You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. 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.

It has! Blog posts are now live. (The press embargo is always later than the downloads going live.)

This changes a lot of things. I run Detail in the Detail panel quite high however you lose halo suppression when you go over 50. Just experimenting with setting that back to the factory default of 25. Looks pretty good.

I downloaded the new Classic version, and ran it on a portrait I took on Mother's day.
I used the texture with the brush.
I have to say - I really liked the result on older skin. Great work, Adobe.

Great. I'll have to do this with selfies. These days I scare myself when I Iook at mine.

LOL. Probably one main reason why I don't use my phone a lot as a camera, and I never take selfies. There will have to be some really great software advances in artificial intelligence for post processing for me to take a selfie.

I also read on another forum Contrast (when using Auto) seems to have been corrected as well. It is not dropping down to -18 anymore and moving to the positive value. Adobe did say they were going to fix that. I've only done a few tests but that is what I'm seeing now. Gotta revise my workflow.

Fairly shortly after the new Auto was introduced I noticed that Auto underexposed Canon profiles badly. It always exposed this file to around -70. Looks like they fixed that too. Awesome
