latest LR update released today but apparently there are a few dramas

And; and the idiots have remove the "don't import suspect duplicates" option. Now that is dumb. Meant to make it easy/less confusing for newbies :confused:. Just dumb more like it!!

I've yet to update mines.
The Dehaze function as an adjustment brush is a big plus.
It will save me from having to work around it by exporting two images into Photoshop and messing around with layer masks.
So much easier now.

Admit leaving out the "don't import suspect duplicates" option is a mistake that I hadn't noticed - thanks for the heads up

How did you do DeHaze in Photoshop?

I had to export a "Dehazed" version and "non Dehazed" version of an image into Photoshop as layers and erase the parts I didn't want Dehazed on a Layer Mask, Ian

There are good LR and Photoshop tutorials from Julianne Kost here (http://www.jkost.com/lightroom.html), she also shows how to use the dehaze in LR using the adjustment brush and the graduated filter.

Julieanne is good to lesson to; and watch

this is a handy free book (http://www.lightroomqueen.com/quickstart/) for those battling to understand LR

I've been having lots of problems with the updated Lightroom. If it's open it crashes even if I'm not using it. I'm running it on an iMac with Yosemite. I'd held off upgrading to El Capitan to see if there were any issues, but I'm wondering if Lightroom would be more stable.

The latest Lightroom update has been the worst adobe has ever released.
They have actually apologised for the quality.

The site below gives a good summary of the situation.

I think there were a few issues with the original update causing crashes etc
Mines was running really slow
There has been a further update that will hopefully fix this
It seems to be running faster and smoother but haven't had the chance to really test it yet

There does seem to be ongoing issues with the new LR version even after the hastily released bug fix. I had major problems during printing via LR and PS which wasted two expensive sheets of Platinum Baryta paper as it crashed Windows.

The error in the logs pointed to memory problems so I ran the Windows memory checker, which is very low down and thorough, and have had no more problems. In the past I have seen such diagnostics fix problems and this could be the case here although that is certainly not proven but if it is the case does not point to the LR/Adobe RAW updates being the problem.

So very inconclusive.

On the LR update side though I'm not sure I like the new look import. I'm sure I'll get used to it but at the moment I'm very unconvinced.

i still have LR5 and for some reason keywording actually kills the ASUS i7 (??)
That causes enough dramas so I'm not in any hurry to get LR6/CC.

I've had no issues with LR or PS CC versions with the recent updates. The new import screen takes a bit of getting used to but I don't think the changes are as bad as some folk are making it out to be, on the Luminous Landscape forum you would think the end of the world has occurred with the import interface changes.

strange how we dislike change so much many are not willing to give the new way a go

I understood that commands that people relied on, were removed. In which case it's not surprising people don't want it.

I hate it when new versions of things become harder to use because of dumbing down for lightweight users.
