Adobe Updates Lightroom CC to Kill the Crash Bug


A couple of days ago, Adobe acknowledged that a nasty bug in Adobe Lightroom CC was causing slowdowns and crashes that were being reported across the Web. If you’ve been pulling your hair out over the issue, there’s good news today: a fix has arrived.

Adobe just released an update to Lightroom that fixes the crash problem.

Lightroom CC 2015.2.1 and Lightroom 6.2.1 can be downloaded by clicking the “Check for Updates” item in the dropdown Help menu. You can also find the update within your Creative Cloud app.

The new program should have improved performance with Lightroom’s revamped Import system as well.

Update: As you can see in the comments below, some photographers seem to be finding that the update hasn’t fixed very much.
