Adobe Lightroom 6.6, CC 2015.6 and Camera Raw 9.6 Released

Adobe has released the Lightroom 6.6 and Camera RAW 9.6 version updates. Adobe Camera Raw 9.6, Lightroom CC 2015.6 and Lightroom 6.6 released with fixing new bugs and adding camera profiles as well as Raw support.

Lightroom CC and Camera Raw 9.6 users also get a new feature called Guided Upright that reduces/eliminates keystone effects in buildings, straightens images and fixes horizons. Guided Upright adds a semi-automated function to an existing feature, using guides drawn by the user to apply perspective corrections.

Along with the bug fixes, Lightroom 6, Lightroom CC adds support for raw files generated by the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II, Leica M-D (Typ 262), Nikon COOLPIX B700 and Panasonic DMC-GX85.
