Adobe: Lightroom 5.2, Photoshop Photo Program, Pen & Ruler Tweet This   Forward This

17 September 2013

Adobe has released Lightroom 5.2, marked the start of its Photoshop Photography Program, upgraded its pen and ruler project to a planned product and reported Creative Cloud has over one million paid subscribers. No wonder the America's Cup race today was postponed.


With the release of Lightroom 5.2, Adobe adds support for 19 cameras, a Feather control to the Spot Removal tool and a Smoothness adjustment control to the Color Noise Reduction portion of the Detail panel.

In addition Auto Exposure is more consistent across images as well as images sizes and Smart Preview size is now 2560 pixels on the long edge.

New camera support includes: Canon 70D/G16/S120, Casio ZR800, Fujifilm HS22EXR/HS35EXR/S205EXR/X-A1/X-M1, Leica C (Typ 112), Olympus OM-D E-M1, Panasonic GX7/FZ70/FZ72, Pentax Q7/K-50/K-500 and Sony RX100 II/A3000/NEX-5T.

Tethered support has been added for the Canon 6D/T5i/700D/X7i/SL1 and Nikon D7100.


Adobe also announced that its Photoshop Photography Program is now available. This specially tailored Creative Cloud membership for photographers includes:

  • Continually updated versions of Photoshop CC and Lightroom (both of which received updates today)
  • 20-GB of online storage
  • A Behance ProSite
  • Access to training resources

The program is available for $9.99 per month to customers of Photoshop CS3 and higher who sign up by Dec. 31.


In addition, Adobe announced it is moving its Project Mighty and Project Napoleon previewed at Adobe MAX from technology exploration to "planned products expected to ship in the first half of 2014."

The cloud pen and digital ruler hardware "will help make digital creativity more accessible and more natural by combining the accuracy, expressiveness and immediacy of pen and paper with all the advantages of Adobe digital products and Creative Cloud," the company said.
