What's New in Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC 2019

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.

Improved Search

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

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.
 
B&H carries Adobe Photography Plan subscriptions.
