Lightroom 5.3 Release Candidate Available

Adobe Labs just announced that the Lightroom 5.3 Release Candidate is out. The biggest thing you’ll find in this “dot” release is support for some new cameras (especially Sony’s A7’s and the new Nikon cameras). There’s a few bug fixes too, but none were anything that I ran into. I personally don’t usually install release candidate versions of the software, but if you’ve got one of those new cameras and want Lightroom support it’s worth it. Here’s the link if you want to check it out.

    Having problems with lightroom 5.3. Unable to delete files from disk when editing through lightroom. Also I’ve been getting copies of my images on my drive and I don’t understand what’s causing this. I’ve been a lightroom user since it first came out and never had problems before. When I try to contact lightroom they tell me I am not eligible for support?
    It seems they have no support for their products anymore. It never used to be like that.

    am totally confused…I shot in raw today but my files are only like 3.6 MB they used to be like 20.0 MB what setting do i have wrong in LR5? (Just downloaded new LR5)
    I just imported into iPhoto and the same image was 14.6 and it is 3.6 in lightroom….hmmmm
    I have researched and researched can’t figure it out….never ever had this problem in LR4
    Any ideas….desperate
    None of my export boxes are checked either…so I know it isn’t export…has to be import….Will you address…?

    This is sort of amusing, since the Sony A7r is not available yet. When I bought a new Canon a couple of years ago, it was a lot of weeks before Lightroom/ACR support was provided.

      All the more reason I wish camera manufacturers would actually let us shoot in DNG. That way we wouldn’t have to worry about timing updates to cameras. With all the new cameras released, you can’t put the blame on Adobe for updates, so having one raw format that we all could use would help out.

        Hey Matt, do you always convert to DNG before processing in LR and ACR? I’ve been thinking about doing that, but not sure if there would be any adverse affects. I shot with Canon 7D, which uses the CR2 format.
