Adobe Lightroom 6 Announced

Adobe has just officially announced Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6, the latest version of the popular and user-friendly non-destructive photo editor.  Lightroom 6 is already available for download as a standalone product (US MSRP $149) or via the Photoshop Creative Cloud subscription. A boxed version will start shipping by the end of April.

Lightroom can be used on its own or as a supplement to Adobe Photoshop, which offers a host of advanced tools and even more photo editing capabilities.  Many photographers use Lightroom for workflow management and general editing while relying on Photoshop for advanced editing.

Lightroom 6 is an incremental upgrade over Lightroom 5.  It includes a number of new photo editing and publishing features, including:

  • Filter brush for more precise filter control
  • Facial recognition and categorization
  • HDR merge
  • Panorama merge
  • Advanced video slideshows
  • Improved web galleries
  • Performance improvements / GPU acceleration

Order Lightroom 6: $9.99 subscription at Adobe, $149 download at B&H, $149 boxed at Adorama

Upgrades for owners of older Lightroom versions are available through Adobe for $79.
