Yesterday Adobe has released Lightroom 8.2.

Main new feature is "Enhance details" that Adobe says it allows improving sharpness up to 30% and reducing artifacts only on RAW images since the functionality is a new demosaicing method of the RAW file. This is not a default process since it is computationally heavy (for example around 15 seconds on a 24 megapixels image with a Windows 64 bit CPU i7-8750H with graphic card NVIDIA GTX 1050) and it's based on Adobe Artificial Intelligence, called Sensei.

We tested this new feature and the increased detail is barely noticeable unless zooming more than 100% and the resulted enhanced image is a 3-4 size bigger DNG file - so not as good as it may seem.

Nikon tethering has also been improved and of course new lenses and cameras support has been expanded.

This new version is listed in our LightPoint Photo Software Database at this link.
