Adobe Lightroom 5.7 Update Released

adobe_logo_large.jpgAdobe has just released Version 5.7 of their popular photo editing software, Photoshop Lightroom. You can download this update directly, or via the upgrade option within earlier Lightroom versions. Version 5.7 includes additional RAW camera file support, new lens profiles, and corrects some bugs reported with earlier versions. 

Camera Rumors notes that v5.7 adds support for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, PowerShot G7 X, and PowerShot SX60 HS, along with four Canon EF mount lenses from Zeiss, Sigma, and Tokina.

Below are the update notes from Adobe:

Upgrade Notes
  • To update your Lightroom 1, Lightroom 2, Lightroom 3 or Lightroom 4 catalog simply launch Lightroom 5 and you will be able to select and upgrade your previous Lightroom catalog.
  • The Lightroom 5 catalog upgrade process does not erase or remove your previous Lightroom catalogs. If you wish to try the Lightroom 5 30-day trial by upgrading your existing catalog, you may always return to earlier versions of Lightroom and continue using your previous catalog.
  • NOTE: Any changes or work completed in your catalog once it has been upgraded to work with Lightroom 5 will not be available in previous versions of Lightroom.
  • NOTE: The upgrade process will modify the image preview information of an upgraded catalog.(This information is stored in the .lrdata file that is located adjacent to a catalog file in the file system) Returning to a previous version of Lightroom will require that the previews be re-rendered. This can be a lengthy process for those with hundreds of thousands of images.
  • Upgrading a Library from Photoshop Elements 6, Photoshop Elements 7, Photoshop Elements 8, Photoshop Elements 9, Photoshop Elements 10, or Photoshop Elements 11 for Windows requires that Photoshop Elements be installed on the computer at the time of upgrade.
  • Upgrading a Library from Photoshop Elements 9, Photoshop Elements 10, or Photoshop Elements 11 for Mac requires that Photoshop Elements be installed on the computer at the time of upgrade.
  • Lightroom 5 Beta catalogs may be upgraded using the same methods available for Lightroom 1, Lightroom 2, Lightroom 3, or Lightroom 4 catalogs.
  • If you attempt to upgrade the same Lightroom catalog more than once, Lightroom will inform you of the location of the previously upgraded catalog.

General Program Notes

Known Issues
  • Norton Antivirus 2012 incorrectly flags video related program files in Lightroom 5 as possible threats. Please instruct Norton Antivirus 2012 to exclude Lightroom 5 files from its scan.
  • McAfee Virus Scan prevents emails from being sent from Lightroom 5. Please instruct McAfee Virus Scan to exclude Lightroom 5 files from its scan.
  • • AVCHD support is limited to MTS and M2TS video files. Dedicated video editors (such as Premiere Pro) may need the AVCHD file structure to process the files.
