Adobe has today launched a version of their photography application in the form of Adobe Lightroom 6 to try and fill the void left by the demise of the Apple Aperture photo editing software. After Apple released their new Photo app with integrated iCloud backup earlier this month.
The latest Lightroom 6 software or Lightroom CC as part of the cloud is available to purchase as standalone desktop-only app for $149 or for $9.99 per month as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan.
Its been two years since Adobe updated the Lightroom software after the launch of Lightroom 5 and Adobe has added a wealth of new features and functionality including advanced video slide shows, the ability to create panoramas, easy HDR images editing, performance tweaks, improved web galleries, visual storytelling, support for more devices and easy photo sharing to name a few. Adobe explains a little more :
“Create amazing images from challenging high-contrast scenes. New HDR Merge lets you combine multiple photos taken with different exposure settings into a single high dynamic range image.
With Lightroom, all your photography is all in one place. You can organize, edit and share your photos from anywhere — on your computer, on the web, on your iPad and on your iPhone or Android devices. You can even have photos from your phone go directly into Lightroom as you shoot them. Syncing takes care of itself, so when you make an edit or flag a favorite in one place, it’s automatically updated everywhere else.”
