Lightroom CC / 6.1 updates

Adobe just released a major update to its Lightroom CC and 6 and iOS applications.

The updates provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.

For the full set of new features, you need to have the CC subscription version of Lightroom, but bug fixes, tethered capture, new camera and lens support updates are available in both Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC.

From the release notes:

New features in Lightroom CC on the desktop

  • Dehaze
    • Many outdoor scenes have some amount of haze due to atmospheric conditions. Dehaze is a new feature for removing/adding haze and fog from pictures.
    • The user can control how much haze to remove by adjusting a new slider in the Effects panel in the Dehaze section. This feature can also be used in the other direction to increase the amount of haze.
    • Recommended Workflow – Adjust the white balance of the image before applying the Dehaze control.
  • Local White and Black Adjustment Sliders
    • Available with all 3 local adjustment tools:  Gradient Filter, Radial Filter and Local adjustment brush
    • Useful for fine-tuning tonality near the brightest and darkest parts of the picture. For instance, they can be used to increase the contrast of highlights.
    • Recommended Workflow – Make your global adjustments first and then use the local adjustments to fine tune. Use the clip warning indicator to help avoid clipping highlights and shadows.

  • Video support:  You can now import, and sync your iPhone and iPad created videos from Lightroom on iOS to the web and desktop.
