Achieve crisp detail and improved color rendering in raw images that is powered by Adobe Sensei.
Starting with Lightroom Classic 10.3 (June 2021 release), Enhance Details is renamed to Raw Details.
Use Enhance to improve image quality
Enhance provides a set of features such as Denoise, Raw Details and Super Resolution to help improve image quality using Camera Raw.
Watch this video to learn how to use the new AI Denoise in Lightroom Classic.
- Denoise helps remove noise easily from an image. Using artificial intelligence, any Bayer or X-Trans RAW files can be processed to reduce noise without losing the image's fine details.
- Raw Details, previously called Enhance Details, produces crisp detail, improved color rendering, more accurate renditions of edges, and fewer artifacts. Raw Details is especially useful for making large prints, where fine details are more visible. This feature applies to raw mosaic files from cameras with Bayer sensors (Canon, Nikon, Sony, and others) and Fujifilm X-Trans sensors.
- Super Resolution helps create an enhanced image with similar results as Raw Details but with 2x the linear resolution. This means that the enhanced image will have 2x the width and 2x the height of the original image or 4x the total pixel count. This feature supports the same file types as Raw Details, plus additional file types such as JPEG and TIFF. Super Resolution is especially useful to increase the resolution of a cropped image.
Starting Lightroom Classic April 2023 (Version 12.3), Enhanced images will have a badge Grid and Filmstrip views. The new file created will have Enhance-NR, Enhance-SR or Enhance-RD as filenames for Denoise, Super Resolution and Raw Details, respectively. Also, For easy identification of the settings used, a History step with the name "Enhance-NR-<amount> (timestamp)" will be visible.in
You can automatically add Keywords to images enhanced using Denoise, Raw Details,and Super Resolution. Go to Edit > Preferences, select the File Handling tab and check the Automatically add keywords to Enhanced images box. Select OK to make the changes.
Minimum system requirements
Your computer must meet the following minimum technical specifications to use the Enhance features:
- (Mac) macOS Mojave (version 10.14) or later
- (Windows) Windows 10, version 1903 or later. See Windows 10 update history for details.
Enhance heavily uses the available GPU and can use an external GPU (eGPU) if available. View the graphics processor acceleration requirements in Lightroom Classic system requirements.
From the menu, select Photo > Enhance or select Denoise in the Detail panel.
Select Denoise to enhance your image. Holding Alt or Option key while selecting Denoise from the Detail panel will set the intensity of the slider to the last set Amount value.
Use the slider to adjust the intensity of the feature.
You can press and hold on to the preview area to view the changes made to the image.
Click Enhance to process the image as a new DNG file. The new file will be with Enhance-NR filename.
- Denoise can run only on Bayer and X-Trans RAW images.
- We recommend to Denoise your image before applying other tools, including AI masks and Content-Aware, as using Enhance might change the result of the tools used.
- Once the image has been enhanced with Denoise or Super Resolution, it can't be processed again. However, enhanced Raw Details DNGs can be processed with Denoise.
- Denoise is a GPU intensive feature. Therefore, a faster GPU is recommended to Enhance images quickly.
Apply Raw Details
Do one of the following:
- Ctrl-click (on Mac)/right-click (on Windows) the image and select Enhance.
- From the menu bar, choose Photo > Enhance.
In the Enhance Preview dialog box, ensure that Raw Details is selected. Click-and-hold the hand cursor to view the original image and release it to preview the enhanced image. You can also hold down and move the hand cursor to preview the before and after effects on different regions of the image.
Click Enhance to create an enhanced DNG version of your photo.Megjegyzés:
You can choose to stack the enhanced image with the original image by selecting Create Stack. The enhanced image is saved as a new DNG file with the filename in this format: 'Original filename-Enhanced-RD.DNG' and is placed next to the source image.
