Adobe has released a robust set updates and new features with this latest version 9.3 for Adobe Lightroom Classic.
As of this morning, and without much advanced notification, Adobe has released new logo designs for both Lightroom Classic and Lightroom Desktop (aka Lightroom Cloud). This design change is, in fact, part of a larger change that Adobe is making across the entire company.

Along with updates to Lightroom Desktop, Android, iOS versions, Lightroom Classic 9.2 released yesterday Here are the takeaways of note for Classic:
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 …
Thanks to guys like Max Wendt at Adobe, we now have the Lightroom Texture Slider.
Max wanted to develop a tool for Lightroom that works like Photoshop for smoothing skin. Once he achieved the result he was looking for, he thought, “what would happen if I made the slider work the other way?” And thus, the Lightroom Texture Slider was born. Great for subtle contrast increases. Great for smoothing skin. If you’re a true technology wank, read more about Max’s Texture Control here.
It is a very useful feature that’s in …
What’s In a Name?
Hello everyone, it’s time again for Lightroom updates. But first, more confusion from the Adobe marketing team …
Adobe has tweaked the name of Lightroom Classic. Formerly, the official name was “Lightroom Classic CC” and they are now dropping the “CC” to make it just Lightroom Classic. Just to be clear, this is the original version of Lightroom that allows you to manage your own files.
The newer version of Lightroom is now being called “Lightroom” or “Lightroom Desktop.” Confused yet?? Again, to be clear, …
Version 2.1.1 For Mac and PC
Last week we highlighted the updates in Lightroom Classic 8.1. For this post we will cover updates to Lightroom CC 2.1.1. This set of releases for Lightroom CC are mostly incremental. Nevertheless, Adobe shows no signs of slowing down their development of the new platform. In fact, 2.2 is already in process and, while we’re not allowed to say what the actual improvements are, we are excited by what is coming!
This December update brings us to version 2.1.1 and we have 3 relatively minor changes along with …

Lightroom Classic CC Version 8
Lightroom Classic CC Version 8 Splash Screen
Adobe is branding this as a full version update of Lightroom Classic. However most of the updates and changes are under-the-hood improvements with a few important, feature specific improvements. Since this release coincides with the start of the 2018 Adobe MAX conference, we assume the marketing department wanted to have a bigger sounding headline. Nevertheless, these updates are welcome and demonstrate Adobe’s ongoing commitment that Lightroom Classic …
It’s only August and Adobe is already pushing out Lightroom CC 1.5 and Lightroom Classic CC 7.5 updates. Again, this is one of the upsides to having a software subscription model: continuous updates! As well, Adobe is demonstrating its continued support for Classic even as CC continues to grow and improve. When CC was released back in October of 2017, many people in the community expressed their concern that CC would mark the slow death of Classic. However, Adobe is showing that their belief in Classic is as strong as ever.
I tend to leave all my folders open
So, you’ve just imported a bunch of photos into Lightroom, but can’t find them. Where’d they go? Here are four ways on how to Search for Photos in Lightroom Classic CC.
It’s not unusual for me to have to search for photos in Lightroom Classic CC. I have a large library and there are way too many master year folders open, revealing a long list of subfolders that are time consuming to sift through. When I import a …
