Camera Raw 9.5 now available

pscc

Camera Raw 9.5 is now available through the update mechanism in Photoshop CC and the Creative Cloud application.

As mentioned in an update to Adobe’s camera support policy here, Camera Raw 9.5 is only available in Photoshop CC or later.  Customers using older versions of Photoshop can utilise the DNG Converter for continued camera support.

The Camera Raw 9.5 interface has also been updated to align with Photoshop CC and Bridge.

You can change your Photoshop or Bridge colour scheme from interface preferences within the host application. The Camera Raw interface colour will then mimic your chosen colour scheme

Bugs Fixed in Camera Raw 9.5

  • Fix crash/hang in Camera Raw and DNG Converter on some Mac systems when saving multiple images.
  • Fix corruption issue that would prevent DNG images originally 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 behaviour. 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.
  • Improve quality of Boundary Warp for some panoramas.
  • Fix bug where EXIF metadata for SIGMA 50mm f/1.4 ART lens on Canon was incorrectly identified as Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4.

Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.5 and 6.5 now available

lr-cc-logoLightroom CC 2015.5 and Lightroom 6.5 are now available on Adobe.com. Adobe’s main focus for this release was to add support for new cameras and lenses, and also fix bugs that existed in previous versions of Lightroom.

 

Bugs Fixed in Lightroom CC 2015.5 / 6.5

  • Some issues related to Panorama Merge have been fixed.
  •  Sensor dust spots can ruin your perfect pano as they will appear multiple times across the image. With this version Adobe have tweaked things so that removing a spot in one image removes it from the rest when pano is merged.

  • Boundary Warp gets better as Adobe fixed a bunch of bugs.
  • Removed the ‘auto’ projection option. Turns out, it always picked the same projection mode.

Other Bug Fixes

Adobe have also fixed a number of sync errors, including:

  • Faster sync to the Lightroom iOS and Android apps.
  • Scrolling through images in Loupe view with your mouse is back!
  • Slideshows are back in high­resolution. Fixed a bug that caused them to appear much lower res than expected.
  • Books are made for browsing. The scroll bars have been reinstated so that you can browse faster in the Book module
