The newest Mac operating system, macOS 10.14 Mojave, went live yesterday. The big question is, does Lightroom work?
The good news is Lightroom Classic 7.5, Lightroom CC 1.5 and Lightroom 6.14 (and as-yet-unreleased later versions) do work on Mojave, with no known issues at this time.
Older Lightroom versions are not supported, and will not be updated. They haven’t been extensively tested on the new Mojave operating system, but many people reported that they crashed regularly on High Sierra, so that is likely to continue.
New issues being reported:
- Lightroom crashes when switching between Mojave’s Light & Dark modes (so just don’t do it while Lightroom’s open)
- Lightroom Classic 8.0 and CC 2.0 are resulting in some performance issue reports that appear to be limited to Mac Pros.
Other Adobe Applications
There are some known issues with the current shipping version of Photoshop CC 2018, however there are also workarounds.
The latest driver is reported to work, but you have to tweak a security setting. The instructions are on Wacom’s site.
As always, it’s still sensible to wait for real-world feedback before upgrading mission-critical computers. It’s likely that additional issues will be discovered when a larger number of people are using Mojave. If any significant Lightroom issues are reported, I will update this post.
