Adobe Lightroom Classic 10 Received New Updates

Following the 2021 version of Photoshop, Adobe also released new updates for the Lightroom Classic version 10, bringing some new features and UI improvements.

Despite the popularity of Capture One and similar catalog-based raw image processor software, Lightroom has a large user base and Adobe has been improving the client consistently. It is still the main software for many photographers who prefer to edit their images within a single suite since it is relatively easier, yet powerful compared to other raw processors.

Unlike the exciting features like the Neural Filters that Photoshop 2021 has received, Lightroom Classic 10 comes with more traditional updates focusing on user interface, performance and color controls. In this video, Ted Forbes from the The Art of Photography explains all new features of the latest Lightroom Classic 10 update and demonstrates how to use them effectively.

As Forbes explains in the video, Adobe has been moving the processing to GPU from the CPU; allowing some tasks inside the Lightroom render faster and accelerating the user interface for a smoother experience. With this new update, the new features will benefit from GPU acceleration even more.

You lost me at "Unlike the exciting features like the Neural Filters." Super exciting if you want people to look like video game characters. When will they add the reindeer antlers and disco ball fx to this exciting update?

I find I can do almost all of my image processing using the color wheels and tone curve. Not sure it saves me a lot of time, but interesting

Was really disappointed that LR doesn't support tethering on the Canon R5 yet. So I switched to Capture One which currently supports R5 tethering and live view.

Still slow as f... still no support of the 1DX3 that came out at the beginning of the year. Why am I spending this monthly fee for a software that never improves?

Not really a usable update for most people. Adobe forums are full of issues with this release. I rolled back to 9.4 as well.

"focusing on user interface, performance and..." - are you joking? It is the worst and the slowest Lightroom ever, check the outrage at the Adobe Forums.

I see everyone crying about this and I find these updates outstanding. They are features I will use and have seen absolutely no slow down in the program.

No slow downs for me either, but no improvements in the painfully slow behaviour from before. And no features I will ever need, I don't think that there was anything you couldn't do before these new "colour grading" tools...

Zoom panning with the hand tool starts out fast (it now pans at 60fps) but then becomes janky and hangs for a few seconds if I keep holding the mouse button. Scrubby and Box Zoom work fine though.
