What's new in Lightroom CC?
Lightroom CC was released about 2 months ago and we've just seen the first major upgrade.
Remember that Lightroom CC is the version of the software that's included in the various Adobe Creative Cloud subscription services. These updates won't be found in the standalone version of the software.
The biggest upgrade included in this release is the new Dehaze tool.
To access this tool, go to the Effects section of the Develop Module. There you will find a simple slider. Moving the slider back and forth allows you to add or remove haziness from an image.
Now don't expect miracles from this tool. It can't recover the details of a scene captured in a thick, soupy fog. But it can do a darn good job of removing a moderate amount of haziness.
This Lightroom CC upgrade also includes the addition of white and black sliders to all three local adjustment tools: Gradient Filter, Radial Filter and the Adjustment brush.
These new sliders allow you to adjust the bright and dark areas of your images to give you more control over the contrast.
The newest Lightroom CC upgrade improves its compatibility with Photoshop Elements. Now when you transfer files from Elements, information from the catalog such as ratings and tag data are maintained in Lightroom.
The newest upgrade also includes some improvements in the Lightroom mobile app

For the last several posts, we have been talking about exposure and how we can use it to creatively change the look of our photos. And in our previous post, we looked at using the aperture settings to change the depth of field of an image.
n the last few weeks we have been talking about exposure and the settings that control it.
In this post, we’ll look at the aperture setting, another of the exposure controls, and see how you can use it to enhance your photos, direct focus onto your subject and give your images a sense of dimension.
In our last post, we talked about shutter speed and how it affects the way motion is portrayed in an image.
