Improved Raw Default Settings

With this release, we have added the ability to easily configure default settings for raw images in Lightroom Classic. The default settings will affect how images are processed during import and can be observed when you click the Reset button in the Develop module. You can set the defaults to the following:

Adobe Default - Uses Adobe default settings

Camera Settings - Uses the in-camera settings or profiles as-shot

Presets - Uses an Adobe or custom preset of your choice

You can apply the settings via:

Master - Applies the selected default for all raw images

Camera - Applies default based on specific camera models

Selecting Show serial number will allow you to specify different settings for multiple cameras of the same camera model based on the serial number.

Set-up and manage raw default settings


Raw default settings made prior to version 9.2 will not be migrated when you update to Lightroom Classic 9.2. All the previous settings for already imported images will be retained but all the default settings will reset to Adobe Color. If you need your previous default settings, it is recommended to configure new default settings after updating to Lightroom Classic 9.2.

For more information, see Set-up raw defaults.

PSB file support

You can now import, catalog, and edit Large Document format (PSB) file in Lightroom Classic. PSB file in Lightroom Classic supports documents up to 65,000 pixels in long edge and a maximum dimension of 512 megapixels. Camera Raw 12.2 is required to use Lightroom Classic's Edit in Photoshop feature with PSB images.

Auto Sync improvements

Now, while making changes to the Develop settings with Auto Sync turned on, the Auto Sync button will be prominently visible. This is to easily and quickly check when Auto Sync is enabled and avoid syncing of Develop settings on all the selected images by mistake. Also, when you hover over the Auto Sync button, a tooltip displays the number of images on which the develop settings will be applied.

A notification is also displayed stating that the setting has been applied to the images.
