What’s new in Lightroom Classic?

What’s New In Lightroom Classic CC

The biggest update to Lightroom Classic (the artist formally known as CC) is speed. Improved performance in the following areas:

  • Application launch time
  • Preview generation
  • Import and culling workflow with “Embedded & Sidecar” preview option
  • Switching between Library and Develop Module
  • Moving from photo to photo in the Develop Module
  • More responsive brushing

Range Masking: This allows for really accurate masking in Lightroom, beyond what you could do with auto mask. This feature alone makes it an exciting upgrade. Just like we would use the color range tool in Photoshop for selections, we can now use color and tone to detect edges and make clean masks. These masks work with all the local adjustment tools; Radial Gradient, Graduated Filter, and Local Adjustment Brush.
