The Lightroom cloud ecosystem has been updated today, with updates for Windows & Mac (6.2) and iOS & Android (8.2). (Lightroom Classic has also been updated.) There are some small enhancements, a new camera and various bug fixes.
New confirmed bugs in February release…
- Will be added here if/when they are confirmed.
No changes this release.
• [Subscribers only] Video enhancements: You can now change the hue, saturation, and luminosity for specific colors in your videos using the color mix panel.
• [Subscribers only] Healing: The healing brush no longer forces users into refine mode nor does it require tapping “done” between each stroke. This makes applying healing to multiple areas quicker.
• With this release, iOS 14 and older is no longer supported.
Adaptive presets that use People Masks are now available on mobile.

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 R8
- Canon EOS R50
- Panasonic LUMIX DC-S5M2
- Samsung Galaxy S23 Front Camera
- Samsung Galaxy S23 Rear Telephoto Camera
- Samsung Galaxy S23 Rear Ultrawide Camera

New Lens Profiles
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:
- [iOS]: Shortcut Import can cause 19700902 if run without starting App.
- [iOS]: Back button on Loupe lost after Masking Brush size change when using Apple pencil.

How do I update?
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).
Is the book updated?
The eBooks for Adobe Lightroom – Edit Like a Pro are already updated for these changes, and can be downloaded immediately after purchasing. If you already have a current Lightroom Cloud Premium Membership, the updated eBooks are available for download in your Members Area.

I swear when I was updating my desktop version today the short blurb about new features mentioned improvements to the keywordingg workflow.
