Today, during the opening keynote at Adobe’s MAX Conference in Las Vegas, it’s a day of big announcements, new features, new applications, and just tons of cool stuff! Here’s a brief look at what’s coming:

Above Left: The Lightroom we know and love is now rebranded as “Lightroom Classic” – Above Right: There’s a new Lightroom in town, it’s branded as “Lightroom CC” — it’s Lightroom for “the new generation” (my words, borrowed from Pepsi I think). 

Let’s Start with Lightroom
Lots going on in the world of Lightroom, including an update (which includes a HUGE speed boost in performance, and new features); plus there’s a whole new version of Lightroom!

Today we’re releasing the new issue of Lightroom magazine (Issue #34) published 10-times a year for KelbyOne members, and our cover story is from Lightroom super brain Rob Sylvan, and he goes over the new “Ecosystem” for Lightroom; looks at the new Lightroom CC (who it’s for, and how it works), and goes over the new features in Lightroom Classic. It’s over on our sister site: LightroomKillerTips.com

Photoshop CC gets a BIG update!
Lots of new features in Photoshop CC — lots! (one of my favorites is shown above; the ability to easily edit 360° panos taken with those new 360° cameras that are becoming hot right now), but there’s lots of great stuff throughout, including the ability to open sync’d images from Lightroom from right within Photoshop; a new Quick Share option to get your images directly from Photoshop to social media; big improvements to the Pen tool (including a new Pen tool); Type enhancements; lots of great Brush Stuff; a big new masking feature in Camera RAW, and on and on.

Live “What’s Next in Photoshop and Lightroom” Webcast
Today at 11:00 AM EDT I’m doing a LIVE Webcast for KelbyOne Members to answer questions about all the new Lightroom changes; talk about the new Photoshop stuff, and chat live with members from around the world.

  1. It’s disappointing that Adobe decided to drop a perpetual Lightroom license after the big song and dance they did in their blogs when CC was announced how Lightroom would always have a perpetual option. Adobe basically give a middle finger to photographers who want perpetual licensing.

  2. It’s been 2 hrs, working in the Classic version – no problems encountered on Win 10 (whatever the current updates are…) – Nik working still…

  3. […] post Photoshop and Lightroom Get Big Updates AND There’s a Whole New Lightroom! appeared first on Scott Kelby's Photoshop […]

  4. I am now concerned that Adobe will, eventually raise prices or eliminate products until photography is no longer affordable for amateurs. Seems they are positioned to price us out of the market, or use Elements.
