the latest Lightroom version (2015.6.1 - 1083169)
Ahem! 2015.6.1 ( 6.6.1 ) was released in July 2016 and there has been about 16 updates to Lightroom since them, so definitely not the "latest" ! (Now at Classic v8.1 by Subscription only)
For "Standalone" versions- 6.14 was the 'Last'.
How can I make a new annual catalog
And this goes against the most common advice which is -to have only one catalog. (Unless you have a valid reason?)
The correct answer to your question is that given by dj_paige
Ahem! Serendipity strikes! I am a geologist-user and (obviously) not as well versed in my tools as I should be. Yes, I do only drive the Rolls down the block to pick up coffee and a newspaper. For what I do, haze reduction is LR's most powerful tool and the rest is just there, of comparatively marginal use.
Why do I think that my version is the most recent? Because it is what Creative Cloud sent me, the last time I clicked. Until I read this message, I was completely clueless because I did not miss all the new whistles and bells except for not being able to move haze reduction up into the tools that I do use. Why did Creative cloud send me old software? I'm going to find out now that I know
Thank you WobertC.
'Dehaze' is now in the Basic panel of the develop module- and very useful too.
As for the "most recent"- The Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop App has some preference options (click the 3-dots & Preferences), including "Notifications", which is advised. Also [Launch at Logon] means that the App will always be available to check versions, etc.
Also use the Desktop App to check for 'Updates' from the 3-dot menu.
"what Creative Cloud sent" If you cannot install v8.1, it may be your OS will not support the 'latest' versions of Lr. Lightroom Classic CC system requirements
"a geologist"- I saw a lecture presentation from a geologist using cross-polarization and macro/micro photographs. The images were stunning in their patterns, colour, etc- very graphic and entertaining.
