How to upgrade to Adobe Lightroom 6

Yesterday Adobe released Lightroom 6 (also available as Lightroom CC). It became quickly clear that Adobe wants everyone to get Lightroom CC. The update to LR6 is available only on Adobe’s site, and it is pretty hidden. To update from LR5 or LR4 to LR6 follow these instructions:

  • Head over to Adobe’s site
  • Under “Photoshop Lightroom 6 – $149″ click “Buy”
  • Change your purchase from “Full” to “Upgrade”
  • Next, select the version of LR you actually own
  • Check-out and pay $79 for the upgrade

The full version of Adobe Lightroom 6 are on sale for $149: Adorama | B&H Photo

Adobe just released Lightroom 6/Lightroom CC. All new features are listed on Adobe’s page, a comparison between Lightroom versions is here (LR CC, LR 6, LR 5), the new version can be downloaded here. The new Lightroom will come as a standalone product, and as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud plan.

Support for the following Canon cameras has been added:

  • Canon EOS 5DS

Among the highlights of Lightroom 6 are HDR imaging, Panorama Merge, facial recognition, new slide shows, and more. Watch the Lightroom 6 introduction videos below to learn more.





Adobe Lightroom CC listed at Adorama, and first article

Today Adobe will launch Lightroom CC/Lightroom 6. It is already listed at Adorama for $149, and there is a first LR CC article at PC Magazine:

Lightroom CC is now available as part of an Adobe Creative Cloud Photography subscription ($9.99 per month) or as the equivalent standalone $149 perpetual-license Lightroom 6 application. But the single purchase option won’t include syncing photos to Adobe’s mobile apps, such as Lightroom Mobile, Slate, and Voice. Adobe uses a smaller-footprint version of the photo file called Smart Preview for transmitting to Web and devices, so bandwidth and storage aren’t taxed unnecessarily.

The new Lightroom will come as a standalone product, and as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud plan. Stay tuned, he release will happen in a few hours.

 

(CW4) Adobe Lightroom 6 coming tomorrow, April 21st?

Looks like the announcement of Adobe Lightroom 6 is imminent. Fuji Rumors spotted a teaser for “something really BIG” at lightroomkillertips. Scott Kelby isn’t explicitly mentioning LR6, but we think it is very likely that Lightroom 6 will be announced tomorrow. Writes Scott Kelby:

OK, for us, things don’t get much bigger than this — now, unfortunately I can’t tell you actually what it is that’s coming Tuesday, but it’s SO BIG that we’re doing FOUR free live Webcasts on Tuesday and you’re invited (if you’re a photographer, you’re going to want to be there to see and talk about this big secret thingy).

Stay tuned…
