What's New in Lightroom 6.5.1 and 2015.5.1?

Published: 30/04/2016

LR2015.5.1Thursday 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. 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?

  1. Thanks Larry for putting this post out to our group.
    The update last year was a nightmare and wished I had waited to hear from our members before updating.
