Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Much to my irritation I noticed that the catalog backup location got changed from my previously chosen folder on a network drive to the default location, i.e. in the same folder as the catalog itself. It seems likely that this occured in the update from 8.2 to 8.3. Has anyone else noticed this or was this just a quirk?
Since in only recently started being more vigilant about catalog backup being on an external drive (bad me...) I'm not sure if this is something I'll now need to check after every update.

Ah, I understand - although it's a mapped network drive and should be always connected, I know only too well the vagrancies of Windows and network drives...

Thanks!
