So, I’ve just downloaded the trial version of Lightroom CC as I prepare to start traveling this weekend.
Off the bat you won’t see a lot of changes to the user interface but there are a couple of small additions you might pick up and I will dig a bit deeper and share more on these in future blog posts.
For now, here are a few of the features that caught my eye and that might be of interest to you as you explore Lightroom’s latest rendition.
This particular one I can’t see myself using all that often but had to see how Lightroom will deal with merging HDR images. A simple pop up window and very simple interface seems like it will be quite easy to use but just hope people don’t get carried away and over-HDR all their pics now that it’s this easy.
Been waiting for this one. You can now ‘see’ what you’ve done in the Graduated Filter Tool by adding an overlay mask like you would with the Special Adjustment brush. Small change, very handy!
Even better than having an overlay mask on the Graduated Filter is the same overlay mask on the Radial Filter. I used to have to over expose, check the area that will be adjusted and then go from there so this is awesome!
For those of you who have issued with skew horizons, you can know ask Lightroom CC / 6 to auto adjust this and straighten it for for you. Still need to check out how accurate this is but nice idea.
More to follow as I dig deeper into the new Lightroom.
If you have any questions let me know and let’s figure out the best way we can use this new upgrade from Adobe to streamline our workflow and to get the most out of our images!
Until next time.
