Adobe Releases Lightroom Update With New “Guided Upright” Lens Correction Feature

Hi Gang: Well, while I was on the road this week, Adobe released a Lightroom CC update with a new really slick feature for lens corrections called “Guided Upright” which adds a new Transform panel to the Develop Module that Adobe says lets you “…provide ‘hints’ that enable Upright to work its magic.  You draw the vertical and horizontal lines directly on the image and Upright will automatically transform the image.”

Here’s a quick video from Adobe’s own Julieanne Kost on the new Guided Upright feature:

Besides the Guided Upright addition, you can now create Panos using just Smart Previews (instead of having to have the full high-res file available — whoo hoo!), and in Lightroom’s Preferences, under the Lightroom Mobile tab, they added a new “Sync Status” area to help you see the status of your images being sync’d to mobile.

Of course, there are lots of camera support updates, tethered camera models updates, and new lens profiles, along with some bug fixes (always welcome). Here’s a link to the full list of cameras and lens profiles added in this update, direct from Adobe’s own Lightroom Journal.

To get this free CC update:
If you’re a Lightroom CC user; go under Lightroom’s Help Menu and choose Updates. This update will not be available to Lightroom 6 users (link).

In other news: 
Many thanks to the 500+ photographers who came out to my seminars in Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale this week – really enjoyed meeting so many enthusiastic, eager, and just fun people! Next stop on my seminar tour: Nashville on Monday, August 15th.

Also, today’s the last day to save $100 on the Photoshop World conference next month!
The early bird discount ends today (yikes!), so if you’re planning on joining us next month in Vegas for three solid days of Lightroom and Photography fun, go right here, right now and reserve your tickets. 🙂

OK, I gotta head in to the office…
Hope you all have a great Friday; an awesome weekend, and we’ll catch you back here next week. 🙂

Best,

-Scott

P.S. Did I mention the whole “…today’s the last day to save $100 on Photoshop World thing?” Oh, OK. Just makin’ sure. 😉

    • If you’ve updated Photoshop, you should see it in the tool bar on right beside the straight horizon tool and spot healing brush. All you need to select the “Guided” the last option on the right.
      Hope this helps 🙂

      • Thanks Alex – I couldn’t find it in Photoshop, but I did find it in ACR where I do all those kinds of adjustments anyway. Looks good.

  1. The perspective looked more realistic in the original picture in my opinion. Learn to take better pictures and don’t need all this magic.

    • I tend to agree, or rent a tilt shift lens 🙂

  2. Played with it today. Much better than the old approach. Shorter workflow time is a good thing.

    • Not sure how that’s shorter workflow time but okay.
