#119–Lightroom 6 Wish List

Lightroom 6 Wish List

Nothing official from Adobe, but some quick math says we must be getting close to a Lightroom 6 Beta. Here is what we wish is in Lightroom 6.

While we have not seen anything official from Adobe just yet, some simple math indicates we are not far off from a beta version of Lightroom 6.


Lightroom Version Beta Release Date Final Release Date Release to next beta
v1.0 None that we could find February 2007 N/A
v2.0 April 2008 July 2008 14 months
v3.0 October 2009 & March 2010 June 2010 15 months
v4.0 January 2012 March 2012 19 months
v5.0 April 2013 June 2013 13 months
v6.0 September 2014 est December 2014 est 15 months


As you can see, the release to next version beta is fairly consistent, fluncation between 13 and 19 months.  If we use an average of 15 months, then the next beta should out around September.  One thing that does give me pause is the math results in a December release, something we have not seen Adobe do with Lightroom so far.  This could point to a beta later in the year, say November and a final release in February or March of 2015.

Regardless of the beta or final release dates, we all have our wish list of what we hope is included in the next version.  Here are mine:

  • Improved performance – GPU assistance?
  • Better network support – allow network users to share catalogs
  • Add a loupe feature like the one in Bridge
  • Improved gamut clipping warnings and the ability to edit in other color profiles
  • Radial filter in different shapes
  • Ability to add keyboard shortcuts to presets
  • HSL adjustments in the adjustments brush and the radial filter
