Adobe Releases Lightroom Updates Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

Adobe has released March updates to Lightroom Classic and desktop and mobile versions of Lightroom today. A summary of those improvements follows:


Lightroom Classic 4.2 includes the following features:

  • Performance Improvements: Performance has been improved on macOS for filmstrip and grid scrolling. Batch editing functions like Copy/Paste, Sync, Quick Develop and Auto-Sync are quicker.
  • Tethered Live View for Nikon [beta]: When active, the camera's Live View will appear in a re-sizeable window with the option to rotate the orientation. Feature focus control buttons will also appear in the tether bar when enabled by the camera and lens settings, including Auto-Focus. Still in beta, support for the Z series is not yet implemented.
  • Support for New Cameras, Lenses: See the full list of supported cameras and supported lenses.
  • Red-Eye Removal: No longer part of the Copy/Paste workflow, red-eye removal can now only be copied to other images using Auto Sync.


Lightroom 6.2 includes the following features:

  • Personalized Feed: The Learn & Discover panel's For You tab now appears in the Desktop version of Mobile.
  • Profile Support for Apple ProRaw: A new default profile for ProRaw images promises Lightroom desktop and mobile will match the in-camera rendering.
  • Combine Notifications: Notifications now combine feedback rather than sending individual reactions in separate notifications.
  • Mute Settings: You can see what an image looks like without a panel's settings by pressing the Eye icon in the panel.
  • Support for New Cameras, Lenses: See the full list of supported cameras and supported lenses.
  • Edited Filter: The Edited filter below the Search bar shows which images have been edited.


The updates are available now either through Creative Cloud or the various app stores.
