If you run into serious bugs in the latest Lightroom update, you can roll back to a previous dot release. Here’s the step-by-step:
- Uninstall Lightroom. On Windows, you can do this from the Add/Remove Programs screen. On Mac, navigate to Applications > Adobe Lightroom > Uninstall Adobe Lightroom.
- Download and install the 2015.0 / 6.0 release from https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/lightroom-downloads.html
- Download and install the one-before-last dot release, also linked on that page.
If you receive a message that says “This update is not applicable to you”, you’ve missed step 2. The .0 release must be installed before attempting to install the patch. (You don’t have to open to .0 version between steps 1 and 2, so you’ll skip any bugs that were found in that original release.)
If you’re a CC subscriber, remember not to click the Update button in the CC app otherwise you’ll be updated to the latest version again.
