Whats new in the latest updates to Lightroom and Photoshop?

I have just come back from a trip to find updates to Lightroom and Photoshop. Glad I checked before I satrted an epic image import, which I am just about to do.

This is what Adobe says about the latest update, taken directly from the Adobe website

(no point me writing/ paraphrasing something when they have done such a good job as ever!).

"The 2015 releases of Lightroom roll out several new features and enhancements that enrich your digital imaging experience. Read on for a quick introduction to these features and links to resources offering more information. "

And these are the

"Fixed customer issues"

Issues fixed in this release of Lightroom

  • Reduced the occurence of Lightroom panels intermittently appearing black on macOS. See this tech note for more details.
  • Lightroom displaying captured time as GMT instead of local lime for videos shot and imported from Apple iPhone 6
  • Can't access Auto Import Settings from the File menu
  • Lightroom Colour presets missing after update
  • Lightroom Slideshow Audio Balance Slider doesn't completely mute
  • Incorrect filename on Export issue
  • Erratic cursor movements when working on the point tone curve
  • Lightroom Tone Curve points do not move correctly with Wacom stylus
  • Tone Curve freezes after several drags
  • Lightroom crash when disconnecting device in the Import dialog.
  • Thumbnails not displaying for Live photo videos
  • Lightroom displaying incorrect dialog message when deleting image from an unsynced collection

Just thought you would like to know. I always apply updates as soon as Adobe roll them out.

I will have a look at the Photoshop updates and write about them shortly.
