Lightroom and MacOS Sierra Compatibility Information

MacOS Sierra will be released tomorrow and it has some cool new features such as Siri, so I’m sure many of you will be interested in installing it. Here’s the scoop on compatibility with Lightroom. Note that this is a moving target that I may not be able to keep up with. For the latest, check the Adobe list of known issues. Sierra and Lightroom 6 and CC Serious known issues have been addressed in the Lightroom 6.7/CC 2015.7 update that just went live (blog post to come tomorrow), but keep in mind that it’s possible that additional issues will surface.

Now Shoot in Raw in Lightroom Mobile on Some iPads, iPhones

Adobe has released an update for Lightroom mobile for iPad and iPhone that allows users to shoot DNG raw files with Lightroom mobile’s camera. This is available only for devices with a 12 MP camera –  the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, SE, 7, and 7 Plus; and the 9.7″ iPad Pro. (The 12.9″ iPad Pro only has an 8 MP camera, so raw capture is not available on this device.)

Adobe this week gave Mac users an early heads up that the next major releases of Lightroom and other Creative Cloud desktop apps will only run on OS 10.10 (Yosemite) and later versions.  They gave no indication of when the next major release of Lightroom will come out. If you’re running 10.9 or earlier, you can update now to 10.11 (El Capitan), or wait until after September 20 and update to 10.12 (Sierra) when it’s released.  (Check to see if your computer will run: El Capitan   Sierra at this link.) I don’t recommend updating to Sierra until it has been out for a while, since there are often early issues with Lightroom compatibility. From what I understand, most of the compatibility issues with […more]


For a Limited Time, Watch My “Developing Photos in Lightroom” Webinar Recording

In this recorded webinar I work several photos, showing you many of Lightroom’s editing tools. I also show how to copy your work from one photo to others, how to create and apply presets, and how to set new default develop settings. This recording is from 2014 and I used Lightroom 5 in it, but everything I show is applicable to CC and 6 (and most everything is applicable to Lightroom 4 as well.) Note that in this webinar I briefly mention the Lightroom 5 version of my workshops on video. They are now updated for CC and 6. If you wish to, you may use the webinar15 discount code provided in the webinar. Enter your email address below to […more]


For CC Subscribers, Now Use Lightroom with Apple TV

Furthering Adobe’s goal of allowing you to enjoy your edited photos anywhere, Lightroom for Apple TV was introduced today. With a Creative Cloud subscription and the app from the app store, you’ll be able to play slideshows of your synced collections of photos, stop and zoom to see image detail, navigate to any individual photo with a filmstrip, and share your photos. You’ll need a fourth-generation Apple TV and a Creative Cloud subscription to sign in with. Get the Lightroom app from the Apple TV app store.
