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.
Enhance provides a set of features such as Raw Details and Super Resolution to help improve image quality using Camera Raw.
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.
Your computer must meet the following minimum technical specifications to use the Enhance features:
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.

The enhanced image is saved as a new DNG file with the filename in this format: 'Original filename-Enhanced.dng' and is placed next to the source image.
Raw Details is only applicable to Bayer and X-Trans mosaic raw files.
Raw Details does not apply to the following types of source images:
