  • 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 6 questions. All the information you need is in Adobe Lightroom 6 - 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. When you upgrade to subscription, there's also a Lightroom Classic version available.

I should re-word - underexposed shadows.
It has to be a bit more than that. Something has to skew the colors in the under-exposed shadows to pink/purple. I had some at quite high ISO (circa 20k) in blacks, and found no difference. I saw other people with similar shots even at lower ISO and it went from an awful magenta-purple to blank, a hugh improvement.

On the good side and worth saying, the V5 does not seem to ever do any harm; I tried a lot of shots and experimented going back and forth and for me personally it did not much of anything, but never did it do any harm. Since sometimes it may help, it seems a very positive development (pun intended).

Yes. I got same feedback elsewhere. At least we know there was an improvement and it will be there when the conditions are right.

I have had another look at LR6's purple at high ISO and can see that the cause (in the newest image I have) is linked to lens corrections. LR is lifting the edge exposure (fixing vignetting) far too much, causing problems. To eliminate it completely, I have to drop the correction to zero. If I go to white balance and maximise the purple tint shift, this shows how much the edges of the images are much brighter than the middle. Odd. If I get time I'll explore further. Images exposed at ordinary daylight exposures need the vignetting fixed (I guess I have assumed this), this image is at ISO25,000 and doesn't. Maybe I shouldn't trust Adobe's lens profile?

It might be a bug in the profiles. I'm getting it with zoom lenses on one body. The same lenses on different bodies don't have the same problems. I hadn't noticed that link before. Interesting. So far as I can tell, it is linked to the ISO. At lower ISOs, the corrections are good. Stranger and stranger.
