Adobe Lightroom Family Updates Released - and More than One CautionBefore you decide to upgrade, read this post by +Victoria Bampton, Lightroom Queen : http://www.lightroomqueen.com/whats-new-in-lightroom-cc-2015-2-and-lightroom-6-2/ .
The whole Lightroom family of products has been updated with the releases available in various ways from now. These updates include some exciting new features to LR 2015 2 (more for CC than standalone LR 6). There are updates as well to LR Mobile (for iOS and Android, though the Android version is still a poor cousin version, needing more love, in my view), LR Web and others.
My favourite update is the Dehaze as a local adjustment (only for CC subscribers), I also quite like the new revamped import dialogue.
All the features are outlined here : http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2015/10/lightroom-cc-2015-2-now-available.html
I should make a note that, aside from the loss of the ''eject media after import " box mentioned in the caution below, other features have also been lost to this version. Everywhere you find mention of the new features, but these should be noted:
1. No more move on import option - if you have import presets with move set, this will not be honoured.
2. No Zoom in import module
3. Import destination folder tree not visible
4. File rename preview no longer shown in import dialogue
There may be others I have forgotten, but these are ones that spring to mind.
If you do decide to update, have fun with it!The Caution
There is a completely new import dialogue and it will take a little bit of getting used to. The caution relates to the fact that there is no longer a little check box for you to have your media ejected after import. This means that if you forget to safely remove it manually, once the import is complete and you just pull the card or camera out, you risk data loss.
Now if you always import all of your images on a card and immediately reformat, there is not necessarily a problem. Many folks, however, like to keep the images on the card as a safety backup until the files are backed up elsewhere. This could affect them. Or some, like myself, might import a few images for a specific purpose, leaving the others to import on another occasion. This could affect me, if the card is just pulled out without the safe remove.
See the images below for Windows Safely Remove Hardware function, located at the bottom right of the screen.
