  • 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.

Tethering with Lightroom CC

I have had lightroom 5 for years tethering on my MacBook and then the update to Sierra destroyed all tethering capabilities it appears. So I have decided to trial Lightroom CC for my next shoot. However "start tethering" does not come up. I am used to lightroom continually crashing but the not tethering issue really affects my working day. So is " start tethering" not appearing because I still have my lightroom 5 on my MacBook or in fact is tethering still a massive issue with canon, apple and adobe. My camera is a Canon 5D mark 11 which I think is on the list for approved cameras. Its always worked perfectly with lightroom 5 and El capitan or whatever was before that. Updates seems to be more of a hindrance than a help. I am happy to subscribe to the full Lightroom CC version BUT only if tethering is guaranteed.
