Learn about new features and enhancements in the February 2019 (version 8.2) release of Lightroom Classic.
Enhance details of your raw images
Powered by Adobe Sensei
You can now quickly enhance fine details in your raw images with Enhance Details. By using Enhance Details, you get higher resolution, more accurate rendition of fine details, better preservation of small colors, and reduced moiré patterns and false colors.
To use this feature:
- In the Library or Develop module, select a raw image that you want to enhance.
- From the menu bar, choose Photo > Enhance Details.
- In the Preview dialog that appears, hold down the hand cursor to view the original image and release it to view the effect of Enhanced Details.
- Click Enhance to apply the effect on the image.
Lightroom Classic creates a new enhanced DNG image (with a suffix '-Enhanced' in the original filename) next to the original source file.
For more information, see Enhance fine details in raw images.
Make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements to use Enhance Details.
