On April 22nd Adobe announced a new update to Lightroom. It is available as a stand alone perpetual license Lighroom 6 or part of Adobe's Creative Cloud Lighroom CC.
If you are a new to photography and looking for post processing image tool then Lighroom is a "must have". I have been using Lightroom since version 2 and cannot see myself using any other image editing software. The application is designed for photography and getting better and better. This new release is no exception.
The previous version of Lighroom was pretty complete for any photographer of any level of skill from amateure to professional. The list of new features is not extensive but very powerful. Adobe kept the updates short but sweet! I'm always eager to play with new software so I couldn't wait to download the application to my computer.
As a licensed version 5 user, I elected to upgrade to the standalone Lightroom 6 for $79. The new user price is about $149 US dollars. The Creative Cloud version is only $9.99 per month and let's you use both Lighroom and Photoshop. That's a pretty attractive offer for someone just starting.
The download process was pretty standard. Once installed, Lightroom took care of updating my catalog. Most publishing services were restored with a few exceptions.
