Adobe has launched a major update to the entirely Lightroom CC ecosystem today, releasing major updates for Lightroom CC on Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and the web, in addition to a few updates for Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Camera Raw. If you're a Creative Cloud subscriber, you'll want to update ASAP.
Here's what Adobe has in store for you with this latest Lightroom update.
Tone Curve and Split Toning
Two of the most useful and conspicuously absent features in Lightroom CC 1.0 were the Tone Curve and Split Toning. Well, there's no longer any reason to hop back into Lightroom Classic CC to take advantage of these: they're coming to Lightroom CC.
You'll find the Tone Curve next to the Auto button in the Light panel, where you can choose between Parametric Curve or Point Curve modes, as well as the Red, Green, and Blue channels.
Split Toning lives in the Effects panel, where you can ... well ... split tone.
Adobe Sensei Auto Mode
Another major feature improvement coming with the December update is Auto mode, which is now much more intelligent thanks to Adobe Sensei artificial intelligence platform. From Adobe's blog post about the update:
Using an advanced neural network powered by Adobe Sensei, our artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning platform, the new Auto Settings creates a better photo by analyzing your photo and comparing to tens of thousands of professionally edited photos to create a beautiful, pleasing image.
This new Auto mode is launching ecosystem wide—you'll find it in Lightroom CC, Lightroom CC for iOS, Lightroom CC for Android, Lightroom CC on the web, Lightroom Classic, and Adobe Camera Raw (ACR).
The three updates above are the most impactful, but the December update comes with a bit more to enjoy.
- Lightroom CC now lets you change the capture time of an image or batch of images ("providing relief for those times that you forgot to change your camera’s time or time zone settings.").
- Lightroom CC for Android received several bug fixes and the ability to launch directly into popular modes from the home screen by pressing and holding the app icon.
- Lightroom CC for iOS now lets you create and customize a text based watermark for your images on export, and HDR capture has been improved.
- Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Camera RAW are seeing some 'refinements' to the Color Range Masking tool.
- And, finally, Adobe has added support for new cameras and lenses, including the Sony a7R III, Leica CL, iPhone X, and Google Pixel 2 among others.
You can read more about the December update on Adobe's blog. CC subscribers just have to update their copy to the latest version to take advantage of all the features described above.
