I don't know what version of Lightroom you are using, but I have had several upgrades and updates that have included some useful new features. The ONLY version of Lightroom that is receiving new features right now is Lightroom CC 2015. All older versions (Lightroom 5 and previous) are out of production and will never receive any changes, updates, bug fixes, etc. Lightroom 6 will only receive updates to include new camera support and some bug fixes. Lightroom 6 will not receive any feature updates. If you have suggestions for features that you would like to see included in a future version of Lightroom, here is the link to the forum where you can make your suggestion:
yeah... mileage may vary.
what feature was useful for you?
the last one i deem to be useful for me was the dehaze filter.
for panorama stitching and HDR processing i have better tools.
the LR features lack the abilitys for user tweaking, especially the pano feature.
it just can´t create the same quality than dedicated panorama tools. so i never use it.
adobe has enhanced some features (local adjustments, upright) but it´s all more or less minor stuff.
don´t get me wrong i am all for polishing features.
but it seems that innovation is lacking lately.
Basically, I'm quite happy right now with Lightroom. Yes, there are a few frustrations. But I can work around those. If you have a complaint, or a suggestion, I give you the link. The ball is in your court.
how about that adobe?
Actually, Adobe is way ahead of them here. Back in March, Adobe announced a technology preview of a very similar feature for Lightroom that you can turn on right now. It also uses AI to do a content search of images even if you haven't assigned any keywords. It's web-based, but it became available 5 months ahead of that plug-in.
