Learn more about new features and other enhancements in the latest release of Adobe Lightroom.
1. Add Blur and Bokeh effects using Lens Blur
Adjust depth in a photo using the AI-powered Lens Blur in Lightroom. This new tool lets you blur the background or foreground by making a depth map of the photo using Adobe Sensei.
You can try this feature in Lightroom desktop by following the steps below:
2. Select Edit > Lens Blur.
To automatically apply the blur using Adobe Sensei, select Apply. Once the blur is applied, you can do the following:
Adjust the strength of the blur effect with the Blur Amount slider.
Select any Bokeh effect from the given options: Circle, Soap Bubble, 5-blade, Ring, or Cat’s Eye.
Adjust the brightness of out-of-focus light sources with the Boost slider.
If a photo has an existing depth map, Lens Blur will use it unless you specify otherwise.
Use the Focal Range to adjust the range of depth values that are in focus.
Subject Focus: Automatically sets the focal range using AI-powered subject detection.
Point or Area Focus: Manually set the focal range by clicking or dragging on the photo.
Select Visualize Depth to view the depth map and focal range. To manually adjust the depth map, select Refine and then adjust the Focus or Blur amount using the Brush size, Feather, and Flow sliders.

3. Edit and export HDR photos in Adobe Lightroom

This means you can now capture HDR photos (using your mobile device), merge, edit, display, and export them in Adobe Lightroom.
Depending on your device’s compatibility, you can easily use the HDR feature in Lightroom desktop and mobile.

The Histogram is automatically visible with SDR and HDR sections when you select the HDR option in the Edit panel.
