Adobe released Lightroom 6.12 and CC 2015.12 tonight. This is a free update for Lightroom 6 and CC customers. It includes support for new cameras, new lens profiles, and several bug fixes, some for bugs that have been outstanding for a long time, and one for a serious issue (that I wasn’t aware of) where Lightroom would delete files. Because of the bug fixes, I recommend that everyone install this update – though some users might choose to wait a bit to make sure there aren’t widespread serious issues with the update. (If I hear of a widespread serious issue, I’ll update this post. If you wish to see what people are reporting and report issues of your own,  here’s the Adobe page where you can report and monitor Lightroom problems.

To install the update, go to Help>Updates in Lightroom, or in your Creative Cloud app click on Update next to Lightroom on the Apps tab. If you find that the update is not yet available to you through  these methods, you can download the update file directly and then click on it to run the update. Here are the files: Mac  Windows.

Did I Miss 6.11 and CC 2015.11?

There was no 6.11 or CC 2015.11. Lightroom release numbers coincide with Camera Raw release numbers, and Camera Raw is on version 9. (Camera Raw is Photoshop’s raw processor and Lightroom uses it under the hood.) Because of the terrorist attack, Adobe felt that using 9.11 was not appropriate, so both Lightroom and Camera Raw have skipped 11.


Support Added for New Cameras
  • Canon EOS 6D Mark II
  • Canon EOS 200D (Canon EOS Rebel SL2, Canon EOS Kiss X9 EU)
  • Leica TL2 • Nikon D7500
  • Olympus Tough TG-5
Bug Fixes




  • PC users could not add multiple lines of text in identity plates in Slideshow and Print. Now you can use Ctl-Enter to advance to a new line. (Mac users could already do this with Opt-Enter.) PC users can now paste in multi-line  text  from Word or other text editors, just as Mac users can – this is GREAT news! (However, in tests I did tonight, Lightroom didn’t maintain the centering of two lines of text that I pasted in from Word – Lightroom on Macs would maintain this. That said, test it yourself if you’re interested in this.)
