What's New in Lightroom Classic 10.3 in June 2021Adobe has released Lightroom Classic 10.3. This update contains a few new features, including Super Resolution for increasing the dimensions of your images, native M1 support for Macs, performance improvements and more. It also contains support for new cameras, new lens profiles and bug fixes. Read more about these new features below.

Updates are also out for the cloud-based Lightroom Desktop and for Lightroom Mobile – read about these in my separate blog post.

When and How to Update

When to Update:

I don’t have any indication that things won’t go smoothly with these small updates. That said, if you’re not urgently in need of the latest bug fixes or features, it couldn’t hurt to wait a week or two to see if others experience issues, unless you need to update urgently to hopefully resolve bugs introduced in the last release(s). If you install the update and then encounter bugs that you can’t live with, you can use the Creative Cloud app to revert to the previous version.

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

That said, I don’t plan to report on all bugs, so click here to check for bug reports and to report bugs or issues that you encounter.

Adobe Creative Cloud LogoIf you had previously chosen to auto-update, open Lightroom Classic and go to Help>System Info to verify that you are now using 10.3. 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 10.3 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 10. 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:
