Adobe Lightroom & Camera RAW Photography Software/Apps Gets An Update

Written by Gina Stephens


Adobe has dropped an update for its catalogue of photography-related outcomes which includes Camera RAW, Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC (for Mac, Windows, Android, ChromeOS, and iOS). 

There's a new AI (Sensei-powered) feature ready called 'Enhance Detail' which, with some clever algorithms, can increase the resolution of an image. For those who like to know a bit more in the technology behind it, Adobe says that the feature focuses on Demosaicing which, they say,  is 'an integral technique to raw processing and works at the pixel level, converting the information captured by a camera into something that looks like the photos we all expect to see'. 

"The new Raise Details algorithm enables you to increase the resolution of both Bayer and X-Trans based photos by up to 30{b2ee9981cbbb8b0b163040ea529e4efa9927b5e917c58e02d7678b19266ae8ff}. Enhance Details works on any RAW file independently from files converted to a linear raw file, HDR or Panorama merged files (though you can apply Enhance Details to the ingredient files first and then mix), smart proxies, lossy compressed DNGs, or DNGs saved with 1.1 compatibility," explains Adobe. 

"Administering Enhance Details to your photos can greatly improve fine detail rendering, improve the reproduction of fine colours, and resolve issues that some consumers reported with their Fujifilm X-Trans based cameras," says Adobe. 

In addition, Adobe has added HDR, Pano, and HDR Pano mingle tools, the Target Adjustment Tool and histogram clipping indicators to Lightroom CC for Mac/Windows. 




Those who use Lightroom on iOS logos will now be able to create an online share of photos photograph (also known as a photo) is an image created by light falling on a photosensitive surface, usually photographic film or with an arbitrary assortment of photos. Instead of creating an album and sharing that album, you can now closed any number of photos that you want to share, tap the 3-dot menu at the top-right of the screen, and then select Share to Web. Like any other web share, you can repress whether people that you share that link with can download or see the photos’ metadata.
