Lightroom Classic CC 9.0
Adobe has released Lightroom Classic CC 9.0 with several new features for the desktop-focused photo cataloging and editing application, including Auto Fill Edges for Panoramas and Batch Export with Multiple Presets. When using Photo Merge > Panorama, the new Fill Edges option nows fills the uneven edges of your panorama automatically. The update also enables you to select multiple Export presets to save various versions of selected files at once.
Lightroom Classic CC 9.0 can now filter on a Color Label, lets you export presets in the Develop module, improves performance in the Develop and Library modules, adds an option to clear the history above the selected step in the History panel, enables you to delete multiple images in the Library or Develop module while in Loupe view, and can now preview the post-crop vignette effect live while cropping (with GPU acceleration enabled). The release also adds 25 new camera models and 30 new lens profiles (including the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max). Lightroom Classic CC 9.0 now requires macOS 10.13 High Sierra or later. ($9.99/$19.99/$52.99 monthly Creative Cloud subscription, free update, release notes, 10.13+)
That OS 10.13 requirement is a pretty big gotcha. It’s the sort of thing that causes people to hate, and avoid, updates.
