Lightroom Mobile for iOS 2.3

Adobe announces that Lightroom Mobile for iOS 2.3 is now available from today.

In Lightroom on mobile (iOS), you can now directly access the photos on your device's Camera Roll from the Collections view and the Lightroom photos view. The photo selected from the Camera Roll now opens in Camera Roll edit view where you can apply Crop, Presets, and Adjustments. When you accept the edits, the photo is automatically added to Lightroom.

This iOS update coincides with the release on the desktop of Lightroom CC 2015.5.1 and LR6.5.1 - see below - and users should note that on first launch it will be necessary to sign-in via the activity center. The activity center can be accessed in the LR Library by hovering top-left with the mouse over the name plate and clicking the drop-down icon that appears.

New Lightroom Update

Lightroom CC 2015.5.1 and Lightroom 6.5.1 have been released today. It’s a double-dot update, not a major update so there may be no rush to install it unless you are affected by the specific bugs which have been fixed – see link below for further information. This release also provides raw file support for two new cameras:

Pentax K-1

Sony DSC-RX10M3

As mentioned above, if you use Lightroom Mobile it will be necessary to sign-in again via the identity plate fter installing this update.

QuickTime Player - Apple Drops Support on Windows

Apple has apparently decided to stop supporting QuickTime on Windows. The software is often installed with iTunes and some third party applications use the interface for working with MOV and MP4 files. Windows users may wish to uninstall QT or at least stop using the app for video playback.

There have been some suggestions that the application could be re-named e.g. changed from QuickTimePlayer.exe to QuickTime_OLD.exe. That would disable the program whilst leaving the video codecs installed.


Adobe aims to offer native support for all video applications.
