Lightroom 8.3 is out
« on: May 14, 2019, 10:03:49 am »

Big new feature is a new slider - Texture. For me it's a subtler form of Clarity, like a blend of Clarity and Sharpening, and it's a global or local adjustment. I like to use it at negative values too.

Nothing else of significance, other than changing all the LR app names, again - just to make sure everyone is equally confused.

Not sure about that , John.

Of interest to those using hybrid lens/camera combinations (aka adapted lenses) Adobe has now incorporated their "Flat Field Plugin" within Lr 8.3.  Sean Reid explains all in a comprehensive guide:  https://www.reidreviews.com/examples/flatfieldnew.html

This changes a lot of things. I run Detail in the Detail panel quite high however you lose halo suppression. Just experimenting with setting that back to the factory default of 25. Looks real good so far.

For me the biggest benefit is at negative values as it has a smoothing or blurring effect (as mentioned in the linked article), and also as a local adjustment, for example to blur elements of a background. Give it a try.

Not sure about that , John.
Indeed, there's Flat Field Correction; absolutely doesn't suck:

Auto is supposed to be improved but I don't use it.

Is this similar to C1’s “Structure?”

It appears to be somewhat depending on 'direction' applied. As we see here and here:

https://theblog.adobe.com/from-the-acr-team-introducing-the-texture-control/
https://blog.captureone.com/how-to-enhance-details-with-structure/

And you can do localized adjustments with it in LR.

Brilliant; it's great that FFC has been integrated!
Maybe we'll get colour readouts and 1:1 cropping before 2025 ..giddyup!

Hopefully Adobe will steer well clear of such rabbit holes.

True, it may well be better to keeping it lite.

Thant's great but you can do localized adjustments of any tool in C1 (unlike LR)

That’s great now if they could only work out the DNG issues I keep asking about that seriously kept me from using it in the past after looking it over.
