Edit and organize your photos with the app that’s optimized for desktop.
Lightroom Classic gives you powerful one-click tools and advanced controls to make your photos look amazing. Easily organize all your photos on your desktop, and share in a variety of ways.
Your best shots. Made even better.
Your photos don’t always reflect the scene the way you remember it. But with Lightroom Classic, you have all the desktop editing tools you need to bring out the best in your photographs. Punch up colors, make dull-looking shots vibrant, remove distracting objects, and straighten skewed shots. Plus, the latest release offers improved performance so you can work faster than ever.
With better performance under the hood, Lightroom Classic lets you import photos, generate previews, and move from Library to Develop Module in record time.
Use range masking tools to easily select the areas or objects you want to edit based on their color, luminance, or depth.
Create HDR panos faster now that you can merge multiple bracketed exposures into multiple HDR photos and then stitch them into a panorama — all in one step.
Remove shading using Flat-Field Correction
You can now reduce shading, or lens cast, from your digital photos using the Flat-Field Correction feature. Shading can occur from a variety of different lenses and can result in both asymmetrical vignettes as well as color casts introduced by certain lens characteristics.
Flat-Field Correction is available in the Library module. To apply the correction, select all your photos in a natural interleaved order and choose Lightroom > Library > Flat-Field Correction.
Smoothen or enhance details with Texture slider
You can now smoothen or accentuate details such as skin, bark, and hair with the new Texture slider. You can adjust the Texture slider negatively to smooth skin and retain fine pore details to ensure natural-looking skin. You can increase the Texture amount to accentuate details such as bark or hair without affecting less detailed areas, like the out of focus areas in a photograph. Adjusting the Texture slider does not change the color or tonality in your photograph.
You can apply texture to your photos both as a global adjustment and to specific parts of the photo as a local adjustment. To apply texture, select a photo and switch to the Develop module.
Support for new cameras and lenses
Full list of supported cameras and lens profiles you can find on Adobe.com website.
Import photos from devices using the Files section
When you import photos from storage devices, such as SD card and CF card, the photos are now selected from the Import grid’s Files section by default. In previous versions, it used to be from the Device section.
Importing from the Files section is more performant. The Files section selects the DCIM folder of the storage device where the camera saves images. If you want to select any other folder, you can do so.
Improved performance of Auto setting
Experience performance improvements when you apply Auto settings. In the Develop module, the Auto option is located next to Tone in the Basic panel.
