Today Adobe released Lightroom 5.5 along with Lightroom mobile for the iPhone. Along with the usual new camera support, new lens profiles, and bug fixes, the free Lightroom 5.5 update includes support for syncing with the new iPhone app, and a few other changes targeted at Lightroom mobile and Creative Cloud subscribers. Watch my video below to see the changes in action, or read on below the video for details.
Creative Cloud subscribers: update through the CC app. Otherwise, to install the free update, if Lightroom doesn’t prompt you to update, go to Help>Check for Updates, download the file, then double-click on it to run the installation wizard. If Check for Updates doesn’t find the update, try again later or download the update at the link at the bottom of this page. As with all updates, I highly recommend backing up your catalog before updating.
