Enhance Details


Adobe has dropped an update for its catalogue of photography-related products which includes Camera RAW, Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC (for Mac, Windows, Android, ChromeOS, and iOS). 

There's a new AI (Sensei-powered) feature available called 'Enhance Detail' which, with some clever algorithms, can increase the resolution of an image. For those who like to know a bit more about the technology behind it, Adobe says that the feature focuses on Demosaicing which, they say,  is 'an integral process to raw processing and works at the pixel level, converting the information captured by a camera into something that looks like the photos we all expect to see'. 

"The new Enhance Details algorithm enables you to increase the resolution of both Bayer and X-Trans based photos by up to 30%. Enhance Details works on any RAW file apart from files converted to a linear raw file, HDR or Panorama merged files (though you can apply Enhance Details to the ingredient files first and then merge), smart proxies, lossy compressed DNGs, or DNGs saved with 1.1 compatibility," explains Adobe. 

"Applying Enhance Details to your photos can greatly improve fine detail rendering, improve the reproduction of fine colours, and resolve issues that some customers reported with their Fujifilm X-Trans based cameras," says Adobe. 

In addition, Adobe has added HDR, Pano, and HDR Pano merge tools, the Target Adjustment Tool and histogram clipping indicators to Lightroom CC for Mac/Windows.

Those who use Lightroom on iOS devices will now be able to create an online share of photos with an arbitrary assortment of photos. Instead of creating an album and sharing that album, you can now select any number of photos that you want to share, tap the 3-dot menu at the top-right of the screen, and then select Share to Web. Like any other web share, you can control whether people that you share that link with can download or see the photos’ metadata.


Lightroom Classic updates - improved tether performance and stability with Nikon cameras


Behind-the-scenes updates have also been made in preparation of new features that Adobe says will be coming soon. These updates have also been applied to the Android and ChromeOS versions of the software. 

Lightroom Classic users who also own Nikon cameras will be happy to hear that tethered performance has been improved to give you the same speed and stability as Canon cameras after the October 2018 release. 

All of the apps have also been updated to support new cameras/lenses and several bug fixes have been applied.
