Adobe updates: Guided Upright feature and new camera, lens support added to Lightroom and ACR
posted Wednesday, June 8, 2016 at 11:03 PM EDT
Adobe has today updated its core imaging apps, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw. Depending upon whether you prefer the perpetually-licensed or subscription variants, Lightroom is now up to versions 6.6 or CC2015.6, and includes a new "Guided Upright" feature and camera support. Adobe Camera Raw 9.6 includes Guided Upright as well, in addition to new camera and lens support.
So what is Guided Upright? The Upright feature already exists in both Lightroom and ACR, and it works well when an image has prominent lines -- but not all images have prominent lines. Guided Upright works by allowing you to draw two to four guide lines on your image to help the software transform your image. You can check out the feature in action in the video below.
In addition to the new transforming feature, Lightroom and Camera Raw add support for the new Canon G7X II, Leica M-D (Typ 262), Nikon Coolpix B700 and Panasonic GX85. Both also add support for a wide variety of lenses. For the list of new lens support profiles, see here.
Both the Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw updates are available now through their respective update mechanisms. Be sure to check out the Adobe blogs for both Lightroom and Camera Raw to see the full list of resolved issues.
