Lightroom Classic 10 Update Released

2020-10-21T23:50:10+00:00October 21st, 2020|Adobe Lightroom Classic|

Lightroom 10 Classic Update Released at Adobe Max

This Lightroom Classic 10 Update has the usual updates for cameras and lenses. But look for the improvements of greater control over zoom and Live View for Canon (Sorry Nikon users – myself included!) There’s also under the hood stuff like faster editing in the Develop module when using brushes and gradients along with a speed bump in the Library when scrolling. Bigger news is the removal of the Split Toning panel. It’s been replaced with a more robust, Color Grading panel with exponentially more functionality to adjust colors.

Is There a Color Cast in Your Raw Capture?

It’s been nearly four years since our last posting on how to correct a color cast. And, although correcting color cast in Lightroom hasn’t changed much over the years, Adobe has done significant, “under the hood” improvements with machine learning. So, it’s time for a refresh and we’re adding our free PDF download, “How to Fix a Color Cast” for reference.

Lightroom 9.2 Bug Fixes

There are nearly 60 new bug fixes in this release. One bug fix that we’ve been waiting for is the “No photos found” displayed in the import dialog when connected to an iPhone. Done! Also, there have been considerable bug fixes for Macs on Catalina. So

Create a 2020 Copyright Preset for Lightroom

Whether it’s friends and family or submitted images to contests and publishers, you don’t need to be a professional to consider embedding a copyright. Take advantage of these protections to their fullest. Use a copyright preset in Lightroom on import to identify you as the creator/owner of your digital images to outside third parties.

Where’s the PDF Lightroom Classic Manual?

2020-05-28T17:00:37+00:00January 14th, 2020|Adobe Lightroom Classic|

So, we looked for a current PDF of the Lightroom Classic Manual and couldn’t find one!

Lightroom (both versions) has an official URL for user manuals. But there hasn’t been a PDF Lightroom Classic Manual download available for quite some time. The good news is, the Lightroom basics haven’t changed all that much. And there is a somewhat recent Lightroom Classic Manual posted on Adobe for download.

We at Lightroom Guy are always keeping our eyes on MacOS issues and we're still holding off on updating to Catalina. It’s not ready for prime time. At least not for us, so we can't recommend updating to Catalina to our clients and readers.

Do Not Update to MacOS Catalina

Apple does this: abandons technology for the next shiny toy. In this case, 32 bit support has been replaced with 64 bit support only.

The October 9th MacRumors story, “32-Bit Apps ‘Not Optimized for Your Mac’ No Longer Working on macOS Catalina,” says “Apple warned that it (Mojave) would be the last version of macOS that would support older
