Adobe Releases Minor Update to Lightroom, Camera Raw Share This on LinkedIn   Share This on Google   Tweet This   Forward This

29 April 2016

In a series of blog posts on the Lightroom Journal, the company announced minor updates to Lightroom, Lightroom mobile and Camera Raw.

The updates add support for the Pentax K-1 and Sony RX10M3 and address various bugs in the three applications.

One known issue remains unresolved, according to Mangalick:

Image flickers when moving an adjustment slider. Note that this only occurs when using certain AMD graphics cards (such as 6450-MB and 6970-MB) on Mac OS 10.11 (El Capitan). We are working with our partners to resolve this issue. In the meantime, you can workaround this issue by disabling "Use Graphics Processor" in Camera Raw's preferences.

We've included links below to the original blog postings to facilitate feedback to Adobe on the updates.


Sharad Mangalick described the bugs fixed in the new Lightroom release:

  • Droplets not working as export actions
  • Issues with incorrect folder permissions. See instructions to help correct user permissions issues.
  • EXIF lens name not visible for some camera models. See instructions to reparse the Lens metadata after installing the update.
  • Focus lost in the keyword panel when navigating to the next image
  • Error when merging to HDR or Panorama from a collapsed stack
  • Removed dependencies on QuickTime for some video codecs on Windows


Josh Haftel described the changes to Lightroom for iOS 2.3:

  • Reduces the number of steps required to edit a photo from the Camera Roll. You can now start editing immediately with a single photo.
  • Importing multiple photos was also made easier by being able to swipe across a series of photos directly.

By making it possible to start editing directly, you no longer have to find a photo, import it, find it again, and then start editing.


Sharad Mangalick described the bugs fixed in the new Camera Raw:

  • EXIF lens name not visible for some camera models.
  • Camera Raw would not launch under Mac OSX 10.7 and 10.8.
  • Errors when using Camera Raw to tone HDR images from Photoshop. This occurred when converting 32-bit files to 16 or 8-bit files.
