The Lightroom cloud ecosystem has been updated today, with updates for Windows & Mac (5.3) and iOS & Android (7.3). (Lightroom Classic has also been updated.) For the Cloud apps, there are no new features in this release, but numerous bug fixes and some new camera support.
When a new camera is released, standardized formats such as JPEG, TIFF and DNG are supported immediately. Proprietary raw file formats are not standardized, so they must be individually added in a Lightroom release. Most cameras are supported within 2-3 months of their release. Raw file format support has been added in this release for:
- Canon EOS R5 C
- Panasonic DC-GH6
- Apple iPhone SE (3rd generation)
- Apple iPad Air (5th generation)

Many compact and mirrorless cameras have built-in lens profiles, but other cameras use lens profiles to correct for lens defects such as barrel/pincushion distortion and vignetting. New profiles are added with each Lightroom release. Click here for the full list of available Adobe Lens Profiles.
As always, the engineers have been working hard to fix bugs. Adobe only publishes the ones that were reported by users:
- Desktop – Arrow Key Navigation fails in Add Photos
- Desktop – Windows cache crash
- Desktop – Mac Crash on launch
- Desktop – Import ‘Some photos were not added’
- Mobile – Edited unexpectedly shows all photos as edited

To update, go to Help menu > Updates or click the Update button in the CC app. The update servers take a while to push the updates around the world, to avoid overloading the servers. You can also open the Creative Cloud app, click Update on the left, then click the … icon (top right) and Check for Updates to give it a nudge. To update on mobile, visit the App Store (iOS) / Play Store (Android).
