Adobe updated Lightroom today to add support for 20 cameras and to fix problems that a few customers were having with previous versions of the popular photo processing software. In addition to Lightroom 2.6, the most recent Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter 5.6 are available for immediate download.

Lightroom version 2.6 fixes several random issues that customers were having, such as the crop tool unlocking the aspect ratio after a rotation adjustment. Mac OS X 10.6 users were having problems opening more than two files at a time with the Edit-in-Photoshop function, and were seeing artifacts when panning at a 1:1 ratio in the Develop module. PowerPC customers who were processing raw files were seeing artifacts in highlight areas. All of these problems are solved in the new version of Lightroom.

Lightroom adds support to 20 cameras, most of which are DSLRs but also a few high-end compact cameras. The following models now function with the software:

Canon: 1D Mark IV, 7D, G11, S90
Leaf: Aptus II 5
Mamiya: DM22, DM28, DM33, DM56, M18, M22, M31
Nikon: D3s
Olympus: E-P2
Pentax: K-x
Panasonic: FZ38
Sigma: DP1s
Sony: A500, A550, A850

The new version is available as a free download to existing Lightroom 2 customers. The Camera Raw software is available free to CS4, Elements 8, and Premiere Elements 8 customers. The DNG Converter is free to all.
