Adobe Lightroom 6 release date lottery

Now that March has come and gone without Adobe Lightroom being released there has been yet another leak of Adobe’s upcoming photo editing software Lightroom 6 with a date of the 25th of March 21st of April. The software was slated by many rumour sites to be released on the 9th of March, while other leaks claimed the 20th to be the magic date. Now on the Dutch camera tools website a release date of April 21st has been spotted.

Adobe Photoshop LightroomWith so many rumours and leaks one has to wonder whether websites are just trying to gain publicity and traffic by “accidentally” leaking the product page for a short period for people to stumble across so they can feed the rumour mill.

Adobe has remained tight lipped about the exact date of release which seems to have helped to drum up a stir among the rumour sites. One thing is for sure, I will be relieved when it finally gets released so that my twitter feed is full of something else! I am looking forward to the updated software though, which will available at no extra cost to Creative Cloud subscribers.

Some of the key features that I am looking forward to in the new Lightroom release are the upcoming HDR and panorama features, and of course more performance is always a bonus! Lightroom will only work on 64bit operating systems from version 6 which should mean that more resources will be able to be utilised by the program, which will now require at least OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion on Mac or for Windows users 64-bit versions of Windows 7, 8, or 8.1.

**Update

Well the 20th has come and gone and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 still hasn’t made an appearance so the date thrown around of the 25th of March for release now looks much more likely.

***Update2

Well March has gone for another year and there is still no sign of Lightroom 6. New leaks suggest the 21st of April.
