    <p>Reference View is a new view mode available in the Develop Module that allows you to compare 2 different images in order to make them visually consistent.  This is helpful when making a group of images from a single event look similar or setting the white balance appropriately in mixed lighting conditions.</p>
    <p>To get started,</p>
    <ol>
    <li>Go to the Develop Module</li>
    <li>Click on Reference View.  Its on the Toolbar, and you may need to show the Toolbar if hidden</li>
    <li>Drag and Drop your Reference Photo onto the left pane.  You can change your Reference Photo by either dragging a different image onto the left pane or using the “Set as Reference Photo” context menu in the Library Module.</li>
    <li>Edit the active photo. Use the Reference Photo to guide your editing decisions.</li>
    </ol>
    <p class="p1">Click <a href="https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/help/applying-adjustments-develop-module-basic.html#reference_view">here</a> for more information on Reference View.</p>

    <p class="p1"><strong>Performance Improvements</strong></p>
    <p class="p1">Lightroom CC (2015.8) / 6.8 includes ‘under-the-hood’ changes designed to improve the responsiveness of your Lightroom experience.  You should notice improvements in image editing responsiveness when background tasks (such as Preview Generation) are running, moving files between folders, running catalog backups.</p>
    <p class="p1"><strong>Fit/Fill Improvements</strong></p>
    <p class="p1">You can now zoom to fit and zoom to fill.  Particularly when using ultra high-resolution (i.e. 4K and 5K) monitors, prior versions of Lightroom would not completely fill the Loupe window.</p>
    <p class="p1"><strong>Additional Features</strong></p>
    <ul>
    <li class="p1">Ability to filter or create a Smart Collection for images that have Snapshots associated with them.</li>
    <li class="p1">Export a Collection Set as a new catalog.</li>
    </ul>

    no update available yet. Presumably it will come on line later

    website still doesn't mention it https://www.adobe.com/uk/products/photoshop-lightroom/features.html

    I could simply click "Check for App Updates" in the creative cloud window and then the update appeared :)

    Not for me. As an LR user that was obviously the first thing I tried.

    Probably regional. The UK website still has no mention of it, and updates perhaps not available till tomorrow

    Still even after update LR crashes like crazy, even while moving between modules Lr keeps crashing. Adobe has F_____ up Lightroom and thanks to CC dont seem to be too keen on keeping offline software in works for far too long. Soon it will be Adios Adobe and hello On1.

    Its never crashed for me in the past two years.

    Don't blame Adobe for your computer issue.

    Reference view seems moderately useful, however this will be nice to have fixed:

    "Map and Web modules do not work correctly with 4K UHD monitor"

    OK, so you get the top cpu/motherboard combo, install an insanely expensive graphics card to enjoy an equally overpriced 4K view of your 5DSR pictures - and then this...

    Was driving me crazy until I found out it was a bug.

    I updated last night and had two crashes, when moving between modules. Running CC version and never had crashes before :(

    Its not just me but also many of my friends have been complaining of same issue. Also I have Intel 6 core CPU, 32Gigs of Ram, 1TB SSd and 2*4TB HDDs in RAID 1(where I keep my photos/videos) and Nvidia GTX 970. I dont think my PC should be cause of concern right now.

    Rarely crashes are due to hardware issues (unless the hardware is really faulty - it may happen more often with cheap components - or used beyond specs, i.e. extreme overclocking), most often are due to software issues. There's a lot of bad software around (especially on Windows) that will create issue when installed, and sometimes even when removed (I recently encountered an antivirus that re-routed some system functions to inspect other applications using them, but when removed didn't restored them correctly...). Unluckily, anti-piracy software can sometimes lead to issues as well.

    I have a policy of keeping the PC I use for important tasks as cleaner as possible. Only the software needed for such tasks, and little else. This way crashes on that system are very, very rare.

    It is also important to keep the system up-to-date. I guess Adobe doesn't test on systems which are not (at least, I hope).

    I downloaded last night and played with the 'reference mode' and think it is fantastic. I know in six months I'll wonder how I ever lived without it, best part I have seen so far is that the cursor has two values, one from each image, now that is super useful. Great addition to the program.

    I have never had crashing issues.

    For those unhappy with Adobe, leave, they really don't care and you have several good viable options now that don't involve subscriptions.

    NO, we have PAID for our Adobe products. We don't have to LEAVE, we have every RIGHT to DEMAND proper and decent products and service from our software supplier Adobe. Unfortunately they seem neither able nor willing to get their act together with LR.

    No, you paid for this month, you get service this month. If you want more than Adobe provide tough, go buy On1, Capture One, Afinity etc etc.

    Pissy little one man band photographers have never been a key market for Adobe and I see no reason for that to change. All they do is whine and bitch about what they are 'owed', meanwhile the true creative company market, the ones that actually pay decent license fees can't get enough of the Adobe love and constant upgrades.

    If photographers were truly important to Adobe they would show it, but look at where the development goes, there are Suite upgrades nearly every week............

    Yep..once they lock you into the "rental" mode...they don't need to care.

    They have your money and have your work hostage....so, you just keep paying and live with it.

    Welcome to the world of rental software.

    Not really, you choose to take advantage of the rental model or you buy other software, or in the case of LR you buy the stand alone perpetual license for $149 (at most).
