In the keynote presentation for Adobe’s fall MAX conference, Adobe presented “a glimpse of the future of photography” in the form of a brief sneak peek of a new photography application under development, code-named “Project Nimbus”. The application has a modernized interface that is consistent with the Lightroom mobile and Lightroom web interfaces, with the goal being a seamless experience as one moves from desktop to mobile to web. What we know from the sneak peek presented by Group Product Manager Brian Hughes: Nimbus is cloud-based (referred to as “cloud-native”) – all of your photos and edits reside in the cloud. This makes them available automatically to Lightroom mobile and web without the need to specify what you want to sync. Nimbus can […more]
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. It’s rarely a bad idea to hold off on major updates like this, particularly if you use Lightroom professionally, until more people kick the […more]
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.) To update to Lightroom mobile 2.5, visit the App store, find LrM under Updates, and click on the Update button. For raw capture, your device operating system must be updated to iOS10, which is due to be released later today. To check for the update on your mobile device go to […more]
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]
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. Read the Adobe announcement, or more how-to from Victoria Bampton, the Lightroom Queen.
