Adobe’s Lightroom photo editing app has just received a major update, while WhatsApp gets read to treat iPhone users. We also have a neat video that will make you cringe!
Those of us who work with photo editing software know how convenient and powerful a tool like Lightroom can be. We also know this app hasn’t been updated in years, which makes today’s news quite exciting. Lightroom 6 is now out as a part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite, or you can buy it for $150.
So what’s new? Sadly, not too much. There are very welcomed performance boosts powered by GPU enhancements. Even older computers are getting a benefit out of this update. The image below can show you what these performance boosts look like.
In addition, users can now take advantage of new features, including HDR Merge and Panorama Merge. These are very welcomed additions, as we used to have to jump over to Photoshop to process such images. Other features include DNG support for mobile, facial recognition and improved syncing capabilities between devices.
Opinion: This update is available today, so go check it out if you are a Creative Cloud subscriber. I am updating as soon a I am done with work!
Apple fans have been left quiet since last month, when Android users got a handy update that granted them the ability to make voice calls. A new update is gracing the iOS side, but don’t go rushing to try it just yet. While the update has already hit the Apple App Store, most of you won’t see this feature rolling out untilt he “coming several weeks”.
The idea here is that you can make voice calls using data, avoiding any type of call charges or usage on your minutes.
Opinion: This is especially awesome for those of us who call internationally or roam often. And we know many of you international users don’t get unlimited minutes! WhatsApp will now replace calls, the way it replaced texts messages for many of you.
Drones can cost thousands of dollars, so it must be the biggest cringing experience to see it falling off the sky. Especially when there is nothing but water right below it! This is exactly what happened to YouTube user Ryan Chatfield, who managed to save his drone from drowning to its death.
Opinion: I suppose the cool part is that you can see him running from very far to save his baby. Check it out!
