Lightroom Classic 11.0 has been released today. As Lightroom is subscription software, this isn’t a 11.0 in the conventional sense. Adobe tend to update the main version number annually around the time of Adobe Max and this year is no exception. Of course, new features have been released every few months, rather than having to wait for a single x.0 release. In the last year, we’ve had:
- 10.1 (December 2020) – macOS Big Sur compatibility.
- 10.2 (March 2021) – Performance improvements, Beta Nikon tethering support.
- 10.3 (June 2021) – Native Apple M1 chip support, Super Resolution, Preset changes.
- 10.4 (August 2021) – Duplicate Collection Sets, Nikon Tethered Live View support.
- many mobile and Lightroom Cloud-based improvements, as well as smaller features.
The entire Lightroom cloud-based ecosystem has also been updated today too.
- There are some reports of crashes when using Select Sky or Select Subject. In most cases, updating the graphics card driver from the manufacturer’s website solves this issue.
- There’s a couple of reports of catalogs failing to upgrade which is being investigated, but it’s fairly rare.
The minimum system requirements for Lightroom Classic 11.0 have been updated:
- Windows 10 v1909 or later, or Windows 11.
- macOS 10.15 (Catalina) or later.
