The new Lightroom final standalone version, including the new 6.14 update has been published by Adobe. This means that there will be no more new non-subscription version of Lightroom.
The final standalone does not bring major features, but it improves camera and lens compatibility. It also brings some bug fixes.
Adobe released a statement explaining that the purpose of the new update was to ensure customers enjoy additional camera raw support and lens profile support. After this update, there will be no more improvements for Lightroom 6. The announcement came in October.
What about compatibility?
It is very likely that Lightroom 6.14 will not be compatible with all camera raw file. The solution for the future might be to use the free Adobe DNG converter.
Those who want to receive the latest Lightroom features, the paying subscription is a monthly plan of 10$ for the Photography Plan through Adobe Creative Cloud.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
This image organization and manipulation software was developed for macOS and Windows operating systems. The first time Adobe introduced Lightroom was in February 2007. This system allows users to view, organize and edit a large number of images.
Lightroom’s edits cannot be destroyed, but Adobe Photoshop cannot remove or alter the appearance of individual images.
It is important not to confuse Lightroom’s abilities with Adobe Bridge. Lightroom cannot operate files if they are not updated into its database.
Adobe’s Lightroom family consists of Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC.
The latest Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC, version 7.0, was released on the 18th of October this year and it is not available using a perpetual license. As mentioned, those interested have to pay a monthly fee and when a subscriber stops paying; he or she will be able only to view existing catalogs.
