• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • 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.
  • Stop struggling with Lightroom! There's no need to spend hours hunting for the answers to your Lightroom Classic questions. All the information you need is in Adobe Lightroom Classic - The Missing FAQ!

    To help you get started, there's a series of easy tutorials to guide you through a simple workflow. As you grow in confidence, the book switches to a conversational FAQ format, so you can quickly find answers to advanced questions. And better still, the eBooks are updated for every release, so it's always up to date.
  • Just a quick head's up - we'll be moving to a new server on Wednesday 20th November around 2:30PM GMT. There should be very little downtime, but it may take your DNS servers up to 72 hours to update (although you can clear them manually).

I just read LR8 is out

I know the word debacle has been mentioned but I don't know why I was fine with it. The term CC didn't work for me but it only took about ½ to figure out the differences between the both when I decided to check it out. I didn't know all the details but I never had any issues distinguishing between the two. I pretty much knew right away I was not going to install LR CC until I was ready for it. A little more to the name like Phil suggested may have prompted me to look at it sooner.

lol, that is why I said perceived stable... Plus after that debacle last October they had to "appear" like Classic was getting some TLC.

Tim,

The debacle last October was their product naming and messaging. I'm not sure what can top that one. Of course, if Adobe doesn't continue to enhance Classic, then they risk losing subscribers to competitors.

I just wish I could sit in on some of the product strategy meetings at Adobe. Or, else, if I could submit questions to Adobe management, and get complete, clear, and honest answers. When pigs fly, at supersonic speeds.

Phil,

No further point in re-hashing history. I am just glad Adobe seems to have been giving Classic some TLC.
Enough at this point, that I have stopped actively building out an alternative without Adobe.

I don't know about anyone else but I think everything is a little faster. Adobe did something.

Did they do anything to the Detail window or the exporting ? I'm exporting older files updated to process 5 and they seem to look sharper and cleaner. I may just wanting to see that. Hard to tell.

Big high ISO difference between Process Versions 4 and 5. ISO 32,000 and I only changed the version. 1st image is version 4. I didn't do any additional editing with the original.

Yes. Version 5 fixes the purple color on high ISO.

Sometimes you wonder how much of an improvement was really made. Pretty significant for me as I'm not afraid to shoot high ISO. I never tried to fix it and if it noticeably affected my final result I'd use Canon's software. Then again how often do push you 32,000 ISO crops that much. Gives the overall image a richer look. Maybe that was what I seeing in 1600 ISO shots because my guess it may be all relative.
