Adobe Releases Lightroom 6.2 and ACR 9.2

Adobe has released Lightroom CC 2015.2 and Lightroom 6.2, along with Adobe Camera Raw 9.2! This release adds a bevy of new features, takes a bunch away, adds camera and lens profiles for some Leica gear - and comes with a big caveat for Apple Mac OS X El Capitan users. In fact, Adobe recommends that these users do not upgrade yet.

Tethering with Nikon & Leica cameras

Tethering Nikon & Leica cameras using Lightroom CC 2015/Lightroom 6 is not currently supported on El Capitan.

We recommend customers who rely on Lightroom for tethering Nikon and Leica cameras not upgrade to El Capitan at this time.
