Adobe Brings Video Editing to Lightroom

Posted on June 14, 2022 by Paul Thurrott in Music + Videos with 1 Comment

Adobe today announced several updates to Lightroom and Lightroom Classic. Key among them is video editing on Windows, Mac, and mobile.

“The Adobe photography team is excited to announce the latest updates to Lightroom and Lightroom Classic,” Adobe’s Benjamin Warde writes in the announcement post. “These releases begin rolling out today and will be available to everyone by the end of the week.”

Key updates include:

Video editing. Lightroom is picking up a wide range of video editing features, including the ability to copy and paste between photos and videos, AI-powered presets, and more.

Presets improvements. Lightroom’s photo-based presets are getting a new Preset Amount slider, AI-Powered Adaptive Presets, and new Premium Preset packs.

Red-eye removal. This may seem like a weird addition in 2022, but the improved red-eye removal feature now uses AI to automatically remove all of the red eyes in a picture with one click.

Compare View. On Windows and Mac, you will be able to view photos side by side to help you pick out the best one.

There’s a lot more. Check out the original post for more information and a related Adobe post describing other improvements across Photoshop and Photoshop on the web.

    I used to be a big user of light room. Being forced to a subscription pushed me to Affinity.

    I like(ed) Lightroom, but the cost was too high for a casual user like me
