Lightroom 5.4 Released – Lightroom mobile too!

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

After what might have seemed an odd period of silence from the posting of Camera Raw to Labs to the launch of Lightroom, here is Lightroom 5.4! And the reason for the delay is the launch of Lightroom mobile.

First demonstrated by Tom Hogarty back in September last year and now launched, Lightroom mobile dips a toe into the world of image editing on an iPad. It really is the beginning of a process, so isn’t full of features, but just offers a small feature set to get you started.

So Lightroom 5.4 is essentially a release to support Lightroom mobile, but includes the usual set of camera updates, profiles and bug fixes.

Adobe Camera Raw 8.4 is also released. It contains new features including new preview controls, red eye correction for pets and updates to Local Corrections. Camera Raw 8.4 and DNG Converter 8.4 will not work on Windows XP, Windows Vista or Mac OSX 10.6

Lightroom Mobile

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

As was perhaps obvious in hindsight, Smart Previews had to be for something…and that something is Lightroom Mobile.

Lightroom Mobile is an under development app for the iPad which will allow seamless editing and management of your images on your tablet and back to your desktop.

Laura Shoe has a writeup from Photoshop World about the new app which was demonstrated by Tom Hogarty last week

Lightroom 4 Released with new Pricing

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

After a very short time as a Public Beta, Lightroom 4 has been fully released to the public. Adobe have also lowered the price to $149 (£103.88, €130,36) and upgrades are $79 (£59.09, €74,15). Upgrades can be from any version.

Since the Public Beta was released, there have been some changes, not a huge list as in the past, but that is reflected in the short time between Public Beta and this release.

  • Reverse geocoding now available in the Map Module
  • Revamped and improved auto tone in Develop based on new controls
  • Increased range of local white balance controls (temperature and tint)
  • Updated Develop presets plus added new presets for video
  • Maximum Blurb book size is now 240 pages
  • Over 800 bugs found and fixed!

There are the usual crop of new Cameras and Lenses supported, unfortunately there will be a bit of a wait for the just released Canon 5D Mk III for Lightroom users, but ACR and DNG users do have support in the Release Candidates mentioned below:

  • Canon EOS 1D X
  • Canon PowerShot G1 X
  • Canon PowerShot S100V
  • Fuji FinePix F505EXR
  • Fuji FinePix F605EXR
  • Fuji FinePix HS30EXR
  • Fuji FinePix HS33EXR
  • Fuji FinePix X-S1
  • Nikon D4
  • Nikon D800
  • Nikon D800E

A further set of lenses from Tokina, Leica, Nikon, Sigma and Tamron are now supported (the full list is available on Tom Hogarty’s Lightroom Journal.)

Also released are Adobe Camera Raw 6.7 RC and DNG Converter 6.7 RC which help maintain compatibility with Photoshop CS 5. These are available on Adobe Labs and are not final, but they have been extensively tested. As mentioned they contain support for the Canon 5D Mk III. So the way to get Lightroom support is to convert your 5D Mk III files to DNG using the DNG Converter, then import them into Lightroom.
