  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Are you using the cloud-based Lightroom apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Apple TV and Web? Then you'll love my new book, Adobe Lightroom - Edit Like a Pro!

    You'll learn how to use the Lightroom cloud ecosystem to organize, edit and share your photos. You'll also come to understand the thought processes used by professional photographers when they're editing their own photos, so you can transform your photos quickly and easily. And better still, the eBooks are updated for every release, so it's always up to date.

How to Save photo?

I always go to 'File' & Save the photo. Now it seems that option is gone. I have tried exporting until the air is blue but I just can't do it. Is it possible to get the save to option back or has the latest update taken it away. I used to adjust my photo in Lightroom & save it, then I would make a minor adjustment & save that one as well, then later I would compare the two, or three adjustments I had made, but as I say I just can't do that now.

Save has just been renamed Export and gained a few extra options. Which bit are you getting stuck on?

Although you might be slightly misunderstanding the intended workflow for Lightroom, you can create the copies within Lightroom and compare them in there without having to export to pick your favorite.
