Adobe just released the final standalone version of Lightroom. With the new 6.14 update, the era of new non-subscription versions of Lightroom has come to an end.
Lightroom 6.14 doesn’t bring any new major features. Instead, it improves camera and lens compatibility as well as fix some bugs that existed.
“The goal of this release is to provide perpetual customers additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom,” Adobe says.
As Adobe announced in October, this version is the final update Lightroom 6 will ever receive, and Lightroom 6 is the final standalone version of Lightroom that Adobe will be releasing.
Lightroom 6 may not be compatible with future cameras’ raw files. If you’re intent on sticking with Lightroom 6, though, there’s a path forward for you: future cameras will be supported for Lightroom 6 and other legacy Adobe software using the free Adobe DNG converter.
For the latest in Lightroom features and functionality, you’ll need to start paying for a subscription through Adobe’s Creative Cloud. The Photography Plan currently costs $10 per month.
