A New Lightroom is Here (and with it a whole new Ecosystem)

    It’s been more than two years since we’ve gotten a new version of Lightroom, and I’m very excited to tell you about what’s new, but I have to start by providing some historical context. I also want to give you a heads-up that this isn’t just about a new version of Lightroom; there’s also a whole new application (for both Mac and Windows) in the mix. For clarity’s sake, as there’s likely to be confusion, I’m going to use...

New Lightroom News Coming? Before we get to our tip: Make sure you check back here tomorrow after Adobe’s MAX keynote in the morning in case there’s some big Lightroom news (historically there usually is lots of Lightroom news at the Adobe MAX keynote, so check back here just in case ).

This case of the missing blog posts….

Greetings from Marrakech, Morocco. 🙂 So, if you’ve been wondering where this week’s posts have been, they’re somewhere in the desert in Morocco, where Internet access is…well…I’m not sure you could really call it “access.” Picture dial-up speed, then picture whatever would be way, way, slower than that. Now pour molasses on top of that. That’s what we’ve had, but now I’m in the...
