Adobe released small updates to Lightroom Desktop and Lightroom Mobile today with bug fixes and new camera support.

Lightroom Desktop: Lightroom 6.10.1 and CC 2015.10.1

This is a small update with bug fixes, one new lens profile and support for Panasonic and Sony new cameras. To update, go to Help>Update in Lightroom or the Apps tab in your Creative Cloud app. If you don’t see this update, you can download the update file directly here (Mac Windows) and then double-click on the file to run the installation wizard.

Bug fixes:

  • Inaccurate warning message with Edit in Photoshop command that stated that ACR 9.10 was required, even if you had already downloaded and installed ACR 9.10.
  • Color cast on images from some Fujifilm X series cameras shot in CH/CL modes.
  • Images taken on the Fujifilm GFX 50s with top 3 extended ISOs appeared over-exposed.
  • Some images converted to DNG from the Hasselblad H6 contained a color cast.
  • Hasselblad X1D images losing highlight details at high ISOs.

New cameras now supported:

  • Panasonic LUMIX DC-ZS70 (DC-TZ90, DC-TZ91, DC-TZ92, DC-TZ93)
  • Sony A9 (ILCE-9)

New lens profile:

  • Sony FE – Zeiss Batis 2.8/135

Known issue:

  • Adobe reports that they are aware that Windows customers using an AMD graphics card using driver Version 17.4.4 (released 4/23/2017) are unable to use the Develop module with GPU acceleration enabled (Preferences>Performance). For now, either disable GPU acceleration or roll back to an earlier driver version, per this Adobe technical note.

  1. Quick on the draw as usual Laura. Thanks for the heads up

  2. Thanks Laura
    I ran into the AMD graphics card issue after the last update and had to turn off the GPU acceleration. I haven’t seen a tremendous difference in performance.

  3. I have not been able to update for 2 weeks now.

  4. You continue to be the go-to source of the latest on LR.
    Looking forward to the next webinar too.

    Laura, I know Adobe is secretive about their plans, but what is your sense of when / if LR7 would come out? I’m a stand alone user, not cc. If my calculations are correct, this is the longest period between full updates, as LR6 came out over 2 years ago, am I right?

    Thanks for your help. Joe

    • Hi Joe, it has been quite a while. Unfortunately those who know when LR 7 will come out can’t say, and those who are saying are either violating their NDA or are guessing. That said, I don’t know at this point. It’s not clear whether there will be a standalone Lightroom 7, or whether Adobe will go to subscription-only, as they did with Photoshop.

      • Laura, I don’t want to pay Adobe a subscription fee for a program I don’t use (Photoshop). Do you believe that Adobe may come out with a subscription-based Lightroom-only service?

  5. Thank you Laura, for keeping everyone up to date with the latest Lightroom information.

  6. I was watching BHPhoto’s Livestream on the Sony ILCE-9 last night and one of the panelists said she is using One to read her A9 files at the moment… then said, “I am sure that will be fixed soon!” And here it is! As always… Thank you Laura!

  7. Thanks Laura, that ACR notification has been bugging me for a while now, I shall be very happy to have it gone.

  8. Really appreciate these timely updates! Many thanks, Laura!

  9. I was able to update to 6.10.1 on my Android phone but on my Windows 10 computer Creative Cloud would not update my Lightroom 6.10. When I did a search on Creative Cloud for the update it cannot find 6.10.1. What gives?

  10. As a Creative Cloud subscriber, I haven’t been able to download the update either via your blog link for MAC or through my account. I use my password to get into my account etc without problems but when I try to update it asks for the password again and then rejects it. I have had this problem with earlier updates and have had to update via telephone support. Very irritating.

  11. Hi. What do you think of Macphun plugins please ? Do they do anything which Lightroom can’t do on its own ? Can they cause any problems ? Thanks

    • I’m afraid I don’t know anything about them, John. It’s a good idea before installing plugins to back up your Lightroom catalog.

  12. I was using Lightroom on my windows computer but have now switched to a Mac computer. Can I convert anything from the windows Lightroom catalog to the Mac Lightroom version?

    Sorry this question doesn’t fit this topic but I didn’t know where else to ask. Thank you in advance!

  13. Where is the link for the update?

  14. Hi Laura – I took your LR Bootcamp a couple of years ago. Recently downloaded LR 2015.10.1 and the import times are horrendously slow. Using an iMac (late 2013) with OS Yosemite (up to date) with 32 GB of memory and a 3.5GHz Intel Core i7. I’ve closed the program, rebooted the computer….but it takes hours to import 200 or so shots (Canon 5D MKIV so about 20 MB a piece). Not sure what to do at this point.

    • Hi Christy, I’m afraid that I don’t have expertise in resolving these types of issues. If uninstalling and reinstalling doesn’t help, then I’d recommend posting in the Adobe Lightroom forum or contacting Adobe for help.
