We’re expecting an official announcement of Lightroom 6 / Lightroom CC today. For now though, Adorama already has Lightroom 6 available to order.
It is common practice for software companies to stop supporting older operating systems at some point. However, Adobe’s upcoming major Creative Cloud update will require Mac OS X 10.9 or higher to run applications like Photoshop, Premiere Pro and After Effects. OS X 10.9 was released less than two years ago. That is pretty cut-throat for OS support.
Of course, Adobe claims this is all for the good of the user “in order to take advantage of the latest operating system and technologies.” With NAB around the corner, we will probably see what’s under the curtain the next two or three weeks.
Lightroom 6 is a little more lenient and will support OS X 10.8 and above.
Regardless, if you are stuck on an older version of Mac OS X due to support for legacy software apps, then it is time to make a decision about what’s more important to your workflow. Or, at the very least, figure out a dual boot scenario that works for you and your system.
If you want to upgrade, of course, Apple offers a free update to OS X 10.10.
The next major Creative Cloud release is presumed to support at least Windows 7 and up, although Adobe has not officially confirmed that yet. We’ll let you know if that changes.

Lightroom 6 is turning out to be one of the leakiest products Adobe has released in a while. Now, an eagle-eyed reader has spotted the product over on Best Buy’s site with a price of $149.99 for the full version and $79.99 for the Student and Teacher Edition. Both of these prices were expected, as that has been the default pricing scheme for Lightroom version for several years now. [Read more…]
