If you haven’t installed it yet, better hold off on installing Lightroom CC 6.2 the update that was released a few days ago. There appear to be a number of stability issues with it.
Here some places to follow what’s going on with this issue:
Apparently there’s an new update from Adobe 6.2.1 that may fix the problem see:
Update 10/9 8 PM Pacific: I agree with Karl’s comment below. Tom Hogatry’s (the Lightroom product manager) apology for the Lightroom 6.2 release is a good place to express you feelings about this issue.
I’m still a little confused as you why Hogatry doesn’t also refer to Lightroom CC 2015.2 as well as Lightroom 6.2. I’ve not upgraded to Lightroom CC 2015.2 yet and I don’t see the alleged fix released this morning (Lightroom CC 2015.2.1) in my creative cloud app. This whole thing is a world class disaster and I don’t see that Adobe understands this yet.
- I’d like to thank Laura Shoe for calling this Lightroom disaster very early and stopping me from even installing the last two Lightroom updates. I subscribe to her site and she recommended not installing the first update almost immediately.
- This disaster is now an issue of the new import process in Lightroom. Scott Kelby over at Lightroomkillertips.com is tracking and explaining this issue as only Scott can do. He’s got a poll on the new import process. Be sure to go take the poll! Hopefully Scott can talk some sense into Adobe. If he can’t convince them to fix the Import process, no one can.
