Lr6_boxshot_11in 72pdiHello everyone I am so excited I am about to burst with this announcement. So many new enhancements…

With Lightroom 6 use powerful new tools to Merge photos into stunning panoramas and high dynamic range images. Create even more amazing images and take advantage of faster performance. Organize photos more efficiently and share your work more easily. Lightroom is better than ever.



Create natural-looking or surreal images from extremely high-contrast scenes. Using HDR Merge, you can easily combine multiple shots taken with different exposure settings into a single high dynamic range image.

NEW Panorama Merge

Capture super wide fields of view and amazing detail. Photomerge technology lets you stitch together multiple images, including raw files, to create stunning panorama shots.

NEW Performance improvements

Import and perfect your photos faster than ever. Lightroom takes advantage of compatible graphics processors to boost its overall speed, especially when you’re enhancing images in the Develop module.

NEW Facial Recognition

Quickly find images of family and friends, even without metadata tags. You select a face in one photo, and Lightroom searches for that person in all your other images. Categorize and group your photos based on faces.

NEW Advanced Video Slideshows

Create beautiful, polished slideshows using still images, video, and music along with professional effects like pan and zoom.

NEW Improved Web Galleries

Showcase your work in more elegant, engaging, and interactive web galleries. New HTML5-compatible gallery templates work with the widest range of desktop and mobile browsers.

NEW Filter Brush

Precisely control which parts of your image are affected by the Graduated or Radial filters. Now you can use a brush to edit the filter’s mask, adding or subtracting filter effects wherever you want.
