Roll back to prior update of Lightroom

  1. Uninstall the current version of Lightroom

    Mac OS:

    Navigate to Applications > Adobe Lightroom > Uninstall Adobe Lightroom and double-click the "Uninstall Adobe Lightroom" executable:

    Uninstall Adobe Lightroom


    1. In the Start menu select Settings.
    2. In Settings, select  System > Apps & features.
    3. Select the Adobe Lightroom, and then select Uninstall.
    4. Follow the directions on the screen.


    Alternatively, if you are using Lightroom CC 2015, you can uninstall using the Creative Cloud desktop app following these instructions: Uninstall or remove Creative Cloud apps

  2. Download and install Lightroom 2015.0/6.0 using the application installer.


    Note: The installer on this page works for both the perpetual version of Lightroom 6 as well as the Creative Cloud version of Lightroom CC 2015.

  3. Download and install the specific prior update/patch you want to roll back to (e.g. CC 2015.5.1/6.5.1) from here.



If you receive a message that says 'This update is not applicable to you', you’ve missed step 2. The base 2015.0/6.0 release must be installed before attempting to install the update/patch.
