Whatever version of Lightroom you use; today it got an update.
Adobe’s Lightroom CC ecosystem has grown in many ways over the years. From the popular desktop app into both major mobile platforms, the ecosystem ensures that, no matter what medium you are processing an image on, you can utilize the familiar tools available in Lightroom CC. Today, continuing their promise to provide frequent updates and upgrades, Adobe announced a slew of updates for all of the apps in the Lightroom CC ecosystem.
Each of the various ecosystem apps; Lightroom CC, Lightroom CC for Android, Lightroom CC for iOS, and Lightroom Classic CC all got some updates specific to those applications. Adobe also announced one update that has gone into each of the four applications and improved Auto Settings Mode.
This new ‘Auto Settings’ functionality will be utilizing machine learning powered by Adobe Sensei to analyze your images and adjust settings for a beautiful image in one click. While this may not be a tool professionals want to make use of, the ability for those not as well versed in post-processing techniques to easily achieve a decent edit on their dull RAW images is a great addition to the ecosystem. As well, thanks to the machine learning piece of that puzzle, the more the feature is used the better that it will get over time.
Ecosystem App highlight Updates Include:
- Lightroom CC for Android – New App Shortcuts, Better Storage Management, Various Bug/Speed Improvements.
- Lightroom CC for iOS – Support for Watermarking on Export, Improved HDR Quality, Various Bug/Speed Improvements.
- Lightroom CC – Addition of Tone Curve and Spit Toning Tools, Full-Screen View, and the Ability to change the image capture time.
- Lightroom Classic CC – Refinements to the Color Range Masking Tool, Improved the ability to more easily remove individual sample points and Nikon D850 tethering support.
All of these updates are now live and should be available through their respective app stores, or through the Adobe CC app on your Desktop/Laptop computer. You can also get more details from Adobe over on their blog post, here.
