Adobe updates Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic CC and Camera Raw
Adobe has released its August 2018 update for Adobe Lightroom CC (v1.5), Adobe Lightroom Classic CC (v7.5) and Adobe Camera Raw (v10.5). Across the board, the update brings along bug fixes, new features and support for more cameras and lenses.
First on the docket is Adobe Lightroom CC (v1.5). The stand-out feature of the update is the ability to store albums locally. Now, you can download images from an album onto your computer and edit them offline if you're going to be without internet for a bit. The next time you get internet the images will sync to the files stored in Creative Cloud.
Adobe Lightroom CC (v1.5) also brings the ability to see what albums a particular image belongs to. Windows users now have support for Apple's HEIC image file format as well.
Onto Lightroom Classic CC (v7.5), Adobe has added the ability to upload presets and profiles in bulk, rather than having to do it one-by-one. 'You can import XMP presets and profiles, DCP profiles, and LCP profiles as part of a zip file,' says Adobe in its press release. 'However, .lrtemplate presets can't be imported as part of a zip file.'
Adobe also added two new book types (Blurb Magazine and Blurb Trade Book), as well as a new paper type (Standard Layflat) inside the Book module of Lightroom Classic CC. Lightroom Classic CC (v7.5) for Windows also receives support for Apple's HEIC image file format.
Bug fixes inside Lightroom Classic CC (v7.5) include fixes for various preset issues, exporting problems, metadata errors and performance issues. You can find a full list of squashed bugs on Adobe's announcement page.
The update to Adobe Camera Raw (v10.5) is rather minor, as it only adds support for three new cameras and eight new lenses. Support for these new cameras and lenses has also been added to Adobe Lightroom CC (v1.5) and Lightroom Classic CC (v7.5). Below is a complete list of the new cameras and lenses supported in these updates:
- Parrot Anafi
- Sony RX100 VA (DSC-RX100MSA)
- Sony RX100 VI (DSC-RX100M6)
- Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR
