Adobe released Lightroom 5.3 and Camera RAW 8.3 just a short while ago. Just as with most of these updates the majority of the updates have to do with adding support for new cameras and fixing bugs in the software. If you have CC these updates should be getting kicked out to you soon, if you have anything else you can go to adobe’s website to learn more about updating your software.

  • The Esc key did not exit the slideshow after right clicking screen with mouse during slideshow playing.

We are especially excited about this because it means we can fully process our Nikon Df image samples. So stay tuned in the next few days for some of those to make it onto the site.
