The Lightroom cloud ecosystem has been updated today, with updates for Windows & Mac (5.5) and iOS & Android (7.5). (Lightroom Classic has also been updated.) While there are only small feature enhancements this time, there are new cameras and Bug Fixes.
You can now long press on a video to show the Before/After view, just like you can with a photo. It just shows the Before view without your edits, excluding any trimming.
The Rotate and Flip buttons at the bottom of the Trim view are now active too.
Updated User Interface (Android)
The user interface has been updated for larger Android devices (e.g. tablets/foldables), so it looks more like the phone interface. I haven’t seen this myself yet, as I don’t own an Android tablet… feel free to send me a screenshot if you do!
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.

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: Grid overlay in Geometry / Rotate, Horizontal and Vertical no longer visible
- Desktop: Message: Some photos were not added. Unable to copy file.
- Desktop: Filmstrip not shown and icon greyed out in Compare view
- Desktop: Exporting out of the expected order when using the context menu (Right Click)
- Desktop: Shortcut does not rate 5 stars (Norwegian)
- Web: Lr Downloader fails on video files greater than 1.09GB
- Mobile iOS: Bring back Move to in Album Organize menu
- Mobile Android: ‘Share To’ Not Showing Other Photo Apps

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. So, if you don’t see this immediately, it may be a day or two before you can download it. 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).
Is the book updated?
These updates don’t notably affect the current eBooks for Adobe Lightroom – Edit Like a Pro (other than crossing out the line that says rotate/flip isn’t on iOS yet) so the June 2022 eBooks are still current.
