Adobe has released the final versions of the Lightroom 5.3 and Camera RAW 8.3 updates with support for new cameras and lens profiles, as well as numerous bug fixes.
Lightroom is still a standalone application for computer users, unlike Photoshop, which has gone the online subscription route. It remains one of the most popular RAW image file processing programs in the world and Adobe is updating it constantly.
