Adobe released an update to Lightroom 6 moving to Lightroom 6.2. Unfortunately, the bug I have most concern with wasn't fixed. Since Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC 2014 and 2015, the Soft Proof feature has a bug. When examining a file the RGB numbers displayed in the histogram window are wrong. They do not match the numbers in Photoshop, which are correct, and the do not match the same files numbers in Lightroom 5.7.1. Adobe has been aware of this bug since April of this year. Still not fixed.

Dehaze as a local adjustment is a fantastic addition. I like the Dehaze effect but it's often quite strong on the whole picture, the ability to brush it in selectively will make it much, much more useful to me.

The bug I don't like is that all your plugins need to be reinstalled when they move versions.
This is a pain in the butt.
Is that the case with this upgrade too?
Dehaze as a local adjustment is a good addition.
I'm not overly impressed generally with Dehaze. It's a bit bluey and could be achieved already by messing with the other sliders.
There is alot more things they could improve upon.
I'd like them to put in a light ray function, variable intensity and angles.
I know you can do it in photoshop but not too easily/quickly.

Do you know if this update fixes the problem with OS X El Capitan ?
Waiting before upgrading my mac with it. I prefer to keep Lightroom totally usable.

Thank's in advance for your answer. ;-)

De-haze ...

yes, Adobe ... just keep rubbing it in. I will still never RENT your software. And if you guys withhold features, I will also not BUY anything from you - like LR 6. All my current cameras are supported by LR 5.7 and my next camera upgrade is likely 2+ years out ... unless Canon brings a FF mirrorless system before then. :p ;D

It seems that all the new Adobe LR major releases are buggy. I waited until LR 5.6 before upgrading from L4.x. I am doing the same thing with LR 6. It is just too frustrating and wastes too much time diving in on the initial release.

Ugh. I find software that goes out and searches your entire drive(s) structure(s) for compatible file types quite annoying. There's nothing explicit or clear about it. Deliberately choosing what to import is explicit and clear.

When I went from 5.7 to 6.0, and later to CC, I didn't have to reinstall any plugins.

+100 to that,even though I am on 6.
You call this a new version? An upgrade? Nothing new in here other than some lens profiles.
How about something simple like an auto-tone function that works as well as it does in Elements (and most other cheap or free programs)?

you can disable this. Here's a video review of the new import process which goes into quite a bit of detail that should be helpful understanding the differences and the options.

+10000000 Wow - must be the worst "upgrade" idea for LR ever. "We take control of your computer's 30TB and will waste tons of time and cpu power scanning it all in one gigantic confusing lump so you do not have to click the "Import this" icon that pops up when you insert a CF card anymore" ????

That suits Adobe just fine, you are not the kind of customer they want. Bye.

Re: Adobe Releases a buggy Lightroom 6.2 WARNING !!

If you are running LR on a Mac I would suggest not installing this update until problems are sorted out. I installed on a Macbook Pro running OSx 10.11 and have had nothing but problems. Crashes on import, etc. etc. Haven't managed to sort it out yet so may end up having to revert back to previous version which will be royal PIA.

The import screen is completely changed as well, it can be turned off but a less than smooth upgrade in my experience.

LOL. Yes. Most successful businesses try to limit the "kinds" of customers that purchase their products. If EVERYONE bought their stuff, they might run out of places to put all their money.

Nor will I. What does everyone else use for PP photos that is a stand-alone product?

I just updated to 6.2 (non-CC), and the local dehaze is indeed not available.

HOWEVER... The global dehaze feature can actually be enabled in Lightroom 6, through a workaround. (The code for it is all there, it is just missing the UI elements). All you have to do is install these presets and the global dehaze feature is available to you:

Re: Adobe Releases Lightroom 6.2 & CC 2015.2

No Canon 50mm 1.8 STM support still. Lens correction profile defaults to 50mm 1.2L and you have to manually change it to 50mm 1.8 II, which I finally saved as a preset. ???
Also I can not find the FD and Ai, Ai-s profiles for my MF lenses... maybe this is just for the CC version again?
