    Adobe as advised that the next update to ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) will be the LAST one for Photoshop CS6.

    That leaves either the Creative Cloud Photography program, or looking at an alternative like Affinity Photo or Pixelmator if you're on a Mac. [if you're on Windows, you're kinda screwed anyway]

    If you are doing LR as a DAM that uses PS as a plugin, this change in ACR does not matter.

    Does this apply to Lightroom 6 or just Photoshop CS6? I’m just confused because it seems to be about Photoshop but it’s in the Lightroom blog…

      Hi Tony,

      this does not impact Lightroom 6. Lightroom CC and Lightroom 6 customers will continue to receive camera support

      I’m confused too. The diagram at the top clearly shows using the DNG converter first and then import into Lightroom (i.e. 2 steps instead of 1). Which implies that we can no longer import DNG files straight from the card into Lightroom. Does this only apply if you convert to DNG? What if I am importing Canon camera raw files directly?
      Will camera specific raw files continue to be supported in Lightroom and photoshop without converting to DNG first?
      I don’t understand why you would remove camera raw support from photoshop but retain it in Lightroom.

        Colin, the post speaks to Photoshop CS6 only. It does not pertain to any version of Lightroom. The example workflow for the DNG conversion is just that, an example. It does not represent a change in how the DNG converter works. You should be able to continue using Raw and DNG conversions with Lightroom as you have done in the past.

    So the concern is ACR won't be updated for the stand alone version of the software?
    I'm not too concerned as I plan on keeping my D750 & D7100 for a good few years. By then LR 7 will be out and no doubt subscription only.

    That was the reason for my posting this. ACR for PS CS6 won't be updated any further for newer cameras.

    As to the comments by Tony Northrup, they're only partially true. You can use PS CS6 as an external editor for Lr6, and even LR CC (but why would you, because you have the Creative Cloud and access to Photoshop CC). Many of the tools in PS CS6 have been updated and improved upon in PS CC 2015.

    We should be ok body-wise as I'm on D610 but I'm more thinking Profiles for new lenses? They normally get added later so I guess you'll have to sort out distortion and stuff manually.

    No doubt about Lr 7, Adobe will switch to a fully-greedy subscription model.

    Not just cameras, lenses as well unfortunately, which is not good.

    I don't think there will be a LR 7, it'll just be LR CC.

    I would be very surprised if there is to be a standalone LR 7.

    She does, but apart from my D750 and 105mm Macro, they were all at a very low cost through work.
    I think the argument was something like I could sell the 70-200 2.8 for more money than I paid for all of them (not that I would of course!)
