new photoshop and lightroom!

The yearly round of Photoshop and Lightroom updates is upon us. Timed to coincide with Adobe’s Max conference, we’re used to seeing these annual updates to our favorite imageediting apps.

what you need to know about lightroom cc

LIGHTROOM CC: A BRAND-NEW APP Haven’t we been using Lightroom CC for years? Yes, but there’s been an important change. ‘Lightroom CC’ refers to a new app geared towards cloudbased editing, optimized to work across your desktop, mobile, tablet and web. The Lightroom we know and love has been rebranded as ‘Lightroom Classic’. WHY THE SPLIT? Effectively, there are now two different versions of Lightroom for you to choose from: Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic. Classic caters for those who prefer a file/folder/local storage editing workflow. WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT SEARCH? Lightroom CC’s Search bar is a revelation. Utilizing the Adobe Sensei system of deep learning and machine intelligence, the Search feature in Lightroom CC can pull out images from your library without any prior keywording or tagging. It does this by analyzing the content…

lightroom cc: your guided tour

This right side houses all the tools and sliders Lightroom users will be familiar with. They’re organized differently – categorized as Light, Color, Details, Effects, Optics and Geometry. In this guide we’ll take you through a Lightroom CC workflow, from importing a set of photos to starring, editing and saving. 01 IMPORT YOUR NEW PHOTOS Open Lightroom CC and click the plus icon. Navigate to your folder of images…

color range and luminance masking unleashed

Color Range and Luminance are two new masking settings. You can find them in Camera Raw and Lightroom Classic (but not Lightroom CC), within the three Adjustment tools – the Adjustment Brush, the Radial Filter and the Graduated Filter. Previously these three tools let you define an area by painting with the brush or adding a circular or linear gradient. These new settings act as a ‘sub-mask’ within the filter area, letting you target and adjust specific colors or portions of the tonal range. So after plotting a Graduated Filter over a sky then dialling in negative exposure, you can use Color Range so that the grad only affects the blues in the sky.
