• Adobe Releases Lightroom Update, Announces Adobe Camera Raw 8.7 and Black Friday Deals

    Adobe recently released an update for Lightroom which includes a new tool for importing photos from Apple’s iPhoto or Aperture, both of which will be discontinued in favor of a unified OS X Photos app in 2015. Along with the importer tool, Lightroom 5.7 adds the ability to view comments and feedback from shared collections on Lightroom web.

    Adobe also ended up announcing Adobe Camera Raw 8.7, which brings enhancements to batch processing speed when working with the “Save” button and converting images to DNG using DNG Converter. In addition, ACR will now also support HiDPI displays for Windows, an option available under the “Experimental Features” menu. A total of 24 new cameras have been added to ACR’s list of supported RAW file formats including the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Nikon D750 and Sony II.CE-5100 among many others.

    Adobe Camera Raw 8.7 also fixes a few bugs discovered in the previous release including a bug that caused the app to crash when rapidly applying the Spot Removal tool. Another bug prevents the Filter Brush cursor from displaying in certain circumstances. Last but not least, Camera Matching color profiles have been fixed for the Nikon D810 as well.

    Like many updates, Lightroom 5.7 is a free update for existing Lightroom 5 users while Camera Raw 8.7 is free for Photoshop CC and Photoshop CS6 customers. New customers are able to download Lightroom as a 30-day free trial or as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud subscriptions that start at $9.99 per month for the Creative Cloud Photography Plan which comes with Photoshop, Lightroom mobile and more.

    Furthermore, Adobe is running a Black Friday promotion for Creative Cloud Complete, which includes various apps along with 20 GB of cloud storage for $39.99 per month or $15.99 per month for students and teachers. This promotional period ends on November 28 so if you plan on taking advantage of the offer, you better do so relatively soon.
