Future Versions of Lightroom Will Work Only with 64 Bit Operating Systems

So, no longer MAC OS X Lion support, just to make an example.

Adobe announced that the upcoming Lightroom 6 will need at least Mac OS X 10.8 (or above) and a 64 bit version of Windows 7, 8, or 8.1. Lightroom 5 is thus the last version that will also work on a 32 bit operating system.

Update on OS Support for Next Version of Lightroom

We are hard at work on the next major release of Lightroom, and wanted to share some information on operating system requirements in order to give everyone time to prepare for the release.

In order to leverage the latest operating system features and technologies, Lightroom 6 will require Mac OS X 10.8 or above, or a 64 bit version of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1. Focusing our work on more modern operating systems and architectures allows us to spend more time adding functionality requested by users, including additional advanced imaging features and improving general application performance.

If you are on Mac OS X 10.7, or a 32 bit version of Windows, you will continue to be able to install and run Lightroom 5 and use Lightroom mobile. However, you will not be able to install Lightroom 6 until you upgrade to a supported operating system.

If you are currently running Mac OS X 10.7, Apple offers a free upgrade (here) to a more current operating system. For Windows users, Microsoft has a how-to reference (here) to help you determine whether you are running a 32 or 64 bit version of Windows.

“Match Total Exposure” May Be the Coolest Lightroom Setting You Didn’t Know About

This may be one of the coolest Lightroom 5 features you didn’t know about. I never stumbled upon this one. But it is definitely cool, and a big time saver too.

Watch Matt Kloskowski walk you thru a LR feature called “Match Total Exposure” that is as easy to use as it is powerful. Let’s say you have some wrongly exposed photos, as in a bracketing sequence because you forgot to deactivate bracketing (that’s the example in the video). You can auto-magically adjust the exposure of these pictures simply by selecting them, and then selecting a photo with the right exposure. Then clicking on a menu entry and the magic happens. This works not just for bracketing sequences. The video lasts 5 minutes, don’t miss it because is a lot of good tip for the short time you have to watch.
