Adobe Lightroom 6 is the most awaited version since the release of Lightroom 5 two years ago. Photographers are excited to experience a whole new and overhauled Lightroom interface. Unlike in the older versions of Lightroom wherein the entire speed performance relies on one CPU. In Lightroom 6, users can expect a GPU acceleration processor, Intel HD graphics, and more responsive GPU speed.
When using HDR merge, the entire procedure of combining two or three images into one took a minute to finish, while the process of panorama merges took almost 5 to 6 minutes to produce the final image outcome.
As expected, most photographers were very satisfied with the speed and performance of the all-new Adobe Lightroom 6. In fact, they were also happy with the updated Radial and Gradient tools which let them adjust different masks with an advanced brush.
Another great addition to the program is its enhanced facial recognition feature wherein users can easily tag people in the image and enjoy default top Lightroom presets. However, if you’ve run out of presets to use, there are several top Lightroom presets available online or in Pinterest, Behance, Deviant Art, Picasa, and Facebook.
Adobe Lightroom 6 Final Verdict
Generally, Lightroom is still the best post processing tool in the market next to Adobe Photoshop. The main features to look forward in LR 6 are the HDR and Panorama merges, facial recognition, advanced gradient and radial and spot healing tool, and other fixed bugs. Lightroom 6 is worth the dime. You can either have the licensed version with a standalone price or the creative cloud monthly plans.
Although there are still some issues on other features, there’s no doubt that Adobe will immediately fix it so that users can have a smooth sailing Adobe Lightroom experience.
