Since Apple has discontinued Aperture, offering a highly controversial Photos. App instead, I was happy that there is the Lightroom alternative. The recent software update to sixth version convinced me of this again. Lightroom 6 is not a revolution. For many years now, this software development is rather evolutionary, because the app does its main task very well. However, some rather useful features were added recently. The most important change of Lightroom 6 is that the app has learned to use a discrete graphics card, which led to the great speed increase. The next important feature is the ability to automatically detect the faces. When you first start Lightroom CC the program asks whether to include this feature, and if you enable it, the program begins to scan your library. My twenty thousand photos have been processed somewhere for five hours. Lightroom finds people on the photos and asks you to name them. Due to this you can quickly find people in your library. It is nice that the number of false positives is small. Lightroom 6 also offers HDR feature and panoramas stitching. Both functions are quite simple: you need to choose which photos you want to merge, then select the desired menu item. Lightroom will show a window with the basic settings and after a few seconds you will receive the result. You can save the picture in DNG format. It is also worth mentioning that the slideshow in Lightroom 6 can include photos (with different panning effects), video, and music. And the module for web galleries creating can handle HTML 5.

Pros :

  • Really fast processing of images due to the newest hardware support.
  • Great facial recognition Sync module works fine.
  • If you use Lightroom Mobile, you will immediately see your smartphone photos on the desktop.

Cons :

  • There is still no video editing.

All put together, this new version of Xara Designer Pro X builds upon the earlier release, and adds more features to deliver a compelling release. A very attractive upgrade pricing option makes this a no-brainer for existing Xara users, and for everyone else, this is a product that certainly needs to be explored closely.

With the introduction of Lightroom 4, Adobe has added several useful new tools, and made great improvements in other areas. In this review, I'll take a look at the key new features in Lightroom 4. One of the biggest changes is the reduction in price.
