Adobe has released Lightroom Classic CC v7.3.1 to address issues discovered in the last release. In addition, the company posted All About Profiles: How Profiles Work and Making Your Own.

In the post, Josh Haftel explains what the new release covers:

We heard your feedback and felt that parts of the release didn't uphold the level of quality that we hold ourselves to. We're happy to report that these issues were resolved and now available for immediate download. Some of the issues resolved included converting presets, sorting and copying/pasting profiles, translation errors, along with crash fixes.

More details follow and can be found in the New Features Summary for Lightroom:


Issues fixed in Lightroom Classic CC 7.3.1 (April 2018 release):

  • Some presets are not converting to new format. For more information about the solution, see this tech note.
  • With B&W legacy presets, the profile resets to Adobe Standard
  • Develop presets not sorting correctly
  • Translation errors in other languages for some profiles
  • Black and White Mix settings: Unable to Copy/Sync
  • Lightroom backup catalog error issues. To resolve a corruption issue in the backed up catalogs, update to Lightroom Classic CC v7.3.1 and then back up your catalogs again. If you're backing up your catalogs on macOS, see below.


Known issue in Lightroom Classic CC 7.3.1 (April 2018 release)

(Only on macOS) When backing up your catalogs on macOS, Lightroom Classic doesn't compress (zip) catalogs that have a file size less than 4 GB. As a workaround to this issue, manually compress the backed up catalog files. Compressed files take up less hard disk space. By default, Lightroom Classic saves backed up catalogs to the following location on macOS:
/Users/[user name]/Pictures/Lightroom/[catalog name]/Backups.
