A few weeks ago we posted that Adobe Lightroom 6 would be released on March 9, 2015, as per an Amazon UK date leak. We were told a couple of days later that this date was incorrect, but we failed to update the post to reflect that. We've seen a second date from an Amazon Japan leak that stated the release date would be March 20, 2015. We cannot confirm this date either.
All that we do know is Adobe has said Lightroom 6 would be released some time in March, so we don't have too long to wait.
Some key features coming in Adobe Lightroom 6:
- Environment nondestructive
Unleash your creativity in a nondestructive editing environment that allows you to test your ideas freely. The originals remain intact and you can easily cancel your edits or save multiple versions of a cliché.
- Advanced conversion feature black and white
Monitor closely the tonal qualities so essential to the black and white photos. Combine precisely the information of eight color layers in the grayscale conversion.
- Face Recognition
Quickly find pictures of loved ones, even without metadata tags. You select a face on the photo, Lightroom and search the person it belongs to all of your other shots. Sort and group your photos by faces.
