Great news for Lightroom users: today, Adobe announced another update to the program, confirming that they will be reinstating the old Import dialog, which was replaced by a newer dialog that received harsh criticism for its excessive simplicity and removal of features.
Last week was unexpectedly eventful for Lightroom users. After Adobe issued the 2015.2/6.2 update, many users experienced heavy stability issues that brought their workflows to a halt, while others were upset to find that certain features, such as the option to automatically eject a memory card after an import was complete, were removed. The response was vocal and quick, prompting Adobe to quickly release an update that addressed the stability issues, as well as an apology. Today, Adobe confirmed that they will also be reverting to the old Import dialog in their next release, which will restore the previously removed features and give more granular control over the process. While they have not set a date for this yet, they have released instructions on how to roll back to version 2015.1.1/6.1.1, the most recent version with the previous dialog. Users who are interested in doing so can find those instructions here. I'm personally quite happy to hear this, as I like to save as much time as possible by customizing the import process to my liking and maximizing the work I can automate through it.
