Sneak Peek – Return of the Smart Photos

Isn’t it time for Lightroom users to feel the love? If you are using Lightroom, this is a feature you will love. When you use Photo RAW as a plugin for Lightroom you will be able to edit photos and then come back later and access the settings to re-edit them. This enhancement is coming in the next free update, version 2021.5.

    Great idea! We need Photo Raw and the plugins updated to Universal apps so that they can be used with ACR and LrC when Adobe releases the Universal versions of those apps as they have already done for Ps and Lr. Rosetta II emulation is not a path forward.

    great news ! The plugin we were waiting for. we can now easily add a border, glow, sunshine in a non destructive way.
    what does this psd look like if we open it in photoshop ?
    why using adobe rgb color space instead of prophoto ? isn’t it risky for color shifts coming back to LR ?
    Great thing is that PR2021 has all “modules” in same plugin, included portrait so the whole editing is non destructive. Not the case of Nik 3.3.

      Is this a different approach to Capture One where the plugins are separate apps?

    Sorry – or are the Lr plugins separate apps too?
