What The New Lightroom CC Can Do For You.
Lightroom CC – Adobe just announced the latest version of Lightroom and it’s called Lightroom CC.
Lightroom CC is a major release with some completely redesigned elements complete with powerful new tools and features but what exactly can Lighroom CC do for you?
What’s New In Lightroom CC?
First out of the gate are the performance-enhancing features. Unlike previous versions of Lightroom, Lightroom CC now utilises the GPU on your computer.
This means that Lighroom now has access to never-before-used processing power in Lightroom. Adobe is claiming that this could help boost the performance of the program by a factor of 10 for some users.
New Features In Lightroom CC and Lightroom 6.
We all love HDR when it’s done well and the new Lightroom appears to make this even simpler. Combine multiple images, shot with different exposure settings, into a single HDR masterpiece. What looks really impressive is that you can even create a HDR DNG RAW file. This is massive!
Stitching together a panoramic image had been a very time-consuming undertaking. With the improvements in Lightroom CC you can now stitch together multiple images to create a single panoramic photograph with all the benefits of editing a single RAW file at the end.
Facial recognition was a great feature in Apple’s Aperture program and now that same ability to sort and search people by their faces has been added in the new Lightroom.
A new Filter Brush has been added that allows photographers to modify gradients created using the Graduated Filter and Radial Filter. Lightroom CC features a new Filter Brush feature that lets you erase parts of the gradient or paint any part of a gradient into any other part of the photo.
Lightroom CC is now available as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud for photographers package, including mobile apps for €12.29 per month. The stand-alone Photoshop Lightroom 6 is now available for €134.07 including VAT.
This is only a very quick taste of what you’ll be able to accomplish using Lighting CC and Lightroom 6. To get a greater understanding of what’s possible we recommend heading on over to Adobe’s YouTube channel and watching their quick tutorials for the new Lightroom system.
