What's New in Lightroom Classic 9.1Adobe released Lightroom Classic 9.1 last night. This is a small update, with support for new cameras, new lens profiles and bug fixes (including for some macOS Catalina related bugs). There are no new features.

Updates for Lightroom (CC) Desktop, iOS and Android were also released, with new features – see my Cloud-Based Lightroom Desktop and Mobile article for details.

How and When to Update

Creative Cloud Photography Program PricingHow to Update:

If you are updating from Lightroom Classic 9.0:

If you had previously chosen to auto-update, open Lightroom Classic and go to Help>System Info to verify that you are now using 9.1. If not, or if you hadn’t chosen to auto-update, go to Help>Update, and the Creative Cloud app will open. Click on Update next to Lightroom Classic. If the update is not listed in the CC app then go to Help>Check for Updates. If it’s still not there, click on the three dots next to Lightroom Classic, choose Other Versions, and see if 9.1 is listed there.  Otherwise if it’s the day of release, then try later.

This update process is covered in my video tutorial below:

If you are updating from Lightroom Classic 8.something or any prior version (Lightroom 6, etc.):

Your operating system must support the update to Classic 9. When updating, Lightroom Classic will upgrade your catalog, you’ll need to get your dock/taskbar icons squared away and clean up old files. I recommend watching my video tutorial below on this:

When to Update:

I don’t have any indication that things won’t go smoothly with this update; that said, it can’t hurt to wait a week to see if others experience issues, unless you need the update urgently. If I hear of serious issues with this release I will post them here in this section – please check here rather than emailing me.
