Course Overview
Hi, this is D. A. Wagner, and welcome to my course on the Adobe Lightroom Updates for 2017. I'm an advertising photographer and Adobe certified Lightroom expert, and a professional photography coach. Adobe Lightroom is the premier photo management and editing application on the market today. And with this update to version 7 of Lightroom, we are going to be seeing a number of performance enhancements that are going to make Lightroom 7 a joy to use. The developers at Adobe have worked from the ground up to make Lightroom so much faster, which we know everyone's going to appreciate. And along with the speed enhancements, Adobe's also introducing two new editing tools that are simply phenomenal, range masking tools for color and luminance. The other bit of major news from Adobe is a new image management and editing application that will share the name Lightroom. This new program will be fully cloud enabled and will allow users to easily share and edit their images across multiple devices. At the end of this course, my partner at lightroomguide. com, David Mark Erickson, will give you an overview of the key features of this new program, as well as discuss the very important question, should you switch? In this course, we're going to review the major performance enhancements, look briefly at the under the hood improvements, demo the new image editing tools in version 7 of Lightroom Classic CC, and review the key features and differences of the new version of Lightroom. So join me on this course to learn more about the improvements and additions to the newly named Lightroom Classic CC, which is essentially Lightroom 7, and to find out more about the new version of Lightroom that will be released soon.

October 2017 Lightroom Classic CC Updates
Hi, this is D. A. Wagner from lightroomguy. com. I'm an advertising photographer and Adobe certified Lightroom expert, and a private photography coach. Welcome to the features and updates for this latest version of Lightroom CC, which has now been renamed, Lightroom Classic CC. And naming conventions aside, this new version is essentially Lightroom 7. To quote the developers at Adobe, the top five goals for this version of Lightroom were faster performance, faster performance, faster performance, image editing goodness, and faster performance. And so, how did they do? Pretty good. As promised, there are quite a few speed enhancements in this version, and there are two new image editing tools that take Lightroom up a notch or two, making it an even more compelling application for serious, amateur, and professional photographers alike. In order to take advantage of many of these new Lightroom Classic CC enhancements, you'll need to have a fairly current operating system on your computer. On Macintosh, you should have Mac OS 10. 11, that's El Capitan, or later. And if you're using Windows, you should be using Windows 10. 0. 14393 or later. Also in this version, Adobe's a bit ahead of the curve with new camera and lens support for a large number of smartphones, iPads, lenses, and DSLRs, including many of the new Sony, Canon, Olympus, and Nikon cameras. You can read more about the camera lens updates, along with an outline of the new features in the accompanying PDF for this module.
