Lightroom Update 3.4.1 available

In Uncategorized on May 27, 2011 at 11:34 am

Adobe has released an update to Lightroom, 3.4.1.  According to their website it includes:

 Additional camera support for several new camera models including the Canon Rebel T3i, Nikon D5100 and Fuji FinePix X100
• Corrections for issues introduced in previous versions of Lightroom 3
• The Lightroom 3.4.1 update includes an important correction for a bug introduced in the Lightroom 3.4 release

If you have jpegs in your catalog, installing the update is very important, as the bug can corrupt a jpeg as you work on it/add a lot of metadata to it (it is rare, but why risk it).

If you open Lightroom and it doesn’t prompt you to update, go to Help>Check for Updates and download.  Once it is downloaded, double-click on the folder to open it, and double-click on the installer program file to launch the process. 

So that Lightroom prompts you when future updates come out, go to Edit (Lightroom on a Mac)>Preferences, and on the General tab, check the box “Automatically check for updates.”

  1. Hi, I am wanting to upgrade from LR2 to LR3. How easy is this, or can problems occur? Is there a site that has directions, specific directions on how to do it without any problems? I have had some problems in the past with LR, so it makes me nervous to do anything new. Thank you so much for your time and help.

    • Michelle, I am not aware of any problems. When you install Lightroom 3, it will find your LR 2 catalog, make a copy of it and upgrade the copy to LR 3. That way if anything does go wrong, your LR 2 catalog is still sitting there.

      Once you do upgrade to LR3, do go to Help>Check for Updates to get this 3.4.1 update.

  2. Thank you Laura.. You make it sound so simple, so I think I will go ahead and give it a try!
