Adobe Lightroom Update Adds New Mode, Cameras

While Adobe’s Creative Suite made a large announcement a few weeks ago, bringing 2017 versions of most of the company’s image editing, video and design tools, Adobe Lightroom didn’t receive an update.

This week Adobe updated Lightroom to Lightroom CC 2015.8, bringing with it a new Reference View. A component of the Develop module, Reference View allows photographers to view images side-by-side for consistent exposure and color edits.

Other small improvements include performance enhancements and fit/fill improvements. The fit/fill ones enable users to zoom to fit and zoom to fill, especially when using ultra-high-res monitors.

The supported list of cameras has grown, as well, as Lightroom (and also Adobe Camera RAW) now handles files from some of the most recently released cameras. The full list of supported cameras is available here and is also below.

Subscribers to Creative Cloud can download the update to Adobe Lightroom now from the Creative Cloud app on Mac or Windows.
