What's New in April 2020 Lightroom UpdatesAdobe released updates for all Lightroom apps last night – Lightroom Classic 9.2.1, cloud-based Lightroom desktop 3.2.1 and Lightroom Mobile 5.2.1. These small updates provide support for new cameras, new lens profiles and bug fixes – there are no new features.

How to Update

If you had previously chosen to auto-update, open Lightroom Classic and go to Help>System Info to verify that you are now using 9.2.1. 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 9.2 is listed there. Otherwise if it’s the day of release, then try later.

This update process is covered in my video tutorial below:

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:

If you previously were prompted to agree to auto-update Lightroom and if you agreed, then when you open Lightroom for the first time after the update is available, go to Help>System Info to verify that you are now using version 3.2. Otherwise to update to 3.2, go to Help>Updates, and in the Creative Cloud app, on the Updates tab click on Update next to Lightroom (cloud-based photo service; not Lightroom Classic or Lightroom CC 2015.)

The Creative Cloud app has been redesigned – click on Updates on the left or on Photography to isolate these apps and find Lightroom Desktop (the cloud-based photo service).

In the iOS app store or the Google Play (Android) store, find the Lightroom app and tap on Update.

When to Update

I don’t have any indication that things won’t go smoothly with these small updates; that said, it can’t hurt to wait a week to see if others experience issues, unless you need the update urgently.(If you do update Lightroom Classic or the Cloud-Based Lightroom desktop app and then discover an issue serious enough that you want to revert to the last version, you can do so in the Creative Cloud app – click on the dropdown next to Open, choose Other Versions, then install Classic 9.2 or cloud-based 3.2.)
