Other enhancements

On Lightroom desktop

  • In an album, when you click the Sort icon () in the bottom panel and apply any sorting option such as Capture Date or Import Date, it is applied to the selected album only. To know more about sorting options, see Sort photos.
  • On Windows, applying Enhanced Details is faster when you use certain NVIDIA cards. For details, see Enhanced Details.
  • Create seamless 360-degree panoramas with the edge-aware Adobe Camera Raw update.

To know how to create a 360-degree or Spherical panorama, see Create panoramas.
