Adobe Releases Two Fairly-Awesome New Features for Lightroom CC Users


Hi Gang. Not sure you if caught this, but last week Adobe released a Lightroom update with two pretty significant and mightily cool features; along with new camera support; tethering support for some new cameras; new lens profiles, and a host of bug fixes.

The two awesome features are:

(1) New “Guided Upright” lens corrections
This lets you tell Lightroom where the lens problems are, and it does the rest. It’s really well done (get more details, and a video demo from Adobe’s own Julieanne Kost).

(2) The ability to merge HDRs and create Panos from just the Smart Previews
Previously, you had to have the original images to do this, and without it those menu commands were grayed out). This is cooler than you’d think, and I wrote about this today over on my Lightroom blog:

If you’re an Adobe CC subscriber, you can download this update by going to Lightroom’s Help menu and choosing ‘Updates’

Hope you find that helpful.



  1. It seems with the update they removed the full screen option for Lightroom. When you click on the green button on the top right hand corner (in mac) and Lightroom gets its own full screen. Can we please request to have this back in the next update.
