EDIT: I have removed the link to the website – his post is great, and I’d had good experiences with this website before, but he has a bait and switch link for free presets, that leads to a SALE page. I have NO respect for that – so although I appreciate his email, I will no longer endorse his site!
This past week, Adobe released a bunch of updates, with some EXCELLENT new features for Adobe Lightroom CC. However, an email from LightroomPresetShoppe.com an excellent resource for some very cool Lightroom presets, has sent out a warning for Lightroom Classic CC users to HOLD OFF on updating until the next version, if you do use presets and keep them organized. Here’s their message, and hopefully, we’ve caught you in time (my recommendation – never do run updates as soon as they come out – watch forums, and wait to let OTHERS “beta test” the update). In fact, there’re a lot of threads on this on the Adobe Lightroom forum at https://forums.adobe.com/community/lightroom/lightroom-classic-cc/content
Here’s the content of that email:
How have you been? Hope you are doing great 🙂
This week…Adobe Lightroom had a major update & I just wanted to write to you guys about my thoughts on the same.
The general consensus about the update is very promising & exciting.
But…if you haven’t updated Adobe Lightroom Classic CC to the latest version i.e. 7.3…I would highly recommend you to wait until the next update even though this update has been an exciting one!
1. The new update has made Adobe Lightroom a little bit slower for quite a lot of users & most importantly
2. This update has completely messed up the order of Lightroom Presets inside a Preset Folder / Group!
Q. What does this mean to you?
A. Simply put…if you have downloaded or purchased any presets either from us or any other Preset Vendor, you will observe that the order of the presets is completely messed up.
Ever since the new update…a lot of adobe forum threads have been opened up to report the preset order bug & the speed & performance issues.
The amazing engineers at adobe have already made a note of the same & have ensured that they are working towards fixing the above issues in the upcoming updates.
So we highly recommend you to wait until the above issues get sorted via the next few updates.
We are keeping a close watch on the updates & once everything looks good…we will inform you guys to go ahead with the update.
Until then…please hold on to updating Adobe Lightroom to the latest version.
In case you have already updated to Adobe Lightroom 7.3…there is not much you can do to correct the order of your presets in Lightroom at the moment.
Your best bet is to wait for adobe to release new updates which will fix the issue that a lot of people are facing with the latest version.
That’s it for now.
We hope that this gets sorted out real soon 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend & talk soon!
