Adobe Updates Lightroom, Camera Raw Share This on LinkedIn   Share This on Google   Tweet This   Forward This

Adobe today announced updates to both Lightroom CC/6.5 and Camera Raw, its Raw file processor used in both Lightroom and Photoshop. The updates are available through the update mechanisms available in the Creative Cloud application and in Lightroom and Photoshop.


In a Lightroom Journal post today by Lightroom Product Manager Sharad Mangalick,

New camera support includes the Canon 1D X Mark II/80D/1300D, Nikon D5/D500, Olympus PEN-F/SH-3, Panasonic CM10/GF8/ZS100, Samsung NX3300, Sony Alpha a6300 and Yuneec CGO4.

New lens profile support includes optics from Android phones, Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Samsung and Sony.

Big fixes include:

  • Several fixes related to Panorama Merge: Remove dust spots in one image and then merge to pano; Boundary Warp improved; Removed the auto projection option.
  • Fixed sync errors for faster sync to the Lightroom iOS and Android apps.
  • Scrolling through images in Loupe view with your mouse is back.
  • Slide Shows are back in high-resolution. Fixed a bug that caused them to appear much lower res than expected.
  • Reinstated scroll bars so that you can browse faster in the Book module


According to another Lightroom Journal post by Sharad Mangalick, Camera Raw 9.5 features "an updated visual interface designed to align with Photoshop CC and Bridge" and support for the same new cameras as Lightroom, in addition to a number of bug fixes:

  • Fixed crash/hang in Camera Raw and DNG Converter on some Mac systems when saving multiple images
  • Fixed corruption issue preventing DNG images created by Parrot Bebop Drone devices from being opened after metadata updates
  • Pressing the Option/Alt key while click-dragging on a perimeter handle of a Radial Filter will adjust only that side of the filter. This change in behavior was made to match Lightroom's behavior. Previously, Option/Alt-clicking on a Radial Filter in Camera Raw would delete that filter.
  • Camera Raw Filter now displays the histogram and RGB color readouts using the assigned color space of the corresponding Photoshop document. Previously, Camera Raw Filter always displayed its histogram and RGB color readouts using the ProPhoto color space.
  • Improved quality of Boundary Warp for some panoramas
  • Fix bug where Exif metadata for Sigma 50mm f1.4 ART lens on Canon was incorrectly identified as Zeiss Milvus 50mm f1.4.

Camera Raw 9.5 is only available in Photoshop CC or later. If you're using an older version of Photoshop, use DNG Converter for continued camera support.
