Thursday morning I got a question from Eric in Florida asking if he should install the new update for Lightroom. At the time I had not even heard of it. Apparently the East Coast gets it before the West Coast. Later in the day, I got an email from Laura Shoe explaining the new update. LauraShoe.com is my go-to site for keeping up with Lightroom. She was the first to warn every one of the Lightroom disaster a while back.
Here is Laura’s post on what’s new in Lightroom 6.5.1 and 2015.5.1. If you are a Nikon shooter you should probably also have a look at her explanation of how to get your lens Metadata back if you are a Nikon shooter.
As I told Eric, if you depend on LR every day, you should never update when an update like this comes out. Always better to wait a few weeks and watch sites like Laura’s and make sure there aren’t any big issues.
I installed this update today and haven’t noticed any issues. Anyone have any issues with this update?
