Adobe Lightroom 6 Release Date Possibly 25th March

Lightroom 6

Looking forward to Lightroom 6 as much as I am? Here are a few facts that could make you look forward to it even more!

Lightroom 6 will only be able to load on 64-bit operating systems and, according to past leaks, will offer a number of new features, including:

  • Face recognition without metadata tagging
  • Merge to HDR for combining multiple photos with different exposures into a single HDR image
  • Fusion panoramas for merging multiple files (including RAW files) to create panoramas in Lightroom
  • GPU acceleration for image editing
  • Sophisticated video slideshows that allow you to combine images, movies and music, along with adding Ken Burns effect to images
  • Optimized web galleries with HTML5 compatible galleries

The Merge to HDR and Fusion Panorama features promise some pretty amazing steps forward for RAW image processing. Both should lean heavily on GPU acceleration for faster processing those edits. Additionally, the face recognition feature, if it works well, will be a major boon to organizing libraries that have maybe gotten out of control over the years.
