Adobe Lightroom 5.3 Release Candidate Available

Release Candidate software is sort of like beta software. It’s been tested but Adobe wants to get feedback from users before they make it official and push it out as a full update. Besides support for new cameras and lenses, the new Lightroom Release Candidate also fixes some Lightroom 5 bugs, including problems with upgrading and optimizing Lightroom Catalogs, a video playback issue, Slideshow problems, and Publishing errors. For a complete list of bug fixes, check the Lightroom 5.3 RC page on the Adobe Labs Web site.

The Lightroom 5.3 and Camera Raw 8.3 Release Candidate updates are available now on the Adobe Labs Web site. To download and install them, use the links below:
