Author: Suzanne Mathia

Adobe CCLightroom CC 2015.4 and Lightroom 6.4 are now available on Adobe.com.

This release provides additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.

This release also includes a new Boundary Warp feature for Creative Cloud members.

Introducing Boundary Warp

Stitched panoramas often have non-rectangular boundaries. There are several ways to handle irregular boundaries.

  1. Apply a rectangular crop. quick and simple, but important image details near the edges may be lost due to cropping.
  2. Content Aware Fill (in Photoshop) to fill in the transparent areas outside the boundary. This can be effective, but may require multiple attempts to obtain a pleasing result.
  3. Warping – in Photoshop can be complex and you may end up with odd results

This new feature provides another approach to handling the irregular boundary of panoramas. The feature analyzes the boundary and warps the image so that its edges fit a rectangular frame.  In other words, its all done for you on the fly…quick easy and effective.  ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU LIGHTROOM!
