Что нового в Lightroom Classic 2020

What’s up photographers, how are you doing? Hope all is good, my name is Vitaly and today we are talking about what’s new in Adobe Lightroom Classic 2020 Let’s go. The update aired in the beginning of November and this vid is a bit late. But I thought I better do it than not so here we are. Usually when the software updates to whole new version you would expect some big changes, new cool features. But not with Lightroom. Seems like it is perfect already – nope. To get a new version, you need to launch Creative Cloud app and update it from there. If you have a subscription of course. If not, you can install the trial version from here as well. Otherwise, you can look for websites Jack Sparrow would approve. So, first new thing is Filter color labeled folders and collections. In one of the previous updates we got ability to set color labels not just to photos but also to folders and collections. Now we can also filter folders and collections by color. How it works. For example, you got a lot of folders in your library and you lost in it. Select the folder, right click on it look for Add Color Label to Folder menu and select the color. Now click the magnifier icon over here. Select Color Labels and the color. Now we can see only the folder with that color. Tiny improvement that will help to those who has a huge photo library and who use color labels a lot. Let’s move forward, there is more useful stuff. Multi-Batch Export. Pretty useful thing. How it worked before. Let’s say you have one photo you want to export from Lightroom in three different formats and sizes. Earlier you would need to repeat the export dialog 3 times to do it. Setting all the different formats in each export for just 1 photo. Not very convenient. But now, it is different. Let’s take a look. In new Lightroom you can simultaneously export in different formats and sizes. Let’s say I want to export this photo. Select it, click File ->Export. Let’s create first export preset. Select the folder where you want the files to be saved. I’ll save in Desktop folder. Next, select format. I need DNG file in full size, so I won’t downsize it. On the left click Add to save the export preset. and give it a name. I’ll create second preset. Now I need preview in JPEG format in full quality but in smaller size. I select Image Sizing and choose Resize to Fit by Short Edge. and set the size of it. Click the Add button on the left again to add another preset. Give it a name and done. Now, to export simultaneously in these two formats checkmark both created presets here and click Export. The files will appear in the specified folder. Pretty useful feature that will save you some precious time and deprive some routine from you. Next up is Fill uneven edges of your panorama with the help of Content Aware Fill. It is a feature that Adobe launched in Photoshop some time ago and improved in new Photoshop update. I use it a lot there, and now Adobe bring the mini version of it to Lightroom. What it does. To explain, let’s create panorama. I have these few shot that I specifically took with the idea to combine them into panorama later. Not the best panorama though, you’ll see why. Select all three shots, right click on any. Look for Photo Merge menu. Click Panorama here. The Panorama creation window will open, almost same as before except this little button: Fill Edges. In my case the edges are too bad and uneven, because it’s just three shots. Nevertheless, let’s try. By setting the checkmark here we activate that Content Aware Fill and Lightroom will analyse the photo and based on the content, it will fill the empty edges It just draws takes the pixels from air and draws them here. even though the example here is rather extreme. Click Merge at the bottom to finish our Panorama. Pretty cool, right? But, but looking at what Lightroom’s competitors do, such as Luminar, ON1 Photo Raw, Affinity Photo, Capture One, etc I really want more AI feature right now! But, ok. With our panorama the only thing left is the preset. Let’s add one. For example, this one from my presets pack – Rainisfjara Adaptive 2. and done. Btw, I did a video about my Lightroom presets pack. The link will be on the screen right now. Check it out! Next up, we have new, simplified develop presets and presets group export. I mean develop presets, to color grade the photos not the export presets I talked about earlier. Develop presets. In previous version, if you wanted to share your preset with others you had to look for it god knows where, you had to dig all those folder… oh no. Now you can just right click on the preset. Choose Export and just select the folder where you want to save it. Easy. Same thing with presets folders. Select folder, right click – Export Group and choose the directory. Simplified it, thanks for that! And this is it. No more updates. Expect of course the regular support for new cameras and lenses and other small things. Not much, but whatever. Anyway, thanks for watching! Hit that like button if it was useful. Subscribe to the channel and to my Insta, the link is in description. Throw your comments and most importantly – make, shoot, create! All the best, see you in the next one. Bye-bye! Ah, what… are we recording already? I’m silly:) Make, shoot, create! That was peppy, right? Too peppy! Nope, not good. Remember that already Vitaly! Remember! Remember. Do you remember? Make, shoot, create!
