Adobe Updates Lightroom and Camera RAW (and Bridge)

Adobe has today release a major update to their Lightroom apps. They have also added support for the latest cameras and lenses to Adobe Camera RAW (now 10.1). As usual, the update also addresses and fixes a few minor issues.

Enhanced Auto

Now this looks pretty cool, and intelligent. Some may like it and others not so much. Enhanced 'Auto' will automatically apply the best edits in your photos. 

New in this release of Adobe Camera Raw

Start your Camera RAW edits with Auto. This uses "Adobe Sensei" to intelligently apply adjustments based on any of your photo’s light and colour characteristics.

Adobe's new "Auto" feature now uses an advanced machine learning. It uses this to automatically apply what it thinks are the best edits for these slider controls in your photos:

The Auto feature can also optimize the adjustments of the photo even after you have cropped it to any degree.

The Neural Nets!

Its underlying neural nets have been pre-trained with thousands of professionally photographed and manually edited shots to evaluate and correct any image. Pretty much like a skilled human photographer like yourself would.

Adobe Updates

I must say it does a pretty good job and is not dissimilar to HDR toning (hover cursor to see THE "AUTO" effect - On mobile? Click inside and outside of the image):
