Camera Raw, Lightroom Classic & Desktop | February 2022

 The latest updates to Lightroom Classic (11.2), Lightroom Desktop (5.2) and Camera Raw (14.2) were released to customers today (7 February). These updates include new camera and lens support plus bug fixes. There are also some performance enhancements to the Lightroom Classic Library module, tweaks to masking and some helpful enhancements to existing features in Lightroom Desktop.

Lightroom Desktop

Lightroom Classic

Multitasking in Library Module

With this release, Adobe have extended multitasking to Folder/Collection search and Library Metadata Filters. With this change, catalog read operations are unblocked for Folder/Collection search and Library Metadata Filters. In earlier versions these operations were sequential and thus blocked other catalog operations.

A useful example of where above will prove beneficial is when you apply a Develop preset using Quick Develop panel to a large set of images and also want to search different folders/collection or use metadata filters. Both operations can now be done simultaneously, unlike previous versions of LrC versions, where you had to wait for the first operation to complete before the second could be started.

Masking Enhancements

Adobe have added the following enhancements to the Masking panel.

  • The position of Masking Panel is remembered throughout the session, and it can also be moved to secondary monitor.
  • All components in a mask can be moved together without holding the Ctrl/Cmd key. However, the ‘mask’ should be selected, and not an individual component while this operation is being performed. This enhancement is applicable only to brush, linear gradient, and radial gradient masks
  • The Masking Panel can opened or closed using Shift+W

Photoshop Elements 2022

With this release, you can import a Photoshop Elements 2022 catalog into Lightroom Classic.

Lightroom Desktop

Lightroom Desktop receives the following enhancements.

  • Masking – Intersect Masking Option
  • Export Short Side – When exporting using custom dimensions, you can now choose to specify the dimension of the Short Side rather than the Long Side.
  • Version Export – Versions can be exported from the Versions panel both individually and all in a batch. This can be done with both Named Versions and Auto Versions.

Adobe Lightroom 4.1 & Camera Raw 7.1 Now Available

Adobe has just released the final release version of Lightroom 4.1. The software is available directly from Adobe.Com and through the update mechanism in Lightroom 4.  The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom. In addition, Lightroom 4.1 introduces the following new features:

The ability to process HDR TIFF files.  (16, 24 or 32-bit TIFF files)  This can be useful if you have merged multiple exposures into a single 32-bit image using Photoshop’s HDR Pro.  Using the new basic panel controls can be a very effective and straightforward method of achieving an overall balance across the tonal range.

  • Additional Colour Fringing corrections to help address chromatic aberration.  Click here to learn more
  • Save photobooks created in the Book Module as JPEG files
  • Publishing photos to Adobe Revel is now accessible via a Publish plugin.

Also, released is Adobe Camera Raw 7.1 and DNG Converter 7.1. As with Lightroom 4.1, Camera Raw now includes support for the editing HDR TIFF files and colour fringing corrections.  Camera Raw and DNG Converter 7.1 can be downloaded from:
