightroom from your favorite apps
 
A new “Add to Lr” option is now available within the share sheet of your favorite apps, enabling you to send photos from another app directly into your Lightroom library, making it easier than ever to get all of your photos into Lightroom.

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.

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.

From the Adobe Lightroom Journal (authored by Priya Alexander):
 
We understand we sent perpetual customers down a path of subscribing to a trial version of the new Lightroom Classic CC last week, replacing already installed versions of Lightroom 6.
 
The good news is we fixed this issue and wanted to get a quick release out to immediately address your concerns. Now once you click on the “Update” button next to Lightroom Classic CC, you will see under the Advanced Options, the “Remove old versions” is unchecked by default. As a result, you can try out Lightroom Classic CC for the trial period and still keep Lightroom 6 running in tandem on your desktop.
 
We sincerely apologize for not providing a better user experience for our perpetual customers to try out Lightroom Classic CC while still keeping Lightroom 6 in place. This was a mistake on our end. Please let us know if you are experiencing any additional issues with this process moving forward.
 
What is the difference between Lightroom Classic CC 7.0 vs. Lightroom Classic CC 7.0.1?
 
The difference is the fix mentioned above, which only impacts perpetual customers, and the customer issue below, which impacts both perpetual and monthly subscribers. If any customer is experiencing crashes in High Sierra upon import from external devices (SD cards/iPhone, etc.), we recommend you upgrade to 7.0.1. Regardless, it’s best to stay up to date with the latest version of Lightroom Classic, and it’s free to do so as a paid, monthly subscriber.
 
How can I download Lightroom 6 if it’s already been removed in the process of downloading Lightroom CC Classic before this release?
 
Please follow the steps referenced under “Reinstall Lightroom 6.”
 
What happens if I attempt to update all apps that I am subscribed to?

From Adobe:
 
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.
 
Today, we also released versions of Lr for iOS and Android that provide updated camera support. Check them out here.
 
A few clarifications for this release:
 
What happened to Lightroom CC 2015.11/6.11?
 
Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw releases are tightly coupled as both products share the Camera Raw imaging technology. As a product team, we decided to skip Camera Raw version 9.11 and instead use 9.12 due to the unfortunate events that occurred on that day. In keeping our version naming consistent, Lightroom is releasing CC 2015.12 / 6.12.
 
Will performance enhancements that I requested via the survey here be in this release?
 
Lightroom CC 2015.12 / 6.12 does not include performance improvements based on your survey responses. We appreciate your candid feedback on Lightroom performance, and are working on several projects to address your concerns.
 
New Camera Support in Lightroom CC 2015.12/6.12

From the Lightroom Journal:
 
Today, we’ve got lots of great updates for Lightroom for iOS and Android.
 
iOS
Available now through the iOS App Store, today’s release includes a new selective brush, a new details tab, and an improved interface for iPads. As always, Lightroom for iOS is free to use and can be downloaded here.
 
Selective Brush
 
One of the most requested features in Lightroom for iOS is now here—the selective brush. Using this tool, you can selectively paint in enhancements to any part of your image. If you’re using an iPhone that supports 3D Touch (such as an iPhone 6s or later), you can even vary the effect by just pressing softer or harder as you paint. And for iPad Pro users working with an Apple Pencil, you get the same capability—press harder to apply more of the effect, or softer to apply less.
 
We’ve also added in the ability to selectively erase both the linear and radial gradients, making them even more powerful than before.
 
Details Tab
 
Another often requested feature has been added in this release—global control over sharpening and noise reduction. These advanced tools are often used to add the finishing touches to photographs by controlling noise and enhancing image details.
 
New iPad Interface
 
With the introduction of the iPad Pro, and now the iPad Pro 2, the iPad has become a serious option as a laptop replacement for any photographer. To that end, we’ve worked hard to make a truly portable and yet powerful version of Lightroom that is designed for the larger touch-based interface of an iPad.
Android
We wanted to provide the best Android experience possible so we redesigned Lightroom for Android from the ground up to be faster, more efficient, and, well, more Android-y. Every screen has been redesigned with the goal of ensuring a natural, native Android experience while providing the highest quality, professional-grade mobile photo editing app ever.
 
Check out some of the new and updated interfaces by downloading this free update now by tapping here.

From Adobe:
 
Lightroom CC 2015.8
 
Introducing Reference View
 
Reference View is a new view mode available in the Develop Module that allows you to compare 2 different images in order to make them visually consistent. This is helpful when making a group of images from a single event look similar or setting the white balance appropriately in mixed lighting conditions.
 
To get started,
 
  1. Go to the Develop Module
  2. Click on Reference View. Its on the Toolbar, and you may need to show the Toolbar if hidden
  3. Drag and Drop your Reference Photo onto the left pane. You can change your Reference Photo by either dragging a different image onto the left pane or using the “Set as Reference Photo” context menu in the Library Module.
  4. Edit the active photo. Use the Reference Photo to guide your editing decisions.
Click here for more information on Reference View.
 
Performance Improvements
 
Lightroom CC (2015.8) / 6.8 includes ‘under-the-hood’ changes designed to improve the responsiveness of your Lightroom experience. You should notice improvements in image editing responsiveness when background tasks (such as Preview Generation) are running, moving files between folders, running catalog backups.
 
Fit/Fill Improvements
 
You can now zoom to fit and zoom to fill. Particularly when using ultra high-resolution (i.e. 4K and 5K) monitors, prior versions of Lightroom would not completely fill the Loupe window.
 
Additional Features
 
  • Ability to filter or create a Smart Collection for images that have Snapshots associated with them.
  • Export a Collection Set as a new catalog.
New Camera and Lens Profile Support in Lightroom CC (2015.8) / 6.8

Lightroom Mobile Updates
 
Lightroom for iPhones includes a new edit experience, a new info section, a new capture interface with a brand new professional mode, support for all of the latest cameras and lenses provided in today’s Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom releases, as well as bug fixes and improvements. Lightroom for iPads adds in the new capture interface, camera and lens support, and bug fixes, and Lightroom for Android provides support for new cameras and lenses as well as bug fixes. To download Lightroom for iOS and Android, tap here.
 
The teams for both Lightroom for iPads as well as Lightroom for Android are also working on adding in the new edit and info experiences and we hope to release those updates soon.
 
Check out the new series of videos our very own Julieanne Kost has made covering Lightroom Mobile from end-to-end, including these new features, by clicking here.
 
In Lightroom for iPhones, you’ll find the following updates:
 
New Edit Interface
 
Lightroom mobile 2.6 represents a significant evolution of editing on mobile devices. We wanted to improve the ability to quickly find and access tools and ensure the fastest way to enhance and edit images on a phone. Our design team reached out to photographers of all skill levels to help us figure out how people edit with Lightroom mobile, what’s missing, and how we could make it even better. This update represents our first release taking advantage of this research.
 
Finally, we built ways of expanding the interface so that additional groups of functionality could be added in, like the often requested ability to add in titles, captions, and copyright from mobile devices. This new interface extensibility means we can continue to deliver on the features that photographers have been asking for, turning their mobile devices into more and more capable image processing devices.
 
New Capture Interface and Professional Mode
 
Version 2.6 also adds in a brand new capture interface (the same that Android users received earlier this year) that provides access to a new professional mode that provides control over all aspects of your camera’s exposure and focus. This new mode makes it easy to dial in exactly the exposure you need to capture the shot you want.
 
These updates are all available now, tap here to download.

 Wednesday, July 13, 2016
From the Adobe Lightroom Journal:
 
Two big updates for Lightroom for mobile are now available for download: Lightroom for iOS 2.4 and Lightroom for Android 2.1.
 
Lightroom for iOS 2.4
 
In version 2.4, two major improvements have been added: a raw technology preview and the addition of local adjustment tools. In addition to these major improvements, we’ve also added the ability to use keyboard shortcuts with physical keyboards connected to iPads, the ability to add your copyright to all imported photos, functionality to turn on lens profiles (if your camera and lens combination are supported), as well as the usual bug fixes and improvements.
 
Raw Technology Preview
 
We’re sure it’s happened to you before: you’re out taking photos (in raw of course) and you capture a real stunner that you can’t wait to share with the world. Until now, you had to either transfer a JPEG version of the file over or you had to wait until you got back to your desktop or laptop. With the raw technology preview, you’ll be able to import raw photos immediately to either your iPhone or iPad, edit them, and then share them, anywhere you’ve got a connection. Our goal with Lightroom for mobile is to make it an indispensable part of your photography workflow, providing the tools that you’re familiar with and the quality you expect in a product that can be with you, no matter when inspiration strikes. With this technology preview, we want to push the boundaries of how photographers around the world work with their mobile devices.
 
You get all of the benefits of raw, such as the ability to change the white balance, being able to recover blown out highlights, access to the full range of color information, as well as editing an uncompressed file, all using the exact same technology that powers Lightroom on your desktop. An added benefit is that the raw file that you’ve imported into Lightroom for iOS will be synced with Lightroom on your other devices, such as Lightroom for desktop or Lightroom on the web, along with any of the edits, star ratings, or flags that you added.
 
Lightroom for mobile supports all of the same raw files that Lightroom for desktop as well as Adobe Camera Raw support, with the full list available here.
 
To transfer photos to your mobile device, you need to use either the camera connection kit or the lightning to SD or USB kits from Apple to transfer your raw files over to your device, which will bring up the Import tab within the iOS Photos app. Importing the files will add them into your camera roll, where you can then access and load in any raw file directly into Lightroom mobile. It’s important to keep in mind that raw files are significantly larger (3-5 times larger) than JPEGs, meaning the raw files will take longer to import, upload, and take up more space on your device. Even as such, we found that the added control and quality that the raw files afforded were so useful that it outweighed the negatives.
 
Just as when working with raw files that were synced from Lightroom for desktop or Lightroom on the web, you’ll be able to perform raw-specific enhancements, such as changing the white balance with greater control and recovering clipped highlights, but unlike when working with raw files synced from Lightroom for desktop, you’ll have access to the full resolution file AND you can do it anywhere in the world, even from your iPhone!
 
We’ve run Lightroom for mobile through its paces on a number of different files, including the 50MP Canon 5DS running on an iPhone 6, proving that you really can edit nearly any photo anywhere. After playing with the app for a few months, we’ve found that it’s a really great way to take a few of your favorite images from the day (or even that you just captured), review to make sure you captured what you saw, edit, and then share them, all right away, and with all of your edits carried through the rest of the Lightroom ecosystem.
 
We had the pleasure of working with a number of photographers while creating the raw technology preview, take a look at how travel photographer Elia Locardi was able to put the technology to use while shooting on location in Greece.
 
You can read more about the images that were created for this release through an article about Elia on Adobe Create as well as on Elia’s own blog.
 
Linear and Radial Selections
 
In addition to the raw technology preview, we’ve also added in the ability to perform local adjustments with linear and radial selections, the two most requested features after raw support.
 
Lightroom for Mobile iOS Linear Selection

With the Linear and Radial Selection tools, you can either add or modify existing selections made to your photos and use the tools to draw attention to certain parts of your images.
 
Lightroom for iOS Availability
 
Lightroom mobile 2.4 is available immediately for iPhone and iPad from the iOS App Store for free. Both of these improvements are available only for members with a creative cloud subscription.
 
Lightroom for Android 2.1
 
While the iOS team was working hard on the raw technology preview, the Android team doubled-down on the unique end-to-end DNG capture experience first announced in Lightroom for Android 2.0 and created a brand new capture experience. Our goal is to create the best mobile photography experience available, and with the amazing quality possible on Android devices, especially thanks to DNG raw capture, we wanted to provide all of the controls and functionality needed.
 
Now, the built-in camera has a new Pro mode that lets you control the shutter speed, ISO, white balance, and focus all manually, in a brand new interface.
 
You can access the camera directly using the new Lightroom Camera widget. This new widget will launch the Lightroom camera directly, making it faster for you to get in and start taking pictures.
 
In addition to the new built-in camera, we’ve also improved the app’s ability to export full-resolution files. If the files are available somewhere within the Lightroom ecosystem, Lightroom for Android will now download the full resolution version and enable you to export them.
 
You can download Lightroom for Android 2.1 here now for free.
