Adobe MAX Announcement (In their words)

Dynamic edits at your fingertips with only one tap

Utilizing advanced machine learning-based AI, you can now create precise selections to identify your photograph’s subject and sky and apply specific edits to them with one tap. Select Subject & Select Sky are game-changers for time-consuming improvements, especially on smaller screens, lowering the barrier to making complex selections. Using artificial intelligence supports you by making careful selections to transform your photos and help you achieve your artistic vision.

Discover the best presets shared by the Lightroom community tailored to your photo’s subject

Find the perfect preset for your photo, created by some of the most creative photographers in the world: the Lightroom community. Lightroom can suggest a selection of presets that will enhance your photograph’s beauty by scanning your image & matching the subject with the presets that will improve your shot. Discover has hundreds of thousands of incredible presets created and shared by our community and can be an excellent springboard for your editing process.


Even more high-quality presets to choose from

After the positive response to the launch of our 7 initial Premium Preset packs in June, we’re excited to expand the Premium Presets in Lightroom! These high-quality presets are created by an expanded pool of talented and diverse contemporary photographers to transform your photos. This new set of Premium Presets includes eight new categories: Black & White, Food, Landscape, Urban Architecture, Lifestyle, Retro, Travel II, and Cinematic II. These gorgeous presets help take your photography to the next level, and with the range of new premium presets — we’re sure there will be something to fit your aesthetic. These new packs will be available across the entire ecosystem, and we’re looking forward to seeing what you create.


Explore and engage with how different community members edit photography

Engage with the Lightroom community in an entirely new way with Community Remix. Share your unique edit with the community, let others try alternative edits, and share their artistic vision with the image. Making space for play encourages entirely new perspectives from across the world — whether that be a stark monochrome edit, a dreamy pastel version, or an evocative moody style. Explore versions of different landscapes far away from your home, experiment with varying subjects of photography, or even other camera lenses. This brand new experience is available on Lightroom Mac & Windows now, and we will be working on bringing this to other platforms soon.
