After a premature announcement yesterday, Adobe today officially released its August Photography update for Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw. The update doesn’t add new features but as Adobe describes is “focused on performance and improving your workflow.” There are significant little improvements, the most intriguing being the addition of GPU Accelerated Editing.

This update for Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Camera Raw allows the software to take advantage of more powerful graphics cards (GPUs) while editing, which will result in a smoother and more responsive editing experience.

Adobe says the performance gains from GPU acceleration will be more pronounced for users working on 4K (and higher resolution) monitors, as well as systems with more powerful GPUs.

I’m not sure if it’s placebo, but Lightroom does feel a tad snappier after the update.

Performance boosts aside, both Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Camera Raw gain PNG export support. 

Lightroom Classic CC also received updates to the Library Module for improved navigation through folders, as well as Color Labels for Collections and batch processing for HDR and panorama merges.
