Adobe Releases a Free Lightroom Update (with fixes and a VERY cool new Pano feature)

Hi Gang:  Adobe released a free update to Lightroom CC (bringing it to version 2015.4) and it includes a new feature to help you deal with those white gaps left in the corner of panos that you’d normally have to jump over to Photoshop to manually fix it one way or another. It’s called Boundary Warp and you can see it in action below (image from Adobe):

Pretty amazing right?

Other stuff (Lightroom 6 users get this stuff, too, but not Boundary Warp above – that’s just for CC subscribers):
They fixed the issue Nikon users have been having (not being able to tether into Mac OS El Capitan)

Plus, this stuff listed on Adobe’s official Lightroom Blog:

  • Nikon 1 J4 Camera Matching Profile added
  • The panorama merging process should complete roughly twice as fast as Lightroom 6.3
  • Improved quality when applying Auto Straighten and Upright “Level” mode
  • A preference was added to the Mac to prevent accidental “speed swiping”
  • Metadata is added to merged panoramas to support Photoshop’s Adaptive Wide Angle filter
  • Customers can now set the location of where photos are stored when downloaded from Lightroom mobile or Lightroom web in the preference panel or contextually in the folder panel
  • Thumbnails update much quicker when copying and pasting settings in the grid view
  • Images load faster in the Library module when you are zoomed in and navigating images
  • Tethered support added for the Nikon D5500 and Nikon D7200

Here’s the link for the full list of new features, cameras, lens and fixes.

That’s it – I’m in Atlanta today for my “Shoot Like a Pro Seminar.” Hope I’ll be meeting you here today!

Best,

-Scott

    I wish I could have taken advantage of this update but it broke my Lightroom. I didn’t read the fine print about OSX 10.8.5 not being supported until it was too late. I spent hours with Adobe support trouble shooting and reverting to a supported version.

    Unless Adobe decides to refund my monthly fee … I would not consider this update to be “free” … Yes, this update came at no additional cost to CC subscribers, but that does not equate to free.

    These updates are part of the deal we are paying for as per the CC EULA. These updates are not benevolent gifts from Adobe. If they were, then all the users of the perpetual version of Lr 6 should receive the features as well. If they really are “free” …

      I totally agree. I went from spending $80 every two years for a LR upgrade to being FORCED to purchase LR and PS at a cost of $240 every two years….I’d say that’s far from free as well.

        Rich, you’ve only included the cost for the LR upgrade. Add in the PS upgrade cost and it is probably a break even proposition.

          Sorry Frank, but you are not right…if you want to purchase only LR, there is no other way in CC than LR + PS…so you are paying extra $160 for PS you don´t want…
