How and When to Update

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

I don’t expect any issues with Lightroom 4.3 and updates of this app usually go smoothly, but as usual, 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 4.3. Otherwise to update to 4.3, 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.)

Operating System Requirements for 4.x

  • Windows 10 versions 1903 and later
  • MacOS Mojave, Catalina (and Big Sur when it comes out later this year).

If your operating system is not up-to-date enough, you will not see the option to update Lightroom in your Creative Cloud app.

How to Update Lightroom Mobile

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

Collaborative Editing

Throughout the Lightroom ecosystem (Desktop, Mobile and Web) invite others to not only view, flag and comment on your images, but now also edit your images! (This is not available to Lightroom Mobile users who do not have a subscription.)

Right-click on the album or image you wish to share, choose Share & Invite, enter an email address, click on the Edit icon, and invite.

Once the user receives the email, goes to the album/image and logs in with an Adobe account, they can edit.

Other users’ edits will show in your Lightroom as auto-created versions:

Lightroom Collaborative Editing: Versions

The “Laura Shoe” version shows the editing state when second user “Laura Shoe” finished editing the image.

Shared albums now have symbols for easy identification – those you share with others have a globe symbol, and those that are shared by you have symbols indicating what level of privileges you have (+ to add images, Edit icon to edit):
