Adobe has updated "the entire Lightroom CC ecosystem, including for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and the web, as well as Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Camera Raw," the company announced this morning.

New camera support includes the iPhone 8/8 Plus/X, Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III, Google Pixel 2/2 XL, GoPro Fusion/Hero6 Black/ Hasselblad A6D-100c. Leica CL, Panasonic G9 and Sony a7RIII.

Support has also been extended to lenses from Apple, Canon, Goolg,e GoPro, Hassselblad, Lomography, Moment, MS Optical, Nikon, Sigma, Sony Tamron and Voigtlander.

With the Camera Raw revisions, Adobe's free DNG Converter has also been updated to version 10.1.


New features introduced in the updates include:

  • New Auto Settings: Powered by Adobe Sensei and available ecosystem-wide, the new Auto has been completely reworked to create better results.
  • Lightroom CC on desktop received several new features, including a Tone Curve, Split Toning, ability to change capture time and a Full Screen View.
  • Lightroom CC on Android now has App Shortcuts, more control for managing storage and several bug fixes and speed improvements.
  • Lightroom CC on iOS now includes watermarking on export, improved quality to HDR capturing, bug fixes and speed improvements.
  • Lightroom Classic CC updates include a refinement to the Color Range Masking tool and the ability to more easily remove individual sample points, as well as support for tethered capture with the Nikon D850 camera.


The company detailed the new features in Sharad Mangalick's Adobe blog post titled Lightroom Classic CC. He notes, "An update to Lightroom 6 for perpetual licensed customers for new camera support will be available on Dec. 19."

In December Updates for Lightroom Classic and Adobe Camera Raw, Julieanne Kost gives a very brief overview of the new features.

And in New Updates to Lightroom -- December 2017, Terry White goes a little deeper.

We're in the process of updating our "ecosystem" at the moment, which included a strange Creative Cloud app glitch, but apart from a small refinement to Classic and the additional camera and lens support in Camera Raw, the thrust of the update is to flesh out some deficiencies in the cloud version Lightroom.
