  • Any recommendation for Lightroom preset packs? For multi-purpose use, different looks. Like you are not sure what you are after, so you could just try different presets until something pleases your eye, and start working from there.

    But, if you have PS and a LUT collection (there are tons of free LUTs out there), I'll save the money and create an automated action in PS. You can also use free version of 3D Lut Creator (in the mask section) to preview all LUTs in a folder... and it's so much faster than PS's drop-down menu, just a previous/next arrow button, you can also preview them with different opacities and/or with an specified mask... really cool ,-)

  • Lightroom 6/CC offers only small improvements to the Develop Module, like the ability to move and copy Adjustment Brush pins, and to modify Graduated Filter and Radial Filter selections with a brush. Nice, but hardly earth-shattering.

  • It's a pity that LR still hasn't implemented LUTs, floating panels to reposition as you like (I much prefer left side controls), widen MFT lenses' profiles or allowed cropping in other than fit to screen mode, there are some bugs also, specially purging video memory and the irritating impossibility of comparing before and after single versions in dimmed screen as image gets also dark.

    People (face) detection and tagging, use of GPU, general (slight) speed improvement and combination graduated filter+ brush are what I personally find more compelling. Honestly, unless you live on crowd HDR panos not worth the upgrade IMO... and for sporadic users there's all there in free ACR 9 ,-)

    Anyway some more features:

    Import, Library and Collections
    • In addition to adding images to a collection on Import, you can automatically add images to a collection when shooting tethered.
    • You can show badges in the filmstrip, but have them ignore any accidental clicks (Preferences > Interface > Ignore clicks on badges).
    • Flag and Rating categories have been added to the metadata filters.
    • “Camera + Lens” and “Camera + Lens Setting” have been added to the Loupe info options (via the View options).
    • Moving photos to another folder is faster than in previous versions.
    The Develop Module
    • When using the Radial and Graduated Filters to make local adjustments, Shift + T will toggle between editing the filter and the brush.
    You can now reposition edits created using the Adjustment Brush by dragging the pin. Option -drag (Mac) | Alt -drag (Win) reverts to the older behavior (“scrubbing” the applied adjustments when click-dragging left or right on the pin).
    Shift-drag to constrain the Adjustment Brush movements vertically or horizontally.
    Click once, then Shift -click in another area with the Adjustment Brush to draw a straight line between the points.
    • Hover the cursor on top of the pin to display a Mask overlay for the Gradient and Radial filters.
    • When cropping, there is a new Auto button (in the Angle area), that will try to do an auto level similar to the Upright command.
    • Control + Tab allows you to cycle through the Upright modes.
    You can now choose CMYK profiles when using the Soft Proofing controls in the Develop Module.
    • The Lens correction panel indicates if a photo has built in lens correction applied. (This can be especially helpful for micro 4/3s and mirrorless lenses that can be automatically adjusted using opt codes.)
    Additional Preferences
    • Option + Shift (Mac) | Alt + Shift (Win) allows resetting of preferences when launching Lightroom. (Launch the app and then immediately hold down the keyboard shortcut keys.)
    • The Pinstripe texture option in the Interface preferences has been replaced with a “Darker” gray”
    • Percentage options have been added to the image resizing section of the Export Dialog.
    The Book Module
    • Photo text metadata settings will now be saved with custom pages.
    Touch Enabled Devices
    • There is a new workspace for touch enabled devices which is very similar to Lightroom on mobile devices. When a keyboard is removed, Lightroom automatically enters this mode. Many of the same gestures that are found when using Lightroom on mobile devices are available for touch enabled devices including; triple touch to show info, swipe to assign flags and stars, swipe to move from one image to the next etc. These gestures are also available when the keyboard is attached so that a combination of mouse/gestures can be used at the same time.
    • In addition, touch enabled devices have access to all of the panels in the Develop module (they’re not limited to the basic panel like Lightroom on mobile), including local adjustments (spot healing, graduated filter etc.), and custom presets.
    Lightroom on mobile devices
    Lightroom1.4 for iOS devices now includes the Auto Straighten option and an improved cropping experience.
    Lightroom 1.1 on Android now supports device-created DNG files, support for Android tablets and support for micro-SD cards.
