    This is amazing! This is a really great tool for photographers and will be a massive boon to all those looking to make those perfect tweaks to their work.

    I’m sure I’ll be picking this up as soon as I can to add to my large collection of editing software!

    Hi All,

    So far the only problem I have had is that none of my “User Templates” show up in the Print Module, …. I have a lot of user templates.

    One cool feature / change is that the backup of your catalog file is compressed/zipped. one of my catalogs is 100MB – after compression, it’s only 32MB. If you’ve had space issues, this will give you room for at least a couple of raw files 🙂

    Could someone post a link to the actual purchase of the standalone version of LR? I’m lost in an endless circle of shills to join Creative Cloud and I don’t want to join CC. Thank you.

    Hi guys,

    I’m very happy with the new features but I’m finding LRCC running significantly slower. And I’m on a current Mac Mini dual core 17 with 16G RAM. Any thoughts??

    You guys pray it like it is the next world wonder. The really new things are face recognition and panorama. Better performance? Nope. Menus show up quicker but that’s it.

    I use a MBPro retina and have a small catalog with few nefs on the SSD. Scrolling through the images needs 6 sec. for each image to show up. Photo Mechanic f.e. has no delay even when using the loupe. In camera locked (tagged) photos are still not recognized. OK, PM is still needed.

    Same old bugs are still in LR6. Set an image with one keyword and synchronize metadata. Then change the one keyword (to correct a mistake) and synchronize again. Wow. Now you have two keywords. The corrected and the old one. Delete one keyword and synchronize: Nothing happens. Had reported it once. They fixed it but with a certain release of LR5 it was there again.

    Healing brush is soooo slow (i.e. delay), I haven’t had this issue never before (graphics acceleration is set!).
    Can’t see where noise reduction should work better than in LR5 neither. Even no new process version. If I compare the quality between Capture-NX-D and LR there is still something left to do for Adobe!

    I find it a really disapointing release which I guess only aims on showing also up as CC.

      The face recognition is huge. As someone who takes a lot of pictures with people in them this will save me hours and hours of time. There are quite a few things you are missing in your description of the new features. The new slideshow stuff and HDR come to mind. Also on the Windows side if you have a Surface (I assume other Windows tablets too) if you detach the keyboard you get a new interface that is similar to Lightroom for iPad.

      Performance is very much specific system related. Some people will see faster results and others won’t notice it as much.

      To me LR6 is more laggy than LR5. I’m getting a lot of quick screen blanking/flickering when I use \ to view before/after in Develop. Same thing with going to 1:1 preview in Loupe. The sliders are now very jumpy. I saw this with exposure, shadow, highlight, etc.

      I gave the Faces a test go and it’s not any better than what I’ve given up on in the past. Lots of misidentification – my young daughter isn’t a Cristian Bale action figure! Tagging is still very manual in that I have to click the check mark in the suggested matches one by one even though I’m seeing many of the same person in the grid view. Let me select multiple with drag, shift click or cmd click then confirm them all at once.

        I recognize the same with flickering images when in the develop module and click another image in the film stripe. I also remember that this has been an issue in a former release (3 or 4?) of LR.

        The other problem I now have that the fan(s) in my MacBook Pro retina start blowing shortly after I start LR and begin to edit images. And they don’t stop.

        When exporting images they also removed the status line where you could see which image is just exported. It just gives a general info.

        To me LR6 is just crap.

    Thanks to you, RC, Mia and Pete for the resource center and for the webinars today. Exciting stuff. The HDR and panos rock! The transition fro, Lr 5.7 to CC was uber easy. Will start looking at the sessions lined up in kelbyone for more details.
