Lightroom Classic 13.0 new tools aren’t as game changing as the masking, AI Noise Reduction and Generative Fill (Photoshop) updates we’ve had over the last couple of years, but they still give you some interesting new ways to develop your photos.
If you’re a Lightroom Classic subscriber you can also use Lightroom for mobile, Adobe’s app for tablets and smartphones and integrate it with your workflow in various ways. Adobe has added lots of new features, making it more useful than ever.
Lightroom Classic develop module will help you work faster and more efficiently when you’re developing photos in Lightroom Classic. These are the most useful, the ones you could use most often.
By now, everyone has already heard of ChatGPT, Midjourney or any of the other artifical intelligences you can now talk to or make use of. Where it got interesting, was in early 2023, when Adobe released a Photoshop Beta version with AI features and staggering capabilities.
We’ve seen Adobe’s implementation of generative AI in Adobe Firefly, the web-based tool for creating entire synthetic images from text prompts. Generative Fill uses Firefly technology to edit existing images in a more targeted way, bringing generative AI to Photoshop as a standard feature soon.
By this point, you’ve probably seen Adobe’s beta of Generative Fill in Photoshop, which allows you to expand a photo beyond its original borders. It is an incredible feat of technology, but brings up complicated questions: who owns that new, expanded photo? Is it copyrightable?
Adobe turned the imaging world upside down with its release earlier this week of an incredible new AI-powered feature called “Generative Fill,” which lets you simply type what you want it to add to your photo (or create from scratch), and it not only does it, it does a pretty fantastic job.
A new AI-powered tool has been added to aid us in removing noise from our photos. Built into the Enhance set of features (Super Resolution and Raw details), we now have the ability to reduce noise with a single click. You can launch Denoise from the Detail panel in Develop, or via the Photo > Enhance menu.

Adobe Lightroom Classic is an incredibly powerful raw-processing tool, but it has so many layers and features it can take a long time for users, especially beginners, to discover them all. Many of these tools are even hidden behind a layer of keyboard shortcuts or obscure multi-level menus that can make it confusing for even a seasoned professional to leverage.
