Camera Raw, Lightroom Classic & Desktop | February 2023

  The latest updates to Camera Raw (15.2), Lightroom Classic (12.2) and Lightroom Desktop (6.2) have been released to customers. These updates include new camera and lens support along with bug fixes. There are also a few relatively minor features additions in Lightroom Classic that I’ll discuss below.

Develop History [Lightroom Classic]

As supplement to the History context menu a new KBSC has been added to remove history steps. Holding Alt/Option key and clicking on a history step clears all other history steps above it.

Remove History Steps

Keywords [Lightroom Classic]

A new menu option to export Keywords along with the keyword tag options, like – Person, Include on Export, etc.

When this new menu option is selected, LrC will create a ‘.csv‘ file when exporting the keywords.

The following keyword related operations have also been optimised:

  • Keywords Addition
  • Keywords Deletion
  • Keyword Filtering
  • Keywords Export

Sync for Adobe Cloud [Lightroom Classic]

Syncing of files from the Adobe Cloud has received some optimisations. This work should address the long standing issue of sync stalling during the synchronisation process.

Tethered Capture [Lightroom Classic]

When macOS Ventura 13.x was released by Apple it broke tethered capture for users of Canon and Nikon cameras. For Canon users, the issue was fixed in LrC 12.1. Adobe have now fixed the issue of Nikon cameras not getting detected for tethered capture

Map module [Lightroom Classic]

A new option ‘Show more labels’ to show more or less labels on Map view is now available in the Map module toolbar.

By default, LrC will show the ‘Less Labels’ option to ensure that the map doesn’t become overly cluttered.

The ‘Set Time Zone Offset…’ has been renamed as ‘Set Tracklog Time Offset…’ for Tracklog in LrC 12.2 Map module.

Support has also added for minutes in the Tracklog Time Offset dialog. Now, you can enter the time offset in HH:mm format, which is very helpful for location that use timezone offsets less than one hour (e.g. India and Nepal).
