How and When to Update

When to Update Lightroom Desktop (if Lightroom didn’t auto-update):

I don’t expect any issues with Lightroom 3.3 and updates of this app usually go smoothly, but if you’re not in a hurry to get the new features, it can’t hurt to wait a week or so to make sure that others aren’t experiencing serious bugs with it.

If I hear of serious issues with this release I will post them here in this section – please check here rather than emailing me.

How to Update the Lightroom Desktop App

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 3.3. Otherwise to update to 3.3, 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.)

How to Update Lightroom Mobile

Find the Lightroom app in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and tap on Update.
