The always awesome Terry White kicked off a new photography podcast a few weeks ago, and in the episode, I’ve embedded below the first 20 minutes are all about what’s new in the February updates to Lightroom Classic, Lightroom Cloud for Desktop and Lightroom Mobile.

Really good stuff – worth checking out at least the first 20 minutes, but if you’re new to Lightroom Classic, keep watching as he’s got some great info for new users.

Is Terry not great, right? Told ya! 🙂

    Interesting – when Terry shows the drop-down menu for Presets there is a huge list under User Presets which includes Lens Corrections and loads more.

    On mine there is a very short list – color , creative B/W and a few others – none of them showing Lens Corrections.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for checking Rob & Callmebob. I try to reinstall the previous version and will check again (later in the week). Maybe it will be the new raw setup which I set to camera specific at import, even I can’t imagine it.

    I’m pretty sure they did something with the development module. It doesn’t react right as it did before. The auto development which I sometimes use as a starting point does now over expose heavily with a HDR effect, i.e. highlights set to zero and shadows very high. The histogram is too much to the right (at least mostly the blues). And highlight slider does not react as before. Either to the left nor to the right side.

    Anybody watches this, too?

      No, I don’t see any difference in that behavior. In fact, I took an image edited in prior version where Auto was used, then reset the Basic panel, then re-applied Auto and the settings were the same as it was in the prior version.

      I don’t usually use it, but tried it with every release and it had gotten pretty reasonable.
      Tried today on several previously imported files, was really heavy to the right as you note but I didn’t see an issue with the slider itself.

      With the clipping display (J in english/US keyboard) on – I personally do a shift-double-click on blacks, whites, shadows, highlights in order then adjust the exposure/contrast/curve and go from there. Maybe useful to someone .
