Enhance details of your raw images
Powered by Adobe Sensei

You can now quickly enhance fine details in your raw images with Enhance Details. By using Enhance Details, you get higher resolution, more accurate rendition of fine details, better preservation of small colors, and reduced moiré patterns and false colors.

To use this feature:

  1. In the Library or Develop module, select a raw image that you want to enhance.
  2. From the menu bar, choose Photo > Enhance Details.
  3. In the Preview dialog that appears, hold down the hand cursor to view the original image and release it to view the effect of Enhanced Details.
  4. Click Enhance to apply the effect on the image.
Lightroom Classic creates a new enhanced DNG image (with a suffix '-Enhanced' in the original filename) next to the original source file.

I can see a small improvement in my Fuji RAW files, but the process also produces 100mb+ DNGs. Capture One might still be a better option for Fuji shooters. I need to test the Enhance Details feature more and compare it with an image processed with C1.

What Adobe really need to do is address the X-Trans demosaic algorthm for RAF files. Until that is sorted, there will always be “worms” and artefacts if the files are oversharpened. It’s only a noticeable issue when zoomed way in. I’ll stick with Iridient X-Transformer as a LR plug-in for now.

It didn't seem to produce much benefit in the Pentax and Oly files I tried, mostly landscapes and wildlife.

I thought that was in part the reason for this feature; as the Lightroom Queen noted about the new Enhance feature:

"On most photos, the standard demosaic is already extracting all of the available detail, but you may see a difference if:

  • You’re a Fuji X-Trans photographer (especially if you’ve noticed “worm” artifacts when sharpening your photos)."

Oh I see. Thanks. I’ll need to look into this, just not had the time yet.

What Adobe needs to do is sort out its scalling issues in Lightroom, pretty much runs like SH*T on any iMac 5k and iMac pro to the point its almost unusable.

So frustrating that my 2010 mac pro is faster than any of the 5k iMacs.

Scaling issues? I have none, and use Lr and Ps on a 2014 5k iMac.

Really are you running it in low res mode? Only way I can get it to run smoothly quick search it the internet is full of the same issues. Like I said my 2010 Mac Pro with the ACD runs circles around it which is bizarre.

I run my monitors in "Default for Display" (I have a 2560x1440 external in addition to the 5k iMac). That's essentially the retina mode, or more or less the "native" resolution as we used to call it. No issues with Lr or Ps at all. I'd love it if they worked faster, but given that Lr needs to re-draw parameters to make new previews it's fine. If I need something much faster for browsing I use Bridge, or Fast Raw Viewer.

I seem to recall some reports of stuttering years ago with Lr; I haven't seen any of that in a long long time, using the same machine I've had since then.

Im on the most recent version, have 1:1 rendered have the standard preview size on auto and the performance is awful.

Loads of threads on the adobe forums about it. 40gbs of ram, got the cache set to 100gb and its running on a USB C gen 3 raid 0 SSD drive and the performance is awful. The 5k display is set to act like 2560x1440 like my ACD yet the ACD performance is far superior which is where the scaling issue is.

Pretty much the same as the below video.

Depends on the files your using, I use 5DSr, 5DMKIV, 5DMKIII files and the MKIII 22mp files are fine but the 50mp files are awful to deal with.

I can replicate those gray-box images during a fast scroll if I scroll through older 50mb images that I no longer have previews for (my previews are set to go away in 30 days, which I think is default). Not quite as choppy as the video though. And it kinda depends on whether the images I'm scrolling have a bunch of adjustments (Lr redraws each from the stored parameters, hence that can slow things down). But it doesn't affect any of my work since I pretty much never need to scroll like that. If I wanna browse, I use a browser for that. Or I make previews and go do something else while Lr generates them. Sorry it isn't working for you.
