You’ve come back from a trip, and you’ve loaded your travel photos from your memory cards onto your computer. What next? Adobe Community Professionals Melissa Piccone, Jesús Ramirez, Theresa Jackson and I walk through some of our favorite Photoshop and Lightroom tips for travel photos. My segment, which is about creating panoramas in Photoshop and Lightroom, starts about 30 minutes into the recording. But it’s worth watching all four presenters.

Note: Watching the recording requires the Adobe Connect web browser add-in, which is available on Macs and Windows PCs but not on all desktop and mobile platforms. (My understanding is that when an Adobe Connect presentation is live, you can watch it on any devices listed in the Adobe Connect system requirements.)
Adobe has released Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.1 and 6.1, Adobe Camera Raw 9.1, and a corresponding DNG Converter 9.1 update. There’s also a Lightroom Mobile 1.5 update, as well as Photoshop CC 2015.1. All are free updates for current licenses of the software; update links are at the end of this article. The Lightroom and Camera Raw updates include the usual new camera profiles and lens profiles, and fix a number of bugs, and the Creative Cloud versions add new features. For more details, go to:
Lightroom 6 is available now, with performance enhancements and other new features. Read on for additional information and answers to some questions that aren’t always addressed by the general media coverage of this release.
You’ve got a photo that looks great on the camera display, but when you open it on your computer the image looks ruined, as if someone applied a glitch effect to it. Don’t panic! You might be able to save the picture.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw have two sets of controls for making tone and contrast adjustments: The Basic panel Tone sliders and the Tone Curve. Because the slider names in these two sets of tools are almost the same, some believe that both sets of sliders do the same thing, while others believe the newer Basic Tone sliders are better and there is no longer a need for the Tone Curve. But neither statement is true: A closer look reveals that each set of controls affects your images in subtle but important ways.
