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.

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.

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.
