months. This update does come with a new version number, but it is an incremental growth over version 7.5 in
keeping with the pattern we’ve seen throughout the year.

New Process Version

The process version is the secret sauce for processing our photos, and this is something that should continue
to evolve and improve. Process Version 5 will be the default for newly imported photos from now on (until it
changes), and it brings improvements to image quality in high ISO raw photos and an improvement to the
rendering of negative Dehaze. I’m not really one to use negative amounts of Dehaze, but comparing the same
amount of Dehaze to a photo using Process Version 4 (top) to the new Process Version 5 (bottom) does show an
improvement in retaining color and contrast for the same slider value.

You can change process versions via the Camera Calibration panel to test it for yourself. Current photos with
older process versions will not be changed by Lightroom. You can change them manually if you wish, but you
do not have to do this. You’d only change the process version of a previously edited photo if you want to
leverage the new features added to the latest process version. I’ll probably only do this in rare cases to old
photos, but I see no problem moving forward with Process Version 5 as the new default.

Single Step HDR Pano

HDR and
panoramas, often just to create higher resolution images of more typical aspect ratios (as opposed to the true
panoramic aspect ratios). If the situation seems to call for it, and I have time, I’ll even shoot for HDR and
panorama at the same time. While the merge to HDR and pano functions made it relatively easy to rst
combine all the brackets into HDR images, and then merge all the HDR images into a pano, it has just gotten so
much easier. Now all you need to do is select all the frames from your HDR pano, then right-click one and go to
Photo Merge > HDR Panorama (or via the Photo > Photo Merge menu).

Classic takes them all into the new HDR Panorama Merge Preview dialog, where you can select a projection,
perform boundary warp, auto crop, auto settings, and stack all the images together. Note, if you need to use
Deghosting you’ll want to do it the old way and merge each HDR bracket individually so you can control the
Deghosting settings (this dialog does not apply any). Clicking merge saves out the nal HDR panorama. This
will save me a lot of disk space by skipping the individual HDR image stage.

New Range Mask Option

then you can Killer Tips
leverage the new option added to Range Mask in the local adjustments (Graduated Filter, Radial Filter, and
Adjustment Brush). The camera in Lightroom CC for iOS gained a new Depth Mode as a tech preview during the
last update, which allows you to create those types of photos right in Lightroom CC. Everything created in my
Lightroom CC app downloads to my Classic catalog automatically. Selecting one of those photos, I can apply a
local adjustment, then choose Depth from the Range Mask drop-down menu.

This will reveal the new options associated with this type of mask. Due to the depth information contained in
this photo, I can now limit the range of the mask based on that information. This provides a whole new level of
control. I’ll have to explore this in a tutorial for another day, but from what I’ve seen so far it is very promising!

Note, you’ll only see the new Depth option when a photo with depth information is being edited.

Improved Tethering Experience

Some much needed attention has been given to the tethering experience for Canon. If you are a Canon shooter
and shoot tethered you should see greater overall stability and an increase in transfer speeds. Adobe has
stated that similar improvements are coming for Nikon in a future release. Here’s a link to all camera’s currently
supported for tethering. The Canon EOS M50 and the Rebel T7 have been added in this release. They’ve also
updated the online user guide for tethering to include new options for Canon shooters.

Lightroom CC 2.0 (Mac/Win)

15/10/2018 October 2018 Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC Release - Lightroom Killer Tips

New things came to Lightroom CC for Mac, Win, iOS, and Android too.

Share Tab
The new Share tab makes it easier to access all of your shared albums, whether you’ve created them here in
Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic, on mobile, or even within lightroom.adobe.com.

The new Connections tool at the top of the Shared tab gives you the ability to create a connection with your
Adobe Portfolio, and easily share albums to it. Adobe promises to continue to develop this feature to add
connections to other online services (such as printing).

People View
In the My Photos section of the left panel is a new People view tab. Leveraging the Adobe Sensei powered
search, imported/synced photos are now analyzed for faces, and photos of the same person are grouped
together to make them easier to nd. At the time of this writing it was still crunching through my photos, so I
look forward to test driving this when it is done.

Improved Search

The search also gained a new autocomplete feature that can suggest various bits of metadata (keywords,
locations, camera, lens, ISO, etc.) based on what you have typed so far.

Color to Local Adjustments

I didn’t even realize this wasn’t already included, but Lightroom CC’s local adjustment tools now have the Color
swatch for hand coloring/tinting your photos as part of the adjustment.

Migrate Apple Photos

If you’ve used Apple’s Photos app, and want a way to migrate your photos out of there and into Lightroom CC,
you now have that functionality. Located under the File menu.

Lightrom CC for iOS and Android

The same People view and search improvements have been added to Lightroom CC for mobile devices as well.
In addition, there are a few new guided tutorials (under Settings). The HDR capture on Android has also been

New camera support and new lens support has also been added across all applications. Adobe Camera Raw is
also being updated to version 11, so keep your eye out for that update as well. There’s a lot to absorb, and
remember that the apps become available on a rolling basis, so if you don’t see it yet, just give it some time.
Updates for mobile can take longer due to App store approval process.

Thanks Rob – nice rundown. It would be great in “Merge to…” if they’d add focus stacking
for the LR Classic platform – I do it as much as I do panos and hdrs…sometimes a lot more
often… save a few steps and startup of PS itself.
