It’s that time again. Every few months Adobe does what they call a “dot” update to many of their products and Lightroom is usually one of them. These aren’t the BIG updates that come every fall, but they usually sneak a cool feature or two in to them and this release is actually bigger than most. I think you’re going to love the local adjustment Hue control they they’ve added as well as a few others. Enjoy!
What’s New in Lightroom Classic (June 2020 Update)
Jun 16, 2020 | Lightroom, Tutorials | 57 comments
Thanks Matt for the LR update video. I have been using PS & LR for years. Some great changes and I learnt something again from your very informative video. I should have watched it earlier!
I had been using the LR preset brushes and gradients. They have disappeared with the update of LR
Classic. I have tried reinstalling and restart but they do not appear. Any suggestions of what I am doing wrong?
Hi Pat. If they are my presets, they come with install videos and some may have been updated recently so you can log in to your account and re-download them. If you can’t get in your account feel free to message us at Mattk.com/contact and some one can help you out. Thanks.
HI Matt, I have purchased one of your Lightromm courses but I have a problem that I hope you can help me with. Whenever I try to use the radial filter and make a change to the image, the whole image gets affected and not only the selected areas within/or outside the circle. What am I doing wrong?
Hi Juan. There is an option with the Radial filter (toward the bottom of the settings) called “Invert”. That will tell the filter to go on the inside or the outside of the area. If you watch the video on the Radial Filter (in the course) it will go in depth on how to use it and show you the options. Hope that helps!
appreciate the continuing education, Matt!
Will these presets work with future updates to LR?
Hi. Adobe has never broken backward compatibility with presets before, so my guess is they won’t moving ahead. So yes, they should work just fine and if they don’t I would issue an update. Thanks!
Thank you so much!!!
Nothing new that I would use but great to hear your voice! lol 🙂
Thank you, Matt. Appreciate your sharing your knowledge about the latest LR changes with us. Your show and tell teaching style makes it easy to comprehend and retain the information that you share.
So grateful for your excellent explanation of the LR updates. Always informative.
Thank you so much for your LR update videos! I always watch them after updating LR!
As usual, very informative and helpful. TY, TY, TY.
I am on 9.3, Win 10, PC, and the upper left Lr Logo remains Lr vs LrC.
Hi. Not sure about that one.
Thank you Matt. As usual concise and to point you are a great teacher.
Yay!! I LOVE the new hue adjustment in the update! This is very exciting!
I’ve been watching your videos as well and they have been so helpful.
I always look at your videos while I upgrade my software.
Thank you again Matt
Thanks Matt. Always appreciate these videos outlining the updates that come as a result of new versions of the software.
Thanks, Matt, for doing these update videos. I always look for them when we get the dates. I really like the Hue changes.
Matt: came to your products after my film club hosted you for an evening education session. But, thanks for this PSA for LrC. Well done; like your approach.
thank you, Matt
Great video Matt – thanks for keeping me up to date with LR. I have just started a Website project that I need to select 15 good/dynamic images for the client. There are 5,600 plus images from 2008 to Feb 2020. I’m glad I bought your LR & PS training videos earlier this year as I watched the LR Collections again and it gave me some great tips. Thanks again and keep up the great work. Peter
Thank you, Matt. very clear explanation, as always.
Thanks Matt. Excellent video Very helpful
Thank you, Matt! As always, as enjoyable as they are informative and helpful.
Your videos are still my fave.
Thanks Matt, very good intro to changes.
Always love to watch your updates Matt
Thank you Matt … another wonderful tutorial helping to keep your followers up to date.
Thank you, Matt. This overview is very helpful.
Thanks Matt. I always enjoy your update videos, well done.
My PC is still using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Someone told me not to update to 9.3. He cited slideshow and video editing, neither of which I use. Do you need Windows 10 to do this update? Once you go to 9.3, can you go back to 9.2.X?
Hi Kurt. Sorry but I’d have to point you to look or google “Lightroom System specifications” and see what Adobe recommends. As for going back, yes you can always go back to a previous version through your Adobe Creative Cloud updater app. Thanks!
Matt, when you were talking about adaptive ISO adjustments, you picked two images, one at ISO 800 and one at ISO 400. But unless I missed something, you didn’t finish the explanation. Once you have picked the required two images, what does the user or Lightroom do with them? Does it say “match noise reduction” or something? I don’t think you finished the explanation.
Thanks Matt, your tutorials are always very helpful and clearly presented
Lightroom Enhancement Suggestion:
I really wish Adobe would make Content-Aware Fill work exactly the same way it does in Photoshop…
Unfortunately one is an instruction-based non destructive raw editor, and the other is a rendered pixel based editor. It gets kind of techie but they simply don’t work the same and I think it’ll be quite a while before we have the power of content aware that we currently have in Photoshop, in Lightroom too. But hey… those guys are smart so who knows 🙂
Guten Abend, Mattt, very good Information about the update. Thank you for saving your community a lot of time, that does not mean that I don’t have to watch the video a couple of times.
Concise and informative, as always. Thank you, Matt!
Thanks Matt – great update, right to the point and covered all the key details! As always.
Great overview of the new Lightroom features. Thank you for keeping it short and to the point.
Matt, as usual a great discussion of the new stuff in LRc. I recently needed to center something on a photograph – probably the first time in 50+ years of taking photos, and I sure wish I had that 2×2 overlay then.
Matt – Thanks. Very clear explanations.
Thanks for the great overview.
All the new features are great, think the performance enhancement is also great!
Thank you so much for the updates, I certainly will use them.
The adobe folks have certainly lived by continuous improvement.
Thanks for that informative video. Gosh! did not even know, gotta go and upgrade.. Thanks Matt.
Thanks again for the update info. Some really interesting things there.
The new Hue feature is great. But I’m puzzled about the TWO horizontal colour-strips. Clearly the top one is the key one, to which the slider points. But what is the lower one all about?
I agree. I was confused by that too. I thought maybe in the top band you chose the color you wanted to change and in the bottom band you picked the color to which you wish to change it. But when Matt used the slider, it didn’t look as if he was really paying attention to the selected vs the targeted color.
A great overview, thanks Matt. Tim
Great overview of all the new changes,and my favorite all from a photographers point of view…Thanks Matt
Thanks for the information on the update. Earlier this week I was doing some targeted hue adjustment with masks in Photoshop. Today I did the same thing in Lightroom. I found that I could really zero in on the specific color I wanted to change by using a color range mask with my adjustment brush. What a lovely addition.
Hi Matt … these videos on LR and PS changes issued today were, as always, very helpful! Thank you. I will start a new course soon, when I tire of playing with textures! Peggy Berger
